I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Despite there being great music out and about, I really wanted to spend the night fully in the studio and into the show. I guess I can’t see it all.

Song before: Starman

intro

From our small city to the great big world these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry that none of my prerecorded breaks played last week. Tonight I’m in the studio for the full two hours. Let’s finish up playing Row, the great EP from Montpelier’s Anachronist. The last two are coming and the first is He’s Still There on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) He’s Still There – Anachronist
2.) Clouds – Anachronist
3.) Unveiled – Pours
4.) Never Satisfied – THE VACANT LOTS

The Lots played a killer show at the BCA center last week. Pours did a great job opening, and I loved Unveiled when they played it live. Clouds is pretty appropriate considering the grey rainy days we’ve been having in Vermont. Sometimes you have to realize that your surroundings can influence how you think, but it’s good to know there is a lot more happening. The sky looks grey, but the stars are out behind it. Thanks to Britt Shorter for hooking me up with the Pours album and the ticket to Alpenglow at the Universalist Church last Sunday. It was a gorgeously powerful show and this song really jumped out.

5.) Brothers In Crime – Alpenglow
6.) Star – The New Siberians
7.) You Make Me See Stars – The Lonestar Chain
8.) Hollywood – Lendway

It was good to see Michael Clifford at the Alpenglow show. Matthew Bryan Hagen will be playing with The Dark Side Of The Mountain playing Pink Floyd covers at Nectar’s October 31st and November 1st. Lonestar have a show November 4th. Vote first, then go see them. Binger are playing that night too. Word has it Brendan Devitt has a ton of new Siberians songs coming soon. Here’s a song from another Burlington star, who is in California at the moment. She has a new album coming soon too.

9.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin
10.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass
11.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone

Great new song from RT! Love those guitars!! Great song from Josh! There is a series called live from the fort that some local artists are doing. I just saw a cool one from Maryse Smith where she played 3 songs and had 2 short interviews. It was pretty sweet. She played this one.

12.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
13.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
14.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara

Hana will play Radio Bean next Sunday, and always puts on a great show. Milton will play next Wednesday at the Bean and is always excellent too. Let’s pick up the pace and rock a bit.

15.) The Mime – Joe Adler
16.) Mississippi River – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers
17.) Wave – Slingshot Dakota

Slingshot are finally coming back to town on November 1st. They are playing 242 Main. Great songs by Gabby and Joe. This next band are playing November 1st at Signal Kitchen, and have a killer new video out!

18.) Popular Crowd – Swale
19.) Neighborhood – Black Rabbit
20.) Ornan’s Song – The Dirty Blondes

The Blondes have an anniversary show coming up at Club Metronome on October 31st. Black Rabbit are likely playing there right now with Dino Bravo VT. I want to be there but I want to be here with you too. Decisions. It was so fun watching Ryan Miller teach Amanda Gustafson this next song when they played the Bean a few weeks back. He’s playing the November 1st show with Swale at SK.

21.) Satellite – Guster
22.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
23.) The Tranquility Bomb – The Cush

I’m so excited to see them on November 7th at Arts Riot. Phil Yates is playing Radio Bean on November 3rd. This next song contains a bad word, so if you are really sensitive, you may want to hit mute for the next 2 minutes. It’s not meant maliciously but to drive home the anger one feels when one has parked their car and found that it has been towed. This is a classic Burlington song.

24.) Tow Truck – David L. Jarvis
25.) Contact – Phish

I love the symbiotic lyric between those two songs. 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, number 43, on internet only WBKM. I had to work all day, then got out at 7 with only a rough sketch of some of the show. I got into the studio and started to build it.

Song before: Something On – The Tragically Hip

promo ( Lendway promo)

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been on a tear lately and ended the year seeing a ton of great music. I saw Milton Busker play a beautiful set at Radio Bean on Friday. I saw a ton of bands on Saturday at The Monkey House‘s 7th birthday party, like Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT (and spaced all of the others), on Sunday I saw the last Dark Side Of The Mountain show and Matthew Bryan Hagen was great and Grace Potter sang Great Gig In The Sky and Kat Wright sang most of side two of Dark Side Of The Moon. I stayed in Monday and on Tuesday caught Hana Zara at Radio Bean then went to The Monkey Hose to see Maryse Smith, Nyko, and ended 2013 with a killer set from Vedora. Tonight I will start with a song Hana played at the Bean. It’s a very appropriate song for this time of year on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) The New One – Hana Zara
2. Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian
3.) Big Slowdown – Great Western

I’ve only caught GW a couple of times but loved then every time I did. I have to get out to see them in 2014. I’m just getting to know their new album and wanted to get that one on the air. I love Ninja and have been waiting months to play that one. Hana is super talented and her new songs are really good. I can’t wait to hear the album about Amanda in full. At her current writing pace, that should be very soon. Well, Vedora was the last band I saw in 2013, and they played a killer version of this one.

4.) Promises – Vedora
5.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
6.) Warm Chills – Persian Claws
7.) Horse – Envy

I just love that song by Envy and have been jumping around the studio like a crazy man with the volume cranked. The Claws are always fun and basically Barbaco with La Dee singing. I’ve had a great time whenever I’ve seen them. Hmmm, Vedora. OK, now it’s time for the second to last song on To A Star In The Yard.

8.) Let’s Make Mercy – Alice Austin
9.) Black Horse Acre – The Lonestar Chain
10.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
11.) Stylus Of Id – Somah

I loved seeing Somah and love the song about seeing Orion at this time of year. I love to sing I don’t mind the cold, as it’s 10 degrees below zero and snowing in Burlington. It seems like Lobot come back and play a reunion show every year. Is it time yet??? That was a great song from Lonestar. The next two bands are all about 2014. The second is someone I’m hoping will play some shows, with new songs or old, sometime this year. The first are putting the finishing touches on their new album. It will be ready soon!

12.) Home Away From Home – Elephants of Scotland
13.) Poem For Torin/Ethan’s Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

I saw Peg at the Precipice this year and hope she puts something together soon. Well, 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 local music internet radio show 29 on WBKM.ORG. It had a slow start, a loud finish, and a bit of a space theme going.

Song Before: Veteran of the Psychic Wars – Blue Oyster Cult

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I just got my hands on the new Satori Bob album. John Baumann used to play all over this town. This is what he’s up to now. This is a song called Beats Me, and this is Burlington’s kind of music on WBKM

1.) Beats Me – Satori Bob

2.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara

3.) Powder – The New Siberians

4.) Where Are You Tonight? – The Lonestar Chain

Burette Douglas is probably in Texas, but hopefully he will come back for a visit soon. It would be fun to see another Lonestar show. Powder is such a great song. Yet another great Hana song. Beats Me was familiar from the first note. What a cool song. This next song has a bit of rock, some jam, and a bit of jazz. It was recorded at Signal Kitchen.

5.) Jive – Clint Bierman and the Necessary Means

6.) Home Away From Home – Elephants of Scotland

7.) Weightless – Queen Tangerine

That’s Alice Austin and Julia Austin having fun with an outer space theme. Elephants are all about outer space. A lot of people in Burlington love the idea of being beyond this planet. Up next is a powerful Swale song and the next on their album A Small Arrival.

8.) Bittersweet – Swale

9.) We Are The Beautiful Sunsets – The Cush

10.) Gentlemen – Plan B

Wouldn’t the world be a bit nicer if we were all gentlemen? It’s surprising how little effort it takes. With the long slow Swale ending I thought Sunsets would mix nicely. It did! This weekend is the Grace Potter Grand Points North festival, but my eyes are on Radio Bean for punk night on Sunday

11.) Songs in those chords – Trapper Keeper

12.) How It Goes – Blue Button

13.) Come To Space – Rough Francis

It should be a fun night at the Bean with those three. Ha, another space song. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tim here, with another new Fish song. It’s funny when your favorite artist writes about WW I, but everything is still relevant today.

I just got back from local music radio show number 11. I still need to tighten the dialog, but I will work on it.

Song before: Beware of Darkness – George Harrison

Peg Tassey WBKM promo

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Last week I finished playing the Vedora album, this week I’m starting on New Appreciation for Sunshine by The Cush. Here is the opening song on WBKM, Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Searching for the sun – The Cush
2.) Walking in Circles – Raq
3.) Here comes the sun – Aaron Flinn

Talked about the George Harrison cover night at Radio Bean last Friday. Talked about Aaron playing a sweet solo for While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and a nice version of Beware of darkness, but blanked on mentioning any of the other wonderful performers. Said that Aaron did Here Comes The Sun Richie Havens style, and said what a wonderful performer Richie was. Said I don’t know a lot about Raq, but Mike Luoma kept saying they were good. I listened to that song, liked it, and loved the lyric about don’t fool me and get me out into the sunshine, it’s blinding me. The lyric made me want to play it out of the Cush song. Speaking of walking in circles, Waking Windows is coming to Winooski this weekend. Last weekend, I did the Harrison show and the Vedora show at Manhattan Pizza on Friday, and Max Krauss’ party on Saturday. Some great bands, like Black Rabbit, played some great music.

4.) Tubar Tubar – Black Rabbit
5.) I regret – Chin Ho!
6.) Charlie – Hover
7.) Gentleman – Plan B

Talked about seeing Plan B at Nectar’s in the ’90’s and loving the song with the blunt chorus. Talked about how Brad Searles did so much for Burlington over the years, and how he played in bands such as Hover. Great song from one of the great Burlington bands, Chin Ho! Don’t know what Tubar Tubar means, but love yelling it when seeing them live. Had to choose, since Max was having a party, and at the same time, Blue Button and Dino Bravo were playing. I had to make a choice. I saw good music, but missed good music too. Chris Farnsworth plays in Dino, so here’s him playing in Lobot

8.) An intervention of sorts – Lobot
9.) Opium spy thrill – Ninja Custodian
10.) Nowhere feels like home – Fire the Cannons
11.) Its real again – Zola Turn

Talked about Zola and how girls can rock as hard as the boys. Talked about loving Fire and how, one time, Johnny Aquadora was playing the drums so hard, and he threw a drumstick and it slid on the floor into my foot. I picked it up and still have it. It’s pretty chewed up, he hits really hard. Talked about loving Ninja and Chris’ playing. Talked about how scary it is when someone gets lost and how wonderful when they get found. Talked about how Mother’s day coming up. Said Happy Mother’s Day to my mom.

12.) Mother’s OK – Split Tongue Crow
13.) Where are you tonight? – Lonestar Chain

Talked about the sheet talent in Lonestar, Dedicated the STC song to anyone who has ever got the news that their Mother’s OK. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week. Shall we?
