4.) How We Roll – James Kochalka Superstar
5.) Hungry Like The Wolf – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger with The Lynguistic Civilians

So, last year I developed a live in the studio music series with Ryan Cohen and Robot Dog Studio.

23.) Interview/Local Lore – Savage Hen

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM in the Champlain Valley, also streaming at our website, will go as follows:

Song before: Soul Eternal – Anderson Ponty Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington, but something unusual happened late Monday night. A meteor with a blue trail sailed over Vermont and could be seen all around New England. Let’s begin with a brand new song that speaks of meteors.

1.) Oysters – Jane Boxall Percussion with Miriam Bernardo
2.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
3.) Spirit Won’t Fall Down – Rachel Brown
4.) Sharktopus – Villanelles

That’s a cool new song from Villanelles cool new album Blue Heart Attack. Spirit is a song from Burlington’s ’90’s and I still remember seeing Rachel and how powerful her voice is. Great song from Milton who is at Light Club Lamp shop tonight at 8pm. Jane just put out a new album called Field Notes. Miriam’s voice just makes that song. OK, it’s time for the next song on Callisto.

5.) Look Ahead – Alpenglow
6.) Too Much – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Hallelujah – Dirty Blondes
8.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

That’s a brand new song from the brand new Elephants album The Perfect Map. I had a great time seeing the Blondes at Nectar’s on Monday and while listening, I knew I wanted to play that one for you. Great new song from Slingshot. Their new album Break is still keeping me listening to it. Great new song from Alpenglow. This next band are at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow.

9.) Edible – SWALE
10.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
11.) Finder – Madelines
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons filled a rock void in the early 200’s and played some killer shows. Finder is a classic from the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell from Envy are playing in their new band The Nancy Druids at Radio Bean on Friday at 10pm. I really enjoyed seeing this next band a little over a week ago at The Monkey House

13.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
14.) Say It – Anachronist
15.) Speed Car – Torpedo Rodeo
16.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath

SS are really The High Breaks when they play Sabbath covers. They did such a great job rearranging the songs into a surf style. I saw Torpedo a few times in the early 00’s and always had a rocking time. I love Say It!! Better should have lots of cool new music coming soon. OK, let’s go back to the ’80’s. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to go.

17.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
18.) Melt – Chin Ho
19.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
20.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC played some great music back in the ’90’s. That’s a pretty new song from Admiral. They are playing Sunday at Radio Bean. I played Chin Ho’s cover as an homage to the ’80’s Ladies who have the show before me on Thursday nights at 7pm on WBKM. That song from the Decentz always gets me moving. A former local musician and music writer who has been working at the Future Of Music Coalition, Casey Merlin Rae, has just moved on to a job with SiriusXM. Congratulations. Here is one of his solo songs.

21.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
22.) Another Life Ago – The Cush
23.) Before The Evenings Thru – THE VACANT LOTS

The lots used to play around in the early 10’s but are now touring the US and touring the world. Great song from the Cush’s first album. They played that song many times in Burlington. Yea Casey! This next song is pretty new and catchy as can be.

24.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
25.) Random Earth – Elephants Of Scotland
26.) For Buddy – Elephants Of Scotland

Those are the two last songs on Elephant’s new album The Perfect Map. 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 a lot of music that has been played in our town recently, and a couple of oldies.

Song before: Far Escape – Active Heed

promo

intro

From our…(nothing on the vocal meter, play song, reset microphone, realize song is in the setup phase, stop and reset it) From out small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry I was out last week, but I’ve seen a ton of music in the last few days. I’m going to play a bunch of bands who played The Precipice last week. Tonight’s show is dedicated to my brother Ken who went to the show with me. Let’s start with a band I saw a couple of weeks ago. This is Demon Moon by Crazyhearse on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
2.) The Drone – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale

Swale played a killer set at The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival last week, including a killer version of that song. I love the new Crazyhearse song and something in the sound made me want to play it into the Cush. OK, it’s time to continue with Ninja Jane. I’ve always loved this song.

4.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
5.) Miss Vermont – Chin Ho!
6.) 1.21 Jiggawatts – Wave of the Future

Wave’s EP will be released next week, but Luke Richer sent me a copy today. Nice recording by the band and Ben Maddox. Classic songs from Chin and Zola. Friday at the Precipice there were a lot of staggeringly talented bands that make you want to dance. This is one of them.

7.) Afterall (Glad We Made It – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
8.) The Ballad Of Tom Smith – The Skamaphrodites
9.) Angatta – Barika

Barika and ISB had people dancing all Friday night. Swale did a set of covers with various singers. One was Dan Bolles, so I wanted to play one of the songs by his old band to give you a hint of what it sounded like. Also, in the cover set, Nichole sang I Love Rock And Roll. Here’s one of her songs.

10.) On Top Of The World – Dwight & Nicole
11.) Into The Light – Great Western
12.) Vim – Jane Boxall
13.) Sail The Sea – Gregory Douglas

Gregory sang a song with Jane Bee during her marimba set. That was a song with his voice and the one before was Jane solo. Nice song from Great Western who are playing tomorrow at Nectar’s. I saw Maryse Smith last week at Radio Bean and at the Precipice where she played with Michael Chorney. She played this both times and I’ve been singing it all week.

14.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
15.) Guitar – Michael Chorney
16.) This Isn’t Your Parade – Crazyhearse
17.) The Globe – Landlady

I still remember clearly the show Landlady played at Signal Kitchen a couple of weeks or months ago. I wanted to play it because I love it, I saw Guardians Of The Galaxy today, and when listening to the Crazyhearse song, it made me think of that song. Wow, two songs from their new album made me think of great songs. That’s pretty impressive. Backing vocals on that song are by Rebecca Rogers. Michael and Maryse were great at the Precipice. Hey, you know who else played a song with Swale in the Swaleoke set? That’s right, James Kochalka Superstar.

18.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
19.) Trans Am – Barbacoa
20.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
21.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

RF played a killer set at the Precipice. They also did the Swaleoke thing with Amanda Gustafson on keys, Tyler Bolles on bass, Eric Olsen on guitar, Paul Comegno on guitar, Julian Hackney on guitar, Urian Hackney on vocals, and Bobby Hackney Jr. on drums. Their collective version of Now I Wanna Be Your Dog might be my top local music event ever. Maybe not, but it’s way up there. Barbacoa played a killer version of Trans at the Precipice. Saturday, we had to leave a bit early, since Ken had to work in the morning. We missed most of this band’s set, but did catch this song.

22.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
23.) Hallelujah – The Dirty Blondes
24.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
25.) Antiphon – MIDLAKE BAND

Thanks to Mike Luoma for turning me on to, and getting me a ticket to see Midlake when they played Higher Ground last week. As an acoustic three-piece, they sounded very close to the full band version, when they played Antiphon. Peg Tassey did not play the Precipice, but did show up to check out some of the music. The Bondes played a killer show Friday night. Too bad Becky was in jail in Cleveland, but Diane Sullivan did a great job with the vocals. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

One more song before I go. If more people understood what this next song means, the world would be a happier place. We are groot.

The Precipice Day 1 Friday August 1, 2014 in the field behind Burlington College   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music yesterday, and last night, and this morning. It was day 1 of The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival, and I had been waiting for months. The morning had a rough start with a low battery chirping fire alarm waking me up at 8. I was able to get a few things done, then caught a little nap in the afternoon. Around 3, I headed out the door, caught a bus to Shelburne and met up with my brother Ken. He has liked a lot of the local music that I play on my radio show, and it was well past time to get him out to see some.

I borrowed a car and we drove to the show. We parked by the college and took the long winding walk down the hill. Instead of using the full bottom part of the field, they used about half of it. Last year, everything was more spread out, and this year it was a bit more concentrated. There were enough people at the height of the show to make it feel full, but not even remotely packed. There was plenty of space to spread out and walk around. There were several food vendors, a place to get henna tattoos, and a couple of other attractions. The main event was in a large tent with a stage on each side and a soundboard in the middle. There a fair amount of room between the stage and soundboard, but at times it did get a bit cramped. The effect of almost continuous music had it’s ups and downs. Last year it was fun to check out a couple of different bands and see which one grabbed you, but this year, it’s one at a time. I have mixed feelings, but it did concentrate people a bit more, and that feeling of being one of the few people seeing a band at a festival, was not there. Either way, they set the stages that way, and went with it.

We arrived a few minutes early, and heard Jane Boxall warming up on the marimba, but soon enough, it was time for the show.

Binger were the first ones on. They are a guitar, bass, drums trio with guitarist and bassist singing. They started with a hip hop groove but built the song into an indie rock work out. As the show went on, they seemed comfortable playing jazz, indie, hip hop, at times sounded a bit like a prog rock band and had some notes of metal here and there, Lots of hammer on guitar and bass playing showed how good they are with their instruments. I was impressed that they could play around with so many genres but still sound cohesive. They have an album coming out in a couple of months, and I will have to check it out.

As their last notes rang out, my focus turned 180 degrees and Jane was at the marimba and ready to go. Gregory Douglas sang a beautiful song, and showcased his remarkable voice. Michael Chorney came up next and they did a sweet cover of Neil Young’s Ambulance Blues. Jane took it from there and played a couple of bouncy old timey tunes that got the slowly filling audience to smile and have a good time. Pyramid followed and she showcased her ability to play the instrument with anywhere between 6 and 0 mallets (she ended the piece by playing with just her hands). She wrapped it up with a little Salsa Mexicana and called it an evening.

I turned around and Grundlefunk filled the stage. They played as a 9-piece with guitar, bass, drums, keys, singer, a percussion/trumpet player, a couple of sax players, and there must have been another horn player in there too. The sound was mixed perfectly and you could hear the guitar cutting through the sound, the keys taking the lead, or whatever they needed the music to do. They sounded like a big full jazzy brassy funk band. The audience was slowly filling in, danced and had a great time.

Up next, a group of masked chaos masters, apparently all named El Beej, except the drummer who was Sergeant Cody, played a loosely odd set of sonic weirdness. They got a cool vocal sound out of an old telephone, and the two guitar, bass, drums, two sax, and keyboard band swerved and drifted as Joe Adler kept asking if anyone was there. At times they had a big rocking jazz(?) sound, and had a slow steady huge build for the last song. The playing was great, and the set was fun and I was happy to see the keyboard player was from And The Kids, who will play tonight.

After their set, Steady Betty came on and locked into a groove. They were super tight and the harmonies were delightful. Kat Wright’s voice blended beautifully with Miriam Bernardo’s and Linda Bassick added some sweet backups. The mellow happy rock steady sound had a lot of people dancing and having a great time. Their songs of social justice, wrapped within a happy dance groove were fun an powerful. The sheer talent of the players was on full display. They wrapped it up with the song that goes la la la, and then it was time to turn around again.

Barika were set to go and played some super smooth building flowing jazz. The sound is driven by a sting instrument called a Kamel N’goni, and the plucked strings lead down a path filled with the key/trombone, sax, trumpet, bass and drums. The music has a lovely sweeping flow and kept the audience dancing. Miriam and Kat joined them for one song and the whole set was a relaxed good time.

Up next, Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band filled the stage. The whole tent, past the soundboard, was dancing as they played some soul with a few rock and roll edges. With guitar, bass, drums, keys, and a couple of sax players, they created a beautiful space to let Kat loose. Her voice is warm and sweet and her stage demeanor is relaxed and confident. She led the band through lots of solid songs, and sang at least one with guitarist Bob Wagner. While the relaxed dance vibe thing works for most people, it left me wanting a bit of rock and roll. Bob threw in some nice guitar work, here and there during the set, so it made me happy.

Up next, it was time to rock. The Dirty Blondes were a little shorthanded, since Rebecca Rogers had recently been arrested in Cleveland, but they persevered. Sole singer Diane Sullivan was the opposite of Kat, loud brassy, and in your face. The band ripped through some very fast versions of their songs. From the opening notes of Burn, they played loud fun punk rock. Crybaby has a fun flow to the rhythm. They taught everyone the dance move for Kung Pao. Things threatened to get a bit spiritual with Hallelujah, but the ripping guitar and killer bass kept it nicely grounded. Slut was loud and fast, and Ornan McLean‘s drumming was blistering. Drunk was fun to sing, and Jacking Off has a great flow to the music. That New Guy Is Not James Bond had a nice spy theme going to it, and they wrapped the night with a cover of Cher’s Turn Back Time. The audience had fun with it and the guitar especially ripped. All in all, the set was a tad rough, but I was blissfully happy.

It was after midnight at this point. The air had a hint of crispness to it, but was still pretty warm. The audience had dwindled a bit, maybe due to the late hour or the Blondes volume, but there were lots of people there as Ryan Power hit the stage. He was playing keys and singing, and was joined by guitar, bass, drum, and another keyboard player. His songs are unique pop sort of songs. There are lots of layers of voice and keys and Michael Chorney mentioned that it doesn’t sound like anything else he’s ever heard. I concur.

It was late, and I was starting to feel drained. Ken was tired too, so we listened to most of Ryan’s set as we walked up the long hill. Bella’s Bartok and Plato’s Ears were still set to play, but it’s hard to catch everything. I drove him back to Shelburne, then drove home to Burlington. Later today, I will go pick him up, and we will do it all over again, this time with even more rock and roll!

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I started slow, the let it rock.

Song before: Early Morning Dreams – Pete Townshend

promo

intro

From our – why is the mic light not lit up?

1.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Sorry about the mic mishap. That was a brand new song from Alice! Let’s keep going with another great singer songwriter.

2.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
3.) Liar – Maryse Smith
4.) Afterlife – Hana Zara

About a year ago I saw Hana for the first time at The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival. She blew me away and I’ve gone back to see her as many times as I could. Nice song with lots of great changes from Maryse. I just saw this next band playing in the Intervale, and they had to be a bit mellow, because of the kids.

5.) Wiser – And The Kids
6.) The Mime – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
7.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
8.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
9.) Bulletproof Vest – Zola Turn

Songs like that are why I want to play Ninja Jane all the way through. Songs like that kept me going back to see Zola again and again. Great new song from Swale. I cant’ wait to get the album and play the title song. They played a great show last Friday at Radio Bean. Great song from Particles. If you live in America, go see them, they are probably playing somewhere near you. Great song from Joe Adler. He’s done such a great job booking Radio Bean and the Precipice, and I’m so psyched for this years edition of the festival. He’s also a big supporter of And The Kids. They will play a rocking show tomorrow at Radio Bean.
I just heard that Jane Boxall joined Black Rabbit. I’m going to play one of her solo marimba songs, then her old band Doll Fight, then a Black Rabbit song, so you can guess what it will sound like.

10.) Pyramid – Jane Boxall
11.) Morning Again – Doll Fight!
12.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
13.) Shut Up – Gorgon

Gorgon played a killer show at The Monkey House on Monday. They rose from the ashes of Doll Fight! I hope you can imagine how Jane will sound in Black Rabbit. Hey, it’s summer. Let’s go to the beach. Jane plays on this one too.

14.) Beach Song – Ray Fork
15.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
16.) Catskills – Alpenglow

That song makes me think of driving up Route 9N on a sunny day. They are playing a free show at Signal Kitchen on Saturday. Blotto used to play in town a long time ago. 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 radio show 23 on WBKM.ORG. With the cool rainy weather, I was a little mellower than sometimes, but the show rocked. I played some of the music I bought at the Precipice.

Song Before: Afterglow – Genesis (live)

Promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to thank Sarah Grant and Lee Anderson and everyone else who made The Precipice a great show. Special props to Joe Adler for helping make it happen. This song is dedicated everyone who loves their brother or sister, and especially to my brother Ken.

1.) Brothers and Sisters – Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger

2.) Carry That Load – Anna Padernik and Her Apologies

3.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale

That was the second song on Swale’s album A Small Arrival. Next week we will get to song three. I talked about not making enough money to get by, and how that relates to most VT musicians. Talked about feeling torn about leaving Swale at the Precipice, to see Anna. But, Anna’s voice is great and I love her solo songs I bought her CD at the show. Before that was Johnnie Day Durand playing the saw with Joe and the Rangers. Happy Birthday yesterday. Another cool show was Jane Boxall Allen playing a set on marimba. She had some guests, including Raph Worrick who sang this song as she played.

4.) Let’s Complain – Ray Fork

5.) Pyramid – Jane Boxall

6.) Afterlife – Hana Zara

Talked about loving the crystal clear stories Hana sang at the show. I bought a disc and read that this song is from when she was living in Nebraska and had just made the decision to move back to Burlington, and the song was about the space between the decision and the change. Jane sang great, played great, and was a wonderful front woman. She also played with Steady Betty. Caroline O’Connor played with Steady Betty too. Her band, Vedora tore it up on Saturday.

7.) Terrarium – Vedora

8.) Linea – Vetica

9.) While Egypt Was Burning – Doll Fight!

Yea! Brand new Doll Fight! This is a cool song about Americans reaction to the Arab Spring. They did not play the Precipice, but their singer/guitar player Christine Mathias played sax with Steady Betty. Vetica really rocked on Sunday. Some people sat for the show but I could not. Vedora was fantastic, and it was great to see them again. We have a cool local weekly magazine called Seven Days. Many of the people who work there, play in bands. I can’t play any Monoprix, with drummer Steve Hadeka, since there is none recorded, per Daniel Bolles, but I can play three others. The first is a band that had the audience dancing so hard, the ground was a bit more level on Saturday.

10.) Bob Bannon – The Skamaphrodites

11.) Hallelujah – The Dirty Blondes

12.) Come To Space – Rough Francis

Bobby Hackney jr plays in Rough Francis, Diane Sullivan plays in the Dirty Blondes (and is fit enough to do onstage pushups), and Dan Bolles sang for the Skamaphrodites. All three work for 7 Days. I hope you enjoyed checking out the very current music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
