From desert soirees to swanksville

Woodsman reveals the forest for the trees

By P.J. Nutting
To our great disappointment, Denver post-rock group Woodsman aren’t whittling sticks in a log cabin when Boulder Weekly reaches guitarist Trevor Peterson by phone. At the first stop of their current tour, the group finds themselves in the rather plush Hotel Congress in Tuscon, Ariz., a combination hotel/club that Peterson describes on Twitter as “swanksville.”

REVIEW and SLIDESHOW: Foster The People at the Bluebird Theater June 8

By P.J. Nutting
I first heard Foster The People’s buzz-building debut track “Pumped Up Kicks” last year on a playlist of indie summer jams, and now they’re in Denver with a sold-out venue and an entire album in support. Torches is substantial and carries the group’s style across the sunny nine-song release. Not to mention it’s great summer music.

Getting on the Dechen Hawk plan

Meet a major player in Boulder’s music scene

By P.J. Nutting
Born into a Shambhala Buddhist community and raised with that outlook, his brand of soul music mirrors the values that make him an easily accessible personality: His fans are just as important as his band; life thrives beyond lines of self-preservation; the answer is never further than yourself.

SLIDESHOW AND REVIEW: Orgone at the Fox Theatre

By P.J. Nutting
L.A. funk band Orgone delivered a surprising, tight and, unfortunately, under-appreciated performance at the Fox Theatre Tuesday night. The realization came to me later that this was a Tuesday night during summer break; though the rowdy student crowd was nowhere in sight tonight, the post-college turnout seemed revel in having the place to themselves. Honestly, it was awesome.

REVIEW: Atmosphere at the Fox Theatre

By P.J. Nutting
Atmosphere’s Slug took the stage looking solid and sounding solid, the confidence of a 39-year-old MC in a town that loves him as tangible as the sweaty shoulders the hundreds of fans packed like sardines in every corner of the Fox. Any musician approaching their 40s has a scrutinizing lens focused on their relevancy and energy, and rappers are easily the slowest targets. But if you heard anyone in Boulder today talking about how Atmosphere has lost it, you’ve found a bitter person who didn’t get a ticket to last night’s show at the Fox Theatre.

Head in the clouds

Another day in the life of Atmosphere

By P.J. Nutting
When you combine the prestige of being a headlining MC, the ego of a smartass working stiff, a career that has only grown over two decades and a show at the Fox that immediately sold out months in advance, one might assume that Sean Daley (aka Slug), the voice of hip-hop duo Atmosphere,.

Review: A-Trak at the Gothic Theatre, May 9

By P.J. Nutting
It’s hard to talk about A-Trak without beginning with the guy’s resume. It really says everything necessary — starting at the top, you have to mention that Kanye West has trusted him as a touring DJ for years, and even gave his two cents on the design for this tour’s stage decor. A-Trak also runs the prolific dance label Fool’s Gold Records and commands a small army of dance music celebrities. And last but not least, he won a DMC Championship (the premiere international turntable competition) at a mere 15 years old.

Being honest with yourself

Macklemore brings introspective raps to Boulder

By P.J. Nutting
Though the album created short-term success and fame was imminent, the MC began to stray from his own mindful advice and found himself writing songs about staying in the moment without a sense of selfreality. His personal drug and alcohol use left the ensuing years after Language.

Terrifying tower of electronic tones

Simon Posford and Shpongletron want to blow your mind

By P.J. Nutting
'Someone could say, 'What's it like to be on acid?' And to confer that experience into language, I think it's an extremely poor medium,' Posford says. 'It's like having a vocabulary of five words to describe it. Music provides the extra keys on the typewriter you need to express the whole experience.'
