Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm June 15th and can be heard on 107.1FM or from the Facebook page of WBKM and will go as follows,

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.) Via Champlain – Some Hollow
2.) High Flying Bird – Anders Parker
3.) Dance Of The World – Satori Bob

9.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged
10.) Jungle Rot – The Edd
11.) Alan’s Garden – Ruckzuck

That was a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. Nice song about VT from Portrait. Binger are so wonderful, even if Facebook will not let me tag them.

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for being such a great rock club and for sponsoring our station. Let’s begin with one of those great Burlington songs that gets performed now and then.

1.) Once Upon – Vedora
2.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton
3.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
4.) Bury Me – Forest Gray

Forest has so many fun songs. I wanted to play a song about flowers since we got a nice snowstorm this morning. Thanks Cricket. Great song from Peter. That was recorded live by Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio a couple of weeks ago. Last week I went back to the studio with Jeremy Gilchrist for the second part in the ongoing series. Here is the interview and the three songs he played.

5.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist

Thanks to Ryan and Jeremy for making that happen. It will be fun to bring in bands to play live, now and then. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week. We are currently traveling though By My Side and here comes the rock song.

8.) The Light – Kat Wright
9.) A Question Mark To Answer – Seth Yacovone Band

13.) ME 262 – The Contrarian
14.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
15.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

That’s the title song from the brand new EP by Clever Girls. I really need to get out and see them soon. Great song from Mountain. Great cover from Casey Merlin Rae. If you want to hear surf music on a winter day, head to Foam tomorrow. It’s late, so let’s play some sleepy time music.

16.) Sleepwalker – 1881
17.) The Call – Swillbillie
18.) Windigo – Crazyhearse
19.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

Blondes, Hearse, and Billie will play at The Monkey House on Saturday night so that should be fun. Great song from 1881. Last week I played one of the new songs from Slingshot Dakota. Here is the other.

20.) Grudge – Slingshot Dakota
21.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
22.) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain

25.) The Crisis – Ninja Custodian
26.) Hold me Tight – The Decentz
27.) Willow I – Tyler Daniel Bean
28.) Willow II – Tyler Daniel Bean

The video for Willow II is really cool. Decentz played in the ’80’s, the Ninja song was from the ’90’s and the Phil song is a couple of years old. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Winter – Tori Amos

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was in the 70’s over the weekend and today it’s cold and snowy. Welcome to Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a lovely singer songwriter who graces our state.

1.) Can You Love Me Too? – Bethany Conner Music
2.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
3.) When The Night’s Get Long – Carraway
4.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

I just love that Siberians song. As February ends the nights just seem to stay long so I thought those songs would sound like Burlington. Andriana is playing at Red Square on Saturday at 5pm if you are looking for cool music. Great song from Bethany. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

5.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright
6.) What If? – Madaila

8.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

What a lovely piece of rocking dramatic music from Cricket. I just love the drama that Rue add to the music. If you like Madaila, you may want to head to Club Metronome tomorrow night. I think you will like the band they have playing. Great song from Kat and the band. OK, on Saturday this next artist is finally coming back to town. I’ve seen him a dozen times (or so) at Metronome over the years, though not for a long time. The first time I saw him play was back at Hunts with his band The Bears. I’m very excited for his show Saturday night at ArtsRiot. It’s sold out, so I hope you have a ticket.

9.) Young Lions – Adrian Belew
10.) Ampersand – Adrian Belew
11.) Newrotica – Adrian Belew

13.) Eggshell – The Mountain Says No
14.) Winter – Dave Jarvis
15.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck – Chin Ho

Happy Birthday Andrew X Smith and thanks for all the great music over the years. It’s finally cold enough to play the Dave song. Hmmm, Mountain, hmmmm. So, I just got a couple of new songs from a great band who play Burlington once or twice a year. Here’s one of them.

16.) Dying Stars – Slingshot Dakota
17.) I Didn’t Know I Was A Wizard – Colin Nicholas Clary
18.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
19.) The Whiskey Always Wins – When Particles Collide

Particles played a great show at Manhattan Pizza a few weeks ago. Hopefully they will be back soon. Hearse are just a great band. Cool song from Colin. Great new song from Slingshot! OK, this next band features a local guitar player who has been in a couple of bands and takes lots of great concert photos. Some of them are hanging in The Mule Bar in Winooski and they are doing a show opening tonight. Luke Awtry Photography has been done a great job documenting the local scene in pictures. Let’s play one of Luke Adam‘s songs from one of my favorite bands.

20.) Linea – Vetica
21.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
22.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker

26.) Finder – Madelines
27.) It’s Cold – Black Rabbit

Great rocker from Casey Merlin Rae. It’s finally cold enough to play the Rabbit song. Madelines rocked us in the ’90’s. Doubtfire and Grand are rocking us today. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

Epitaph (Including March For No Reason/Tomorrow And Tomorrow) – King Crimson

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I got out of work a couple of nights ago and looked up and saw Orion. It’s the sign that winter is here and it always reminds me of this song.

1.) Stylus of Id – Somah
2.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
3.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
4.) East Jabip – REDadmiral

With politics on so many people’s minds lately, Jabip seemed appropriate. It’s the season to rush around like crazy and sometimes it seems like it’s a countdown to meltdown. Thanks for explaining that feeling so well Black Rabbit. The days are getting shorter and shorter so the Carraway song is sounding perfect. Since they first played it back in the ’90’s that song by the short lived Somah always comes to mind at this time of year. OK, let’s play the next song on Seth Yacovone‘s new album Shovel Down.

5.) Caveman Guerrilla – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) A Company Man – Carraway
7.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
8.) Summer Falls – Lendway

I miss Lendway. Such a great song. Great song from Lobot that I love to pull out now and then. Zeus Springsteen sometimes play that one. More on that later. Another great new song from Carraway. Such a fun new song from Seth and the band. OK, let’s play some more super new music.

9.) I’m All Right You Say – Anachronist
10.) Nightingale – 1881
11.) It’ll Be Okay – Let’s Whisper
12.) Sri Lanka – Ellen Degenerates

Ellen will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. Great song from the Smittens offshoot. Great new song from 1881. Same for Anachronist. I felt terrible upon hearing of the death of Eric Olsen‘s father. I don’t know what to do or say, so I will just try and tell you all how amazing Eric is. It’s the only way I can think of to honor Eric’s father. Here is a small sampling of what Eric has helped create to fill our ears and hearts.

13.) Good Medicine – SWALE
14.) Armadillo – Swale
15.) Faineant – Swale
16.) You Are Not The Photograph – Swale
17.) Hit – Blue Button

Eric also plays with James Kochalka and Let Loco and likely others. I think Swale have a new album coming soon and are recording a video on Saturday. It’s too bad that I’m working. Those are all such great songs. OK, let’s keep rocking.

18.) The Meanest Song I’ll Ever Write – Milton Busker
19.) American Proxy – The Hero Cycle
20.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
21.) Black Blue and White – The New Siberians

I just love the new Siberians album. Great song by Telephone. If you like that song and are in town, check out The Nancy Druids sometime. Hero played around for a year or so in the 2000’s and I love their songs. Great song from Milton. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
23.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
24.) U Can Love If U Want To – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Great classic from Peg. That’s a brand new song from the mighty Zeus. I’ve seen them a couple of times and love them. I’m so psyched to get more of their music and hopefully see them again soon. Great classic from Dirtminers. OK, there’s not much time left so let’s go out with a nautical theme.

25.) The River – Kat Wright
26.) The Anchor – Carraway
27.) Basalt Anchor – Vedora
28.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM went as follows:

recording begins
Song before: Alone – Children in Paradise

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring us here at the station. They have Smooth Antics playing tomorrow if you want to check that show out. There has been a lot of music about lately so let’s begin with a guy who played a solo show last Sunday at Radio Bean.

1.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
3.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
4.) The Last Of The Unplucked Gems (live) – The Tragically Hip

I saw music Saturday night and Sunday night so it was not until Monday that I watched the full last concert from The Hip. It was powerful and poignant. The have played in town many times and have played all over Vermont. All of their shows were great and they put a ton of beautiful music into our world. I cannot thank them enough. That new song from the Siberians has been stuck in my head since the album came out. I see no signs of it stopping soon. Great song from the Burette Douglas solo band. I love that Phil song and it was cool to see the stripped down show on Sunday. OK, here is the next and last song from Giant Places. It’s been so warm and sunny and everyone is driving around with the windows down.

5.) Windows Down – Lendway
6.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
7.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
8.) Love, Like Language – Happy Abandon

Happy played a stunningly great show at Foam Brewers last Friday. Homes followed and put on a great show too. Milton has a brilliant new album and is playing next Thursday at the Fairgrounds (???). OK, let’s rock. Better Things just released a new album called Getting Worse. This is the fist song.

9.) Getting Laid In New Hampshire – Better Things
10.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
11.) Lunacy – Cave Bees
12.) Ex-Files – Better Things

I’m psyched to check out Better Things on Saturday at 242 Main. I just checked out their new album and it’s really cool!! Bees played a stinging show at The Monkey House last Saturday. They were joined by Black Rabbit and Zeus Springsteen. Rabbit closed with that rocking song. Hmmm, Better Things. This next band are playing Saturday at the Enosburg Opera House.

13.) StatistiK – The Mountain Says No
14.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
15.) U Thought U Ne Funk (intro) – DJ A-Dog
16.) Unveiled – Pours

I wanted to play the Pours song song for two reasons. One: It’s quite good and I like it. The second is that their drummer Chris Shar has had physical issues for years, and drummed his heart out for us for years anyway. He just started a Go Fund Me campaign to get a mobility device so he can get out and about more easily. He’s given a lot to us. It’s time for us to give back, if we can. DJ A-Dog passed away a few years ago but put a stamp on this town, and now there is a giant party every year for him. This happens all around town on Saturday. Tons of DJ’s and MC’s will play but a few bands, like Rough Francis, will play too. Forest Gray will play and this next band will play too.

17.) Colorful Girls – Dwight & Nicole
18.) Paint With The Sun – Arc Iris
19.) Scared – The Tragically Hip
20.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara

Hana move to Nebraska a while ago but is back in town tonight to enchant us with her beautiful music. I love that Hip song and and they did a great version of it at the last show on Saturday. Arc just released a new album full of songs they keep playing in Burlington. OK, let’s celebrate the return of Hana with a set of her songs.

21.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara
22.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
23.) Meghan’s Song – Hana Zara.

I love her music and her imagery and the way she lets her songs unfold around us. OK, time for a couple more. Let’s go out in style.

24.) Grace Too (live) – The Tragically Hip
25.) New Orleans is Sinking (live) The Tragically Hip

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Where In The World – Fish

into

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It hit 96 degrees today and it’s a scorching night in the Queen City. Music is all around. Last night I got to see Swale play a great set in a classic Vermont setting. They played a bunch of great songs at Shelburne Farms including this one. They just made a devastatingly beautiful and horrible video for this cover song. This is a song to help remind us that the color of your skin and the shape of your face and body mean nothing. You are what you say and what you do and what you tolerate and what you don’t.

1.) Black Boys On Mopeds – SWALE
2.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik
3.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
4.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

What a great new song from the Siberians. I’ve got a couple more songs from it lined up later. Jeremy Gilchrist is playing Radio Bean tomorrow at 7 so I may catch a song or two at the end of his set if I’m out of work on time. Anna is playing at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow too which is cool. Swale were amazing and played an amazing version of that song yesterday. As always, I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. They have Upmhrey’s McGee in town tonight and Strangefolk in Jay this weekend. The Girls Rock VT August Showcase is happening Saturday if you want a glimpse of the future rock scene. OK, here is he next song from Giant Places.

5.) Take Your Gold Away – Lendway
6.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
7.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
8.) Make It Work – The New Siberians

Another great new song from Siberians new album Black, Blue and White. Aaron writes and sings such great songs. I love the new Milton album and that song has some intense energy. Hmmm, Lendway. It’s hot and there is no breeze and it’s summer in Vermont. Let’s celebrate it.

9.) Summertime – Peg Tassey MUSIC
10.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
12.) Breaking Camp – The New Siberians

Yup, the Siberians have a dancey pop song on the new album too. Such a fun song from Madaila who are going to take over downtown for a day sometime soon. It is summer and beach weather!!!! Even at night!! OK, let’s go back to the late ;80;s or early ’90’s for a classic song about a girl.

13.) Mary – Plan B
14.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
15.) Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
16.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Yup, the Siberians have a psychedelic/prog rock song on the new album. Great instrumental from the ’90’s prog rock band. That is a song from Elephants new album. I love Plan B. OK, let’s head to the indie zone.

17.) Life Of The Party – My first Days On Junk
18.) Hindsight 20/20 – Better Things
19.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
20.) Tenderness – The New Siberians

That one almost has a bit of a Ninja vibe. The New Siberians are made of Simon Plumpton on drums, who also plays with Invisible Homes, Ted Pappadopoulos on bass and vocals and assorted instruments, and Brendan Devitt on guitar and vocals. There are so many good songs on this new album of theirs. Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and rocked hard. Better are about to release a new album and 20/20 will be one of the songs. Junk are a band with Urian Hackney and played Waking Windows last spring. OK, let’s play another song from that late ’80’s early ’90’s period.

21.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
22.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
23.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
24.) Black, Blue And White – The New Siberians

That one from the Siberians has more of a classic rock sound so I thought it would sound good with the Speed song. Francis should have a new album out soon and I can’t wait. Great rocker from Pinhead. I got to see Caroline Marie play songs from her upcoming solo album last week, so let’s play one from her last album.

25.) The Feeling – Vedora
26.) Sweet Dreams – Bethany Conner Music
27.) Black 17 – The New Siberians

Great rocker from the Siberians. I love that beautiful song from Bethany. Hmmm, Vedora. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
