We’re pretty tired of fighting through algorithms to find new music. There are so many new releases every day that some incredible artists just get buried in the mix, and it’s almost impossible to know if you’ve missed something.
Our music staff can help, with a handpicked hour of new music every night of the week! Get caught up on new music that matters, chosen by our team of students, not by algorithms. It’s All New, from 8 pm to 9 pm, on 88.9.
When thinking about the underground music scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s, one of the first things that probably comes to mind is the West Coast. While it’s true that a lot of big-name bands came from that area, Boston had its fair share of grunge and alternative rock bands. Here are just three of our many favorite early alt-rock bands–with some of our favorite songs of theirs–that hail from the Greater Boston area that we want to show some love to.
