Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday July 26. You can stream it from the website or here WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Lying Eyes – The Eagles

intro

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. Adrienne rocked the electric banjo at the synagogue. More about the band that headlined the night soon. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live performance by Ivamae.

4.) Veil – Ivamae
5.) Changes – Ivamae
6.) Underheard – Ivamae
7.) Honey Bee – Ivamae

Wow, she is so amazing. Thanks to Ryan Cohen for making the sound so great and to Phoebe Zorn for the camera work. Check out the video for Underheard on YouTube. OK, so last Thursday the mighty Julia Caesar released their album Heavy Flow at the synagogue. Here is a song from it. There will be more later.

8.) Crimson – Julia Caesar
9.) Like Beads – Anachronist
10.) Pillar Of Truth – Lucy Dacus
11.) Dumb Smile – Clever Girls

Clever and Lucy played amazing shows at ArtsRiot a week ago Sunday. Anachronist played a great version of that one the Friday before at the Tarrant Gallery by The Flynn. Julia are just amazing. OK, this next artist visited town once and then morphed into a new band. I’m hoping for a return trip soon.

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
19.) Nothing Important – Doom Service

That’s the next song from the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. I love the cosmic nature of that one. Cool song from Miku that we recorded a few weeks back at Robot Dog Studio. Humble finally released that song that is so fun, so I had to get it on the air. Great song from David. 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
28.) Julius Caesar – The New Siberians

I just had to do the Julia Julius thing. I caught a couple of songs from Brayden Patrick Baird from the Torys last Friday. Binger are everywhere but will come back to us soon.

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

Tetsou, Grand, Green Chapel, and Aliendog at Nectar’s July 16, 2018   Leave a comment

Tetsou pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music last night at Nectar’s. There was another great show happening in Winooski, so I had to make a choice and ended up downtown.

The walk was quick and hot and I arrived at 8:30 for the 9pm show. I had a quick bite to eat and chatted with Aaron Carr and Zack for a bit, then it began to get loud.

Tetsuo hit the stage fast, heavy, and loud with a pounding metal sound. I think their thrashing songs were about hating fascism. Fuck The Alt-Right was played as fast as humanly possible and the super short song that followed was even faster. Casey Little recognized the next one and danced hard to it. They ended with a slower one that was nice and heavy. It felt like a reasonably long set but the clock said they wrapped up their 9 songs in about 15 minutes. Each one was glorious.

I had been ages since I’d seen Grand and was elated from their first note. They opened with Everybody Wants To Get You High and we were off and running. Their melodic punk was played with precision and power and left a smile on my face. They followed with one about hearing songs in a grocery store, then opined I’m over you in the song about the one that got away. They sang about not sleeping at night and then Aaron opened up about his feelings on I Just Couldn’t Say. Good Times was fun and brought us Another Day Closer To Nothing. They sang another song about feelings but in a deeper way. Aaron spoke about a friend who committed suicide and urged anyone feeling that way to talk to people and get help. The song was called I Can’t Feel Anything. They wrapped the brilliant show with a song about going out and called it a night. They were as spectacular as always.

Green Chapel opened with something about we’re not lying as they dropped their mid-paced heavy ferocious sound on us. I was instantly hooked by their stoner doom metal. They sang about getting Down and cleaning the blood. They had one with a slow opening section that settled into an epic ending. They sang about a Brave Coward and closed with a song about feelings called Home Again. Their set was so fun.

IMG_9632

Green Chapel pic by Tim Lewis

At that point I was pretty wiped out. I hit the wall in the middle of Chapel’s set and wanted to head home, but wanted to stay too. I got another drink and closed my tab and hung out as Aliendog began to play. Their sound was somewhere between heavy rock and metal and was fantastic. The first song was fun and the second was called Pretend and had a bit of an E5150 feel to the intro. The Red Sun had a slow intro with nice cymbal work before it crashed into a Sabbath sound. Hell Hound had very expressive vocals then they gave us a history lesson with Jonestown 1978. At that point I was using a table to prop up my mortal remains, but I just had to stay as they sang about how it’s hard to say goodbye. We rose on the next one, then they played one more wonderful song and called it a night.

I quickly ducked out the door and took the warm walk home. I’m so lucky to be able to see such great music all the time.

I love the way that song rocks. That’s another great new song from the upcoming Zeus album. Beautiful song by The Cush.

Earlier today, my brother and I accompanied my mom up to the hospital for her last radiation treatment. It’s been a long six weeks. She’s got another tough week coming up but after that the healing process should kick in. I know she is not the only one going through that so let’s all do whatever we can do to support our mothers as long as we can.

Rosedale, Mr Doubtfire, and Grand at Radio Bean September 10, 2017   Leave a comment

Rosedale pic by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music last Sunday. I had seen a ton of music for the previous three nights and had a trip to Canada planned for Monday early morning so going out to see a show on Sunday night at 10 seemed a very silly thing to do.

I gout out of work at 2 and had the day to hang out. Around 9:30 I got myself moving and walked into Radio Bean around 10. I knew two of the bands and knew nothing about the third but assumed they would sound similar. I was a bit surprised to just see a keyboard and an acoustic guitar on the stage. After a few moments ROSEDALE sat at the keys and began to sing and play. He usually has a bit more of a monster sound system but that night he played it casual and let his voice and songs shine. His music had a nice structure and created a lovely space as he alternated between the keys and guitar. He began with a song about feeling unpersuasive then told us how he missed MySpace and CD’s and played a song called Written By The Artist. He played a song about loving music called My First Show that featured lyrics that painted portraits of a young band getting out and playing. He played a song about Branson Ontario called El Dorado Park. He tuned down one string to play a song to his father and made a dropping the D reference, you know the dad word. He played a nice cover that I did not know that went I’ll follow you into the dark. He enchanted us with a nostalgic song with bright imagery about being A Kid Again. He closed the set with a song about never giving up called What We Started. The show was nothing like I expected it would be and was just wonderful.

Up next the two singer/electric guitars, bass, drums attack of Mr. Doubtfire met my expectations for how the night would sound with their indie/punk rock. They began with a song about running away and then Cho-Cho-Chose us. The music was loud and the energy was high and I was blissfully happy. They rocked out Blank Daze with is essentially the title song from the Marionette EP. They played a cool new song. They played There’s A Problem. They closed the set with something about Virginia and left me delighted.

 

IMG_5897

Mr Doubtfire pic by Tim Lewis

The set break was pretty reasonable then Grand kept the rock fury going. The singer/electric guitar, bass, drums trio play super catchy indie punk and rock hard. They said that Radio Bean was their arena tonight. The first song was a gift to us with a Queen vibe and went something like we’re that band, we are grand. They asked us if we wanted Good Times then rocked us Another Day Closer To Nothing. They sang about putting you down and coming around then played a song about how in Vermont Everybody Wants To Get You High. They played a song about the road and one about keeping me in line. They slowly began a song about his feelings that built into a huge rock song that was so good that I Just Couldn’t Say. Aaron Carr was a bit stressed as he had relatives in Florida in the path of the hurricane as the show was going on which added an edge to the song about God help you now get out of the way. They played a song about not feeling anything and closed the night with a song about going down.

It was about 1 when they wrapped up so I said a quick goodbye then took the short walk home. There was not a lot of sleep before the 6am alarm but it was still so worth it.

http://wbkm.org/

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?

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Last week was a bit crazy in the political world but this week has seem a bit more calmness.

1.) Seed Of Healing – That Virginia

Great song from Maryse who used to play in town all the time but still stops by to enchant us. Ivamae’s songs are so beautiful. I have to go see her again soon.

11.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker

13.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
14.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
15.) Here We Go – Dysfunkshun

17.) Good Times – Grand
18.) We Govern The Breeze – Humble Hero
19.) I Choo-Choo-Choose You – Mr. Doubtfire
20.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand

21.) Commune – Greaseface
22.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
23.) One Thousand Lies – Comrade Nixon
24.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Doom always put on great rocking shows. They will be at Finnegan’s on Saturday. Comrade are from NY and just put out a really intense album.

25.) Drug Laws – SWALE

27.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
28.) Sober – Vedora

I miss Vedora but they put on some rocking shows and left us with some great music. Sunday is the last episode of this season’s Game Of Thrones so I thought I should get the Mountain song on now.
