Tonight’s local music radio show will stream at WBKM and can be heard over the air at 107.1FM. It will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

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

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a woman who has come to town for years to share her music with us. Here is the brand new song she just released.

1.) Walkabout – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
2.) Mama – Ivamae
3.) Powder – The New Siberians
4.) Lovely Day – gneiss

That song makes me so happy. I hope it does the same for you. Great song from the Siberians debut album from a few years ago. Ivamae are so wonderfully talented. Great new song from Sarah. OK, here is the next song from Lights Camera Action and is the last song on the Lights EP.

5.) Sleepwalker – 1881
6.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
7.) Alan’s Garden – Ruckzuck
8.) Last Day Of May – The Red Telephone

Today is the first of June so I thought that would be appropriate to play. After seeing Ruckzuck so much last week, I’m still pretty enthralled with them and wanted to play Garden again. Great rocker from Nancy and wonderful song about insomnia from 1881. That’s a lot of sheep to count. OK, I almost saw this band last Tuesday at Light Club Lamp Shop but I worked just late enough to miss them

9.) Sri Lanka – Ellen Degenerates
10.) I Will – Camp Howard
11.) The Field – The Dead Shakers
12.) Look At The Lilacs – Binger

The lilacs around town have begun to fade but what a show they have put on for the last couple of weeks. I missed Ellen at the show last week, but did catch Howard and Shakers and really enjoyed both. OK, here is a song that really speaks about Burlington Vermont.

13.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
14.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
15.) Ornan – Dirty Blondes
16.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I heard that John M Whyte has joined Ornan McLean in the Blondes and both play in Elephants so i had to play those two. Can’t wait to see him play a show with them. Great songs from Doubtfire and Violint. There’s a guy around town named Joe who makes and brings us lots of music. Here is one of his songs.

17.) Stratosphere – Joe Adler
18.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
19.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
20.) 45 (live) – Clever Girls

Such a complex and beautiful song from the Girls. Great song from the enchanting Hana Zara. Cricket are so wonderful and so is Joe. OK, here is a Burlington classic.

21.) My Old Boyfriend – Wide Wail
22.) Ladybug – Ninja Custodian
23.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho
24.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker

Great newish song from Milton. Classics from Chin, Ninja, and Wail. OK, here’s a brand new song from Swale. They are just about to drop the new album There’s No One Here and this is a breezy instrumental.

25.) Here’s Where You Are – SWALE
26.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale
27.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
28.) Once Upon – Vedora

Classic song from Caroline Marie. Her band Steady Betty is playing around town for Jazzfest. Myra is playing at least one show and doing a songwriting workshop, which sounds cool, as part of the huge festival. Hmmm, Swale. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a great time seeing music last Saturday at ArtsRiot. I worked a long 8-4:30 day and was pretty stressed by the end. I hung out at home for a while then took the long walk to Pine st. It was a lovely day and the walk helped take me away from the work focus. I arrived a bit after 8:00pm doors opening and well before the 8:30 start time. I was about to wander in when Luke Adam called me over to the outside bar. I chatted with him and a couple of his friends for a while, then it was time to head in.

I settled in and found a nice post to stand and lean up against. The crowd was small and mellow and most of the seating area was filled. It was not long until Ivamae took the stage. Playing solo, she walked up the the mic and began singing. Though the room had filled a bit, it was pin drop silent as she mesmerized the room with her voice. She picked up an electric guitar for the second song and sang about true colors. She introduced the next song as The Reality Of It All and the room was still silent and listening. She sang a song about taking care of me and nobody else. I looked around and the standing area was filled with people quietly sitting on the floor. She followed with a cover of the Amy Winehouse song You Send Me Flying. I think the next one was about guilt and fear and she closed the set with a very new song about not being able to find the truth. Her strong voice, powerful presence and intent audience made it a stunning show.

I hung out during the set break and chatted with Joe Adler, then it was time for Arc Iris. They were set to play their reconstructed version of Joni Mitchell’s Blue album. The band play a beautiful blend of pop, progressive rock, and jazz, or something like that. They played all of the songs in very unique ways that left Joni’s path intact but sounded like Arc Iris could have written them. They rearranged the order of the songs and began with A Case Of You. Jocie has a captivating voice and is a perfect front woman. Her keyboard and guitar playing just add to the mix. It’s a joy to watch Zach plays keys. He’s all over them and looks so happy doing it. Ray Belli is a tremendous drummer. When you listen to the arrangement and find the groove and swing to the beat, he’s already thrown in a few notes you weren’t anticipating. All three could likely do engaging solo shows but their power together is over the top. I tried to soak it all in as they played Carey and This Flight Tonight. My Old Man and Little Green were challenging and fun. California had a bit of madman jazz to it. They followed with The Last Time I Saw Richard and rocked River super hard. They closed the set with All I Want and Blue. They came back for an encore and I’m not sure what they played. It was jazzy and proggy and fun to listen to.

I headed out fairly quickly and ran into Luke again. We chatted until his turn off then I brought the body up to full speed for the long walk home.

Thanks Luke Awtry Photography for the pictures
