Driven by the need to bridge the gap between artist and listener, Miss Geo’s debut studio album “Connection” is an exploratory journey into the emotions that bind people together. Primarily mixed by Rob Arbelo (Brain Tan), with a contributing track mixed by Matthew Beaudoin (St. Vincent, Ryan Adams), “Connection” brings Miss Geo’s distinct instrumental and lyrical aesthetic to the forefront, and introduces them to the public.
Each song representsa different emotion, and morphs stylistically from the dirty electro underground beats and fuzzy dance bass lines of ‘Miles from Home’ and ‘Techno Entry’, to the sheen melodic synth layers of ‘Sea Between’, and stretches higher to the dream pop bohemian rhythms heard in ‘Daydreaming’.
The songs are further articulated by the lyrics and melodies that help personify each emotion. ‘Sea In Between’ explores hope and youthful exuberance: “We’re love and lust and bones, all the places we could go.” ‘Answers’ reflects on betrayal. It’s the confession you’ve always wanted from a swindler, who broke your heart: “I know it hurts when you’re playing for keeps, but just let go cause knives cut too deep.” While their dance anthem ‘Techno Entry’ is an encounter with a moment of indecision; “You turn to face it; good luck, just make a move…the past and future they both talk.”
The Boston-based band first gained exposure in 2014 when Filter Magazine picked up their first single “Waves” and described their songs as a “perfect mix of fuzz and synth”. Consisting of an international pair, Pascaline Mary (hailing from Paris, France) manages the synths and backing vocals, and Abby Heredia (Filipino-American) takes the helm on the lead vocals and guitar. They were brought together by chance at the Apple store while attending a recording demonstration, and found themselves bonding over similar musical influences and their mutual love of the DIY music making process. They write, record, and produce all their songs.
Since their formation, they have released two EP’s (Self Titled, and Shapes) which have gained a stream of recognition within the blogsphere. They’ve also been invited as supporting acts for The Blow, Lovers, and Robert Delong among others.
In 2016, they added a third live member to the mix, Polish multimedia artist Alex Miklowski on bass. In regards to what they hope to accomplish with this release and their live shows, Mary says; “We embraced our joy and darkness in this album. After spending time exploring different creative processes, we feel it’s a new fusion point for us as a band.” Heredia adds, “Each song represents an emotion and interpretation of our experiences. Our lives are so intertwined and we hope people can feel something from it.”
Their full-length album “Connection” is scheduled for release this Fall 2016 and will be accompanied by a national tour.

Little Musket w/ The Guys Who Tried
Hailing from Boston Massachusetts it is hard to put a finger on exactly what genre Little Musket falls into. Drawing influences from both modern indie, as well as the tried and true formulas of old time-y folk and country western, Musket’s music is both familiar and fresh all at once. The incorporation of the classic and largely forgotten folk instrument, the autoharp, in conjunction with whimsical songwriting gives Little Musket her trademark dark, yet playful sound, creating a genre she likes to call “Melancountry”
Manguito is an off-shoot of Mango Blue bringing you Musical stylings from Cuba such as Rumba, Comparsa and Son, Bomba, Plena and Jíbaro music from Puerto Rico and Merengue from the Dominican Republic. Ecuadorian-born bassist, singer, composer and arranger Alex Alvear is an established artist in both Ecuador and the New England music scene. Before arriving to the US in 1986, Alvear co-founded and co-lead two ground-breaking musical projects which left an imprint on the musical landscape of Ecuador. The “Urban Folklore” ensemble Promesas Temporales is considered to be a milestone in the development of new and original music. Rumbasón was Ecuador’s first Cuban music ensemble which in addition to performing in sold-out performances for thousands of people, it opened the doors for the creation of radio shows and clubs dedicated to Salsa in the city of Quito.
Watch Alex Alvear & Mango Blue Perform “Mango”, if you like Mango Blue, you’re bound to love MANGUITO!

Known for his work in groups like Antibalas, The Sway Machinery, Bright Moments and Akoya Afrobeat, multi-instrumentalist and producer Nikhil P. Yerawadekar* founded the band Low Mentality in 2011. The group brings a new bass- and beat-oriented rock and roll sound to the table, merging qualities of Afrobeat, reggae, dancehall, calypso, hip-hop and folk music. Nikhil’s vision for Low Mentality is more a reflection of his upbringing in the melting pot of Queens, NY than that of any particular musical niche. The aim is to have the science, the id and the appreciation all there together at the party without worrying about what is what. The group’s dance video for “Run Fast” premiered on Okayafrica in 2013, and the song was featured on NPR’s Afropop Worldwide radio program as well as on the ParisDJs compilation Have You Ever Been To Electric Afroland? While working on an exciting collaboration with the legendary Ethiopian keyboardist, accordionist and bandleader Hailu Mergia under the auspices of the famed Awesome Tapes From Africa blog and record label, the group recently released their debut vinyl single “Reel It In” on 3rd Generation Recordings. The tune has made its mark on radio throughout the US, getting featured on the likes of WFMU, PRI and KEXP, where it was named Song Of The Day. Nikhil and Low Mentality are currently set to release their debut album, Everything Lasts Forever, in April 2016.
M’bolo plays mbalax, the high energy music of Senegal. “M’bolo” means “together” in Wolof, a language spoken in Senegal. Cheikh Ngom, lead singer and songwriter, was born and raised in Kaolack, a city on the coast of Senegal. He has been singing, dancing, and playing sabar drums all his life. He has performed throughout Africa, Europe and the U.S. Dillon Zahner, Galen Gregory Willett, and Beza “bayz” Gebre, M’bolo’s guitarist, bass player, and drummer met at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. They share a love of West African rhythms. When they heard Cheikh perform at a Cambridge Club, they joined him and formed M’bolo. M’bolo has been performing for about three years.
