Colorado Playlist – S11 EP16

Right up front I want to thank Oskar Blues Brewery for becoming a major sponsor of this show.  Oskar Blues has been part of my family for a decade and I’m ecstatic that they believe enough in the show to support it.

OB is celebrating 20 years in Lyons this coming weekend with a killer lineup that includes Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Gasoline Lollipops, Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams and many others.  Of special note – Sunday will be a legends of Colorado blues artist showcase I intend to be present for.

It’s been a very very long time since I stayed up until 4AM.  I managed to land a room to mix for the FoCOMX weekend, and we landed a prime 9:15PM Friday night slot for the band at the Mainline Ale House – one of the nicer restaurants and music venues in Old Town Fort Collins.  What was planned to be outside on the rooftop, fortunately was moved indoors into a room that was more than adequate for live music.

Stationed for sound duties at East Coast on Linden St, for both nights, I enjoyed the juxtaposition of singer-songwriters and folk singers, and DJs creating often unique mixes of various styles of appropriate music made for dancing.

I spent 16 years mixing music in dance clubs in the 70s and 80s.  Several of those years were here in Northern Colorado, in Fort Collins and Greeley.  I was thrust back to those years as I watched the lineup of local mix masters employ their craft.

I marveled at how other than technology, nothing much has changed in the art of mixing music for a dance crowd – and how the “hit” still matters most when you want to get people on the floor.  One dj did not employ that knowledge, and paid the price of a near empty room that lacked energy.

Michelle Petrie Trio – FoCOMX 9 – East Coast

Festivals like FoCOMX are motivated by allowing space for a diversity of people who make music – from neophyte stage performers to unequivocally well rehearsed, polished, and professional legends of music along the Front Range.

Two acoustic acts I thought showed a lot of promise were the Michelle Petrie Trio and PoorBoy, who will undoubtedly be changing their name.   PoorBoy is recording their second EP with Justin Roth in Fort Collins.

String Theory on Friday was one of the most creative acts of the weekend – featuring electric bass with harp (not harmonica – a real harp; a small laptop version).

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP14

New music shares this week from Debajo del Agua, Analog Son (f. Ivan Neville), Natalie Tate, and Ryan Chrys & the Roughcuts.  I also played a new cut from Wolf van Elfmand, but there was no embed available to share.  Ditto Rose Hill Drive who I had hoped to share also this week.

Look for new releases next week from Andy Palmer and Head for the Hills among others.

SHOW NEWS = 88.9FM KRFC Fort Collins moved the show to Saturdays from 4PM to 6PM.

GOAT ON THE TOWN

(I know that’s some corny shit .. but what the hell)

Look into any nook and cranny today and you can find live music.  This is especially true of brew pubs, where on just about any night of the week you can find an amazing array of local talent – generally of the singer-songwriter variety, and mostly in country, bluegrass, and folk styles — and mostly acoustic, although there are certainly exceptions to all those things.

The Prairie Scholars – CHUBurger Longmont – April 14

I stopped by Oscar Blues CHUBurger in Longmont Friday evening for a burger and a beer and caught up with friends Jessica and Andy Eppler, aka the Prairie Scholars… one of, if not the top duo playing Longmont right now… holding court every Tuesday night at SKEYE Brewing‘s open mic night.  SKEYE Brewing also hosts music every Friday and Saturday night from 7 to 9.  See their schedule online for details about the acts playing there.

Echo Brewing in Frederick does not offer live music regularly, according to the staff.  I stopped by there Saturday afternoon to see a friend and have a couple of pints.  Echo was celebrating their 5th Anniversary, and as a special event treat they had local garage rock cover band Cat Jerky playing.  It was a perfect afternoon to have a killer Kolsch and enjoy some classic rock and country.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK 

I first became aware of, and a fan of Debajo del Agua in 2007, when they released Arte-Santo.  Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on some shows around the region. Then, following their 2008 release The World Upside Down, the band inexplicably dropped off my radar.  I’m happy to say, they have a new album out for 2017 – with a renewed vision and expanded sound.

From their website bio:  Debajo del Agua has been a pillar of the artivist musical community for over a decade. While their musical style is not easily categorized or defined, it is focused on fusing hip hop with the melodies of Andean music, samba, son, salsa, cumbia, reggae, and reggaeton, creating a flavorful blend of melodies, spiced up with a style of its own. The members of Debajo del Agua span the Americas coming from Chile, Peru, El Salvador, Mexico, and the United States.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP08

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Welcome to Monday.  LOL.  I’ve been plagued by a nagging thought for the past few years.  While I, and MOST of my friends, support original acts, I do not ever want to forget that the vast majority of those who pick up an instrument, or decide to sing, are NOT songwriters.

I went out this weekend to see what I could see at a couple of the suburban rooms that feature NON-ORIGINAL music (read:  cover bands).

In one case, the band was exceptional, and while performing reminded me deeply of seeing the original acts in their original settings in the 70s (Harlem, Apollo Theater, Philly etc).  In the other case, it was as I might expect – a bunch of veteran journeymen musicians going through the motions, but hardly inspiring the audience to get up and dance.  I’ve witnessed the same thing with purely original acts — some inspire, some don’t, but we do tend to favor them over those who do not write and arrange their own thoughts and feelings into song.

All that said, I began this journey nearly 11 years ago to celebrate Colorado musicians that record great works, whether they wrote those works or not… from the biggest hit-makers and award winners to the freshest new musical talent emerging from around the state.  And, subsequently, I launched the MMMM at the beginning of the year to give you a chance to weight in.

Last week, Petals of Spain was the overwhelming favorite with a 100% KEEP IT rating.  High Fiction grabbed the most votes, but did earn a couple of DELETE IT votes.

Colorado Playlist – S11 EP07

15823350_10157928607200133_4133524469462401895_n-1Monday morning.  A recap.  Last week’s MMMM (Monday Morning Music Meeting) was among the most voted in I’ve seen this year so far.  Ginny Mules won big, including not only shear number of votes, but also in its 100% KEEP IT rating, when applied to the total number of votes received.  When fans rally, it’s an indication of fan favor = popularity = something we all strive for.  Popularity, I’ve learned is organic; it happens, or it doesn’t.

Despite the overall popularity of Flobots over the past decade, their new single “Pray” is off to a shaky start, barely managing to break a 50/50 KEEP IT or DELETE IT tie.  Their new album is due out this spring, but I should have more to share in advance in March.

Coming NEXT WEEK / EP08 … the DEBUT of the new Rose Hill Drive album Mania.  After years of speculation that the band had disbanded for good, the trio of two brothers and their best friend that began as children, reemerges not far removed from where they left off, with a guitar fueled, Led Zepplin influenced, hard rock groove sure to put them back at the top of the deck as one of the region’s most popular rock bands – exactly where they left off seven years ago now.    Expect sold out shows and plenty of outdoor festival appearances in 2017.

Also new NEXT WEEK / EP08 = Tiffany Christopher, Shady Elders, Otis Taylor, Deep Pocket Thieves and Bonfire Dub.

Colorado Playlist S10 EP47 DEC 2017

This is the last post of 2016.  I will not post next Monday, the day after Christmas.  If you haven’t done so yet, pls vote for your favorite albums and eps of 2016 at AND THE NOMINEES ARE! and the TOP 25 Videos of 2016.  

mr-and-mrs-goat-2015Thank you for an incredible 2016.  As you may know, this has been a very bittersweet year in the “house of goat.”  Mrs Goat passed away on Feb 2, just as I sold the name “The Colorado Sound” to 105.5FM KJAC… and subsequently at the same time I was invited to go back on the air as a part time air talent at one of the best “rock” stations I’ve ever had the pleasure of jocking for, 105.5 The Colorado Sound.  I cannot thank my friends at KJAC enough for this incredible opportunity.

I, and some of my closest friends, made a promise to our friend Pattie that the music would not stop… that I would continue to produce this show, and I would continue to play our songs out live… both activities that Pattie helped to forge and support throughout the past seventeen years.  Neither this show nor the band GOATZ! would exist without her involvement and support.  Pattie suffered a massive brain seizure on Dec 23 last year, due to melanoma cancer that metastasized in her brain, stomach and lungs.

The first song I played this week is one she wrote the lyrics for, Once Upon A Snowflake.  She and our grand daughter used to tell the story to each other, and it turned into a song five years ago.   Thanks to our friend John McVey at Coupe Studios (Boulder) for producing it. 

My wish for this season is that you will share some of our incredible LOCAL music with your family and friends, and support the Colorado musicians by purchasing hard physical band merch and music and giving it as gifts.  It’s not too late.  For cds, visit Albums on the Hill in Boulder or Twist and Shout in Denver … two great stores owned and operated by a couple of great guys who love our scene.

oskar-blues-no backgroundOskar Blues Fooderies!  I won’t post again until Jan 2, but I hope you’ll come hang out with me at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on New Year’s Eve … Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene is playing… and if you prefer a bit more twang to your rock and country, check out Halden Wofford & the Hi*Beams at the Original Grill and Brew in Lyons.

I don’t often get a chance to go out for an entire day to see a batch of new up and coming bands – unless I’m working the event.  Sunday I spent the day at Hodi’s Half Note in Fort Collins to see friends, and to immerse myself in seven hours of music from 10 bands, only three of which I knew anything about.

The event was the annual Scene Magazine “Fresh Talent Showcase,” a judged event that awarded the winner time in a recording studio, along with a pro grade photo shoot, a pro level consulting session with Yellowbright, and a slot on the Scene Magazine stage at the 2017 Arise Festival in Loveland next August.

Write Minded took home the top prize, but all of the bands brought game … Congrats to everyone who participated.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK:

besides writing and performing original music both as the leader of the Patti Fiasco, and as part of the country-folk duo Whipporwill, Alysia Kraft is not above giving us her own personal interpretations of other songwriters’ songs.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

I conceived of this idea as a way for you to discover some of the new music I played on the show, and to give you the chance to let me know which of the tracks you like, and think I should keep in rotation.  I get a lot of feedback from fans about what’s liked .. and what isn’t.

In order to be included in the MMMM poll, the band/artist must have an embeddable file available on SoundCloud, BandCamp (my favorite), Reverbnation or YouTube.

It’s not a competition.  It’s just a gauge of how well you like the songs I added this week.
