I’m keeping it local for this week’s Music Monday with Boston band New Aura. I heard about New Aura completely by accident from a Facebook post about an upcoming show, and being curious when such things happen, I gave them a listen and loved what I heard.
Evoking feelings of listening to 60’s psychedelia while sitting on a California beach, opener “Deja Vu” is my favorite song on this album with its psych guitars and hazy vocals, almost bordering on surf rock. Towards the end, you have “Cut Tooth” and finishing with the instrumental “Mantra”, which has a slight Dick Dale-like sound to it. I was left wanting to hear more. Luckily, they recently released another EP called Aura Mismo. So, head over to their Bandcamp page and check it out!
