Pretty Saro celebrates latest record with show at Club Passim 07.23

The music of Boston’s Pretty Saro has a shimmer to it, a softness that soothes the listener while eliciting from the same a smile or two. It is the storytelling in each song that makes this folk group so intriguing: stories of love found and lost out west and of towns long disremembered all come to life among the myriad of string instrument harmonies and fine vocal melodies. Racing Back to You is the band’s latest record, perfectly encapsulating the spirit of New England folk music. Each track offers a story seemingly unconnected that finds a way to weave itself into a larger tale throughout the record. The themes of friendship, love, and home longing all help to make Racing Back to You a relatable album that deserves a good listen. Pretty Saro is celebrating the release of the record with a performance at Club Passim in Cambridge on July 23rd. We are streaming “Hindsight” for you below. - Rene Cobar

Weekend Warrior - July 19 - 21

Taiwan Housing Project have released another lethal LP Sub-Language Trustees, which is now available via ever/never records. The band generates a jarring intensity, shaking up the status quo. Kilynn Lunsford’s vocals demand one’s attention, in a mesmerizing fashion as the experimental instrumentation swirls in a chaotic, post-apocalyptic fashion. Unlikely combinations create unsettling sonic surroundings in the aftermath. Thrown into a cacophony of chaos that rumbles and roars, the band leads you through the fiery force of the unknown. This Saturday night, Cousin Danny’s will be hosting the Taiwan Housing Project’s record release celebration, with support from The Doilies and Eat (who were just added to the bill due to Chronic Anxiety’s Mitch Esparza being injured during a strong-arm robbery – we are certainly wishing him well and hoping for a speedy recovery). Let’s also keep our fingers crossed that it’s way too hot for the piggies to spoil a good time. Stay cool & hydrated out there! (Photo by Rich Wexler) – Michael Colavita

Resounding No wields noise perfectly, play In the West 8.22

Weird noise plays opposite scorched guitars on Gross Dominance, the new EP from New Jersey’s Resounding No. Whether this noise adds to a dramatic, calamitous conclusion on opener “Hexed Pet” or adds a gritty depth of sound to vocals on tracks like “Hunter’s Moon,” Resounding No understands how to wield reverb and dissonance to their advantage. This, paired with the Garden State trio’s command of songwriting and precise percussive licks helps to deliver a tight extended play that rips from start to finish, providing a rust-laden, engaging listen for fans of melodic punk and garage rock. Get a good pair of earphones before you let Gross Dominance wash over you, and catch Resounding No at In the West on August 22nd alongside Didi and Magic Ghrelin. -Connor Beckett McInerney

Adam Melchor's "Joyride" is a lesson in letting go

Adam Melchor's songs are stories about family—and how the experiences he's acquired with time gain a deeper meaning as he grows up. On his latest single, "Joyride," the LA-via-New Jersey singer-songwriter writes about the challenge of letting go when it's the best course of action to take, using his parents' stolen childhood truck as a symbol that mirrors their eventual divorce—a lesson in perspective that taught him to value those valuable moments before they're gone. The clamor of a trumpet only augments his reflection, an instrument that brings clarity of thought to his otherwise acoustic rumination.

"Joyride" follows the release of his sophomore EP, Plan on You, which was released earlier this year. Melchor will join Rodrigo and Gabriella on a string of tour dates, including a hometown show at the Greek Theater on July 23. Watch the accompanying video below. Juan Rodríguez

Sean Green @ The Whistler (7/28)

Sean Green dropped his latest single, “Driver”, last month, and now is planning to release the next single, “Thinking’ Bout U”, from his forthcoming EP, “Perfume Hill”, on July 28th.

Green performs a brand of music he has dubbed Millennial Jazz, but it lands somewhere on the Yacht Rock spectrum.

You can help Green celebrate the release of the new single on July 28th at The Whistler with Late Nite Laundry.
