Whew … I can’t believe we’re this close to the end of the year. If you haven’t voted yet, head over to TOP 100 Nominees for Fan Favorites of 2015. I haven’t quite figured out yet how to deal with the isolated batch of singles that came out in the past year .. and I still have the songs of the year to sort through… hopefully in a couple of days so stay tuned for that.
To those who have messaged me over the past few weeks, or who have contributed to the GoFundMe campaign set up by our friend Megan, THANK YOU! I cannot express how much your friendship means to me and Mrs Goat right now.
My wife has an annual thing she does. She and our grand daughter wrote this song several years ago. My wife posts it every Sunday on her FB pg. I thought I’d share it here this week … hoping your family is safe and healthy this holiday season.
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK:
I got introduced to Chemistry Club a couple of years ago when they released songs like “Miranda” and “Navigator.” A SpokesBuzz band, they’ll have a new single out on SpokesBuzz VOL VI, being released DEC 11 at Hodi’s Halfnote in Fort Collins.
MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting)
Somerset Catalog – Lonely Fang (Misra)
Genre/style: indie, rock/pop
Mixes well with Colorado bands: Instant Empire, Achille Lauro, Everything Absent or Distorted (A Love Story), Born In the Flood
Easily one of the best new albums of the new year, and one of the best indie rock/pop albums that’s crossed my desk in the past couple of years. I expect we’ll hear and see more of this outfit in 2016.
