Haven’t heard of some of our picks? Listen to a mix-tape of the artists featured in this month’s Selected Sounds at the bottom of the page.

Dry The River / Nathaniel Rateliff at Brighton Music Hall – Selected by Jonah

After seeing Dry The River a few years back, they blew me away with their mixture of quiet British folk music and hard-hitting rock. All behind Peter Liddle’s fantastic falsetto, this crew tears it up on stage!

RL Grime at Paradise Rock Club – Selected by TK

One of the leading producers of the trap movement, RL Grime is an absolute master when it comes to hip-hop and bass-heavy music. He’s collaborated with Bauuer and remixed big names like Shlohmo, Chief Keef, and Benny Benassi and performed at some of the biggest music festivals like Ultra and Coachella.

CunninLynguists at Middle East Downstairs – Selected by Jon

CunninLynguists combine clever lyrics, old-school hip-hop production, and energetic live performances. With their tour buds J-Live, Tonedeff, and Pack FM, this show should be fiery. Bring a dictionary.

Agnes Obel at The Sinclair – Selected by Knar

Clarity. The combination of Agnes Obel’s voice, the sharp plinking of piano and the deep cello’s smooth strokes produce the kind of clear, beautiful sound you’d expect from sorrow-filled angels. Her last show with local trio Gem Club was cancelled, so don’t miss her this time around.

PUP at Brighton Music Hall – Selected by Matt

Just yesterday these Canadian punks were named one of the 20 Hottest Bands In The World Right Now by Kerrang!. With only one release and less than a year of touring under their belts, PUP has exploded onto the scene with a satisfying blend of poppy post-punk and hook-heavy modern indie. This will be their first performance ever in Boston, but it may be their last in such an intimate venue, don’t miss out!

Caribou at Paradise Rock Club – Selected by Joey and Jenna

Joey: This psychedelic one-man electronic project of Dan Snaith managed to hold its own while opening for Radiohead, nearly surpassing the rock greats in their own game. A Caribou show is an aesthetic smorgasbord of vibrant lights, hybrid musical genres, and experimental rhythms that will have you dancing like Thom Yorke by the encore.

Jenna: A veteran on the electronic music scene, Dan Snaith has been churning out hypnotic melodies for over a decade now. (He’s got so many monikers that sometimes it’s hard to keep track.) This time, he’s returning to the stage as Caribou—perhaps his most well-known and critically acclaimed project—in support of newly released Our Love. Don’t let his soft-spoken vocals trick you into thinking it’ll be a snoozer, though. The show is bound to be an immersive experience, fit for uncontrollable dancing and quiet meditation just the same.
