Sneeze's turbulent genre-fusing record "Fin" delights

We cannot think of a better way to ignite your weekend than by presenting you to a group that blends the best of the '90s and '00s at the highest speed possible. Sneeze is pop-punk meets grunge vehemently and in ever-pleasing fashion: the group's brand new record Fin is filled with fuzzed-out riffs and heavy-handed drum fills that progress quickly toward mosh-inducing power-pop breakdowns. Take tracks like "Not in Service" as prime examples of the group’s ability to switch from rapid punk rhythms into intricate-swelling atmospheric segments that set up more instrumental madness. Just as you think you are catching your breath, the band has another progression too good not to bang your head to a la 2003. Tracks like "A Winter in Barcelona" flirt with nu-metal and showcase the group's instrumental proficiency and lust for noise. The Boston-based band is revving its engine for November dates throughout the West Coast, which are sure to be a good time. We are streaming the delightfully sinister track "Dark Earth" from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

Aaron Noj defies his surroundings in latest single "M​.​O​.​T​.​M."

We are always digging deep into New England's talent garden to find rising artists from all corners of the region: we have unearthed a March gem we want to share with you. Derry, New Hampshire's Aaron Noj released his single "M​.​O​.​T​.​M." with little fanfare and in relative obscurity but its bite should not be ignored as it leaves a lasting mark. Aaron rebels against the tranquility of Derry's quaint Main Street and the town's overall serenity with sharp grunge guitar chords that reverberate violently. Aaron's distant voice is melancholic, angst-fueled, entrancing—grunge music's preference. The culminating instrumental breakdown is destructive and has a lo-fi sound to it that delivers a cathartic finish. Whatever emotion you are feeling, Aaron's track will be sure to discover it and animate it. We are looking forward to some show listings from this alternative artist; stream “M​.​O​.​T​.​M.” below. - Rene Cobar
