Service release brash, expansive EP “CHARM”

Experimental-noise newcomers Service have released an aggressive debut EP, cheekily titled CHARM. The Boston quartet covers plenty of ground in the three track release, shifting from assertive punk dudes to meandering noise-heads by opening up tight, mathy structures into longform explorations. Though the momentum of CHARM dips from intensely focused to wayward abstraction, the volume is always up to 10, and there’s a great deal of integrity behind every note. Check out Service on December 17th at Deep Thoughts in Jamaica Plain, doors at 8pm. -Charley Ruddell





Caustic Touch, EMS, House of Low Culture and Daniel Menche share new 4-way split

 Harsh noise enthusiasts rejoice, as today a 4-way split from some of the most deft musicians in that genre field. Featuring dynamically skilled artist Aaron Turner (Sumac, Old Man Gloom, Isis) and Faith Coloccia of Seattle's Mamiffer as House of Low Culture, Daniel Menche, Andrea K.'s of Vice Device solo project Caustic Touch and EMS, the split showcases each artists' ability to make even the most grating of sounds appealing.

Each artist got at least one track on the split, but Caustic Touch surely commanded much of the album having contributed three. The album carries itself almost like a grating tale, with House of Low Culture's "The Pervasive Mind" as the album's exposition, Caustic Touch's "Desiccating Wind" beginning the rising action, "Is She Ectoplasm?" by Daniel Menche as the falling action, and "Hierarchy of Bodies" by EMS ending it as the resolution.

There's a beauty to its discordance that makes the album gripping. What will be even more interesting to see is how each of these artist's translates these tracks into live performances. See how each of them does it at the release show for the split tonight 12.15 at Modular 8.





Weekend Warrior, December 15 - 17

If you’re looking for soulful, pertinent, lo-fi rock that simultaneously exhibits grace and grit, Las Vegas transplant Shamir delivers the goods. Bailey’s latest record, Revelations (Father/Daughter Records), traverses a diverse sonic spectrum. Digging into one’s introspective depths in free-floating fashion or meshing those smoothly sincere vocals with grimy guitar, there’s an innate combination of accessibility and raw power at play. With elegance and ease, the multi-talented artist delivers powerful messages, striking a chord with oh so many and creating a formidable force to be reckoned with. This Saturday evening, Shamir steps into the basement of First Unitarian Church, supported by the Canadian tandem Partner, whose bright brand of riff-laced powerpop cultivates a potently fun, “not taking yourself too seriously” relatability. – Michael Colavita
