Allout Helter
Allout Helter
Allout Helter finally returns with The Notion of Control, their second full length album and first major release for Bird Attack Records. A beautifully heavy album full of vivid imagery, dynamic melody and thrashy riffage, this latest release furthers the bands’ reputation for pushing the boundaries of progressive, melodic hardcore. Produced by Trevor Reilly (A Wilhelm Scream), recorded and mixed at Green Door Recordings, and mastered by Audiosiege, this is certainly Allout Helter’s most well-crafted material to date.

Whether playing sweaty clubs, DIY garages or alongside lauded touring acts, Allout Helter is always busy annihilating whatever stage they’re on with their intense and engaging live show, having even worked their way to festivals like Riot Fest Denver and The Fest. Now, with this latest album, Allout Helter continues to prove why they’re a mainstay of the music scene and one of the most sought after bands in Denver.

The Windermeres bring an original punk sound to the Denver music scene. With an undeniable stage presence and a powerful energy, The Windermeres have a lot to offer to any audience who gets to see them live. Their musical ideas span from catchy melodies, and cheerful progressions to dark concepts and powerful lyrical ideas that can quickly change direction. The dichotomy in the music of The Windermeres is part of the allure they bring to the table. Their variety attests to the originality and creativity of the band. Every song is something different, and each its own statement. Their energy and passion is incessantly evident, from the stage to the studio, from the first note to the last, The Windermeres are sure to have you captivated.

When a baby’s born, I can’t help but think about the parents. Are they ready? Do they know what they’re getting into? Is that kid sorta fucked or sorta blessed? Same goes with bands where you already know their genealogy before the needle hits the groove. April Froschheuser was/is in Vena Cava. John was in The Achievement: two so-honest-it-aches bands that I’ve spent weeks-worth of spins listening to over the years. Black Dots sounds like a wise democracy that’s figured out its infrastructure before putting up flashing signage. Three principle songwriters. Two principle singers—vacillating between Florida ex-pat Wade and John—topically ranging from teenage depression-cutting to “the journey vs. the top of the mountain” headspace of an isolated band playing in Denver. In the background, on the blacktop in the distance, I hear Rumbleseat, Tim Version, long drives to find sympathetic souls, and small, semi-hidden tattoos being way more meaningful than sleeves of brightly-colored ink. Like little black dots. Worth seeking out. –Todd Taylor, Razorcake
