Red Rocks Run. 05.30.13 – 06.03.13

The Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado is a seasonal destination. Sure, tourists can be found exploring the century-old venue every day of the year, but it isn’t until Spring that the rocks really shine. The scene on the ground might change from night to night, depending on what acts are booked to grace the...

‘cure my ills': Recommended Releases 04.12

April was a good month for music, but it did provide a lull in what has been an incredible start to the new year. That being said, there are still quite a few albums worth checking out, and as much as I hate grouping recommendations into posts like this, other aspects of life are...

Class of 2011: The Soundtrack

ILSUDH2 still prefers to listen to albums in their entirety, which makes it very hard to put together a list of ‘best tracks’ at the end of each year.  This year was no exception.  Therefore, what follows is a massive soundtrack to the reality show known as 2011.  To say these songs represent the...

‘are you scared to tell somebody how you feel about somebody’

Alabama Shakes – Alabama Shakes EP (self-released, 2011) Flavorwire published a piece on The 10 Things That Are Killing Indie Music in 2011 today and I have to say I think it was a pretty shitty article from a site I look forward to visiting every day.  Not only did they jump on the...
