1.) North Hyde Park – Hover
2.) Crazy – Clever Girls
3.) What’s To Become Of The Meaning Of Love – Daniel Romano
4.) Beach Day – Looms

Last Saturday I got to see Clever Girls play at The Monkey House with Looms and Hammydown and last night I saw Clever Girls with Daniel Romano at ArtsRiot. Tomorrow Clever Girls are playing at the Tarrant Art Gallery as part of Exhibitionists: Clever Girls at 5pm. OK, let’s play the last song on the Action EP.

6.) Everyday Weekend – 1881
7.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids
8.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand
9.) Epic – Laureate

Laurieate will come visit us on Sunday for a show at the Monkey House. I haven’t seen Grand for a while and hope to catch up with them soon. They are such a fun band. The Kids are at Higher Ground tonight and always put on a great show. Great song from 1881. I hope you enjoyed listening to all of the songs on their Light’s, Camera, and Action EP’s. I’ll start a new album to play song after song week after week, nest week. These next two bands will be at the Monkey House on Sunday too.

10.) From Here – The Red Summer Sun
11.) Ex-Files – Better Things
12.) Surf Showdown – The High Breaks
13.) The Territory – Hana Zara

Hana has a new album together called Where Amanda Is King. She just launched a Kickstarter to raise money to get it mastered and printed. She writes such great songs and I’m sure the new album will be terrific. The Breaks played at the Summervale festival in the Intervale earlier today. Great songs from Better and Summer. Here is a cool song that I have not heard in a while.

14.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
15.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
16.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
17.) The Drone – The Cush

The Cush have played many stunning versions of that song in our town over several years. Great song from Telephone who evolved out of Envy. Hero appeared for a year or so and went away but left us with some great music. I have not seen Western in ages but they put on some great shows in the 2010’s. OK, let’s keep rocking.

18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
19.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
20.) Alcohol Injection – Lord Silky
21.) The Path – Savage Hen

It’s been a while since I’ve seen the Hen. I may have to go check them out in a couple of weeks. Silky just put out a new album and play stunning rock shows. Gas was Beano Parker’s side project and the Wards were his main band. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
23.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
24.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
25.) Welcome To The Hellmouth – Doom Service

Doom have been playing some shows but I have not caught up with them in a while. I’ll have to change that sometime. As used to play some great punk for us but I have not seen them around lately. Samurai were in town a couple of weeks ago. Swim just played out west. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
27.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday July 20 and will go as follows.

Song before: Looking For A Place To Happen – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a great week for music and I’ve been getting out to as many shows as possible. This first performer took the stage for the first time in many years last Thursday and sounded as great as ever. This is the song she opened with.

1.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) (What’s So Funny ’bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding – Elvis Costello
3.) The Art Of Giving In – 1881
4.) Oliver’s Army – Elvis Costello

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at the station and for bringing so much great music to town. They are bringing Elvis Costello to the Shelburne Museum on Sunday and I could not be more excited. That’s the next song on 1881’s series of EP’s called Lights, Camera, Action. I had to stick that one in between other songs since the intro and outro are so fun. Great songs from Elvis and It was so great to hear Peg sing again. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog. Tonight we feature the amazing Andriana Chobot.

5.) Dig Him – Andriana Chobot
6.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
7.) Another Day – Andriana Chobot
8.) My Old Home – Andriana Chobot

I love Andriana’s songs and hope you do to. Thanks Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great. I saw this next performer play a couple of songs a long time and have loved their music ever since. I got to see them play a long show at American Flatbread yesterday and they were fantastic. Here is one of the songs they played.

9.) Urban Country – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
10.) Elevator – SWALE
11.) My New Mix Tape – Eef
12.) On My Way – Hover

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. Eef played around in the ’90’s too but got back together about a year ago for a show and I’ve loved the song Mix Tape ever since. That Swale song has been stuck in my head all week. I hope it gets stuck in yours too. Great song from David and the band. This next band are at Red Square tonight.

13.) Lovely Day – gneiss
14.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
15.) The Light – Kat Wright
16.) Salty Things – Queen Tangerine

Alice Austin and Julia Austin used to be in Zola Turn then did an album as QT and put out a few cool songs. Great song from Kat Wright‘s new album. Fun song from Madaila who will shut down Main st for a show in a few weeks. Gneiss are so lovely. This next band will be at the Amy E. Tarrant Gallery which is part of the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts for a free show at 5pm tomorrow as part of it’s Exhibitionist series.

17.) I Know, Right? – The Mountain Says No
18.) Sin Is Funner – Swillbillie
19.) Oklahoma Road Rage – Crazyhearse
20.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes

The Blondes, Crazy, and Swill will be at The Monkey House tomorrow and that show will rock. This next band rocked the Monkey House last week.

21.) Lunacy – Cave Bees
22.) NA – Modern Trigger
23.) Stick That In Your Juicebox And Sip It – Better Things
24.) The Wolves Are Coming – Suburban Samurai
25.) Time Travel – Bearchild

26.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale
27.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All the Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
29.) Tow Truck – David L Jarvis

I want to dedicate that song to everyone who’s been aggravated to find that their car has been towed, especially to people named Cody. Anders has a couple of shows coming up soon. Great songs from Dino and Swale. 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 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and can be heard over the air on both sides of the Champlain Valley or from the Facebook link above. It will go as follows:

Song Before: Red – King Crimson

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. There is a ton of great music happening this week and it’s almost all on Saturday. Let’s begin with a band who are a local treasure.

1.) Cancer – SWALE
2.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow
3.) As Glass – Wren Kitz
4.) Jessie – Danny LeFrancois

I saw Danny a couple of weeks ago play with The Parts at Manhattan. They opened with that song. He just sent me his solo album The Ghost Of Kevin Bacon and that one jumped out at me. Wren is another local treasure. Great song from Crow and gorgeous song by Swale. I want to take a moment to say how professional our local doctors are and to give a shout out to all the wonderful nurses in our town and all around our planet. You are amazing and do wonderful work. OK, let’s play the final song on Shovel Down, even though it’s not listed on the album.

5.) Just Open The Door – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) Winter Is Over – Apartment 3
7.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
8.) Brainwashed Nation – The Snaz

I think the Snaz have a new album but I have not checked it out yet. That’s an older classic. I love to play the Sarah song in the middle of winter and dream of summer. Apartment 3 are releasing their new album Saturday night at ArtsRiot. Great song from Seth. I’ll have to start a new album next week. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring WBKM.ORG. The Snaz will play there Saturday and open for this next artist.

9.) I Can’t See the Light – Marco Benevento
10.) Follow The Arrow – Marco Benevento
11.) Worlds Are Colliding (George Is Getting Upset) – Sad Turtle
12.) The Big One – The High Breaks

The High Breaks will bring their surf rock sound to Finnegan’s on Saturday and Turtle will open for them. Marco is just going to rock Higher Ground on Saturday. Also on Saturday, The Nancy Druids will rock The Monkey House. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell used to play in Envy and Sean used to play in this next band so their show will sound a little like these next two songs.

13.) Jet Pilot High – The Red Telephone
14.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
15.) Nothing In This – The Mountain Says No
16.) Give Love – 1881

That’s another great song from their Action EP. Mountain will release their new album Golden Landfill soon. Classics from Envy and Red Telephone. Last weekend was fun, I got to see Joe Adler and Binger Friday and Jeremy Gilchrist and Joe Adler on Saturday. It sounded a bit like this.

17.) Relax – Joe Adler
18.) Resurrection In Sanskrit I – Binger
19.) If I Knew – Binger
20.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter

Jeremy did not play that song, but it’s one of my favorites so I had to play it for you tonight. Binger played Resurrection and If back to back and made them sound great. Joe played a great version of Relax. OK, let’s pull out a fun song from the ’90’s.

21.) On My Way – Hover
22.) Way With Words – Kat Wright
23.) Sally – Daniel Waterhouse
24.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara

I love that song from Hana, and everything else that she does. Cool song from Daniel. Great song from Kat and the band. Hover were so much fun. OK, let’s play another song from Golden Landfill.

25.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
26.) Waiting – Mr. Doubtfire
27.) Black, Blue, And White – The New Siberians

Great song from Siberians. Doubtfire have been rocking our town a lot lately and are writing lots of new songs. Hmmm, Mountain. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Despite a super warm December, winter has pretty much set in. Let’s begin with some local songs about the cold time of year.

1.) Winter – Dave Jarvis
2.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No
3.) Stylus Of Id – Somah
4.) Northern Memory – The Cush

Such great cold imagery from the Texas band who spent many winters playing lovely music for us. Thanks Cush!! Stylus is all about Orion who appears in the sky in winter. That sled that you got for Christmas, but couldn’t use at the time, well now there is lots of snow and cold, so have at it. Nice song from Dave. It’s a bit of a mellow evening in Burlington, so let’s go with that vibe for a bit.

5.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
6.) The Night Syd Barrett Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
7.) Eve & Adam – Cricket Blue
8.) Afterlife – Hana Zara

Great song from Hana about living in the space between two lives. Great song from Cricket who are playing shows all over. I love all the local references in Syd. Super strong song from Maryse Smith. Let’s keep the mellow but strong vibe going for a bit.

9.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
10.) New York My Lovely – Joshua Glass Music
11.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
12.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Such a great song from Kat Wright and the band. Hopefully they will have new music soon. Nice cover done by a killer guitar player and a driving force behind Dark Side of the Mountain, who are playing in Stowe soon. If you like the Josh song check out his band Sammich. Great song from Jeremy Gilchrist. Tomorrow night at Radio Bean Barbacoa will be the backing band for a bunch of local artists playing David Bowie songs. I don’t know if anyone in this next band will be part of it, but they did release this song this week.

13.) Starman – Madaila
14.) Freak Out Friday – Rue Mevlana
15.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
16.) Melt – Chin Ho

Nice cover song from Ho. I thought it would be fun to bookend that set with the covers and stick a couple of new and old classics in between. This next set is for the optimists of the world.

17.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians
18.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
19.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
20.) In The Garden Of Mystic Lovers – Francis Dunnery

Francis is from Scotland but he lived in Vermont for a while around the time he released the album Man. He played Mystic and other song from the album often at Club Metronome. I just love the sentiment from Binger, and the rock. Great words from Bill and Bernie. OK, let’s take a swing through some ’90’s classics.

21.) On My Way – Hover
22.) Finder – Madelines
23.) Bloodboy – Envy
24.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail

Absolute classic from Wail. Great rocker from Envy. Finder is such a fun song with a great riff. I just love the Hover song. This next song is one that has always spoken to me. This is one of the coolest bands to ever play JP’s.

25.) Chester Allen – The World Famous Hanglows.

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week. I’ll say goodbye with the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

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 tonight’s local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I pulled our a few gems from the past and played a couple of songs that are barely a week old.

Songs before:Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
Let Us Go – The Church Band

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cold night in Burlington but a few intrepid souls are out and about and not letting it get them down. Here is a song I got a couple of days ago, but have been enjoying live for a few months now. This is Burn It Down Bernadette by Phil Yates & The Affiliates on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) Blue Light Blue – Heavy Plains
3.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers

I love that song and had to play it out of the Plains song. That’s another new song from Luke Awtry‘s new band. Great song by Phil Yates. I’m so happy to have new songs of theirs. Let’s play the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes. This is one of my favorites.

4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
5.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
6.) This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

Nice reggae feel to the Woody Guthrie classic. I think about the idea of pluralism we strive for in the United States and many other countries. It’s terrible when someone uses violence to try and silence an artistic voice. The response to the killings in Paris have been some incredible works of art that will touch millions of souls. The picture of the pencil with the words “This Machine Kills Fascists”, which is what Woody had written on his guitar, really hit me. The great part about art is it does not kill people, just bad ideas. Senator Sanders wages peace, so that is why I played that song. I love that song from Western!!! Last Saturday I made it out to The Monkey House and saw great sets from Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT. The Mountain Says No did a stunning job opening the show, but they don’t have anything recorded yet so I can’t play any of their songs. Instead, I’ll play a song from the soundtrack of Ben Maddoxs underwater adventures.

7.) Straight Outta Kill Kare – I See Fish People
8.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck (live) – Chin Ho!
9.) No Way – Phantom Suns

I’ve really got to get to know Suns better. Great song. Classic couple of songs from the mighty Chin Ho! This next song has been running through my head a lot, so I’ll play it again.

10.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
11.) I-90 East – ROUGH FRANCIS
12.) Freakin Out – Death World Wide

I’m so psyched about the show at the Flynn with Death, Francis and others. It’s going to rock! Sometimes the news gets too heavy. I mean you need to stay informed, but after a certain amount of understanding the world, sometimes you need a distraction.

13.) Distraction – When Particles Collide
14.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
15.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
16.) Bionic – The Red Telephone

Love the lyric in the RT song. I was feeling fired up the other day and had it running through my head. They used to rock Burlington with that one. Great song from Julia Austin and Alice Austin from the days after Zola Turn. Can’t waif for the new Kids album. Great song from Particles. This band seem to play for a while, go quiet for a while then play again. They’re around and this is a cool song.

17.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
18.) All Around – Hover
19.) Let The World Turn – Death.

I hope they play that one when they play the Flynn! Great song from Brad Searles old band. I love this next song, and love the live version just a little bit more.

20.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland
21.) Ornan’s Song – The Dirty Blondes
22.) 1.21 Jigawats – Wave of the Future

Love that song. Their guitar player plays drums for Mountain Says No and it was cool that most of Wave came to the show to support him. Ornan McLean plays drums for the Blondes and Elephants. OS was dedicated to my brother Ken who loves that song. Earlier today I asked for requests and got four. I’ll have to hold the Red Admiral until I’ve listened more but these next three are dedicated to Marc Scarano, David Jarvis Mark Crowther, and Kitty Kindbud.

23.) Flight Of The Alligator – Cave Bees
24.) Paper Train – Dave Jarvis
25.) You Can’t Always Get What You Want – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds

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. I played with the working man theme a bit with songs before, during, and after.

Songs before: Tonight’s The Night pt1 – Neil Young
Weeping Willow – Persian Claws

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I love to go to the clubs to see live music and this is a song I’ve been dancing to for ages. Today, I get to play it for you. This is Everyone Likes To by Swale on Wbkm, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
2.) We’re Closed! – Blue Button
3.) Never Enough – Zola Turn

Another great song from Zola and the third song on Ninja Jane. I’ve always love the dancing maybe line. That angst of asking is it ever enough reminded me of the frustration Jason Cooley expressed in the song We’re Closed! There is also a great line about trying to get in, in the Swale song.
Most of us work for a living, and there are good and bad parts of that. This next set is dedicated to everyone who dreams of not working, but goes to work anyway.

4.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail
5.) I Need A Raise – Cave Bees
6.) Rejected – Black Rabbit
7.) I Quit – Blotto

Blotto are from Albany and played a ton of fun songs. That is one of those songs that everyone understands. I loved seeing them at Hunts, a long time ago. The line about wanting to quit in the Rabbit song inspired the set, then it made me think of Blotto. Once that was set, the Cave Bees song was a natural, especially with Rebekah Whitehurst;s killer performance with Blue Button at The Monkey House last week. Pooloop and Dino Bravo VT also rocked hard that night. I needed one more and asked on Facebook. Eric Olsen suggested the WW, which was perfect. OK, it’s a beautiful summer in Vermont, but that also means mosquitoes.

8.) Giant Mosquitoes – Cold Sweat
9.) Summertime – Peg Tassey MUSIC and the Velvet Ovum Band
10.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
11.) Hangover Dreaming – Gorgon
12.) Mad Mary Jones – THE VACANT LOTS

The Vacant Lots used to play in town all the time, but now they have put out the Departure album this Tuesday, and are touring with Brian Jonestown Massacre and playing in London and Glasgow. I got this yesterday and had to play it today. Gorgon will play the Monkey House next week and I have to get out to see them. I love that Doll Fight song. It is summer and the Peg song describes it beautifully. Here’s another fun song from Burlington’s past.

13.) Rudy’s Kookie – The Spring Heeled Jacks something happened and a wail of feedback happened. I dumped the song and went into
14.) 5-30 – Hover
15.) Rudy’s Kookie – The Spring Heeled Jacks (played fine)
16.) Sound Drivers – Endless Jags
17.) Paint This City – The Vacant Lots

I listened to their new album this morning and that one jumped at me. Another great song from the Jags. Sorry about the feedback. I had to swap the Jacks and Hover. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
