Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time Thursday September 14. It can be streamed from the WBKM Facebook page and will go as follows.

Song before: Fireworks – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. My heart goes out to the people of Florida. Please help out if you can. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the show. They will bring the giant GPN festival to the waterfront this weekend. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of bands who played at The Monkey House last night.

1.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Unveiled – Pours
4.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle

Turtle play cool instrumentals with Seinfeld references and are always fun. It was cool to see Chris Shar of Pours at the Landlady show last week but was even cooler to hear him play drums with the Shakers. Cones are from Los Angeles and we are so lucky to live in a town where they can just come and play on a Wednesday night. The Shakers haven’t recorded their full psychedelic sound yet but Child hints at it. More about that in a couple of weeks. OK, it’s time to play the last song on Loose Tooth and I will have to pick a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week.

5.) We Tried – Clever Girls
6.) I Like Flowers And I’m Not Afraid To Say It – Peg Tassey MUSIC
7.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
8.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara

Hana just successfully funded her new album with a Kickstarter campaign and I can’t wait to hear it. It was cool to see Abbie Gail from Hammydown play with Caroline Rose at the Madaila on Main show recently. I got to go to Ottawa and see the mosaiculture and to go to Montreal to see the botanical gardens this week so the Peg song jumped to mind. Great song and EP from Clever Girls. I”m sure they will have something new soon since they have lots of songs in their set that are not recorded yet. Last Saturday I saw a few classic bands at Higher Ground and one who have been playing around but I had just not seen. Here is one of their songs.

9.) Co2U Later – The Tsunamibots
10.) Projector – Vetica
11.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons played in the early 00’s and rocked us hard. Starlight were a cool ’90’s band. Vetica played some great shows in the 10’s and the Tsunamibots are putting on fantastic shows now. OK, let’s reach even further back into Burlington’s past.

13.) Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights) – The N-Zones
14.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
15.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
16.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old and Insane Donkey

That was a band that Seth Yacovone put together to play some Neil Young songs. Ninja used to play cool covers back in the late ’80’s at Nectar’s and other places. Bridget played last Saturday and are playing the next couple of Saturday’s at Nectar’s. N-Zones played back in the early ’80’s or late ’70’s. Burlington has a lot of great original music but we do like covers too. OK, this next band will make a rare appearance in town at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow at 7:30.

17.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby
18.) Say It – Anachronist
19.) A Company Man – Carraway
20.) Drug Laws – SWALE

I love the way that song continuously rocks. Such a fun song from Carraway. Great songs form Anachronist and Lindbergh. So, last Friday there were a bunch of cool bands who played at the Art Hop but heavy rain wiped out most of the outside shows. This band saw a break in the weather, got set up and began to play as the rain came back. This was the only song of their set and they are such troopers for even playing that one.

21.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
22.) Good Times – Grand
23.) Shark – Greaseface
24.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
25.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim

Sink will play a show this Saturday. Ask them for the detains since it’s an underground show. Doubtfire and Grand played a great show at Radio Bean Monday night. Grease are playing at the Monkey House on Saturday. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
27.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians
28.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
29.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT

Those are four of many the great songs to come out of the Burlington scene. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Immigrant Song – Led Zeppelin

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. There was lots of great music in town last week and a staggering amount this week. Let’s begin with a band who blew me away the one time I saw them. They are in town tonight at ArtsRiot.

1.) The World Is A Loud Place – Landlady
2.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Jessie – The Parts
4.) Hurricane – Landlady

I saw Landlady at Signal Kitchen once and was amazed. I’m psyched they are back in town tonight. This weekend is Art Hop in the South End. There are lots of bands playing and there is one amazing show in an alley by the Green Door which is behind ArtsRiot to the right and not far from Howard St. The Parts are one of the many bands playing there. That’s a brand new song from Phil Yates‘ upcoming album. Yea, Landlady. OK, let’s play the next song from Loose Tooth.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
7.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
8.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen

Zeus will be at the Green Door show as will Rabbit and Dino. Great song from Clever. This next band will be at a couple of shows at Art Hop including one at Friends of Jim’s Basement.

9.) 25 Miles Per Hour Blues – Better Things
10.) Voodoo Wave – The High Breaks
11.) America Religious – Caroline Rose
12.) Secret – Madaila

Madaila put on a great show on Saturday when they took over Main St and put up a stage. I caught Caroline’s set at that show and was very impressed. The Breaks are playing Friday at ArtsRiot for the venue’s 4th birthday party with some other bands. This next band are playing Friday by the Green Door too.

13.) Better Than You Think – Eastern Mountain Time
14.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
15.) Vermonter – James Kochalka
16.) Cocktail Hour – David L Jarvis

Dave used to play around in the ’90’s and is back in town. He’s working on a new baroque pop band called The New Victorians so it will be cool to see what that sounds like. I think they will play that classic song. Great song from James about what it’s like to be in Vermont and to not be in Vermont. Francesca will be at Hotel Vt this Friday. This next band played the after Madaila show at Nectar’s last Saturday.

17.) All Down Tonight – SWALE
18.) Staring Our The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
19.) Not In My Name – Dysfunkshun
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

21.) Bloodboy – Envy
22.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
23.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
24.) I Know, Right – The Mountain Says No

I haven’t caught up with Mountain in a while but love it when I do. Great rocker from Seth and the band. It was fun watching Hen put the Nightmare jump rope theme into song form at the Robot Dog Studio session last week. Classic from Envy. OK, there’s not much time left. Let’s end where we began.

25.) The Globe – Landlady
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
27.) In The Rain – Plan B
28.) Above My Ground – Landlady

I love how hard that song rocks at the end. Classic from B and quite appropriate with all the rain we’ve had lately. Great song from Whisper and another great one from Landlady. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Last week was a bit crazy in the political world but this week has seem a bit more calmness.

1.) Seed Of Healing – That Virginia
2.) Young Girl – Clare Byrne: Song and Dance

Great song from Maryse who used to play in town all the time but still stops by to enchant us. Ivamae’s songs are so beautiful. I have to go see her again soon.

17.) Good Times – Grand
18.) We Govern The Breeze – Humble Hero
19.) I Choo-Choo-Choose You – Mr. Doubtfire
20.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand

I had to play two Grand songs because they are so short and so great. Great song from Doubt. It was great to get to know Hero and they rocked that song hard Monday night. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Commune – Greaseface
22.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
23.) One Thousand Lies – Comrade Nixon
24.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Doom always put on great rocking shows. They will be at Finnegan’s on Saturday. Comrade are from NY and just put out a really intense album. Hen are playing Friday at 11:30 at Radio Bean I will likely miss the show since I have to work early in the morning and be responsible but have a feeling I will catch up with them soon. Grease are at Jim’s basement tonight. I saw them once and liked them and will catch up with them again. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Drug Laws – SWALE
26.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN Unit
27.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
28.) Sober – Vedora

I miss Vedora but they put on some rocking shows and left us with some great music. Sunday is the last episode of this season’s Game Of Thrones so I thought I should get the Mountain song on now. It was cool that the California rockers who make up BERN rearranged the Ramones song to be about Bernie. Hmm Swale. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.

Song before: Looking For A Place To Happen – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a great week for music and I’ve been getting out to as many shows as possible. This first performer took the stage for the first time in many years last Thursday and sounded as great as ever. This is the song she opened with.

2.) (What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding – Elvis Costello
3.) The Art Of Giving In – 1881
4.) Oliver’s Army – Elvis Costello

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station and for bringing so much great music to town. They are bringing Elvis Costello to the Shelburne Museum on Sunday and I could not be more excited. That’s the next song on 1881’s series of EP’s called Lights, Camera, Action. I had to stick that one in between other songs since the intro and outro are so fun. Great songs from Elvis and It was so great to hear Peg sing again. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog. Tonight we feature the amazing Andriana Chobot.

5.) Dig Him – Andriana Chobot

9.) Urban Country – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
10.) Elevator – SWALE
11.) My New Mix Tape – Eef
12.) On My Way – Hover

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. Eef played around in the ’90’s too but got back together about a year ago for a show and I’ve loved the song Mix Tape ever since. That Swale song has been stuck in my head all week. I hope it gets stuck in yours too. Great song from David and the band. This next band are at Red Square tonight.

13.) Lovely Day – gneiss
14.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
15.) The Light – Kat Wright
16.) Salty Things – Queen Tangerine

I had a great time seeing music Wednesday night at Nectar’s. The show was set to start at 9 and I got myself moving around 7:30 and thought I might grab some food before the show. I looked at the calendar just before leaving and realized that the performer who was on at 7 was one that I should see too, and quickly made my way downtown.

I got in, got a seat at the bar and ordered food. I listened from afar as Haley Jane sang and played guitar. I had seen her band, Hayley Jane and the Primates and knew she was an amazing singer and front woman, but had not heard her play solo. She was as cool as I expected. She played a lovely slow song about spreading love until the day she is gone. She played a sweet version of Gillian Welch’s Look At Miss Ohio. She teased a new song then closed with a song about talking to the spirits at the Elmwood graveyard in case that’s where your head is going. I should have gotten there earlier and payed closer attention, but really liked what I heard.

I was at the front of the stage and ready to go at 9 and Joshua Glass Music began to play. He started singing and playing acoustic guitar with a song about being happy then played Zoe’s song for his daughter. He switched to keys for a summertime love song about having nothing to do. He resurrected the first song he ever wrote and played it through and older and wiser Josh and Satan’s Son was nicely done. He switched back to guitar for a new song called And Together which was really good. He played a couple of his classic songs. Man On The Side sounded great on keys and What’s In California? is a great guitar song. The first time I heard that I had it running through my head for weeks. He switched back to keys for the catchy Miss Go Away then played a song about using your Facebook status as a Megaphone. He capped the set with a song about staying here by myself. It had been ages since I had heard him play and I was elated for every note.

Up next Mal Maiz filled the stage. They started as a trio and played a cool instrumental with a Latin groove. They left the stage and a guy with an acoustic guitar played and sang and was joined by a woman who sang as they played a Fleet Foxes cover. After that, Maiz Vargas Sandoval and the full band got back up and played a half a dozen more Afro-Cumbia songs. The lyrics were all in Spanish so I missed them all but loved the feel and the flow of their music. He sang and played guitar and was joined by two very articulate guitar players, a stand up bass player and a percussionist. They had the small but mighty crowd dancing to their infectious rhythms. They played one new song that they had just recorded in Montreal so hopefully that will be out soon. They wrapped the set with Maiz playing a metal rocket shaped percussion instrument as the band jammed hard. It was a really fun show.

After a quick set break, the Andriana Chobot trio got up to play. With Cody Sargent on drums and Patrick J. Markley on bass, she sang and played keys to her amazing songs. Her songs are strong and lovely and just fill the soul. She sang about a bit of your heart. She sang a song about staying. She pulled out fun covers of Ain’t No Sunshine and Come Together. She played her glorious song Cascade. She sang a song about how she used to get postcards from friends and how they slow down over the years and eventually stop. I guess there’s nowhere to go but here. She played a huge rocker with a jazzy tinge. She ended the night with a song about changing her mind then played a requested encore. She left us in a quiet mood with the gorgeous Not I.

I did not hang out very long and took the lovely walk home. I’m so lucky to have so much great music so close.

Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will stream at WBKM.ORG and (FB) on Thursday July 13th from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: Do It Again – The Kinks

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  Last Friday Swale finally released their new album There’s No One Here.  It’s a double album with red vinyl and lots of amazing artwork.  There are a ton of fantastic songs on the album  Let’s begin tonight with what is almost the title song.

1.) Loser – Swale

2.) High Flying Bird – Anders Parker

3.) One From Two – Linda Bassick

4.) Lowdown – Vedora

Vedora rocked our town for a couple of years and Caroline is still out there making similar sounding music.  Great song from Linda.  Cool song from Anders album The Man Who Fell From Earth.  That’s such a fun and sad song from Swale.  They excel at that, as you will hear throughout the course of the evening.  OK, here is the next song on Action, the EP I am playing all the way through song after song week after week.  It’s the third EP in their “album” Lights, Camera, Action.

5.) Mass Murderer – 1881

6.) Cereal – Carraway

7.) Bird In A Cage – Swale

8.) The Nighthorses – The Cush

When listening to the new Swale album something about Bird reminded me of the Cush song so I thought it would be fun to play them back to back.  That’s an interesting way to spell the Carraway song.  Great stuff from 1881.  This next band are playing at Sidebar tonight.

9.) Taung Child Mastered – The Dead Shakers

10.) Spastic Tactics – The Edd

11.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants Of Scotland

12.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Great song from Siberians Black Blue and White album.  Great song from Elephants.  Nice trippy song from the Edd who will play a show for us in a few weeks.  I loved the Shakers the one time I saw them.  Last night I went to Nectar’s and saw these two bands, and need to get some music from the other one who played.

13.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

14.) Megaphone – Josh Glass

15.) Silver Dollars – Banana Schlitz

16.) Felon – Swale

Another great new Swale song that they have been playing at shows for a while now and I finally get to play it for you.  Banana will be at the Flynn Exposure series tomorrow at 5 or so.  Josh and Andriana were amazing last night.  Mal Maiz and Haley Jane were lots of fun too.  We are in the middle of summer and this song is so appropriate.

17.) Endless Sunkissed Lover – Gneiss

18.) Break A Leg – David Rosane And The Zookeepers

19.) Elevator – Swale

20.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

I love how positive and fun that song is.  Super poppy song from Swale about a frightening event.  David and the band will be at American Flatbread next Wednesday.  Gneiss are at Red Square next Thursday.  Here is another song I have heard for a while around town that I now get to share with you.

21.) All Down Tonight – Swale

22.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

23.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls

24.) Control – Ratboys

Ratboys are from Chicago and came and played a show on Saturday at Sidebar with Clever Girls.  Both bands were great.  Joe and his band played a great version of that one a week ago in Winooski.  Great song from Swale.  This next singer is performing tonight for the first time in ages and I could not be more excited!

25.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey

26.) 25 Mile Per Hour Blues – Better Things

27.) 22R – Cave Bees

28.) Drug Laws – Swale

I love how hard that song rocks continuously.  Bees and Things will be at the Monkey House on Saturday.  I love Peg.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
