Guster releases new EP, kicks off Tour with Jack's Mannequin

Today marks the release of On The Ocean, the new EP from iconic alt-pop outfit Guster. Guster has been growing their cult-like fanbase for over 15 years now, and as evident by their latest album Easy Wonderful, they are only getting better. The band feels the release of Easy Wonderful marked a turning point in their career, and believe they have emerged from the process as "stronger players, writers and record makers".

This 6 song collection features previously unreleased tracks as well as a few acoustic versions and remixes of songs that will be familiar to Guster fans.  While the EP is available from your traditional digital outlets such as itunes and amazon, the band will hold true to their progressive nature, making physical copies of the album only available from independent retailers and at the shows themselves.

Below is a list of the tour dates for Guster's summer run with Jack's Mannequin. Make sure you find your way to the show when they're in your town, and experience for yourself the effect "feeling more energized about our music and playing together than ever" has had on the band's already legendary live performance copies of the album only available from independent retailers and at the shows themselves.

Phish | Broomfield, Colorado | 10/10/2010

Phish is back in Colorado... just a mere two months earlier we were all out in Telluride to catch Phish at one of the most stellar locales in America.  1st Bank Arena, in Broomfield, Colorado might be in the middle of cookie-cutter American looking architecture -- but the promoters did get it right after renovating 1st Bank back in 2008>2009.  The place was a complete disaster when it first opened in 2006.  The place was riddled with parking problems, crummy acoustics and a real lack of interest from bands, special events, etc.   I guess the Colorado GOP had their little shindig there, which should give you an indication right away how lame this place was…

Now it’s still the same building in the same cookie-cutter location, but what has changed has made all the difference! This place sounds good! Really good…it’s small too, nearing about 6500 at full capacity.  You're not going to catch Phish in a smaller venue in 2010.  Sure us lucky folk who started seeing Phish in the early 90's will still boast seeing the band in a venue holding less than 500 (for me that was Liberty Hall in Lawrence, KS on 4/1/92 -- still my favorite Phish show.. get it!).  However, catching Phish in this relatively intimate venue is pretty cool considering the alternative…Pepsi Center or gag…Fiddler's Green (or whatever they're calling the schwaggy place nowadays).

Trey sounds great.  They really tore the roof off the place last night.  Highlights for me:  Julius was a rager – Golgi is always a lot of fun to hear.  Mike’s Song > Simple > Ghost > Weekapaug Groove had a little bit of everything.   Trey introduced a new song last night titled: “My problem Right There” – Sure Senior Ernesto is one of the most prolific song writers out there… I will confess on average, however, I am probably fond of only 1/3 new songs Trey has brought forth over the past decade or so – But this song I liked right away. Most songs take a least a few listens before I know the song well-enough to gauge if I truly dig it – but this song is catchy, bluesy and I enjoyed it from the get-go.

The band is hot. They sound great.  Check out Grateful Web’s videos from the shows – We’ll have more up on Tuesday as well as photos and phan interviews.
