waxtablet_highspirits_list

You can never shed a label

The Wax Tablet
Milled Pavement post a ton of albums onto Bandcamp, and the indie-punk band High Spirits take the garage into space.

waxtablet_greef_list

The Ax to fall

The Wax Tablet
A chapter break for Biddeford's mighty Oak and the Ax; a Maine metal blog hatches an ambitious plan; and a look back at last year's debut album by Greef, an experimental folk project by a member of Butcher Boy

music_carokhan_list

Fire on fire

Caro Khan introduce themselves as Pyronauts
From the varying deliveries and styles through the three fully instrumental tracks, there’s a lot to consider in Pyronauts , with equal attractions in playing it loud in the car with the windows down and in the headphones.

music_dynamop_list

Hip hop summer

New records from Alias; the Yeti; Dynamo-P & Micodin
For pure output, it’s hard to argue Portland is anything but a hip hop city.

Empire strikes...again

The Wax Tablet
Empire back at full strength, and some dazzling melodic noise coming from remote Maine

music_oldcrow1_list

Seven-man army

Old Crow Medicine Show arrive with the Remedy
Lately, it’s been open season on “Wagon Wheel,” which has become the acoustic musician’s “Freebird,” one of the very few songs that people actually know well enough to find it funny to request.

waxtabs_bullymammoth_list

Hitting the wrong note right

The Wax Tablet
Sunset Hearts' unique Kickstarter campaign, and Bully Mammoth's burly new EP

music_ghostcover_list

What you say, Ryan?

Ghost returns with Proper Placement
Ryan’s calling card is his sincerity. While the production and presentation are of a genre, you won’t find him talking about puffing the chron or dissing women or dropping a million f-bombs or using a bunch of contemporary rap jargon. He’s got a plan and he executes it, with more variety and modes of attack than he’s had on display to this point.

Betty Cody, 1921-2014

The Maine music community lost a hidden giant last week with the death of Betty Cody, at 92.

music_pigboatdistracted_lis

Adventures in lo-fi

Pigboat treat us as equals
One obvious reason for heavy music is catharsis, a healthy release for all the built-up bullshit modern life entails. Like kickboxing class for suburban women, but with lots of black clothing and long hair.

rock_endlessjags_list

Desperate pleasures

Endless Jags  Sell the Banquet , keep the mess
What are the Endless Jags desperate for? Good question.

music_mamasboomshack_list

Full horns ahead

 Mama's Boomshack explore the Speed of Soul
An arrangement of alto and baritone sax, trombone, and trumpet combining to front a band like Mama’s Boomshack grabs your attention so completely. There just aren’t many bands doing that.

music_pigboatalbum_list

Everything old is new again

Portland dons a cape and soars this summer
Perhaps you missed Old Port Fest. As much as that event might be a shit-show of faux-Bourbon Street nonsense, the way Portland effortlessly throws up bands that any tourist would think are riding hits on the radio is impressive as hell.

localmusic_particles_list

Double displacement

When Particles Collide release the explosive Photoelectric
When Particles Collide's first proper full-length, Photoelectric , fulfills all the promise of last year’s excellent EP, Ego .

Before they wash away

The sonic portraits of Foam Castles
Tyler Jackson’s Foam Castles has been an ongoing, shapeshifting project since the beginning.

localmusic_GWP_list

Miles ahead

Elastic Smile stretches Great Western Plain way out
A demonstration of Neu-ish kraut rhythms done up in prodigious Yankee style, with unattractive vocal harmonies either deadpanned or brazenly off-key, and a guitar tone that could best be described as desperate, the sprawling Elastic Smile is as much of an original statement as a daunting one.
