CP S17 EP11 2023

Happy equinox from the desert – Chris K and Claire Mannato.

Monday March 20, 2023. Yep. Claire and I are on vacation in Death Valley. No spins chart this week, but I did get the MMMM done before we left.

We’re only in March and two songs are now in my short list for best song of the year. This week’s entry is from Rebecca Folsom. “Mercy” is an autobiographical tale of her and her sister. Homeless as children, and left behind, Rebecca eventually made it out, her sister didn’t. She would live her life and die in Boulder shelters. It’s a heart wrenchingly emotional performance on what in my opinion is the best song of Rebecca’s career as a songwriter.

Bridget Law has been splitting time between Tierro and Elephant Revival. Expect a new ER album soon.


I designed the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM) as a way for you to let me know what you think of new music emerging from around the state. Results enter into which cuts stay in rotation, and which cuts make the final “best of” list.
