True Fort Collins natives, Blue Taboo is band devoid of de nition. Two Worlds is a front of electric and acoustic, emotional and indi erent, strange and ethereal. Jared Janzen highlights the album with an incredible virtuosity on vocals and guitar (check out the instrumental “Dust”), though Drew Miller (bass), Will Brauch (guitar) and Julian Ferrara (percussion) provide a certainly impres- sive backing. The eight-track project carries a feeling of completion, varying widely in its experi- mentation and semblance, from the nostalgia of “Shame Overboard” to the spirit of the vagabond in “Safe Travels”. The talent and production of Two Worlds is assuredly remarkable, let alone for such a young group. Look for Blue Taboo in the coming months in the Front Range area.
