platinum album by James Taylor.

--OLD FLAME--
Old Flame is a machine that kills fascists. Formed in the mire of the 2017 presidential election with one unshakable intention: to make their art as an active form of resistance and never cease. Born in the DIY basements, garages and fields of Western-Mass, the indie-rock band spins grit, unapologetic politics, and honey-rasp vocals into a psychedelic punk-rock nostalgia, whose edge is a howling afterglow of raw blues.

Old Flame is comprised of valley native Emma Ayres (Emma June), Sam Perry (Dios Trio), Ken Birchall and Nate Mondschein (The Rooks). Make yer art. Don't ever stop.
