Kyle Emerson, Denver’s buzzy indie-rocker released his sophomore album, Only Coming Down, on November 1st, 2019 via Swoon City Music. As a follow up from Emerson’s 2017 debut album, Dorothy Alice, Only Coming Down, puts the singer/songwriter’s skills on display, in which he deftly expands his garage-pop sensibilities with lush full-band arrangements and plenty of toothsome melodic hooks. At turns dreamy and driving, Emerson’s new release bridges classic and contemporary sounds to create a warm, inviting, and introspective atmosphere.

Emerson has released three singles from the new album – “May You Find Peace,” “I Can Change.” and “Better,” – which have been met with critical acclaim. EARMILK praised “May You Find Peace” as, “synthwave goodness that makes this a track to add to your library immediately.” The song has tracked over 100K streams on Spotify since its release and is continuing to gain traction with critics and fans alike. “I Can Change,” also welcomed warm reviews with its release, with Get Some Magazine saying, “With its breezy guitar chords, chill drums, and catchy vocals, this track will instantly find its way to the top of your indie-rock “vibes” playlist.” Marquee Magazine describes Emerson’s latest musical endeavor as, “”window-down psychedelic pop.”

Only Coming Down was co-produced with Emerson’s drummer Mark Anderson, who also took over engineering duties alongside James Barone (Beach House, Nathaniel Rateliff, Tennis).


Turvy Organ’s self-recorded 2016 debut, “The Soft Light,“ was a rich introduction to the band’s influences: energetic, fist-pumping mid-2000s indie rock like Wolf Parade, Bright Eyes, and Modest Mouse. There’s a nostalgia in their formula, but it feels fresh thanks to frontman Ilya Litoshik, who delivers his straightforward lyrics with disarming passion and earnestness. It’s also helped along by the neurotic, dynamic arrangements and squelchy leads, adding up to a sound tailor-made for a long, winding drive through the desert.

Litoshik founded Turvy Organ in Austin, Texas in 2012. After touring the U.S. as a solo singer-songwriter, Litoshik moved to Denver, where he met Paul Simmons and Anthony Duran, who now form the band’s propulsive rhythm section.

After weathering several lineup changes, the band has carefully honed their sound and gigged at a torrid pace, opening up for rising indie upstarts like Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Gringo Star, and Iska Dhaaf. Their work ethic and magnetic songs have won them a core following in the Front Range area, with 303 Magazine and Westword naming them one of the best alternative bands in Denver.

The band’s sophomore album, recorded at Goldson Studios, is tentatively set for release in late 2018.

"Colorado based Turvy Organ‘s debut The Soft Light is that perfectly special secret you keep close. The five-piece has released several EPs since 2010, each of which steadily teases what their sound has evolved to today: a broken folk and psychedelic indie-synth stumble through a multitude of wavelengths from far corners; unresolved, unconcerned, and catchy as all hell."


“Turvy Organ is the secret great band more people should know about because its orchestral pop songs are dark, moody, expansive and thought-provoking.” - Tom Murphy, QUEEN CITY SOUNDS AND ART


Aught rock.
