Down Time released its debut EP, "Good Luck!," last year. The record features five lo-fi indie pop songs that the group itself describes as "grandma jams." The Denver indie rock band has since expanded from a trio to a five-piece and is at work on new material. Down Time stopped into the CPR Performance Studio before a concert at Larimer Lounge. The band played four songs and spoke with Bruce Trujillo about expanding its sound with new members, working on a full-length album and filming a concert at Denver's Alamo Drafthouse movie theater.
