CP S14 EP27 2020

Monday July 13 2020 – I can’t recall a time when I was told I couldn’t play something that had already been released to the public via streaming sites or YouTube.  But that’s exactly what’s happening with some good friends of mine.

Bonnie and Taylor Sims are both Bonnie & the Clydes and a side project called Everybody Loves an Outlaw.  An ELAO song called “I See Red” hit twelve million spins on Spotify. Add in the 2+ million plays on YouTube and you have a verified hit.  BUT … radio cannot play it.  So I cannot play it.  BUT – I can share it.  Here only.  Not on the show.  Not until I’m told I can by the label.  In the meantime, here’s a new video from Bonnie & Taylor doing the hit “solo.”

Another new release is also sitting in my catalog that I can’t play on the radio, but can share here.  “All the Misery Money Can Buy” is the latest from my pals in Gasoline Lollipops.  It’s available wherever you get your music.  And it’s the best thing they’ve done to date.  The new album, recorded in Louisiana, is due out September 11.

CP S13 EP04 2019

Monday Jan 21, 2019 – one of the most incredible things about the Colorado music scene is the nearly bottomless depth of talent.  Every week I hear about new bands that have been playing for sometimes years, that I never heard about before.  I also come across new organizations and communities formed to encourage support and collaboration, across genres and styles.  Two this week.

Colorado Original Band Community – This forum / group page is for Colorado fans, band members and or folks interested in learning and contributing to The Colorado Original Band / Musician Scene with open transparency. There are many different entities who are members of this page. Club / venue owners, promoters, booking agents, management, industry reps local to national and most important, paying fans. This is also a place for beginners, intermediate and expert level musicians to ask questions of any level or to post interesting, funny or educational info. 

For the Love of Locals – For The Love Of Locals was started as a platform to fortify Colorado music. Founded and operated by Colorado musicians, their focus was always centered around showcasing Colorado talent, while giving fans, family and friends an easy and inexpensive way to support their favorite local artists.   Their best of Colorado 2018 Spotify playlist is worth a listen.

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.

CP S12 EP26 2018

June, July and August are the three HOTTEST months – musically.  There are more outdoor events – ticketed and free – in our region today than is even possible to chronicle, let alone attend.

Saturday night my girlfriend and I attended a sold out Mishawaka show – Trout Steak Revival with Gasoline Lollipops and Canyon Collected.  It was the last possible Saturday night I had available this summer to get to the Mishawaka for a show, and the overall experience did not disappoint.  A special surprise that night was the acoustic version of Gasoline Lollipops – the first for the band.

It was pretty evident that the sold out audience was there for the two jamgrass bands.  The Gas Pops met reserved appreciation from a polite audience until they revved up the tempos, allowing Don to demonstrate his formidable lead guitar skills and Clay to demonstrate his ability to own any audience I’ve ever seen him in front of.

By the end of the set, with Clay raging vocally, the audience was sold.  When the band came back on for a quick set of pics by the house photog, the audience thought maybe they were getting an encore …

Lead guitarist Don Ambory broke out a mandolin, the first time I’ve seen that happen – and he played his 1940’s Gibson acoustic for the Gas Pops set.  He also sat in on three songs with Trout Steak, and played electric guitar – his solos in the Trout Steak set were fan favorites as were the ukulele solos taken by Canyon Collected’s Tia Martini. 

Some of us standing in the “VIP” viewing area commented on the presence of the ukulele in the lineup until Tia demonstrably shredded every jam in the band’s 45 minute crowd pleasing set.

Because of the hour forty minute drive home to the Denver metro we didn’t stay for the entire set by Trout Steak Revival, but based on the overall feel of the night, and the thunderous applause during the first half of their set, I have no doubt that the show didn’t end by midnight.  Trout Steak does stand out as one of the best acoustic jamgrass Americana-folk bands in the region today.


VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

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

Last week I posted the The Best of 2018 So Far.  Beyond the top 5 albums posted, there are some others that stand up well as we’re now beyond mid point of the year.  The new album by Brent Cowles on Dine Alone Records, as well as Covenhoven’s A Kind of Revelation are going to be strong contenders by mid-December when the best of lists for the year come out around the region.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

What you’ll find below are new songs on the show this week … listen  and let me know which ones you think I should keep in the Colorado Playlist, and which I should delete.

NOTE:  In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file on Soundcloud, BandCamp, Reverbnation or YouTube.

Best of 2018 – So Far

This subject has been on my mind for like a month now.  There have been some really excellent albums, EPs and singles put out since December 1 2017.  Here are the top  album picks of the year so far, based on regional non-comm / public radio airplay and my own thoughts on the subject.

Anyone looking for rock or pop will be disappointed – roots, blues, old school rhythm and blues and Americana (alt-country) are the name of the game this year around the state.

I embedded song files.  Go to their youtube channels or other streaming service to checkout full albums.  Better yet – support the band with a purchase.

much love,
goat


Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats Tearing at the Seams — no doubt that this album will finish the year at #1 with a strong national showing, and ubiquitous CO airplay.

Leftover SalmonSomething Higher! — scan the non-comm/public radio dial statewide and this album, while not even nearly as popular as Tearing at the Seams, is crazy popular – as it should be since it’s one of the best the band has turned in over the past 25 years.

Wood BrosOne Drop of Truth —many people don’t realize that Chris and Oliver Wood are Boulder natives, and still claim it as home – even when they’re performing elsewhere.  Another HIGHLY played Colorado album around the state.

Reverend FreakchildDial It In! — the “reverend” is a traveler.  He was born in Hawaii and has been in bands in Boston, including an early version of Soul Coughing with Mike Doughty.  Today he’s living in Boulder and attending Naropa University.  For all my blues fans, this one is at the top of the pile. #highlyrecommended

Gasoline LollipopsSoul Mine — Clay Rose is known for being pensive and deliberate – living at the edge of damnation and redemption.  The band is enjoying a banner year in terms of bookings and regional radio airplay.
