The singer-songwriter and Heartless Bastards bandleader stopped by for a Guest DJ session.
The folk trio released its sophomore album earlier this year.
2018 was a breakout year for indie rock artist Sophie Allison. The Nashville singer and guitarist spent years self-releasing her lo-fi recordings before catching the attention of the indie label Fat Possum, which has released albums by The Black Keys and Modest Mouse. Earlier this year she released "Clean," her debut studio album as Soccer Mommy, via that label. Soccer Mommy stopped into the CPR Performance Studio before a show at the Downtown Artery in Fort Collins. Allison and her band played some songs from "Clean" and spoke with Bruce Trujillo about recording songs in her college dorm room, working in a studio for the first time and finding inspiration from astrology.
Bud Bronson & The Good Timers released their sophomore album, "Between the Outfield and Outer Space," last month. The Denver quartet says it's a move away from the "blissful ignorance" of their rowdy debut album and toward more serious subject matter. But the band's vibrant rock 'n' roll energy remains intact. Bud Bronson & The Good Timers recently played in the CPR Performance Studio for the first time since 2015. The band members played three songs from the new LP and spoke with Alisha Sweeney about their recent U.S. tour, the dangers of nostalgia and how the 2016 presidential election affected their musical outlook.
On Nov. 22, we're giving thanks to the Colorado music scene.
Slothrust played a set of jazz-influenced rock in our studio last year. Since then, the New York trio released its fourth album, "The Pact." The record features a heavier sound for the band as well as electronic instruments like drum machine and synthesizer. Slothrust returned to the CPR Performance Studio before a show at Denver's Lost Lake. The band members played three songs from "The Pact" and spoke with Bruce Trujillo about the Slothrust video game and reworking songs from artists like Britney Spears and Black Sabbath on a recent EP of covers.
