To The Wedding – To The Wedding EP

January 28, 2011

Someone should write a book about how bands like 28 Degrees Taurus, Magic Shoppe, Ghost Box Orchestra and others have energized the local scene, layering elements of psych, shoegaze, and ambient over Boston’s traditional garage-rock template. Creating something new while still retaining what I consider to be the essential characteristics of (i) sounding great on headphones when listening in the library and (ii) sounding even better when played loudly, on a stereo at a party or live in a bar. Making music, that is, for people who like to think but love to rock.

To The Wedding‘s new 4-song EP is the latest to fit in exactly along these lines. And, thus, my first favorite local release of the new year. “Let Love In” streams below; the entire EP on bandcamp.
