Missed local bands playing live in our studio? No problem! You can listen to the whole things right here.
Another week, another in-studio. Last week featured Fat Stallion, an experimental rock group which recently delved into the realm of hip-hop and folk. By recently, I mean a few months ago as they’ve already released two unique albums this year. We discussed their sporadic change in style, and more during the session.
Mlady is coming into the music scene strong this year. Their debut, self-titled EP consists of 6 beautiful originals, 4 of which they performed during their sessions. Between the live music, we discussed the band’s initial chemistry and the lighthearted competitiveness between members.
Dry Reef, a Philadelphia band currently touring through Colorado, graciously fit an in-studio performance into their schedule. The surf rock group brought their good vibes to the studio yesterday with five original songs and four positive attitudes. Between songs, we discussed their music, tour life, and more.
If you’d like to experience Dry Reef’s live performance, you’re in luck! The band has five more shows in Colorado, two of which are in Fort Collins. You can also here their in-studio performance below.
Schitzo-pop band, The Sun Machine, delivered during their live performance last week. The group is based in Austin, Texas, and they are currently in the middle of a West Coast tour. The band is know for their paranormal influences, as their latest album, “Turn on to Evil,” was based on first-hand experiences with spirits. Between songs, we discussed the paranormal adventures of the band, their inability to conform to a genre, and more.
Acoustic sessions are always a delight at the studio, and FoxFeather was no exception. Three members of the Boulder based band came in last week and debuted two new songs during the session. Between songs, we discuss the feminist nature of their music, their projects in Colorado’s music scene, and more.
Metal music may just seem like a lot of screaming, but as UnEarnest Apologies displayed a few weeks ago, the genre is more than an aggressive outlet. They blasted the studio with 5 original songs, and between the music, the band discussed the passion and art enveloped in their music.
Slow Caves, a local band on a break from their hectic touring schedule, brought their synth-pop sounds to the studio last week. The band is known for their beautiful harmonies which are still highlighted in their new music. During the acoustic set, Slow Caves debuted two new songs called “Before I Leave” and “Minimum Rage,” which we discussed along with their previous album “Falling.”
Besides discussing their music, we had a great time diving into their relationship with Denmark and life as a touring band.

Aberdeen is a Nashville based, country-pop duo that debuted their first self-titled album in January of 2018. Aberdeen is composed of Caleb Maitland and Jordan Anderson. The duo was passing through town to perform at Jordan’s hometown of Loveland, Colorado for the Larimer County Fair. Aberdeen debuted a couple of unreleased tracks, played some fan favorites such as “Someone Like You,” “Paralyzed,” and “Faith.” Check out this in-studio as they breakdown their songwriting process, favorite fair food, and plans for the future.
Easy Lovin’, a Denver based band quite familiar with Fort Collin’s music scene, came in last week for a live performance. The set consisted of all original, unreleased music, and showcased the variety of the band. With a mix of dreamy vocals and psychedelic sounds, Easy Lovin’ brings a unique vibe to Colorado’s music scene.
Stella Luce’s in-studio session was one for the books. The unorthodox group specializes in making what they want to hear, which happens to be beautiful music. Beautifully eerie is more accurate. With flawless vocals and a dominant viola, the rock band sets itself apart in the local scene.
Each project Stella Luce puts out excels all expectations. However, after eleven years of making music, the band is no more. They performed their new (and last) EP “Some Kind of Shitty Heaven” on-air last week, and we discussed the band breaking up between songs.
