 After a whirlwind year of recording and touring, Boston pop-punkers Tighticus Finch have flown from the nest as Cardinals.  Equipped with a new acoustic EP, Aftertaste, duo Emily Ronna and CJ Rarela are putting the proverbial (and literal) band back together, harnessing the energy of Finch and the mature emotional content that comes with a year of new experiences.  The highlight track for us is "Of Montreal", a ballad that puts Ronna's vocals to the test (which she passes).  Check them out live at Bungalow Bar & Grill in Manchester, NH with Woven in Hiatus, Paper Monsters, Hours North, and The Grebes. -Brian Varneke

The environment in which an album is recorded can often have a strong effect on a band's music.  It can also, on occasion, alter the perception of the listener.  Such is the case for Boston indie-rockers Jack Romanov in their new EP, The Smoking Room Sessions: I, recorded, mixed, and mastered in an East Boston funeral home.  The captivating sound of the quartet is amplified, creating a mixed atmosphere of curiosity, melancholy, and introspection.  The first of four EPs to be released in the coming weeks, volume 1 is enough for us to pay close attention to future output from the band.  Check out the album link below and let us know what you think. -Brian Varneke

 A female-fronted band with a larger-than-life sound, Berklee alt-rockers, Self Portraits, employ an impressive, accessible sound that is sure to leave a mark on the Boston music scene.  Their music is full of varied influences, catchy pop sensibilities with an arena rock energy.  Full of soaring guitars and powerhouse vocals, Self Portraits is a force to be reckoned with.  Catch them at The Red Room at Cafe 939 on 2/17 with The Interlopers and Brandon Diaz 'N Soul. -Brian Varneke

 There's an inviting quality to New World Haunts, the debut effort from indie-rock group, White Cassette.  It's an original, atmospheric sound that never outstays its welcome.  Filled with subtle, mature grooves and intelligent, emotional lyrics, Haunts, is an impressively refined entry for the Boston quintet.  The album is available on most streaming platforms, but take a few minutes to brush up on your ping-pong skills, and check out the video for their single "Whywhom" below. -Brian Varneke

 In an effort to help combat the ongoing water crisis in Flint, MI, Boston-based alt/soul-rockers Aloud have teamed up with Kendra Jones of Brooklyn's Cold Blood Club to lend a helping hand through their new single "Agua Mala".  Frustrated with the three year, man-made disaster that has rocked a community and taken away a basic human commodity, this collaboration gives listeners a way to give much needed support to the people of Flint.  All proceeds from downloads of "Agua Mala" will go directly to the Flint Water Fund set up by The United Way of Genesee County. -Brian Varneke

 With their new single "House Boy", Boston alt-rockers Whatever Whatever have re-asserted themselves as buzzworthy newcomers to the New England scene.  If you missed their debut EP, Who's This, we encourage you to go back and check it out.  The two works combined create a relevant and individual voice, both lyrically and musically, that is rare for a band of their limited discography.  "House Boy" (produced by Converse Rubber Tracks producer, David Minehan) is a taste of things to come, and we can't wait to see where their road leads next. -Brian Varneke
