intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight by thinking about the cosmos and our place in it and what makes us different and what makes us the same.

1.) The Same Stars – Zola Turn
2.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
3.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

I love the imagery in that song. It’s nice to look up at the stars and realize that we all look at the wold from the perspective of one person going through it, which lets you understand how similar we all really are. I think all of those songs made that point in different ways. There is lots of music going on tomorrow and I will miss most of it since I have a ticket to go see Intergalactic Nemesis at the Flynn with my brother. If I wasn’t doing that, I’d likely go see these next two bands at the Monkey House.

4.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
5.) Goner – REDadmiral
6.) Honor Of The Rainbows parts 1 & 2 – Arc Iris

Arc Iris are playing at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow. They are pretty incredible and always put on a stunning show. This next song is a new one that has me hooked.

7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants Of Scotland
8.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
9.) Paper Tiger – Queen Tangerine

That was from a demo ep that came out before their one and only album. Great song from Aaron, who is a great guy and an amazing guitar player. Great new Elephants song! This next song is a new one that has me hooked.

10.) The Night Syd Barrett Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
11.) Mine All Mine – Cave Bees
12.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
13.) Bloodboy – Barbacoa

That was a fun cover of the Envy song by Barbacoa. Fun rocker from BB. I love the video for that one, which is shot at the OP. The Colin song has references to the Cave Bees and an alligator, so I had to play the Bees song. OK, here is the next song from Red Flannel Hash.

14.) Rotten Egg – Black Rabbit
15.) Good Old Days – Screaming Broccoli
16.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
17.) Mad Mary Jones – The Vacant Lots

Great song from the Lots who are headed to Europe again soon. Great song from Particles who come visit us from time to time. Classic rocker from Broccoli. This next song is a new and heavy and really cool song.

18.) Pastoral – Vultures Of Cult

That was pretty amazing. I love the way it steadily gets more intense. OK, let’s play some shorter songs, but still keep rocking.

19.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
20.) Domestic Tranquility – The Toes
21.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
22.) Get Your Own Bag – The Fags

Great song from the classic punk rockers. Solid rocker from the Siberians. The Toes are so wonderful, you have to experience them live to really appreciate them. Great song from Vetica. OK, there is time for a couple of more songs. This next one is from a ’90’s band who broke up, then got back together to make a new album.

23.) My New Mixtape – Eef
24.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No

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. One of the legendary Burlington musicians from the ’90’s released a new ep this week. She is celebrating with a release party tonight in California. This is the title song.

1.) Cowboy Summer – Alice Austin
2.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Snow In The Controls – Dom The Barber
4.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker

Great song from Milton. I’ve been waiting until it was snowy out to play the Dommer Barber song. It isn’t really snowy out, but is in late January. I have played the Jeremy song before but that was a demo and this is the brand new studio version. Great stuff from Alice, as always. This next band played a fantastic version of this song last week at Signal Kitchen.

5.) Golden Crutch – Swale
6.) Son, You Are No Island – Torres
7.) Year Of The Snake – Tyler Daniel Bean
8.) Jack Sharp – Swale

Swale played a rocking version of that one too. Tyler played that song solo acoustic, but it had a lot of fire, and the version I just played is the full band version. Pretty cool song. Island was the song that stood out the most at the Torres show, though I really liked it all. I love the slow build and heavy surge at the end. I though it would be fun to bookend that set with Swale. OK, here is the next song on Red Flannel Hash

9.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
10.) Throw Me Away – Spill
11.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
12.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian

Classic rocker from Ninja. FTC rocked us for a few years in the early 2000’s and put on some pretty intense shows. Spill are another great ’90’s band and that song always grabbed me. I just love that Rabbit song!! There is a cool show happening tomorrow at Twofourtwo Main with these next three bands.

13.) Last Song – Carraway
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) Nothing Important – Doom Service

Doom have a new album called Live At Mount Doom, so I got that one from that album. Great songs from Phantom and Carraway. I really have to make it to 242 Main tomorrow. OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) Ladders – Heavy Plains
17.) Great Scott – Wave Of The Future
18.) Too Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
19.) Hello World – Screaming Skull
20.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli

Killer song from the late ’80’s early ’90’s band. That Skull song is so cool. It’s a short intro followed by a shorter burst of intense rock. I just heard that the Blondes are playing at the Bowie tribute thing at Higher Ground tonight and I’m bummed I missed them. That is such a fun song from Wave. Great rocker from Plains. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
22.) Not True – Peg Tassey
23.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers
24.) Plastic Revolution

I keep singing that song “Revolution, Bern style now.” Great rocker from Gabby. Great rocker from Peg. Earthquakes had me bouncing around the studio, but of course, the other songs had me doing that too. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Something I Drew – Farm
26.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
27.) Weapons Factory – The Wards with the Dirty Blondes
28.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian

I love that song from Casey Merlin Rae. Classic from the ’80’s punk band. That was a re-recorded version with a bit of help from Diane Sullivan on vocals. Great song from Beano’s solo band. Hmmm, Farm. I liked the Torres show so much, I want to toss in another song. This is the title song from the new album.

29.) Sprinter – Torres
30.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy

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.

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. Last week I had it well together but this week the work time change hours from the last couple of weeks are really catching up. I slacked and did a short show then filled the rest of the time with Bowie songs, which I might have done anyway.

Songs before:Suffragette City – David Bowie
It Ain’t Easy – David Bowie

Song before: Station To Station (live) – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are The Sounds Of Burlington. It’s not as bustling in town this week but is a beautiful mellow night. I want to apologize since I think tonight is going to be a bit of a shorter show. My whole work schedule changed a couple of weeks ago and working early mornings Monday to Friday is taking some getting used to. I’m not sure if the change is permanent or temporary, but I’ll get used to it soon. Last Friday I got to see four great bands. This first band played another stunning show at The Skinny Pancake.

1.) If You Get Lost – Swale
2.) The Saddest Man – Myra Flynn
3.) Spi-Fy – Barbacoa
4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

Joe Adler and the Rangers played a wonderful show at Nectar’s last Friday. Myra opened and I picked up her Half Pigeon album and Saddest really jumped out. In hindsight I should have not left Barbacoa so soon, they played after Swale at the Pancake, but I thought the timing was tighter and Myra’s band was pretty amazing. Sometimes there is too much music in town. OK, let’s play the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

5.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
6.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Gettin High – Heavy Plains

Plains are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and I’m very psyched for the show. I love that new Elephants song. Mountain played a couple of stunning sets at Zen Lounge last Saturday. I love the Rabbit song, and all of their songs. I just got this next song last week and played it on last weeks show. I liked it so much I want to play it again.

9.) Barstools (live) – Abbie Morin
10.) Wiser – And The Kids
11.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
12.) Elanor Rigby – Screaming Broccoli

What a fun rocking cover by the late ’80’s Burlington band. I miss Ninja. Kids are out and touring the country. If they come to your town, go! Great song from Abbie Gail. This is another great Burlington classic.

13.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
14.) Extended Werewolf – farm

Both of those are such great songs. Well, I’m going to call it a night, but I have a bunch of Bowie stacked up if you want to listen for a while. 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. I played a lot of local artists doing Christmas classics. I upped the nutrition level of the show with a couple of songs from Screaming Broccoli. I played a couple of cuts from The Cuts. And Swale, I played a lot of Swale.

before: Delirious – The Church Band

recording begins
Song before: Beware Of Darkness – George Harrison.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The Calendar says it’s close to Christmas but with it 50 degrees and raining, it sure does not feel like it. I guess it’s a good thing the world leaders are at least putting some plans into action to attempt to halt global warming. My song before the show tonight was from the concert for Bangladesh. On Saturday a bunch of local musicians will recreate the show at Higher Ground. I think I’m working, but will be there if I can. Tonight, let’s begin with some local artist playing Christmas songs. Let’s begin with one of my favorites.

1.) Happy X-mas (War Is Over) – Joshua Glass Music
2.) Hallelujah – Swale
3.) Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer – Linda Bassick
4.) Carol of the Bells – Gordon Stone

Nice version of the classic by the super-talented Stone. Did you catch the version of that song with Stephen and Henry Rollins on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night? Check it out if you missed it! Great version of Rudolph by Linda Bassick. I love the lyric rewrite on the Cohen classic. Great song from Josh. Let’s keep going with more Christmas songs.

5.) It Came Upon A Midnight Clear – Electric Halo
6.) God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Viperhouse
7.) Silver Bells – Josh Glass
8.) Winter Wonderland – The N-Zones

That was a fun romp from the classic Burlington band. Another great song from Josh. Nice groove to the Viper song. Great interpretation from Halo, who feature Joe Adler and the music saw of Johnnie Day Durand. Let’s go back in time to the late ’80’s or early ’90’s when Burlington bands really came into their own.

9.) Rain – The Cuts
10.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
11.) So Nice – Ninja Custodian
12.) Let’s Bury Bob – Screaming Broccoli

Great rocker from the classic band. I love that Ninja song. I love that Decentz song. I had to play Rain due to the weather. OK, let’s get to the next song on Red Flannel Hash.

13.) Double Line – Black Rabbit
14.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No
15.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
16.) Beaten Down – Swale

The last time I listened to Pigs I though it has to mix into the Swale song. I’m psyched to see Francis at The Monkey House on New Year’s Eve! Killer Mountain song. Another classic from Rabbit. Swale just put out an EP with four Christmas songs, and are playing at the Monkey House tonight. I already played the fourth song on the album. Here are the other three.

17.) Just Another Day (Christmas) – Swale
18.) It’s Christmas – Swale
19.) Snow Again – Swale

Three new classics from one of the most wonderful bands in town. OK, let’s play some more classics from local bands.

20.) Santa Baby – Samara Lark Brown
21.) Frosty The Snowman – Construction Joe
22.) Jingle Bell Rock – Sarah Stickle
23.) The Christmas Song – Motel Brown

Just wonderful versions of classic songs. Here are some more.

24.) Little Drummer Boy – Aaron Flinn
25.) Merry Christmas Baby – Sandra Wright Band
26.) Oh Holy Night – Cait Hoffman
27.) Silent Night – Tammy Fletcher

Stunning solo vocal versions from Tammy and Cait. Nice groove to the Sandra song. Aaron is always so solid. OK, let’s play a few more then close with some regular local songs.

28.) White Christmas – Giovanina Bucci
29.) Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas – Greg Alexander
30.) Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – Scott Mangan

Three more absolute classics. OK, here is a song that always inspires me.

31.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
31.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
32.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
33.) In A Different Part Of The World – The Cuts

Cuts are showing a bit of Pinhead influence on that one. Killer song from Broccoli. Great new song from Homes. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I will be off the next two weeks to spend some time with my family. I want to say Happy Birthday to my brother Ken, since his birthday is Saturday. I will be back in 2016.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM. I highlighted a couple of the artists who make our town great, one who just left and one who is still playing for us. I also highlighted one of the great institutions that have brought music to our town for decades.

Before: Sealine – The Church Band
The Man’s Too Strong – Dire Straits
recording begins

Song before: Orion – Jethro Tull

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I want to highlight a couple of cool musicians who have brought so much to our town. I’ll get to that in a moment but first something cool happened earlier this week. I finally looked up in the sky and saw Orion. Despite the 50 degree temperatures today, you know winter is coming when Orion appears. This is my favorite local song about Orion.

1.) Stylus of Id – Somah
2.) Art Of Vandalay – Sad Turtle
3.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future

Justus Gaston plays guitar both in Sad Turtle and Wave. He’s a pretty cool guy and also plays drums in another cool band. I’ll get to that in a moment. For as long as I have been seeing and listening to music in town there has been a radio station from UVM that has taught people how to be DJ’s and has brought lots of underground music to any who want to listen. The have also done a stunning job of supporting local music for decades. Their local music show is called WRUV Exposure and happens every Wednesday. A few days ago the host, Dom the Barber, sent me a message that one of my favorite local bands would be playing live in the studio. He invited me to join them for the performance and to chat on the air in between songs. That happened yesterday, December 9th from 6:30-8pm. Dom sent me an mp3 of the show and I’m going to play the whole thing for you now. This band features Justus Gaston on drums and this is The Mountain Says No.

WRUV Exposure featuring The Mountain Says No playing live in their studio

4.) Long Term Sermon live – The Mountain Says No
5.) Who Could Say live – The Mountain Says No
6.) Iron And Metal live – The Mountain Says No
7.) Restaurant live – The Mountain Says No
8.) Christmas Sled studio version that Dom played – The Mountain Says No
9.) 3,000 live – The Mountain Says No
10.) Glazerbeam live – The Mountain Says No
11.) King Grifter live – The Mountain Says No
12.) I Know Right live – The Mountain Says No
13.) Ricky The Rider live – The Mountain Says No
14.) Come And Decide live – The Mountain Says No
15.) The Bomb live – The Mountain Says No

Hey guys, Tim here back in the studio. I think I played that whole thing for a few reasons. That is exactly what WRUV sounds like and has always sounded like. I really wanted to thank Justus for all of his contributions to our music scene, and to thanks Andrew Frappier, Ben Maddox, and Jedd Kettler for the same reason. I did it because that was a band playing a full live set that happened in town yesterday so is the sound of Burlington by definition. I did it mostly because I had it as one file and I really wanted to play both new Mountain songs on my show. Up next, I want to thank another person who has put a ton of music into our town. His name is Justin Gonyea and he has promoted a ton of shows at 242 Main and has played in a few bands. He’s off to Seattle and we wish him the best of luck. I’ll play a bunch of his music as a thank you for all he has added. But, before that, let’s play the second song on Red Flannel Hash, the album I am playing all the way through, song for song, week after week.

16.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
17.) Buy Two Get None Free demo – Crime Scene
18) Hello World – Screaming Skull
19.) Black Oil – Doom Service
20.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service

Justin played in Doom, Skull and did the Crime Scene thing with Bobby Hackney Jr.., Matthew Kimball and a few others just before leaving town. Thank you Justin!!!! Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed the day off last week and spent it with family and friends and friends that really are family. It’s great to find wonderful people and let them be part of your life. I’ve been thinking about seeing music and seeing people on the stage and you always want to think the best of them and hope they are wonderful people pursuing their dreams and art. Sometimes you don’t know people at all. Sometimes you get to know them a little, sometimes a lot. On rare occasions you get to know someone very deeply and get to see their delicate and powerful soul and find the staggering beauty in that. Tonight I want to start with a set from one of the most beautiful souls I have had the chance to know.

1.) Robin’s Song – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey
3.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey

Those are all staggeringly beautiful and strong songs from the Kissing Circle era and created and performed by the magnificent Peg Tassey. This next performer is pretty wonderful too.

4.) New York My Lovely – Joshua Glass Music
5.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
6.) Megan’s Song – Hana Zara
7.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith

2015 seems to be the year of change. That is a song about change from Maryse Smith who is leaving town. Hopefully, she will come back and visit from time to time. Hana moved back to Nebraska but sure put her mark on this town. I’m sure she will come and visit sometime too. Great songs from Milton and Josh. I saw this next artist the night before Thanksgiving at Radio Bean and greatly enjoyed his set.

8.) I Know – Dom the Barber
9.) Goner – REDadmiral
10.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
11.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy

I loved seeing Envy back in the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell, from the band, are in a cool new band called The Nancy Druids, who played a killer set after Dom that night at the Bean. Sean used to play with RT. Fun new song from Admiral. Nice ditty about aliens from Dom. Last time I finished playing the Phil Yates & The Affiliates album No Need To Beg, so now it’s time to start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week. For the next few weeks we will go all the way through Red Flannel Hash by Black Rabbit.

12.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
13.) Long Term Sermon – The Mountain Says No
14.) My New Mixtape – Eef
15.) Maleman – Eef

Classic song from the ’90’s in Burlington. It was cool to see Eef get back together to play a show last Friday at ArtsRiot. They played old ones like Male and new ones like mix, which is about making a mixtape for the girl you like, you know, that thing we did back in the ’80’s and ’90’s. Mountain played that show also and did a killer version of Sermon. Great song from Rabbit. More to come in the next several weeks. OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) Destroying Everything They see – Blue Button
17.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
18.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
19.) The Drone – The Cush

Those are four of the most intense songs ever played in Burlington. It’s not a complete list, but there is a lot of greatness in that set. OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
21.) If You Get Lost – Swale
22.) Glorkian Warrior Sleepytime – James Kochalka Superstar

I just got a bunch of Kochalka so expect to hear lots more soon. Great song from Swale. Killer new song by Francis that is unfortunately still timely. Maybe someday we really will make it a summer of love. OK, let’s step back in time.

23.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
24.) So They Say – The New Siberians
25.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox

I love the smooth and strong sound of Vox. I just love that new Siberians song. I love that classic from Decentz. I love this last song too.

26.) Bad Oasis – farm

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