Mosey West is set to release their third EP, Bermuda on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. The six-song, self-produced EP was recorded at the legendary Blasting Room Studios in Fort Collins, CO in the spring of 2013. The record was engineered and mixed by Andrew Berlin (the Lemonheads, Drag the River) and mastered at Focus Mastering in Omaha, NE by Doug Van Sloun (Bright Eyes, She & Him).

Mosey West fuses psychedelic, folk and country-rock influences in a haze of distorted guitar and reverb-soaked vocals. The group formed in Fort Collins, CO in 2011 and self-released two well-received EPs in their first year together. Their debut EP, “Vaca Money” was released in 2011 followed by their sophomore EP “Merica” released in 2012. The band is known for their live energy, soaring harmonies and unique performances.
Strange Americans
Strange Americans
It’s the kind of music that the Carhartt-wearing, hard-working, industrial beer-drinking, regular Americans would listen to — the ones who could end up on an episode of TV’s Dirty Jobs. It’s a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. It’s blue collar rock and roll and it’s something that Denver’s Strange Americans are crafting with both brawn and finesse, like a hot rod mechanic bringing back an old barn find.

In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.

Strange Americans first began in 2009 through a series of Craigslist ads and mutual acquaintances. The group, which released its much applauded debut full-length A Royal Battle in 2012, released its sophomore album That Kind of Luster in September of 2014 . The ten-song, 45-minute rocker which the group began working on in the summer of 2013, showcases a band that has dialed in an authentic, raucous live show and somehow convey that same energy in the studio as well.

Strange Americans has shared the stage with acts including The Hold Steady, The Whigs, Dead Confederate, Water Liars, Trampled By Turtles, Yukon Blonde, Cory Branan, The Fling, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Gin Blossoms, and Nick Urata (DeVotchKa).
