Mean Creek is a rock band from Boston, Massachusetts.
Local Losers coming February 18, 2014 on Old Flame Records
Old Flame Records is pleased to announce the latest release from Boston-based quartet Mean Creek. Local Losers’ eight anthemic tracks clock in at a raucous twenty minutes making for an ultimate ADHD listening experience available on February 18, 2014.
The four members of Mean Creek all grew up together in Massachusetts. Listening to similar sounds from the area, they come from a long tradition of Massachusetts bands who also embraced punk inspired rock music; Mission Of Burma, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr., The Lemonheads- all of these bands left a lasting impact on the members of Mean Creek.
“Local Losers” is the latest offering from the band. Eight tracks that go by at break neck speed, played with the kind of desperation & force only a young, hungry rock band can bring; A true reflection of their energetic live show. These are songs about love, confusion, loneliness, and heartbreak. Throughout all of life’s ups and downs, two things have always held true for these four, their music and friendship. It’s the sounds, ideas, and emotions that they create when they are in a room together, and that is what this album is all about.
Youth Companion now out on Old Flame Records
“Youth Companion is indeed the perfect soundtrack to your nostalgic youth, covering almost every facet of growing up and discovering who you are. It starts with naiveté, longing and learning, but ends with the same heartache and bitterness many of us experience at some point towards the end of our innocence.” - CMJ
“Perhaps the most anticipated Boston record this fall, Youth Companion delivers on the passionate heart-on-sleeve promise the quartet offer each night on stage.” -The Boston Phoenix
“Young & Wild’ is a song that is both romantic and reminiscent. And it calls on the grandeur of Springsteen and the rebellion of the Replacements. Here’s to hoping they’re no longer the Northeast’s best kept secret.” - FILTER Magazine
“‘Young & Wild’ pairs girl-guy vocals with a surging, folk-tinged instrumental – sort of like if Death Cab For Cutie recruited a female singer.” – RCRD LBL
