Before I started looking for artists to include on "Boston Not LA", I thought that Boston scene is mostly about punk bands.

Guess what? I was wrong.

Case in point - Jenova 7 (a.k.a. Michael J. Sirois) a local musician and filmmaker, whose work strongly reminds me of people like DJ Shadow or Tommy Guerrero - not the first thing that I would associate with Boston (again).

Needless to say - anyone is highly recommended to check out his work. His more recent album "Soul For Sale" is up for streaming on Bandcamp.
