Thanks folk folks in England...
  • They start somewhere in the West flavoured with 100% proof Americana spirit and then they drift off into space. They mix dollops of ambience (a la Eno) with more prosaic things. ‘A Door’ seems to have Leonard Cohen on a solo space walk - Houston we have progress.
  • ‘Sunshine’ shimmers in a sea of solar energy much like the Danny Boyle film of the same name, cosmic keyboard winds buffeting a simple guitar melody that drifts blissfully to destruction. Other heavenly bodies are present on ‘Sun and Moon’ and here orbiting space junk emits an orchestra of squelches and glitches over an earthbound melody. If you want to think of early Calexico records re-imagined by Wall-E then you might get somewhere close to where these two Colorado based vaquero’s are coming from. The music exists partially obscured by melting mirages that add a skein of mystery over a firm base of Americana. In a word, intriguing.

REVIEW OF ((O))...

"The trilogy has been an eye opening experience for me so far as, for one, I never expected something like this to come to my attention via Connexion Bizarre, and secondly, me liking anything even vaguely country never even crossed my mind."

--"Every piece seems like it has a warm, shimmering halo of synth bliss around it, which provides a very effective soft-focus counterbalance to Sampson's gritty heartbreak."
--"Sampson is anything but mopey.  In fact, he's a very charismatic, powerful, and articulate vocalist.  He's a damn good songwriter too, as each of the eight pieces here is simple, direct, and memorably hooky." 
--"It is highly improbable that this band will be able to remain a secret if this EP gets heard."
--"I like this a lot."   Anthony D'Amico

Truly honored and overwhelmed to hear Tyler Potts and Roger Green do a cover of "Ears Burn" by Wentworth Kersey yesterday at the UMS. Both these artists have influenced my career/sound perhaps more than anyone else in Denver. Check out their touching performance below.
