Standby: Frankie & the Heartstrings

Feeling bummed to be back at work/school after a long holiday away? Perhaps a little indie pop from Frankie & the Heartstrings will be just the thing to cheer you up. It worked for me this morning, well Frankie PLUS my giant cup of hot chocolate from 7-11. Did you know that you can get a giant hot chocolate from 7-11 for like $1.25? It’s ace.

To learn more about these Sunderland lads, and listen to tracks from their debut record go HERE.

Happy New Year Window Seat Friends!



Dance Card: Girls “Honey Bunny”

“Honey Bunny” is the most upbeat and buoyant track off of the new Girls record Father, Son, Holy Ghost. And despite the self deprecating lyrics, this song is a danceable feast, don’t you agree? I wonder what lead singer Christopher Owens is doing for the holidays. Do you think he’ll make a nice holiday ham and read Christmas stories to his nieces and nephews?

We shot this dance card about 2 months ago, before the snow crept in and took over the city. It’s shot right outside the Performing Arts Center in Denver. Is it just me or is the grass ridiculously green. How many tickets to the LION KING musical did they have to sell to pay for that pristine lawn?

Dance cards are for lovers,



The Window Seat Trailer No.2

We’ve had so much fun over the last couple of months interviewing new bands, going to shows and staging dance parties in random and sometimes sketchy areas of Denver….so we thought it was time to make another trailer to help spread the word about The Window Seat. We’ve also taken your advice and switched the website to be more reader friendly, and not as confusing. It’s a very simple site, and we are continuing to work on it and make it better. Any feedback is much appreciated, so email us or tweet us!

More than anything, we just want to thank everybody who’s been spreading the word and helping us with all the elements that go into a web series. The bands, the labels, the venues and all of our friends–you guys have made The Window Seat possible! So thank you.

We hope 2012 brings many more fun interviews, segments and dance parties.

Band Episode: Mates of State

I remember the first time I heard Mates of State. They were one of those bands that I fell for immediately. I could sing (horribly) along with them at the top of my lungs. I could put their songs on mixtapes for friends, family and crushes. They are like the ultimate mixtape band, they manage to find a way to appear on the all of my greatest mixtape masterpieces. Mates of State have given thousands of people (including me) a chance to tell someone via mixtape: “I like you crazy” or “It’s not the same without you and I” or “What are your weaknesses? I won’t pass you by.”

Despite the lyrics I just mentioned, Mates of State are more than just sweet pop songs, in fact their performances have more fight and energy than a mosh pit at a Mastodan concert. What’s even cooler, is that Kori and Jason are some of the kindest, most down to earth people we’ve met since starting The Window Seat.

To buy their records and see their show dates go HERE. We can’t think of a better gift to give/receive this holiday season than a Mates of State LP. Especially the new record Mountaintops, it’s ace.

Dance Card: Weekend “Coma Summer”

Very excited that Weekend’s debut Record is out this month. You can buy it online, listen to it on Spotify or be legit and buy the LP from Slumberland Records.

This noise rock trio reminds me of early Jesus and Mary Chain, Psychocandy mixed with My Bloody Valentine and Joy Division. It’s somehow romantic but completely bleak, kind of like the month of November. Like that Sunday in November when you were bored and walked to the Science Building to dance it out and then head home to make apple cider.

Dance Card: The Drums “Forever and Ever, Amen”

This is the fist Dance Card we ever did. Downtown Denver Library, I love you. Sorry I still have Patti Smiths Autobiography checked out. I will return it….eventually. I mean if you let dancing like this happen in your library, how strict are you on paying fines?


Band Episode: Mountain Man

What a lovely afternoon with these girls.
