Here are just a few of the more promising shows to see this weekend. P-NUCKLE @ HERMAN’S HIDEWAY (Fri., Sept. 28)...

Glowing House “Days Run Out”

I first mentioned husband-and-wife duo Glowing House about a year and a half ago, when I reviewed a record that was two years old back then. After a long wait, this Denver folk act has released their new album Days Run Out–and I can tell you, it was worth the wait. I had the...

Dan Craig: In Dust Bowls

It’s rather surprising that Dan Craig even has time these days to put out a new record. Besides being one of Denver’s premiere singer/songwriters, he’s also a med student, a husband, and recently a new father. Actually, though, this gem of an EP, In Dust Bowls, already had the groundwork laid for it. According...

Best of Denver Locals 2011 (part 4: Top Picks)

Playing catch-up? Read part 1, part 2 and part 3. Okay, okay. I know I said the Top Picks would be announced yesterday…sorry about that. It’s the holidays, and I do have  a family. ‘Nuff said. As I mentioned before, I’m listing some of my favorite Denver acts and songs for 2011. Up until...

Best of Denver Locals 2011 (part 2)

Continuing our recap of some of the best music to come out of Denver this year…here are a couple more of my personal picks for this year’s standouts. Take to the Oars: “Bar Talk” After rocking Denver for several years under the moniker “Vonnegut,” indie-rockers Take to the Oars took a risk and lunged...

Help Stephanie Mabey “Wake Up”

So before I tell you about singer/songwriter Stephanie Mabey, a bit of a disclaimer… Just so you know, I’m a huge believer in crowdfunding projects and sites like Kickstarter, and I’m even down for throwing some money at them myself. But I’ve had some misgivings about promoting artists who are doing Kickstarter campaigns, simply...

Roniit’s Brand of “Dark” Electro Pop

When Denver area artist Roniit (say “Ro-NEET”) sent me a link to her self-titled debut CD a few months ago, I was backlogged and told her it would be awhile before I got to it. However, when I did get a listen, I was pleasantly surprised. I put it on my ipod, and have...

Achille Lauro Does the Low Cha Cha

Indie-rock band Achille Lauro has been a staple in the Denver music scene for several  years, probably better known for their tongue-and-cheekness and their willingness to explore musically than for a particular sound. I (sort of) got to hear them play live once, and the live audio was so terrible, unfortunately (not their fault),...

Quiet Americana

Many people might be more familiar with the name Boulder Acoustic Society than they are with the name Aaron Keim. That’s because Boulder Acoustic Society has been making a name for itself as a progressive band in the bluegrass/roots/neo-folk world over the past several years. But Keim (who happens to be the founder of...

Tyler James: A New Spin on Old Soul

Singer/songwriter Tyler James is a bit of an anomaly.  His bio says he grew up in the Pacific Northwest and in Iowa, and currently hails from Nashville.  But spin his debut record It Took the Fire, and you’d swear he was from Memphis.  And maybe from the 1970s. Don’t misunderstand–James’ blue-eyed soul has a...
