KVNF Sports Report: 9/13/12

Hotchkiss outside hitter Brielle Palmer goes up for a kill shot against Paonia’s Carson Pipher (11) and Abby Campbell. Paonia won the match in three. The two North Fork rivals will play again on Oct. 6.

It’s been a busy week for local prep sports teams. KVNF’s sport reporter Tamie Meck has these highlights.

After a five-year hiatus, the rivalry between the Delta and Montrose football teams was resurrected last Friday, when Montrose junior Angelo Youngren scored three touchdowns and kicked five extra points in the Indians’ 35-0 routing of Delta. Montrose held Delta to just 84 yards rushing and 49 yards passing.

The Olathe Pirates will try for their first win of the season Friday night when they host Grand Valley.

The XX // Coexist

9.10.12 Young Turks

If you haven’t heard The xx before, their unique sound is hard to describe, but it's irresistible. (I still regularly turn to their first record from 2009 for everything from road trips to cooking music.) The music is soft, and although the vocals are lovely centerpieces, they also somehow fade into the songs. Chord arrangements are simple but combine to make beautiful tracks.

Bob Dylan // Tempest

Released 9.11.12 Columbia Records

Not many artists stay sharp, relevant, and great into their 70’s and later (Picasso, Neil Young, Vladimir Horowitz, et al., come to mind), I have no problem including Bob, at 71, in this elite group. If you are a Dylan fan and don’t have this record you must run, not walk, to your computer and order it.

Delta BOCC Hearing on Hen Houses, Round 2

One of them, Western Slope Layers, has been operating for a few months already on Powell Mesa. KVNF’s Ariana Brocious reports that the hearing was required after a district court sent the commissioners original approval of both applications back to the county for further review.

Sonny & The Sunsets // Longtime Companion

Released 7.31.12 Polyvinyl

Sonny Smith recorded a country album after a breakup...When our tummies settle from the chuckle that incites, two things become clear:

  1. The drive to use steel guitar in the midst of pain must be innate
  2. A twang suits Sonny pretty well.

If this is your introduction to Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, you are meeting a man part-genius, part-indulgent rambler. His score’s of albums under a variety of names (Palace Music, Palace Brothers, Palace, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Bonnie Billy, Bonnie 'Blue' Billy, & Will Oldham) are expansive and lonely, romping and snide, and all together strangely harmonious
