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.

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_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.

music_purse_list

Get in and thrash around

Purse snatch and grab for attention on Indiana
As far as I can figure, this new four-song EP is the first release they’ve had, the first digitized capture of their raw take on stripped-down metal and punk.

music_rattlesnakes_list1

Adult crash

Fattened up and re-fanged, the Rattlesnakes whip out their best
What they’ve done with Get Your Fill then is significant. The ‘Snakes fifth album is, in a very real way, a return to form.

localmusic_RLM_list

What did you expect?

On Supernova, LaMontagne mixes it up — per usual
As with the best of LaMontagne’s work, his delivery is infused with passion and heartache and nostalgia, the kind of emotion that makes you feel like he can peek right into your very soul.

Into the wild

Yeti take you off the trails
The Yeti, who recently released the full-length Abominable, take the album-of-the-year talent of Trails, with producer The Lin and vocalist Syn the Shaman, and tack on Dray Sr., lending a deep-throated and full-bodied delivery in counterpoint to Shaman’s growling angry.
