Winterpills On World Cafe


Two distinct strains of music might come to mind when one thinks of the western Massachusetts hamlet of Northampton and the surrounding area. One is the singer-songwriter scene centered around the venue The Iron Horse and the Signature Sounds label. The other is the loud rock scene conjured by J Mascis and Dinosaur Jr.

Those scenes merge somewhat in Love Songs, the new album by area band Winterpills. The band enlisted the help of rock producer Justin Pizzoferrato, who has worked with Dinosaur Jr. and on the latest record by Parquet Courts. Songwriter Philip Price and his bandmate Flora Reed perform live in this World Cafe session.
