Song of the Day: 'Melted Rainbow' by Mr. Gnome

The complex, in-your-face art rock of Cleveland's Mr. Gnome belies just how fun it can be. "Melted Rainbow" isn't just artsy; it's a gloriously poppy, simply thrilling, slightly psychedelic anthem.

Around 2005, I stumbled upon the New Pornographers via one of those ubiquitous sampler CDs stuck in the middle of every music magazine of the aughts. The song "Use It" lead me to seek out the rest of the band's third album "Twin Cinema." It was love at first listen.

The New Pornographers' sixth studio album is "Brill Bruisers," a fast, energetic record that showcases the band's numerous vocalists and musicians (Neko Case and Dan Bejar, to name a few). Heavy on synths, but also on guitars, it's a fresh take on rock 'n' roll, not afraid to explore new approaches and techniques.

Things got weird at the Peabody Opera House on Wednesday, as Primus followed an opening set of their classic material with a psychedelic take on the songs from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

New York City band Hollands (husband-and-wife duo John-Paul and Jannina Norpoth) lets it all rip -- clever lyrics, charming harmonies, a string interlude, a whole lot of groove and even more fuzz -- on the new track "Great White Shark." A song with so many elements shouldn't have so much bite, but somehow its orchestral-rock teeth sink in deep.

Scottish natives, We Were Promised Jetpacks and Twilight Sad, packed a full-house at the Old Rock House on a seasonably warm Sunday night.

Song of the Day: 'Brunch' by S

The anti-SEF band S features Jenn Ghetto from long-lost, pre-Band of Horses cult group Carissa's Wierd with production assistance from Chris Walla from very-much-not-a-cult-band Death Cab for Cutie. "Brunch" is as delicious and darkly satisfying as indie guitar pop gets.

Song of the Day: 'Riddles' by Old Wave

Opening with guazy folk-tronica and shifting into a tense but still spectral indie-rock sound, "Riddles" by Portland, Oregon essay writing service band Old Wave (formerly known as Adam Brock 4; good call on changing names) is nothing if not hard to solve, even as it's quite an inviting listen.

The band Young Tongue surely knows from whence comes the phrase "heavy metal" (that would be Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild"), but there's nothing pedantic (let alone metal) about the new track "Heavy Metal Thunder." It's a blast of classic, harmony-and-riff-driven rock 'n' roll.
