Bands from the blogosphere

BMP 2012
By PHOENIX STAFF  |  June 14, 2012



BOSTON HASSLE | | From their establishment of essential Boston organizations like Weirdo Records and 100% Breakfast, to their work in seminal bands like Fat Day, the members of Exusamwa not only form one of the most cutting-edge bands on the planet, they're also beloved local heroes to people who love cool shit. Few groups truly embody the essence of such heady titles as "punk/hardcore," "psych/experimental," "best local act," "best local live act," and "best female vocalist" — let alone all five — but Exusamwa do it with gusto. They're one of those bands that could steamroll the competition in almost any category if only more people knew what was really up with Boston's explosive underground music scene. Here's hoping they get there someday.
