Monday JAN 17, 2022 – I hope you had a chance to read John Wenzel‘s “2022 in Denver music: The Lumineers, Bluebook, Yonder Mountain and more new albums coming out this year” in the Denver Post/Reverb. John interviewed me and Alisha Sweeney, local music director at Indie 102.3 FM.

John highlighted the upcoming new album Optimistic Voices, (Feb. 12) by Bluebook along with new 2022 releases from Yonder Mountain String Band (Feb. 25) and The Lumineers (Jan 14). Add to that The Future from Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, which is a 2022 release – and still holding onto the #1 spot in the weekly TOP 5 (below)

Bluebook came onto the scene as the duo of Julie Davis (Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov) and Jess Parsons (the Still Tide, Patrick Dethlefs) with their debut EP The Astronaut’s Wife in 2018. The current lineup of Bluebook includes Hayley Helmericks (Snake Rattle Rattle Snake) and Anna Morset (The Still Tide).

Other upcoming new releases include Tejon Street Corner Thieves – Thick As Thieves (March 18) and Musketeer GripweedLong Time Past (spring/summer ’22), part two in a trilogy that started with the popular 2021 release More Than Ever. Also look forward to new releases from Cary Morin & Ghost Dog and A.J. Fullerton.

Monday NOV 22, 2021 – Happy Thanksgiving (yeah, I’m a few days early). Enjoy the time with your family and friends. Personally, I’m thankful for my incredible partner in life, my children, COLORADO music and radio, and YOU! Thank you for listening to the show and reading the Monday Morning Music Meeting (MMMM).

BIG changes in the TOP 5 weekly spins this week. Yes, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers are still dominant; while the Velveteers dropped down to #10, replaced by LOS MOCOCHETES, with Colorado jamband MAGIC BEANS filling in the #5 position this week.

I don’t usually debut (D) a release that is over a year old, but the album “The Offering” from Southern Colorado Americana country-folk singer-songwriter Xanthe Alexis struck a nerve with me this past couple of weeks and I wanted to share it. The album was originally released in August 2020 to tremendous praise from Americana reviewers around the country and for good reason. Check out the single The Offering below. Let me know what you think.
