BEST ROCK ACT: Sparks the Rescue


For a band who made their bones in the all-ages scene, these guys are grizzled old veterans at this point. Toby McAllister and Alex Roy, especially, have continued to feed their fans by releasing, releasing, releasing. The most recent flood of tunes comes in the form of The Secrets We’ve Kept, a collection of 23 B-sides and demos, some of which, in their raw forms, are a window to their 2006 “Saco Boys Have No Class” roots, while others tell the tale of the radio rock band they became.

From screamo to AutoTune, screaming guitars to acoustic duo tours, Sparks continue to experiment, explore, and do whatever it takes to put themselves in front of music fans. They’re doing more than a few things right along the way. |

Runners-up: Wrecking, Theodore Treehouse, Whitcomb
