Talk Talk: Leftover Salmon reunites, Denver Noise Festival gets loud, Kissing Party goes old school, more music newsBy Julio Enriquez | March 28th, 2012 | 1 Comment »
After a surprise get together at the SnowBall Music Festival (check out Reverb’s coverage here) and a few other one-offs, Leftover Salmon had the “Let’s get the band together” talk and has not only put together some tour dates, but a new album. The release, “Aquatic Hitchhikers,” will hit the streets May 22. It only took eight years for the guys to get it together. Next time, let’s not take so long, eh?
Take to the Oars does a lot of “Bar Talk”
The venue used in the “Bar Talk” video from Take to the Oars may look a little familiar. That’s because it’s everyone’s favorite East Colfax haunt, the Bluebird Theater. The single is off the band’s latest album “American Volume” and you can catch the guys with Vices I Admire this Friday, March 30 at the Marquis Theater.

Kissing Party plays “the Game”
Sure, many people have been using those 8mm phone apps to shoot videos, but you don’t see many VHS video recorders around. In fact, I remember how tired you used to get after schlepping one around for a couple of hours. Kissing Party shot its latest video on a VHS tape for the single “The Game” off last year’s “Wasters Wall” release. The damaged video footage works as a perfect match with the delicately loud track. And in case you missed it, check out the Steal This Track from Kissing Party over here.
