The Cultured to Open for Shwayze at THE MET in Pawtucket This August

Hailing from Brockton, MA, The Cultured met in high school and began creating some of the best sometimes indie, sometimes reggae inspired rock in New England, and after three years touring the Boston circuit have landed an opening gig for Shwayze in Rhode Island next month. This comes after the release of one full-length album on S.H.O.P. Records in 2012 and in the midst of their new single "Revelation"'s buzz, leaving the four-piece band poised for huge success before a sophomore release. There's no doubt thatthe Shwayze show is only the beginning for The Cultured, so scramble to check them out while they're still playing smaller venues before they become the new big thing. --Jamie Loftus


Providence-Boston Band Kid Mountain Releases "Visitor's Center" EP

As I was scouring the internet for the next band/artist/musical act to catch my ear, I stumbled on something awesome. Yes, awesome. Kid Mountain’s Visitor’s Center EP is a great set of tracks. It opens up with a great boom of energy and sustains that excitement and passion throughout each of the seven songs. A blend of Fleet Foxes reverb and vocals, coupled with Dodos-esque rhythms makes this EP a must on your iTunes playlist (you can download it from their bandcamp site for only $5!). The entire EP actually reminds me of hanging out on a deck at a party in the summertime, and who doesn’t like partying outside? Even if you hate parties, you’ll certainly dig the tunes these guys have created. The second track on Visitor’s Center, “Upskirt”, really stood out to me; with it’s powerful guitars and gang vocal choruses, I would imagine these guys are great live. The band recently wrapped up an East Coast tour, but stay on the lookout for them at a club/bar/basement near you.
