In a world where bubblegum tunes tend to drown out meaningful music, hidden gem of a local band Kings of Oblivion shines through. Laura Lauda and Wysh “I’m Easy” Seidmans’ music and lyrics sweep through your senses. Lines like, “The bushmeat trade is hard to kill, with power cuts for mouths to fill, as mankind’s nearest cousins slip away, and Kabila schemes to stay” or "The Middle East is burning, our work there is through, Middle Earth is history except for a distant sequel or two,” linger in a way that whipping your hair back and forth could never achieve. The duo were a perfect fit for the annual Porchfest music festival, playing for the crowd on Boulder’s beautiful Mapleton Hill.
