Song before: Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to open with a serious heavy song or a fun happy one, so let’s do both.

1.) Elevator – SWALE
2.) You Gotta Move – Hayley Jane and the Primates
3.) Don’t Tell Me To Smile – The Red Newts
4.) Love Me Forever – Steady Betty

That is such a lovely song from Betty. I agree with the Newts that you should never tell a woman she has to smile. She can figure out whatever expression she chooses. Nice rocker from the Primates and great song from Swale. I want to thank Ben Slotnick – Mandolinist for turning me on to this next artist.

5.) Feeling Small – Abby Sherman
6.) Liar – Maryse Smith
7.) [name] – Adrienne Cooper Smith
8.) Modern Love – Ouzkxqlzn

That’s such a cool take on the Bowie song. Lauren Costello is just amazing. I love the electric banjo on Adrenne’s song. That’s a classic from Maryse and a great new song from Abby.

14.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
15.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
16.) L Ron Hubbard – Humble Hero
17.) Black, Blue, And White – The New Siberians

18.) Collider – Doom Service
19.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC
20.) Vampire Queen – Nechromancer
21.) Space Odyssey – Aliendog

Such a great song from Ruckzuck. Hopefully, they will come back and visit again soon. I love that Shakers song. It was great seeing David and the Zookeepers in a library in Fairfax. The tour continues to Vergennes tonight. I love how Francis are staring racism in the face and fighting for justice for all, the way it should be. Particles will stop by town in a few weeks, so I wanted to get you ready. Bees are opening for Francis on Saturday. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.

inro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I can seen you and you are amazing. You are beautiful. You can let that shine into our world at any time. Let out your super powers.

1.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers
2.) Interstellar Kid – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Chosen Names – Julia Caesar
4.) Girl, Friend – T-Rextasy

Rex are from New York but stopped by town last Saturday to play at the Ramble showcase down by North st and North ave. They were so fun. Julia opened that show. Great new song form Jeremy’s new album Threaded. I love that new song from the Shakers. More about that in a bit. OK, here’s a delightful song from a delightful band.

5.) Red Rose – The Zii Trees
6.) Don’t You Wanna Know – The Thursday Torys
7.) St Patrick’s Day – Carraway
8.) Morning Again – Doll Fight

I miss Fight. They rocked so hard. Super cool song form Carraway. Great song from the Torys new album Future Folk. I’m sure I’ll get more on the air in the next few weeks. OK, here is the next song on The Uncanny Doom Service album. It’s cool that they tossed in a couple of clips of the Twilight Zone episode that this song was written about.

9.) Monsters Are Due On Maple Street – Doom Service
10.) Don’t Want To Know If You Are Lonely – Black Rabbit
11.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes
12.) Chum On The Drums – Bee Bee Sea

I don’t know it for sure, but it really sounds like Sea are singing Ornan is a chum so I had to play it with the Blondes song to celebrate the wonderful person Ornan McLean. He’s been through more than anyone should have to go through lately. We love you Ornan. Great cover from Rabbit and great rocker from Doom. Is it really that easy to dupe us humans? Sigh. OK, relax, get nice and chill, get yourself in a happy mood and let’s go. Let’s take a dive into a new album called All Circles Vanish.

13.) Can You Take Me Back – The Dead Shakers

15.) Headless – The Dead Shakers
16.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
17.) Websdr.ewi.utwente.nl-8901 – The Dead Shakers

That is such a fun and trippy album. There’s a lot more to it but that’s a nice chunk. Thanks for being so amazing Kevin Bloom! OK, I’ve been playing a lot of short songs tonight. Let’s stretch out a little.

19.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland
20.) Lines And Spaces – The Cancer Conspiracy
21.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian
22.) The Road – Anders Parker

That’s such an amazing song from Anders. Great song from Casey Rae. Cancer played around in the ’90’s and still do shows now and then. I’m not sure what’s happening with the Elephants now that Ornan is no longer drumming for them. Either way, that’s a cool song. OK, this next band played the Ramble show too.

23.) Gorilla Monsoon – Barbacoa
24.) Who Do You Love? – The Red Newts
25.) My Life In The West – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

I love that song from Whisper. David and the band are continuing their series of shows in Vermont libraries. They will be in Fairfax tomorrow and I may have to catch that one. I chose West for obvious reasons. After the show at the Ramble I walked the 10 or 20 feet over to The Old North Ender and caught some songs by the Newts. They played a fun version of that one and some cool original tunes that I will have to track down soon. Barbacoa are just amazing. OK, let’s take a deep dive into Heavy Flow, the new album from Julia Caesar

27.) Falter – Julia Caesar
28.) Nose Dive – Julia Caesar
29.) Ode To the River – Julia Caesar
30.) Hear Me Now – Julia Caesar

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of music. I missed you last week. I was on vacation and saw and bought a ton of music. Let’s begin with an artist I saw last Thursday at Ruach HaMaqom Synagogue.

1.) Intro/May 2017 – Adrienne Cooper Smith
2.) Oak Tree – The Beerworth Sisters
3.) Stars – The Zii Trees

Trees are so cool. I caught them Thursday at Radio Bean. I saw Julia Beerworth play with Josh Glass a couple of weeks ago and loved her voice and guitar playing.

4.) Veil – Ivamae
5.) Changes – Ivamae

8.) Crimson – Julia Caesar
9.) Like Beads – Anachronist

12.) Veratrum – Piqued
13.) Frosty Pink skies – Miku Daza
14.) Ego – When Particles Collide
15.) Falter – Julia Caesar

Yet another great Julia song. Particles could be anywhere. I thought that song would fit well in that set. Cool song from Miku’s album It’s A Fairy Tale, and a lovely song form Piqued. This next artist is lighting Vermont media on fire with their tour to support local libraries.

16.) Enemy – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
17.) L Ron Hubbard – Humble Hero
18.) Sugar Rush – Miku Daza

OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Earthquake – ROUGH FRANCIS
21.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand
22.) F*ck the Alt-Right – Tetsuo
23.) Brave Coward – Green Chapel
24.) Sonic Boom – Bee Bee Sea

BBS came over from Italy and played a show at The Monkey House that I’m still reeling from. Chapel, Tetsou, and Grand played a killer show at Nectar’s a week ago Monday and all of those songs were played. Great new song from Francis! OK, let’s ease up a bit and jam out.

25.) Sideways – Binger
26.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys
27.) Hear Me Now – Julia Caesar

The Dead Shakers and Bee Bee Sea at The Monkey House July 17, 2018   Leave a comment

The Dead Shakers pic by Tim Lewis

 

I had a great time seeing music last night at The Monkey House. I got motivated close to 8 and took the lovely walk to Winooski. I got in and settled and soon enough, it was showtime.

The Dead Shakers took the stage as an eight-piece band with two saxes, drummer, percussionist, bass, guitarist, accordion/horn player, and Kevin Bloom singing, playing guitar and unleashing cool effects. The songs had a chunky funky psychedelic groove that was delightful to slip into. They opened with one that had a David Lynch vibe with occasional outbursts of guitars as Kevin sang take me back where I started. The next one had that lovely groove until the drummer kicked the whole band into full gear and they rocked us hard. There they go. I think the next part was three or four songs run together, but it’s so easy to just get lost in their flow. Lyrics like there are no such things as touchdowns and wish not want not gave way to heavier riffs and maybe the war is coming soon. Kevin kicked off a recording that spoke of the early part of the Shaker movement and they followed with a sweet version of Taung Child. A long jam followed and concluded with the advice to not go surfing. They ended the set with an homage to Kevin’s cat called Superpowers. It’s always a good time when the Shakers take you out for a spin.

I hung out through the set break, then Bee Bee Sea hit the stage with fury. The guitar/vocals, bass/backing vocals, drummer power trio played loud and fast. The music had a classic punk feel but the songs were longer and had a garage rock and surf noir structure and timing. They featured some of the most frenetic guitar playing I’ve sen in ages, and that’s saying a lot. The drummer was just as fast and threw in lots of thrilling fills. The bass player glued the songs into perfect wholes and added nice touches with his backing vocals. I didn’t catch many of the lyrics as I lost myself in the entrancing flow of the songs. The revved up version of Let’s Live for Today was a delight but trying to figure out where they were taking their own songs was the best part of the show. They played for an hour or so then closed with a burst of power that had the guitarist up on one of the amps, a couple of false endings, the drummer in a fun puppy hat, and the guitarist going it alone to end it all. Just for the record, I missed getting a picture of the drummer at the end, so if you want to see it, you will have to show up at one of their gigs. It’s hard to quantify how brilliant they were, but I was in a state of bliss for every moment of the show.

I hung out a bit and chatted with Matthew Kloss and the band as I bought a CD. It’s time to start listening to it and getting to know Seas songs for real.
