Review: TMULE Releases New Alt-Folk Solo EP, 'Wordless Lullabies'

By: Norman Hittle

Singer and guitar player for the alt-country/rock band The Longest Day of the Year, TMULE is set to release his first solo EP since 2006 this month. The Ft. Collins, CO alt-folk/singer-songwriter will be releasing a folk-rock EP of four new songs called Wordless Lullabies, alongside his first book of poetry, Book of Dawn / I, the Iceberg.

TMULE.

TMULE.

Yet, alternative folk doesn’t sum up the full experience of this EP. With nods to Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, and George Harrison, TMULE's songs are soulful and heart-wrenching with their fingers reaching into blues and Americana. 

Raised in suburban Detroit with an alcoholic father, teenage TMULE would plug in his guitar and embrace the catharsis of singing his lungs out to “Release” by Pearl Jam. That feeling drew him to songwriting early in life. Worldless Lullabies and Book of Dawn / I, The Iceberg examine struggles through his father’s substance abuse, the weight of co-dependence, emotional abandonment, and the fortitude of love. The complications of growing up affected by alcoholism is a theme of many TMULE songs, but this package is the culmination of years of biographical writing; stories of hungry ghosts, fear, love and reconciliation to bring solace to those struggling in their own darkness, whatever it may be.

The EP’s dark aesthetic is the shining of a spotlight through his past while the poetry book explores the wide range of emotions surrounding dependence issues and it's complicated effect on personal relationships.

Check out TMULE's EP release show this Friday, May 26th at 730 PM at Downtown Artery in Fort Collins. Tickets here. TMule will also have a CD/Poetry Book release Tuesday, June 6th at 6PM at Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe in Boulder.

'Wordless Lullabies' EP credits: Produced by Justin Roth of Fort Collins. Guest musicians Mark Lavengood (Lindsay Lou & the Flatbelly’s), Ben Zito and Dan Rickabus (The Crane Wives), and Paul Maley (Equally Challenged). Mastered by Ian Gorman of Kalamazoo’s La Luna Recording & Sound.

Review: Chess at Breakfast's 'The Gutshalls'

By: Austin Michon

Somewhere between ambient, crawling ballads, and full force grunge rock, Fort Collins’ own Chess at Breakfast have carved themselves a niche in the alternative rock genre with their debut EP, The Gutshalls.

Listen to Chess at Breakfast’s The Gutshalls:

Mixing slow psychedelic sounds with cranked distortion, simple grooves, catchy riffs, and full-out sonic onslaught, Caleb McFadden, Justin Daggett, and Mike Davis intermingle each instrument into one cohesive unit. While some songs are reminiscent of a grungy, shoegaze style, others are a more modern indie rock experience, with each of the five songs seemingly highlighting a strength or focal point of the group.

In Hindsight,” a track I could see floating through a Buffy the Vampire Slayer intro, instantly transports you to the sounds of the 1990s, while “Andesite” takes you through a trippy, Pink Floydian sonic landscape, punctuated with moments of raw emotion and rock. “415” provides an almost jazz-esque groove which gives way to the trio’s characteristic heavier rock sound.

Chess at Breakfast.

Chess at Breakfast.

Somewhere between Modest Mouse, The Dear Hunter, and The Smashing Pumpkins, Chess at Breakfast have created unique, fun altrock that I hope to hear much more of. Be sure to catch them at Fort Collins’ Downtown Artery this Friday, April 7th with Race to Neptune and Turvy Organ. And keep up with Chess at Breakfast here.

One Flew West Talk About Their New Lineup & Sound With Us

By: Austin Michon

“Life is a pain in the ass, and music is a way to escape the daily grind. We just want to have a good time and let loose, and we just want to share that experience with other people.”

Longmont’s One Flew West have recently been recording music and planning their latest single release parties for the two tunes I recently reviewed on BolderBeat. Post-review, I got to ask the band some questions about their history and influences, which include, “Kraftwerk, Nickelback, and Smash Mouth. Duh.”

One Flew West.

One Flew West.

Formed in 2010, the guys have been, in some form or another, making music for a very long time. Said the band, “David and Jonah have known each other since 1st grade, and started playing music together in middle school. We sucked really bad. Pretty much nothing but Ramones and AC/DC covers that sounded like a flock of ducks getting run over by a cement truck.”

But OFW has come quite a ways since then.

“We're working with a new lineup, and our instrumentation has changed a bit.” the group told me regarding their two newest singles, which they plan to release with an EP this fall. “As we've gotten older, we've learned how to actually write, produce, and record music. We're really looking forward to this next EP because we'll be entering the studio with the largest skill set we've had since the band's formation.”

The band has gone through some lineup changes as of late, with the departure of guitarist/trumpeter/cowbell extraordinaire Joe Pineda, and the addition of new bassist Dawson Fry.

“We're a four member band now, and there are some restraints with that setup. However, having less people means we're tighter as a band than we've ever been before. Dawson is an outrageously good bass player, and we can't wait for people to see him live!” said frontman Linden Jackson.

And when it comes to their live setup with the new lineup, the band told us, “We're adjusting our sound to fit the new lineup, and we've spent a lot of time putting together a new live show with new music. Our old music is still a big part of our show, so old fans will still enjoy the direction we're heading in.”

Catch OFW for a taste of the new and a reminder of the old at their back-to-back single release shows this weekend at The Lost Lake on March 3rd and Downtown Artery on March 4th. Keep up with One Flew West on their Facebook.

Alternative Punk Rock Group American Blackout Debut 'Yeah So What' EP

By: Jura Daubenspeck

The gifts just keep on coming this holiday season with today’s release of the newest 'Yeah So What' EP by alternative punk rock group American Blackout. Hailing from Fort Collins, CO, members Craig Miller (vocals/guitar), Damian Schoenecke (guitar), Ross Dougherty (bass) and Gus Mircos (drums) have been anticipating this release for almost a year. Needless to say, the band is excited for today’s debut, so we sat down with frontman Craig Miller to get the scoop on American Black’s new music and more. Here’s our chat:

The 'Yeah So What' EP is your third and final release of 2016. How long have you guys been working on this for?

For a while now. We released our first single “Pants on Fire” last January, and just released “Shots Fired” in September, so [the whole EP] has been about one year in the works. We recorded all five tracks at The Spot Studios, recording two at a time, then recording one last song to finish it up. Lately we’ve been getting it all packaged, mastered, and ready for release.

There’s been quite a bit of hype leading up to this release, with little sneak previews, bundles, and free giveaways. How have people reacted so far?

Everyone seems pretty excited about it. We’ve received really good reviews on the singles. We just previewed our title track, “Yeah So What” yesterday, which is our favorite song to play live. It’s upbeat and high energy, which is perfect because we get down at our live shows.

What can fans expect from this new EP? What kinds of sounds and influences are embedded in it? Any themes?

What I like most about it is that it’s a little bit of a deviation from our last EP, Summer’s Gone. It’s a much more matured sound and a lot less “poppy.” The last EP focused a lot more on relationships, whereas Yeah So What is more raw and edgy, especially “Shots Fired.” Our lyrics have matured and our sound is a bit more gritty. As always, we’ve got a clean, crisply produced sound from working at The Spot Studios, but [this new release] just ended up being more energetic rock’n’roll versus pop. We like the direction it’s going in.

Listen to American Blackout's new Yeah So What EP:

Are there any special guest features on this release?

No guest features. One major difference is that this EP was recorded with our old drummer Jason LaBella. We have a new drummer now, Gus Mircos, who will be playing at the EP release show with us. We’re grateful to have worked with Jason, and are excited to have Gus with us now.

What was the creative process behind this release? Any particular reason why you’re aiming for an end of year release VS a new year release?

An end of the year release was just how it ended up happening with the availability and materials. Our last full-length release was in January 2015, so we are due for another one. Also, December is a great time to go out, given the holidays. Regarding our creative process, we’ve been writing a lot, and have been picky about what songs we wanted to record and what songs we wanted to included. We’ve been much more selective, starting with a basic idea, gathering new ideas, and continuing that effort until those ideas materialize into a song.

Will there be a tour to accompany this release? Any holiday pit stops you plan to make?

Our EP Release Party is this Saturday, December 17th at Downtown Artery. Then we’ve got a series of shows in late January, including a show at The Moxi Theater. We plan to hit the road in March 2017, working our way through the Southwest, California, and Nevada.

Finally, as an alternative punk band in Colorado, where do you most find your niche?

We’ve been able to make a lot of friends in different genres of music. We love playing with Wiredogs, who will also be playing at our EP Release Party this Friday along with I Am The Owl. We like playing with those guys quite a bit. We met so many different bands through the SpokesBUZZ program and we have played with many other genres, like the Gasoline Lollipops, who are more bluegrass/folk. We like to mix it up and tailor our sets to the other bands’ styles. That’s what’s great about the Colorado music scene: everyone likes to work together, meet new people, and experience new styles of music.

Keep in touch with American Blackout via their Facebook, Instagram, and website. And be sure to grab your tickets to their EP Release Party this Saturday, December 17th!

Grant Farm and Dead Winter Carpenters' Night of Americana at The Fox This Thursday

By: Claire Woodcock

Boulder’s own cosmic-Americana band Grant Farm will be playing a show for the working people this Thursday, July 7th, at The Fox Theatre.

Grant Farm. 

Grant Farm. 

Vocalist and National Flatpicking Guitar Champion Tyler Grant founded the free-spirited, growing force that is Grant Farm in 2009. Adrian “Ace” Engfer (bass and vocals), Sean “Magic” Macaulay (drums) and Kevin “Money” McHugh (keys and vocals) join Grant “The Champ” in the band’s rolling roots rock sound. In 2014, Colorado Public Radio deemed the Grant Farm players as “some of the ablest musicians not only in the state of Colorado, but in the nation.”

A scene from Grant Farm's "Fill Your Cup" music video. 

A scene from Grant Farm's "Fill Your Cup" music video. 

Grant Farm is celebrating its latest LP release, Kiss The Ground, which they describe as an “ode to the working people” and the archetype famously described by John Lennon. The band’s latest work follows a 2012 self-titled debut and 2014’s Plowin’ Time, which made it to #2 on the JamBand Radio Charts. Album highlights include “Get In Line,” which discusses the high price we pay for the life we want and “Fill Your Cup,” a call to make the most of life. Maybe you’ve caught Grant Farm’s new video for that track:

This Americana jam band has a lot going for them filmwise as well. The group released Meeting on the Mountain (2014), a collaborative EP with Fruition, a string-centric blues rock quintet from Portland. From there, the concept grew into a collaborative live broadcast experience, Meeting on the Mountain LIVE. The webcast streams live from The Downtown Artery in Fort Collins, CO and is filmed and broadcast by Fort Collins-based tech outfit Hyphytek. The webcast concert series features Grant Farm as the houseband, and includes performances and interviews with musical guests, hosted by Tyler Grant. Keep up with their ongoing broadcast schedule here.

Dead Winter Carpenters.

The California-based Dead Winter Carpenters will join Grant Farm on Thursday night’s ticket, along with Nederland bluegrass quartet Caribou Mountain Collective. The whole shebang is presented by my other favorite publication, Boulder Weekly.

Get your tickets here, and I’ll see you there!

Slow Caves: Fastly Approaching Greatness with New Release "Desert Minded"

By: Zach Dahmen

Fort Collins' Slow Caves are majorly on the come up.

The new EP from Slow Caves has arrived and so has this band! The Fort Collins-based group has been playing the Front Range since 2014. Previous releases showcased a young band with a hard edge. The new EP takes their surf rock sound and adds dreamy vocals and a maturity in songwriting, but this is by no means a tame record. Comparisons can be made, but Slow Caves is a band making their mark in a saturated scene with a sound all their own.

Desert Minded is the name of the four song release, produced by the band themselves and Corey Coffman at the latter’s home studio. It’s a treasure of expanses with one song flowing into the next with ease. The four piece have hit their stride sliding through these songs.

The first song, “2 Hrs!”, is an immediately catchy synth-driven smile on your face. This is an unabashed indie pop song and it works. The vocal harmonies strike all of the right chords; if this track isn’t in your summer playlist, you're doing summer wrong.

“Glares” is a slow burner of pure, surf rock bliss. From the first guitar strums, the song’s light touches and call-back chorus will have you singing out loud.

“Desert Minded”, the EP’s title track, has its roots in the beach with a surf guitar riff running through the song. It’s feels like a beautiful dream like state, and by the time the chorus hits, you are hooked.  

“Son 15" is the most straightforward indie rock song on the EP. Pulsing with an aggressive guitar and a driving beat, this song will have you bobbing your head long after it’s over.

All of these songs could be strong contenders for a great single. The strength of Slow Caves’ writing hooks and song craftsmanship is in full display on this release. With this EP, Slow Caves have cemented themselves as one of the best bands the Front Range has to offer. Expect to be seeing big things from this four-piece in the coming months. Make sure to catch them next at The Downtown Artery in Fort Collins this Saturday, May 28th. Though their digital release of “Desert Minded” has been delayed for what they tell us are “good reasons; cool reasons”, they will have physical copies of the EP available at the show. Head out and keep up with Slow Caves here.

Denver's Meeting House: The Blues Rock Band Who Is So Much More Than Just Their Age

By: Hannah Oreskovich

Alt-blues rock band Meeting House are a Denver-based trio comprised of Ryan Rundles, Ethan Cowell, and Nick Lyon. At first glance, you might think they’re just another blues band kickin’ around the Rockies. They’ve got the influences many bands in their genre invoke: The White Stripes, The Black Keys, and Kings of Leon. But these three dudes are definitely cooler than your average local act. Why? Because in their short time together, they’ve already played The Oriental Theater, the Deer Pile, and the Downtown Artery... and these guys are still in highschool. That caught our attention, so we reached out to the trio to talk about how they came together, what it’s been like trying to score sweet gigs as an underage band, and what their plans are for the year. Check out our chat with Meeting House’s Ethan Cowell:

First things first- how did the three of you get together?

We all live on the same street. I had known Ryan since middle school without even realizing that we live on the same block. We started jamming and really wanted to start an official band. Then we met Nick, who actually didn’t know how to play the drums, but had an interest in learning them. So we let him beat the hell out of an old set Ryan had until he was good enough to fake it.

Hahaha that’s awesome! Where’d the name come from?

The name of the street we live on is Columbine. We found that another name for the Columbine flower is “Meeting House”. So we went with that.

Denver's Meeting House.

Denver's Meeting House.

Nice. Talk to us about your experience so far in the Denver music scene- what have you most loved and what has been a challenge for you?

We love that Denver is this melting pot of music! There are so many genres coming out of this town! However we have had a hard time getting into this scene because we’re so young that people don’t take us seriously. We try to utilize as many DIY venues as possible because when some large venues see that we’re under 21, they won’t give us the time of day.

That’s tough. But we’ve noticed that you guys have still managed to play some sweet mid-level venues with some really well known acts, including My Body Sings Electric and your upcoming gig with Shatterproof at Hodi’s Half Note in May. That’s impressive. How long have you been playing together?

A little over a year now.

Meeting House at the Downtown Artery in Fort Collins.

Meeting House at the Downtown Artery in Fort Collins.

Solid! So we know you just dropped your self-titled EP. Where was that recorded and who produced it?

We recorded it at home. Oliver Mueller (Slow Caves) came over with all of his mics and amps and we had the studio brought to us! Oliver produced and mastered everything.

Those are some great guys to have supporting you. What are your plans for the rest of the year?

At this exact moment, we’re just trying to be taken seriously as a band. We really want the Colorado music scene to view us as heavy-hitters, and not just some high school band.

Something tells us they’ll come around very soon dudes.
