In late 2009 Something Like Sound released Colorado Sounds, a compilation of music from the Centennial State. Two years later Colorado Sounds Volume 2 is making its debut with an expanded roster and greater diversity of sound. The new release comes just weeks before Denver bands and fans swarm Austin, TX for the annual SXSW conference (where download cards for this free compilation will be liberally distributed). Curator Tim Weilert designed this project with one goal in mind: expose people everywhere to the quality and uniqueness of modern music in Colorado.

The Biz: The Ancient Future

by on Mar.09, 2010, under Album Reviews, Downloads

If the recent trends continue, Denver may become a hot-spot for electronic music on the national scene. Among the newest class of artists in the genre is The Biz, a trio consisting of Tim Santos, Phil Buck, and Leigh Bernstein. Their debut full-length The Ancient Future hit the internet just last week and is available on the group’s homepage as a “pay-what-you-want” download.

The Biz manages to maintain a certain organic sound throughout the 70+ minute record. From acoustic-drum and horn samples to non-sampled bass grooves, The Ancient Future feels like a sexy soul record turned sideways. “Infinite Light” and “The NEXUS” stand out as two tracks that are as smooth as they are inventive.
