Cobalt. Hi-Dive. 09.24.16

Cobalt. Hi-Dive. 09.24.16 Back in 2012 I wrote an extensive profile on Profound Lore Records. It had been three years since Cobalt’s groundbreaking Gin had been released and Chris Bruni was confident the follow-up was on its way. “Phil has done his service in Iraq, which is great, so Cobalt will become a focus. They are currently writing the next full-length… Read more →

John Moreland. Hi-Dive. 05.07.15

John Moreland. Hi-Dive. 05.07.15 John Moreland and I used to be friends. We used to hang out at 3 Kings drinking tallboy PBRs. We discovered Boulder’s Illegal Pete’s together.

It was 997°F in the Baker neighborhood of Denver yesterday, which coincidentally made it just a few degrees cooler than it was in the Golden Triangle for the Westword Music Showcase a few weeks ago.  You would have thought we’d have missed the worst of the heat by waiting until 5:00pm to show up, but as we made our way… Read more →

EMA. Hi-Dive. 03.06.12

There were many things I didn’t know when I walked into Hi-Dive last night.  I was ignorant and full of misconceptions.  First off, I was unaware of Erika M. Anderson’s history with Denver.  It seems she has been frequenting our Mile High City for quite some time, both as EMA, and with her previous band Gowns.  Giving props to our… Read more →
