Saw Tame Impala last night and asked the Kuroma gang if Andrew and Ben were hiding in a cavern off the coast of France doing space drugs or something and they said yeah.

Press Release
Alt-Rock Trio the Reach to Reunites for 20th Anniversary Show, New Single
20 years after the release of their first album, Closer, The Reach is reuniting for a one time only show at The Bull & Bush in Denver, CO. They are reuniting again with bassist Dave Scott to release a new single (covers of MGMT's "Time to Pretend" and The Stranglers' "No Mercy"), along with, a remastered version of LIFT, and a fully remixed and remastered 20th Anniversary Edition of Closer.

 

Denver, CO   -   October 8, 2015   - (Newswire.com)
20 years after the release of their first album, Closer, The Reach is reuniting for a one time only show at The Bull & Bush in Denver, CO.

The band formed in 1994 in Dallas, TX, garnering major label interest and critical acclaim for the aforementioned “Closer” album.  After disbanding in 1997 for all the usual reasons, drummer Tommy Watts and Craig Miller reunited briefly to record a second album, LIFT in 2003.

They are now reuniting again with bassist Dave Scott to release a new single (covers of MGMT’s “Time to Pretend” and The Stranglers’ “No Mercy”), along with a remastered version of LIFT, and a fully remixed and remastered 20th Anniversary Edition of Closer.

Although largely ignored in their hometown of Dallas, TX, the band has gained a passionate following over the years in Denver, CO, with the help of the owners of the Bull & Bush pub, who have spread the word about their unique sound. “The bottom line is, we were one of the better bands of the 90’s, despite our lack of exposure,” said Miller.  “When people hear us, they agree.” 

The show will be this Halloween night, Saturday October 31st, and is sure to be a memorable one.  “The guys at the Bull and Bush have kept our music alive, and we’re pumped to bring our sound back to life in Denver,” said bassist Scott. “We plan on bringing our best.”

Release Dates:

LIFT (2015 remastered edition) – available now

Closer (20th Anniversary Edition) – available Oct. 20, 2015

Time to Pretend/No Mercy – available Oct. 20, 2015

PREMIERE: FRESH DIXIE PERFORM A JAZZY REWORKING OF 'ELECTRIC FEEL'


The London quintet have been making waves in the jazz circles - try something new this Thursday

f you've ever wanted to get into jazz but have no idea where to start, try out this MGMT reworking from London upstarts, Fresh Dixie.

A recipe for gorgeous tracks, the quintet fusion of jazz and pop shines on record and absolutely blisters in a live setting with both impressive improvisational and infectious pop hooks - truly the best of both worlds.

They started writing their own material after growing weary of playing the same jazz standards at University. They took advantage of the eclectic tastes of the band and crafted their own stylings around the crossover potential of their collective influneces - and the result is fanastastic.

Thier cover of MGMT's 'Electric Feel' reduces the track down to it's core elements building up as a piano and vocal led track that slowly morphs a grand composition with smooth percussion and subtle instrumentation under the mix.


You guys know that Electric Feel is my least fave MGMT song, but I still like it more than most songs ever written.  I'm obsessed with this!!!!  Run, don't walk!!!!
