Oh, this is gonna be a good summer, we can feel it …

The Denver music scene is always on fire, but now that summer is right around the corner, it's hitting maximum temps. Local artists around the city are preparing for warmer seasons by delivering their original summer jams. We decided to take a stroll through the city and bring back the best of what we heard. Some rock, some hip hop, and some in between, make up our newest Listen Locally list. Crack open a cold one and enjoy!

Splyt – "Deal With It (ft. Marc Goone)"

Splyt is gearing up for the May 28th drop of his new album The S Project, which is the same night Splyt and Songsbyh will headline their own release party at Cervantes Otherside. In preparation, the Colorado native dropped “Deal With It” and flexed his muscles alongside Marc Goone. The gritty track is full of energy and only makes us more excited for the full release.


Scatter Gather – "What More?"

Scatter Gather, if you're unfamiliar, is a local band that's just about impossible to describe. It's a mixture of spunk, weird, rock, soul, and everything good. The video for “What’s More” matches the eclectic vibe perfectly, with all of the craziness that we love in Denver rock music. Keep an eye out for Scatter Gather as they continuee to put Denver on the map with a unique sound.


Doze – "Free Love"

Rapper and producer Doze bring the love with a new release “Free Love” off of a project he’s working on now. This smooth offering is light, self-aware and features some very quotable lyrics. Doze continues to produce quality music and has been on the rise for a while now. He will be joining Splyt and Songsbyh on May 28th, so make sure you keep your eyes out for more Doze!


Callie Belo – "Weightless"

Callie is about to release her new EP and just released the title track “Weightless”, which has us looking forward to next week's date. Electric and triumphant, “Weightless” showcases Callie’s ability to carry a song at some points and be carried by it at others. 


The FAMM – "Jockin featuring Chillville"

The FAMM, fuck, listen to this right here. Quick, low-tempo, dark and slightly creepy, "Jockin" is reminiscient of an old-school Triple-Six or a time before Tech N9ne went all Juggalo and weird. What's best, is you can actually understand what they're spitting — a long lost talent of seasoned vets. 


M.O.A. – "999 LBS [prod. Cribb$]"

Given to us as a present from M.O.A. to celebrate 4/20, "999 LBS" is a cruise track. Pack a blunt tight, get out on a patio and crank this one up, we dare you not to zone out and get lost through time. We fuck with this.
