Shhh…don’t tell anyone: Eli Thomas is not from the coast.  From listening to Worry Toobs, his lo-fi surf offering under the name Balue you’d never know that he hails from Denver.  His leisurely distorted guitar and sunset sweet lyrics perfectly capture the essence of the beachy coastal lifestyle.  The album cover works great for Eli and Balue, giving a double exposure photo nod to the surfy life while staying in the Denver saddle.
