On a mission to combine their love of '90s alt-rock and lascivious urges, PowerSlut formed in late 2012. They have since released two albums ("With Great Power Comes Great Slut" in 2014 and "The Second Coming" in 2016), performed all over New England, and shot a music video. Their influences range from the Pixies to PJ Harvey to Queens of the Stone Age and Ween, and they've been described as Steel Panther's bratty, witty little sister. Their newest EP, "Go Fuck Myself," was recorded at Mad Oak Studios and Converse Rubber Tracks last spring and released on December 1, 2017.
Abbie Barrett has been featured on CMT’s Cool Album Cuts, Magnet Magazine, Vanyaland, PopMatters, and Performing Songwriter. In 2015, she was nominated for Best Female Vocalist and won a Boston Music Award for Best Songwriter. Her music falls somewhere between pop, rock, and a little strangeness, yielding songs that are exciting, unique, and unpredictable—but always something you can sing along to. In April, she and her band will launch the premiere of the AB Sides, a series of two tracks released every few months.
“Portland Maine's Crystal Canyon delivers big on their self titled debut album. Their fuzzed out guitar tones and noise driven melodies blend nicely with Lynda Mandolyn's captivating vocals. "Silver Day" has a gliding feel to it that's drenched in catchy hooks and rich melodies and really kicks the album off well. "Adeline" is slower and darker and creates a nice bit of tension between the instruments while "Sleeper" is a mind-bending number with all the elements of a true modern day shoegaze classic. Other stand out tracks include the at times orchestral sounding "Only In A Daydream", fuzz fueled "She Shines" which is a real ripper and the hook filled gem fittingly titled "Dim". Overall this is a pretty amazing debut sure to delight fans of shoegaze and dream pop flair and beyond.”
