The Lumineers on “Letterman,” listen to new Flashlights, ATO to release John Denver tribute, more music news

It’s getting to the point where you can’t turn on FM radio without hearing “Ho Hey.” It’s very much like that one Gotye song that was pummeled into submission across the country several months ago. The Lumineers have already conquered almost every late night outlet. Next on the checklist: Opening  for the serenaders of brahs everywhere, Dave Matthews Band. Your next chance to see the Looms in Denver will be during their two day stint at the Ogden Theatre, Dec. 30-31.

Flashlights get gussied up with “Scarves”

Flashlights mesmerized throngs of new fans opening for New Order at the 1stBank Center earlier this month (check out Reverb’s review here). The duo just released a new single, “Scarves,” scheduled to be part of the upcoming “Static Spectrum” compilation from Purr Tapes. Look for an accompanying video to the single to hit the webz Oct. 31.
