Rye Pines have been a staple in the Allston scene for sometime now, if you haven’t caught them rip at Great Scott or O’brien’s, chances are you’ve seen them hanging around Deep Ellum or Lonestar. They first grabbed our attention with their excellent release, A Portrait of Dissonance as a Young Man in 2014, then followed that up with their Dead Ocean EP that hit #16 on our Top EP’s of 2015 lists. So, do your homework and listen to those releases ASAP if you haven’t yet.
They are now gearing up to release a new EP titled “Keeper”, that was recorded by Kyle Anderson at the bands practice space at Studio 52. The band came through HQ earlier this summer, and gave us a sneak peak of the title track, and its safe to say they brought some of the most raw energy the basement sessions have seen yet. It was one of the first nice days of this scorching Allston summer, so we had to celebrate with a few notch pills and fresh bud! Check out the video for “Keeper” below and make sure to catch the band in the flesh at O’brien’s on August 28th (Tix Here).
