From our small city to the great big world,, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s almost Christmas, and I have a lot of appropriate songs on the way tonight, but let’s begin with the next song on the Grim Work album.

1.) Lost Cause – Milton Busker and the Grim Work
2.) Christmastime Blues – Jason Baker
3.) O Come O Come Emmanuel – Cricket Blue
4.) Hallelujah – SWALE

Let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live performance.

15.) Happy X-Mas (War Is Over) – Josh Glass

I had a great time seeing music a week ago on Main St and at Nectar’s. Madaila threw a giant party and shut down Main St and put up a stage and somehow booked it on a lovely sunny rain free Saturday. I was able to make it downtown by 4 and had never caught up with Caroline Rose so I was excited to hear her play. I got in and settled and She began singing and playing guitar and was joined by a drummer and two keyboard players, one of whom was Abbie Gail from Hammydown. Most of the songs had a dancey rock feel and may have fit in well on the soundtrack to Kill Bill. I let the first couple of songs wash over me as the keyboard players picked up bass and guitar for the second one. The bass played mostly stayed on bass but Abbie switched between guitar and keys all through the show. I think Caroline’s whole set was made of new songs and was different from what I was expecting and sounded wonderful. She sang songs about more of the same thing living in America. She said most of her songs were sad songs with happy melodies except for the fourth one which was a happy song about being cat called. She sang a song about the waitress setting the table. She sang about Jean becoming a mom and it was her favorite song to sing. She followed with her real favorite song to sing which was something about putting on his bikini and dancing dancing dancing. She continued playing her favorite songs to sing during the greatest hits section of the show from the album that has not been released yet. One had a Bossa Nova beat and one was about how everybody knows there ain’t nothing you can do about it. She sang about doing it for the money and played a slow rocker about having had enough. She was going to leave but an encore was demanded and she played a fast rocker about going deep deep down. It was a great show and I’m so glad I went.

I had to meet up with Christopher Larrow who was coming over from New York for the later show but hung around for a couple of songs by Turkuaz. They had a big band heavy disco punk sound with dreamy keys. The first song may have been something like turn you and the second was about circles in my mind. They weren’t quite my cup of tea but they were really good and lit up the audience.

I walked home, met up with Chris and hung out for a bit, then we headed to Nectar’s for the after party. SWALE began the night with a nice groove on All Down Tonight and rocked it hard by the end. They kept at full throttle for Popular Crowd then encouraged us to Release Our Records. I missed the title of the next one but loved it completely. They eased up a little for Beaten Down and built the energy back up with a searing Soul Piggy Bank. Drug Laws laid into a heavy groove and rocked the house hard. Elevator was poppy but so strong that it worked perfectly. Felon was lovely and powerful. They began the slow build and heavily rocked out Every Last One Of Us and kept rocking on Everyone Likes To. They closed with the fantastic If You Get Lost and everyone was in a happy place.

Up next New York band Wild Adriatic took the stage for a Zeppelin set. They opened with a bluesy jam that settled into Good Times Band Times. They let it flow into Communication Breakdown then let that flow into Immigration Song. Their playing and singing was sweet but when they brought up Nicole from Nico Suave she elevated Black Dog to a magnificent place. She left and the band rocked out Trampled Under Foot. They both eased up and rocked harder on No Quarter. The Ocean had that fun bounce and they mixed it into a snippet of Moby Dick. The drum solo was quite short then they jammed out a little more Moby. Heartbreaker rocked hard then they kept the crowd fired up with Ramble On. In the middle of the song Mikey from Turkuaz moved in and took over the drums without either drummer missing a beat in the transition. They said they were going to do something odd and played a bluesy song about 40 days and 40 nights and put a full War Pigs in the middle. What a night.

Chris took off at that point, and I was pretty tired too but there was no way I could miss the next band. ROUGH FRANCIS hit the stage hard with a couple of their newer songs that I’m getting to know and completely love. MSP2 was great and rocked hard as did the next new one. I-90 East is a classic and is super strong. They sang a song about getting it together and coming together and telling your sister and telling your brother. They encouraged us to not look back then played a heavy version of Staring Out The Window. They sang about getting out and at some point Paul threw himself off the stage and rocked hard in the audience. They played a slower song about fascists who think their haircuts make them cute and how we should walk on by. Not A Nice Guy was blisteringly fast and hard and they played the song about every day. They wrapped the 16 song set with an over the top Comm To Space and finished up at 1:48 am.

I hung out for a bit then took the long tired and lovely walk home.

Thanks for the pics Luke Awtry Photography

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday September 7th. It can be streamed from the Facebook page link above or at WBKM.ORG and will go as follows,

Song before: Immigrant Song – Led Zeppelin

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. There was lots of great music in town last week and a staggering amount this week. Let’s begin with a band who blew me away the one time I saw them. They are in town tonight at ArtsRiot.

1.) The World Is A Loud Place – Landlady
2.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Jessie – The Parts
4.) Hurricane – Landlady

I saw Landlady at Signal Kitchen once and was amazed. I’m psyched they are back in town tonight. This weekend is Art Hop in the South End. There are lots of bands playing and there is one amazing show in an alley by the Green Door which is behind ArtsRiot to the right and not far from Howard St. The Parts are one of the many bands playing there. That’s a brand new song from Phil Yates‘ upcoming album. Yea, Landlady. OK, let’s play the next song from Loose Tooth.

5.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
7.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
8.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen

Zeus will be at the Green Door show as will Rabbit and Dino. Great song from Clever. This next band will be at a couple of shows at Art Hop including one at Friends of Jim’s Basement.

9.) 25 Miles Per Hour Blues – Better Things
10.) Voodoo Wave – The High Breaks
11.) America Religious – Caroline Rose
12.) Secret – Madaila

Madaila put on a great show on Saturday when they took over Main St and put up a stage. I caught Caroline’s set at that show and was very impressed. The Breaks are playing Friday at ArtsRiot for the venue’s 4th birthday party with some other bands. This next band are playing Friday by the Green Door too.

13.) Better Than You Think – Eastern Mountain Time
14.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
15.) Vermonter – James Kochalka
16.) Cocktail Hour – David L Jarvis

Dave used to play around in the ’90’s and is back in town. He’s working on a new baroque pop band called The New Victorians so it will be cool to see what that sounds like. I think they will play that classic song. Great song from James about what it’s like to be in Vermont and to not be in Vermont. Francesca will be at Hotel Vt this Friday. This next band played the after Madaila show at Nectar’s last Saturday.

17.) All Down Tonight – SWALE
18.) Staring Our The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
19.) Not In My Name – Dysfunkshun
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

The Blondes, and a couple of other bands, will be at the Dysfunkshun reunion show at Higher Ground on Saturday. Francis and Swale put on amazing shows at Nectar’s last Saturday. OK, here’s a classic Burlington rocker.

21.) Bloodboy – Envy
22.) Nightmare On Elm Street – Savage Hen
23.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
24.) I Know, Right – The Mountain Says No

I haven’t caught up with Mountain in a while but love it when I do. Great rocker from Seth and the band. It was fun watching Hen put the Nightmare jump rope theme into song form at the Robot Dog Studio session last week. Classic from Envy. OK, there’s not much time left. Let’s end where we began.

25.) The Globe – Landlady
26.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
27.) In The Rain – Plan B
28.) Above My Ground – Landlady

I love how hard that song rocks at the end. Classic from B and quite appropriate with all the rain we’ve had lately. Great song from Whisper and another great one from Landlady. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
