Finding Deluka

I don’t know why sometimes the electronic, new-wave, Brit-pop type sound appeals to me, but it does.  Maybe it’s a reminder to me of the 80′s.  (Should I have written that??) Anyhow. Deluka has been stirring it up in the UK for awhile, but with their newly-released self-titled EP they are getting attention here in the...

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...

A Melodic Daydream: Indie for Grownups

When LnZ Kade of A Melodic Daydream sent me their latest project, A Little Weird, I wasn’t quite sure how to describe what I was hearing. Oh, I can’t help it.  The pun is just sitting there waiting to be used. It was a little weird. Not that the music itself is weird, or the record,...

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...

Un-common John: A Conversation with John Common

There’s been a lot of buzz about Beautiful Empty, the new record by John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light, since its release in January.  I attended the release party at Casselman’s in Denver, and wrote about it here and here.  Since then, JC& BFL have continued to play and promote the record, and...

Regret Night Steps Up

This post is supplementary to my article on Examiner.com. When you first start writing about a local music scene, you are, in a sense, late to the party. You find yourself running to catch up becuase all you have to go on is what you see in front of you, and you have to try and...

Indie Folk with a Twist of Brit: Mumford & Sons

I saw these guys for the first time during their debut performance on David Letterman, and I was immediately captivated.  Four guys from London doing their own unique take on folk/bluegrass?  London’s gotta be, what, 4000 miles from the Appalachians?   But they make it work.  Here’s the clip below:  listen for yourself.  (And...
