Ringtail debuts edgy single "Ask the Dust," plays Midway Cafe 03.13

Boston’s waterfront neighborhood of Charlestown is currently echoing the screaming guitar solos and furious rhythms of its local heroes Ringtail. The quartet of gentlemen that comprise the group has released a new single titled “Ask the Dust,” which immediately revs up and blasts off into a shoegaze paradise of dreamy electric guitar leads, raw vocal deliveries, and eruptive drum fills. With hints of sweet shoegaze and spicy stoner metal, the new song is a treat you can savor for a while. The group is gearing up for a hometown show at Midway Cafe on March 13th, and for a strong 2020 to come. Stream the new single below for a sick blend of styles your midweek deserves. - Rene Cobar

James Blonde - Inspirational Pop-Rock Single "Hundred Bucks"

Pop-Rock Trio James Blonde are back with a groovy, inspirational tune “Hundred Bucks”. This track is their personal explanation on money not buying happiness. In their words the story goes through “different situations in which you may find yourself looking for fun or comfort.” Their excellent harmonies are in full effect in this one as well. James Blonde will be playing The Garrison on March 11th along with Courage My Love. – Kris Gies

Holy Wave shines at Mosaic Sound Collective’s Pop-up Party

 


As the crowd began to fill Mohawk indoors for Texas psych-rock staple Holy Wave, Mosaic Sound Collective founder Dan Redman took the stage. He spoke on the mission of the organization, the growth they’ve seen, and plans for the future. In almost opposite energy, attention was directed to a live mural painting by Kengo Hioki, aka “Yellow” from comic punk act Peelander-Z. Hioki, who performed music later in the night, screamed “I don’t know how to paint!” and began to attack a huge yellow tarp with giant pink brush strokes and blue splatter. The mural quickly became fully realized, colors dripping down and seeping into one another, and as “Yellow” yelled his adieu and focus was shifted back to the stage.

 

Holy Wave took their places behind their instruments and began their first tune. The 5-piece seemed to breathe the same breath, interlocked drums and bass grounded sprawling synths and woven guitars creating a thick aura of tactile motion. Many of the song’s arrangements seamlessly grew from their initial grooves into denser, more intricate resolutions. Each of the band’s singing voices were so distinct, fresh vocals and lush harmonies ebbed and flowed from track to track. A multitude of sounds criss-crossed through the audience’s ears as effects pedals and samplers were utilized to distance the group from more tiresome rock groups. Evoking Pink Floyd and Spaceman 3, these compositional choices make the band truly psychedelic. 

 

Towards the end of the set, center stage guitarist/keyboardist/singer Ryan Fuson told the crowd the set had been entirely new songs. With their last album Adult Fear being released early 2018, a new record seems just on the horizon.

PREMIERE: Modern Diet release latest single “Post Grad”

The lyricially insightful, thinking-persons rock of Brooklyn's Modern Diet returns with their latest single “Post Grad” premiering here on the Deli in time for Valentine's Day. However, the sentiment expressed here focuses on an existential crisis of being, rather than traditional romantic notions. Chiming open note guitar chords, soulful keyboards, bright tambourine percussion and a progression defining bassline immediately establish wistful sentimentality for the lyrics that follow. “Sticking to the script I used to know. Making plans and standing up to go. All my old tricks slip into places as we carry on. It's a three piece suit made of stone and it weighs a ton. Take it off for me won't you?” These vocals are delivered with clarity touched by just the right amount of contemporary studio enhancements. Open spaces are provided in the mix for click-clack percussion and celestial rising ambiance. While the title implies what is learned after basic formal schooling, the emphasis focuses on it's struggle. “Meanwhile I keep getting older. Go uphill, pushing my boulder – to fall down, back to the bottom and up once more,” is how the defining chorus goes. The track is available now and can be had (along with their other work) via the band's linktree here. - Dave Cromwell
