First Listen: Ishi - "Bring The Thunder" (Rome In Silver Remix)


We get our first look at the new remix for Bring The Thunder courtesy of Ishi today. The remix gives us hints of the sexiness of Prince mixed in with some upbeat galactic dance vibes that has us dancing non-stop. You can catch Ishi as he makes a stop here in Denver on March 22 at The Hi-Dive.

Thanks to the internet and specifically Soundcloud I met Rome in Silver by randomly hearing his music. I reached out and we had a mutual respect for each other's artistry. We started a long distance friendship & collaboration in which you are witnessing. He fell in love with this track and completed a sexy remix & the rest is history.

New Music Alert! Tyto Alba - "Oh Pride"


Our good friends from Tyto Alba have released their new single off their upcoming full-length album Suckers set to drop in May! The band has ben working hard on their new album and “Oh Pride” gives us a taste of what is to come. The band will be having a release party of May 4th this year at Hi-dive, stay tuned for more information on that.

The track utilizes its biggest strength by showcasing Steinway’s voice to capture the meaning of the song giving us a first hand look at the struggle between pride and uncertainty for what lies ahead.

Whiskey Autumn for the past couple of years has been flying under the radar in the Denver music scene and are finally garnering some much needed respect. On this track the band captures a much more dance friendly vibe playing to the strengths of Laut’s unique voice all while delivering production that will have us clapping in unison at their next performance which is on April 12th at Lost Lake.

Monochrome Actress” is the third single from Whiskey Autumn’s upcoming album, Modern Doubt. The first, “Birds That Flew,” premiered with 303 Magazine, followed by the premiere of “Let’s Go Sailing Instead” on CPR’s OpenAir. After a buzzworthy set at UMS 2018 and extensive touring throughout the Pacific Northwest and Midwest, Whiskey Autumn was named one of “13 Local Musicians to Watch Out For In 2019” by 303 Magazine.

Produced by band members Greg Laut and Jason Paton, “Monochrome Actress” is a dreamy electro pop tune which builds off the foundation of Whiskey Autumn’s previous EP, Ice Cream In The Sun. The song was mixed by Chris Scott (OptycNerd, Young The Giant) and mastered by Jim Wilson (David Byrne, Neko Case, The Yawpers). The track was written by frontman Greg Laut and features an old Hollywood film noir sample, dancey synth lines, jangly surf guitar, and falsetto vocals. The track juxtaposes classic Hollywood’s outward appearance of glitz and glamour with the grim realities of attempting to succeed within the entertainment industry.

Says Laut, “‘Monochrome Actress’ was written after watching a slew of classic films from the ‘40s and ‘50s. Movies have always been a great source of inspiration for me and it was fun to tap into an old Hollywood vibe for this song while meditating on the dark realities of showbiz.”
