Performing with a rotating lineup of musicians, Peaer is an object set in motion, staying in motion. Songwriter Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns) has an understanding of dynamics, amplitude, and melody as they interact as physical bodies, pushing, pulling, peaking and falling. Consequently, Peaer produces songs about communication as a force on a linguistic and kinetic level communication between individuals, between yourself and other self, between your heart and your brain.
Peaer Self-Titled is Peaer’s second record, following the release of the home recorded debut the eyes sink into the skull in September of 2014. the eyes sink into the skull offered songs ranging from contemplative, melancholic slowcore to sparkling and intricate math rock. Peaer , however, recognizes and references these motifs, but pushes them further. Performed and recorded with the help of Max Kupperberg (Bruise, ex-Palehound) on drums and Michael Steck on bass guitar, Peaer offers higher energy, shorter form, stronger hooks, with emphasis on economy, cohesion and balance.
Amelia Devoid is a fearlessly inventive composer combining synthetic and organic sounds to create work that is unexpected, beautiful, and unsettling.
Milk is a band out of Boston, MA. Matt Brady (vocals, guitar) and Sam Taber (keys, vocals) started playing together in 2012, cutting their teeth in the local scene and rehearsing in empty Boston University buildings late into the night. After a few incarnations and three releases (Hubba Hubba EP, Et In Arcadia, Contact EP), the band added H.L. Weatherby (drums).
Their music is a unique brand of rock that Matt calls "New England Gothic". Steeped in the current landscape of Boston, their newest LP, Horsetown Threshold, out on Midnight Werewolf Records, marks a broad step forward in their sound. The album was recorded both at home and at The Record Company, and combines thick distorted Americana with mindful songwriting - songs that discuss the full spectrum of human emotions and the anxiety that often happens while trying to make sense of them. The album has been rated in the top 15 local albums of the year according to Dig Boston.
The live show is something to be seen. Never playing the same show twice, they run the gambit of sound, bridging the gap between heavy and delicate. Milk will be touring the album for the majority of the upcoming summer, and Matt will play a host of solo dates as well - rolling it out to as many ears as possible.
