Holiday Shores Play DENVER At Hi Dive On 11/9 With Evangelicals

Columbus'd The Whim is the first first full-length album from Pemberton's Holiday Shores, who, like the street that bears their name, are quintessentially summer: chimey guitars, reverb-soaked vocals, warbling Rhodes, echoes of years past.

Pemberton started playing the piano at age seven and learned the guitar shortly after. He began finding his musical footing in high school bands, playing with his brother, friends, and eventually his college roommates.

The album, packed with 10 could-be singles, reads like a book of Pemberton's well-written memories. Each word chosen meaningfully with a linguist's touch; each sentence constructed carefully with an artist's ear. Columbus'd The Whim is a literary work in addition to a sonic one.

The current line up, comprised of friends and roommates spent months recording together in Pemberton's living room obsessing over vintage gear and perfecting their captivating hooks, heart-warming melodies, and creating a haunting tunnel of sound as a stunning backdrop.

Columbus'd The Whim is Holiday Shores' first release on twosyllable records.

White Rabbits Play DENVER At Larimer Lounge On 10.30

After spending the better part of two years on the road (including festival stops at Lollapallooza, Glastonbury (UK), Sasquatch, Monolith and tours with The Walkmen, Spoon, Richard Swift, The Cribs, White Denim and Tokyo Police Club) White Rabbits hunkered down in their Brooklyn practice space to set about re-envisioning the dark pop of their debut Fort Nightly, while adding new sounds and influences to achieve an original work.  The result is It’s Frightening, their second full-length album.

White Rabbits signed to TBD Records (US home to Radiohead/Other Lives/Hatcham Social) and erected a makeshift studio in their basement rehearsal space to demo new material.  Band members popped in and out over the course of several months lending ideas and personality to a new batch of songs that defy instant categorization. After enlisting tourmate, friend and songwriter Britt Daniel (Spoon) as producer, the pair began the process of exchanging demos between Brooklyn and Portland.  White Rabbits recorded It’s Frightening over the course of four weeks, only taking a break to play the Transmusicales Festival in Rennes, France.  The sessions were recorded by visionary engineer Nicholas Vernhes (Animal Collective, Deerhunter) at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, NY.  Taking special care to recreate the unhinged nature of the original demos, the band utilized the wide range of tools in the analog-friendly studio to shape the personal spirit infused in the new tracks.  Upon the completion of tracking, White Rabbits traveled to Austin, TX to mix the record with studio wizard Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail Of Dead) using his exceptional ears to transform It’s Frightening into a uniquely rewarding headphone experience.

It’s Frightening plays like a classic reel of tape from start to finish. Opening with the visceral drums of “Percussion Gun,” it is clear that time-off from the road has served the band well.  The many highlights include the emotional centerpiece “Company I Keep,” the new sonic territory of “Lionesse” and the macabre lyrics of “Right Where They Left.”  Fans of Fort Nightly will find much to go weak in the knees over and new listeners are in for an awakening as White Rabbits flip the switch on an already impressive beginning. It’s Frightening is a journey into the playfully dark musings of Everyman.

The lineup : Stephen Patterson (vox/piano), Jamie Levinson (drums), Matthew Clark (drums, guitar), Alex Even (guitar), Gregory Roberts (guitar/vox). A U.S. tour will follow the May release of It’s Frightening.

Deastro Plays DENVER At Larimer Lounge on 11.21 With Max Tundra

The title of Deastro's "Tone Adventure #3" may evoke a "working  title"-like looseness--why name a song when you can simply number it?--but the track itself is one of Moondagger's tightest. "Tone Adventure #3" is an archetypal Deastro song, as Randolph Chabot sprints through catchy, melodic passages with maniacal conviction, howling about feet being "strapped to cannon balls" from behind a wall of computer-generated atmosphere. In keeping with its title, "Tone Adventure #3" is more psychedelic than much of Moondagger, warping its instruments into unrecognizable, mutant sound-entities. Glockenspiels, spy-movie guitars, orchestral stabs, and alien ray guns all make appearances--as they should in any good adventure.

On "Tone Adventure #3"'s B-side, Toronto electro producer I Am Robot And Proud remixes Moondagger's "Greens, Grays, and Nordics" into a joyous, MIDI-fueled daydream. The song's previously sinister tone gets the lo-fi electronics treatment from the Robot's gleeful presets--the re-harmonized final chorus alone is worth the price of admission.

Randolph Chabot has been making albums since he was 12 years old -- now, at 22, the Detroit-based musician known as Deastro is ready for his close-up.

"Vermillion Plaza" the second single from Deastro's upcoming full-length debut Moondagger, miniaturizes the album's best assets and shoots them out of a cannon. Plucky synth arpeggios, end-of-the-world choruses, joyously careening melody lines--it's all there, squashed into a life-affirming three minutes and 50 seconds. When Chabot pleads for contact, singing, "Would you be my son / 'cause all of mine have died?," it's less a cry of self-pity than an exhilarating salute to the power of human connection.

Recently, Chicago-based photographer/videographer James P. Morse--a longtime friend and collaborator of Ghostly's--followed Chabot around Detroit for a day and edited the footage into "Ghostly Presents: Deastro," a video profile whose warm, colorful aesthetic matches Chabot's energy and positivity to a T. Chabot putters around his Detroit home, visits his favorite bookstore, gushes about Isaac Asimov and Simone de Beauvoir, and plays a sweaty, packed show with his band. It's a loving portrait of an artist who stays true to his beliefs, staying passionate, engaged, and creative in all of his endeavors.

Deastro's full-band debut, Moondagger, arrived on June 23rd, on Ghostly International.

The Subjects Play DENVER At Hi Dive On 10.10 With Bad Veins

Despite their clandestine and controversial beginnings (two band members were teachers and two were students at the same high school), The Subjects have managed to carve a name for themselves that sounds more like "Rushmore" than "School of Rock." Back in 2002, guitarist Joe Smith and bassist/vocalist Dave Sheinkopf were splitting their time between writing songs and syllabi, while drummer/vocalist Matt Iwanusa and guitarist Jimmy Carbonetti were about to bust out of the same Manhattan school. Since both parties were in desperate need of a full band, they held some rehearsals and once it became clear that the quartet's chemistry was pretty damn combustible, the Subjects were born.

Fast-forward a few years and things get a bit more complicated. The Subjects’ debut is dropped (2007’s With the Ease Grace Precision and Cleverness of Human Beings) and they hit the road, at first on their own and then with the Walkmen a few months later.

“We were always serious about playing music,” says Iwanusa, “but when we started meeting and playing with bands that were making music for a living we got to see how they did it.”

Keeping that career path in mind, the Subjects dove right into the demo stages for New Soft Shoe, firing up minimalist recordings in the style of their first full-length. Once those songs were ready for a proper studio, the band headed over to Key Club Recording Co. a couple hours outside Chicago. By working closely with Key Club’s masterful engineers, William Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins (see also: rock-solid releases from Cass McCombs, The Kills and Fiery Furnaces), the Subjects were able to whip up their wildest ideas, expanding their arsenal with everything from old-fashioned organs to honky-tonk pianos to Matt’s mom on saxophone.

“A lot of the instrumentation on this record came from stuff I learned in school—stuff I never thought I’d use,” says Sheinkopf, citing his training in classical harmony.

The first thing you’ll notice about the final product is the vocals—the way the melody in “Winter Vacation” unfolds like a spare Animal Collective A-Side; the brilliant shuffleboard beats/honeyed harmonies of “Right2Know.” Beyond that, the ep spreads the Subjects’ various strengths across the divergent tastes of four distinct songwriters in just 10 minutes. Well, divergent in terms of pulling cues from several eras and subgenres. All and all, the current state of the Subjects is as cohesive as a dictator-less band gets.

“Most of the arrangements on the first record are within the constraints of a four-piece band,” explains Iwanusa. “Now everyone’s more comfortable trying to sing and play different instruments. We all stepped it up this time.”

The Builders And The Butchers Play DENVER At The Fillmore

It was a typical rainy Portland afternoon at Ray Rude’s house (who plays “drums” in The Builders), hanging with friends when Ryan decided to show them what he was working on.  Something clicked that afternoon and within minutes everyone in attendance found something to play.  Alex Ellis happened to have an old acoustic bass, and Harvey Tumbleson had borrowed a Mandolin, Ray sat down at the piano and they just started playing.  Paul Seely joined the band a week later as a drummer and instrumentalist and The Builders and The Butchers were born.

Starting innocently enough as a fully acoustic rambling bunch, seeking out audiences on street corners and outside of venues, make no mistake this is not another story of busking come good, The Builders were not looking for money nor were they looking for fame, they were just playing the music they wanted to on their own terms. The band didn’t work out parts on these early songs, they were developed playing on the street, and this philosophy carries through today, by choosing to develop songs live or at rehearsal.  Ryan Sollee says “Something special happens when we get in a room and try to work out a song.  If I come in with a developed song it never seems to sound as good or it does not sound like The Builders.” In particular it was at these performances that Ray and Paul worked out their unique “deconstructed” drum style.

They played in the rain and cold of Portland winters until instruments were warped and broken, then one day the Builders sold out and booked a real show, then another, and crowds soon were seeking the Builders out.  At the early shows it was hard to distinguish the band from the audience, nothing was mic'd or amplified, and seemingly everyone in the audience had a shaker, washboard, or were just beating on the wall and singing.  All in attendance saw something special happening, a Portland audience was having fun, singing along and participating, the music demanded a celebration.  Within a year, the Builders would win the Willamette Week’s “Best New Band of 2008” and Seattle Sound’s “Best Live Performers 2008”and completed supporting tours with the Helio Sequence, Brand New, Langhorne Slim, Amanda Palmer, Dax Riggs, Murder By Death and Port O’brien.

The Builders don't pay homage to old America, they channel it.  All of the basic instruments are there, acoustic bass, drum, guitar, banjo, and mandolin.  They mix gospel, blues, and bluegrass and howl desperate story-songs that latch onto your brain and demand immediate attention.

The timeless sound of their songs, harkens back to a time long passed in music, but reflecting the dark times of the present.  Their self-titled debut was released in 2007 and showcases the bands early raw sound. Their latest release titled Salvation Is A Deep Dark Well is a much more complete work showcasing the bands full potential.  On Salvation, the Builders worked with producer Chris Funk from the Decemberists who brought with him a throng of expertise, patience, instruments, and some of the best musicians in Portland.  Salvation record combines the immediacy of the Builders early work with more a developed songwriting, each one with its own personality and story to tell.  In the vein of the Southern Gothic tales Ryan weaves stories of struggle with the usual cast of characters God, the Devil, soldiers, branches, wind, rain and hell fire.  The record starts with a piano chord and an eerie wind escalating into the thunderous “Golden and Green”, stomp and grinds its way through “Devil Town” and “The Short Way Home”, to the Spanish tinged “Barcelona and “Raise Up”, and the soaring chorus of “In The Branches”, ending with a lesson of hope in the gospel homage“The World is a Top”.

The story of Salvation is a Deep Dark Well is that there’s joy and celebration through the darkness, there’s light in the hardest of times, and when you reach the bottom may salvation light your way.

Tiësto On Jonsi: "Working with Jonsi was inspiring.  Sigur Ros is one of my favorite bands of all time, so getting a chance to collaborate was very special for me.  I flew to see them in Chicago when the band was on tour and we met up again a few times after that.  I wrote the track and Jonsi came back with beautiful lyrics and melodies. Kaleidoscope became the title track for my new album because it captures the essence of what I was trying to do...to work with different people and trade ideas, hopefully resulting in an album that is unique and uplifting."

The Gaslight Anthem Ogden Theatre, Denver, CO

Say hello to the crowd, tell some stories, play a few songs, crack a couple of jokes and say goodnight. The format for a live concert is fairly predictable, even for those who have not attended very many. The Gaslight Anthem's ability to take this simple formula and turn it into something memorable is what separates them from many of the others bands I have seen.

PHIX to play TWO shows in Denver this weekend

Paul from Phix- for the Grateful Web

Ever since Phish announced their reunion, our heads have been FILLED with Phishy thoughts.  We've been digging back through our collections and listening to all of the old shows with a renewed love for the music.  And though rumors abound regarding some Phish shows in Colorado this summer, nothing has been announced yet.  And we are well aware that, as lucky as a couple of us are to be going to Hampton next month, MOST folks here in Colorado didn't get so lucky and will have to miss out.  So we thought, what the hell, let's play a couple of PHIX shows here in Denver...it'll be a little warm-up for the reunion shows and the summer tour, a little Phix for those who can't be there for whatever reason.  And it'll most definitely be a blast, and a great chance to get together with all of our friends who we don't see so often these days...

We should also add that we have opening acts on both nights, both of which feature Phix bass beeyotch Brian Adams, the hardest-working bassist in Colorado.  On Friday 2/13, the band is Ethereal Plane, featuring Patrick Latella on guitar and some outstanding funky, fusiony jams.  On Sat. 2/14, the opener is Magnolia Row, a wonderful bluegrass band featuring excellent musicianship and beautiful vocal harmonies.  We think you'll really enjoy both bands, and we hope you'll get there early both nights to hear them play.  Music will get going by 9:30, if not earlier, and Phix will take the stage by 10:45 or so both evenings.

We look forward to seeing our Colorado friends and family at these shows, and we thank everyone for all the support you have given us over the years.  It'll probably be a while before you get another e-mail from us, since these are the only Phix shows we have on the calendar.  We don't know what the future holds for Phix, but we have been very thankful for the opportunities we have had to get back together over the last year or so, and it may still happen again in the future...but meanwhile, we're all looking forward to getting out to see the real deal this spring and summer, and we hope to bump into some of you at the shows.  

Bill Kreutzmann is Coming to Denver and Boulder - Feb 20 & 21

see Billy K on tour in February- for the Grateful Web

Bill Kreutzmann, Grateful Dead drummer for the band's entire thirty year career, tours this February with his new power trio featuring bassist Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers Band) and guitarist Scott Murawski (Max Creek).  The tour, which is also the trio's west coast debut, launches a busy year ahead for Kreutzmann; The Dead recently announced they will reunite for a run of dates this spring.

Bill Kreutzmann featuring Oteil Burbridge and Scott Murawski is sure to capture the interest of music lovers of many genres of music.
