Disguise the Silence
Disguise the SilenceRemove the production value from what you hear on the radio these days. Strip away the meaningless lyrics, the stolen melodies, and the catchy beat to distract you from the lack of substance, and what do you have? Silence. We refuse to disguise it, and choose instead to fill it with honesty. Its an honor to share these songs with you.

The Photo Atlas - 7" Release Show
The Photo Atlas - 7The Photo Atlas is a high-powered, enterprising alternative rock band hailing from Denver, Colorado. Melding together the fast tempo and blistering guitars of punk rock, with the undeniable edginess of indie rock and the perfectly punctual melodies of dance rock, The Photo Atlas truly delivers one of the most unique sounds in the industry. Top that off with intelligent and thought-provoking lyrics belted out by Andrews’ one-of-a-kind voice and you have an absolutely unstoppable band. Formed in 2004, the band is the creation of longtime childhood friends and gifted musicians Andrews, Threlkeld, and Hawkins, whose only goal was to create and share the music that dwelled in their souls. After experimenting with different drummers, the band solidified its lineup with the addition of Taylor at the beginning of 2011 and The Photo Atlas has never sounded better.
A do-it-yourself band in the purest sense of the words, The Photo Atlas has never required the assistance of anyone else in the industry. A stint on Stolen Transmission Records in 2007 saw the release of their first full length album "No, Not Me, Never" and the band busted out on to the national scene. Shortly after the label went under, and the band had no problem returning to its independent roots. Playing by their own rules, sticking to their tough musical standards, and never compromising their art or passion, the men of The Photo Atlas can proudly say that they have consistently and unfalteringly followed their hearts throughout their entire career- and it has paid off. In 2009 they released the cleverly titled "To Silently Provoke The Ghost" EP which received a hard-to-beat four star review in Alternative Press magazine.
The Photo Atlas has received countless awards and recognitions, both regionally and nationally, including snagging a spot on SXSW’s “Best 100 Bands to Watch” compilation; being featured as the Band Of The Day on Spin.com; getting listed in AP Magazine’s “22 Best Underground Bands That Won’t Stay Underground For Long”; being chosen as one of the top 100 “Feed the Beat” bands by Taco Bell; winning Westword’s “Best Post Punk Band” four years in a row; and becoming a finalist in KTCL’s Hometown For The Holidays. The Photo Atlas has also performed numerous times at the famed SXSW Music Conference in Austin and CMJ in New York, as well as at the Winter X-Games, Mile High Music Festival, Monolith Music Festival, and Vans Warped Tour. In addition, the charismatic artists have shared the stage with powerhouse bands such as Jet, The Bravery, Portugal. The Man, Neon Trees, Tokyo Police Club, and many, many more.
2012 included three extraordinary shows at SXSW, during which the band dazzled every last person in Austin, the band continued on to complete an incredible east coast tour. Touted for their magnificent live performance, The Photo Atlas never disappoints an audience, giving every show 110% and leaving nothing behind on stage but shoe scuffs and sweat drops. The band came back to Colorado and finished up their brand new full length album, "Falling For A Honeytrap", which will unleash some of their fastest, boldest, most dance worthy tracks to date. Delving into the world of synthesizers and keyboards, the new music of the Photo Atlas takes a walk on the darker side, while still retaining the fun, upbeat attitude of records past. Due for release early 2013. The band also was awarded the Independent Music on Tour program from the state of Colorado. Now with the state behind them, the forthcoming release, coupled with a daring new music video and an undoubtedly packed tour schedule, 2013 promises to crystalize The Photo Atlas’ dominant position in the music scene and ensure ever-growing success.

Sound Studies
Sound StudiesSOUND|STUDIES is a Colorado Springs, CO based rock band. Motivated creatively by a wide variety of acts ranging from Randy Newman to Rage Against The Machine. SOUND|STUDIES has a very diverse set of influences that all have one thing in common – catchy hooks and raw, unfiltered lyrics.

Brandon Metz and Ryan May began making music together in 1995 – before they were even able to drive. Addicted to writing music, the two amassed a large collection of songs in their first 6 years of playing together in their original band, leer. Disbanding in 2001, the two would continue to play music in different parts of the country, eventually returning to Colorado Springs in 2012 where they would form their next musical project, SOUND|STUDIES in August of 2012.

Best described as a rock band with alternative roots, SOUND|STUDIES music is dynamic. Overdriven guitars may populate one song while the next features slow, tremolo laced riffs. Brandon’s lyrics are clever, emotional and often peppered with sarcasm. Each song tells a story, many are true, some are fiction – all inspired by life. Currently performing as a three-piece, their live sound is full, powerful and articulate.

The band is finishing it’s debut EP titled “late nights, early mornings” that it will release in December of 2013.

They decided to see if that sweet smelling green liquid would do them any better.They broke in and with no hesitation decided to induldge... After being so wasted and blinded by the louies anchovies and jalapeno pizza, toxic sweetness, and massive amounts of weed..named after the medieval chess player himself, they failed to realize the outbreak. Their party time was ruined.

We Are Not A Glum Lot
We Are Not A Glum LotWe Are Not a Glum Lot is a 4 piece alternative rock group from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Each member is quite young and can't legally be recognized as an adult. They began playing together in July of 2010. The band is known for their high energy live performances, as well as a spot on execution of their music which they love to create. Their sound is very unique, with help from a violin playing complex, yet beautiful melodies and harmonies, a bass that loves to play hearty chords, drums that play dead on rhythms that will drop your jaw, a guitar that plays warm, tasteful riffs and progressions, and vocals that cant help but remind one of classic alt rockers, like Yo La Tengo, or the Violent Femmes. The band is comprised of Zac Blum (bass guitar), Colin Foxwell (Violin), Sam Erickson (Vocals and Guitar) and John Carey (Drums). They've played shows with some respectable names in music, including Tim Kasher (the frontman of Cursive), Darron Hanlon, and O'death. The band has an extremely wide array of influences, including, but certainly not limited to, The Smiths, Maps and Atlases, Guided by Voices, Foals, the Strokes, The Pixies, the National, the Violent femmes, and many, many more. In an article in the Colorado Springs Independent, We Are Not a Glum Lot was said to "drop some damn fine jazzed-up (indie/pop)² + ([math] x rock), kinda like a (Mars Volta – 10 yrs x LSD), with a more palatable vocal theory that just screams out '80s art/punk/wave." After the band played a show at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, a pleased crowd-goer said that We Are Not a Glum Lot is doing "exactly what the local music scene in Colorado Springs needs. They're bringing something new to the table and it's awesome." Colin, Sam, Zac, and John are all great friends, and love making music together, but at the end of the day, they realize that it is all in the name of 1 thing.. creating something they love with their friends!


MtnsRyan, Garrett, and Duncan began writing music together in many different bands, with many different names, during high school. After spending the winter laying the ground work for Mtns, they picked up Anthony Ganis (ex-Warrington Station) on bass guitar, completing the lineup for Mtns.
