Young Coyotes to release pair of EPs next month

Young Coyotes have been together less than a year, but in that short time, the

act has already embarked on an extensive cross country tour, attracted a high powered manager

in Blee Music's Brian Swartz (Rose Hill Drive), and, most noteworthy,

generated a substantial buzz locally.

In what literally seemed like

milliseconds after forming, the band went from playing Saturday

matinee sets at places like Lifespot last summer to garnering envious slots on

choice gigs like Monolith's VIP party and Hot IQs annual holiday

party, which led to them being on the lips of discriminating music fans all over

the city.

Naturally, that sort of attention invites scrutiny, and

already Young Coyotes' success has spurred a bit of a backlash, causingĀ more cynical members of the scene to wonder, somewhat incrediously, what all the fuss is about. Not bad

for a band that didn't even exist this time last year and still doesn't

have a release out -- something the band plans to remedy next month.

On Tuesday, March 10, Young

Coyotes will be releasing a pair of EPs, the fittingly titledĀ Basement EP, which contains songs the outfit recorded in its,

er, basement, and the Exhale

EP, containing all new tracks the group recorded at Boulder's Coupe

Studios. Both of the five-song releases will be available for download

(the former for free on the act's site) beginning on the 10th. If you

haven't already, you can catch Young Coyotes, who are currently on tour

(dates listed below) in a few weeks at Larimer Lounge on

Friday, February 27 for Indie 101.5's one year anniversary party.
