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

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.

Song after: What Color Is God? – Fish

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Black Rabbit released a great new EP on Saturday and I featured a few songs. I used that to create a set of really rocking music!

Song before: Prisoners Of Rock And Roll – Neil Young And Crazy Horse

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve got some great new music to play tonight but I want to start with a song I heard at Signal Kitchen a couple of weeks ago, that I keep listening to again and again. This is The Globe by Landlady on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) The Globe – Landlady
2.) Blue Light Shines – The Dwellers
3.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy

Great song from Brad Searles and friends. I love the dwellers song and Gabrielle Douglas‘ voice. There is a new The Cush streaming, but I don’t have a copy to play yet. I will, the moment I do. I love the Globe. On Saturday Black Rabbit released a killer 6 song EP. This one rocks!

4.) Tarpaulin – Black Rabbit
5.) You Want It All – When Particles Collide
6.) The New Super Heroes – Lindy Pear
7.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids

Last Friday, I went to The Monkey House to see Phil Yates and the Affiliates, and The Mountain Says No. The show was over early enough to run to Radio Bean and catch And The Kids. They played a great show and that song jumped out at me. Thanks to Joe Adler for organizing the Burlington-North Hampton band exchange. Lindy used to always be the second band on at the Radio Bean Birthday party, and always rocked! Great song from road warriors When Particles Collide. Songs like Tarpaulin keep me going to see Black Rabbit again and again. Well, last week I played the last song on Dancing With The Big Guy. It’s time to start playing a new album all the way through, song by song, week after week. This is another classic Burlington album. This is the first song from Ninja Jane.

8.) Ninja Jane – Zola Turn
9.) Throw Me Away – Spill
10.) Null – Five Seconds Expired
11.) Carnage – Black Rabbit

Another great song that I’ve loved for a while, that is now recorded. Yea. Killer song from FSE, one of the heavy rock bands from the ’90’s. Same with the Spill song. Zola were always there rocking , when I needed a band. It will be fun to play the full album all the way through. I think this next song is misnamed and is really a cover.

12.) Violence – Peg Tassey and Proud Of It
13.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
14.) The Invisibles – Black Rabbit.

Great song from Rabbit. Great Mission Of Burma cover by Ninja, and I think the Peg Tassey MUSIC song was really Is It My Body by Alice Cooper. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got home from my local music radio show on WBKM.ORG. I played a few new songs, including a song that is quickly becoming a favorite, and some classics. I played some future classics too.

Song before: Never Trust A Stranger – Michael Schenker Group / Temple Of Rock

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. On Tuesday, I went to Signal Kitchen to see The Mountain Says No, and ended up loving the other two bands, too. This is the band who played in the middle and is the song they closed with. This is Above My Ground by Landlady on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Above My Ground – Landlady
2.) Young Vultures – Saint Rich
3.) Statistic – The Mountain Says No

I love that song and can’t wait for a full sounding version of it. They were great at Signal Kitchen and will be at The Monkey House tomorrow. Vultures is the first song that caught me on the St Rich album. I loved their show. It’s summer in Vermont and twilight at quarter after 9. It’s warm and time to head to the beach.

4.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
5.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
6.) Window’s Down – Lendway
7.) Wiser – And The Kids

I finally bought the ATK ep and Wiser jumped out. On the way down I listened to a bit of a song from a band at Red Square, I think, called 6:19. It looked like Jeremy Gartner from Wave with Matthew Bryan Hagen and Kevin Lynam from Lendway, plus keyboard, and violin. It sounded a bit like if Lendway played a Small Town Movie bluesy The Cush sort of song. Lendway are so cool, and Wave so bouncy and fun. Beach features Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall. Up next, it’s time to finish off Dancing With The Big Guy. This is a rocker!

8.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
9.) Scorned Woman – The Dirty Blondes
10.) Decide – David L. Jarvis

Great rocker from Dave. The Blondes always rock! What a great way to end the album, with the Ninja chant. I think Phil Yates and the Affiliates are playing at the Monkey House tomorrow

11.) Honeycomb – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
12.) Jan Michael Vincent – Chin Ho!
13.) The Globe – Landlady

That song caught me when I saw them and I like it more and more every time I hear it. That was a classic from Chin Ho! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
