Last of the Easy Riders
Last of the Easy Riders
While Last of the Easy Riders formed last summer in Denver, the band of sonic nomads each converged high in the Rocky Mountains individually from various parts of the country.

Even with dissimilar backgrounds, each of the musicians shared one common vision: to create cosmic rock ‘n’ roll. The outcome is the band’s naturally formulated blend of raw Midwestern treble and passionate deep-south rhythm and bass. That acoustic integrity shines bright on the group’s gutsy self-titled debut EP on Agitated Records.

Much like their iconic heroes in bygone country-rock outfits like The Byrds and The Band, each member contributes song credits to the new disc. The band comprises guitarist/vocalist, Christopher Minarik, Mitch Mitchum (drums, vocals), Daniel Duggan (bass, vocals) and guitarist, Bradley T Grear.

“It’s what makes us dynamic – four individual songwriters playing in a band together,” said Minarik, who refers to Last of the Easy Riders as “southwestern psych-rock.”

The earthy, inspired track list projects the tranquility of the outdoors, or perhaps hazily driving through Joshua Tree National Park with the windows down, while a CCR cassette warmly hums in the background. It’s an honest, but optimistic batch of original tunes.

“It conveys the aspect of moving across the country,” Minarik added. “Or overcoming past experiences and crossing into the next stages of modern adulthood.”

And even though this freshly pressed EP was recorded earlier this year in a remote cabin in Rollinsville, Colorado – the production and arrangements throwback to the golden days of ‘60s American music – back when Buck Owens still ruled Bakersfield and Gram Parsons still had a chance.
The Guestlist
The Guestlist
The Guestlist are bringing their mountain sounds across the nation. Hailing from Denver, CO this six-piece rock band has been making a name for themselves across airwaves and music venues. With their upcoming release of Racing, Chasing (September 1), the band prepares to travel coast-to-coast in support. Coming off a fresh tour to the East coast in June, the band had the pleasure of performing in Rochester, New York City, DC, and sharing the stage with The Nude Party & Post Animals in Boone, NC. Without missing a beat, the band prepares to follow the summer with headlining shows in Denver, supporting at The Fox Theater in Boulder, and an August tour that will see them return to Seattle and Portland. The band has had the pleasure of performing with Fantastic Negrito, Paper Bird, Black Pistol Fire, and The Suffers.

Racing, Chasing takes elements of rock, blues, jazz, and americana to formulate a powerful album with its lead single, “Lonely”. Produced by Mark Anderson (Paper Bird) at Mammoth Cave in Denver, the album has had positive responses from their peers and associates. With the support of a national radio and publicity campaign, The Guestlist expect to build on an already thriving following.

".. (The Guestlist) has the meditative feel of a Rocky Mountain sunset. Chalk it up to the slow tempos, the haunting rounds of slide guitar or the bluesy lyrical plaints — whatever the source, the record offers a strong sense of high altitudes, late-night campfires and small-town calm." - Westword Magazine
