[Rock] Shiny Wet Machine – Lights Out B-Sides

There’s one group of rockers that stands out to us among the rest and that is Shiny Wet Machine. On April 25th the duo dropped their debut EP, Lights Out, on Diet Punk, but on June 22nd they released the b-sides of their project. Even though they’re just b-sides, they are well worth the listen.

Four tracks were cut from the EP, but they could have made it on if SWM was going for an album. We love when people release b-sides, because sometimes there are some gems that get lost through the filtering process. Shiny Wet Machine aren’t about filters though. Punk lives and breathes through them, so jumping back to the time when b-sides were more common isn’t something that is all that surprising. We’re glad they did this, because now we have four more rockin’ records to enjoy from two of our favorite musicians.

’Breakfast’
’Coma’
’Spine’
’Gash’

[Event Preview/Playlist] The Underground Music Showcase – Denver, CO

The 17th anniversary of one of Denver’s most storied music events, The Underground Music Showcase, is just around the corner. What began as a one-night performance featuring just four bands, The UMS has steadily exploded into to a four-day music and art festival featuring hundreds of performances. As the time draws nearer to what will no doubt be another incredible weekend pf performances, it’s time to get our readers familiar with this year’s crop of (mostly) burgeoning artists spanning a plethora of genres and sounds. While this recent slate of participating artists is the second wave, we can assuredly expect one more run of performers to be added to this year’s bill, so stay tuned!

This year’s bill features one of the more eclectic, varied lineups we’ve been privy to for a number of years, including a seemingly heavier focus on displaying the myriad talent spread across The Centennial State (that’s Colorado ya yokels). On the top end of things, The UMS features an incredible slate of headlining performances from the likes of Nika Roza Danilova’s influential avant-pop project Zola Jesus,  New Orleans based Benjamin Booker‘s raw brand of blues/boogie/soul/rock, Red Fang‘s primal-yet-refined  stoner-metal, John Jagos’ lofi pop alter-ego and TMN darling Brothertiger, and the smoothly subdued vocal stylings of Esmé Patterson. In addition to the already excellent pallet of headliners, The UMS also will be presenting countless sets from some of our absolute favorite Colorado artists including Flaural, Povi, RUMTUM, Slow Caves & Dragondeer. To get your ears tuned for next month’s festivities, check out our preview playlist below and get your learn on if you haven’t already. Tickets are still on presale, so hop to it and pick up a 4-day pass on the cheap here!
