From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Burlington has long had a love affair with the music of Leonard Cohen. Let’s begin with a new song written about the legend.

Song before: Winter – Tori Amos

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed spending the time with my family and friends. It’s now legal to play Christmas songs but I only have a couple lined up tonight. I want to begin tonight by offering my deepest condolences to Gabrielle Douglas who just lost her father. He sounded like an incredible man. Gabby is strong and I want to begin with a beautiful piece of music that she and Burette have given us.

1.) The Last Carol – The Cush
2.) Overcoat – SWALE
3.) Plains – Tom Pearo
4.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys

I just heard about the Torys. They are from Lyndon and sound pretty cool and I need to check them out more. Tom is a great musician. That’s from his new Headspace album. It has been chilly out and there have been several nights where taking a walk with a nice overcoat has been a lovely idea. Great song from The Cush. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and four live songs from Eastern Mountain Time.

5.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time
6.) All We Need – Eastern Mountain Time
7.) Low Down Mid-December – Eastern Mountain Time
8.) Same Ways – Eastern Mountain Time

I want to thank the band for being so great and to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound amazing. OK, on the last show I played the last song from the Surf Sabbath album so I have to start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week. Let’s begin Black, Blue, and White by The New Siberians.

9.) All The Kids – The New Siberians
10.) Judgement Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
11.) In The Country – Bardela
12.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association

Sarah played a great version of that a couple of weeks ago at Club Metronome. I love playing that song when it’s cold out to remind us of what is to come. Lovely song by Bardela. Judgement is from the upcoming album Book Of Zoo and I can’t wait for it. Great song from the Siberians from a stellar album. So, on the night before Thanksgiving I went to Radio Bean and Light Club Lamp Shop and saw these next 4 bands.

13.) All Is Lost – The Mountain Carol
14.) Mama – Ivamae
15.) Do U Love U? – Best Fern
16.) Can We Be Still? – Thanya Iyer

Thanya and Fern are from Montreal and are friends and did not know that each other was playing that night. That’s so Burlington. Ivama is amazing and Carol are a really cool band from Plattsburgh. So, we’ve had some dramatic sunrises and sunsets lately with vivid colors. The other night the sky was purple and that always makes me think of this song.

17.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
18.) Wish For Winter – Near North
19.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
21.) Militant Mind – Mycelium MC

That was recorded live at Jim’s Basement which is a pretty cool venue. Great song by the MC who is playing a show at 11 tonight at Radio Bean. Portrait paint a fascinating view of our state. Great song from Phil’s upcoming album. I can’t wait for that one either. Great songs from North and Zola. This gentleman will be at the Bean tonight at 11 too.

22.) You’re Not Listening – Forest Gray
23.) Hang Em High School – Barbacoa
24.) Supernatural – Ryan Ober and the Romans
25.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
26.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No

I figure that if I keep playing that song, someone will have to eventually get Mountain that sled. Great rockers from Ryan and Crazy. Something about the Ryan song make me think it would sound great with the Crazy one. I caught Barbacoa the night after Thanksgiving with my cousins Michael Pearson and Caleb Pearson at Foam Brewers and they were amazing as always. Great questions from Forest. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday October 19th. It can be streamed from our website or our Facebook link here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Stars Die – Porcupine Tree

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’m struck by the passing of people and the passing of stars that have happened recently. Let’s begin tonight with a cosmic connection that we all share.

1.) New Moon – Clare Byrne: Song and Dance
2.) Solitude – Alpenglow
3.) Resist – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
4.) Free – Francesca Blanchard

That’s a cool new song from Francesca and that’s a cool new song from Jeremy. The Alpenglow song has been running though my head lately so I thought I’d share. Great song by Clare. When I saw the first post about #MeToo I had that sinking feeling that almost every woman that I know was going to post one. I think it’s terrible that women have to endure this but I think it’s great that this is all coming to light. We should deal with this openly and move on to the path of just treating every other human being with respect and care. Come on people, I know you can step up. Here is a song about a woman being stalked and attacked and how it feels. I hope it helps us all move away from this behavior.

5.) Elevator – SWALE
6.) Mom Vibes – Thick Business
7.) A Cut In The Night Sky – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow

Great song from the Rutland Band. Cool song from Matt that we recorded a couple of weeks ago at Robot Dog Studio. Thick Business are from Boise Idaho and played last night at The Monkey House and they were amazing. Swale opened the show and it was just a great night. OK, this song has been running through my head a lot lately too.

9.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
10.) In The Country – Bardela
11.) Creatures – Hayley Jane and the Primates
12.) On My Way – Hover

That’s a classic from Burlington’s 1990’s. Cool new song from the Primates who are an amazing band live. Lovely songs from Bardela and Peter. OK, let’s play the next song on the Surf Sabbath album that I am playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.

13.) Sabbath Bloody Sabbath – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
14.) Inevitability Of Death – The Tragically Hip
15.) Mary’s Line Into This View – Ouzkxqlzn
16..) Oh You, You’re You – Ruckzuck

Last time Ruckzuck were in town I saw them 3 times in two days. They will be at The Monkey House on Sunday around 7 then at Radio Bean at midnight. I’ll see about working out that third show…Great song from Lauren Costello‘s band. Just for the record, I checked and the name of the band is not technically pronounceable. The music is nice and that’s all that matters. A lot of us are feeling the loss of Gordon Downie from The Tragically Hip. He was such a force of life it’s hard to imagine that he is gone. They rocked Burlington, and all of Vermont, for many years. Great song from the Surfers. OK, this band played a great show last Saturday at The Monkey House.

17.) Juliet – Cave Bees
18.) Again The Rain – Pinact
19.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
20.) Double Line – Black Rabbit

It was so cool to see Rabbit play Flypaper recently at the Monkey House. I thought I’d put a Rabbit song after the Claws song to give you a hint of what it sounded like. Pinact are from Scotland and played with the Cave Bees at the Monkey House show lat Saturday. Both bands rocked hard. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Black Blue And White – The New Siberians
22.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
23.) At The Hundredth Meridian – The Tragically Hip
24.) Springtime In Vienna – The Tragically Hip

I saw the Hip on a boat cruise and then open for Eric Johnson at Memorial Auditorium. I saw them headline Memorial many times. I’ve seen them in Montreal and Verdun and on at least three mountains in Vermont. I’ve seen them at Higher Ground, both the old one and the new one and thanks for sponsoring us HG. I saw them recently at Shelburne Farms and the Flynn. Every Show was great. Thanks guys!!

25.) New Orleans Is Sinking (live) – The Tragically Hip

Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, which will be the annual Halloween show.

Bardela at The Monkey House October 3, 2017   Leave a comment

IMG_6512

Bardela pic by Tim Lewis

 

I had a great time seeing music a week ago Tuesday at The Monkey House. I worked until 6:30 and had just enough time at home to almost fade. I had heard Cooie DeFrancesco sing and play guitar one night and really enjoyed her voice and presence. I had been meaning to Catch up with Arty LaVigne‘s band Radio Underground but the timing just never worked out. The fact that both were in Bardela made me rally and I took the long walk to Winooski.

I got in and settled and said Hi to Sal L. DeFrancesco and Kurt Ries and soon enough, it was time for Bardela to play. Arty and Cooie were joined by Mark Christensen on lead guitar, who also plays with Radio Underground, and Mike Scott on bass, though it’s normally Jeff Barrows. I think that when they play in this format they are Bad Bardela and when they have a drummer they are Big Bad Bardela but I could be wrong on that. Arty’s voice and guitar were front and center and Cooie’s voice blended sweetly. Her guitar joined in the rhythm or provided counter rhythms as needed. The bass filled out the sound and Mike’s guitar added some rock and roll sting. They had a breezy Southern California sound mixed with a bit of solid Vermont rock. They opened with one more story about the road then pulled out a huge sounding I Know You Rider. They sang about a California dreamer, but not the famous one. They sang about the end of summer then sang about how the wind came strolling through their door. They sang about whispers of love out in the country and closed the lovely set with Jazz Odyssey. Well, that’s what Mike said but to me it sounded like a song about living in L.A.

I had been pretty tired all day but was glad I made the push to get out the door. I said a couple of quick goodbyes then took the long walk home. I should have stayed for the next band but sometimes you can only do what you can do.
