Best Albums of 2018

  One of the most unique albums of the year. Heavily psychedelic, at times bass-drenched, at other times very soothing. All over the place but in a good way. Reminds me a little bit of Tipper but with a dash of Anomalie. Extraordinarily interesting electronic...

Michal Menert & the Pretty Fantastics at Summit Denver

You know what I'm thankful for today? Michal fricken Menert. I'm perpetually grateful that this dude is still out there doing what he's done since day one -- making the realest music out. Not only did the Godfather of Electro-Soul drop a new album this past Friday, he...

Walker & Royce at Summit

The second set started with two covers from Pink Floyd's The Wall, "In the Flesh" and "Another Brick in the Wall." "Stinko's Ascension," a guitar frenzied song that first debuted in 2014, the band ran studio length on a somewhat ordinary version of "Wife Soup"...

Lotus is at the top of their game right now

I’ve been a Lotus fan since college. I think I found them in 2005 or 2006. They were actually my first introduction to the jam scene, along with STS9.
