Rogozo's dual album is a sonic journey worth taking, performance set for 08.02

Boston's Rogozo has a brand new double record out titled Nine Lives/Eight Lives and boy does it offer an escape from life's asphyxiating routine. The ambiance in the opening track "Nine Lives" alone is enough to relax the brain's neurons and secrete euphoria. The listener can be lost in the suppleness of the string instruments and keys that open the song and lead toward an intriguing marching drum build-up. The song then cascades the mind into a lake of majestic vocal chants, blinding drum fills, and flourishing guitars. The record continues its art-rock flexing to flash stylish guitar solos and Queen-like enthusiasm in its performance. "Animals" in particular is a cross between the most prominent rock forms of the '70s: punk, glam, and psych merge for a riveting experience. "The Psychic" fast-forwards to the '80s for an electro-tune that displays a furious pace, a smooth bassline, and charming vocal harmonies. "Red City" has a lush piano riff that contrasts with the song's aggressive tone. Rogozo has crafted a sonic journey that is deserving of praise, in its execution as much as in its creativity. The Thunder Road Music Club will be hosting Rogozo on Aug 2nd for a performance sure to be a good time. With so many tracks to choose from, we have to go with the pop-punk tinged "Dream" streaming for you below. - Rene Cobar

Them Fantasies serve a rich blend of styles in debut record "Caffeine Queen"

Spiffed up and ready to take on the world are Boston's Them Fantasies, a well-polished group with a brand spanking new debut record. The band's Caffeine Queen is an alt-rock treat with an unquestionable aroma of jazz and hints of pop. "Hook-Up Culture" amps up the groove factor with a slithery-entrancing bassline while "Melatonin" lets the guitar solos and anthemic choruses fly for a double shot of alt-rock goodness. In "Acid Anna," the band shines as the jazz influences take over and provide comforting escapism from reality. From the speedy "Plastic Heart" to the reggae-soaked "Them Fantasies," it all comes together sumptuously. Having returned from an East Coast tour, Them Fantasies are sure to let the album's steam propel them to the next set of gigs. Enjoy our favorite track from the new record "Acid Anna" below. - Rene Cobar
