The Longest Day of the Year – Turn into the Ground

By Marlee Keeven
Scrape out the dirty grit encrusted into the soles of your cowboy boots and mix it with the purtiest thing you done heard of, and you’ll get yourself some fine music from local Boulder band The Longest Day of the Year. This alt-country band is full of pleasant surprises. Their sound feels easy, natural and soulful – they have an understated complexity that proves their talent. The album is a well-done synchronicity of tunes reaching from beautiful and melodic to down and dirty. Don’t think you have to like country music to like these guys, either – their songs hit so many different notes and the musicianship is so solid that you’ll want to give The Longest Day of the Year a listen no matter what.
