Video Premiere: Dylan Ewen – ‘Fkuu Me’
Video
Jamaica Plain's resident sad boy Dylan Ewen knows how to get emotional in the grooviest way possible. The BUFU Records jack-of-all-trades often croons about the perils of heartbreak, failure, and boredom in the most blunt way possible, which, in some misery-loves-company type of way, ends up translating into some pretty sweet party music.

Sidewalk Driver: Dodging Normality in Sound and Style
Local Music
The outlandish live antics of Sidewalk Driver are practically legendary and perhaps quintessential to anyone who considers themselves a true fan of the Boston Music Scene. From his avalanche rock and roll energy to his always captivating onstage get-up, frontman Tad McKitterick is completely comfortable in his own renown. In fact, he seemingly revels in it. So it's only natural for him to deflect predictable inquiries regarding his stage persona with the greatest of ease. "I'm not a very image conscience person. I don't perform like a normal person. I don't act like a normal person--so why should I look like one?" More

Fat Creeps Band Together for Sophomore Album ‘Must Be Nice’
Photos
Fat Creeps is often described in simplistic genre categories, but Gracie Jackson doesn’t consider the band just garage or surf. One of her favorite descriptions she has heard of the band is "gothic surf," because she agrees that there is something a little darker there.  Describing the band as just surf rock isn’t really an apt depiction, it leaves too much out of the picture. It doesn’t evoke the melancholic harmonies of the two front women, or the rowdy places their songs can go, driven by pounding percussion. More

Fine Dining with Parks, Playing The Sinclair Friday
Local Music
The vibrant effervescence that beams brightly from Parks’ catchy up-tempo track, “Sweater Weather,” is the kind of warmth that supersedes any other Boston-based band trying to find their place in the sun. Packed with bucolic arrangements and delightful vocals, ‘Weather’ serves as a precursor to the inevitability that frontman Brian King is on the verge of becoming an indie pop savant. The catalyst to King’s flourishing creativity is rooted in the power of reinvention. More
