Super slash

Hybrid supergroup Garage A Trois brings eclectic styles to Boulder

By Matt Conner
If you’ve been waiting to see jazz/ funk/rock group Garage A Trois in concert, you’ll have to forgive the quartet for being so busy. After all, each member is spinning multiple plates, which is why they’re so popular in the first place. Yet Skerik wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sweet sounds of Sweden

Lykke Li’s bizarre pop will have you dreaming of psychedelic windmills

By Matt Conner
There’s nothing that compares to Scandinavian pop. Whether it’s a deep appreciation of the arts, the stunning landscape all around or the harsh winter season that forces songwriters inside to write for much of the year, the region produces some of the most beautiful and weirdest pop albums year after year.

Looking back to look ahead

Blitzen Trapper taps the nostalgic music of their youth for new album

By Matt Conner
Whether Eric Earley is writing about it or talking about it, any discussion of the music he makes for Blitzen Trapper presents an uneasy exercise.
