Boston Metro: Russian Blood Album Release Show Review

Monday, May 28th, 2012

On the spectrum of rock music, guitar-laden hard rock is underrepresented in the Boston — and, honestly, national — rock scene. Boston-based RIBS took action to change that on Friday night at their album release party at T.T. the Bear’s.

The energetic power pop pumped up the fairly full rock venue in Cambridge, a good showing for the holiday weekend. With cuts from their latest take, “Russian Blood” on full display, the punchy guitars of tracks like “Destructo” and the single “Kiss” called to mind alt. rock acts from the ’90s.

Other songs were simply straight-forward rockers with simple chord progressions… regardless, with a minimal, but effective, light display, a solid stage presence and an emphasis on the reverb, RIBS lock in their spot as one Boston’s top local rock acts.

Boston, we’ve missed you…

So when Moving Mountains asked us to join them on Friday, March 23rd at TT The Bear’s, we couldn’t say no.

Here’s the score:

Sneak Peek: New RIBS Track On WFNX’s Breakfast Show With Fletcher And Henry Santoro

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Boston Phoenix music editor Michael Marotta appears as a guest on this morning’s Breakfast Show on Boston’s rock station, WFNX 101.7, to talk about his “Class of 2011: Boston’s 11 Best New Bands” story.

Skip to 3:45 to hear “Please Don’t Go” from the upcoming Locrian Singles (coming January 25th).

Were you awake this morning at the ungodly hour of 9am?

I was, and honestly, I don’t know how you people do it. But with a little help from the amphetamine juice called 5 Hour Energy Boost, a few fruitty bottles of Powerade Zero and my Little Jetta That Could ambitiously motoring up Route 1A all the way to Lynn, I dropped by the WFNX radio studio this morning to be a guest on the Breakfast Show with Fletcher and Henry Santoro.

The subject was this week’s “Class of 2011: Boston’s 11 Best New Bands” feature in the Boston Phoenix, with Stereo Telescope’s “Geography” and RIBS‘ “Please Don’t Go” getting some early drive-time airplay. The former was our MP3 of the Week back in August, and the latter will take that high honor later this month before their Locrian Singles release party at TT The Bear’s Place on January 28 (don’t tip off competing news outlets, k?).

So yeah, in case you slept in (mad jellz) or had a board meeting or whatever it is that normal people do at 9am, check out an mp3 of the appearance below.

Boston Phoenix: Winter Boston Music Preview 2011

RIBS + THE CINNAMON FUZZ | T.T. The Bear’s | January 28 | Those who appreciated the harder edge RIBS brought to Boston’s indie tableau with British Brains are in for more treats: the double A-side Locrian Singles continues the young quartet’s thunderous experimentation with guitar sonics, crafting a pulsating sound that borrows as much from Muse as it does Deftones. The Cinnamon Fuzz bring balance to the bill, countering RIBS’ stomp with their glossy, rock-pop disco dust. Boston’s promising duo is joined by a New York pair: Bridges & Powerlines and Fan-Tan.
