Cotton Jones

Monday, February 7, hi-dive, 720-570-4500.

Michael Nau and Whitney McGraw used to be members of the acclaimed indie-pop group Page France, and what was once called the Cotton Jones Basket Ride was a side project. When the members of Page France parted ways in 2008, Nau and McGraw continued as a duo, making music that, while rooted in a lush, folky sound, sounded not fragile so much as expansive, like a lounge band in a Wes Anderson movie. The luminously hazy feel of much of Cotton Jones' most recent material is reminiscent of Edith Frost's penchant for capturing late-night introspection: Shimmering atmospheres rim warm compositions that swirl around Nau's vivid, poetic imagery. Touring in support of Tall Hours in the Glowstream, Cotton Jones impressively evokes a reverential mood in the context of a pop song.
