This is an entry in an ongoing series for 303 Magazine, which will provide a range of local album reviews. It is our intention to highlight the talents of local musicians, whether veterans to the industry or newcomers. Like the bands, the album can be fresh or something we just haven’t had the power to take off repeat in the past few months. Check out previous entries in the series here.
The Dead & The Daylily are a beautiful example of the masterwork created from the combination of raw musical talent and real, naked emotion. Bringing their dream folk music to Denver, The Dead & The Daylily have stories to share, stories which they tell in their self-titled EP, The Dead & The Daylily — produced by Joe Richmond. The EP is a first for the band, whose five members played their official first show together last July at the Underground Music Showcase. What started as a duo between Hannah Alzugaray and Russell Brozovich turned into an indefinable five-piece who have created their own version of dream folk.
