I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. The opening song set the tone for the bands and music that followed.

Song before: Satellite – Guster

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I had great plans to see lots of music this week, but twisted my ankle on Friday and sat (with leg up and icepack on) out too much of it. It’s a bit better now so I should be all set soon. Today has been cloudy and cool and humid and I’ve been in a spacey sort of mood. Let’s take a trip through the last 30 years in town and start with Move Through Time by Persian Claws on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
2.) Pauses – Black Rabbit
3.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
4.) All My Life – Wide Wail

Killer song from a classic band from Burlington’s glorious ’90’s. Some people say Burlington bands come in waves and there are times when there is not much around. Even in those troughs bands like Video Pigeon were around rocking beautifully. Killer new song from Rabbit. Great song from the Claws!! OK, let’s stay in the ’90’s for a bit.

5.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
6.) Last Man Standing – Band X
7.) Jules Rosen and Joe Steel – Brave The Vertigo
8.) One More Grave – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae used to play in bands in town, then wrote the music column for Seven Days and is now working in DC to help find ways for musicians to get paid for their music. Yea!! I really wanted to check out Vertigo at Radio Bean last night, but the ankle said no. Killer song from Band X who sort of evolved into Elephants of Scotland. OK, let’s go on to the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through week after week, song after song.

9.) Who could Say – The Mountain Says No
10.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag
11.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
12.) Abilene – The Lonestar Chain

I’ve been watching the flooding in Texas and saw a mention on the Weather Chanel of Abilene and thought of Burette Douglas and this song. Killer song from Hana. Zag is one of the known unknown cool artists in town. Mountain will be at Radio Bean on Saturday and I really want to make it to the show. I was thinking of checking out this next band when they played Summervale today, but walking down the hill away from the radio station was not going to happen today, short of an act from God.

13.) Dear God – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
14.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox
15.) Holiday – Guppyboy
16.) Old Man – Will

Killer song from the Rutland band from the early 2000’s. When they broke up they became Thompson Gunner and Split Tongue Crow. Killer song from the classic ’90’s band. Jericho are playing around a bit and were really cool when I saw them a couple of months back. OK, let’s go back to the early ’80’s, or maybe ’70’s.

17.) At The Diner – Zoot Wilson
18.) 2012 – Lobot
19.) Waterlanding – Swale
20.) Ladders – Heavy Plains

Nice song from the super new band who will be at Nectar’s tomorrow. Swale and one other band will be there too. A few weeks back Chris Farnsworth gave me a collection of songs that Lobot had left over. That one was pretty cool. Hmmm, Zoot. This next band is the other one playing Nectar’s tomorrow.

21.) Ruffians – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
23.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
24.) Stop – REDadmirial

Admiral were at The Old North Ender last night. I had hopes of checking out some of them then heading to the Bean for Vertigo, but it was the couch and ice for me. I’ve got to go see them! Killer song from the 2000’s punk band. Gas was Beano Parker, from the Wards, side project and really rocked! OK, in classic Burlington style, this next band will be at the Bean at the same time as the Nectar’s show tomorrow. Rats!! I love this band.

25.) It’s Happening – Anachronist
26.) Sayonara – 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 tonight’s local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It had a mellow yet kind of intense feel, and rocked hard in the late middle.

Song before: Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a grey day, and I’m going to start out with some mellow songs. This first singer is playing out Saturday at Nectar’s with his band Waylon Speed. Lendway are opening and it might be their last show. This is Horseshoes and Hand Grenades by Kelly Ravin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Horseshoes and Hand Grenades – Kelly Ravin
2.) Chickadee da – Ryan Ober
3.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
4.) In Waves – Sarah Blacker
5.) The Territory – Hana Zara

That’s another great song from Hana’s new album The North. That’s a brand new song from Sarah, who is from the Boston area, but plays VT on a semi-regular basis. Abbie is playing Radio Bean tonight. Ryan is too but at the same time that I’m doing this show. OK, on to the next song on the Swale album that I am working my way through, song for song, week after week.

6.) You Are Not The Photograph – Swale
7.) Right Between The Eyes – Dirtminers
8.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox
9.) Try And Try And Try – The Snaz

The Snaz just represented VT at SWSX. Jericho are playing Radio Bean next Wednesday and I really want to catch them. Cool song from the American Typewriter album. Happy Birthday Joshua Glass and Happy Birthday Ted Pappadopoulos. Thanks Ted for sending me an early mix of a new New Siberians song!!

10.) So They Say – The New Siberians
11.) Megaphone – Joshua Glass Music
12.) Weight In Gold – Joshua Panda
13.) Shiny Side Up – Nother Mother Brothers

I’m just getting to know Shiny and wanted to play it again. I should have been playing Panda’s music for a while but am glad I’m starting tonight. Great song from Josh and I can’t wait for the new Siberians after that song! Here’s another classic VT band I have not played yet.

14.) You’re The One – Viperhouse
15.) All About You – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
16.) WalkingInCircles – RAQ

That song always makes me want to bounce around. Great song by the majestic Kat and her killer band. The Viper song was from the live at Ottawa album A couple of weeks ago I saw this singer open for Hana Zara and this song really caught me.

17.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist
18.) Ball And Chain – Band X
19.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
20.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian

Killer song from Ninja’s second full album Shepherd’s Pie. Pigeon rocked our town for a couple of years and left us songs like that. Killer song from Ornan McLean‘s old band. Let’s keep rocking.

21.) Hammerhead – Barbacoa
22.) Escape Artist – Zola Turn
23.) Devastation Celebration – And The Kids
24.) Hands All Over You – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Killer song from Peg. ATK just played in Montreal so Megan could play with them. Great song from the first Zola album when Jenn Karson was still in the band. She’s still doing cool things with sound at the Fleming Museum. When Jeremy opened for Hana one of his new songs really caught me too. He sent me a copy of it today.

25.) The Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
26.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara
27.) Fubar – Kelly Ravin.

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