Album Review: SWEDEN’S THE AMAZING RELEASES FOURTH ALBUM “AMBULANCE”

I already knew this week would bring little in the way of quality new releases, but I expected more from a couple fairly familiar names. When I heard that Charlie Hunter was putting out a new album, I was stoked, but since sampling most of it, I found it was a little too jazzy and mellow, with not enough melody for where my ears were, this week. I had also thought that Stephen Marley’s fresh material would show-off the skills of one of the most talented of Bob Marley’s children, but it seemed to showcase so many other artists, that it kind of felt like Stephen got lost in the mix. However, two acts I didn’t know before did make a good argument for a review. Conveyor’s “Ready Not Ready” had a few impressive tracks, but The Amazing from Sweden seemed to offer something new, but vaguely familiar. The alternative quintet released their fourth full-length album “Ambulance”, yesterday.

The album opener, is also the title track, “Ambulance”, which settles into what seems like a millennial Roxy Music. It feels like a night under an expanse of tiny glowing lights, which is how Bryan Ferry’s voice has always made me feel.

“Divide” has a flavor that tastes early 90’s alternative, and isn’t catchy, but it is pleasant.

The vibe of “Blair Drager” is one that couples modern jazz backbeats with something more alternative, like a younger sounding Leonard Cohen, with a whisper of a singing voice.

“Tracks” creates a melodic landscape for the imagination to explore, as the music morphs gradually and organically into something reminiscent of War On Drugs. A tremendous instrumental piece.

The earthy roots of the steel guitar help to give “Floating” an energy like it was born into an early 90’s alternative scene. Probably one of the best songs on the album.

“Through City Lights” is a bit of a dreamy alternative rock tune, softened by some acoustic goodness. Unfortunately, though the song is good, it isn’t great due to the unnecessary length and repetition of the same lines during the second half of the tune.

“Moments Like These” is like a fantastic pairing of sounds similar to both Bon Iver and Field Report. It is like sitting on a hill where the world gives you 360 degree views of all she has to offer. This was the cut that most lured me to checking out the Swedish quintet.

The Bon Iver vibe sticks around on “Perfect Day For Shirmp” with an aura like an acoustic morning mist and the fog of the night before. The production on this track felt intuitive and it worked out well with the alternative singer/songwriter approach.

I won’t lie and say that “Ambulance” by Sweden’s The Amazing, was just that, but it certainly wasn’t bad, either. On their fourth full-length album the band makes music that is quite pleasant to hear, but not overly compelling to listen to. In other-words, I could put it on heavy rotation and it would take awhile for me to get sick of it, but I am also not sure  how much of my attention I would devote to the music on “Ambulance”. Fans of Roxy Music, Bon Iver and War On Drugs, may dig the sounds of The Amazing. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

Next week’s list of the live music to hear in the area, is extensive. There are plenty of big name acts coming to the Front Range next week, as well as tons of local musicians playing around the area. There are several free outdoor shows throughout the Front Range, and hopefully we have captured a majority of them. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides this list, there are more offerings for the next few months on the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

This is the list of shows and a festival happening the last few days of June into the Fourth Of July Weekend. Though the list may be a little shorter than usual, there is no shortage of great live music to hear in the area, next week. Between Umphrey’s McGee at Red Rocks and Dead & Co. at Folsom Field playing on July 2 and 3, there is also a ton of music scheduled around these shows in Denver and Boulder. With summer in full swing, and a holiday weekend coming up, there is little reason not to get out and hear some live music. For a more comprehensive list of recommended shows coming to the Front Range over the next several months, check-out the Coming Attractions page. A fairly complete list of the festivals in Colorado and some surrounding states, can be found on the Festival Time page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

BOHEMIAN NIGHTS ANNOUNCES MUSICAL SCHEDULE FOR NEW WEST FEST 2016!!

For several years Bohemian Nights at New West Fest, have presented several stages of excellent live music, at the annual Fort Collins festival, which happens in mid-August. In the past the festival has hosted hundreds of Colorado’s finest musical acts, as well as many nationally touring headliners. This free festival has presented a plethora of superior talent, including Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, Taj Mahal Trio, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Earl Scruggs, Los Lobos, Little Feat, Melissa Etheridge, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Leon Russell, Earth, Wind & Fire and many more. New West Fest has also brought the best local talent to the festival, like Elephant Revival, The Samples, The Subdudes, Emmitt Nershi Band, The Motet, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Hazel Miller, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Fierce Bad Rabbit, to name just a few.

This year’s New West Fest will take place over the weekend August 12-14, in downtown Fort Collins. For 2016, the musical acts have been culled almost exclusively from the tremendous pool of our states best performers. The fest will start at 5 p.m., Friday, August 12 on the Mountain Avenue and Library Park stages with sets from Otis Taylor, The Yawpers, The Railsplitters, Tickle Me Pink, Hello Dollface and Punch Drunk Munky Funk. Devotchka will bring their European gypsy flare to the Mountain Avenue stage and the mountain zydeco sounds of The Subdudes, will grace the Library Park stage to finish out the first night of the festival. On Saturday, Bohemian nights will present music for all ages on five stages, as well as the Kids’ Music Adventure Stage, starting at 11 a.m. Colorado’s own, The Fray, will be headliner on the Mountain Avenue Stage, with simulcasts being broadcast at the Linden Street and Library Park stages. The second day of the New West Fest will also see live music from 12 Cents For Marvin, In The Whale, Post Paradise, Justin Roth, Tallgrass, SHEL, Head For The Hills, Last Call Romance, Brent Cowles, The Haunted Windchimes, Finnders & Youngberg and plenty more. Sunday’s headlining act, has yet to be announced, but the third day of Bohemian Nights at New West Fest will bring more of Colorado’s choice musical talent, with sets from The Burroughs, Troutsteak Revival, Dubskin, Moors & McCumber, Dressy Bessy, Taarka, The Wendy Woo Band, Liz Barnez, The Epilogues, Wire Faces, The Patti Fiasco, The Delta Sonics and several others.

Even before we know who Sunday’s headliner is, this line-up is a very impressive one for this year’s Bohemian Nights at New West Fest. Though, it can be hot in August, and usually is for the New West Fest, and it does get crowded downtown, which means parking far from the festival, there really aren’t any other Colorado cities of comparable size to Fort Collins that have a free festival like this, with such incredible musical performers, so it is usually worth braving it all to get to this event. As we get closer to the New West Fest, I will give a listen to most, if not all, of the artists playing this year, and will post some of my recommendations of artist to catch. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

This is a pretty sweet list of the shows and festivals happening next week, along the Front Range and beyond. I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides these shows, the Coming Attractions page has a more complete list of recommendations for several months to come. The Festival Time page is a fairly complete list of many of the multi-band, and often multi-day festivals in Colorado and some of the surrounding states. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

ADDITIONS TO NEDFEST LINE-UP, INCLUDING LEAKED HEADLINER!!

So a little more than a month ago, I released a post about the preliminary line-up for Ned Fest 2016, which takes place the last weekend of August in Nederland. The initial announcement included Paper Bird, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Roosevelt Collier’s Colorado Get Down feat. Bill Nershi, Melvin Seals & JGB and Taj Mahal. In the last couple of weeks, they made an addition to Sunday afternoon with The String Cheese Incident’s, Keith Moseley and Tyler Grant of Grant Farm, along with Grant Farm’s Kevin McHugh and Christian Teele of the Etown house band. Earlier today, it was released on Facebook that the San Francisco jamband Fletcher’s Grove will be playing in the early afternoon on Saturday, August 27th.

So when I was on Facebook this evening, I saw a post from Steve Kimock, who was thanking Colorado for a good run, last week, but also mentioning a return with Jeff Chimenti, in August for Ned Fest. Steve Kimock is the guitarist behind some amazing live acts, including Zero, Steve Kimock Band, Steve Kimock Crazy Engine, KVHW, Ratdog, Phil Lesh & Friends, and the recent KIMOCK. Jeff Chimenti has played keys with Ratdog, Furthur, ‘Fare Thee Well’ and Dead & Co., so these two musicians are cut from a similar cloth. Who knows who will end-up playing with this pair, but either way, it will promise to make for a stellar Friday night headliner at the 18th Annual Ned Fest. Here are a couple of videos of Steve Kimock to give you a taste of what this year’s Ned Fest will sound like, on day one.

There are still a couple of earlier acts that haven’t been named for Saturday and Sunday of Ned Fest, and there are still tweener and late night sets to be announced. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
