Tonight’s local music radio show will stream at WBKM and can be heard over the air at 107.1FM. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

Song before (Then Came The) Last Of May – Blue Oyster Cult

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a woman who has come to town for years to share her music with us. Here is the brand new song she just released.

1.) Walkabout – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
2.) Mama – Ivamae
3.) Powder – The New Siberians
4.) Lovely Day – gneiss

That song makes me so happy. I hope it does the same for you. Great song from the Siberians debut album from a few years ago. Ivamae are so wonderfully talented. Great new song from Sarah. OK, here is the next song from Lights Camera Action and is the last song on the Lights EP.

5.) Sleepwalker – 1881
6.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
7.) Alan’s Garden – Ruckzuck
8.) Last Day Of May – The Red Telephone

Today is the first of June so I thought that would be appropriate to play. After seeing Ruckzuck so much last week, I’m still pretty enthralled with them and wanted to play Garden again. Great rocker from Nancy and wonderful song about insomnia from 1881. That’s a lot of sheep to count. OK, I almost saw this band last Tuesday at Light Club Lamp Shop but I worked just late enough to miss them

9.) Sri Lanka – Ellen Degenerates
10.) I Will – Camp Howard
11.) The Field – The Dead Shakers
12.) Look At The Lilacs – Binger

The lilacs around town have begun to fade but what a show they have put on for the last couple of weeks. I missed Ellen at the show last week, but did catch Howard and Shakers and really enjoyed both. OK, here is a song that really speaks about Burlington Vermont.

13.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
14.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
15.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes
16.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I heard that John M Whyte has joined Ornan McLean in the Blondes and both play in Elephants so i had to play those two. Can’t wait to see him play a show with them. Great songs from Doubtfire and Violint. There’s a guy around town named Joe who makes and brings us lots of music. Here is one of his songs.

17.) Stratosphere – Joe Adler
18.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
19.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
20.) 45 (live) – Clever Girls

Such a complex and beautiful song from the Girls. Great song from the enchanting Hana Zara. Cricket are so wonderful and so is Joe. OK, here is a Burlington classic.

21.) My Old Boyfriend – Wide Wail
22.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
23.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
24.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker

Great newish song from Milton. Classics from Chin, Ninja, and Wail. OK, here’s a brand new song from Swale. They are just about to drop the new album There’s No One Here and this is a breezy instrumental.

25.) Here’s Where You Are – SWALE
26.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale
27.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
28.) Once Upon – Vedora

Classic song from Caroline Marie. Her band Steady Betty is playing around town for Jazzfest. Myra is playing at least one show and doing a songwriting workshop, which sounds cool, as part of the huge festival. Hmmm, Swale. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm Thursday May 11, and will go as follows:

Song before: Bel-Air – The Church Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Spring is in full bloom and the leaves are coming out and it’s almost time for the lilacs. Tomorrow is my birthday so tonight I will just play a bunch of my favorite songs. If your band is not in the list I still love your songs but I just grabbed two hours of songs that fill my heart. I’m sure I could have done a twelve hour show and still missed a lot of greatness. Let’s begin with a woman with a huge heart and powerful voice.

1.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Liar – Maryse Smith
3.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara
4.) Presence – Satori Bob

Satori have a new album that I will dig into next week, but Presence has spoken to me continuously since the first time I heard it 25 or so years ago. Hana’s songs are entrancing and each one is a ride to go on. She is so great. It was nice to see Maryse briefly at Waking Windows last weekend. Peg is so fantastic. OK, last week I played the last song on Kat Wright’s By My Side album, so it’s time to start a new one. Last year this next band put out three EP’s that really feel like one album. Here is the first song from Light’s, Camera, and Acton.

5.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
6.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
7.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
8.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

I’ve been captivated by Andriana’s music since I first heard it last year. I love everything about that Carraway song. It’ll Be OK has been stuck in my head for the past few weeks. Great song from 1881. Here is another great song.

9.) Piano In Every Room – gneiss
10.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
11.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
12.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

I just love everything about that song. Loose was recorded live at Robot Dog Studio by Ryan Cohen. I love how it rocks so hard. Aaron has a ton of great songs and that one just had to find it’s way into this mix. I love it when there is music everywhere and a piano in every room. This next song has been stuck in my head lately too.

13.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
14.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
16.) I-90 East – ROUGH FRANCIS

I love all of Francis’ songs but there is something about that one that made it jump out at me. So, last Friday I was quickly walking down Riverside ave when a car pulled over and said Tim, get in. Thanks for the ride to Waking Windows Urian Hackney and Julian Hackney!! Politicians is a great song and I loved seeing them at the Flynn not so long ago. Earthquakes is one of my many absolute favorites. Monica, always! Every time I catch this next band I just love them.

17.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
18.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
19.) Every Last One Of Us – SWALE
20.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian

That version of the Blue Oyster Cult song is so fantastic. Swale were great at Waking Windows and played a stunning version of that song. It was so wonderful to finally see the Cush again at Waking Windows. They played a stunning version of that song. Hmmm, Windigo. The first time I heard this next song it sent shivers down my spine. It still does.

21.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
22.) Black, Blue, and White – The New Siberians
23.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
24.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I love a lot of Elephant’s music but that one always stands out. I love the Druids so much! There are many great songs from the Siberians but that one just seemed to fit the set. Hmmm, mountain. OK, this next band always rock.

25.) Burning Bridges – Blue Button
26.) Papertrain – Dave Jarvis (Daffy Mal Yinkleyank)
27.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker

That is such a great song from Anders. I love a lot of Binger songs but always keep coming back to that one. Great song from Dave. His band Agent 802 are starting to play shows. Button always rock hard. I hope you were OK with indulging me on the day before my birthday. Next week I will play lots of new music and take some chances but tonight I just wanted to hear some favorites. See you next week.

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
Crucifix Corner (live) – Fish
Fractured Mirror – Ace Frehley

Song before: Mirror Mirror (Look Into My Eyes) – Def Leppard

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. As a music fan I’m happy to leave myself in the capable hands of the many great musicians out there. I almost never want to offer advice, except for this. Please, record your music and release your records.

1.) Release Your Records – SWALE
2.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
3.) Souvenir – The Depth and the Whisper
4.) The River – Kat Wright

That’s the next wonderful song on By My Side, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song.. Whisper played a lovely show at Radio Bean last Sunday. Classic from Chin and great brand new song from Swale! OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and music by Clever Girls.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
7.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls
8.) 45 – Clever Girls

Thanks to Ryan Cohen for recording us and to the band for playing such great versions of those songs and for hanging out and chatting with me. OK, these next two bands will be at The Monkey House on Saturday and I will be out of town on a trip with my mother and brother. Can everyone go in my place?

9.) Time To Save The World – Carraway
10.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
11.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
12.) The Bad Year – Carraway

That’s going to be a great show with those too bands. OK, last Sunday before The Depth And The Whisper I caught one song from the opening band. The bass player for the band performed earlier as a solo act and gave me a CD to check out. It’s pretty cool. Here’s a song.

13.) Clarity – Hello Tortoise
14.) Totally Submerged – Totally Submerged
15.) Hole In The Sky – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
16.) Laughing Jim – The Edd

The Edd have a new album that was released at 4:20 today. Surf played a great version of that last Friday at Foam Brewers. I finally caught up with Submerged at Radio Bean on Monday and they rocked. Cool song from Tortoise. So hey, is it a holiday today?

17.) Grandma Betty’s Goodtime Smokin’ Weed – Brother Zag
18.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
19.) Sun-Dripped Orphan And The Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland
20.) Strings – Binger

I love the insight of Binger’s lyrics and their music is pretty cool too. Great songs from Elephant, Siberians and the elusive Brother Zag. Here’s a cool brand new song that just came my way.

21.) Break A Leg – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
22.) Poem for Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC
23.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray
24.) I Love The Night – The Contrarian

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: Winter – Tori Amos

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was in the 70’s over the weekend and today it’s cold and snowy. Welcome to Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a lovely singer songwriter who graces our state.

1.) Can You Love Me Too? – Bethany Conner Music
2.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
3.) When The Night’s Get Long – Carraway
4.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

I just love that Siberians song. As February ends the nights just seem to stay long so I thought those songs would sound like Burlington. Andriana is playing at Red Square on Saturday at 5pm if you are looking for cool music. Great song from Bethany. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

5.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright
6.) What If? – Madaila
7.) Magenta Man – Rue M.
8.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

What a lovely piece of rocking dramatic music from Cricket. I just love the drama that Rue add to the music. If you like Madaila, you may want to head to Club Metronome tomorrow night. I think you will like the band they have playing. Great song from Kat and the band. OK, on Saturday this next artist is finally coming back to town. I’ve seen him a dozen times (or so) at Metronome over the years, though not for a long time. The first time I saw him play was back at Hunts with his band The Bears. I’m very excited for his show Saturday night at ArtsRiot. It’s sold out, so I hope you have a ticket.

9.) Young Lions – Adrian Belew
10.) Ampersand – Adrian Belew
11.) Newrotica – Adrian Belew
12.) E – Adrian Belew

I’m so psyched for Saturday! OK, I saw this band last week and this song has been stuck in my head ever since. I hope it gets stuck in yours too.

13.) Eggshell – The Mountain Says No
14.) Winter – Dave Jarvis
15.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho

Happy Birthday Andrew X Smith and thanks for all the great music over the years. It’s finally cold enough to play the Dave song. Hmmm, Mountain, hmmmm. So, I just got a couple of new songs from a great band who play Burlington once or twice a year. Here’s one of them.

16.) Dying Stars – Slingshot Dakota
17.) I Didn’t Know I Was A Wizard – Colin Nicholas Clary
18.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
19.) The Whiskey Always Wins – When Particles Collide

Particles played a great show at Manhattan Pizza a few weeks ago. Hopefully they will be back soon. Hearse are just a great band. Cool song from Colin. Great new song from Slingshot! OK, this next band features a local guitar player who has been in a couple of bands and takes lots of great concert photos. Some of them are hanging in The Mule Bar in Winooski and they are doing a show opening tonight. Luke Awtry Photography has been done a great job documenting the local scene in pictures. Let’s play one of Luke Adam‘s songs from one of my favorite bands.

20.) Linea – Vetica
21.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
22.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
23.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes

24.) Good Times – Grand
25.) Your Song – Mr. Doubtfire
26.) Finder – Madelines
27.) It’s Cold – Black Rabbit
28.) Dominance And Submission – The Contrarian

Great rocker from Casey Merlin Rae. It’s finally cold enough to play the Rabbit song. Madelines rocked us in the ’90’s. Doubtfire and Grand are rocking us today. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music Halloween show on 107.1FM WBKM runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

Song before: Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat

intro

From our small mortuary to the great big graveyard, these are the skulls of Burlington. It’s been a terrifying few days in Burlington with cold wind and snow blanketing the beautiful red orange and gold leaves. The forecast is for it to get darker and darker until All Hallows Eve on Monday, then it will return to it’s usual lovely state. Our sponsor, Higher Ground, is likely going to send me to the gallows for not mentioning how great of a rock club they are but tonight I want to focus on the fusion of the physical world and the spirits that inhabit it. Our perception of life is merely the light dancing across shifting solid objects. Let’s explore this subject matter with a song called Shadow and Act by Invisible Homes on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

1.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes
2.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker
3.) Release The Dead – Chin Ho
4.) Angels And Devils – Invisible Homes

That was a song called Angels and Devils by Invisible Homes on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Can you think of anything more terrifying than going back to your home after a long night at the clubs and finding it invisible? Once you find your way inside it must be hard to balance the angels and devils. For the tale before that I had to dig deep into one of our oldest graveyards to find the song Release the dead by Chin Ho. Did you enjoy Sarah Blacker’s tale of darkness and light in Oh My God? I hope Invisible Homes twin tales of Shadow and Act and Angels and Devils help you enjoy the thin thread between the worlds. Speaking of the devil. let’s take a journey to an ancient Vermont Farm for a song called Devil on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemor’s kind of music too.

5.) Devil – farm
6.) Devil’s Work – Thompson Gunner
7.) Devil’s Right Hand – Swillbillie
8.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Great Western must be terrified that the Devil Knows Their Name on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Swillbillie told us a gruesome tale of a gun being used as The Devil’s Right Hand. Thompson Gunner told us a tale of he Devil’s Work, and Farm told us a story about freeing themselves from the hold of the Devil. Now, we shall let Hana Zara tell us about one of our most famous holiday’s. It’s called Day Of The Dead on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

9.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
10.) Raising The Dead – Carraway
11.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
12.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand

Considering America’s imminent grand decision, perhaps it is just Two Weeks (’til the end of the world) as the band Grand so nicely stated on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. I hope you enjoyed Phil Yates’ tale of Ninjas Vs Zombies and the epic battle for life. If the zombies should win, at least they dance well, as Carraway explained in Raising The Dead. Hana Zara’s cheery tale of the Day Of The Dead should give you hope too, in the darkest of evenings. Are you afraid yet? I hope so because it’s time to be terrified. It’s time for Doom Service and a Welcome To The Hellmouth on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

13.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service
14.) Demon Eyes – Lake Superior
15.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
16.) Vampyre – David Jarvis

That was a tale of the Vampyre by Dave Jarvis on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Dave will resurrect his old body and band for a show tomorrow and I hear word that the Vampyre will appear. Were you more afraid of Crazyhearse’s story of the Demon Moon or Lake Superior’s Demon eyes? Both were pretty frightening. I hope you enjoyed your Welcome To The Hellmouth with Doom Service. They put on the darkest of shows last Tuesday at Nectar’s. This next singer plays all the time, but to find Alice Austin, you must go to a Graveyard Before Dark on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora.

17.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
18.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
19.) Children Of The Grave – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
20.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

Even ghouls like to surf so I hope you enjoyed the cover of Paranoid by Surf Sabbath on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. Since Vultures of Cult and SWALE are playing Black Sabbath cover shows on Saturday I had to subject us to Children Of The Grave by Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic All Stars. The Contrarian took us on a trip through One More Grave and we started in The Graveyard Before Dark with newly married Alice Austin. As all of the undead know, once you are in the grave, there is only one way to go, down. Fortunately, you will be guided by Our Lady Of The Underground as told by Anais Mitchell on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora’s kind of music too.

21.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
22.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
23.) You’ll Make A Great Ghost – the grift
24.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox

Did you enjoy your journey on the Ghost Train with Jerichovox on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora? I hope so, there will be more ghostly songs soon. The Grift thought You Will Make A Great Ghost and I agree. That was Marco Benevento and Kat Wright who admitted that I Put A Spell On You and Anais Mitchell was Our Lady Of The Underground. Some people are addicted to the supernatural but Aaron Flinn is forever Giving Up The Ghost on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemors kind of music too.

25.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
26.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
27.) Ghostified – Persian Claws
28.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things

Better things are lovely kids to think that they can go around Killing Ghosts on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh’, Danemora. The Persian Claws left us Ghostified and Elephants of Scotland regaled us with a tale of Counting On A Ghost. Aaron Flinn is still Giving Up The Ghost and may do so for all eternity. This next group of individuals has demised as a band, but spend some time before they left Planning My Funeral. They were briefly known as Poxy on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington’s Kind Of Music, Plattsburgh’s kind of music and Danemora kind of music too.

29.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
30.) With The Dead – Vultures of Cult

As we approach Halloween, we are all With The Dead as foretold by Vultures of Cult on WBKM.ORG 107.1FM Burlington, Plattsburgh, Danemora. I hope you were terrified to check out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? Goodbye. Farewell, See Ya, Sayonara.

31.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
outro

Songs after:
Plague Of Ghosts (live USA 2000) – Fish
Phantom Girl – The Cush
Black 17 – The New Siberians
Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot

I got a little extra organized and have tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM all lined up. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and will go as follows:

Song before: Alone – Children in Paradise

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have lots of shows happening this week and have Built to Spill playing tonight. Let’s begin tonight with some huge sweeping songs in honor of all of those people in our community who have huge sweeping hearts.

1.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
2.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
3.) If You Get Lost – SWALE
4.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

Cascade has such a huge luscious sound. Same for Lost. Swale will be playing Saturday at The Monkey House with The Nancy Druids. Sean from the Druids also plays in Telephone so it’s going to be a great night of music. I will be out of town, but more on that later. Great song from Hero. On a more somber note, this week the Burlington community lost one of it’s funniest and most treasured people. I loved all the wry posts that Mike McGonegal shared with us and I got to meet and hang out with him a few weeks back at a Silver Bridget show. I’m going to play three of their instrumental songs to pay a quiet tribute to Mike, and to all of the people who have left this life. I invite you to join me.

5.) Old Man – Silver Bridget
6.) She’s Leaving Home – Silver Bridget
7.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget

It was fun seeing them that night and having Mike help me identify which song they were playing. He will be greatly missed by our community. Since we are in a contemplative mood, let’s play the next song from the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. Here is the next one from Song For My Double.

8.) Contemplating The Ivory – Invisible Homes
9.) Little Monster – Strange Machines
10.) What If – Madaila
11.) What If – REDadmiral

I had to play those two back to back. They are obviously quite different songs. Machines will be at Nectar’s tomorrow. Homes play so many great styles of music. That’s a song from Madaila’s new album Traces. Admiral are at The Monkey House Tonight. So is this next band.

12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies – Phil Yates
13.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
14.) Emerald – Ace Frehley
15.) Hey Ernie – Cold Sweat

When I was younger some friends and I would drive all over Vermont and New York to go see Sweat. We’d see them in Glens Falls and Clifton Park and places like that. I have tickets with my brother Ken to see Ace on Saturday in Clifton Park, NY so that should be fun. I believe that Lizzy cover is in the setlist. Great rocker from Mountain and fun song from Phil. I saw this next band last week at Foam Brewers

16.) Medieval Knieval – Barbacoa
17.) Say It – Anachronist
18.) Falter – Chin Ho
19.) Green Apple Girl – David Jarvis

It sounds like Dave is getting the band back together soon. Great classic from Chin. Great song from Anachronist. Barbacoa always rock. OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Sally – Daniel Waterhouse (Dan Murphy)
21.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
22.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
23.) A Different Machine – Elephants of Scotland

Great rocker from Elephants, who are really from VT. Great rockers from Dirt and Crazy and cool song from Dan. OK, there’s just a little bit of time left. Let’s keep rocking.

24.) 88 – Wave of the Future
25.) 22R – Cave Bees
26.) Black, Blue and White – The New Siberians
27.) I Am Sunday – The Red Telephone

I thought I’d end where I began. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Outro

Songs after: Internal Exile Medley (Big Bus) – Fish
Against The Rain – TILT
Butts Wigglin’ – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. It’s a bit of a slow week but tomorrow at noon tickets go on sale for The English Beat, if that is of interest. That show is coming up in September. It was so great to hear and see the dynamic songwriting duo of Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton last week at The Monkey House when they were joined by Julia Austin and Ann Mindell when they played as Envy. Let’s begin tonight with a song from Sean and Matt’s last album.

1.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
2.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
3.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I love the line about what you throw away, to me, is solid gold. That sums up many of the similarities and differences between us all. Nice London Calling reference too. Great couple of songs from Chin. I love that Telephone song. OK, let’s play the next song on the Giant Places album.

4.) The Words Will Show – Lendway
5.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa
6.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

The Breaks played as Sabbath last night at Nectar’s. Barbacoa opened for Envy last week and played the instrumental surf version of Bloodboy. Envy played it properly when they opened their set. Nice instrumental from Lendway. OK, let’s play some rock and roll with some words.

7.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
8.) The Blackout – The Static Age
9.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
10.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers

I’ve always thought that was one of the great songs played in Burlington. The Snaz are coming to town for a show at Radio Bean tomorrow and one at The Monkey House on Saturday. I love that song by Static. When I saw them so many years ago it was the first time I saw Bobby Hackney Jr. play drums. He just played with Barbacoa last week at the Envy show and was totally amazing. Great song by Zola. Many years ago The Cush came to Burlington and enchanted us for a few years. They are just about to begin a European tour so let’s celebrate with some of their wonderful music.

11.) Hollow – The Cush
12.) Roll Me – The Cush
13.) Telepathic Headdress – The Cush
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush

I hope they have a great tour!! One of the cool things about the Envy show last week was catching up with old friends like this guy.

15.) Decide – David Jarvis
16.) Comin’ Home – The Hippnotix
17.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
18.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Villanelles were just as great a week ago Wednesday as they were the previous three. That night Grand opened for them and were pretty amazing too. Hipp Notix are from New York and, if I’m not mistaken, are from Dave’s neck of the woods. So, this is the week that the Seven Days Daisy awards came out. Daniel Bolles also awarded some special not quite awards called Dandelions. He rightly awarded Villanelles for best rock band and somehow me for local music champion, though fellow nominees such as Luke Awtry, James Lockridge, and Girls Rock Vermont deserved it as much or more. Thanks Dan and 7 Days. Oh, and this next singer and band rightly swept the local popular Daisy votes in a few categories.

19.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
20.) Bad Oasis – farm
21.) Star – The New Siberians

That is such a great song. I love that Farm song. OK, this next singer is 17 years old but is on her way to become a star.

22.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music
23.) Bury Me – Forest Gray
24.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
25.) Time to Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

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