Song of the Week | illuminati hotties – I Wanna Keep Yr Dog

This week’s WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight shines down on Southern California and focuses on the ridiculously catchy new song “I Wanna Keep Yr Dog” from illuminati hotties, the Los Angeles band fronted by Sarah Tudzin. It’s the first new music released since their highly acclaimed 2018 debut album Kiss Yr Frenemies. The new single is a high-octane, indie-pop jam that blasts off the instant you press play, taking you on a three minute tear through fuzzed-out guitar riffs and sixties style hooks. Tie it all together with swinging Doo-wop drums and you have yourself a song that will…

Photos + Review | Liz Cooper and The Stampede + Harpooner @ Great Scott

Last Monday, February 25th us winter-weary Boston folks got a much needed southern heatwave in the form of a rocking whirlwind of a trio known as Liz Cooper & The Stampede. The jet stream pulled the psych-folk-soul currents directly from Nashville, Tennessee right through the doors of Great Scott, and created a raucous tornado of guitar-fueled energy that swept up folks eager for a good night of tunes. Cooper expertly controlled the stage with her guitar prowess, while Grant Prettyman, (bass), and Ryan Usher(drums) kept the rock n’ roll storm swirling around the jam-packed venue.

Song of the Week | HEZEN – Bring Your Alibi

The new WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight shines down on the UK and highlights the pulsing new single, “Bring Your Alibi,” from London-based musician and producer HEZEN. The new song is the first in a series of singles to be released throughout 2019, and if they are as fantastic as this then I will be quite pleased. HEZEN released her intense debut EP, Stigma, in 2017 and has quickly gained fans and recognition with her ability to produce a sound that mixes early electronic and industrial influencers perfectly together with modern pop hooks and lightening strike tempo…
