It’s a busy week at work so I put in 8 hours, caught a couple of songs by Mal Maiz next door at Summervale, did a quick stop at home and was downtown by 9 to do the following local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM on both sides of the Champlain Valley.
This Is The Sound – Folksongs For The Afterlife
New Americana – Halsey
Swimming – Arc Iris
Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota
Don’t Be Late – Saga
The Awful Ache – The Church Band
Soft Revolution – Stars
Song before – Lost In The Supermarket – The Clash
From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. It’s a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.
I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.
The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.
I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.
11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.
Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.
That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.
I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
