Dang! The year's not even over yet and
two three (we stand corrected -- thanks, Lucas) Colorado acts have already been listed on someone's Top 10 list for the year. And not just anyone, but Gorilla vs Bear, Chris Cantalini's highly influential Dallas-based blog.
two three, you ask? Why Gauntlet Hair (which also received a nod on Pitchfork by founder Ryan Schreiber, no less, back in April, bringing the Colorado tally to a half-dozen now, including Woven Hand), Tennis, whose buzz is reaching deafening levels as predicted, and Candy Claws (hopefully that makes the members feel a little better after that horrific fire).
