Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Eastern time Thursday May 23. You can stream it from the website or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Lined up before
Today Your Love, Tomorrow The World – The Ramones
High On Emotion – Chris DeBurgh
Parisienne Walkways – Greg Lake and Gary Moore
Cellars – decker.

Song before: To The Men – Tim Heidecker

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. At work, we have a pond, and this week was the first time this year I’ve seen a dragonfly.

1.) Dragonfly – Barbacoa
2.) Lifetime – Radio Underground
3.) Humble Pie – Smokestack Lightning
4.) Defensive Roofie – Jessica Rabbit Syndrome

That’s a cool song about a horrible subject. Women have to be very careful they don’t get drugged and abused, and the idea of knocking out the guy before he can hurt anyone is intriguing. That’s a cool rock song from Smokestack. Lifetime has been stuck in my head lately, so I thought I’d try and get it stuck in yours. Great song from Barbacoa, and summer is nearly here. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for a powerful music performance and a fun interview.

5.) Drown – Green Chapel
6.) Thea – Green Chapel
7.) Hate Again – Green Chapel
9.) War Maker – Green Chapel

Thanks Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great and thanks for the film work Phoebe Eliza and Christian James. Special Thanks to Green Chapel for that amazing performance. OK, here’s a song about a boating disaster.

10.) Empress Of Ireland – Thompson Gunner
11.) New Orleans Is Sinking – The Tragically Hip
12.) Sink Of Swim – The High Breaks
13.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

That’s a great song from an amazing performer. The Breaks are pretty great too. The Hip song was recorded on Lake Champlain many years ago and the Gunner song was recorded at Nectar’s. OK, last week I played the last song on the New Siberians album so I have to start a new one, though I think it’s already started. Lest week I played the first two songs on Serotinalia, so let’s dive into number three then play the rest of the album over the next few weeks.

14.) June – Cricket Blue
15.) You’re Not Listening – Forest Grey
16.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
17.) Bad Oasis – farm

That’s such a great song. I love the Crow song and hope they are working on new material. That’s a cool song about wondering about God from Forest and a lovely song from Cricket. Their new album is getting great reviews. Ben Maddox from Farm and The Mountain Says No just put out an album of mellow music. Let’s take a listen.

18.) Invocation – Hill Wizard
19.) Empty Frequency – Rue M.
20.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
21.) You – Slingshot Dakota
22.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
23.) Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell

That’s such a fun song from Smell. I miss how the Affiliates used to rock us all the time. I wanted to go back to the brilliant Break album from Slingshot. Myra has a show coming up at the Shelburne Vineyard soon. Rue M are always amazing, though if you need a spectacle of a show this weekend, check out Spielpalast Cabaret. Cool flowing music from the Wizard. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

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.

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.

Song before: Beautiful Day – U2

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a heck of a day.

1.) Judgement Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
2.) Stormy Day – Robin Gottfried Band
3.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
4.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids

Any day in a well lived life can be any of the above. OK, let’s move on to the last song on the Surf Sabbath album. This is a surf rock mashup between Penetration by The Pyramids and Sweet Leaf by Black Sabbath

5.) Sweet Penetration – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
6.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
7.) Immigrant Trio – Soule Monde (Ray Paczkowski & Russ Lawton)
8.) Loser – SWALE

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. Cool surf mashup from the Breaks. I’ll start a new album to play all the way through in a couple of weeks. This next band just released a great new album. Here are a few songs.

9.) I Guess I’ve Had Enough Too – Eastern Mountain Time
10.) Since I Quit Drinking – Eastern Mountain Time
11.) There’s A Gary Stewart Song About This – Eastern Mountain Time
12.) Done My Time – Eastern Mountain Time

Great songs from their new album Mountain Country. This next artist just put out a great new album too. It’s called Caveman Blues.

13.) Sit Right Down – Ryan Ober and the Romans
14.) Caveman Blues – Ryan Ober and the Romans
15.) Supernatural – Ryan Ober and the Romans
16.) Cemetery Walks – Ryan Ober and the Romans

Ryan’s been playing great music in our town for a long time and his new album is excellent. Last Saturday was WBKM’s 10th birthday party at Nectar’s. This next gentleman opened the night and played a great version of this song.

17.) Miss Ready Blossom – Aaron Flinn
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. We were so lucky to have Alice play in our town for so long. Great songs from Anachronist and Aaron. This next band just put out a brilliant new album called Justice Or Else.

22.) Skybot – Blowtorch
23.) S. Fiction – Blowtorch
24.) Clockwise – Blowtorch
25.) Gamma Ray – Blowtorch

Great stuff from a great band. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Frank’s Hot Sauce – Green Chapel
27.) Purple Sorceress – KiefCatcher
28.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
29.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Seth Yacovone
30.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Seth also played the WBKM birthday party. He played a great version of Mr Reed and he was joined by Aaron Flinn for an amazing version of Cowboy. Zeus rocked Radio Bean last night. Cool rockers from Green and Kief. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I’m off next week for Thanksgiving but will be back the week after to do it all over again.
