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.

The Colorado Sound – S7/EP08 March 2013

grizzly goat adamsHi.  New Instagram shot … shows my “Grizzly Goat Adams” side my wife says … LOL .  Ok…not much time to sit and chat this morning.  The monthly news, notes, and Top 40 is now 2 days past schedule, and I’m only hoping I’ll get it done sometime today (Sunday March 3).  In the meantime I received more new music this past week than I had time to listen to.  But I did manage to get a fair amount into the show again this week.  Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case, not everything you hear this week will be heard again sometime soon.  I’ve already got 342 songs curated for 2013, and I’m not done importing.  I have 538 in catalog from 2012.  I’ll be doing some weeding this week to be sure.

In the meantime … news … Wendy Woo had surgery yesterday.  A late night post from her husband Charles Snyder while I was at the Skylark doing sound for Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams caught my attention… he told me in a follow up “she had to have surgery on her vocal cords to remove polyps. She had to cancel her next twelve shows which she’s really bumbed about, however the surgery went well and she should be back in a couple of months.”  Good luck to Wendy.  She’s been a staple in our scene for over a decade now, and continues to be a crowd favorite.

Speaking of Halden Wofford and the Hi*Beams – they spent the day yesterday, and will be back spending the day today, at Might Fine Productions finishing tracks for their upcoming new release.  The guys are really excited, and based on what I’ve heard of new material done live it will be another fan favorite.  Don’t expect a lengthy song list this time though – this will be a “smaller” batch of songs and there may be <hint fellows> vinyl in the offering (?).    Also finishing up mixing for a new album at Colin Bricker’s place => Lionel Young Band … bassist Kim Stone blasted out Thursday “Mixing the new Lionel Young Band CD at MFP Studio’s.”  Nice 🙂

Bumped into Kerry and Paul from the Informants last night also … could a new EP be in the making???

Birthday wishes this week to:  Jazz vocalist Erienne Romaine (22).  CJ Nicolai (Reckless Red).  Greta Cornet (FoCoMA, Road 34, 3 Twins Broadband, 12 Cents for Marvin, Mama Lenny & the Remedy). Rebecca Folsom (50).  Chris Citrus Sautoff  (Swallow Hill instructor and all around funk-meister guitarist and sitarist). Pianist Jon Wirtz (33).  Bassist Glenn Tapia (44).  And Colorado native and songstress Katie Herzig is celebrating… congrats to all our friends and family in the scene celebrating one great year of life among us.

I think that’s it … now for our Video Pick of the Week … and the Playlist … the NEWS NOTES & SPINS column should be up tonight … tomorrow morning at the latest, I promise.
