Gabrielle Louise: Musical Wanderlust

This post complements my article on Examiner.com. Denver-based singer/songwriter Gabrielle Louise is an indie musician; but whatever sound or image that classification puts in your mind, don’t trust it.  Even if you’re correct in your assumptions about her music, you probably won’t be correct for long. Although Gabrielle has a distinct sense of identity as...

Someone Come and Save My Life

I love when a song so stirs (haunts?) me that I’m compelled to play it over and over. City and Colour is the solo moniker for Dallas Green, lead singer for Canadian band Alexisonfire.  The song below, ”Sleeping Sickness”, is off the solo effort Bring Me Your Love.  I first heard it as background music...

Andrea Ball: “Dial Tone”

I first heard Andrea Ball play as one of the opening acts for Elin Palmer during her CD release party.  Now, she’s got a CD release party of her own. Dial Tone–both the record and the title track–carry the distinction to me of being both eclectic and catchy, a feat not easily attained. The...

Joe Pug and the Music I Don’t Get to Hear Live Tonight

Dang. I’d been planning for a solid month to catch this guy live in Denver.  Joe Pug.  He’s opening tonight for Justin Townes Earle, and weather and circumstances prevented me from going. So I guess the next best thing is to share some of his stuff with you. The first song below, “The Sharpest Crown”,...

Album Review: Megan Burtt “It Ain’t Love”

This post is supplementary to my article on Examiner.com. I’m definitely a fan of local talent, and always appreciate the opportunity to check out new material.  But to be honest, now that pretty much everyone and their uncle can make a record, I usually start out not expecting too much.  Even among the stuff that isn’t...

Oh…St. Vincent is a Girl?

February 12, 2010

I know I just posted a vid by Feist, so I swear I’m not fixated on indie girls or anything.  I’m just posting this because St. Vincent is an interesting name for a female act, plus I just think the music sounds interesting.  Plus she is playing here in Denver this weekend at the...

Feist–Just ‘Cause I Think It’s a Catchy Tune

Feist–Just ‘Cause I Think It’s a Catchy Tune

Word to the wise: if your Internet (or computer) is of the slower variety, let this vid load awhile before playing it. (VEVO is notoriously bulky.) But the picture quality is pretty good. Buy Feist’s “The Reminder” on Amazon

So It’s a Few Years Old…A Classic Is a Classic

So It’s a Few Years Old…A Classic Is a Classic

I love Brandi Carlile’s voice in this song. I especially like the rawness of her voice in the last verse. Sometimes those imperfections reveal passion, and those are the best moments. The idea of having story in our lives is also a big theme with me right now. Buy “The Story” from Amazon
