Old-Timers Put on their Dancing Shoes for Amy & The Engine’s “Last Forever” Video

You’d be hard-pressed to find many indie pop bands out there that could rock a senior citizen prom quite like Amy & The Engine.

The Shills Get Real Freaky Naughty with a Cover of Ginuwine’s “Pony”

This past Wednesday, Boston’s own four-piece pop rock outfit, The Shills, brought the lights down for a hot and heavy, in-studio rendition of Ginuwine’s 1996 R&B classic, “Pony.” And though Bryan Murphy’s vocals float effortlessly through spaced-out rhythms and arpreggioed keys, Dave Sicilian proved the real MVP, just oozing sex appeal one synthesized bass thump after another.

These dudes are currently gearing up to release their new album, Keep Your Hands Busy: Vol. 2. You can preorder the CD, snag a custom shot glass, or even bowl a couple strings with the band over at PledgeMusic.


Nemes Drop Music Video for “Everest Isle” on Earmilk

Folk rockers, Nemes, recently got together with Earmilk to premiere a new video for their tune, “Everest Isle,” which features a cartoon cowboy hopping trains and beating bad guys to a pulp for his lady-friend. The group’s fiddle-backed groove, coupled with Vocalist Dave Anthony’s driving melodies and general Imagine Dragons-ness, provides a fitting atmosphere for the story.

Nemes put out their debut full-length, I Carry Your Heart, last October. Click here to give it a listen.
