MONDAY SEPT 3, 2018 – Happy Labor Day. We’re getting pretty close to the end of the 2018 release year, which runs November 2017 through Oct 2018. So we have about three months until I begin tabulating your votes for the Best of show at the end of the year and the Fan Poll for the year. By the time we get to the end of the “new model” year, I will have shared nearly 300 new tracks with you from here in Colorado.
Contenders for this year’s BEST OF include new and or upcoming new titles from mainstays and obvious contenders such as DeVotchka, Gregory Alan Isakov and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats as well as up and comers like Oxeye Daisey and Gingerbomb. Your votes matter, so don’t forget to let me know whether to KEEP or DELETE in the MMMM below.
Debuts this week include new and/or upcoming new releases from alt-rockers Augustus and CITRA – and Americana/alt-country from Matt Rouch & the Noise Upstairs. There’s also a new cut from the previously debuted David Starr album “South and West.”
VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
NEW ARTIST ALERT: well, she’s not exactly a new artist, but she is relatively new to Colorado. Turns out award winning NYC vagabond musician/painter Elli Perry has at least temporarily settled down in Fort Collins. The music video for her song “Burn The River Down” won the award for Best Sound at the New York Independent Film Festival in May. She’s been in Fort Collins since February according to sources there, and it’s rumored she may be interested in staying a while… as in set down some roots in our Colorado music scene.
NEW TIMES UPDATE
- 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins has moved the show from Saturday night at 8PM to Thursday mornings from 6-8AM.
- KSUT Ignacio/Durango has added HR1 of the show and moved the time from 7PM Saturday nights to 10PM-12AM Saturday nights
MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING
NOTE: In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file on Soundcloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.
