Happy Friday! This is a perfect song for a snowy day in Colorado. We are starting the weekend here with beautiful grey skies and a layer of snow. Middle Brother is an American rock band consisting of songwriters and musicians John J. McCauley III of Deer Tick, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, and Matt Vasquez of Delta Spirit.
We are really excited for the upcoming Nathanial Rateliff & The Night Sweats show November 29th at the Gothic! It gives us a lot of feelings!! Until then, we will have to keep ourselves distracted with a couple of FREE downloads of “Look it Here” and “Trying So Hard Not to Know”.
See you at the showwwwwwwww!
Today’s song is dedicated to my best friend and soon to be husband. This song takes me back to 2005 when we flew to New York City just to see this band play. And even though their record hadn’t been released, we knew every word to every song because we had illegally stolen it on Oink (A bitTorent site that I was addicted to from 2004-2007). But to be fair, we have purchased 2 vinyl copies over the years. The day after the concert there was a blizzard in NYC and we were stranded in the city, but we snuck out to the MOMA and admired the sculpture garden which was covered in piles of heavy snow. It was the weekend we fell in love.
Dearest Danny I can’t wait for all of our adventures!
Have you seen our episode on Cory Branan? We felt pretty spoiled sitting in the basement of the Hi-Dive in Denver listening to Cory sing “Survivor Blues”. Can not believe it was already a year ago. It was just his voice and guitar, absolutely beautiful. Here’s the recording of the song below and then listen to him sing the song in our episode. They definitely sound different. Fun to hear both versions.

I just discovered this song on Spotify and LOVE it. It’s called “Always Spring” by I’m From Barcelona. Who cares if it’s actually fall. Their music is upbeat and makes me want to dance in fast motion. Their bio page also has the best photos of members in a band ever, I counted 29 people!!! I’m From Barcelona, please take this post as a kind request to visit the U.S. and more specifically Colorado on your next tour… and let us interview you.
We love DeVotcha! Not only are they based out of Denver but they were the soundtrack to one of my favorite films, Little Miss Sunshine. Maybe this is too much info but my husband and I actually watched part of the movie at the hospital before our son was born. It’s just a clever movie with an addicting soundtrack.
Devotchka is Russian for “girl”. They had an interesting start as a backing band for burlesque shows. In their early years DeVotchKa also toured with burlesque performer and model Dita von Teese. I’m sure they have a ton of stories to tell. They’re performing this Halloween at the Gothic Theatre in Denver. Who’s going?!
Good morning! Here’s a song to start your week, “I Think I’m Falling in Love” by “Harper Blynn. Like every good song does, it creates powerful associations with moments in our lives. This song reminds me of when I documented Techstars in a series called The Founders. With permission their music was featured in our web series. I’m sure I will hear their music someday soon in a feature film in the threatre! You can buy the track here. I also love this song because it’s by some extremely awesome & talented guys from PA! We went to school together in the very early days and I’m so happy for them. They’re touring throughout the rest of October, check them out and give them a hug for us.
How long has it been since you’ve heard this 1983 classic by THE THE!!?? Since my older sister is getting married 1 week from today, I’ve deemed this her theme song for the week!!
Also, this song came up in a conversation last night while discussing the 1995 classic movie EMPIRE RECORDS. This song was featured in this movie, and I remember listening to it on my Empire Records soundtrack (nerd alert!). I will admit that I have watched Empire Records in recent years and been slightly bummed that it didn’t live up to it’s 9th grade greatness. But this song by THE THE still stands up 30 years after it was released! Oh 80′s pop music, I heart you.
best maid of honor ever,
