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.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

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 S13 EP06 2019

Monday Feb 4, 2019 – Wendy Woo has a new album coming out.  Normally, that’s no big deal, right?  Wendy has put out a number of records in her award winning career to date.  But, in this case it’s a solo release – the first one since Angels Laughing in 2005.  It also carries a message.  I debuted the first single in this week’s show and it’s the video pick of the week.  If the single is any indication, this could be among the best of what Wendy has put out in her career.

Also in this week’s MMMM = Foxfeather, Anthony Ruptak, and Lucy Daydream.  Coming soon – new music from Thom Chacon, Ryan Dart, Brothers Keeper and more.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

The Immigrant is Westword Music Hall of Fame winner Wendy Woo’s first solo acoustic album since 2005.  While I can only imagine what the album will be about based on the title, The Weather gives us a clue.  It also stands up as among the best things that Wendy has done in her career.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Don’t forget to let me know if there’s something I should be playing on the show.  I scour Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and Bandcamp to find you the freshest new music from around the state – hope you’ll help out by voting to KEEP or DELETE the new music shares in the MMMM each week.

New releases over the past five weeks from the Motet, Daniel Rodriquez, Gasoline Lollipops, Anthony Ruptak and funk/hip-hop newcomers E.M.K. set the stage nicely for 2019.

There are new releases currently in the queue to be played in upcoming episodes of the show from Bonnie & the Clydes, Wendy Woo, newcomers Lucy Daydream, SW CO Americana singer/songwriter Thom Chacon and Americana country from Escape Gold, another recent discovery.

Also coming up in a near future episode of the show, an interview with Eddie Roberts (New Mastersounds) about his new Denver record label Color Red, and his non-profit work.

New music this week in the MMMM below from the String Cheese Incident, the Motet and Slow Caves.  I was way out in front of the new releases played in the first hour of the show; none of the acts have digital set up yet so they won’t show up in the YouTube or Spotify playlists either.

I updated the Colorado Playlist TV page, and YouTube playlist.

ALSO — don’t forget.  If you’d like to stream the show, it’s available weekly at www.coloradosound.org/

CP S13 EP03 2019

Monday Jan 14, 2019 – As I sat down this morning to put the finishing touches on this blogpost, I came across a Facebook post from G. Brown’s Colorado Music Experience.

“On this date in 1975, Joe Walsh earned a gold record for his third solo studio album, “So What.” Standout tracks included a remake of the Barnstorm track “Turn to Stone” and the haunting “Song For Emma,” written for Walsh’s daughter who had been killed in a car accident the previous year in Colorado. https://colomusic.org/profile/joe-walsh-barnstorm/

G. Brown is one of Colorado music’s living legacies.  His book outlining music history, and his newest endeavor – Colorado Music Experience – serve as prime research tools for my show.

Every week I post up the MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).  This is your chance to let me know what you think of the new songs I played on the show.  I do hope you’re enjoying this feature, and will continue to make your vote known, to KEEP or DELETE.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

WhiteWater Ramble founder Patrick Sites has always found a way to continue the band’s rocky-grass groove with strong voices up front – whether former lead singer Patrick Latella or current lead vocalist/guitarist, Damon Wood.  Damon’s background includes several years as the guitarist in soul/funk legend James Brown’s band.  Here, Damon brings a true Colorado country rock voice to a summer time “drinking song” jam.
