Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG can be streamed from our website or this Facebook page WBKM It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday November 30 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. 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?

6.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
7.) Immigrant Trio – Soule Monde (Ray Paczkowski & Russ Lawton)

Great song by a band who specialize in speaking about hard feelings and who wrap their words in beautiful melodies. We all feel like losers now and then so make sure you have a few good friends to help you out of that feeling when you get there. Great music from Ray and Russ. Andy is a classic from the ’90’s.

18.) I’ll Get Wise – Anachronist
19.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin
20.) The Night Syd Barrett Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
21.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No

You should be yourself but if you ever want to be like someone else, being like Ryan is cool. Great song that name checks many local venues by Colin.

22.) Skybot – Blowtorch

Song before: Train In Vain – The Clash

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. What a crazy week, it’s been like summer and in the ’90’s and suddenly today it’s a chilly fall day.

1.) Get Loud – Near North
2.) Jesse – The Parts
3.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

13.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
14.) Cheese Whiz Salad – Wren Kitz

Great song from David about the Paris attacks and how we can change from being alive to stardust in an instant. Clever are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and always put on a great show, though there’s so many other shows happening that night too. OK, there is a cool after Madaila party at Nectar’s and this band will be there.

David Rosane & The Zookeepers pic by Tim Lewis

 

I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday. I woke up and wrote up three shows that I hand seen in the last week then took a short nap. I met up with Mary Wolcott around 6:30 and we headed over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen spent some time getting the sound right then I began my interview with David Rosane & The Zookeepers that I played the next day on my local music radio show on WBKM. They played four lovely songs. Grandma, Sugar And Cream, Hope In The Dark, and What The Fuck Went Wrong are all powerful and gorgeous songs and we chatted about life in between. After we wrapped up the interview They played one more song that I will use for my annual Halloween show. Stardust For Dessert is about the Paris bombing attack and about how life can be transferred into stardust in an instant. After that was wrapped up the band headed out and Mary, Ryan and I chatted for a bit. Mary and I then headed out and went downtown.

We arrived at Red Square just as gneiss ended a set so we got drinks then chatted with the band. It was s short break then they got up to play. Naomi Galimidi and Johnny Meli alternated singing the songs as Jesse Cowan and Jacob Blodgett locked in the rhythm. They began with a song with a jazzy jam feel then played a song about seeing the light in your soul. They played a great version of Haze then played a funky song about moving on to the next scene. They played a song about walking in light that had a bit of a Bowie vibe. Piano In Every Room filled my heart and Lovely Day kept me smiling. A song about it being too much and never enough had a nice feel to it and they closed with an appropriate song called Comfort Me. Per the band it went Rumor (Debut) → Wish I Knew You, Daughters Eyes, Sophia Walks → Haze → Backdrop, Lovely Day, Too Much, Comfort Me.

After that we headed out and Mary dropped me off then headed home. It was indeed a lovely day.
