First Listen: Colorado’s Princess Music

By David Goe

So last weekend I was hanging in Denver with two of my favorite Colorado bands, Bad Weather California and The Knew. Hanging out grilling burgers with Tyler Ludwick, Bad Weather California's lead guitarist and backup vocalist, we started talking about side projects. For Ludwick, Bad Weather California is his side project. His primary focus happens to be Princess Music, a "five piece, all-star cast of classically- trained players, with backgrounds in a spectrum of musical stylings from chamber music to math metal." 

I'd never heard of Princess Music before but I'm glad he brought it up. For the band's upcoming debut album "Odobenidae," Ludwick worked with 4 other musicians plus an orchestra to create a wall of music aimed directly at your heart and your head. The first single "White Wave" reminds me of Sufjan Stevens. It's a complex compesition of lyrics and music that's totally engaging.  

"Music, from the time I started playing it, it's something that has always been very intimate and very emotional," Ludwick said in his Kickstarted campaign video. "It's something that I consider to be very personal. It's the kind of music I try and make." 

The idea of combining indie rock with live orchestration is currently en vogue. Another Colorado based band DeVotchKa, recently played live with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Red Rocks Ampitheater.

Princess Music will debut "Odebenidae" on August 9, 2013 live at the Bluebird Theater in Denver with an orchestra. Check out the first single, "White Wave," below.

Who knew that indie rock combined with live orchestration could sound so good! It’s a brilliant idea and kinda similar to the street pianos in NY performances all year-round. Even if the cause might be different, music will always bring friends and family together, to enjoy some quality time!
