Gavin Caine debuts breezy record "Nine Stories"

Last month, Boston’s Gavin Caine released a record that feels like a cool, sweet ocean breeze on a summer day: Nine Stories is a refreshing look at the life of an artist joyous to share and remember. “Jenny’s Library” is fun, piano-driven, Americana goodness while “Summer Rain” has a tinge of folk to it highlighted by beautiful string work, and fluttering piano notes. “The Lady at the Checkout” is energetic and so easy to follow in both its thumping rhythm and colorful storytelling. Each song, and for that matter story, that Caine pens radiates serious sincerity and light-hearted memories. For an unexpectedly good Tuesday, stream the indie-rock single "Diner Girl" below. - Rene Cobar
