VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

If there’s one element about 80’s pop rock that seemed rather ubiquitous throughout it was androgyny. Most knew the style as “glam rock” and Denver’s Love Stallion nails it to the core.  In Valentine, the third video single from the band’s “Unforgettable Ride” debut, lead singer Aaron Hart allows his girlfriend, his Valentine, to transform him into a glamorously  ambiguous performer, resplendent in his form fitting spandex, teased up feathered hair, lipstick and bangles, while belting out what might have risen to hit FM rock radio status circa 1985.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Another of the outstanding pop singer-songwriters from our region, Andy Hackbarth spends most of his year playing cruise ships for a living.  According to his website, his upcoming new album, “Sex Robots, out May 24th, is perhaps Hackbarth’s most diverse effort yet, from the tranquil ache of an electro-pop-inspired opening track (U Don’t Have 2 Wait) to the EP’s epic finale (Sex Robots— a Bohemian Rhapsody-esque song complete with an extended orchestral section, robot noises, and a bass clarinet solo). The EP is rounded out by jazz whiz-kid Peter Sommer and Megan Burtt, Denver’s darling of the singer/songwriter scene.”

Monday Feb 25 2019

If you missed it, here’s the entire interview with Eddie Roberts, a member of the band The New Mastersounds from England, a Colfax Ave resident the past four years, and a founding partner in the new Denver label Color Red.  Run time = 20 minutes.

Coming up in a future episode, Colorado Music Hall of Fame inductee as a member of Firefall – Rick Roberts joins me. Rick and former Zephyr guitarist Jock Bartley formed Firefall in 1974. Rick was also the voice of the Flying Burrito Brothers from 1970 to 1972 and recorded two albums under his own name, before forming Firefall.

New music hit this week from my own band, GOATZ!  Veronique Van Pelt, and Drew Ballantyne.  Fortunately, it was a light week because I still have releases to get to from Amy and the Peace Pipes, Bison Bone and others.

Last week’s MMMM was off the charts .. we set a new five year record for most visits and most views and most votes.

I overheard someone say recently that he wished more bands would do protest songs. Intuit is a violin / cello driven Rocky Mountain acoustic groove-rock band with roots in a diverse range of musical styles.  They’re also a bit political – or at least socially conscious.

CP S12 EP44 2018

 Monday Nov 19, 2018 – This is my pre-Thanksgiving post.  As my girlfriend and I sat and watched news coverage of the California fires this past week, I couldn’t help but think about our own state and just how easily it would be for that to happen to us here.  Natural disasters destroy everything.

One of the reasons we launched Rocky Mountain Music Relief a year ago was so that when natural disasters affect the musicians in our own region we’d have a way to help out.   While our mission statement declares that we exist to help out musicians in the Rocky Mountain region (Colorado mostly) – I hope we can all contribute to helping those in need in California.

I’ll have big news coming in Q1 2019, but let me tease you a bit.  Next year when I thank stations for airing this program there will very likely be one more.  KFFR (Winter Park) has acknowledged they love the show and want to air it.  They’re hoping for early 2019.  Keep your fingers crossed.  No deal is a done deal until the show is added and aired.

Thank you to KRFC (Fort Collins), KJAC (Greeley/Front Range), KDNK (Carbondale), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio/Durango), KLZR (Westcliffe), KCMJ (Colorado Springs), KAFM (Grand Junction), KOYC (Pueblo), KZYR (Vail) and KHEN (Salida).

These stations reach out across 24FM frequencies in the state – bringing Colorado music to their  listeners 52 hours a week.  I hope you’ll support them with your financial contribution.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The environment is on everyone’s mind.  “Nature’s Way” was originally written, recorded and released by the band Spirit in 1969. Songwriter Randy California recorded several versions of the song over the years, quipping that he never quite got it right.  Now, it’s Firefall’s turn.  Bassist Mark Andes an original member of Spirit, sings lead and is joined by  featured guests Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles and John McFee of the Doobie Brothers.

I expect a new album from Firefall in the coming months.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Well, YouTube wins again.  I can always find songs there I can’t find on Spotify.  Either way, enjoy this week’s playlist.

HAPPY VETERANS DAY
NEVER FORGET 

As we approach the midway point of November, it seems that site traffic has hit a hard roadblock of sorts. I hope you’ll remember to stop by and check out the new music in the MMMM and vote to KEEP or DELETE.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

I found all of this week’s tracks on YouTube – the first CP YouTube weekly playlists.  Pls let me know what you think.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.

 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.”
