David Bowie | The Next Day | Review

Submitted by Jason Chiu on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 3:54 pm

David Bowie is back. Just reading that sentence elicits squeals of glee from fans young and old. He didn’t have to make any new music, really. Bowie’s legacy has been sealed ever since the 70s, and any new music is just icing on the cake. After 2003’s Reality and a terrifying stage collapse in 2004, it looked like Bowie was done with music, but then he came back when we least expected it. We didn’t need this, but we got it anyway.

The Brown Edition's new release from Spectra Jazz, Soulpocalypse, is nothing less than a cause for collective rejoicing. The superbly assembled album marks a throwback of sorts - they hail from another era when outstanding outfits like The Electric Flag, Blodwyn Pig, and Blood Sweat and Tears recorded on the cutting edge of popular music.

Submitted by Stephen Boyd on Tue, 03/12/2013 - 6:35 pm

Paul Knowles and Nicole Storto keep it real as a banana peel, and whole heartedly encourage the listener to grow their own fruits and vegetables, with Brand New Day.  In their words; “The songs are about the human experience, putting a spotlight on those that are less fortunate, songs about having different viewpoints from the accepted norms when it comes to immigration, food, philosophy and materialism.

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Sun, 03/10/2013 - 12:57 pm

North Carolina’s Steep Canyon Rangers have been picking quality bluegrass since their formation in the early 2000s, but it took a little while for their well-deserved recognition and success to begin snowballing.

Submitted by Cyrus Rhodes on Fri, 03/08/2013 - 6:27 pm

One can say that Sarah Petrella’s path to the release of her debut EP started from the moment she was born. She wrote her first song before the age of 10, and went on to immerse herself in musical theatre. Now, Sarah brings her lifelong passion for songwriting to the world via a three song EP, titled Summer.

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Fri, 03/08/2013 - 4:15 pm

The daunting task of interpreting the music of Frank Zappa has made the iconized jazz-fusion composer/musician less often a cover project than one might expect.

Good Gravy! & Frogs Gone Fishin' | SpokesBuzz Lounge | Review

Submitted by Matt Cook on Thu, 03/07/2013 - 6:47 pm

The Mishawaka Amphitheater is certainly well known for its intimate location located 30 minutes up the Poudre Canyon. In such a scenic area, it’s no surprise the success of this venue. The Mish consistently puts on quality shows from local bands to national touring acts. A night with Good Gravy headlining just feels natural at Mish.

Mickey Hart Band | Fox Theater | Boulder, CO | 2/28/13 | Review

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 5:36 pm

The contemporary musical universe of Mickey Hart is perfectly aligned with the cosmos. Never has his theological approach to music or pursuit of combining music sensibilities across the globe been so relevant. From the beginnings he sought out further bounds than his primary project, the American rock institution, The Grateful Dead.
