Tall Horse releases intriguing double single "Dogwater/Bedwetter"

Tall Horse offers a curious blend of country and alternative rock to start your week right. The band's leading guitar riffs and bright basslines distort to contrast the distinctive vocals outpouring with emotion. The Portland, Maine band's new double single "Dogwater/Bedwetter" is Red Hot Chili Peppers' soft side meets Kings of Leon for an unconventional sound born in New England. The rhythms are steady, the atmosphere easy-going, the breakdowns heartfelt: the music is as emotionally honest as it gets. The group's latest effort should jolt them back into the New England music scene, and we are intrigued. The double single is streaming below to cure your Monday blues. - Rene Cobar





Chelsey Meyer releases deeply-layered single "Your Mind Amazes Me (Shots!)"

We are keeping with today’s indie-pop theme by presenting to you the music of Boston’s Chelsey Meyer. The singer-songwriter’s voice is a quick shot of endorphins to the brain, a light to dissipate the gloomiest of thoughts. Despite having a tinge of DIY to it, Chelsey’s latest single “Your Mind Amazes Me (Shots!)” has a sophistication to it that is undeniable. The song’s chipper vocal inflections and grandiose instrumentation are almost theatrical in delivery: piano leads, a warm bassline, and Meyer’s vocal range tell a great story in full performance. The track is a mass collaboration that Chelsey is grateful for; they should all be proud for they have delivered New England a solid tune to forget the world for a while. We are streaming the new single below. - Rene Cobar

New Whaler Jr. LP Available for Streaming

RFA bassist Brendan McHale, a.k.a. Whaler Jr., has a new album out now via Castle Crank Records, titled Wasting Time. Bright, at ease, acoustic guitar and keys radiate an inherent warmth, which draws one toward the shoreline. An inviting, unpretentious nature is soaked in vocal harmonies, soothing the tension and offering reprieve. Tonight, Whaler Jr.'s record release will be held at PhilaMOCA, with support from NYC's The Misters and Tokyo's The Molice.
