Another year, another 617 list. Happy June 17th, also known at ‘617 Day,’ the area code for Boston, Massachusetts.
As we continue to embrace (whether we like it or not) our new normal, this year’s list focused on the artists who have been taking advantage of quarantine, have been putting in work since last year’s list or have simply caught my ear through divine timing.
I always forget how time-consuming these lists can be, which is why I didn’t do a MASS. Mondays list for June. This list wasn’t easy and is in no particular order. I’ve also cut it down from 17 to 12. Furthermore, I will be putting a lot more time into highlighting artists from New England as a whole going forward.
If that’s you, please e-mail me your music to: email@example.com or send me a DM on Instagram.
Without further ado, click the numbers below to see who made my 617 Day list.
