We are so incredibly excited to announce that we have just added sublime dream-pop-smiths Distant Correspondent to our collective! Founded by David Obuchowski of Goes Cube, the band also features critically acclaimed solo artist Edith Frost, Emily Gray of the legendary and influential English post-rock band, Meanwhile Back In Communist Russia, and drummer/multi-instrumentalist Michael Lengel.
Wire Faces recently visted the OpenAir studio for a live performance and interview. Check out three videos from the session below:
Oh man, are we excited to announce this one! The debut EP from Denver's Shady Elders, No Favors, is now available for purchase in our webstore. Buoyed by the strong songwriting and vocal presence of frontwoman Britt Rodemich, this five-song set is a powerful opening salvo from such a young band that has already garnered some critical praise.
A few weeks ago we announced that we would be sharing a showcase at SXSW with The Outfit, a band that has long been a stand-out in the Denver music scene. Well now we couldn't be more pleased to announce that the band will also be joining the Hot Congress Collective. They've also just released a new single, Caesar, which is now available for download at the Outfit's Bandcamp page.
In addition to the bands playing our first ever SXSW showcase, The Blue Rider is also headed down to Austin to play a couple shows. Here's where you can catch them:
