Saccharine brings 'Hollow Space' to O'Brien's Pub (3.1)

There are some songs that make you feel like they came from your own mind, that understand in a way that feels maybe a bit too close for comfort. And Somerville-based artist Saccharine's most recent full-length release Hollow Space is filled with them. In the vein of Ben Gibbard, Kevin King has infused emotional lyrics with an earnest and energetic delivery that leaves the listener feeling a whirlwind of excitement, awe, heartbreak. On this release, King's songwriting is unrivaled, his arrangements are cathartic; the result is a set of songs that linger much longer than expected. See Saccharine live at O'Brien's Pub in Allston on March 1, alongside Burlington rock darlings Clever Girls, who are currently on tour heading towards the Midwest. Until then, stream the full album below. - Lilly Milman

Girl Skin's music is a long, strange trip, plays Rockwood Music Hall 4.7

Sid Simons, the leader of Brooklyn freak folk collective Girl Skin, embodies the spirit of a wandering musician in a contemporary context. Originally of Portland, Oregon (with stints in Australia and Shanghai prior to settling in New York), Simons makes it immediately clear that he has channeled his long, strange trip into the group’s sonic output; the band's last single “Bite Real Hard” prominently features acoustic guitars against mandolin accents and an echoey, sliding voice. Before getting too dedicated to a folksy, Americana sound, however, “Bite” becomes electric, drone-laden shredding emerging from the woodwork as Simon repeats, “everything I know, I have from you.” It’s a distinctly modern twist on the folk of yesteryear, reflecting Girl Skin’s ability to blend both old and new styles into a cohesive, instantly classic output.

Girl Skin will head south to SXSW next month, but they’ll be back at Rockwood Music Hall on April 7th. In the meantime, go for a walkabout and watch the video for “Bite Real Hard.” -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Andy DeLuca


Get so "High" with Boston duo FBGM, now on West Coast tour

Matt Jatkola and D. Orxata make up the Boston-based eclectic indie-pop duo FBGM. Their newest single "High" (streaming below) is a bouncy ode to highs and lows. The buoyant melody is kept afloat by a breezy delivery of deadpan lyrics like "How do you get me so high in the morning? ... Why is it easy to cry in the morning?" The lyrics operate in paradoxes, and the production effortlessly adds a shimmery texture. Written, produced, recorded, and mixed by Jatkola himself, the track is steeped in a heavy dose of experience and sentimentality. It's undoubtedly the work of people who care about what they are creating, while also playing around with infectious pop sensibilities. FBGM is currently on a west coast tour and will return to New England on March 10 to play Hutghi’s at the Nook in Westfield, MA. - Lilly Milman



Endolphins is the experimental rock of Alex Strong and Daniel Payne. The duo released a new self-titled album earlier this month and an accompanied video for the album’s lead single “Grey Scale”. The creates a unique synth-pop sound by utilizing an array of samples to blend with their synth and guitar based sound.
