Talking about ourselves, on camera..... 

Here's a quick note from the Ross!

If you are new to us and our electro-sensual rock & roll than we want to share with you this brand new promotional video we had done for our newest and unreleased EP, "Late Kids." It was done by Lauren Winton of Winton Media which is based right here in Denver, CO. We were very joyous to have the chance to work with her as she has collaborated with two of our favorite Denver acts Land Lines and Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats. 

You can catch the video at our EPK link here on the site or scoot on over to youtube. 

If you are of the Millennial Generation we hope that you have an easy time relating to the overall vibe of this EP. It deals with the heavy dichotomy of being bred to think that one is oh-so-very special while also coming-of-age in a society where realizing one's utter insignificance is a daily occurrence. 

There's a lil' breakdown in the video. 



Talking About Ourselves..... 

The Ross, slackin' on the blogs again! Anyways, here we are now, back to talk about ourselves and use a shit-ton of exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is that gonna fuck up our SEO or some shit!?!?!? nbd 

So we are elated that our Tiny Desk Contest video has been so well received over the past month. We learned today that we were included in a Top 10 runners up out of 6,100 + entries by the All Songs Squad themselves. As listeners of All Songs Considered for many years this means a lot to us so thank you all for watching, commenting, and overall enjoying the video! Check out the article and the other amazing videos here.  We also received some local love from everybody's favorite CO source for new music, Open Air CPR. Check that write-up out here

We also wanted to tell you about that nice news and also say to stay tuned for lots of new ROSS content coming your way. We have some new music in the works, live music videos from our rooftop performance last summer, a sexy animated video for our song, 'Sidewalks', and a DAYTROTTER session to be uploaded soon as well. 

Also, I hope you checked out our videos and the Denver Westword's write-up about our Denver Open Media Foundation session that was recently posted. Check that out here if you haven't. 

I guess what we are trying to say is there is a lot of RossTent (Thats content with the first part of our band name put in front of the word. Now that I read it back it kind of sounds like some sort of boner as well) coming your way over the next few months that we very much hope you like it, love it, and even want more of it.

Tiny Desk Concert Contest 

Hello Frenz, 
After sitting last year's contest out, The Ross decided to make a video for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert 2016 contest. As regular listeners of Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton's All Songs Considered, the thought of having the chance to perform at Bob's actual tiny desk is exhilarating. 

The video features our new song, "Love In A Wasteland" and was filmed in the belfry of the old warehouse building where we have our studio space. We were told that the old motor that you see in the middle of the shot (which is the "tiny desk", if you want it to be) was used for an old freight elevator. The building is over 100 years old. Pretty cool, huh?!?!?!

It was a bit of a process chaining snakes up two flights up stairs, routing all the audio properly, tweaking the ambient mic's just right so you could hear accurately what we actually sounded like in the room, and it took about half-a-day.

We had help from our friends Logan Muckler and Joseph Lamar (dope musicians in their own right) on the engineering side of things and our friend Noah Mittman did all the filming. Everyone did a fair bit of running up and down the stairs. It was fun, educational, and a workout all at once. 

We hope you enjoy the video and we would love to know what you think of the new song. Also, if you make it to the end of the vid then you will see OUR actual tiny desk.

P.S. The train whistle sample at 1:04 is courtesy of the train passing slowly by outside while we filmed. 
P.P.S. I guess technically it was not a sample as it was performed live by the train itself at precisely that moment.

People are chipper here in Denver, CO as our mighty Broncos have inserted themselves, rightfully, into Super Bowl 50. The days are sunny literally and figuratively here in the MIle Hi City. Amidst all the zippidee-doo-dah of last weekend, The Ross was busy filming a live music video to submit for NPR's All Songs Considered Tiny Desk Concert contest so be on the lookout for that in the next week or so. 

We also are anxiously awaiting the posting of our Daytrotter session that we did during our tour last November so you can keep an eye out for that as well. 

I'm sure all of this anticipation leading up to the release of some new Rossonian music is almost unbearable so here is a little jam session that happened before the filming of the TIny Desk vid. Yeah, that's Jackson our drummer shaking away, our boy THE Joseph Lamar on the trap, and our newest collaborator and friend, Danny King on the teclados. 

I miss you all,
