• “Dreaming of Giants”

On Wednesday night at the Burlington, local blog/podcast/zine/record label Notes & Bolts celebrated its one-year anniversary with a party that featured performances from Oscillator Bug, Architecture, and Chandeliers. The label has put out a remarkable amount of material over its brief year-long run, including records and tapes from Disappears, Verma, Bigcolour, and Plastic Crimewave. They’re currently running a flexi-disc series, releasing singles from local acts on floppy, square, vinyl discs—a nearly-forgotten media that’s recently been brought back by labels like Castle Face and Rotted Tooth. Notes & Bolts’ newest addition to the series is by local garage favorites Radar Eyes, and will be available just in time for Saturday’s Record Store Day party at Saki, where the band is performing. The single, “Dreaming of Giants,” is today’s 12 O’Clock Track, and sees the usually hooky band take an unexpectedly dark turn into moody postpunk.
