Today, Denver-based group Blake Brown & The American Dust Choir shares the second track off their debut LP Long Way Home. “Between The Lines” was released exclusively via Atwood Magazine, who writes, “Blake sings ‘Between the Lines’ with his spouse Tiffany Brown, to offer a subtle mystery and sadness that hides in the heart of the song. Their partnered vocals align with each other perfectly, helping to maintain the mystery that keeps the song feeling constantly fresh.”
“The concept of the video for “The Other Side” came about over a bar chat with its director, Spencer Balliet. The song is about the metaphor of being haunted, how that manifests, and connecting to the “land of the dead” through connection with the living. The video is an interpretation of the song’s discussion about fear, feeling trapped, then facing the ‘other side’, which is portrayed through the simple progression of the day, mixed with gradual movement from nature to the more built and final urban landscape. Despite all our intent and concept, the final result seems like a simple suggestion that the ‘other side’ is not necessarily without, but within.”
The Nectars “I Want It”
The band described the track to New Noise Magazine saying, “I Want It” is 2 mins of scorching, garage rock emotion. As a band we always like to toy with power dynamics and thought a woman demanding sex would be jarring to chauvinist ideals. With that in mind we needed to write a song encapsulating the feeling of being stoned, late at night, post show, covered in sweat, eager to fulfill our own physical desires.”

Batey explains to Billboard that “Petrified” is “a song about being afraid of the future…I’ve struggled with anxiety my whole life, and I was feeling especially afraid and anxious about what the future holds.” He goes on, “I don’t think I’m super old or anything, but a lot of people around me in my life are kind of quitting music and making families and doing other stuff.
