a’tris: Automatic Doors
From their 2008 album Lensing
|The alt-rock sound coming out of Boston has a name: a’tris. The group draws upon a myriad of influences to create a noise that moves crowds to their feet. The front man/singer/keyboardist/tunesmith hails from Charlottesville, Virginia. He goes by the name Mason Taylor.
Since relocating to Boston, Taylor has teamed up with several talented musicians, engineers, sonic manipulators, sound wave amplifiers, and assorted players of various instruments. They all have stories to tell. The best way to understand these stories is to come to a show. After listening to the show, you should approach the band member slowly and ask him questions. Buy him a beer. Do not make sudden movements, the musicians tend to be skittish.
