Fingers of the Sun New EP "3" now available

Jun 7

"3," the brand-new EP from Denver's Fingers of the Sun opens, "On the day that you were born the sky was bright and fiery orange..." and it's immediately apparent that this will be a much different affair than their previous effort, the nocturnal-themed "Sleepy EP." The 5 songs on the appropriately titled third release all brim with sunshine, bouncing playfully between gleeful psychedelia, Elephant-6-esque arrangements, and garage rock. It's a sound well-suited to the aesthetic of Burger Records, who are releasing the collection on cassette tape.

Colfax Speed Queen Release New Video for Bathtub Crank

Jun 6

A month or so ago we shared the video for "Fiends in the Night," from Colfax Speed Queen's upcoming full-length release, Satisfaction Intended. Now comes the second video from the album for the song "Bathtub Crank." The two videos similarly re-appropriate old black-and-white horror films, but this new video definitely takes on a more sinister vibe.

Check it out below.

Brass Tree Fundraising Residency at Lost Lake

May 23

A little over a month ago Brass Tree Sessions, Denver's favorite insane-house-show-turned-internet-series, filmed what was to be the final episode at their Irvington Street location. While that damn-near-iconic space played a huge role in the success and vibe of the show, the trio of Tyler Campbell, Ben Mund, and Leighton Peterson are not letting the move get them down. Instead, they're headed full-bore into Brass Tree version 2.0.

Too Much Fun, the Best of April

May 22

On the heels of last week's announcement of the digital release and vinyl pre-sale of the Fine Gentleman's Club's debut record comes a new collection from the comedy group. "The Best of April" was recorded by sound engineer Oliver Howard at "Too much Fun," where every Wednesday night the Fine Gents show fans at the Deerpile how the comedy sausage is made - introducing local and touring comedians, experimenting with new material, and engaging in outright hooliganry.

Colfax Speed Queen New Video/show at the Lion's Lair This Weekend

May 2

Colfax Speed Queen's upcoming debut full-length, "Satisfaction Intended,"isn't due until late June, but for now you can check out the video for set-crushing shoutalong “Fiends in the Night.” The video shows appropriately aged B-Roll film of triangle-boob-bikinied coeds and their small-shorted suitors cutting loose around a bonfire until they are attacked by – what else – a fiend in the night.
