This is Slopeside’s third full-length album and it does not disappoint. The album keeps you guessing after each song. There is a different sound on each song, keeping it interesting throughout. They walk the line between folk, blues, rock, pop, and a little reggae and it works well for them. On their website they describe their music as “Fleetwood Mac meets Tom Petty at a Pink Floyd concert,” which is an almost perfect description of their music style. They have been performing around Colorado since 2005 and they keep gaining more traction and recognition. The mixture of both female and male vocals makes a nice change throughout the album. The album starts off with the amazing song “Faded” and keeps getting better with highs and lows. “Ophelia” is another song that stands out on the album; the song is slower but so beautiful and reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac you could listen to it in any mood.

Earth Burnt Black presents a fractured type of prog-metal sure to lure in any fan of this quickly changing and growing genre. This dark and enveloping album will grab you with its chugs and burn you with its constant diversity. It […]

Though the Denver-based quartet’s latest release lasts barely more than fifteen minutes, the music is crammed with enough nostalgia to recall the days when Courtney Love was still getting attention and Lollapalooza was a modest music festival with a funny name. The influences are so up-front, in fact, that Wish I […]
