I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I highlighted a lot of what is happening in our town and some of the bands that come through. There was a bit of a story rainy theme.

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

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in Burlington but it has been a bit rainy and stormy in the past few days. This is the last show I’ll do this month so I have to start with this song. This is Last Day Of May by The Red Telephone on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Last Day Of May – The Red Telephone
2.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
3.) Miranda – Ninja Custodian
4.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids

Killer song from their new album. They are playing The Monkey House tomorrow. Killer classic Ninja song. Particles just released a new EP called This Town about life in Bangor Maine. It’s pretty cool. This next band are playing at the Monkey tomorrow too.

5.) Magenta Man – Rue Mevlana
6.) Exit Strategy – Rue Mevlana
7.) Futuis Eam – Vows
8.) Unveiled – Pours

I’ve caught Pours a couple of times and they are pretty cool. Vows are from NJ but have played town a couple of times and are coming back soon. That’s from their new album. I love the dramatic sweep to Rue’s songs. Let’s continue on through Swale’s album The Next Instead.

9.) Edible #2 – Swale
10.) The Same Stars – Zola Turn
11.) Oh My God – Sarah Blacker
12.) Beats Me – Satori Bob

Happy Birthday John Baumann! Great song from Sarah’s new album. Considering the imagery in the song, I had to pair it up with the Zola song. She played a killer show last Friday at The Skinny Pancake. I think I’m going to head there tomorrow to see this next artist, who has been playing there all month.

13.) Canadian Cowboy – Arc Iris
14.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
15.) Oh Freedom – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

Bernie had a killer kickoff rally for his Presidential run at the waterfront in Burlington Tuesday. I had to work but was inspired by watching the speech on C-Span. Run Bernie Run. Killer song from Rutland’s finest. I’m very excited to catch Iris. This next band are playing Saturday at the Monkey House.

16.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
17.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
18.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
19.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No

Killer song from Mountain’s coming soon album. Same for Rabbit. Great song from Phil. After seeing Sarah at the Pancake last Friday I ran over to Radio Bean and caught this band play a killer show.

20.) Not A Nice Guy – ROUGH FRANCIS
21.) Projector – Vetica
22.) Forbidden Love – Pinhead
23.) These Stories – When Particles Collide

Another great new song from Particles. That one had me dancing around the studio. Killer classic Pinhead song. I miss Vetica. I try to never miss Francis. It’s been raining on and off a bunch today. This seemed appropriate.

24.) Way Like Water – Sarah Blacker
25.) Nothing But The Water I & II – Grace Potter
26.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho

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

I just got back from my local music radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.

Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
2.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale
4.) Nothing But The Water II – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,

5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler
6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson
8.) Promises – Vedora

Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies
11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix
12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle

Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.

13.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!

17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
19.) Throw Me Away – Spill
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.

21.) Scream – Sistas in the Pit
22.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
23/) Freakin’ Out – Death World Wide

I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.

24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland

Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It was a little rough with the last song popping out of the player when I put a song into the queue, and having a couple of breaks blown away by the very busy Fire Department, but fortunately the songs were great, and held the day.

Songs before: 21st Century Schizoid Man (live) – April Wine
Move Through Time – Persian Claws

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. There is a lot of great music happening in town this week and there was a lot last week. The GPN festival with many great national bands, many great local bands and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals is Saturday and Sunday, but last Saturday was all about this guy. This is Shoreline In Jersey by Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Shoreline in Jersey – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
2.) Smile – Dwight & Nicole
3.) The Heart Is King – Pinhead
4.) Neighbors – And The Kids

And The Kids played a killer show opening for Joe last Saturday at Nectar’s. The crowd loved them and were completely on for the ride. Classic song from a great Burlington band. Have you seen the Dwight and Nicole video for smile? It will make you do so. Great song from Joe. So yea, tons of music at the waterfront in Burlington, lead by this band.

5.) Nothing But The Water (pt 1) – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
6.) Hometown – Gold Town
7.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
8.) Nothing But The Water (pt 2) – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

I remember seeing Grace at Nectar’s on a couple of cold February days a long time ago, and watching the audience grow week to week, despite the sub zero temperatures. I knew she was taking off. I’m glad to see how big of a band they have become. The Villanelles are fun live. Both they and Gold Town are playing GPN along with other great bands like Anders Parker Cloud Badge, The High Breaks, Caroline Rose and lots of others. It should be a great time. OK, let’s play the next song on Ninja Jane. This one always rocked live!

9.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
10.) Surface Tension – The Pants
11.) Never Satisfied – THE VACANT LOTS

Great song from their album Departure. They started in Burlington but now play all over the US and just started a tour of Europe. The Pants and Zola are great Burlington bands from the ’90’s. Last Saturday before the Rangers show, I went to the basement of one of the greatest music advocates in town, James Lockridge, and saw some heavy punk rock. I loved the twin guitars in this song.

12.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
13.) Impaled On A Cuddly Spike – Dog Hospice
14.) The Wrong Song – The Lentils
15.) Green Peaks \ Dark Valleys – Get A Grip

I missed Grip at the party but loved the pure fury of that 44 second song. The Lentils played acoustic punk at the party and were lots of fun. I need to get more of their music. Dog Hospice was one guy with guitars strapped to his drum kit and the mic taped to his mouth with duct tape. It was kind of a cool show. Up next is a band who played the show, but went on before I could get there. Fortunately they are playing tomorrow night at The Monkey House, and I will be there!

16.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
17.) Round Sum – Cave Bees
18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

That was a classic ’80’s punk band. Cave Bees and Shephard’s Pie are playing the Monkey House show, but I don’t have any of the latter to play, yet. Up next is a great new song from a new favorite band who have played around for a long time.

19.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
20.) B.A. Pariah – Endless Jags
21.) Everyone Likes To Fight – Swale

Swale’s new album should be out very soon on white vinyl with a bonus album full of remixes. They are playing Saturday at 4pm at GPN if you want to see them. Great song from Jags who come to town now and then. In the north end of town you can go down almost any street and see lots of sunflowers.

22.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
23.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
24.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
25.) The Love You Feel – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot

Lowell has played around forever and is playing at GPN. Got a sense of how good it’s going to be yet? Great song from Vetica. Dave and James are classic Burlington artists. Sunday, after GPN, there is a huge after party at Higher Ground featuring Marco Benevento. Here is a song with him and Kat Wright live at Radio Bean

26.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright
27.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger
28.) Say It – Anachronist
29.) Until The Day I Die – Slingshot Dakota

Sorry that song got cut and my outro started to play. Ah, the joys of live radio. Carly Comando and Tom Patterson got married this week and I wanted to play that song in honor of the occasion. The best of luck to you!!! Anahronist have an album coming out soon. Great song from their last EP. The Joe show at Nectar’s last Saturday was great. He played the full album including a wonderful version of Pun. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from local music internet radio show number 40 on WBKM.ORG.  It’s feeling like I’ve got the hang of this thing.

Song before: Hasn’t Hit Me Yet – Blue Rodeo

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  It’s a cold night in Burlington with an even colder wind.  It’s almost Christmas and here is a seasonally appropriate song from last year.

1.) Oh Holy Night – Electric Halo
2.) Beach Song – Ray Fork
3.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Emily Blacker

Sometimes when it’s cold out it’s fun to imagine joyous summer nights with great singer songwriters, and hanging out at the beach.  Electric Halo are cool and Johnnie Day Durand makes the saw sing, even if it is an instrumental.  Next up is the next song from Alice Austin’s To A Star In The Yard.  I’m taking the long way to show you how this album came about.

4.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
5.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
6.) Void – The Lavas
7.) Sharp Side Of The Knife – Alice Austin

Words can never truly describe music.  I though by playing a song from her previous four bands that it would let your ears hear her growth.  I’ve been slacking about going out to see music but did see Pink Floyd cover band Dark Side Of The Mountain for the last two Wednesdays.  This next set is some of the people who played last night.

8.) Mr Soul – Book ‘Em Blues Band
9.) Below The Beams – Grace Potter And The Nocturnals
10.) Gunslinger – Lendway
11.) All About You – Kat Wright And The Indomitable Soul Band

Dark Side of The Mountain are a local Pink Floyd cover band who have played the last two Wednesdays at Nectar’s.  They are guitarist Bob Wagner, bassist Josh Weinstein keyboardist Dan Munzing, and Matt Burr on drums.  Bob plays guitar and sings with Book ‘Em.  Matt plays drums with Grace, and that song sounds a bit Floydy.  Josh plays with the Indomitable Soul Band.  They were joined by Matthew Bryan Hagen from Lendway, and Kat Wright sang Money, Us And Them, Brain Damage, Eclipse and Have A Cigar.  It was a great night of music.  Burlington also has prog bands.

12.) Full Power – Elephants of Scotland
13.) Mary – Plan B

Plan B played it in the ’90’s and Elephants are doing it now, and are working on a new album.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Something misfired and the promo and outro were lost in a squeal for 30 seconds or so.

Sorry about that.  Tim still here to tell you about the next song.  It’s about looking at yourself from inside and objectively and noticing the other side of you.  This is a song by Fish, and even though he’s from Scotland, this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

Song after: The Other Side Of Me – Fish
