I heard of Denali for the first time thanks to the Rock Against Bush comp. back in 2004. After that I got completely into Denali and The Instinct and then moved on to Ambulette and the other projects around this. Ten years later I find a couple songs of Maura with Ki:Theory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj3HhA4D5nY, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2idF03MeaY) and I'm hooked up again! This was such a great band, truly wish they brought up something new.
Albums released by Jade Tree in 2002: "Denali" by Denali, "Perfecting Loneliness" by Jets to Brazil, "Visitor" by onelinedrawing, "Control" by Pedro the Lion, "wood/water" by The Promise Ring, "The Emergency Response" by Despistado..."This Was Meant to Hurt You" by These Arms Are Snakes and "So Much Staying Alive and Lovelessness" by Joan of Arc in early '03.
Here's hoping for an album out of this reunion. 'Denali' and 'The Instinct' were two powerful, smouldering albums filled with excellent song writing and Davis' voice is a wonderfully expressive and powerful instrument. After the disappointment of Ambulette being buried by 'the business' it would be good to hear them on record again. And they're Virginian — what more could you want?
my favorite band, always....
my daughter no born yet, even in mind
