: --On Naima's Grass Pajamas, Paul Riola's Bottesini Project has assembled something of a dream lineup, including guitar legend Nels Cline of Wilco, bassist Keenan Wayne, CacheFlowe, Janet Feder and Glenn Taylor. The musicians recorded a day's worth of improvisations, then Riola and Colin Bricker spent many additional hours in the studio assembling the final product. "We collaged a lot of the sessions together, so we could form what we thought was a coherent narrative of the improvisations," Riola explains. "The album is not a stamped-out document of the improvisations. We really took a musique concrete approach to it.... read on here. Thanks Cory Casciato

Saturday night was a busy bit of brightness in my life. After dinner at the always delectable, Cuba Cuba, I witnessed a performance worthy of its own mantra, set aside to glimmer out the glam and poke fun at summer reading programs. Fruit Bats assaulted the Larimer stage with glee and function, marked by a keen ear for subtle detail and oh-so-catchy folds of beach-y tingles. Gliding through old and new tracks leading to some surprise attacks, covering INXS's "never tear us apart." Fruit Bats are happy, popped-up and full, eating away at your inability to dance like a fashion star, gnawing on your little ticklish audio parts and sucking on your vocal chords for a bit of choral sing alongs. Their strength grows in dynamic numbers, pushing out solid glimpses of quality workmanship like tiny elves quickly building sno-globes to pass out on their journey around the world. Transforming to plastic embryos, then to cardboard clownshoes, while covering themselves in emotional ash and hooking big-mouthed gems all the way up the river. Fruit Bats don't throw large stones at audience faces, nor challenge themselves to ride in styro-foam coolers...they are thoughtful acroBats, with a big golden tent, shining brighter than most in this damp cyclical world. -dk check out their sub pop bio here. or their main site here.
