The Rams took a beating from their in state rivals the Colorado Buffalo. With a final score of 44 to 7 the Rams could not get anything going on offence or stop the high tempo offence of the Buffs on defense. 69,850 fans came to watch the 2016 Rocky Mountain Showdown. That crowd dissipated after half way through the third quarter. The word repeated by all the players after the game was “Embarrassed”. This word was said repeatedly by head Coach Mike Bobo’s post-game press conference. This team right now needs to choose do they want to do better...

Tiny Moving Parts Interview

Math rock, Screamo, Emo, and even Twinkly Emo are all genres that have been used to describe Tiny Moving Parts. This three-piece family band out of Benson, Minnesota stands out in all of these scenes because they fall under all of them and even more. Versatile, fast-paced hammering combined with lead singer Dylan Mattheisen’s almost Tom Delonge inspired writhing vocals gives the band a unique sound that isn’t present anywhere else. Along with brothers Bill and Matt Chevalier on drums and bass/vocals, respectively, the band feeds...

So So Glos Interview

When a band is described as punk, you might assume uncoordinated guitar parts, untrained vocals, and power chord melodies. The So So Glos take the early sounds of punk and fuse it with catchy riffs and melodies while keeping the light hearted and energized spirit of the culture. I describe them as classic, energetic punk with a lick of modern sounding flavor. But with that flavor is a message combining these songs with political statements and the current state of our country. With their third studio release, Kamikaze makes the band’s...

Modern Baseball Interview

Modern Baseball is a group of four rambunctious young adults who decided to get together and write about girls and the troubles that they have had with them. They go a step further by creating cathartic, powerful songs that lead to any listener screaming out the lyrics that hold a different meaning to each individual fan. It’s something relatable to all people that pick any song to listen to. Recently, Modern Baseball has released Holy Ghost as a way to cope with the struggles that the members have dealt with in the past year. These...

Say Anything Interview

Say Anything has entrenched itself in the spine of all alternative and emo music that has been made in the last decade. Since the release of …Is a Real Boy, Say Anything has stayed relevant and continued to push out music and push the border of the genres. Not a single album that the frontman, Max Bemis, has released can really be heard on any other album of the band. It’s safe to say that Say Anything will always have a place in the ever changing scene because they are the one changing it. I got to sit down with Max before their...

Brand New Reenvisions Their Original Sound (Squid Thoughts)

Brand New unexpectedly dropped a single today along with album release information. The single “I Am A Nightmare” breaks their experimental trend that Brand New had created with the hardcore release of Daisy. This release brings back the definitive sound of Your Favorite Weapon which means plenty of fans will be pleased. While one song from an album cannot define the album as a whole, I Am A Nightmare may bring back a lot of the old Brand New styles and sounds. Rumors of Brand New ending had been brought up after frontman Jesse...

FoCoMX Review: Meena Rezaei

Artist: The Covz      I walk into Hodi’s and was welcomed by ambient Christmas lights and The Covz providing the perfect mellow-beach rock to groove to. All the members were dressed to the nines; with bow ties and slacks to match the old school microphone they brought on stage with them. These boys clearly cared about their presentation and it went really well with the nostalgia that exuded from their music. The music itself was incredible, giving a beach-punk romantic vibe. Each song had its own characteristic but they all followed the...

FoCoMX Review: Lia Conger

Band: Holdfast The Saturday of FocoMX, April 23, the rock trio Holdfast held down the vibes at the Downtown Artery. Although the group is young, Charlie, Michael and Tommy blend their talents and had the audience entranced by their vocalist’s strong voice and synced up movements. While walking in, the crowd is small but the ambiance is high. Imagine walking into a low-light garage and sitting in the doorway while looking out into a blue sky in your favorite chair, with a flood of mid-afternoon light and wind flowing through. I was able to sit...

FoCoMX Review: Stephanie Vosicka

Artist: Post Paradise         Bringing a fresh new twist on alternative music with a strong emphasis on incorporating the cello, Post Paradise is as enticing live as they are from their latest album Bring It To Life (Side A). With a cultural background from: Colorado Springs, Florida, and New York, the band brings a whole melting pot of emotion and passion into their work. With rugged vocals that remind you of a lower pitched version of Fall Out Boy, along side the guitar and drums, which bring a feeling of classic rock, it’s the cello that...
