SPELLS is a five-piece rock juggernaut from Denver, CO. They are vacation rock to be exact. They produce short

blasts of intense melody and driving rhythms that are custom made to entertain the band members athemselves and

serve as an excuse to go play shows in cities that have beaches nearby. If your city’s best offers include said beach

and a good breakfast joint, count them in. If the best your city can do is a punk house that smells like cat shit and a

Subway restaurant inside a gas station, they will pass.

SPELLS is signed to Snappy Little Numbers Quality Audio Recordings, which is now on the cusp of being a

household name the world over. Focused on excellence in music and packaging, SLN is dedicated to the fine art of

the analog format, especially vinyl (but maybe a cassette on occasion). Take Time/Slice Away”, their debut 7”, was a

runaway hit. “Double Cassingle” is the band’s follow up effort and contains four sure-fire hits that are guaranteed* to

distract you from the worst 10 minutes of your day and probably turn them into the best 10 minutes of your day.

*The band makes no guarantees but thinks this scenario is realistic considering their immense artistic vision and talent
Bud Bronson + the Good Timers
Bud Bronson + the Good Timers
A lot of the classic-rock-inspired music that’s come about over the past decade has sounded like a cut-rate version of the real thing. If we heard enough fake Led Zeppelins in the ’80s to last a lifetime, in more recent years, there have been enough ersatz Neil Youngs and Laurel Canyon clones to colonize space. Bud Bronson & the Good Timers, though, are different. Their music is not all dramatic delivery with no substance; instead, it’s the kind of triumphant power pop that feels like it’s coming from an honest place rather than being an affectation of style. For these guys, getting ahold of an older relative’s record collection was a beginning point, not a destination. That they have moved beyond obvious influences makes Bud Bronson & the Good Timers one of the most exciting rock-and-roll bands in Denver at this moment.

Alternative to independent college punk, or at least I'm told.
