‘Rowdy Love,’ the killer second album from the Americana band Denver, is earning them raves from the press and fellow musicians alike. Denver sold out its hometown (Portland, OR) album release show, which also featured legendary songwriter Michael Hurley on the bill. Next up is an appearance this weekend at Timber! Music Fest, which also features J. Mascis, Charles Bradley, Damien Jurado and Horse Feathers. Additionally, the band will be headlining The Tractor Tavern in Seattle on Sunday night.

“When we BBQ in our driveway, we prefer to do it listening to Denver, the band.” – Shovels & Rope

“Rambunctious… ‘Rowdy Love’ lands somewhere in between icons like Townes Van Zandt and Hank Williams, and modern favorites like Wilco and Blitzen Trapper (whose frontman Eric Earley produced the LP).”
-Laura Leebove, Wondering Sound, July 10, 2014, full album stream

"Rowdy Love is, true to its title, bummed out, hopeful, joyful and conciliatory... For fans of The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams, Guy Clark."
- John Freeman, Country Weekly, June 26, 2014

“Ramshackle but right.”
-Ned Lannamann, Portland Mercury, July 14, 2014

“Dubbing Denver ‘heavy’ would be an understatement. But good country shouldn’t tread lightly. After all, it’s an American institution wallowing in booze and breakups. Drink it in, but expect a hangover.”
-Mark Stock, Willamette Weekly, July 16, 2014

“Glowing… [Music] you’ll want to listen to while drinking a beer in your backyard, thinking deep deep thoughts.”
-Kyle Mitchell, Music Savage, June 25, 2014
