Lysergic settings

The Black Angels are on the unexplored sonic frontier

By David Accomazzo
There’s a nostalgic element to the term “psych-rock” that harkens back to the tie-dyed, patchouli-scented dorm rooms that spun the records of The Doors, Jefferson Airplane and Velvet Underground. Calling something “psychedelic” invokes a sort of free-love, tripped-out aesthetic that recalls the ’60s and the pioneering days of rock ’n’ roll.

What makes The Egg roll?

Ned Scott on twins, rhythm and the joys of live music

By Dave Kirby
We caught Ned Scott, keyboardist and one of The Egg’s founding twin brothers, during a quiet evening a couple of weeks ago at home in his Notting Hill flat, just as he was about to step away to prepare (honestly) a cup of tea.

The Yawpers: Going through changes

Frontman Nate Cook on upcoming album, lineup changes and why the group is no longer a 'Boulder band'

By David Accomazzo
A slew of changes has rocked Nate Cook’s world this past year. His band, The Yawpers — rock ’n’ roll with a country twinge, starring two acoustic guitars and a drum set — is letting their record deal with Boulder label Adventure Records expire, and the band has leapt over to Colorado SpokesBUZZ, becoming the first non-Fort Collins band to sign with the FoCo-based nonprofit/label.

Home on the Flatirons

West Water Outlaws savor the hometown experience

By David Accomazzo
West Water Outlaws had a plan heading into this year’s South By Southwest. Before arriving in Austin, the band played a slew of tour dates with the aim of honing its chops prior to the big stage at SXSW. The four band members slogged through shows of varying quality, sometimes just playing for the bartender, sometimes drawing a crowd.

Joe Bonamassa: Blues workhorse

The music never stops for New York bluesman

By Alan Sculley
Joe Bonamassa’s recently released concert CD, Beacon Theatre: Live From New York, isn’t advertised as a homecoming show, but in a very real sense, it was a return to his beginnings.

Black Mountain don’t surf

Canadian psych-rock band lands on an unlikely soundtrack

By Dave Kirby
Soundtrack albums are usually little more than cheerfully anachronistic artifacts of the unholy alliance between Big Film and Big Music — the major labels used to use them as a roll-of-the-dice jet pack for their prospect acts, hoping that a box-office smash would help launch their prospect band’s fortunes, and for the bands it was usually a safe bet.

By Peter Alexander
If you are a fan of West African Highlife, that most infectious of world music styles, you could travel to Accra, Lagos or Yaounde. Or you could walk over to Grusin Music Hall on the University of Colorado Boulder campus.
