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,

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.


CP S11 EP07 2018

Happy Monday Morning.  That video is the trailer for a documentary that was featured as part of the Boulder International Film Festival this weekend.  I managed to make the sold out showing on Sunday at the Longmont museum.

When the Magic Music album came out about two years ago now, it was not what many of us expected, or had hoped for – and the tell is in the movie itself.  A disclaimer is in order here: I was part of the promotion team for the Magic Music album.  The documentary really tells the story of the band and allows us to see what they could have (have?) become since they broke up in 1976.

Magic Music is an ingrained part of both the Boulder music scene of the 70s and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.  They were, in fact, the first “jamband” in Colorado music history.  After successful reunion appearances at the Boulder Theater and the release of the documentary, Chris Daniels, aka “Spoons,” announced they are working on booking some shows in and around the area for this season.

CO Playlist – S12 EP04 2018

It’s that time of the year when goat gets chewin like crazy.  I’m involved in two “Battle of the Bands” competitions entering the thick of the new year.  Last week I was a judge at the 1st of four events being put on by Bandwagon Magazine.  The finals are in March sometime.

Beginning Feb 14, Bolder Boulder’s annual Battle of the Bands begins at the new Oskar Blues tasting room in Boulder.  The winner gets to play the “main stage” at this year’s 40th Annual Bolder Boulder event and be included on the compilation.

COMING SOON the new release from Leftover Salmon.  I got to hand with the fellas Friday night at the Aggie in Fort Collins .. and they fired off a message to their manager to get me the first single from the album, “Show Me Something Higher,” in time for this coming episode of the show.  I’ll also have some fresh cuts from Rare Silk‘s catalog as well as new music from Instant Empire.

CO Playlist – S12 EP02 2018

Sunday – a snowed in day – NFL playoffs – some hot green tea – and plenty of new Colorado music to get to.

Tragedy once again struck as I lost an entire backup hard drive last week, with no way to recover the data.  The upside is that I had to begin the process of rebuilding a library of music that spans six decades.  This week’s show is filled with “classic cuts” I hadn’t played in a few years now.

On the new music front, new emerging acts Wounded Bird and the Plutinos are featured in this week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting).

Wounded Bird is a new project out of Boulder that features former Whiskey Bottles front-person Molly Orlando along with former college pal Scott Warren. Scott relocated to Evergreen from Los Angeles in 2016 where he composed for film & tv projects, most notably the Miramax opening logo music and the score for the Harry Connick Jr. and Willie Nelson film, “Angels Sing.”

Plutinos is a new solo project by Nate Barnes, known locally as one of the original founding members and drummer for hard rock band Rose Hill Drive.  Nate is also well known as a session and professional touring drummer for the likes of Americana maven Mary Chapin Carpenter as well as Ryan Bingham.

I think I got lost this past week.  Really.  I did get a lot of new music in my inbox – including new releases from Patrick Dune, Tennis, Katie Herzig, Pandas & People, and more … much love to Shilo Gold, whose music I recall playing a few years ago before she moved to Los Angeles, and who recently completed a self-funded tour of Europe.  Her live performance video from the Voice is below.

POLLS – thanks for participating.  I’m trying to get a sense of who we are here — and I can say we’re largely over 45, and like going out to see live music.  Here’s the next on.  I want to know your buying habits.


Many famous (and not so famous) acts have come to Colorado over the decades to get away from the hustle and bustle of LA or NYC.  Among those are acts like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the Eagles, which is undoubtedly the most famous of all such acts.


Chris Daniels and the Kings just released their 15th album, Blues with Horns Vol. 1, which once again features Freddi “Love” Gowdy (Freddi Henchi Band).

the misadventures of goat and Colorado music of course

20150317_074755Sunday I experienced a “fainting” spell while out on a 20 mile bike ride that landed me in the ER (by ambulance).  Monday I experienced a broken thumb and bruised ribs while out on a 15 mile bike ride that landed me in the ER (I drove myself).  On both days I did not make it more than 3.5 miles into my ride.  I blame the weather for getting me too excited.  Along the way I talked about music – Colorado music – with those who attended to me.

Every person I spoke with was between 25 and 50 yrs old.  With a few notable exceptions no one knew any of the current crop of bands making “headlines” regionally.  Yeah, everyone knew BHTM was from here … and a couple of folks knew about OneRepublic and the Fray, but beyond that there were generally blank stares and “I don’t go out very often” comments.

Broadcast radio and Pandora were the sources for music – not any other source was mentioned.  I did of course let everyone know they could listen to Colorado music online at The Colorado Sound Live365 … need to remember to keep business cards in my pocket though so I don’t have to write down the url everytime …

While suffering through all of this (i did a lot of maniacal laughing actually …esp thinking about the medical bills to follow) I was graced with a private listen to the new Megan Burtt album coming out this August.  I won’t spoil the fun, but this one will leave you with a huge grin, shaking your head at just how amazingly talented my friend truly is.  Of course hard core fans know this already.

Happy to report this morning that Richie Furay’s new album “Hand In Hand,” that I’ve been playing on the show since last summer, will finally be released to the general public on March  31.  It is currently the  #1 most added album at Americana radio nationally – though no word yet on whether those folks servicing the record to radio actually even know we have radio in Colorado … more on that to follow in the days and weeks ahead.

While checking out the Americana Music Association radio airplay charts I noticed the latest Leftover Salmon release, High Country, at #21  – down from #18 LW and 19 the week before.

Well, off to the doctor to assess the damages … I’ll be sure to let folks know where to tune in for Colorado music … hope you’ll do the same today.

For all intent and purposes, November concludes the year.  Any music that gets released in November is labeled as the following year, so we’re already into the 2015 season.  The big music news this month was the release of the new Leftover Salmon album “High Country,” featuring new permanent member Bill Payne (Little Feat).  I can’t recall off the top of my head what the last album was that debuted at #2.  The album was released on November 28, but the band made sure that djs around the state were serviced early enough to share the love pre-Thanksgiving. Outside of that one album the top 18 spots remained about as it was last month.

The biggest news of the month came from G. Brown at the Colorado Music Hall of Fame.  Richie Furay let us in on part of the secret in October, during Offstage …Beyond the Music, when he let us know that Poco and he would be inducted into the hall this year.  G finally released the rest of the lineup for the Jan 9 gala:  Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Firefall, Manassas, Poco … with special nods to Richie Furay and Steve Martin among others.  G. Brown will be my guest on Offstage …Beyond the Music in January – no doubt we’ll be talking a lot about the Hall of Fame.


I don’t watch very much television.  Most of what I watch is late night stuff like the local news, a half hour of Jimmy  Kimmel, and about twenty minutes of the Daily Show, before I fall asleep.  Sometimes I watch on demand episodes of shows like Gotham — but almost never do I watch talent shows – so I had no idea this summer that a local kid was on America’s Got Talent, nor did I know he made it to the TOP 5 finalists in September, before being eliminated. That’s okay; TOP 5 is enough to propel the take off of a career if played right.  With that, here’s a video playlist of Miquel Dakota, from Monument, Colorado … enjoy
