Camera Obscura | Desire Lines | New Music Review

To start, Camera Obscura introduces Desire Lines with a brief, sweeping overture (simply, “Intro”) that hints at the structured dreamscape to come—not that any future tracks on the record revisit the string arrangement procured here; I mean to say that this short, overwrought musical construct belies the band’s aspiration to sublime grandeur in obvious subtext.

The 4onthefloor | Spirit of Minneapolis | Review

I remember back a couple years ago I was spending New Year’s Eve at this little ski hill pub up in New Hampshire, and there was a live band heading up the evening from a corner stage. They were good too, playing your standard classic rock fare of the Stones, Petty, and the like.

Rachel Brown | The Darby | New York, New York | Review

Singer-Songwriter Rachel Brown made her appearance in a weekly residency at the Darby in NYC last Thursday night and if you’re looking for a slam-dunk date spot idea, look no further. Never having been to the Darby before, I was very impressed at what I found: a chill, elegant spot with a modern, more youthful jazz club atmosphere .

Filligar | Larimer Lounge | Denver, CO | Review

About 40 devoted fans stuck it out through two very mediocre bands to hear Filligar on a Tuesday night at Larimer Lounge.  The rock quartet is made up of three blond brothers: Johnny, Teddy and Pete Mathias with their childhood friend Casey Gibson.  They formed in Chicago in 2000, and have released 4 albums.

The Hollows | Neverending Show | Review

Along the lines of Woody Guthrie’s this Land Is Your Land, The Hollows came together from a few regions of the United States.

Donna the Buffalo | Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday | Review

Sweet. Swirly. Pure. If you want to get with any of these words musically, Donna the Buffalo offers these sounds and feelings in each and every song.  The band’s new album, Tonight, Tomorrow and Yesterday, drops 6/18/13 featuring founding members, songwriters and lead vocalists Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins.

Los Amigos Invisibles | Repeat After Me | Review

I first discovered the Venezuelan dance-pop band Los Amigos Invisibles through their Grammy-winning 2009 album Commercial, which represented a conscious effort to reach out to a wider, more global audience than their previous work had attracted. As I listened through their discography, they quickly became one of my favorite bands.

Fruition | Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place | 5/24/13 | Review

Portland’s Fruition stopped into Shine for a memorable night of strings and songs Friday night, boasting a Naropa vibe and an audience clutching craft brews and camaraderie.

Pickin' On the Poudre | Head For The Hills | Drew Emmitt Trio

Get on the Bus! Pickin’ on the Poudre is the quintessential Mishawaka BOOMshakalaka! Awkward as that may seem to describe the Fort Collins bluegrass quartet Head for the Hills composed of Adam Kinghorn (Guitar), Michael Chappell (Mandolin), Joe Lessard (Fiddle), and Matt Loewen (Bass), it’s appropriate. For nine years, H4TH has blown away Cache la Poudre patrons with their acrobatic backwoods antics.

Hot Tuna Acoustic Ft. Steve Kimock | Boulder Theater | Review

Few musical journeys span as long and varied as Jorma and Jack's. As pioneers of the premier San Francisco electric sound with Jefferson Airplane, something else much bigger was meant to spawn and thrive for decades to come.
