Goodnight, Texas

Goodnight, Texas got a post office in 1888. Some time later, Patrick Dyer Wolf and Avi Vinocur came across each other out in San Francisco and took to learning each other's melodies. Young Avi came from people with deep roots in the skinny part of Maryland. Young Patrick was out west to seek thrills but after a year or two he went east to find fortune and love in the Carolinas. Before he left, they put some songs to tape, and kept in touch.

They met again on the east coast and then the west coast, picking up steam and band members. They played in earnest. "A Long Life of Living" is the product of their travels, their whispers and roars, their sounds made with steel and wood, and the echo of our country's past and the town of Goodnight, exactly halfway between their current residences (if you take I-40.)

The Dollhouse Thieves

A multi-instrumental Denver project that blends elements of neo-rock with indie-folk using jazz-influenced vocals and unconventional instruments

The Ghost Of Joseph Buck

The Ghost of Joseph Buck is a Denver band, for sure. The band was formed in Denver and all its members live here. But the band’s heart, its music, encompasses the entirety of the American West mythos.

On the band’s second EP, “Scenic,” The Ghost of Joseph Buck continues to pepper simple yet strong music with Western motifs like a barroom piano, the occasional organ and mariachi horns. But this time they brought along the ballsiness of rock with guitar moments that almost cross over into hard rock.

Despite wandering towards rock, Polly Beck’s vocals and lyrics on “Scenic” maintain consistency with the band’s previous, self-titled EP. Beck, who founded the band along with husband Joe Franzen back in 2011, has a somewhat low, populist voice that’s more powerful than pretty. It’s the perfect voice for carrying lyrics about outlaws, lost loves, struggles, and other Western themes like murderers and preachers.

All this talk about the West will likely lead you to expect something specific, but The Ghost of Joseph Buck do well avoiding outright nostalgia and cliche. The West is an inspiration, a launching point and not a handbook for the band’s music. - Hey Reverb
