The Max Tribe – New Album Release

Boston-based indie band The Max Tribe have released their debut album “Retrofit” on August 18. Listen to their single “Yellow Pages” here:

The album “Retrofit” takes its name from taking something old and revitalizing it with the addition of contemporary parts. The band does this with their ability to take classic rock influences to create new psych-Blues and Soul indie rock similar in sound to The Black Keys or Morning Jacket. The album was recorded over the course of 15 months at 1867 Studios in Boston, a massive building that once served as a Masonic Temple but now houses the collection of vintage recording equipment.

“These songs transpired through strife, love, heartbreak, and mystery, conditions we all relate to,” The Max Tribe said. “The sound of the record cultivated from old techniques with a retrofit approach. We sought out to take vintage sounds and modernize them. The theme or concept of the record is revealed most in the production. We recorded most of the album in an old Masonic Temple built in 1867. This is where the album ultimately got its color and conviction.”

The band was born in 2013 when vocalist and Nashville-native Austin Max united with drummer Conner Kessler at music school in Boston. For more than a year they developed a psych sound playing around New England. Together they linked up with keyboard player Noah Lubert and bass player Rafael Minerbo in 2016, completing the group’s signature psych sound.

Native Sons – New EP Release

Native Sons will be releasing their upcoming EP “Super American” this Friday, Aug. 4. Check out the single “Lay Your Lover Down” below. The song’s got an addicting beat with dark wave influences and spacey keyboard experimentation.

Thomas Fine and Justin Altamura of Native Sons released the album’s synth-heavy debut single “Lay Your Lover Down” and found the sound they were looking for with the help of producer Chris Garcia, who has worked with Lana Del Rey and Adele. The 7-song EP is a mix of pop, dance, electronic and rock, and covers the themes of past relationships and the past musical history together.

Thomas and Justin have played with headliners Black Keys and Kings of Leon in their rock and Blues band The Iron Heart at the 2013 Bottle Rock Music & Arts Festival. Since then, they wanted to take their sound in a new direction and then in 2016, the two brothers in music decided to change the direction of their music trajectory. The duo called on friends and industry contacts to put together a roster of producers.

The Charleston-native band plays an amalgamation of different genres, from rock to Blues to Hip-Hop, so it’s no surprise the new single explores the vastness of rock and all that is has to offer with a soaring solo, heavy tone guitars and a dark breakdown with lyrics covering loss and confusion. For their newest effort, the band recorded with Grammy-winning producer Julian Dwyer at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC.

The Company Stores are currently out on tour through the Southeast, hitting Georgia, Maryland, West Virginia and Tennessee. The tour will conclude with a record release show for the “Little Lights” LP, taking pace on April 7.
