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.

Monday SEPT 13 2021 – I put the mask back on. It’s a reminder that COVID is not over with us. #COMUSIC – support.

To go or not to go – that may or may not be the question. Looking at filled football stadiums on tv yesterday, you’d think we returned to 2019 when not one of us had a concern about COVID.

On the other side of that is the number of show cancellations we’re seeing and the number of venues that now require we be vaxxed or have a neg-COVID test result within seventy-two hours.

Check your local listings for cancellations and what you need to do in order to attend.

What is the sound of Colorado in 2021?

Look at what non-commercial community/public/college radio here and around the country play from Colorado and you’d want to think the sound is based in Americana roots grooves.

If you’re a long time fan and you look at who is appearing at this year’s Westword Music Showcase September 17 & 18 you’ll be surprised to find mostly Urban Alternative (a radio format that focuses on hip-hop, R&B and dance genres) acts.

Case in point: Roots Music Report (Colorado) has the new album from Chris Daniels & Hazel Miller at #1 for the 6th consecutive week, with Reverend Freakchild, The High Hawks, Leftover Salmon and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats, A.J. Fullerton, West Side Joe & the Men of Soul, Eddie Turner, Rodney Rice and Nathaniel Rateliff (solo) filling out the TOP 10…

…while Westword is showcasing Dafna, 2MX2, N3ptune, Roka Hueka, Nay Renee, Brothers of Brass, Zanib, Joseph Lamar, Ramakhandra, Neoma, A Meazy, and YaSi on Saturday with less than a handful of more straight-up rock and alternative rock bands.

What’s missing is the sound of Americana – jazz, blues, bluegrass, folk, country-folk, and acoustic roots music with Bison Bone and LVDY the only “Americana” acts represented in the Westword Music Showcase Spotify playlist.

The Westword Music Showcase has certainly changed a lot over the past thirty years, but does Denver really sound that much different from the rest of the state??
