Colorado Playlist – S11 EP14

New music shares this week from Debajo del Agua, Analog Son (f. Ivan Neville), Natalie Tate, and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts.  I also played a new cut from Wolf van Elfmand, but there was no embed available to share.  Ditto Rose Hill Drive who I had hoped to share also this week.

Look for new releases next week from Andy Palmer and Head for the Hills among others.

SHOW NEWS = 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins moved the show to Saturdays from 4PM to 6PM.

GOAT ON THE TOWN

(I know that’s some corny shit .. but what the hell)

Look into any nook and cranny today and you can find live music.  This is especially true of brew pubs, where on just about any night of the week you can find an amazing array of local talent – generally of the singer-songwriter variety, and mostly in country, bluegrass, and folk styles — and mostly acoustic, although there are certainly exceptions to all those things.

The Prairie Scholars – CHUBurger Longmont – April 14

I stopped by Oscar Blues CHUBurger in Longmont Friday evening for a burger and a beer and caught up with friends Jessica and Andy Eppler, aka the Prairie Scholars… one of, if not the top duo playing Longmont right now… holding court every Tuesday night at SKEYE Brewing‘s open mic night.  SKEYE Brewing also hosts music every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9.  See their schedule online for details about the acts playing there.

Echo Brewing in Frederick does not offer live music regularly, according to the staff.  I stopped by there Saturday afternoon to see a friend and have a couple of pints.  Echo was celebrating their 5th Anniversary, and as a special event treat they had local garage rock cover band Cat Jerky playing.  It was a perfect afternoon to have a killer Kolsch and enjoy some classic rock and country.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK 

I first became aware of, and a fan of Debajo del Agua in 2007, when they released Arte-Santo.  Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on some shows around the region. Then, following their 2008 release The World Upside Down, the band inexplicably dropped off my radar.  I’m happy to say, they have a new album out for 2017 – with a renewed vision and expanded sound.

From their website bio:  Debajo del Agua has been a pillar of the artivist musical community for over a decade. While their musical style is not easily categorized or defined, it is focused on fusing hip hop with the melodies of Andean music, samba, son, salsa, cumbia, reggae, and reggaeton, creating a flavorful blend of melodies, spiced up with a style of its own. The members of Debajo del Agua span the Americas coming from Chile, Peru, El Salvador, Mexico, and the United States.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP06

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Well, Colorado pretty much got shut out of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards last night. There was no Pretty Lights, no Lumineers, no Gerald Alright …all prior Grammy nominated acts …and no Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats.  I’m particularly surprised that the Lumineers did not get enough votes to earn a nomination for their album Cleopatra, that went #1 in both the US and Canada last year.

All that said, Denver’s Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) earned another Grammy for his part as a producer on the multiple Grammy winning  “25” by Adele.  Native Denverite Bill Frisell did earn a nomination for Best Instrumental album for Wish Upon A Star, and former Denver resident Rene Marie was nominated in the Best Vocal Jazz Category for her album Sound of Red.  Of course, my pick for album of the year for 2016 went to the Lumineers, for Cleopatra.

Last week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) was interesting.  Seems like we’ve locked in a pretty steady core group of readers who let me know what they like each week … Patrick Dethlef’s “I Was Your Age,” received a resounding “DELETE IT” vote, along with Spiral Cell‘s “Taste.”  Last week’s winners included the emotional “Sweat” from Michael Hornbuckle and what’s turned out to be a very well received release from the Steve Law Band, who have had two KEEP IT tracks voted on over the past two weeks.

This week’s MMMM includes shares from Dearling, Flobots, and Ginny Mules.  The new Flobots album is due out in May.

Colorado Playlist – BEST OF 2016 PT2

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1I wish I could name everything I get to play on my show as a BEST OF.  I mean that.  In the TEN years now that I’ve been doing this show, I am still blown away by the greatness of the music that comes from our state.

Let me first of all thank Dani Grant and the folks at the Mishawaka Amphitheater, and the folks at Oskar Blues Fooderies for supporting this show in 2016.  I would not be able to do this if not for them and YOUR financial support.

I also want to thank everyone at 105.5FM, KJAC aka 105.5 The Colorado Sound for welcoming me as part of the family, and taking on my old show name.  Host stations now include KJAC (Northern Front Range), KRFC (Northern Colorado), KDNK (Carbondale/Glenwood Springs), KOTO (Telluride), KSUT (Ignacio/Durango/Pagosa Springs), KZYR (Vail), KCMJ (Colorado Springs) and KLZR (Westcliff)

I started this show, and starting booking and promoting bands here, because I got tied of people saying “how come Colorado (Denver) can’t be like ______ (name your favorite ahem – Seattle – etc)”  I mean, really.  And even to this day members of my own family don’t know that certain high profile national level bands are from here.  I have a lot of work to do still … so expect me on the air for another TEN years — AT LEAST!

Picking the BEST OF is not an especially easy task.  I spend several hours a week just listening to music I receive to play on the show.  I scan radio playlists from around the state.  I scan charts including national and instate – like the Roots Music Report Colorado charts.  I look to see who’s doing what, nationally, regionally and locally.  I listen to my colleagues and peers in the “industry” here in Colorado.  And I listen to the fans of the music.

My true hope is that you’ll discover a new band/artist to fall in love with and claim as a favorite yourself.

Here’s what got played in the BEST OF 2016 show.

TRUSTED EAR SCENE REPORT

Thanks to my friend, and former Westword music editor Dave Herrera for launching TheTrustedEar.com and contributing news and information about the scene to us each week.

 

THE TOP 3 BEST OF …

After anguishing over leaving stuff out that I really liked, and thought deserved being noticed, I decided to present the TOP 3 releases in each category.  Enjoy.  Links go to playable media: YouTube in most cases.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE 2016

This one went back and forth feverishly between Bonnie & the Clydes and The Drunken Hearts, and the final tally made it a finish by single digits … so basically, they were pretty nearly tied when I shut down the poll … All in all, thanks to their fans we enjoyed the most robust People’s Choice Poll in years.  Click on links to get to band website.

Bonnie & the ClydesDear Somebody

The Drunken Hearts Love & Thirst

FacemanWild and Hunting 

ALBUM/EP OF THE YEAR

 The Lumineers – Cleopatra  I didn’t like The Lumineers’ Cleopatra when it dropped. In fact, it took me several months of listening to it, and playing it on my show and at 105.5, before I “got it.”  It is a stunning album of really well written folk-rock songs, that stands up well to anything from any prior era.  It went #1 on the Billboard charts.

OneRepublicOh My My  Call me a pop music junkie, but when it’s a good as OneRepublic’s Oh My My, I can never overdose.  Easily one of the best collections of addicting pop/rock in recent memory. (edit jan 4) In particular I can’t seem to get enough of A.I. with Peter Gabriel.

Big Head Blues ClubWay Down Inside  Todd Park Mohr and company, appearing as Big Head Blues Club, rip up the music of Willie Dixon, preserving not only the legacy of the original, but imbuing it with solid craftsmanship from some of our best in the Centennial state.  (edit jan 4) Along the way they enlist the aid of Denver’s Erica Brown and a handful of blues legends.

SONG OF THE YEAR

SuCh (Su Charles) – You (Icytat Vocal Mix):  No song this year has had as much of an impact on me as “You.”  SuCh and Icytat won the 2016 All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) for this version of the song.  If you want to catch her live, she’ll be appearing at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox in Denver on Fri Feb 3.  She is also getting ready to go into the studio to record a new album in 2017.

The Lumineers – Ophelia:  When I first heard this song last winter I thought I was hearing a dropped track from the band’s debut.  It grew on me.  It’s also one of Colorado’s highest charting songs historically, peaking at #1.

Rob DrabkinSomeday:  I’ve been a fan of Rob’s since meeting him at open stages in Denver over a decade ago.  “Someday” is the song we’ve all been waiting for.  It also appears to be his most popular single so far, reaching over 500,000 plays on Spotify.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP47 DEC 2017

This is the last post of 2016.  I will not post next Monday, the day after Christmas.  If you haven’t done so yet, pls vote for your favorite albums and eps of 2016 at AND THE NOMINEES ARE! and the TOP 25 Videos of 2016.  

mr-and-mrs-goat-2015Thank you for an incredible 2016.  As you may know, this has been a very bittersweet year in the “house of goat.”  Mrs Goat passed away on Feb 2, just as I sold the name “The Colorado Sound” to 105.5FM KJAC… and subsequently at the same time I was invited to go back on the air as a part time air talent at one of the best “rock” stations I’ve ever had the pleasure of jocking for, 105.5 The Colorado Sound.  I cannot thank my friends at KJAC enough for this incredible opportunity.

I, and some of my closest friends, made a promise to our friend Pattie that the music would not stop… that I would continue to produce this show, and I would continue to play our songs out live… both activities that Pattie helped to forge and support throughout the past seventeen years.  Neither this show nor the band GOATZ! would exist without her involvement and support.  Pattie suffered a massive brain seizure on Dec 23 last year, due to melanoma cancer that metastasized in her brain, stomach and lungs.

The first song I played this week is one she wrote the lyrics for, Once Upon A Snowflake.  She and our grand daughter used to tell the story to each other, and it turned into a song five years ago.   Thanks to our friend John McVey at Coupe Studios (Boulder) for producing it. 

My wish for this season is that you will share some of our incredible LOCAL music with your family and friends, and support the Colorado musicians by purchasing hard physical band merch and music and giving it as gifts.  It’s not too late.  For cds, visit Albums on the Hill in Boulder or Twist and Shout in Denver … two great stores owned and operated by a couple of great guys who love our scene.

oskar-blues-no backgroundOskar Blues Fooderies!  I won’t post again until Jan 2, but I hope you’ll come hang out with me at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on New Year’s Eve … Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene is playing… and if you prefer a bit more twang to your rock and country, check out Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams at the Original Grill and Brew in Lyons.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP38 OCT 2016

Quick poll .. in the spirit of the election season … recently I changed the MMMM so that you can vote YES – KEEP IT or NO – DO NOT KEEP on each new shared track.  Should I keep doing it?

Keep your fingers crossed.  Looks like we may be adding a new station for the show in a major ski resort area.  (is there an emoji for that?)

We’re now in the final week for new entries for 2016.  November 1 officially marks the start of the 2017 release season.  Be watching for your chance to help me select the Best of 2016.

I’m not a big fan of late night shows in general, and am even less thrilled when headliners don’t go on until 10PM on a Sunday night.  Such was the case last night (Sunday) when my son and I attempted to see two shows – where the headliners did not hit the stage until 9:45 and 10PM respectively.

Since both of us are working men, and my son had to be at work at 6AM, we both realized that if we didn’t get home by 10:30 or 11PM at the latest, we’d have short sleep cycles.  As a result, we missed one headliner completely, and only caught two songs of the other before needing to head home.

To those who have the wherewithal to stay out late on a Sunday night – good on you.  But wouldn’t it make more sense to actually start shows closer to 8PM, with headliners on by 9PM so that working stiffs can be out by 10PM?  Or am I, and my son, just too old for school now?  😦  if true…. especially since we are both musicians with bands that play out.  But case being what it is I overslept the alarm by over 2 hours this morning.  <smh>

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

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.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP37 OCT 2016

Happy Monday.  With the political world in turmoil, and rookie QB Paxton Lynch taking a tumble, or two … or six … let’s turn our attention to this week’s new music on the Colorado Playlist.

One big change this week.  I’ve changed how the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) works.  See below.  I think it will give us a better indication of which songs you think we should KEEP or NOT KEEP in the Playlist.

Thanks to Grim&Darling for the radio premiere of their new single Rather Not, which is also the Video Pick of the Week.

I realize this has nothing to do with music or musicians here in Colorado (other than GOATZ! playing this event), but this is an important organization in my life.

Last winter, during Mrs Goat’s final days, I promised that her (our) daughter would always have a forever Dad.  Our daughter was 40 years old at the time of the adoption — and adopting an adult child of that age is not something that you see every day, by the admission of the judge who finalized the adoption.

Adoption Dreams executive director Cindy Sarai and her staff came to the rescue and expedited our adoption, which was completed four days before my wife passed away.  I’m honored to have been asked to be the Master of Ceremonies at this year’s fundraiser.  I hope to see many friends at this event.  Click on picture for more details.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK 


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

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.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP36 OCT 2016

Sometimes a song hits me hard.  Mawule‘s “Black is Beautiful” came to me via email a few weeks ago, and I had to wait to air it – although I listened to it numerous times in my own time and space.  Born Ebenezer Yebuah, Mawule, was born and raised in Accra, Ghana. He and his family moved to Denver when he was 10 years old and he’s remained here ever since.

While other Denver hip-hop artists are receiving more praise, and getting signed to bigger, more nationally recognized labels, Mawule’s Black is Beautiful stands out among all the hip-hop tracks I normally receive.

Other than one other cut, from The Longest Day of the Year, “Black is Beautiful” is the only other song in this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  The other acts did not have shareable embeds for their new cuts.

bobby-walker#cancersucks Colorado legacy bluesman Bobby Walker is the latest in a run of brothers and sisters in the scene the past couple of years who have been diagnosed with and is undergoing treatment for cancer.  In Bobby’s case, it’s throat cancer.  Bobby is good about posting updates at his FB pg.

Props to the International Blues Society for being there to help out with a major contribution.  More than $11,000 has been raised via GoFundMe to offset the costs that Bobby is facing as he deals with everything.  We’ve lost a couple of our friends to cancer the past year – and a couple have had successful treatments.  I’m hoping we get many more years of Mr. Walker’s wonderful voice.  Much love my friend.
