Death Grips was in town this past weekend at the Larimer Lounge and delivered one of the more stirring sets that Tom Murphy, who's seen and covered more than his fair share of shows over the years, has seen recently. Tom summed up the experience thusly: "More than most bands, hip-hop, rock, or anything else, there was an exhilarating sense of forward momentum with Death Grips. When the set ended, there was no encore, and none was needed. You definitely felt like the band could do the same set again and you wouldn't get sick of it. But no human alive could have delivered that kind of show again back to back."

Reprise might have given up on these guys, but judging from the massive crowd assembled for its mid-afternoon set, the local fans haven't given up on, nor forgotten about, Single File. Leave it to a major label to drop the ball, eh? And as you'll hear after the jump upon downloading the second of our exclusive post in The Denver Boot, Sloan Anderson and company sound as good as ever. Happy downloading!

Westword Music Showcase edition of The Denver Boot

0406_denver-boot.jpg
Our periodic feature, The Denver Boot, has been conspicuously dormant for the past, oh, six months or so. Perhaps you've noticed. Excellent reason for that: The master taper guy supplying the recordings, the illustrious Lance Stack from The Flat Response blog, has been a face on a milk carton for, oh, well, the past six months or so.

Stack resurfaced unexpectedly yesterday, in honor of the sold out 16th annual Westword Music Showcase, dusted off his recording gear and pressed record. What a perfect time to resurface, eh? And so what better time to revive The Denver Boot. Download the results of his efforts after the jump (sets by Superchunk, Dirty Projectors, Flashbulb Fires and Snake Rattle Rattle Snake).

A few weeks ago, Danielle Ate the Sandwich took part in a stellar, sold out bill at the Bluebird, headlined by Gregory Alan Isakov and featuring Eleanor and our own Andy Thomas. Our pal Lance Stack from TheFlatResponse.com was there and brought along his mikes and recorders and captured the sets. Lance has graciously bestowed upon us Danielle's set from that night, that we're now sharing with you. Download the entire set after the jump.

The Denver Boot: Murder Ranks at 3 Kings Tavern - 09/06/09

Categories: The Denver Boot

A few weeks ago, we offered up a list of our dream reunions. You responded by offering up dream lists of your own. And as we've been out an about and the subject has been broached over beers, one local name keeps coming up -- the Warlock Pinchers, a now mythical act whose latent irreverence was matched only by its caustic wit. As it turns out, the band reunited last month -- well, as close as we're going to get to a reunion for the time being anyway, when Dan Wanush (aka King Scratchie) of Murder Ranks was joined on stage by Andrew Novick (K.C. K-sum) of Get Your Going. The pair tackled a few Pinchers cuts, including the inimitably profane "Morrisey Rides a Cockhorse." Our pal James Freeman (who just launched a blog of his own, BTW, called That's the Thing About That), was not only on hand for the performance, but taped it -- the entire set. And since he's graciously blessed us with the recordings, we're now laying 'em on you. Download the entire set after the jump. Gratis. You're welcome.

The Denver Boot: Achille Lauro at the Bluebird Theater

Nearly two weeks ago, Achille Lauro opened up for Akron/Family at the Bluebird. Achille Lauro was dependably stellar as always. "In terms of the opening three bands, however, Achille Lauro's set stood out," wrote A.H. Goldstein in his review of the show. "The outfit's meditative and eloquent guitar lines, deepened by frontman Matt Close's sinuous synth lines and emotive vocals, made for a grounded and consistent set. Guitarist Luke Mossman offered plaintive and expertly plucked lines, a constant boon that helped carry the group's set." Our buddy Lance Stack from the Flat Response captured the whole set and has once again graciously hooked us up with links to download for this week's Boot. Enjoy!

Yes, we know we already posted a Denver Boot this week -- earlier today in fact. Consider this one a bonus.

So of course, when we caught wind, we jumped at the chance to bless you with it. So what are you waiting for? Get your download on after the jump.
