Band Episode: Chimney Choir

The Window Seat :: Chimney Choir from The Window Seat on Vimeo.

One lovely Sunday morning Megan and I ventured to the amazing Museum of Nature and Science for a field trip with local favorite’s Chimney Choir. This group of magical multi-instrumentalists treated us to a morning serenade on the roof of the museum. They played a song from their latest album Compass, an album made up of a multitude of instruments and harmonies. I highly recommend you take a listen here.

Local friends, please go see them next Friday at Northwest Denver Folk Festival next Friday May 16th at the Oriental. AND I just heard the BEST NEWS EVER—they are working with local dance company Wonderbound to write a full-length ballet that will premiere in April 2015. Two of favorite things in the world ballet and local music—yes please I’ll take a ticket to every performance!!

Chimney Choir we heart you.

Throwback Thursday: Band Interview with Hey Marseilles

The Window Seat :: Hey Marseilles from The Window Seat on Vimeo.

The song “Heart Beats” by Hey Marseilles came on while my iPod was shuffling along last night. It was so good, instead of pulling into my driveway I made loops around my neighborhood so I could hear through twice through before calling it a night. Any song that good deserves a throwback thursday post.

What a fun evening it was hiding out in that bookstore making this video. I hope you enjoy it.

heart,

christy & megan

Survivor Blues

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.

Band Episode: Hey Marseilles

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.

Hey Marseilles Trailer

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!

Band Episode: Oak Creek Band

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.

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.
