The Still City's last show this Saturday + New EP.

It's both a sad and happy weekend in the Denver music scene. The Still City, a bocumast favorite, is calling it quits. That's really sad. But there is some good news to come with it. Lead singer Brian Knab is moving to Austin to get a Ph.D. Austin is the fucking bomb. And Ph.D's are rad. So those are some good things. But they also have a new EP for us to remember them by. Listen to samples of it here and you can get it at their last fucking show ever this saturday at Hi-Dive. More info here.

Anyways, we're really gonna miss these guys. They are all terrific musicians and terrific people. And who knows, maybe when Brian comes to visit, which he fucking better, they'll play a show for shits and giggles. Goodbye The Still City.

to Cy:

The recent passing of Cy Twombly has prompted me to write this. While we focus on music and mostly the music we create, I'd like to take a moment and bring to light some of the brilliance of Cy. His work fullfilled art world empties. It was a gathering of ideas, a laugh, a cry, and a poke. It was brilliant, crass, delightful, and proposterous. The work of Cy Twombly has not only inspired me in my own life as an artist, but my life as a musician. I will continue to find joy in his work, especially the most simplistic pieces, which is where I felt he excelled.

I remember my first visit to the MoMA (I saw two of the pieces featured below). Cy had two large rooms to himself. In one room were the giant chalkboard-like paintings...obvious and powerful upon first glance. Then after a while they become more constrictive, leaving the viewer gazing back upon their memories...of childhood, or more recent experiences, clashes with culture, understanding, or ambivalence. Each piece somewhat improvisational, like free jazz on a canvas. I was enthralled and beyond inspired. I will forever be. Thanks Cy!

Slothpop in the T: A show review!

To some of those miscellaneous do-gooders
Last week I visited a far off land called Tulsa, OK. The sounds and visions enjoyed by my ears there are rarely perculiar, but this time I was more attentive. I took myself out for the evening along with some family and new friends. We played cop watching games, marco pollo, and spotted hundreds of sex hungry brain clouds out on the town. Then we ventured into the Sound Pony. A slightly pretentious, well-intentioned establishment with live music nearly every night of the week. My ears perked as sounds surrounded them briefly by a group that goes by Slothpop. Not the best name, but certainly memorable as was their performance.

Beats dripped down from the ceiling creating melted cages around each listener. The voices popped bubbles growing off mossy guitar synth rock. Simplistic song structure taking unexpected turns. Slothpop is female lead vocals driving a talented group of musicians. Many in the crowd took pause to hear them out when nothing else in their evening struck their fragile minds. My pleasantries divided upon the night and I was forced to flee, but in the moments I saw them, I was overjoyed to witness this in my homeland, where my family live, where the buffalo roam, and where the sloths pop.

Slothpop is performing at Moe's BBQ in Denver on July 7 & The Laughing Goat in Boulder on July 8.

Get their newest LP if you dare to treat yourself with respect.
