These are some local boys I heard on the River (WXRV, Boston, 92.5), a pretty excellent independent radio station here.If I remember correctly, the band members all hail from Massachusetts.I was pretty taken with the lead singer’s voice, and I’m absolutely in love with their song, “Shady Esperanto and the Young Hearts”
I’ve checked them out more since then, and while I find some of the songs are too similar to one another, I appreciate the simple but tight playing. The songs are sweet, slice of life stories – so far, there appears to be no shortage of love around here, with multiple songs by the band featuring a girl’s name in the title. They currently are on tour with their “Road to 1000” and I’m thinkin I should try and catch their Somerville show… but at the same time, I may be in Maine at that point and a Thursday night just doesn’t work. Why no Portland, huh?
