Jason Ebbs brings back the best of alt-rock on 'Familiar Villains' EP

The most recent EP Familiar Villains by Boston-based alt-rocker Jason Ebbs is a nostalgic reminder of the aggressively emotion-driven lyricism, youthfully optimistic delivery, and polished guitars that made alt-rock great in the mid-oughts. The EP is filled with plenty of clever arrangements and catchy lines—like the chorus of “Brick Wall” (streaming below) which quips “She’s a brick wall / a flash of passion / but there’s nothing on the other side,” which shine a light on a strong new voice in the Boston indie rock scene. - Lilly Milman
