New country done the good old way since 2015. The band members' pedigree reads like a who's who of Denver dive-bar hero musicians (featuring members of The Legendary River Drifters, Dudebabes, The Knew, Ned Garthe Explosion, CrushCraze, Bangtel), but what comes across in the music is four mountain men manifesting Johno Roberts' tales of his native Tennessee and his observations on a changing Colorado.
Hang Rounders' music is best heard on a dance floor, where it is allowed to do its work and get you movin', singin', and bringin' (your sister). Their new album, "Outta Beer, Outta Here," was recorded and mixed in Nashville at The Bomb Shelter by Andrija Tokic and Ed DuQuesne (Alabama Shakes, The Deslondes, Benjamin Booker, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Langhorne Slim) and mastered by John Baldwin (Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Sly Stone). It features guest musicians from several notable Nashville-based acts (Natural Child, Birdcloud, Thunderbitch, Clear Plastic Masks, Lost Dog Street Band, Chrome Pony). "Undeniably American roots music at its finest." -- Brett Callwood, Westword
