Monday Oct 29 2018 – Well, that’s it. October is in the books, and with it the 2018 new release year. It’s been an exciting year of music – and now it’s time to start working on what records will be considered among the best of the past year. Be looking for upcoming polls and posts with your chance to vote.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Betsy Mortenson and Harrison Goodale, the principles behind Sustain Music & Nature, an amazing organization that recently invited the Burroughs to participate in in Songscapes. Here’s our chat:

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK
Anyone doubting that the Album of the Year is for 2018? Oh, and have you heard of Nathaniel’s new candy bar?
“A Little Honey” Handcrafted Chocolate with Honey, Blood Orange, and Marigold
“Inspired by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ “A Little Honey”, this limited edition craft chocolate is a fundraising collaboration between The Marigold Project, Small Batch America, and Fruition Chocolate Works. Made with 74% dark heirloom Costa Rican cacao, organic honey, blood orange, and marigold petals. Packaged in a letterpress sleeve.
Proceeds from ‘A Little Honey’ will benefit The Marigold Project and Denver Urban Garden’s work to support Denver residents in creating sustainable, food-producing neighborhood community gardens. DUG knows that in order to make lasting change, the community needs to drive it. That’s why every one of their urban gardens and farms have been started and led by local residents. They currently have over 170 gardens in six counties in the Metro Denver Area.”
