Dear music loving friends,
This is a video we made with Seattle band Hey Marseilles when they came to visit our fair city of Denver. Listening to Hey Marseilles play their song “Heart Beats” took me back to an evening in 1999 when I stumbled into a show and heard Death Cab For Cutie for the very first time. There is a sincerity in the lyrics and chords that make you happy and sad all at the same time. And to me– that is the best kind of art…everything at once, the good and the bad, the salty and the sweet.
I hope you’ll like them as much as we do.
Friends & family!
This is a trailer for next week’s episode on Hey Marseilles. We absolutely loved this shoot! It was a cold snowy evening in Denver, the band was playing at the Hi-Dive but we impulsively crossed the street and were welcomed into a bookstore to film their interview and performance.
What a special shoot, thank you to the Hey Marseilles guys and crew!
We had so much fun spending time with the Oak Creek Band!! They are SO talented and yet so humble. It’s rare to find such talented people be so down to earth and kind. Plus they taught us how to tie-dye t-shirts, and sang us into a happy oblivion. What more could you ask for?
Thanks Oak Creek for making such lovely music.
I dare you not to like this song by Lorde! It’s been stuck in my head for days…and I couldn’t be happier about it.
We crave a different kind of buzz…
A while back the amazingly talented Oak Creek invited us over to their house for some music and some tie-dying fun! Their episode will premiere next week, so be sure to tune in. In the meantime, please take a look at the trailer and start to crush on their awesome music and kind hearts.
Matthew Houck’s sixth album Munchacho, was just released, and we can’t get enough of it. Today’s anthem of the day, is a a six minute track from the new record entitled “Song for Zula”. And Zula, whoever you are, thanks for inspiring such an opus. We owe you one.
We were so lucky to be able to spend an afternoon with Portland’s Radiation City. They are getting ready to release a new album next month entitled “Animals in the Median“. You can pre-order the album here. You have to order the limited edition yellow vinyl though!! How cools is that!?
We wish these friends and fellow skee ball players the best of luck, and can’t wait to see them again when they hit the road this summer.
Our friends Ian Cooke, Ray Trout and Ian O’Dougherty just released this great documentary about a collaboration between Ian Cooke and the 303 choir (OMG the 303 kids are so awesome).
Trout, a media producer, and O’Dougherty, a musician (Ian Cooke, Uphollow, Tauntaun, Eolian) and video editor, have been producing this doc since early 2012 with no budget. SO to support them you can go to www.iancookemusic.com to download an HD video file of the final performance, plus a 5-track EP featuring several versions of the song, documenting the evolution from demo to finale.
We LOVE Denver and it’s amazing musicians. So proud to live here!!
