CP S15:40 2021

Monday Oct 04, 2021 – We’re about a month away from the start of the 2022 new release year. What are some of your favorite songs so far since last November? What are some of your favorite full length LPs or EPs? Comment to let me know.

You can find 100 of the TOP currents at CP 2021 on Spotify. That playlist changes somewhat regularly, but will lock down on or about November 4th.

Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller had a great run in the TOP 5 the past several weeks and are sure to find themselves among the TOP 20 for year’s end based on spins around the state.

The Lumineers new album won’t officially be released until early in 2022, but the new single is receiving copious amounts of airplay at both Indie 102.3 and 105.5 The Colorado Sound, landing them at #1 this week.

Expect Kiltro to reign the TOP 5 for November, along with the Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats and the Velveteers, both of whom have new albums dropping in October and November respectively. Nightmare Daydream from the Velveteers will drop on Oct 8.

Not all charts are the same. The TOP 5 Colorado album spins at Roots Music Report looks a lot different than the TOP 5 here, where the Night Hawks have run up to the #1 spot and Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller fall to #5 .. Reverend Freakchild, Leftover Salmon and Eddie Turner round out their TOP 5 this week.
