Submitted by Tim Bagnall on Sun, 09/09/2012 - 11:50 am

The last time I saw Lotus was in April 2010 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, CO where my friend – who I treated to the show - had the unfortunate experience of a bicycle accident on his way home afterwards. I’ll never forget the phone call I received the next day when he described the accident; it still makes me laugh.

On September 25th, 2012, Ben Sollee will release his fourth studio album, titled Half-Made Man.  Sollee is known for his innovative cello playing, which he skillfully uses to highlight his songs and grab your attention, and this album is no exception.  Half-Made Man consists of ten well-balanced tracks, including the single “Unfinished.”  The album’s tracks stand strongly alone, as individual pieces of music, and also operate cohesively when pieced together as an album.  Methodical in

In 2002, Dispatch unknowingly made one of the smartest moves out there. After four full-length albums and countless fans (their free farewell show drew well over 100,000 fans from all over the world), one of the original “indie” bands announced a hiatus. Although they reunited every few years for a show or two, fans kept their fingers tightly crossed for a full-on reunion. Nine years after their hiatus began, Dispatch officially reformed.

Certain sounds and flavors that make music can’t help but call to mind those among the long history of music which precedes that of the modern era, however.

Steamy keys, gritty six string, soul drenched stomp. Black Cadillac music, back ally marque blue. Greasy chops deep-fried in fatback. Kick drum with fist on the pulpit thuds, and a cymbal’s smooth splash…riding it…smoky with a hairy funk. That almost covers the sound of the Alan Evans Trio.
