Song before: Satellite – Guster

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I had great plans to see lots of music this week, but twisted my ankle on Friday and sat (with leg up and icepack on) out too much of it. It’s a bit better now so I should be all set soon. Today has been cloudy and cool and humid and I’ve been in a spacey sort of mood. Let’s take a trip through the last 30 years in town and start with Move Through Time by Persian Claws on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
2.) Pauses – Black Rabbit
3.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
4.) All My Life – Wide Wail

Killer song from a classic band from Burlington’s glorious ’90’s. Some people say Burlington bands come in waves and there are times when there is not much around. Even in those troughs bands like Video Pigeon were around rocking beautifully. Killer new song from Rabbit. Great song from the Claws!! OK, let’s stay in the ’90’s for a bit.

5.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
6.) Last Man Standing – Band X
7.) Jules Rosen and Joe Steel – Brave The Vertigo
8.) One More Grave – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae used to play in bands in town, then wrote the music column for Seven Days and is now working in DC to help find ways for musicians to get paid for their music. Yea!! I really wanted to check out Vertigo at Radio Bean last night, but the ankle said no. Killer song from Band X who sort of evolved into Elephants of Scotland. OK, let’s go on to the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through week after week, song after song.

9.) Who could Say – The Mountain Says No
10.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag
11.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
12.) Abilene – The Lonestar Chain

I’ve been watching the flooding in Texas and saw a mention on the Weather Chanel of Abilene and thought of Burette Douglas and this song. Killer song from Hana. Zag is one of the known unknown cool artists in town. Mountain will be at Radio Bean on Saturday and I really want to make it to the show. I was thinking of checking out this next band when they played Summervale today, but walking down the hill away from the radio station was not going to happen today, short of an act from God.

13.) Dear God – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
14.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox
15.) Holiday – Guppyboy
16.) Old Man – Will

Killer song from the Rutland band from the early 2000’s. When they broke up they became Thompson Gunner and Split Tongue Crow. Killer song from the classic ’90’s band. Jericho are playing around a bit and were really cool when I saw them a couple of months back. OK, let’s go back to the early ’80’s, or maybe ’70’s.

17.) At The Diner – Zoot Wilson
18.) 2012 – Lobot
19.) Waterlanding – Swale
20.) Ladders – Heavy Plains

Nice song from the super new band who will be at Nectar’s tomorrow. Swale and one other band will be there too. A few weeks back Chris Farnsworth gave me a collection of songs that Lobot had left over. That one was pretty cool. Hmmm, Zoot. This next band is the other one playing Nectar’s tomorrow.

21.) Ruffians – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
23.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
24.) Stop – REDadmirial

Admiral were at The Old North Ender last night. I had hopes of checking out some of them then heading to the Bean for Vertigo, but it was the couch and ice for me. I’ve got to go see them! Killer song from the 2000’s punk band. Gas was Beano Parker, from the Wards, side project and really rocked! OK, in classic Burlington style, this next band will be at the Bean at the same time as the Nectar’s show tomorrow. Rats!! I love this band.

25.) It’s Happening – Anachronist
26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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 highlighted some of the music that was played last week, some of the music that happened tonight and some of the many bands who are playing at different venues on Saturday. I also said goodbye to Lendway in a big way.

Song before: Aura – The Church Band

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. There was a lot of great music at Radio Bean last night, and there are a lot of great shows coming up. But, tonight I want to say goodbye to one of my favorite bands, Lendway. Michael Clifford is heading to California, but they did play a killer goodbye show at Nectar’s on Saturday. They were great, and rocked really hard, and had great harmonies, and I will miss them. It’s the end of the band, but ends always bring new beginnings. This is a beginning, always a beginning. This is Yardsale by Lendway on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Yardsale – Lendway
2.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music
3.) Showdown At The Blue Moon Hotel – Jerichovox
4.) The Way It Is – Maryse Smith

I was hoping Maryse was going to play live in the studio tonight. Unfortunately, something came up and she was not able to make it. Hopefully she will stop by sometime soon. She will play at Radio Bean on Saturday at 9. Unfortunately, I already got tickets for Barbacoa and Rough Francis that night, so will miss that, and all the other shows on Saturday. I went out to the Bean last night and finally saw Jerichovox. I had a really good time and they played a solid version of Hotel. I had to put in the Josh song after the Lendway song. That’s not a jab, it’s just the way it is. OK, on to the next song on Swale’s album The Next Instead.

5.) Before The Night – Swale
6.) I’m Thrilled – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
7.) Two Sleepy Arms – Lendway

I love that song. Phil is releasing his new album No Need To Beg on Saturday at New City Gallery on Church st. It’s happening the same time as the Higher Ground Rough Francis show. Rats. Black Rabbit are playing that show too, acoustic. Really?? Phil’s album came out Tuesday but the party is Saturday. Great Swale song. OK, let’s rock.

8.) Venus In Spurs – Barbacoa
9.) Not A Nice Guy – ROUGH FRANCIS
10.) Asphyxia – Better Things
11.) Definitions – As We Were

After Jerichovox played last night, Better Things came on and rocked hard and As We Were followed and really let loose. Despite everything I will miss on Saturday, I’m very excited to see Francis and Barbacoa! My brother is coming along. Black Rabbit acoustic? Really? They always rock hard. Here they are rocking hard.

12.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit
13.) Terrarium – Vedora
14.) You’re Safe With Us – Lendway

I love that song. Vedora are playing Radio Bean on Saturday after Maryse. I really need to be 3 people that night. Come on Dan Bolles, haven’t you cloned me yet? I could really use it for Saturday! So, tonight Joe Adler, Aaron Flinn, Michael Chorney, and Eric George are playing songs and telling stories at the Skinny Pancake. Here’s one of Joe’s songs.

15.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
16.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
17.) Gone With Eraser – Lendway

Another great song. Great song from Dave. I’m sure the show at the Pancake is lots of fun. Here’s a song from Aaron.

18.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn
19.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox
20.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things.

Things played a wicked fast version of that last night at the Bean. Jericho played a great version of train last night. Hey, did you notice I didn’t play any Lendway in that last set?

21.) Take Your Gold Away – Lendway
22.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone
23.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz

I think the Snaz are the only band I’m playing tonight that I have not seen. I should fix that. Last week I played a new demo from the New Siberians and really liked it. Tonight, I will play one from their first album.

24.) Star – The New Siberians
25.) Hollywood – Lendway
26.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone

This is a beginning, always a beginning, and the end always equals the start. Thanks for all the great music Michael, Matthew Bryan Hagen, Todd Gevry, Kevin Lynam. California’s gain, is Vermont’s loss. Come back anytime Michael. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Jerichovox, Better Things and As We Were at Radio Bean April 15, 2015   Leave a comment

Radio Bean picture by Tim Lewis

I had a great time seeing music last night at Radio Bean. A few weeks ago my neighbor gave me a copy of the album by Jerichovox, since his friend was in the band, I gave it a listen and was favorably impressed and have played a few songs on my radio show. I was psyched when I saw them on the Bean calendar and marked the date. I headed downtown around 9 and was at the Bean just about 9:30. I got in and settled and they started up. They played as a four-piece with a singer/guitar player, singer/bass player, a keyboard/trumpet player and Brian on electronic drums. The music has a nice flow and a happy feel. It seemed every time it changed, it just got nicer. Their songs are smooth and elegant, and most have long instrumental passages or are complete instrumentals. The music had enough movement to keep me interested and happy. About half way through the set a few people from the small audience got up and started dancing and the whole show had a very nice vibe. I’m very glad I went and want to check them out again sometime soon.
Up next, some large drums and larger amps were dragged in and Better Things got set up to play. Lots of people filled the small room. With two singer/guitar players, bass and drums, they launched into a melodic high speed punk rock set. The songs had an indie rock feel but were very energetic as they threw themselves at the music. I had a great time but the set was super short, and I was surprised when they said they were done. I’d been meaning to catch them for a while and they were just as good as I’d hoped.
Up next there was a slight instrument change then As We Were launched into a hardcore punk set. The singer prowled the floor as both guitar players ripped it up and the bass and drums thundered at full throttle. Their energy was through the roof and a few songs in the slam dancing began. I stayed back a bit, but still caught a couple of blows. Every song was more intense than the previous and they rocked hard until they were about to drop. What a great show everyone!!

I just got back from tonight’s local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It had a mellow yet kind of intense feel, and rocked hard in the late middle.

Song before: Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a grey day, and I’m going to start out with some mellow songs. This first singer is playing out Saturday at Nectar’s with his band Waylon Speed. Lendway are opening and it might be their last show. This is Horseshoes and Hand Grenades by Kelly Ravin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Horseshoes and Hand Grenades – Kelly Ravin
2.) Chickadee da – Ryan Ober
3.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
4.) In Waves – Sarah Blacker
5.) The Territory – Hana Zara

That’s another great song from Hana’s new album The North. That’s a brand new song from Sarah, who is from the Boston area, but plays VT on a semi-regular basis. Abbie is playing Radio Bean tonight. Ryan is too but at the same time that I’m doing this show. OK, on to the next song on the Swale album that I am working my way through, song for song, week after week.

6.) You Are Not The Photograph – Swale
7.) Right Between The Eyes – Dirtminers
8.) Ghost Train – Jerichovox
9.) Try And Try And Try – The Snaz

The Snaz just represented VT at SWSX. Jericho are playing Radio Bean next Wednesday and I really want to catch them. Cool song from the American Typewriter album. Happy Birthday Joshua Glass and Happy Birthday Ted Pappadopoulos. Thanks Ted for sending me an early mix of a new New Siberians song!!

10.) So They Say – The New Siberians
11.) Megaphone – Joshua Glass Music
12.) Weight In Gold – Joshua Panda
13.) Shiny Side Up – Nother Mother Brothers

I’m just getting to know Shiny and wanted to play it again. I should have been playing Panda’s music for a while but am glad I’m starting tonight. Great song from Josh and I can’t wait for the new Siberians after that song! Here’s another classic VT band I have not played yet.

14.) You’re The One – Viperhouse
15.) All About You – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
16.) WalkingInCircles – RAQ

That song always makes me want to bounce around. Great song by the majestic Kat and her killer band. The Viper song was from the live at Ottawa album A couple of weeks ago I saw this singer open for Hana Zara and this song really caught me.

17.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist
18.) Ball And Chain – Band X
19.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
20.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian

Killer song from Ninja’s second full album Shepherd’s Pie. Pigeon rocked our town for a couple of years and left us songs like that. Killer song from Ornan McLean‘s old band. Let’s keep rocking.

21.) Hammerhead – Barbacoa
22.) Escape Artist – Zola Turn
23.) Devastation Celebration – And The Kids
24.) Hands All Over You – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Killer song from Peg. ATK just played in Montreal so Megan could play with them. Great song from the first Zola album when Jenn Karson was still in the band. She’s still doing cool things with sound at the Fleming Museum. When Jeremy opened for Hana one of his new songs really caught me too. He sent me a copy of it today.

25.) The Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
26.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara
27.) Fubar – Kelly Ravin.

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. Last week it felt like Spring might be settling in, but this week, Winter has not given up yet. I saw Orion in the sky on the walk down. This first song is a song about the Old North End of Burlington. This is a song about this the cold. This is a song called The North by Hana Zara, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music on WBKM.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played a couple of songs to celebrate my father’s 85th birthday today, and played some fun quirky songs.

The ’80’s Ladies each picked a full album to play, to get ready for St Patrick’s Day, from 7-9, so the station played U2’s The Joshua Tree in it’s entirety followed by The Cure’s Disintegration.

Song before: The Cure – Thompson Gunner

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight, I’m going to cheat a little and begin with a non-local song. Today is my dad’s 85th birthday, so I want to start with something he will appreciate. He’s always been a great father and spent much of his life volunteering in our community. Happy Birthday Dad!

1.) What’s The Buzz-Strange Thing Mystifying – Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack
2.) Addison County Clay – Dirtminers
3.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
4.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes
5.) Sparks – The Color Exchange

Exchange are from North Carolina, but stopped by Nectar’s on Tuesday, and played a fantastic show. I was tired, but their energy was so high that I loved every note. Homes and Phil played killer sets that night too! I know my dad has spent some time struggling with Addison county clay in his lifetime, and hope he appreciated the lyrics. I’m bummed I did not make it to Radio Bean last Saturday to see these next two bands.

6.) See You At Eight – Villanelles
7.) Into The Light – Great Western
8.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox

I just got that album yesterday and really like Dreamtime. I will have to check farther into it soon. Great songs from two great bands. There’s a Villanelles related movie happening at Arts Riot Saturday, and Maryse Smith and others are playing live. OK, last week I finished playing Many Things & Many Scenes, the excellent album from Joe Adler. Tonight, let’s start a new album to play song by song, week after week, until we’ve heard it all. Let’s jump into the first song from Swale’s The Next Instead.

9.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
10.) She Brings Me – Sistas in the Pit
11.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse
12.) Tibbar Tibbar – Black Rabbit

Rabbit are making some killer new music, but I still love that older song. Great rocker from the Crazy band who are playing all over Vermont, it seems. I loved the Sistas show with Death World Wide and ROUGH FRANCIS, and just had to play that song again. Hmmm, Swale. Here’s a fun song from an album that will be released soon.

13..) Co-Pilot – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
15.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
16.) Highway Girl – The Skamaphrodites

I hadn’t played ska in a while so I had to break that one out. Classics from Pinhead and Chin Ho. This next song is just one of those songs I’ve loved for years. Thanks Caroline Marie for such a great song!

17.) Once Upon – Vedora
18.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
19.) Chop Wood-Carry Water – Zola Turn

Those were just three classic Burlington songs, though RT were in Boston when they wrote that song about Medford. OK, let’s play some songs to highlight Burlington’s quirky side.

20.) Hedgehogs – The Toes
21.) Mixtape – Shark Victim
22.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
23.) Cassette – Slingshot Dakota

Toes and Shark have some delightfully quirky music. Remember when you would use a cassette to make a mixtape for the girl you liked, to find a way to connect? I’m not sure how it works in the digital age, but it’s a powerful enough memory that SV and HP have released their newest albums on cassette. OK, at this point I’m long on songs and short on time, so let’s run to the end.

24.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
25.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
28.) In The Rain – Plan B

It’s that time of year when temperatures are rising and precipitation will now come as rain. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
