The Raven and the Writing Desk returned to the CPR Performance Studio last week at the conclusion of a spring tour that saw the Denver band perform across the western U.S.

The band has a new sound since its visit in 2013: the marimba and violin players have departed and the remaining quartet has veered into dream-pop territory with the new EP "Some Get Started."

They spoke with Aaron 'Loki' Johnson about the band's new direction, some recent touring experiences and the answer to the eternal question: "How is a raven like a writing desk?"

Stream the session above.

Songs performed:

  • "When We Go"
  • "Valkyrie \ Running Medley"
  • "Constellations"
