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.

Near North, Black Rabbit, and The Mountain Says No at The Monkey House October 7, 2017   Leave a comment

Near North pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music a week ago Saturday at The Monkey House. I met up with Nathan Curtis and we headed out for what I thought was a doors at 8:30 show at 9 night of music. We arrived just before 9 and The Mountain Says No were on and playing Statistik. Fortunately, the bartender was fantastic and I was in front of the band for the last third of the song. They sounded heavy and powerful and fantastic. King Grifter rocked hard and had soaring vocals. They followed with a new fast heavy thunderous song that may be called If You Lie. They eased back a tiny amount for the moody 3,000 Incubators. Restaurant always rocks hard but it took an extra heavy turn at the end. They sped up the beginning of Who Could say then closed the set with a new song with a heavy beginning and end and a moody middle section. I think might be Light Bright Lord since I got a peek at the set list after the show. I think I just missed Machu Piccu, but really should have been there for every glorious moment.

The Mountain Says No pic by Tim Lewis

Nate and I hung outside at the tables for the set break, but soon some sound came from the stage and I rushed inside. Black Rabbit began a little slow with the searing BS Passes that has that easy to sing chorus. They followed with a fast heavy Mark My Words and we were off. They played a super fun new song with wonderful Darlene Scarano backing vocals. Per setlist.fm it was called Prime. They rocked out Too Good then thanked Bill Mullins and Dee Claw and played a fantastic version of the Persian Claws song Flypaper. I was elated. Another new song called The Shutout was great and had a let me in let me out vibe. The Original Original rocked furiously then they eased back for another new song called Quiet Down. They spoke a little about being sad about the passing of Grant Hart and played a set of Husker Du Covers. What’s Going On, Don’t Want To Know If You Are Lonely, and Turn On The News were fantastic. They went back to their songs for a blistering Double Line then rocked out another new song called Jumble. They closed the set with Sayonara and I was so psyched that they have so much great new music. New album soon?

I chatted with a bunch of cool people, inside and out then heard music begin and rushed back inside. Near North were there to release their new album Most Every Night, and release it they did. They opened with Come Kiss Me then played the full album all the way through. The album has a nice rock sound and all the songs sounded great onstage. Get Loud had some sweet guitar work. Gone was slow and gorgeous. Saved had an especially nice Rickenbacker bass sound. The tenth and final song on the album, Dead Inside (Really Alive) rocked nicely and kept me in a happy place. They followed with a new song that may be called Ghost. From there they played a song about how I’ll never be the way you want and followed with a song with a dramatic rock opening. They played a song about waking up and being one with the floor and played one about a pile driver. They played a new song called Skylight and used a drop D to sound a bit more metal. They closed the 21 song set with a song about how it’s your heart that is broken and not mine. The whole show was pretty epic.

It was late so we headed out quickly. Nate dropped me at home and I was happily asleep shortly thereafter. What a great night.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday October 5th. You can stream it from our Facebook page link here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song Before: I Don’t Like Mondays – The Boomtown Rats

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a tough week to be a music fan what with the shootings in Las Vegas by a man who’s mind just broke, then the untimely death of Tom Petty. The only think I can think of to do is to celebrate the people who are out there making art and music and spreading love and joy every day. Let’s begin tonight with a new band that I don’t know a lot about but are engaging the world with their music.

1.) The Mountain Carol – The Mountain Carol
2.) The Crow – Bardela
3.) Homesick – Jakals
4.) Safe To Say – SWALE

It gives me no end of comfort to know that Swale are out there making and playing great songs like that. Jakals are from Boston and came to visit The Monkey House last Saturday and put on a wonderful show. That song really stood out. I caught Bardela at the Monkey House on Tuesday and loved how Arty LaVigne and Cooie DeFrancesco‘s voices blended. The other two guys in the band were pretty good too. Cool song from Carol. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog.

5.) Done Saving Bones – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
6.) A Cut In The Night Sky – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
7.) Frozen Winning Streaks Of A Gambler – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
8.) Paper Doll – Matt the Gnat and the Gators
9.) A Monster’s Holiday – Matt the Gnat and the Gators

I want to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound great and thank Matthew Bryan Hagen and Caroline Marie for such an amazing performance! Also, thanks to Burlington Beer Company for the tasty libations. Matt just had a birthday so Happy Birthday Matt again. OK, lets move on to the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song week after week. It is an album that features Matt on guitar.

10.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
11.) Hurricane Jane – Hayley Jane and the Primates
12.) Lovely Day – gneiss
13.) Come Kiss Me – Near North

North are about to release a beautiful new album called Most Every Night at the Monkey House on Saturday. Gneiss are at Red Square tomorrow evening. The Primates just released their new album We’re Here Now. I love it when they do Hurricane live and am happy to have a copy of the song that I can play. The Breaks are so great, whether they are in their usual mode or the Sabbath mode. OK, these next two bands will play with North on Saturday.

14.) The Invisibles – Black Rabbit
15.) Machu Picchu – The Mountain Says No
16.) The Mime – Joe Adler
17.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Sometimes it’s easy to feel lost and like there is no home and that song touches on that. Just remember, we all feel that way and can help each other make a home in our vibrant community. Joe is a true treasure and brings us lots of music. That’s such a great song. Cool songs from Mountain and Rabbit and I can’t wait for Saturday. So, a few weeks ago The Tsunamibots made me the director of robot propaganda and I thought I better try and live up to the title.

18.) Robotic Meltdown – The Tsunamibots
19.) Robots Making Love – Pinhead
20.) I Think I’m turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future
21.) Rise Of The Robots (Reprise) – The Tsunamibots

I hope you enjoyed that fun set by such creative musicians. This next song was recorded at Robot Dog Studio and features Matt Hagen on bass.

22.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
23.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
24.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
25.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians

Such a fun song from the Siberians. Druids played a great version of that one last week at the Monkey House. Francis are a treasure and that song always rocks. Great rocker from Hen. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Cinema – YES (official)

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. A week and a half ago a gentleman came to town and played a show at Radio Bean on a Sunday night. Let’s begin with one of his songs.

1.) What We Started – ROSEDALE
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Release Your Records – SWALE
4.) Falling – Xiu Xiu

Xiu will play tomorrow at Club Metronome and they sound pretty cool so I may have to check that out. I always know which new Swale song to play by checking and seeing which one has been running through my head all week. I hope that one gets stuck in yours, if you want. I had fun seeing Cones at The Monkey House and really liked that song and wanted to play it again this week. Cool song from Rosedale. OK, last week I finished playing Loose Tooth so it’s time to start a new album to play song after song week after week. This is a side project from The High Breaks called Surf Sabbath.

5.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath.
6.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
8.) Imaginary – Envy

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s and still a great song. That’s a new classic from Rabbit. Great rocker from David and the band. Recently, The High Breaks took a few Black Sabbath songs and rearranged them into a surf style then put them out on Bandcamp. I hope you enjoy hearing the album over the next few weeks. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live music from Cave Bees.

9.) Sister Blue – Cave Bees
10.) Queen City – Cave Bees
11.) I Don’t Need This Anymore – Cave Bees

13.) Vestibule – Blue Button
14.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
15.) Robots Improving Robots – The Tsunamibots
16.) Lift A Finger – Bag Of Panties

Panties featured Steve Tremblay before his Cave Bees days. I want to thank Tsunamibots for making me Director of Robot Propaganda last week, and for rocking so hard. Great song from Particles who play all over the US. Great rocker from Button. This next band play at Metal Monday next week at Nectar’s.

17.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
18.) Probably Wrong – Phantom Suns
19.) Creature (Of The Night) – Hellascope
20.) Purple Sorceress – KiefCatcher

I want to thank Chris Farnsworth for turning me on to Kief and Hella and lots of other bands. I’ll have to watch and see if I can catch them live sometime. There is so much music about that it always helps when people in the know clue each other in. Cool song from Ryan Cohen and company. Great rocker from Savage. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Tenderness – The New Siberians
22.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
23.) Bulletproof Vest – Zola Turn
24.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC

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?

Dino Bravo, The Ramparts, and Black Rabbit at the South End Art Hop and The High Breaks at ArtsRiot September 8, 2017   Leave a comment

Dino Bravo pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Art Hop though it could have been a lot better if Mother Nature had cooperated a bit more, or if an indoor backup had been set up. I took the long lovely walk downtown but the weather looked iffy so I brought the umbrella along. I made it through the growing crowd, past all of the food trucks and packed galleries, and found the alley way out back where the Green Door stage was set. The rain had passed and the sky was blue when Dino Bravo VT took the stage. They played heavy loud rock music and opened with Sugar Coated Candy Stix. They brought out the harmony guitars for Strawberry Blonde and rocked Pop Music hard. A cover of 20th Century Boy got the crowd engaged and they closed with Past The Mark.

During the set break I got a chance to see Dino’s rehearsal space and was amazed at how small it was. I guess it does not take much room to launch a great band.

IMG_5798

The Rampats pic by Tim Lewis

I heard music and headed back out as The Ramparts began their set. They had a mellower sound with an almost jam feel but the songs were more tightly constructed. They opened with a song with a bluesy rock feel about a drop in the bucket. They followed with a bouncy song called Spaceship that was stuck in my head for weeks after seeing them play it last year. I can still hear it now. They played a song with a nice groove that was cool, mellow and slow and was about one more night. They played a new song that was strong and rocking maybe called Night Light. They kept the trajectory heading harder and had a Sabbath vibe while taking the long way home. I was happily impressed by the music and unhappily impressed by the light raindrops with a similar trajectory. They began another new one that was really good but the light rain became a bit more steady and the show was stopped. All the equipment was quickly moved into the nearest gallery.

I wandered through the gallery and let my eyes feast on the brilliant art. I thought I could get a chance to see more galleries and make it back when the rain passed so I unfurled the umbrella and wandered in and out of galleries as I headed toward the back of ArtsRiot. I knew there was music at Speaking Volumes and Big Heavy World and cruised around but both were outside stages that were sadly quiet. The steady rain became a deluge and I found shelter at Green State Gardener and checked out a couple of plants and all the growing supplies. Once the rain eased to a reasonable level I wandered around several galleries and was happy to realize that there is as much art in our town as there is music.

IMG_5804

The rain had almost stopped so I headed back to the Green Door. I chatted with many cool people and it began to look like Black Rabbit were going to play. They quickly got all the equipment set up with only occasional raindrops. They began playing The Original Original and the rain began again. They rocked their way through the song then said thank you goodnight. Everyone rushed to the stage and tore it down again as the rain became steady again. I was bummed that I would not get to see a full Rabbit set or Zeus Springsteen, Eastern Mountain Time, or The Parts.

 

IMG_5816

Black Rabbit pic by Tim Lewis

I headed over to ArtsRiot and waited in the short and slow moving line. I got in and waited to get a drink but it went quickly when the bartender saw me and recognized me from the night before. The High Breaks had played Boardwalk Boogie, Surf Train, and The Big One as I waited then got settled. I moved to the front as they lit into a song dedicated to the downpour called Dark And Stormy Sea. They rocked out Surf Showdown and Sink Or Swim. They dedicated the next one to the 4th anniversary of ArtsRiot and the 25th edition of the South End Art Hop and played a killer surf rock version of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Up next was Hot Dog then they played a song about putting on your wet suit before going to bed so you are ready for anything when you wake up. It was called Wet Suit Dream. Matt said that whatever you do we care about you and don’t, then Todd said Wipe Out. They closed the show with that classic rocker that everyone knew.

At that point I headed out and walked around to more galleries and crammed my psyche with art. I did not stay too much later and was elated to experience a small slice of the wonder that is created in our town every day.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 7th. It can be streamed from the Facebook page link above or at WBKM.ORG and will go as follows,

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

The Blondes, and a couple of other bands, will be at the Dysfunkshun reunion show at Higher Ground on Saturday. Francis and Swale put on amazing shows at Nectar’s last Saturday. OK, here’s a classic Burlington rocker.

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?
