Porlolo
Porlolo
Porlolo is a true labor of love, with good friends finding peace and party times through musical connection. Formed in Denver in 2002 by the eccentric and prolific Erin Roberts, Porlolo has been a highly collaborative project. Roberts—a self-defined sister, swimmer and stunt artist—is a powerful songwriting force, cranking out grungy, sometimes twangy, often pure pop hits. Over her last 15 years of deliberate wandering through Denver, Gunnison, Eugene and most recently Fort Collins, Roberts draws inspiration from the dramatic landscapes and even more dramatic personalities.

Porlolo releases Awards on April 27, produced and engineered by James Barone (Beach House). Players include Anna Morsett (The Still Tide, Brent Cowles), Jake Miller (Esmé Patterson, The Still Tide, Brent Cowles), Tom Mohr, James Barone (Beach House), and Pat Meese (Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats).

Awards showcases Roberts’ thoughtful and playful songwriting, fully supported by the talent of her influential friends and bandmates. Says Roberts of her current lineup, “Porlolo has been an incredibly powerful force in my own life, providing equal amounts of sanity and absurdity, keeping it weird when life gets tedious, heavy and too adult.”

Porlolo discography includes What Would This Be For (2002), Storm and Season (2004), Meadows (2006), Pony Trekk (split EP with Kate Magnus, 2009). In December of 2014, Porlolo released Everything, Barely, a three-song EP produced and recorded by James Barone (Beach House). Erin Roberts also released Fill Your Lungs (2012) with the Denver-based band Ending People.

Porlolo has extensively toured the US, playing alongside Jessica Lea Mayfield, Cass McCombs, Destroyer, Magnolia Electric Company, Fleet Foxes, Phosphorescent, Two Gallants and more.
Spirettes
Spirettes
Originally named after the band’s lead guitarist “Katey Sleeveless,” the power trio Spirettes (Kate Perdoni [guitar/vocals], Kellie Palmblad [bass/vocals], and Emily Gould [drums/vocals]) formed in Colorado Springs in spring 2017. The ethereal guitar-driven rock, supported by pop structures and sprinkled with myriad ghostly female vocals, launched a unique sound, style, and collaboration which quickly garnered interest and local notoriety.

Perdoni and Palmblad joined forces in 2015 through a mutual friend, embarking on musical collaborations in several pre-established projects. The two found immediate synergy, blending their musical tastes, writing styles, and aesthetics with reverb-heavy, atmospheric, layered soundscapes and vocals. Perdoni’s work in a previous project, Eros and the Eschaton (Bar/None Records), was richly accentuated by Palmblad’s vocal composition style from former experimental bands including Eyes Caught Fire. Perdoni and Palmblad, seeking to solidify their team, brought on drummer and vocalist Emily Gould. Armed with Gould’s keen sophistication and versatility -- informed by 18 years of playing in a variety of projects -- the group’s sound elevated to a hard-hitting power trio. Their combined creativity and emotive writing quickly cemented a foundation for the band’s forceful, raw, and lush expression of the female experience.
Land Lines
Land Lines
Land Lines is an impossible decade, some gap in history where the tines of early electric pianos shimmer in echo chambers, baroque cellos thrum minor chords, and modern percussive rhythms build with surgical precision, all culminating in sparing, angular pop melodies that find new creative spaces in an otherwise overpopulated musical landscape.

Land Lines arose from the ashes of Matson Jones, when Martina Grbac, Anna Mascorella, and Ross Harada, regrouped and began crafting new songs. After releasing their self-titled LP, Land Lines, on Denver’s Cash Cow Records, Anna left the group to attend graduate school; James Han, who had been recording and touring with Nathaniel Rateliff and Gregory Alan Isakov, joined and helped shape the new sonic direction of the band.

Land Lines has performed at venues such as the Gothic Theater, Boulder Theatre, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and most recently performed their own songs with The Colorado Symphony at Boettcher Concert Hall. Land Lines has shared the stage with artists such as DeVotchka, Nathaniel Rateliff, Esme Patterson and Black Heart Procession.

THE NEW ALBUM

In early 2014, Land Lines recruited Xandy Whitesel to record/mix and TW Walsh (Sufjan Stevens, The Shins, David Bazan) to master a second LP, The Natural World, which will be released by Misra Records on August 21st, 2015. With sultry songs that saunter, thrust, and linger, The Natural World is a treasure trove of heart breaking songs of love, loss, and human nature and ushers in the next era of Land Lines’ sonic exploration.
