May 2013

We know it goes without being said, but April was quite the trying month here in Boston. One thing that’s true is that through any sort of tragedy, music will always be there and it has been amazing to see the Boston music community come together after April 15th. Our blogging counterparts over at Allston Pudding put together a mixtape of over 100 songs in a mere three days following the marathon, local musician/artist Dan Blakeslee created Hearts for Boston which has become a trademark image of the relief efforts, and not to mention various other musical projects that have popped up across the city in an effort to help out the victims and their families.

Music can also be a great distraction from tragedy and heartbreak and we hope that our playlist for the month of May will help to put your mind at ease. This month we feature new tuneage from local Boston artists such as Pretty & Nice and Quilt along with some M&T faves like The Shouting Matches, Futurebirds, Phosphorescent, and Kishi Bashi. Enjoy the fresh tracks, subscribe for 20 new jams every month, and stay Boston Strong!
