Colorado Playlist S10 EP40 OCT 2016

We’ve got a full slate of new music in this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  It was one hellova week for new music adds with debuts and new song adds from My Blue Sky, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Brent Cowles, OneRepublic, piKziL, The Drunken Hearts, Gabrielle Louise and Katherine Homes.

my-blue-skyMy Blue Sky is best known as one of the top tribute bands in the region, winner of two Leftapalooza Mile High Tribute Band Competition events, in 2014 and 2015, before deciding themselves to not participate in 2016… instead taking the time to record an album of originals and covers that demonstrate their skill at interpreting some of the most well known southern blues rock from bands like the Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule, and Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie).   Their self titled debut shows they’re capable of writing jams worthy of the bands they pay tribute to. ***personal bias = I spent the 90s playing in a band that covered a LOT of ABB and Gov’t Mule***

drunken-hearts-epThe Drunken Hearts is another band shaped in the southern rock jam band tradition with a decidedly more country rock flair on “Want You Back” from their debut EP called Love & Thirst.  Other songs on the ep carry the same vibe – and there are even a couple of nods to the twin guitars you might have heard from the ABB or the Outlaws or Marshall Tucker Band …nicely produced and mixed, their harmonies and tight playing are a direct complement to the influences they most emulate.    ***same personal bias as above***




I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.

It’s not a competition.  It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.

One thought on “Colorado Playlist S10 EP40 OCT 2016”

  1. Hey Chris,

    Firstly, thanks for playing me again! Secondly, reading through your update about the embeddable links, I wanted to make sure you have mine. You may already, but just in case. Here’s the public link on Soundcloud (as opposed to the private one I previously sent you – this one anyone can stream)

    and also on Youtube at:

    I’m working on bandcamp this week, but it’s not set up quite yet. I also like Bandcamp the best because it encourages people to buy the CD! 🙂



    P.S. If you do a holiday themed show, “Graveyard Ballet” is a nice spooky one…I’m going to post it tomorrow for Dia De Los Muertos. 🙂

    New record, If the Static Clears, out now!

    *”Gabrielle Louise is eclectic, eccentric, seductive, flexible, literate and a plethora of other descriptive adjectives that pertain to music and creativity and yet there is no pinning down this woman, no way to sum her up in one word. She manages to blend seemingly disparate styles of music and lyrics into a captivating blend…a homogenous mix of folk, bluegrass, and jazz…Her voice is going to make time stand still in that it is full, rich and has great nuance in it…A beautifully crafted disc in every possible way.”** –NO DEPRESSION /Bob Gottlieb*
