intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with the title song from one of Burlington’s coolest artists. He’s moved away, but still comes back to play now and then.

1.) My Hero, The Enemy – Gregory Douglass
2.) As Glass – Wren Kitz
3.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale
4.) This Land Is Your Land – VT Artists

It’s so cool that so many local artists got together to record this song as a boost to the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. It features Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, Marie Claire Johnson, and lots of others. Swale played a great show at Light Club Lamp Shop last Saturday and did a great version of that one. That’s a new song from Wren’s just released album For Evelyn. Great song from Gregory. I just ran into Abbie Gail since she just finished a US tour and arrived back in Burlington. Her band, Abbie Morin, will be at Nectar’s on Saturday. Here’s a live song from the road.

5.) Barstools – Abbie Morin
6.) Barstool Blues – Seth Yacavone Band
7.) The Call – Swillbillie
8.) Constant Disaster (live) – When Particles Collide

That’s a live version from Particles new album Live At The Sinclair. Great stuff from the rocking duo who will be on the road soon. Great song from a local band I have not yet caught. Seth did such a great job with the Neil Young songs at the WBKM birthday party last year. It’s cool to have a recording of that. Great song from Abbie. It’s time for the next song on Red Flannel Hash. I held off playing the album so I could start it so that this song would be appropriate. It’s chilly tonight, was 55 on Tuesday, was -13 (or so) on Saturday. It will be in the 40’s for the weekend. Well, for tonight this song is mostly true.

9.) It’s Cold – Black Rabbit
10.) Still Life Scene – Envy
11.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
12.) Endless Parts 1 & 2 – Elephants Of Scotland

What great versions of those Elephants songs. Those are from the live at Gettysburg album. The whole band is great, but how about the drumming and chime playing from Ornan McLean? Ornan is going through a tough time sine he lost his mother a couple of days ago and today is his birthday. I had to play a chunk of Elephants for him and had to play the song about him from one of his other bands. Best of luck and heal as soon as you can Ornan! Sean and Ann Mindell from Envy will be at Radio Bean next Wednesday in their new band The Nancy Druids. Great song from Rabbit. Last week I missed the Mountain Says No at the Monkey House, but just because I slacked, doesn’t mean you have to miss them.

13.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
14.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
15.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
16.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian

Killer song from Ninja. Great song from Phil from before he became affiliated. Great songs from Telephone and Mountain. This next song is about a crisis in America that necessitates the phrase Black Lives Matter.

17.) Blind Pigs – Rough Francis
18.) The Eldridge – Cameo Harlot
19.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
20.) The Territory – Hana Zara

Great song from Hana’s 2015 album The North. Cool rocker from Barbacoa. Cameo were a great band that featured Paul Comegno on guitar and vocals. Now he is just playing guitar with Rough Francis. OK, let’s take the energy down a bit with a cool song.

21.) The Alchemist – Pours
22.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
23.) Kids – Wren Kitz
24.) Doris – Wren Kitz

Those last two are the closing songs and pieces of effects from Wren’s new album For Evelyn. Cool new song from Homes. Now, how will Sean Witters pull that one off live? Fun song from Pours. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. Last week I had it well together but this week the work time change hours from the last couple of weeks are really catching up. I slacked and did a short show then filled the rest of the time with Bowie songs, which I might have done anyway.

Songs before:Suffragette City – David Bowie
It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

Song before: Station To Station (live) – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are The Sounds Of Burlington. It’s not as bustling in town this week but is a beautiful mellow night. I want to apologize since I think tonight is going to be a bit of a shorter show. My whole work schedule changed a couple of weeks ago and working early mornings Monday to Friday is taking some getting used to. I’m not sure if the change is permanent or temporary, but I’ll get used to it soon. Last Friday I got to see four great bands. This first band played another stunning show at The Skinny Pancake.

1.) If You Get Lost – Swale
2.) The Saddest Man – Myra Flynn
3.) Spi-Fy – Barbacoa
4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

Joe Adler and the Rangers played a wonderful show at Nectar’s last Friday. Myra opened and I picked up her Half Pigeon album and Saddest really jumped out. In hindsight I should have not left Barbacoa so soon, they played after Swale at the Pancake, but I thought the timing was tighter and Myra’s band was pretty amazing. Sometimes there is too much music in town. OK, let’s play the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

5.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
6.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains

Plains are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and I’m very psyched for the show. I love that new Elephants song. Mountain played a couple of stunning sets at Zen Lounge last Saturday. I love the Rabbit song, and all of their songs. I just got this next song last week and played it on last weeks show. I liked it so much I want to play it again.

9.) Barstools (live) – Abbie Morin
10.) Wiser – And The Kids
11.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
12.) Elanor Rigby – Screaming Broccoli

What a fun rocking cover by the late ’80’s Burlington band. I miss Ninja. Kids are out and touring the country. If they come to your town, go! Great song from Abbie Gail. This is another great Burlington classic.

13.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
14.) Extended Werewolf – farm

Both of those are such great songs. Well, I’m going to call it a night, but I have a bunch of Bowie stacked up if you want to listen for a while. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. You can likely guess which Presidential candidate was in town from the songs I played before my set. It was so warm in the studio, I had the window wide open and the tunes blasting out.

Before: This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT musicians
Orange Like Water – The Cush
Delirious – The Church Band
Strange Phenomena – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Winter finally arrived in the last week. It’s a bit warm tonight and will warm up this weekend, but it’s nice to have some snow and a little cold. Burlington is hopping tonight as there is a Presidential candidate in town speaking at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. There are lots of supporters and lots of protesters and lots of people peacefully participating in the process of democracy. It’s kind of a cool thing. Tonight let’s begin with some classic Burlington rock and roll.

1.) All My Life – Wide Wail
2.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
3.) Popular Crowd – Swale
4.) Lean In – When Particles Collide

I just love that song from the mighty road warrior duo. If you ever get a chance to see Particles, go. They always play a great show and play with other great bands. Killer rocker from Swale. They are playing a couple of shows this week, including doing a cover set from the Pants this weekend at ArtsRiot. They are playing as themselves Friday at The Skinny Pancake. Killer classics from Zola and Wail. OK, let’s play the next song from Red Flannel Hash.

5.) BS Passes – Black Rabbit
6.) Angels and Devils – Invisible Homes and Scott Mangan
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Into The Light – Great Western

Killer song from Western. Great brand new song from Elephants. That sounds nicely like an old Genesis song. Great unreleased song from Homes, with a little help. I just got that one and really like it. Great song from Rabbit!! This next singer just hit the road and is playing all over. She recorded this one live on the road.

9.) Barstools (Live at Otis Mountain Get Down) – Abbie Morin
10.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith
11.) The North – Hana Zara
12.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

It’s great to hear Bernie speak about real issues that will help people. This was recorded in the ’80’s and he is still consistent today. Local music writer for Seven Days, Dan Bolles asked several local people in the music business for top local album picks of the year, among other things. I feel fortunate that he asked my opinion. I could not decide between JV by The Mountain Says no, or Red Flannel Hash. If I had a third choice it would have been The North from Hana Zara. It’s a great song and a great album. Maryse Smith just moved to Philadelphia, but we would love to have her come back to play a show anytime. Glory is such a great song. Wow, Barstools rocked!! OK, let’s switch gears a little.

13.) The Alchemist – Pours
14.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
15.) Yardsale – Lendway
16.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler

Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger are playing Nectar’s tomorrow, so if you like that song, go check them out. I miss Lendway. Killer new song by Homes. It’s a bit odd, but it’s growing on me. Great song from Pours. This next band are playing Saturday night at the Zen Lounge.

17.) Long Term Sermon – The Mountain Says No
18.) Distance – Vetica
19.) Let’s Bury Bob – Screaming Broccoli
20.) Naomi’s Back – Fire The Cannons

Great song from one of the great rock bands that have played Burlington. Classic song from Broccoli. Vetica broke up, but just released a couple of albums of unreleased songs. Great song from Mountain. This next band put on a killer show just after midnight on New Year’s Eve at The Monkey House, and it was a great way to start 2016. I especially liked this song.

21.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Burn – The Dirty Blondes
23.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
24.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains

Great song from Plains. They will play the Monkey House soon. Powerhouse song from the Cush. Fun rocker from the Blondes. OK, let’s go classic Burlington.

25.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck (live) – Chin Ho

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

26.) Sayonara

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.Last week we were in the ninety degree range, but it’s cooled off nicely this week. It’s a cool evening. It’s nice night for a light coat and a long walk. This is Overcoat by Swale on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Overcoat – Swale
2.) Ease The Burn – Sarah Blacker
3.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
4.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard

Great new song from Francesca who is making some waves. Abbie is off touring the country. Check her out if she stops by your town. I was driving around yesterday listening to In Waves and Red Flannel Hash. A lot of Sarah’s songs grabbed me, and Ease just wanted to get played tonight. Swale turned 13 last Saturday and played a show at Radio Bean with lots of cool bands. They were so good and Eric Olsen and Amanda Gustafson have been so over the top kind lately, that I want to say an extra thanks for everything, especially the music. This next singer has an album of kids music coming out soon. She plays a show every Friday morning at Radio Bean.

5.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
6.) Marriage Song – Satori Bob
7.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
8.) Megan’s Song – Hana Zara
9.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

A great song from a great writer and performer. I think she will be at Signal Kitchen in December. Great love her madly line in the Hana song. Cricket are making waves in town and touring too. Gorgeous song from Satori. If marriage is the ties that bind, then why do I feel so free? Yay Linda! OK, here is the next song from No Need To Beg.

10. Co-Pilot – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
11.) Garden Flower – Maryse Smith
12.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist
13.) Emily – The Grift

Great song from the classic Burlington band. Great song from Jeremy. Maryse is just ridiculously good. I just love Phil’s sense of songwriting. I just got an e-mail with a new song from this band who used to play Burlington all the time.

14.) Donna – Rubblebucket Orchestra
15.) Unveiled – Pours
16.) Biological Immortality – Wren Kitz
17.) Two Sleepy Arms – Lendway

I miss Lendway. Cool weird song from Wren. Pours played the Swale birthday party too, and did a great version of that song. My brother Ken had some dental work done today, so I want to dedicate this to him.

18.) Perfect Teeth – When Particles Collide
19.) My Bitter End – Blue Button
20.) Bloodboy – Envy
21.) Asphyxia – Better Things

BT always play out and I keep missing them and really need to step up my game. They are very good. I’ve been playing a lot of new music so I though I’d toss in a classic Envy song. Killer song from BB who also played a killer set at the Swale birthday party. Particles are just a great band. This next song is a classic and I can’t believe I’ve never played it.

22.) Silver & Gold – Waylon Speed
23.) 1965 – The New Siberians
24.) We’re The Loops – The Mockingbirds
25.) Nowhere Feel Like Home – Fire The Cannons
26.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya? – Pinhead

Lots of classic Burlington rock in there, except for Mockingbirds who were from Rhode Island and played here once. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? OK, let’s let Black Rabbit take us out.

27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I’ve been working way too many days in a row (one more tomorrow), so I just threw together sets of music from different bands. I thought it came out well, except for that one mistake. Oh well, live radio.

Song before: A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop – Neil Young

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. We’ve seen lots of cool nights and cool mornings and warm days, but no real heat. There was a really cool sunset tonight but it’s 9pm and totally dark now. I’m going to dedicate this song to everyone who works for a living.

1.) I Got A Job – Maryse Smith
2.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
3.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith

Yes, you guessed it, I’m playing sets of music from a few bands to really go deep and let you see how good they are. Maryse is a great performer, has vividly real lyrics and is always impressive. Burlington always seems to have buskers playing music on Church st all summer long.

4.) Busker – Abbie Morin
5.) Shadowproof – Abbie Morin
6.) Better Half – Abbie Morin

Abbie is playing tomorrow late night at Radio Bean. Soon after, she is hitting the road to get her music out there. Best of luck! OK, let’s go classic Burlington.

7.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
8.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson
9.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson

Zoot is deservedly a legend in this town. OK, let’s keep the cool mystery theme going.

10.) Mysterious Mystery – Persian Claws
11.) Warm Chills – Persian Claws
12.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws

I just love the super cool sound of the Claws. This next band is playing at Manhattan Pizza and Pub Saturday.

13.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates

Great stuff from Phil and the guys. Hey, do you know what’s great for killing zombies? Weapons. You know what my favorite weapon is? Rock And Roll.

16.) Rock And Roll Is My Weapon – Ninja Custodian
17.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
18.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian

I saw Ninja a ton of times at Nectar’s back in the lat ’80’s and early ’90’s. They were always stunning. Now it’s time for the next song on JV, the brilliant debut album from The Mountain Says No.

19.) Long Term Sermon – The Mountain Says No
20.) JC and The Beast – The Mountain Says No
21.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No

All of those songs are so great. Thanks Mountain!!! This next band have been rocking this town for a decade or more.

22.) Scorned Woman – Dirty Blondes
23.) Oh Dirty Blondes – Dirty Blondes
24.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya? – Pinhead

Rats, I thought I had Ornan’s Song lined up. Sorry about that. Let’s continue on through the Pinhead set.

25.) Be A Good Citizen – Pinhead
26.) New Age Woman – Pinhead

If the Wards brought the punk scene to town, Pinhead took it from there, moved it into New Wave and lead the groundwork for the tremendous scene we now have in Burlington. This next band play out a lot and are one of Burlington’s best. Happy yesterday Birthday Eric Olsen.

27.) Edible – Swale
28.) Edible #2 – Swale
29.) Popular Crowd – Swale

Hmmmmm, Swale. OK just enough time for one more set.

30.) Tibbar Tibbar – Black Rabbit
31.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
32.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Hmmmm, Black Rabbit. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from doing my local music radio show. I walked in unprepared but think I pulled out a fun one.

Song before: The Rakes Song – The Decemberists

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s 9pm and already dark. It’s still been rainy and chilly at night and sunny and warm but not super hot. It looks like this will not be one of the warmer summers on record, but there have been many stunning days. I caught some of The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival last weekend and saw some great music. One of the artists that I really enjoyed was Abbie Morin, so I got her album and here is Peace Of Mind on WBKM.org and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Peace Of Mind – Abbie Morin
2.) I Walk The Line – Zoot Wilson
3.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
4.) Two Sleepy Arms – Lendway

The High Breaks played a super cool show at Radio Bean at the Precipice. Three of the guys used to be in Lendway, so I wanted to play Arms since I have no Breaks to play. I love Split Tongue Crow and that is just a gorgeous song. Fun cover from Zoot. I think he said that was the modern version. Abbie is going to hit the road soon. If she’s in your town, check out her show. After the Breaks set I ran into Todd Gevry and asked if he had heard of And The Kids. He said he had heard the name. I recommended staying and listening. After their set he seemed pretty enthusiastic. I thought they were great and they played a killer version of this song.

5.) All Day All Night – And The Kids
6.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
7.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
8.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
9.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

I’m missing the Republican debate tonight, and I’m assuming I’m just going to miss 10-17 people saying the same Approved Talking Points. I had to play Bernie to counter some of that. Bill’s message still resonates hard. Binger played a killer version of 3 at the Precipice, and some pretty killer other songs too. I caught a bit of Johnnie Day Durand playing saw at The Precipice and wanted to play Brothers to give you a hint, and to thank Joe for all that he has done to make our town sound great. Love that Kids song. I’m going to play this next song because I love it and it’s great.

10.) If You Get Lost – Swale
11.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
12.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn

I think I played all three of those songs because I love them and they are great. OK, on to the next song from The Mountain Says No’s album JV. This is the eponymous song.

13.) The Mountain – The Mountain Says No
14.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
15.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse
16.) Holmes, Sweet Holmes – Cameo Harlot

I miss Harlot. Crazy just played the Radio Bean last Tuesday. I love the Vetica song. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s go classic.

17.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
18.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
19.) Always Monica-Down At The Duck – Chin Ho

Three Burlington classics from three different eras. Great songs too. This is another beautiful song that I love.

20.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik
21.) WhoNeedsFriends – Paper Castles
22.) Clocks On the Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist

Great song with great lyrics. Thanks Jeremy. Castles played a killer set at the Precipice at the Light Club Lamp Shop. Great song from Anna. This next song seems to be getting some traction.

23.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
24.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I barely slept Thursday night for no real reason, just kept waking up then drifting back. I was pretty tired all day at work and got out just after 6:30 then raced home then raced downtown and arrived around 7:15 for Abbie Morin’s 7pm show at The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival but they were not open yet. I wandered downtown then it hit me, what music can you see just after 7pm on a Friday? I headed over to Nectar’s and caught four, or so, songs from Seth Yacovone Band, really just Seth solo, and he was really great. His gruff vocals spun some vivid stories and his guitar playing is so warm and precise. He’s a treasure that I don’t check out often enough.

After a bit I headed back to Radio Bean for the big show, and quickly found my way to the outside yard where Abbie Morin was starting to play. She played acoustic and sang some solid well constructed songs and Thomas Pearo played electric and really lit them up. At times they let the music go very quiet and at times let it build a bit and rock out. The first set wasn’t long, and when they wrapped up, I went back through Light Club Lamp Shop over to Radio Bean to see if the next band were ready to go. They were not yet, so I headed back to the yard. I got to hear three or four more songs from Abbie and Tom when I thought I heard a louder noise coming from somewhere.
I ducked back into the Bean and Binger were on. They were playing a cool song when I walked in, then followed with a new song, then a super new song that had never been played out. Both were pretty good. Dalton Muzzy‘s drumming was super solid and at times he threw in a furious flurry of notes, then slipped back into the beat seamlessly. Shakir Stephen wandered around the bass making it almost sound like he was playing lead while keeping the rhythm immaculate. Braden Winslow‘s calypso sounding ripping lead guitar runs added nothing but joy to the songs. They played that Can You Dig It Yes we Can song that sounds like Walk On The Wild Side, then said they had time for one more. They asked if anyone in the audience had a request, though it had to be one of their songs. I gave it a second or so, and no one said anything, so I blurted out Sequoia 3. They played an epic over the top killer version of one of the best songs currently happening in Burlington. It was great!
Being a bit hungry, I walked from the Bean, through !Duino! (Duende), through the Lamp Shop into the back yard, and got a Cubano from the Pincho cart. I took it back into the Lamp shop and slowly ate as Paper Castles put on a mellow ripping show. Their songs have a moody flow that occasionally finds some sweet choruses. The drumming was solid and Padraic Reagan‘s bass held the songs together nicely while his singing illuminated the songs. With both Jake (from Violet Ultraviolet) and Wren on guitar, there was some serious rocking going on. Wren used a screwdriver to pull out some intense slide sounds from the instrument. Jake just attacked his Les Paul and ripped out some killer solos. The set was really good, but after that I was done. I really wanted to stay until ROUGH FRANCIS played at 12:30, but there was nothing left in me. I took a slow walk home and crashed just after 11. I actually slept nicely, so let’s see how late I can make it tonight.
