Stream Astro Tan's 'Canary,' Out Today

Dual guitars, primo percussion and an interesting blend of jazz, psych, r&b and indie rock have propelled local trio Astro Tan into the hearts of music lovers around town for the last couple years now. A few EPs here, a couple free released singles there, Astro Tan haven't given us a full length's worth of the trippy soul we've all been waiting for, until now.

Canary, out today, pulls a few previously released tracks and throws them in with some newer ones like "The Jetsons," a wispily melodic tune relating modern life and love to the animated quips of the old school futuristic cartoon of the same name. It shows Astro Tan taking what they do best to the next level.

Stream Canary below and be sure to check out Astro Tan's album release show on the 28th at the Doug Fir with Tango Alpha Tango and Taylor Kingman before they head on tour in mid-March.

Buzz Alert: Jelani Sei Unleashes Ethereal Funk in New EP, Kaaria

Transcendental indie-funk band Jelani Sei has released a genre-bending second EP in Kaaria, a study in ethereal soundscapes mixed with soulful vocals and nasty funk grooves.  The vocal work is exemplary, with complimenting performances from Kayana Guity and Evan Lawrence that work seemlessly together to create a unified voice.  Catchy hooks, inventive songwriting, and tight instrumentals make Kaaria a release that is not to be missed. -Brian Varneke





Baeja Vu Plays Thunder Road Music Club 2/2

The Cambridge 7-piece, Baeja Vu, is a one-of-a-kind mixture of throwback R&B, hip-hop, and funk.  Sporting dual vocals, the counterpoint of soulful melody vs acrobatic hip-hop flow is backed up by a Motown-style band that makes sampling seem outdated.  Check them out at Thunder Road Music Club with West End Blend and Slam Kitchen and find out if you're their #1 bae. -Brian Varneke
