Jefferson | All the Love in the World | Review

Submitted by Janne Zawa on Mon, 03/18/2013 - 3:51 pm

Coming this May from Spectra Records, Australian four piece Jefferson's debut album All the Love in the World benefits from strong production. It surrounds the collection with a powerful modern sheen while retaining a breathing, organic sound. Geoff Rana's vocals remind me of a younger, Girlfriend-era Matthew Sweet's singing and the band demonstrates tremendous chemistry for an unit that has been playing together for three years.

Dirtfoot | George's Majestic Lounge | Fayetteville, AR | Review

Submitted by Michelle Miesse on Mon, 03/18/2013 - 3:30 pm

There aren’t really any proper words in the English dictionary to describe a Dirtfoot show. However, due to my lack of knowledge of other languages (with the exception of Hermano [thanks, Arrested Development!] and countless useless German words) I am going to attempt to describe Dirtfoot using the English language.

G. Love & Special Sauce | Boulder, Theater | 3/15/2013 | Review

Submitted by Sara Reifman on Sat, 03/16/2013 - 3:45 pm

On Friday, March 15, the iconic Philadelphia group, G. Love & Special Sauce, graced Boulder with their presence.  G. Love and Special Sauce (comprised of Garret “G. Love” Dutton, Jim “Jazz” Prescott, and Jeff “Houseman” Clemens) is known for their unique R&B musical dialect.  A mix of an unseasonably warm evening and budding spring fever brought an energetic and eclectic crowd to see this trio play their hearts out.

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 | Soulpocalypse | Review

Submitted by Cyrus Rhodes on Wed, 03/13/2013 - 9:42 am

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.

New American Famers | 'Brand New Day' | Review

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.

Steep Canyon Rangers w/Jeff Sipe | Boulder, CO | 3/9/13 | Review

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.
