Song of the Week | Aubrey Haddard – I Should Know Better

The new WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight is focused on the impressive debut single, “I Should Know Better,” from local singer-songwriter Aubrey Haddard. The Boston-based musician is putting the finishing touches on her upcoming debut, full-length album, Blue Part, slated to be released this summer 2018. You may be saying to yourself “Hey I recognize her” and if you spend your time frequenting area venues like Atwood’s Tavern, Lizard Lounge, & Thunder Road (and you should be!) you most certainly do.

[bandcamp width=100% height=42 album=2504124931 size=small bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 track=3477670531] This is a sad post, because it’s about a really fun band calling it a day. This is a happy post, because they’ve got one show left – tonight! – and it promises to be a good one. The Digs have been doing pop-punk right for a couple years now, but they’re going to all start doing other things instead, so they’re throwing one last bash tonight at the Middle East Upstairs, along with Hey Zeus, Psychic Dog, and The Pickup.

HEY YOU GUY-Y-Y-Y-YS!!! Did I get your attention?  Yes, I did just open this post with the opening phrase of everyone’s favorite educational television show, The Electric Company, for no other reason than that sums up how we are feeling that our favorite time of the year is only one sleep away. We have been eagerly anticipating the music extravaganza about to unfold this weekend and have counted the days for eight thousand six hundred and eighty eight hours to the moment we are all back at the folk fort. If you have any doubt on the truth of the statement…

New Music | Shovels & Rope – Botched Execution

We are just two weeks away from the release of the new album, Little Seeds, from Shovels & Rope and earlier today the duo premiered their latest tune, “Botched Execution,” accompanied by a super-slick video made to look like a retro comic book. The song is hip-shaking, boot-stomping fun about a man on the run from the law after surviving a poorly executed execution, and the video keeps up the frenetic pace with a Sin City type flare. I bet this is going to be a helluva lot of fun live! Speaking of live, don’t forget Shovels & Rope will be in Boston on…

Saturday at Newport Folk 2016 in Photos

Saturday at the Folk Fest… Remember our Friday Folk post where the discussion of cloning oneself so that you could catch all the acts came to life. Well Saturday’s lineup had me tossing and turning trying to figure out how to pull off something of this magnitude for perfect Music Savage coverage. In hindsight I should have gotten a few hours more sleep but that’s neither here nor there. Let’s get to the folkin’ amazingness that was Day 2 shall we? What we saw on the Fort Stage. Nashville troubadour Rayland Baxter kicked off the day’s performances here to an enthusiastic crowd who…

Friday at Newport Folk 2016 in Photos

Friday at the Folk Fest… Really very hard to believe that we are already a week removed from the shear greatness that was NFF ’16 and all we have now are our memories to keep us going through the normal routine of our lives. Nothing wrong with that of course. If we all were to spend every weekend like that, surrounded by great music and amazing people in a spectacular location, would they be as special as the fourth week of July? Yes! Friday. Opening day. People arriving to the Fort in droves via ferry, bike, bus, teleportation. Maybe not…
