Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will stream at WBKM.ORG and (FB) on Thursday July 13th from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: Do It Again – The Kinks

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  Last Friday Swale finally released their new album There’s No One Here.  It’s a double album with red vinyl and lots of amazing artwork.  There are a ton of fantastic songs on the album  Let’s begin tonight with what is almost the title song.

1.) Loser – Swale

2.) High Flying Bird – Anders Parker

3.) One From Two – Linda Bassick

4.) Lowdown – Vedora

Vedora rocked our town for a couple of years and Caroline is still out there making similar sounding music.  Great song from Linda.  Cool song from Anders album The Man Who Fell From Earth.  That’s such a fun and sad song from Swale.  They excel at that, as you will hear throughout the course of the evening.  OK, here is the next song on Action, the EP I am playing all the way through song after song week after week.  It’s the third EP in their “album” Lights, Camera, Action.

5.) Mass Murderer – 1881

6.) Cereal – Carraway

7.) Bird In A Cage – Swale

8.) The Nighthorses – The Cush

When listening to the new Swale album something about Bird reminded me of the Cush song so I thought it would be fun to play them back to back.  That’s an interesting way to spell the Carraway song.  Great stuff from 1881.  This next band are playing at Sidebar tonight.

9.) Taung Child Mastered – The Dead Shakers

10.) Spastic Tactics – The Edd

11.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants Of Scotland

12.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Great song from Siberians Black Blue and White album.  Great song from Elephants.  Nice trippy song from the Edd who will play a show for us in a few weeks.  I loved the Shakers the one time I saw them.  Last night I went to Nectar’s and saw these two bands, and need to get some music from the other one who played.

13.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

14.) Megaphone – Josh Glass

15.) Silver Dollars – Banana Schlitz

16.) Felon – Swale

Another great new Swale song that they have been playing at shows for a while now and I finally get to play it for you.  Banana will be at the Flynn Exposure series tomorrow at 5 or so.  Josh and Andriana were amazing last night.  Mal Maiz and Haley Jane were lots of fun too.  We are in the middle of summer and this song is so appropriate.

17.) Endless Sunkissed Lover – Gneiss

18.) Break A Leg – David Rosane And The Zookeepers

19.) Elevator – Swale

20.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

I love how positive and fun that song is.  Super poppy song from Swale about a frightening event.  David and the band will be at American Flatbread next Wednesday.  Gneiss are at Red Square next Thursday.  Here is another song I have heard for a while around town that I now get to share with you.

21.) All Down Tonight – Swale

22.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

23.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls

24.) Control – Ratboys

Ratboys are from Chicago and came and played a show on Saturday at Sidebar with Clever Girls.  Both bands were great.  Joe and his band played a great version of that one a week ago in Winooski.  Great song from Swale.  This next singer is performing tonight for the first time in ages and I could not be more excited!

25.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey

26.) 25 Mile Per Hour Blues – Better Things

27.) 22R – Cave Bees

28.) Drug Laws – Swale

I love how hard that song rocks continuously.  Bees and Things will be at the Monkey House on Saturday.  I love Peg.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: I Don’t Remember – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week of warm and hot sunny days so let’s head to the beach.

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
2.) A Walk On Ballard Beach – The High Breaks
3.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
4.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
5.) Lovely Day – gneiss

It’s been so nice to have so many lovely days lately. Gneiss are at Red Square tonight. There has been lots of blue sky lately and Rabbit sing such a cool song about it. They played a great show last Friday at The Monkey House. I remember seeing Blotto a couple of times at Hunts a long time ago. Great song from the Breaks. Now that Phil has taken the Affiliates joke to Chicago, it’s time for us to embrace the Ray Fork joke. OK, let’s play the next song on Camera.

6.) Shortcuts – 1881
7.) Miranda – Ninja Custodian
8.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
9.) Windows down – Lendway

It’s the perfect time to drive around with the windows down, perhaps in a magical camero. Classic song from Ninja. I’m working my way through the set of EP’s from 1881 called Lights, Camera, and Action song by song, week by week. OK, last Saturday I joined the Friends of Jim’s Basement and saw these next four bands.

10.) Winnebago – Ellen Degenerates
11.) Goner – REDadmiral
12.) Shark – Greaseface
13.) Fruity Pebbles (Legend Of The Samurai) – Shred Flintstone
14.) Cross Country – Steven Wright

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at WBKM and for bringing Mr Wright to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts tomorrow, and for all of the other great music they bring to our community all the time. Great song from the New Jersey band with such a great name. Flintstone rocked hard in Jim’s basement last week. Greaseface also put on a brilliant show that night. Admiral have stripped down to more of a acoustic band and were cool last Saturday too. Ellen closed that show nicely. OK, let’s play another Burlington classic.

15.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
16.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
17.) Heartbreak Baby – Villanelles
18.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

Great song from Vetica. Heartbreak rocks hard. Same for Zola. Such a fun song from Zoot. OK, let’s go out for a ride.

19.) Freeway – Totally Submerged
20.) The Mime – Joe Adler
21.) I Am A Hatchet – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
22.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Such a great song from David. It’s sad to see Phil Yates move to Chicago but at least he and the band played a blistering show at the Monkey House last Friday. I’m sure we will see him again. Joe’s been playing around lately in his new band a.m. rejoice which I seem to keep missing. It’s hard to miss Submerged since they play all around Vermont all the time. OK, let’s keep up the theme with a song about the ocean.

23.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
24.) Sober – Vedora
25.) In The Rain – Plan B

Plan are a classic Burlington band from the ’80’s. I love how huge that song is. I always loved it when Vedora played Sober and Matt went way off on guitar. Hmmm, song about the ocean. Hmmmm. OK, there’s not much time left so let’s keep rocking.

26.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
27.) Something I Drew – farm
28.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rocker from Seth Yacovone and the guys. Classic song from Farm who played in the 2000’s. Great rocker from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

1.) Walkabout – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association

6.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids

10.) I Will – Camp Howard
11.) The Field – The Dead Shakers

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.

28.) Once Upon – Vedora

Classic song from Caroline Marie. Her band Steady Betty is playing around town for Jazzfest.

Tonight is the 200th show that I’ve done on WBKM and it’s been a joy bringing you some of Burlington’s best music over the past 4 years. Tonight, I will pull out a whole bunch of classic songs.

Andriana Chobot Trio at Light Club Lamp Shop and Joe Adler at Radio Bean March 17, 2017   Leave a comment

Andriana Chobot Trio pic by Tim Lewis

 

I had a great time seeing music last night at Light Club Lamp Shop. The show was set to go from 7-8:45. I worked until 7, raced home, did a real quick turn around and walked to the club, arriving just before 7:30. Andriana Chobot was on stage singing and playing keys as I settled in. She was joined by Julian Chobot on bass and Cody Sargent on drums so they had a nice full sound. Julian is super steady on bass with some cool running around the fretboard. Cody plays with subtlety and grace and is always where he needs to be to enhance the song. Andriana has a strong voice that is equally as powerful when she is whispering or belting it out. Her keyboard has an almost orchestral piano sound. They played a bunch of her songs, some that I knew, some that I did not and a couple that I am getting to know. I only caught a bit of the song they were playing as I got settled then they went into a bass and drum groove as she sang Come Together. She added some keys to the instrumental section, late in the song, then went back to just singing to close out the classic Beatles song. I joyfully let the next four songs wash over me and fill me, then they pulled out the magnificent Cascade. It’s from her first EP and is just wonderful. They ended the first set with a powerful cover of Ain’t No Sunshine and her singing was epic.

Joe Adler with Chris and Tucker pic by Tim Lewis

I took advantage of the break to head over to Radio Bean to see a few songs by Joe Adler and Tucker Hansen. Joe sang and played the card deck guitar while tucker played the violin. They were joined by Chris on trumpet and he played a nice solo just after I arrived. They pulled out the Nathan Moore song about wondering how you would know if you are an asshole. The catchy chorus is fun and easy to song. They followed with Dylan’s One More Cup Of Coffee then I hit the road back to the lamp shop The band was not on yet so I made the reverse trip and listened to the song on bended knee before heading out for good.

When I arrived back at the Lamp Shop they were playing a gorgeous version of Alone In The Night, another epic song from her first EP. I wish I had arrived sooner but caught most of it. From there, Andriana and the band played a bunch of fantastic songs that made me just want to listen and hear them and to barely think of anything and just exist in the moment. They played eight wonderful songs and wrapped the night with one of the songs that I’m getting to know. It’s called Neon and is really cool.

I hung out for a little bit, chatted about how nice the sound is at the Lamp Shop, and said a quick goodbye. The walk home through the winter wonderland was lovely and quick.
