CP S12 EP36 2018

 Monday Sept 24, 2018 … It has been a pretty busy week in the scene here lately …

The Burroughs announced they have a new video coming out on September 29, called “Step Into the Music.”  It was done in partnership and collaboration with the Colorado based non-profit organization Sustain Music & Nature.  Here’s the video explaining who they are and what they do.  Look for the video for “Step Into the Music” to appear here (hopefully) next week.  I’ll debut the song in EP37 (SPT 22-28) of the show

The Fort Collins’ sisters SHEL sent out a a VERY EXCITING announcement.  They will be the closing night act for the 2018 Women Sports Film Festival in San Francisco at the end of the month.  Check out the accolades in this promo video!


At Bohemian Foundation, our focus is on building community …by coming together to create and enjoy music.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Andy Palmer has been one of the brightest highlights of the music scene in our region the past several years, going back to the breakout single “Grrrr,” from his debut “Sometime Around,” that dropped Sept 21 2011 – seven years ago.

Recently, Andy announced an indefinite hiatus from music activities to refocus on other endeavors and his family.  His exit from the scene is amplified by some of the starkest lyrics and imagery in his accomplished and highly praised body of work, in the video for “The Switch,” the title track from his most recent album that came out in May 2017.

As usual in Andy’s music, he leaves us with a hopeful feeling, despite being weighted down by existential burdens in life.  Let’s hope we get to hear more from Andy in the future.  Good luck and good living my friend.

The Colorado Sound TV – BEST VIDEOS 2013

chris k july 2010Unlike last year, when I included my VIDEO PICKS OF THE YEAR in my end of year post, this year I’m posting them early and asking for you to participate.  These are my picks (nominations if you will) for best videos of 2013.  There are 14 videos in the playlist.  Run time = 53 minutes – so shorter than a one hour episode of the Colorado Sound, and I know you’ve had time for that on occasion  😉

I’ve left room after the videos to pick your three favorites.  I had a blast going back to all the monthly video playlists and watching them all again … I hope you discover someone new who’s music you love.  Thank you for supporting.

Only those videos published on YouTube between Nov 1 2012 and Oct 31 2013 were considered for these picks.

EDIT:  SAT DEC 21, 2013 — POLLS CLOSED.  Videos reset in order of voting.

The Colorado Sound – S7/EP08 March 2013

grizzly goat adamsHi.  New Instagram shot … shows my “Grizzly Goat Adams” side my wife says … LOL .  Ok…not much time to sit and chat this morning.  The monthly news, notes, and Top 40 is now 2 days past schedule, and I’m only hoping I’ll get it done sometime today (Sunday March 3).  In the meantime I received more new music this past week than I had time to listen to.  But I did manage to get a fair amount into the show again this week.  Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case, not everything you hear this week will be heard again sometime soon.  I’ve already got 342 songs curated for 2013, and I’m not done importing.  I have 538 in catalog from 2012.  I’ll be doing some weeding this week to be sure.

In the meantime … news … Wendy Woo had surgery yesterday.  A late night post from her husband Charles Snyder while I was at the Skylark doing sound for Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams caught my attention… he told me in a follow up “she had to have surgery on her vocal cords to remove polyps. She had to cancel her next twelve shows which she’s really bumbed about, however the surgery went well and she should be back in a couple of months.”  Good luck to Wendy.  She’s been a staple in our scene for over a decade now, and continues to be a crowd favorite.

Speaking of Halden Wofford and the Hi*Beams – they spent the day yesterday, and will be back spending the day today, at Might Fine Productions finishing tracks for their upcoming new release.  The guys are really excited, and based on what I’ve heard of new material done live it will be another fan favorite.  Don’t expect a lengthy song list this time though – this will be a “smaller” batch of songs and there may be <hint fellows> vinyl in the offering (?).    Also finishing up mixing for a new album at Colin Bricker’s place => Lionel Young Band … bassist Kim Stone blasted out Thursday “Mixing the new Lionel Young Band CD at MFP Studio’s.”  Nice 🙂

Bumped into Kerry and Paul from the Informants last night also … could a new EP be in the making???

Birthday wishes this week to:  Jazz vocalist Erienne Romaine (22).  CJ Nicolai (Reckless Red).  Greta Cornet (FoCoMA, Road 34, 3 Twins Broadband, 12 Cents for Marvin, Mama Lenny & the Remedy). Rebecca Folsom (50).  Chris Citrus Sautoff  (Swallow Hill instructor and all around funk-meister guitarist and sitarist). Pianist Jon Wirtz (33).  Bassist Glenn Tapia (44).  And Colorado native and songstress Katie Herzig is celebrating… congrats to all our friends and family in the scene celebrating one great year of life among us.

I think that’s it … now for our Video Pick of the Week … and the Playlist … the NEWS NOTES & SPINS column should be up tonight … tomorrow morning at the latest, I promise.
