Monday March 18, 2019

Happy Monday.  The big news over the weekend was the lineup announcement for FOCOMX-11, happening April 26 and 27 in Fort Collins.  FOCOMX marks the official start of the festival season in our region.  Now in its 11th season, the festival is the largest Colorado music showcase, not only in the state but perhaps nationally (as far as I know).

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

If there’s one element about 80’s pop rock that seemed rather ubiquitous throughout it was androgyny. Most knew the style as “glam rock” and Denver’s Love Stallion nails it to the core.  In Valentine, the third video single from the band’s “Unforgettable Ride” debut, lead singer Aaron Hart allows his girlfriend, his Valentine, to transform him into a glamorously  ambiguous performer, resplendent in his form fitting spandex, teased up feathered hair, lipstick and bangles, while belting out what might have risen to hit FM rock radio status circa 1985.

CP S13 EP03 2019

Monday Jan 14, 2019 – As I sat down this morning to put the finishing touches on this blogpost, I came across a Facebook post from G. Brown’s Colorado Music Experience.

“On this date in 1975, Joe Walsh earned a gold record for his third solo studio album, “So What.” Standout tracks included a remake of the Barnstorm track “Turn to Stone” and the haunting “Song For Emma,” written for Walsh’s daughter who had been killed in a car accident the previous year in Colorado. https://colomusic.org/profile/joe-walsh-barnstorm/

G. Brown is one of Colorado music’s living legacies.  His book outlining music history, and his newest endeavor – Colorado Music Experience – serve as prime research tools for my show.

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.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

WhiteWater Ramble founder Patrick Sites has always found a way to continue the band’s rocky-grass groove with strong voices up front – whether former lead singer Patrick Latella or current lead vocalist/guitarist, Damon Wood.  Damon’s background includes several years as the guitarist in soul/funk legend James Brown’s band.  Here, Damon brings a true Colorado country rock voice to a summer time “drinking song” jam.


MONDAY MORNING MUSIC MEETING

Don’t forget to let me know if there’s something I should be playing on the show.  I scour Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and Bandcamp to find you the freshest new music from around the state – hope you’ll help out by voting to KEEP or DELETE the new music shares in the MMMM each week.

CP S12 EP46 2018

Monday Dec 3, 2018 –There is NO MMMM this week. The couple of debuts I played had no embeds, being so new.  Instead, I direct your attention to the  BEST OF 2018 POLLS.   

That said, both the String Cheese Incident and the Motet put new singles out to radio.  The Motet’s Lyle Divinsky is the featured vocalist on the String Cheese Incident track. Taylor Scott shared a new single from his upcoming album, and the Symbols have a new album I recently reviewed.

One of the tremendous musical activities I was re-introduced to this year is the musical theater.  My girlfriend got us season tickets to the Bug Theatre in Denver. We also attended a couple of plays at the Curious Theatre, that were not musicals.

I hadn’t been to much in the way of theater over the past 40 years. I grew up in the theater and had legit aspirations as a high school senior.  I went into radio instead. #nocomplaints

My main take-a-way is there are some tremendously talented and skilled people acting on those stages, and some for whom it’s a genuine hobby.  Local theatre is much like the local live music scene.  It’s also another avenue for exploring music that many of us ignore.

I highly encourage a night at the theatre. Not every show will be great, but you’ll truly have an enjoyable time at every show.

NOW PLEASE GO PICK YOUR FAVORITES OF 2018.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

I was enamored by this prog-rock band earlier this year.  They released this video mid-November, but their EP is up for vote in the CP BEST OF 2018.  Digital Myle once again producing some of the best videos in the market.  Echoes in Reverie started as a side project for local music veterans Rachel Irvin, Bryan Stacks, and Luke Mott. What started as a weekly jam session, quickly became a musical ritual.

As this is the time of the year to give thanks – I cannot give enough to the stations and listeners who make this show possible.  I would love to meet you … and with that I’ll be appearing with my long time musical partner Chris Jackowski and local teenage fiddle phenom Jackson Earles at Red Truck Beer Company in Fort Collins on NOV 17, and with my full electric band lineup at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids in Longmont on NOV 24.  I hope you can come by so I can thank you in person for your support.

NEW this week YouTube Colorado Playlist of all the tracks from this week’s episode .. which includes new MMMM tracks from Foxfeather, AMZYKing Eddie, AMZY, Kid Reverie, Joe Johnson, and Tnertle.

Make sure you follow me on Spotify to find out what new artists I might be checking out.  This week’s Spotify playlist is short some fine tracks from SUCH, Angie Stevens & the Beautiful Wreck, Zephyr and Alpha Centauri

I found all of this week’s tracks on YouTube – the first CP YouTube weekly playlists.  Pls let me know what you think.

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Speaking of Zephyr — very very happy that they along with original lead guitarist Tommy Bolin will be inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2019.

Also being inducted is the truly legendary Freddie-Henchi Band.  Both Zephyr and the Freddi-Henchi Band were signed early on their careers in the late 60s, but wound up being more regionally famous as time went on;   Zephyr until Candy’s death in 1984, and the FHB until the mid to late 80s when various life issues (drugs, booze, etc) decimated the band.

FHB would re-emerge in the mid 90s for a brief run.  Freddi “Love” Gowdy appears with Chris Daniels & the Kings featuring Freddi Gowdy today.

CP S12 EP41 2018

 Monday Oct 29 2018 Well, that’s it.  October is in the books, and with it the 2018 new release year.  It’s been an exciting year of music – and now it’s time to start working on what records will be considered among the best of the past year.  Be looking for upcoming polls and posts with your chance to vote.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Betsy Mortenson and Harrison Goodale, the principles behind Sustain Music & Nature, an amazing organization that recently invited the Burroughs to participate in in Songscapes.  Here’s our chat:

VIDEO PICK OF THE WEEK

Anyone doubting that the Album of the Year is for 2018?  Oh, and have you heard of Nathaniel’s new candy bar?

“A Little Honey” Handcrafted Chocolate with Honey, Blood Orange, and Marigold

“Inspired by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ “A Little Honey”, this limited edition craft chocolate is a fundraising collaboration between The Marigold Project, Small Batch America, and Fruition Chocolate Works. Made with 74% dark heirloom Costa Rican cacao, organic honey, blood orange, and marigold petals. Packaged in a letterpress sleeve.

Proceeds from ‘A Little Honey’ will benefit The Marigold Project and Denver Urban Garden’s work to support Denver residents in creating sustainable, food-producing neighborhood community gardens. DUG knows that in order to make lasting change, the community needs to drive it. That’s why every one of their urban gardens and farms have been started and led by local residents. They currently have over 170 gardens in six counties in the Metro Denver Area.”
