New Music: Salem Wolves "Peach"

Salem Wolves (MegaHex Records) has a new track for your ear holes. “Peach”, recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks studio, produced, engineered and mixed by Dave Minehan mastered by Brad Krieger and featured on Chronicle (cuz we fancy now), continues the band’s mission to pump out high quality singles. “I've always been a "songs over albums" kinda guy, hooks over a jam,” Gray Salem told Bishop & Rook during a sit down over the summer.

You can stream the garage rock track on Soundcloud now and see the band live on February 26th with The Evil Streaks, The Devil's Twins and Damnation at Ralph’s Diner in Worcester (sponsored by Polar Seltzer // event details) and be on the lookout as the band visits WMBR’s Pipeline for a live in-studio session on March 15th.

Video Premiere: Bundles - “Dead Reckoning”

We’re excited to premier Bundles’ music video for “Dead Reckoning” off their soon-to-be-released record. The 2:26 video (created by John Schoeck and Mike Silva) highlights the band’s Converse Rubber Tracks experience back in August.

“We got to the studio around 11am and I think had finished basic tracking by 1pm and were out of there with a finished, mixed track by 5pm. The staff was super friendly and very easy to work with,” Bundles bassist Brain Jones recalls. The song was later re-mixed and mastered with the band’s producer, Dave Age (Favorite Atomic Hero) at his studio Union Digital.

“Dead Reckoning” is one of two tracks premiered by the band earlier this fall. Although talks have been initiated on how the record will be released, Bundles’ sophomore EP has yet to have an official release date. But, per Jones, the band would “love to chat” with anyone interested in working with the band.

See Bundles at ONCE in Somerville on November 20th and at the Quincy Sons of Italy for a benefit show on November 25th. Details below. Listen to a more in-depth recap of what went down in the Rubber Tracks studios via the band’s guest DJ episode on Mutiny on the Microphone podcast. Follow Bundles on Facebook and Twitter for additional show and release information.

Upcoming Shows:

November 20th at ONCE :: with Alarms, Garbage Cans of Fire

November 25th at Quincy Sons of Italy :: with Jesse Ahern, The Coalition, Alarms, Cactus Attack and Mike McColgan and Friends

World Premier: Bundles' Streams 2 New Tracks – Exclusively on Mutiny on the Microphone

Listen here first - Bundles premiers two new tracks off upcoming EP.

In anticipation of their sophomore EP, Boston’s indie rock trio Bundles is releasing two new songs; “Dead Reckoning” from their 2015 Converse Rubber Tracks session and “Prisoners” off of the forthcoming EP. The songs will debut this Thursday, October 1st exclusively on Mutiny On The Microphone Podcast. Listen to the band's episode below (for those of you who can't wait, try marks 5:58 and 29:25).

Bundles introduced themselves in the spring of 2013 with their debut self-titled EP; a 4-track collection of tight, lo-fi songs, produced within 10 hours of studio time - available to stream and purchase on Bandcamp. After a string of successful shows opening for bands such as A. Sinclair, Cayetana and Beach Slang, the band returned to the studio (for more than 10 hours this time) to produce their 7-track sophomore EP, recorded, mixed and mastered at Phoenix Down (Somerville) with John Scott and David Age (of Favorite Atomic Hero), set to be released as soon as someone will pay for it. You’ll find that these new songs, while still very much a Bundles record, move the band into a tighter and more polished sound.

Follow Bundles on Facebook and Twitter for additional show and release information.
