02.24: SXSW-bound Kills Birds plays Gold Diggers

Kills Birds have a slate of shows coming up in the next few months, which means that more cities across these United States will have a chance to catch their wild live antics. They kick things off with a hometown gig at Gold Diggers on February 24th, and from there, they'll take their act on a wild ride up and down the West Coast. Once they've done that, they'll head down to Austin for SXSW, where they'll entertain the masses who have heard of them through big names such as Reggie Watts and Kim Gordon. Should you have that Monday night available -- or, even if you don't -- you should go throw yourself around the room to the fierce tracks that Kills Birds have to offer. The band released their debut album last year; for an idea of what you'll experience from their stage show, take a listen to "Volcano" below. - Will Sisskind

Rahkii “No Capes”

This is just third single from the talented emcee and singer in as many years, but a great indicator of the powerful direction this album is heading in.

Surnames debut with gripping record "These Days"

The music of Boston’s latest standout band Surnames is sweet caramel, hot chocolate, gooey marshmallow—whatever decadence you can think of. Surnames’ debut record These Days grips you immediately with its smooth indie rock, tinged with a surfy vibe and sprinkled with natural sounds that enrich each atmospheric track. From the groovy dance number “Can’t Take It With You” to the funky-intricate guitar picking in “California,” the record is sensual, fun, and very much liberating. Even slower tracks like “To Wolves” drip with emotion as they swell into euphoric breakdowns highlighted by the soulful vocals of Liam Anastasia-Murphy, who has put together a group of talented individuals for a record worth betting on in 2020. Stream the romp-igniting track “Can’t Take It With You” below and let loose. - Rene Cobar
