Hearsay bits: Mansfields, Hello Kavita, Whygee & Sunkenstate, DJ Klaw and more

New music: The Mansfields, who just completed a tour with the Queers, will be recording a new album in Atlanta, and Joe Queer will be reportedly producing it. Hello Kavita has posted three new songs ("Sunday," "To a Loved One" and "Ok") on its MySpace page from the forthcoming album the outfit has been recording at Colorado Sound. Wowzers. From what we've heard so far, it should be a solid record. Whygee (due on Mile Hi-Fidelity tonight) and Sunkenstate, who previously collaborated on Suicide Watch, a seven-song EP that charted on CMJ, have released a pair of brand new records, Suicide Watch 2: Sambodextrust and Abracadaver, that they've made available for free download. DJ Klaw has likewise released Bangers2Bang2, a new mix for your downloading pleasure.

Dearly departed: Wakely, a Colorado Springs-based quartet and Class of

2009 alumn, has reportedly called it a day. No word on what caused the

split. Rough Draft, who just released a new EP recorded by American Idol finalist Chris Sligh in Nashville called It'll Be Alright, has also reached its natural end. Although the act has dates booked through February of next year, things will come to a close for the band at in the next few weeks, with frontman Andrew Witt continuing on as a solo act. For the Love of Ivy will be playing its last Denver show ever

under its current configuration on Saturday, August 8, at the Marquis

Theater. Beau Osland, who is moving to San Diego for college, says he

plans to reform the band out there. Ivy will be joined on the bill by

Air Dubai, of whom Osland is also a member, Effektor, Broke City and

Golden Ticket. While it hasn't been pronounced dead yet, the outlook

doesn't look hopeful for One Eyed Jacks on 4th and Sante Fe, who was robbed

again. Word has it, the Kingdom of Magic/Minsk show this past Monday

may have been its last.

Goes to show: The ReMINDers, the hip-hop act from Colorado Springs

which has generated a sizable buzz in hip-hop circles, are slated to play two Denver

shows this week, one tonight at Herman's Hideaway and the other at the

Dragon Boat fest this Sunday from 4-4:30 p.m. On Saturday, July 25,

meanwhile, Spare the Legion is playing a gig at Bushwackers Saloon with

Better Left Unsaid, Wireframe and Beast of Milwaukee. The gig will be

the outfit's last for a while, as it takes a break to record its new

album, which it be playing songs from. Finally, set your calendars for

the welcome return of d.biddle. While no venue has been announced (smart money

is on the hi-dive), the outfit will evidently be performing on

Halloween for its annual Días de los Muertos show.
