Take the hazy, heavy-lidded beauty of Mazzy Star and cross-wire it with the shady, shadowy balladry of Beach House and you’ve come close to approximating the sound of Denver’s Shady Elders. The key word there is “close,” though: Shady Elders are more confident, more forthright and sturdy. Fox Rodemich’s voice has an undeniable sense of authority, and while the guitars ripple behind her like some sort of mirage, her presence is full, fleshed-out, powerful. “The Night Air” is a luau lullaby, lapping gently like the sea at sundown, and Rodemich is the bold voice on the shore, beckoning the boats back home.
