"Sinister" is the word conjured by the new release by Colorado artists Munly & the Lupercalians. Their new CD, Petr & the Wulf gives a dark twist to Prokofiev's classic children's story. Peter ("Petr") and his grandfather ("Grandfater") are there, as well as the duck, the cat, the wolf ("Wulf") and the three hunters. A key member of Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Munly and co have even brewed a "pre-history of Lupercalia" on their MySpace home. Perfect for the upcoming Halloween holidays ...

Also this Episode, we further celebrate another worthy Colorado-related act, Travel By Sea, whose Two States and the Blindness That Follows is one of the strongest releases of the last couple months. Likewise, Thrift Store Cowboys' new effort almost sounds like a new band (in a good way). Lots of good stuff this week!
