I haven’t blogged in over 5 months, easily the longest since starting this place back in 2009. In that time I bought a house and finished a crap load of tunes. But as summer starts to wind down, my newsfeeds have been filled with fire music coming out of our backyard…too much of it to ignore really. So in the words of Elwood…”I’m getting the blog back together again”
Let’s start with Camino 84. Easily one Boston’s most promising up-and-comers, Camino scored himself a viral hit last week with “Oh My” featuring the vocal prowess of Sidney Gish and a killer guitar solo by Matt Lewin. One step beyond the typical 4/4 stomper, Oh My boasts a contemporary arrangement that suits a barbecue equally as well as a bar. Probably one of the most talked-about singles from anyone in Boston this year, Camino also put out a killer track on the Together compilation I curated earlier this year, as well as a killer mix full of disco and golden-era obscurities he dug up at WRBB last month.
