Dressy Bessy : 20 years of delightful, colorful and super playful indie rock—this legendary Denver based band keeps having fun . Indeed, the new 13-song KINGSIZED makes it clear that, nearly 20 years into their career, Dressy Bessy are making some of their most compelling and accomplished music. Such melodically infectious, lyrically barbed new tunes as “Lady Liberty,” “Make Mine Violet” and the anthemic title track are potent examples of the band's uncanny ability to wrap Ealom's personally-charged, pointedly subversive lyrics in sparkling, irresistibly catchy songcraft. In addition to showcasing the band's musical chemistry, KINGSIZED also draws upon the talents of a wide assortment of friends, admirers, and contemporaries. R.E.M's Peter Buck adds distinctive 12-string guitar on “Lady Liberty” and “Cup ‘O Bang Bang,” while legendary Pylon frontwoman Vanessa Briscoe-Hay adds her voice to “Get Along (Diamond Ring).”
Post Street Rhythm Peddlers: Evoking the seductive sound of 1920's New Orleans prohibition era jazz, the Post Street Rhythm Peddlers are the seven-piece culmination of piano, banjo, drums, bass, and a combo of trumpet, clarinet, trombone, violin, with sassy female vocals at the helm. This distinctively high-energy crew lures their audience back in time through the Southern boulevards into a world of sinnin', salvation, and bathtub gin, revisiting a place where the hardships of life are cause for a high-spirited musical celebration.
