The Rupert Selection is a progressive alt-rock power trio from Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA that has curated not only a spellbinding musical vibe, but a darkly intriguing visual style, bridging the multimedia gap.  They're strong sense of narrative and technical skill is plainly apparent in their latest video for "Tree Hands", the opening track on Baseball Practice.  Opening with a haunting soundscape, the EP continues with tight, mixed-meter grooves on "Moon Cats in Taxi Cabs", and consistently progresses through a tale of provocative songwriting and musical prowess.  Check out The Rupert Selection on Bandcamp here, and experience "Tree Hands" below, a music video that will likely become an early favorite for our "Best of 2017" list. -Brian Varneke

 Boston guitarist R.D. King is preparing to release an album of masterfully crafted instrumentals in vs. Self, his debut effort.  Comprised of nine tracks of transformative journeys of sound, King fully utilizes and expands the capabilities of the instrument, creating an ensemble sound with his fingers.  It's easy to get lost in the genre-defying work of King, with each track taking you to a different, unexpected place, from classical to pop to progressive metal and beyond.  Experience it for yourself at the Rockville Theatre in Somerville, MA on 4/27, featuring Jenee Halstead.  Click the link below for the first single, "An End to Wandering".  -Brian Varneke

 Northampton, MA based Hammydown is bringing her brand of infectious garage-pop to Allston next week in preparation of her upcoming EP, Pizzaface.  Singer/songwriter Abbie Morin combines bright, catchy melodies with understated, fuzzy guitar work to create a memorable and unique style that will appeal to a diverse pool of fans.  The EP is set to release this July, but we've heard it and can assure you it is worth the wait.  Check out the video for the first single, "People You May Know", below and catch Hammydown at O'Brien's on Tuesday, 4/25, featuring Workman Song, Honeymooner, and Fossy Jaw.  -Brian Varneke

 We've all been there: that ill-advised drunk dial that you would never have had the nerve or reckless abandon to make in the light of day.  That's the subject of "Hung Up", the latest single from Boston electro-pop/R&B group luhx.  Weaving within genre lines, luhx has a sound that would be at home on a top 40 radio station, while maintaining a current of melancholic, soulful vibes throughout.  Invoking the spirit of artists like Jack Garratt and Marian Hill, this is the future of soul.  Hit the link below and let us know what you think. -Brian Varneke

 Boston-based alt-rockers, Pace Car Joe, are in preparations to release a brand new EP, Moonlight Convicts, unto the world.  Just a few months after January's Ghost of the Boulevard (which earned them an artist-of-the-month nod), the band is sure to repeat, with another collection of catchy crowd-pleasers that will keep them on our radar.  Check them out with Jake Hill and Deep Creek at Thunder Road Music Club on 4/21 and hit the link below for their new single, "Camouflaged By Happiness".  -Brian Varneke

The Northeastern Railroads, brain-child of Boston's Tony Moureilles, is a full-bodied wall of sound, nuanced and expressive.  A pleasant mix of indie-rock and shoegaze flavors, Tony's debut record, Hope, is a dynamic study of unconventional songwriting, keeping an experimental flair (at times, somewhat Bowie-esque) without sacrificing the integrity of the song.    Check him out at his album release party, 4/22 at Out of the Blue Gallery.  -Brian Varneke
