The Denver-based trio Two Face West recently released their debut album, Postcards from Lonely Places, with marvellous funky/bluesy rock output. Let’s find out.

After years of touring and prior releases. The album includes 11 studio tracks and a live version of their 2017 song “Freedom.” It’s a pretty nice beginning indeed from the first track “Ain’t Got A Clue” with an energetic groove and catchy line that easily attracts your attention and makes you easily interested to check the rest of the album. Actually, I loved the vibes of the studio footage video for this track. Even when you explore the rest of the album, you will appreciate its melodic ambience. The band’s commitment to maintaining a vintage style while delivering it within a modern framework is truly admirable.


“Postcards from Lonely Places” was originally started as a 5-song EP intended for an early 2020 release. When Vince Carmellini joined Two Faces West in 2019, 5 additional songs were added, expanding the EP into a full-length album. The eclectic mix of songs showcases input from various songwriters and musicians. What stands out is their commitment to evolving their ideas and striving for excellence. Nowadays, many artists tend to stick to their signature styles over the years, risking losing their fanbase. However, this is not the case with Two Faces West, as they were dedicated to presenting something new and exceptional, which is truly impressive.


Two Faces West ability to blend various musical genres seamlessly is truly commendable, showcasing their versatility and creativity. Each track on the album offers a unique listening experience, taking the audience on a musical journey filled with unexpected twists and turns. The incorporation of brass sections adds an extra layer of depth and richness to the overall sound, creating a dynamic and engaging listening experience.

Furthermore, Carmelli’s bass guitar skills shine through, providing a solid foundation for the eclectic mix of sounds present in the album. Whether you’re a fan of blues, funk, country, or folk music, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in this diverse collection of songs.

“Many of the songs are based on true events, such as Moonshiners, about the secret lives of two brothers on the Eastern plains of Colorado, and the story of the Columbine Mine Massacre in 1927 that took place in the West Boulder Highlands from the perspective of one of the miners that was killed.”Two Faces West explained.

Overall, this latest album is a testament to Two Faces West talent and innovation, proving that music knows no boundaries when it comes to creativity and expression. It’s a celebration of diversity and musical exploration that is sure to captivate listeners from all walks of life.
