At the beginning year, the Brass Tree Collective glorious sprung up unexpectedly from the frozen Front Range tundra, and for the past six months, the collective has bloomed into an exciting part of the Denver scene, from hosting last minute, word-of-mouth house shows featuring acts like Jens Lenkman and Ume to inviting locals like Hot White, Hindershot and the Don'ts and Be Carefuls in to do their thing while the cameras roll. Episode 5, latest video in the series, was filmed in the heat of summer and features sets from Force Publique, School Knights and Fingers of the Sun. Have a look below.
