3/24/2008 - Silverhawk



Beginning in 1992 as a folk duo from Coos Bay, OR, the Densmore Bros. released 3 full length cassettes, 4 full length CDs, 1 EP, and multiple singles. For most of the 90s they were based in Olympia, WA and became known for the tribal no wave jams of Slow Children and Frequency db. Over 1,000 tour dates with NW greats such as Frank Black, Screaming Trees, The Posies, and Richmond Fontaine inform their charismatic stage presence. Silverhawk has nationally released one EP (Flowers in June, Pop Sweatshop, 2001), one video (Keeping it Surreal, Mastan Music, 2001). and one full length CD (Westward, Blue Eyed Crow, 2004) Both CDs have attracted national press attention including reviews in CMJ, Delusions of Adequecy and Amplifier Magazines. In 2008, Silverhawks 3rd release, 'Hangover Bicycle Ride' is the Densmore Bros 5th CD release and studio masterpiece. 3 years in the making, it represents a new phase in their collaboration thats especially apparent in their blending of studio trickery, wry humor and the warmth of early rockabilly and classic rock influences (i.e Lee Hazlewood, T. Rex). Preceding its release, Hangover has been aired on Oregon Public Broadcasting and over 20 Live 365 internet radio stations, and podcasts.
