“Guster: Live Acoustic”

“Guster: Live Acoustic”

The Boston natives in Guster may be known for their onstage humor, but their newest release Guster: Live Acoustic is all about the music. The band’s latest release, recorded live on their Spring 2012 acoustic tour with the Guster String Players packs all of the punch without any of the unnecessary bells and whistles. The […]

“The Lives Inside…” by Matt Pond

“The Lives Inside…” by Matt Pond

Born and raised in New Hampshire, New England native Matt Pond has quite the success story. His name may not ring a bell, but you have probably heard his work on the small and big screens. A song featured in a Starbucks’ holiday commercial (“Snow Day”) as well as co-writing the score for the film […]

“Muchacho” by Phosphorescent

“Muchacho” by Phosphorescent

Phosphorescent, the pseudonym for the recording project of Alabama raised, Brooklyn based musician Matthew Houck, has been recording music under this name since 2001. Stylistically, his music is habitually hard to pin down, and his latest release, Muchacho, is no exception. Houck explores elements of folk, country, synth-pop, and experimental music all held together with […]

“Awayland” by Villagers

“Awayland” by Villagers

A quick glance at the latest issue of Mojo magazine will reveal a striking and somewhat grotesque illustration of Villagers songwriter and singer, Conor O’Brien. Drawn as a Slaughter House Five reading fetus that is sharing space with a gecko in the belly of an ocean wave, the image itself is a bit too psychedelic […]

Discover: “The Messenger”

Discover: “The Messenger”

WERS is featuring Johnny Marr’s The Messenger as our March Album of the Month! Johnny Marr is still playing the electric guitar. And damn well too, which diehard indie rock fans should be grateful for. His first major project after a long stint of playing axe on other bands’ records, The Messenger is proof that […]

“Daniel the Brave” by Adam Ezra Group

“Daniel the Brave” by Adam Ezra Group

On their recent album, Daniel the Brave, Boston-based rockers the Adam Ezra Group enter relatively unknown territory. Or, as the group puts it in the album’s liner notes, “Most of the tracks [on the album] are recorded live. Some are first takes. Some involve sounds we’ve never used on an album before.” The result of […]

“How I Knew Her” by Nataly Dawn

“How I Knew Her” by Nataly Dawn

One half of indie folk duo Pomplamoose, Nataly Dawn has had quite the success over the past three years. With her voice gracing a national Toyota commercial, appearing on NPR’s All Things Considered, and lending her talents to a Barry Manilow track, Dawn announced a solo-effort in 2011. The album financed by a KIckstarter campaign with […]

“Lines We Trace” by Hey Marseilles

If you are planning to take a road trip this spring break and are looking for a sound track to inspire your adventure, look no further than Hey Marseilles’ Lines We Trace, available March fifth.

“Honeys” by Pissed Jeans

“Honeys” by Pissed Jeans

Pissed Jeans is one of those bands that you know what they’re sound is going to be simply by reading their name. It’s a sound that’s gritty, angry, and unapologetic, drawing influences from ‘80s and ‘90s noise-rock. It’s full of passion and a whole lot of head-banging glory. Honeys, their most recent release, doesn’t stray […]
