If you’re unfamiliar with the up and coming website Bolderbeat, then now is as good a time as any to check it out.  Kicking off in late 2015, Bolderbeat is shining a much needed light on the Boulder music scene.  In it’s most recent piece, and arguably one of it’s best written pieces, contributor Pete Laffin talks about the state of indie folk music, and where our band fits in to this movement.  He also reviews our new EP ‘Into Frames‘, which received over 1,000 listens on our soundcloud page in the first 2 weeks.  Check out the whole article right here!

“It’s just absurd that the majority of this album was tracked live with minor overdubbing”

Augustus-IntoFramesEP-Cover

That’s a quote from the latest issue of the Marquee Magazine.  The Marquee is monthly publication about all things music in Colorado and they just reviewed our second EP, “Into Frames.”  They called it “wonderful” and said that it’s “..an excellent blend of tunes and an album that deserves and uninterrupted listen.”  They gave it 4 out of 5 stars! Check out the full review right here, and be sure to pick up a copy of the Marquee every month to stay on top of Colorado musical happenings.

Summer update!

fox marquee

Well friends, it’s been a crazy few weeks in the Augustus camp.  First off, we played the biggest show our career at the Fox Theatre which was by far the most exhilarating experience the 3 of us have every had.  We worked our asses off to let you all know about the show and even created a fun little promotional video about said show and a behind the scenes series about the “making of” this delightful little video.  We were overwhelmed with the number of people that showed up and we’ve never heard that level of volume of applause from any other show previous.  Joe Friend Photography was there to catch some great shots (which are now sliding across the top of our website!), and Bolderbeat was there to give us a shoutout.  It was truly memorable!

AND while preparing for that show, we have been back and forth to our favorite high mountain studio in Leadville to finish up recording our second album titled, Into Frames EP.  The recording process is a “roller coaster of emotions” to quote our cellist, (see the “making of” our previous album) and this time around was no different.  All the previous months of pre-production and demo-ing our songs at our home studio paid off and we are proud to say that our second EP is complete and will be released this summer!

We’re now back in the swing of playing shows around the area and have a pretty full schedule lined up this summer including some great Denver shows, and new cities like Grand Junction.  It’s been an amazing few months, and we’re excited to see what the rest of this summer brings!  Stay tuned, we can’t wait to show you what’s about to come out!
