The Swindlin' Hearts
Music and Shit
Denver Meatpacking Company
Denver Meatpacking Company is a band that is 25 years in the making. It was that long ago that drummer Jerome Bellian and guitarist/singer David Simutis met, while their bands played in the same circles in the college town of Oxford, OH.

The two crossed paths when they were both living in Houston back in 1998. It was a random meeting at a bar with Jerome sending a shot of tequila over, but no music plans were hatched. It wasn't until each had moved to Denver from California -- Jerome from Northern California, David from Los Angeles, when they started playing music together. Bassist Alfred Mueller also relocated to Denver from Los Angeles and was a natural fit for the band, since he'd actually been in the illustrious Karate Pants with David.

The name is a nod to their adopted hometown and Jerome's first job as a butcher, though they decision to name the band DMC was actually left up to their social network; the band put up an online poll and let their friends choose it for them.

The new combo quickly got to work, firing out a dozen tracks in under a month and taking advantage of a large social network of musicians and people in the music business to help bring attention to this project. The friendships included legendary studio wizard Paul Hamann (Pere Ubu, Wild Cherry, James Gang, fIREHOSE, the Black Keys), owner of Suma Recording Studio in Ohio. Hammann engineered the trio's debut, which was recorded and mixed in whirlwind fashtion.

Entropy, the resulting debut album, is a raw batch of straightforward indie rockers that wouldn't have sounded out of place 25 years ago.
So, we're a band that does stuff and plays music. It's a mix of hardcore punk and the 90's grunge sound.
Super-charged energy and wild melodies combine to create a vibrantly thrashing & gnarly style
of alternative-rock in Stereoshifter. With gripping rhythms and heavy grooves organically designed to blend bold pop-instincts in the writing alongside intense musicianship & vocals that truly captivate – Stereoshifter is making a massive impression with their new material and ready
to charge into 2017.

Creating sounds with thick, rich & meaty riffs that have the crunch and power to rival any band
out there in the rock-music scene today – Stereoshifter is comprised of the extreme talents of just two men based out of Denver, Colorado: Josh Cal (Vocals, Guitars) and Peter Higgins (Drums). What they lack in physical numbers and band members, they gain in their enormous sound and songs written to create a lasting, memorable impact that thrives & survives on playlists worldwide.

With a dynamic depth of sound that’s truly extraordinary for a two-piece band, Stereoshifter has a seriously inviting-vibe ingrained within the intensity of their style of indie/alt-rock that makes their music highly accessible to all. Consistently challenging themselves to create a confident, committed sound that draws people in through its sincerity and authenticity – Stereoshifter makes music that people truly connect with in an identifiable style that draws from an underground 90’s grunge-rock influence with a modern electric-energy that keeps their sound
completely relevant today.

Following the release of their Dumb Luck EP (2016) – the alt-rock duo from Denver continues to push the limits and continues to write, record and create new music at every given opportunity.
With a brand-new single “All I Can Stand” set to be released in early 2017 – Stereoshifter is set
to dominate speaker-systems and live-stages throughout the next year & beyond. Armed with
the intense & pounding drums from Peter and the grinding guitar melodies from Josh – the band
is in the process of writing their strongest material to-date. Dedicated & committed to bringing their very best to the stage & the studio – Stereoshifter is set & ready to take hold of their own moment in time and make their mark in the Colorado music scene.
