Boston rapper Jay Minor plays AS220 in Providence tomorrow (1/19)

Conveying a gritty minimalism, Boston-based emcee Jay Minor's downtempo tracks compel with their refusal to be merry. While the gospel-swirled "Liquid.Screens" from last year seemingly portrays a lovesick soul's search for solace in television, the jazzy "The Peter Piper Theory" (streaming below) from New Year's Eve harshly yet vitally depicts post-violence duress. Perhaps taking cues from Earl Sweatshirt's great sophomore album 'I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside,' these tracks aren’t light but definitely intriguing. Jay Minor plays at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island tomorrow (1/19). – Zach Weg

Providence singer/songwriter Krista Baroni plays AS220 on Thursday (1/14)

Last year, Providence-based singer/songwriter Krista Baroni released ‘The Alabaster Girl,’ an album that quietly revels in a kind of sleepy beauty. Comprised of such guitar-plucked tracks as "I'm Not Myself Today" and "Joanna," the folk-based effort transports the listener as a children;s book would while impressively portraying the hardships of adulthood. The former song, for example, depicts an emotionally wounded soul striving for serenity amidst the noise of modern life, soft guitars cooing the listener to calm. Krista Baroni plays at AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island on Thursday (1/14). – Zach Weg

Providence rock quartet The Attending plays The Met on January 8th

Bookended by the guitar-strummed memory songs “Picking Up Speed” and “Cash” (about the titular musician and his brother) and including the drum-surged track “Not the Books to Read” (streaming below), ‘Deep Peace of the Singing Earth’ by Providence rock quartet The Attending is a piercingly moving album. As The Antlers did on ‘Hospice,’ The Attending bravely unburies pain on this March-released effort but also allows for a catharsis that perhaps only music can provide. The Attending plays at The Met in Providence on January 8th. - Zach Weg





Providence synth-pop trio Triangle Forest plays AS220 on 12/19

This past August, Providence synth-pop trio Triangle Forest shared "Pluto" (streaming below), an aptly-titled song of outer space solitude. Listening to the drum-hopped track, one may hear the forlorn jumpiness of such '80s hits as The Human League's "Don't You Want Me?" but it has an underlying poignancy that still resonates in the 2010s. As the chorus of “Pluto” goes, "All this time,/We've been out in this cold," but the frigidness of the titular planet can be made warm. Triangle Forest plays AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island on 12/19. - Zach Weg
