Slow Caves release their debut album, "Falling," this week. The Fort Collins indie rock band has been a presence in the Colorado music scene for several years and they represented the Centennial state last week at the SXSW music festival in Austin. Before that trip to Texas, we welcomed them back into our studio for the first time since 2017. Slow Caves played three stripped-down versions of songs from "Falling." The band members also spoke with Alisha Sweeney about recording the album in Austin and signing to the Cincinnati indie label Old Flame Records.

Definitely, Maybe is a new Denver band from songwriting partners Carmine Gabbianelli and Zachary Antonio, formerly of indie rock group ScaTTer GaTHer. Last month Definitely, Maybe released its self-titled debut EP, recorded in Gabbianelli's home studio. We recently featured "Being" off that record on our latest Colorado Music Sampler. Definitely, Maybe stopped by the CPR Performance Studio before a show at Denver's Fort Greene Bar. The band members played four songs from the new EP and spoke with Bruce Trujillo about the benefits of recording in your own studio, filming a music video for "Sleep" and what they've learned about the Denver music community over the past few years.
