After gaining a reputation for taste and comprehension with their first three volumes, including a nod in our 2010 Best of Denver issue, the folks at Radio 1190 continue to document the Denver music scene with their fourth installment the Local Shakedown series, a two-disc set that covers a gamut of indie rock, folk, hip-hop and electronica. "We like to diversify what we play," says 1190 general manager Mikey Goldenberg. "And this compilation is a really fun opportunity to pick different sounds that you wouldn't hear on one CD."

Assembled by Radio 1190 staffers Amy Moore-Shipley and Alex Seguin, Local Shakedown Volume 4 is an ideal road map for the Denver music scene, something that could be looked at in a decade's time as a document of our city in 2012.
"We're going to be putting these out more often," says Goldenberg. "as well as putting on more shows to bring attention to the artists and the Denver music scene."
Local Shakedown Volume 4 is available at Twist & Shout, Wax Trax and Atomic Records, as well as Boulder's Absolute VInyl and Albums on the Hill. Or it can be purchased as a digital download at HotCongressRecords.com.
The details of the Local Shakedown Volume 4 release party, slated for Friday, November 30, at the Larimer Lounge, are still being worked out, but you can catch 1190's Pledge Drive Kickoff show, featuring ManCub, Achille Lauro, Colfax Speed Queen and Rubedo, on Thursday, November 1, at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. Tickets for the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m., are $10.
