Music: Pass The Mic: Artists and labels on 2019

Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band (Nato Coles)

1. What are your top five albums that were released in 2019? (In order 1-5)

  • Eleganza - Full Length
  • Smarthearts - On The Line
  • Vacation - Zen Quality Seed Crystal
  • Partial Traces - Low Definition
  • Tommy and the Commies - Here Come...

2. What band did you discover in 2019 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?

Nothing really stands out, not this year. Just delving further into stuff I already listen to. Lucinda Williams and Willie Nelson deep cuts maybe?

3. How will you remember 2019? (In terms of music)

We finally, finally, FINALLY released our second studio and we're very proud of it!

4. What can we look forward to from you in 2020?

More shows and new songs, but probably not a new record.

5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2020?

I hope Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires put something out consisting of new material.

6. What is your favorite way to pass time while on tour? Any apps, podcasts, etc you're into?

I interpret this to mean pass time while in the van on tour? Because out of the van, I like seeing old friends, making new ones, and plenty of intoxicating substances on the side. In the van: reading books in the daytime, reading articles on my phone at night. I don't listen to all that many podcasts but I like the PosCast with Joe Posnanski and Michael Shur.
