As should DUSTIN SAUCIER's first in a "set of EPs" to follow up this year's debut solo effort I Wrote a Letter, called Paper and recorded again with Jon York, plus Dominic Grosso on bass, Nick Simpson on keys, and Geoff Williams on drums. And the jocular-pop SEA CAPTAINS' The Clear Album, their sophomore release, recorded at drummer Tom Ash's studio and to be mastered by Pat Keane. Even MAX GARCIA CONOVER's first full-length effort, after a couple of strong EPs. The singer-songwriter has been working with Pete Morse at Busted Barn and he'll be releasing Burrow through Clip Records likely right as the month turns to March.

Just before spring rolls around, ENDLESS INTERSTATE, which recorded at Tony Gatti's studio like the John Clavette Band, debuts the full-length Roadsigns, available March 12, with a gig at the Big Easy on March 23. Look for a free single on New Year's Day, "Miles," which features Ryan Zoidis (Rustic Overtones, Lettuce) on sax.

There will also likely be a new SUNSET HEARTS EP to satisfy your need for keyboard-driven dance-pop, and a heavy offering from HESSIAN, who'll release Bachelor of Black Arts as we move into April.

Don't be surprised, either, if something comes out of new studio sessions from EMILIA DAHLIN and Holy Boys Danger Club frontman MIEK RODRIGUE before Memorial Day hits. The former is heading into record with longtime bandmate Seth Kearns at his Tidal Sound Studios, and will bring bassist Adam Frederick and guitarist Max Cantlin with her; the latter is close to seven songs in the can for his first solo release.

And you know how bands like to hunker down and record in the winter. No doubt this coming summer will make this winter's flood look like a trickle.

  •   SEVEN-MAN ARMY  |  July 24, 2014
    Lately, it’s been open season on “Wagon Wheel,” which has become the acoustic musician’s “Freebird,” one of the very few songs that people actually know well enough to find it funny to request.
  •   AMOS LIBBY'S FIVE WEEKS IN THE HEART OF THE CONFLICT  |  July 23, 2014
    "(Israeli) immigration asked me at the airport why I didn’t leave when I could have and I said it was because I felt safe. They told me I was nuts.”
  •   WHAT YOU SAY, RYAN?  |  July 16, 2014
    Ryan’s calling card is his sincerity. While the production and presentation are of a genre, you won’t find him talking about puffing the chron or dissing women or dropping a million f-bombs or using a bunch of contemporary rap jargon. He’s got a plan and he executes it, with more variety and modes of attack than he’s had on display to this point.
  •   BETTY CODY, 1921-2014  |  July 11, 2014
    The Maine music community lost a hidden giant last week with the death of Betty Cody, at 92.
  •   ADVENTURES IN LO-FI  |  July 11, 2014
    One obvious reason for heavy music is catharsis, a healthy release for all the built-up bullshit modern life entails. Like kickboxing class for suburban women, but with lots of black clothing and long hair.
