CP S13 EP40 2019

MONDAY Oct. 14 2019 – A day doesn’t go buy that I don’t get new music to share with you.  That’s truly one of the most exciting things about our scene – that we have an almost endless supply of great music for every taste.

I scan multiple sources to discover new music for this show.  So a big thanks to every publication and dj in the region that puts Colorado music out there.

As I was going through my video picks for the week, I came across one that intrigued me from AveryJ & The BA that I’d read about in a couple of online reviews.  I can’t play the song behind this week’s video pick, but he did send me others he thinks might work.

Expect a big announcement next Monday, Oct 21.


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

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Avery J is not the first artist in Colorado music history to fuse blues and hip hop.  I’ll give that crown to the late John-Alex Mason, the critically acclaimed award winning blues artist who teamed up with Cody Burnside several years ago and released a rap infused blues record.  BUT – Avery is the first HIP HOP artist to infuse his music with delta Mississippi blues and gospel.  Spirit Cookin is not something you’ll get to hear on the radio – for  EXPLICIT LANGUAGE.

CP S13 EP39 2019


MONDAY Oct. 07 2019Have you ever wondered how many actual records are produced and released a year now, just in Colorado? Just in my collection there have been nearly 300 individual single, ep and lp releases since Nov 1 2018.

It’s been another crazy week for new releases too … new music from the Shamen featuring John Magnie and Steve Amadee from the Subdudes + Nick Forster (E-Town) + Jock Bartley (Firefall). It’ll be on the next episode of the show. Also new in the next episode will be new cuts from Tierro (Kan’nal) + Bridget Law (Elephant Revival), and a cut from the upcoming new album by Post Paradise.

Don’t forget to check out the Colorado Playlist Spotify featuring cuts from the 60s to Today … and the CP2019 on Spotify, where I curate the new cuts I feature each week on the show from throughout the year. There are currently over 200 tracks in that playlist alone; so if you want to review what was new this past year, go there.

And just in case you haven’t done it in a while – make sure to vote whether I should KEEP or DELETE new music this week from the playlist … votes go to what is considered some of the best of 2019.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Big Head Todd & the Monsters are one of Colorado’s longest running bands – now going back to the mid 80s when the original trio of friends got started as high school students, and then at CU Boulder. This new video is a min-documentary of the band’s success.

CP S13 EP36 2019

MONDAY SEPT 16 2019 -I didn’t realize it until I was thick into producing the show this week that all but two of the featured (D) debuts are by women in Colorado music.  #COwomeninmusic

The Still Tide, Whippoorwill, Kerry Pastine, Kayla Marque, and Liptruce all have new releases out that will almost certainly be considered for BEST of the CP 2019. Add the new video from Cass Clayton the group of wonderful new music from #COwomeninmusic. 

I was able to catch Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene at their album release show with Cass Clayton on Friday the 13th at Dazzle, in Denver.    It was great to see some wonderful friends in attendance, including legendary Denver artist Lannie Garrett, who informed me she’s now retired from performing and recording.  We agreed it’s time for her to sit down for an interview.  Also in attendance, Angie Stevens, who unless my ears were ringing so loud I misunderstood, told me she’s playing the Bluebird on January 23, 2020.  

Lannie also informed me that she’s been in the process of digitizing some old cassettes from her days in Forecast, which dates back to the late 70s, which is when I first heard her at Bentley’s at the BBC on Cap Hill in Denver.  I’d love to share some of that with you.

GOATZ! is back to playing at some of our favorite indoor venues, and a couple of new ones.  In particular, we’ve very happy to be playing at the new Broadway Roxy and Nissi’s Entertainment Venue & Event Center (Lafayette) in October.  Make sure to check our concert listings at www.goatzmusic.com/shows

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Cass Clayton is a friend.  Full disclosure, she serves on the board of directors for the non-profit I started a few years ago.  I msg’d her recently to compliment her on her new video.  What I learned is that it’s both about where she grew up, and she shot the entire video on her iPhone, due to lack of a video production budget.  WTG Cass … one of the tremendous women in music in Colorado!

CP S13 EP35 2019

MONDAY SEPT 09, 2019 – Twenty years ago a very special woman in my life created the “picky grumpy old goat” after I returned from a tour of England/Scotland with my band and quit.  That idea blossomed into “goat” as I’ve been known ever since.  Miss Pattie, aka Mrs. Goat, passed away in 2016.  

Over the past few years I’ve asked a handful of graphic artists to refresh the old logo that Miss Pattie did for me.  I’m very happy and honored that My Blue Sky drummer Jamie McGregor (Zamar Screen Printing Inc.) caught the essence of the original and provided the perfect update …and a new banner to go with it.  Thank you Jamie! 

Speaking of My Blue Sky.  Original founding member and bassist, David Brandt, has announced he’s leaving the band to focus on family and other personal goals.  Good luck to David and the band.

Congratulations are in order for one of Colorado’s BEST – SUCH – whose new album Wide Nose, Full Lips landed in the national Billboard charts.  The album hit #25 in the national R&B/Soul Album chart and #5 in the national Heatseekers chart, across all genres.  The album debuted at #9 on the iTunes R&B/Soul charts.  Check out the latest single from her album in this week’s MMMM below.

I’m also very happy to premier the new release from Sean Kelly of the Samples aka the Samples called Indian Summer.  The Samples are a Colorado legacy band that formed after Sean moved here from New England in 1987 and formed the band, then based in Boulder.

Add to those fantastic new releases one from Jurassic Mark, aka Mark Bliesener, aka Band Guru.  Mark Bliesener is one of Colorado’s unsung music industry legacies. Among other things, he is credited with coining the band name Dead Kennedys. He has been the manager for both Lyle Lovett and Big Head Todd & the Monsters. At age 70 he just dropped his solo debut. It’s a rock n roll record with plenty of old school garage and punk. It’s not yet available online.  When it is, I’ll share it.  In the meantime, if you missed this week’s show you can stream it in the archive section at www.coloradosound.org

Now that the summer outdoor concert season is over, my band GOATZ! is back to playing at some of our favorite indoor venues, and a couple of new ones.  In particular, we’ve very happy to be playing at the new Broadway Roxy and Nissi’s Entertainment Venue & Event Center (Lafayette) in October.  Make sure to check our concert listings at www.goatzmusic.com/shows

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

One of the very intriguing artists to emerge from Denver the past few years, Kayla Marque almost didn’t get here.  A couple of years ago, she suffered from vocal problems, along with other personal issues, that prompted the title of her upcoming album Brain Chemistry (Left Brain / Right Brain) on which she deals not only with matters of the heart, but mental health issues as well.

Kyle Donovan – Then and Now

kyle-donovan-album-review-marquee-magazine

Kyle Donovan is a rare and beautiful talent … with a voice that lifts, he sings notes that feel like fire flies on a moist summer evening alongside a deep and slow moving river … this isn’t mundane … it’s invigorating. Few voices are as pure and unwavering in tone and pitch, or as sweet and sensitive in emotion.

Kyle’s quietly expressive stories of life are reminiscent of the best storytellers … none less than Paul Simon, Kyle’s strongest and most obvious muse. “Then and Now” is a love album – the best kind; it’s inspirational. That the album is self produced, self recorded, self mixed and mastered is testament to Kyle’s unrelenting faith and courage in his immense talent. It simply sounds fabulous.

This is an album for the end of the night – at the quietest possible time of day, and mind and body. It ends with the sweetest lullaby, “No Matter the Distance,” a “honey dipped melody” to the love of his parents, knowing “we will always be here, in your heart.”

Kyle spent three years engineering what really is a masterpiece of a solo debut .. and a strong contender for ALBUM of the YEAR on the Colorado Playlist.
