Local “newgrass” group Head for the Hills performed a combination of old and new tracks during their in-studio session. The group has bluegrass roots, but has recently incorporated drums and a horn section into their music. We discussed their recent musical changes and their love for coffee, beards and vinyl between songs.
Holdfast joined me in the studio a few weeks ago to share some acoustic tunes on-air. We discussed their trip to California and the brotherly dynamic between members throughout the session. The set started with “I’ll be Waiting for It,” and ended with three new songs that will be on their album coming out this summer.
Chess at Breakfast blessed the airwaves with their music last week. They performed four songs from their album “Wealthcare,” which came out today. We discussed their genius branding strategy, how Justin’s double bass added a creepy vibe to the “Maybe it’s Your Birthday (The Dead are Dead)” music video, and more between the live songs.
Bluegrass group Wood Belly brought the energy a few weeks ago during their in-studio performance. They performed six orginals during the set and laughed their way through the interview between songs. We discovered the stand-out hipster of the group, Taylor’s lonely barbecue routine, and more throughout the session.
Glass Cases joined me in the studio last month to perform some new singles. Their combination of electronic and raw elements gave each song a sense of uniqueness. Between songs, we discussed the relevance “The Catcher in the Rye” has to the band and the backstories of the singles.
Alex Moore of Satellite Pilot joined me in the studio a few weeks ago to share some songs from the group’s new album, “Lovely Day.” We discussed Alex’s interest in the cosmos and the inspiration for a few of the songs off “Lovely Day” between songs.
Electronic group 3420 joined me in the studio last month to perform some live music. They performed two originals in the set, and we discussed their band name’s origin and Colorado’s electronic music scene between songs.

Mitchell James brought some bars to the airwaves last week as he performed some tracks live from our studio. We discuss the challenges of being in a lyric driven genre, stigmas in rap, and more throughout the conversation.
