Best bet of the week on the live circuit goes down on Saturday when the Denver Boot headlines a CD release party for their debut, 6 to 9, 7 . . . 12. Singer-songwriter (and guitar/banjo/ harmonica man) William Moretti is the creative force behind the band, which he bills as "moody folk with a touch of country picking, and hold the phony accent." This album is pretty darn special from start to bonus track finish. Pick up a copy (or download) at cdbaby.com right now.

Moretti handed over a copy of the new disc last week during our music awards bash at the Met, where the Denver Boot was nominated for Best Roots Act (and finished a close second to the Sugar Honey Iced Tea). Similar to work by kindred locals Brown Bird and Joe Fletcher, 6 to 9, 7 . . . 12 is another must-hear collection of indie-folk/roots/blues/Americana. A slew of friends chipped in, including the sharp rhythm section of John Viveiros (upright bass) and Sean Brown (drums), who gets the gallop going on the opener "I Disagree." Violinist Diane O'Connor and go-to slide guitarist Mike Samos are a perfect fit for Moretti across the album, notably on "Sensible Man," where he laments, "Left you amongst the wolves in sheep's clothing/I did my best to warn you." Things get cooking on the feisty personal favorite "Cold Water," where Moretti heats up: "If I'd treat you better would it have changed today? You made up your mind, don't tease that you will stay/It's just fool's gold." (And check out Brown Student Radio ā€” bsrlive.com ā€” for an excellent Denver Boot duo set recorded last week with Moretti and O'Connor.)
