OCT 24, 2022 – We’re back! That was one hellova long month traveling from coast to coast in the USA. Happy to be home and bringing you new music from here in Colorado.

New releases came out while I was away from Gasoline Lollipops, who jump straight into the TOP 3 this week – and The Velveteers, whose new single See Me is sure to pick up plenty of love along the Front Range, at least. It’s already the #1 most spun new Colorado release at 105.5 The Colorado Sound.

The Colorado Sound – VOL 4, EP15 2012

It is soooo great to see the daytime temps up in the 70s and 80s again along the Front Range.  Time to drop the top, make a half dozen mix cds and get some open air listening in while I’m scurrying back and forth between festivals – which for me started last week with FOCOMX (340+ bands in 37 venues) … next up for me is the CHUN People’s Fair – 1st wkend in June at Civic Center Park in downtown Denver.  In the meantime, as folks keep asking me what I’m really diggin nowadays …..

If you can’t get excited about a new Leftover Salmon record, you’re just not not a true Colorado music lover.  So, HELL YEAH I’m excited to get Aquatic Hitchhiker.  Vince Herman messaged me this week … record’s on the way.  I’m stoked.   It’s the first new album of all original tunes in like 8 years!  Hope to have it in time for EP16 next week.  Here’s a taste of what we can expect on the new album, courtesy of eTown.  If you can’t tell I’m excited, you don’t this old goat too well 😉 

Megan Redmond – Dreamland — a tasty bit of crossover pop country/americana from this young lady who is playing damn near every festival event of the summer from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins in 2012.  Not since Katie Moffatt in the early 70s has there been, to the best of my knowledge, a top female pop country artist break out of Colorado.  Her 6 song debut ep is full of songs she wrote or co-wrote, and was produced in Nashville with some top session players.  The first single, “Falling,” was placed on industry news leader ALLACCESS.COM’s “Cool New Country” highlight list… then landed on Clear Channel Media’s show on hot new country propelling “Falling” onto the Top 100 Country charts on both Mediabase and Nielsen BDS. 

Rebel Tongue – Movin On … several years ago now I got hipped to U.S. Pipe – a band that featured lead MC Azma Holiday.  That band broke up.  Azma and some of the members of the Pipe moved on – to REBEL TONGUE.  I knew Azma as a rapper – NOW I know him as a soulful singer and rapper with a group of funk masters backing him up.  Give me a band with a wickedly tight and groovin rhythm section, a couple of horns, and a front guy who OWNS an audience and I’m a sucka for love like this anytime.  Here’s the official teaser they came up with.  

Mosey West – Merica — Hmmmm …. over the past two years this band, originally called Merica before changing their name to Mosey West, has reaped more praise and more accomplishments here locally than just about any band I can name outside of those who have gained national attention — i.e. The Lumineers or Tennis.  Expect even greater praise and accomplishments in 2012.   I expect this record is going to be listed on many critics lists as a “best of 2012.” 

I’m not going to include an outtake of News & Notes this week.  Over the next couple of days, I’ll present the story about Biodiesel for Bands in text form.  It’s a great story – a great opportunity – and a great idea.  So watch here for that …
