Feels Drop New Single Ahead of New Album and Release Party at the Echo

Shoegaze meets psychedelic on Feels’ new single; it is a catchy hybrid of a song, reminiscent of both Blondie and The Kinks. With a title like “Awful Need,” it is surprisingly aloof, following the band’s previous grunge release, “Car.” Both new singles will appear on the local quartet’s forthcoming album, Post Earth, due out on […]

Dinosaur Jr. blends guitar shredding, beautiful melodies in memorable FYF Fest set

Saturday’s performance at FYF Fest had me kicking myself for not crossing it off the list sooner, as the wizard-looking J Mascis led the charge in a high-energy set.
