Song before: Take The Skinheads Bowling – Camper Van Beethoven

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 out station. They have a ton of great music happening this week. Tonight I will feature just a few of the wonderful bands we have in Vermont but play a set of music for each, so you get a good sense of who they are. It will go as follows.

1.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
2.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
3.) The Sea (Zach’s Song) – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca plays around town and around the country and around the world. Definitely check her out when you get a chance. OK, here is the next song on By My Side.

4.) Marvelous – Kat Wright Official
5.) Dear God – Kat Wright
6.) The River – Kat Wright

Kat and the band are playing great shows all around the northeast. You will be happy if you go see them. OK, this next band played at Nectar’s last night. Here is them life at Nectar’s from a couple of years ago.

7.) Totalitarian Democracy – ONEoverZero
8.) Be Free – ONEoverZero
9.) We Do Not Agree – ONEoverZero

Their jam/reggae sound is what Burlington sounds like on a regular basis. OK, it was a warm day today but if you go out for a walk this evening, well you won’t need a winter coat, but will need an overcoat. This next band played a lovely show on Saturday night.

10.) Overcoat – SWALE
11.) Edible #2 – Swale
12.) If You Get Lost – Swale

That is such a lovely song and Swale are doing great things these days. This next band played after Swale on Saturday.

13.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles
14.) Parking Lot – Villanelles
15.) Gray Goo – Villanelles

It was great to Villanelles play two nights in a row. They played all three of those both Saturday and Friday. On Friday the played with this band who played all three of these songs.

16.) Little Song – Invisible Homes
17.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
18.) This Machine – Invisible Homes

This machine kills fascists with ideas not weapons. Great stuff from Homes. They are playing tonight at SideBar with this next band. They also played the show last Friday.

19.) You Say You’re Alive – The Mountain Says No
20.) The Mountain – The Mountain Says No
21.) I Know Right – The Mountain Says No

Mountain are playing powerful music and brilliant shows and it’s always great to see them live. OK, let’s go back to the ’90’s for an artist who always put on a tremendous show.

22.) Poem For Torin/Ethan’s Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC
23.) The Naked Garden – Peg Tassey
24.) I Remain/The Jam – Peg Tassey

Peg is a treasure and is cooking up some great music for us right now. Hopefully, the album she is producing for Miriam Bernardo will be out soon. OK, for tonight’s last set it won’t just be one band but they are all very related. Here is a song from Adam Rabin‘s solo project.

25.) The Other Room – Mailbox
26.) Found In A Field – Neb Crabula
27.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants are a cool local prog band, despite the name, they really are from Vermont. Greg Skillman writes some of the lyrics and formed a band with Adam called Neb Crabula. We started with Adam covering an Elephants song. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a drizzly rainy night in Burlington and oddly warm for this late in November. Tonight I want to start with the second band I ever saw live. They opened for the Ramones at the Flynn Theater. My friend Christopher Larrow just got a turntable that can rip mp3’s so now I have a copy of this album to play. This is one of those songs that just randomly pops into my head now and then. I hope you enjoy!

1.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
2.) You Don’t Like Me, Do Ya? – Pinhead
3.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
4.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band

Big Joe passed away a few years back, and has a wonderful statue on Church st, but the band are around and playing tonight at Nectar’s to help celebrate the clubs 40th birthday. A lot of great music has been played in that room. OK, it’s time to play the last song on No Need To Beg. I hope you have enjoyed listening to all of those songs as much as I have.

5.) Insomnia – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) I Feel So Dumb – The Decentz
7.) Medula Momblongata – Strung Out
8.) Say It – Anachronist

Great song from the Central Vermont band. Everyone loved to go see Emily play whenever Strung Out performed. Another classic from Decentz. Another great song from Phil Yates. I will be off next week, since it’s Thanksgiving, but the week after I will have to find a new album to play all the way through. This next set should be fun. It’s about girls clubs and boys clubs and motorcycles.

9.) Bad Girls Club – Colin Nicholas Clary
10.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
11.) She’s A Motorcycle – Colin Clary
12.) Faineant – Swale

I love that song about wishing he was a motorcycle and could go where he wants. Well sung Eric Olsen. Motorcycle and Girls Club are from Twee Blues, the album Colin just sent me. Thanks! There are some fun songs on that album. Boys Club is a classic from Peg about the anger that comes from being excluded because of race or sex or whatever. When you think about it the best way to fight terrorism is not with guns and bombs but to make everyone included and feel valued and have a hope of a decent life. It’s really not that hard to figure out. This next song is something that I have had for months on vinyl but have not been able to play for you, since we play all music files at the station. Thanks for ripping the MP3 for this one Chris!!!

13.) Bling Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
14.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
15.) Cowgirl In The Sand – The Seth Yacovone Band

Seth and the band played a killer show last week at Nectar’s to help WBKM celebrate its birthday. Joe Moore started the night on solo sax and tossed in a nice cover of Heart Of Gold. Seth played a solo set of Neil Young songs. He began with After The Gold Rush and closed with My My Hey Hey. The full band came on after and opened with Hey Hey My My and played tons of classics, including a killer version of Cowgirl. I was just thinking of the show The Cush played last year at Arts Riot, where they sold me their killer new album. That is the lead off song. Great song from Francis!!! OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
17.) So They Say – The New Siberians
18.) Who’s Fault Was That – The Snaz
19.) Compared To You – The Decentz

I love mixing something so old like Compared with something so new like Fault. I thought they sounded quite nice together. I’m still impatiently waiting for the next Siberians album. Great song that likely will be on that album. Killer song from Dirtminers. It’s been drizzly and rainy all night and feels a little bit like this.

20.) In The Rain – Plan B
21.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
22.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Musicians

I’m so glad there is one candidate for President talking about the need to create a world where people don’t want to be terrorists, rather than dealing with the repercussions afterwards. Bernie has been doing it for decades. Plan and Alice Austin sure sum up the mood of the evening. Since I have a bit of an international commentary going, I thought this would be fun to play.

23.) Attempt No Landing Aria – Mailbox
24.) Micronesia – Mailbox
25.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s not do it next week but rather spend Thanksgiving with our families and not shopping. Let’s do it the week after that, and the week after that…

Sparks – The Color Exchange

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I just got back from seeing music at the last installment of Summervale, the weekly festival that happens every Thursday in Burlington’s Intervale. The darkness began settling in during the middle of the set and the change of seasons is upon us. The music was great, and I’ll talk about that in a bit, but one person has done a lot to make the music happen, Joe Adler, and it was his birthday. To help celebrate, I’m going to go back to an album I received last week and play a fun song.

1.) Happy Birthday Freak Of Science – Mailbox
2.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
3.) Papa’s Child – Currently Nameless

It was fun reading Dan Bolles mention of nameless and finding the balance of clever but not too clever for their name. They are playing a reunion show at Higher Ground Saturday night. Cool party song from Wave and great song from Adam Rabin. At Summervale tonight is was Michael Chorney, Francesca Blanchard, and Joe Adler. Each told a story then played a song then passed it to the next player. Michael was a bit more quiet but his guitar playing was so elegant. Francesca played guitar beautifully and had some great articulation to her vocals all night long. Joe was the storytelling ringmaster and played a bunch of fun songs. Here is a hint of what it sounded like.

4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
5.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
6.) Guitar – Michael Chorney

Such great music tonight. Yea, Joe has played a lot of music in this town and booked a lot of music in this town and has gotten a lot of people excited about music in this town and it’s his birthday, so let’s play some of his music.

7.) Coffee & Eggs – Joe Adler
8.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
9.) Burning Down The House – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

That was Joe and the band live at Nectar’s. They are such a fun band. The song in the middle was from his star-studded solo album, and the first was from the 11-11-11 EP. OK, in non Joe news, this band is coming to The Monkey House on the 16th. They are a great band and I’ve loved them more and more every time I’ve seen them. You should really check them out Joe!!

10.) Until The Day I Die->I-78 – Slingshot Dakota
11.) Annex & Index – Doom Service
12.) Infamous U-Turn – Zola Turn

Classic song from the ’90’s. That’s a new Doom song from the F*@! Cancer compilation to raise money for Leukemia research. Their singer guitar player Jeff Foran has been fighting it so I wanted to let people know about it, and bought a copy of the album today. Every little bit helps. Killer songs from Slingshot. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the killer album from The Mountain Says No. This may be one of the best songs from Burlington ever.

13.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No
14.) Bomb – Envy
15.) All My Life – Wide Wail

Two great songs from the ’90’ and one from today. We’re so lucky in Burlington. Let’s keep rocking.

16.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
17.) Yardsale – Lendway
18.) Hoping That I’m Wrong – Will

Great song from the Rutland band. Hmm, Lendway. OK, let’s play another fun Mailbox song.

19.) Under The Horse – Mailbox
20.) Freak Out Friday – Rue Mevlana
21.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Kat and the band are at Radio Bean tonight and playing on Church St next Thursday. Rue have a couple of shows coming up Saturday at the Off Center For The Dramatic Arts. This next singer is one of my all time favorites.

22.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC
23.) Finder – The Madelines
24.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger

That was Joe and the band live at Nectar’s. Happy Birthday Joe! Finder was another classic ’90’s song. OK, time to take off I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we. Here’s Black Rabbit to take us out.

25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
Ourto

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington and tonight the town is hopping. There are people all over the place, lots of cars and motorcycles driving up and down main st. The kids went back to school this week, but it’s still a great summer night in town. Tonight I want to start with the upcoming Presidential campaign that is shaping up. No matter what you think, it’s important to elect smart compassionate people who are aware of the subtle intricacies of foreign policy. This first song is about AQ Kahn, the father of the Pakistani atomic bomb, and a cute ditty about unrequited love. Please choose leaders who know more about these kinds of things than rock stars. This is My Atom Girl by the Dirtminers on Wbkm and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) My Atom Girl – Dirtminers
2.) Great Escape – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Devil Knows My Name – Great Western

Yea, I finally got a copy of that song that has been played all over Burlington for the last year or so. Thanks Ryan Osswald. Killer song from the politically aware and very thoughtful Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter. He played a pretty cool show at Radio Bean last Saturday. Yes, when choosing a Presidential candidate, it’s nice if they have a good understanding of the American experience, but as the late great Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story) once said, “It’s a round world last time I checked” OK, back to music. Burlington had a wonderful guest come and play at Nectar’s for us last night. His name is Yonrico Scott and he’s played with the Derek Trucks Band and dozens of others. He was joined by a bunch of excellent Burlington musicians like Bob Wagner, Shane Hardiman, Josh Weinstein and others. Kat Wright got up and sang a couple of songs with him, which was pretty cool.

4.) Them Changes – Yonrico Scot
5.) You’ll Be The Sky – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
6.) Buttonz – Binger
7.) Man On The Side – Joshua Glass Music

I went to Radio Bean and saw acoustic Barbacoa then some of Sammich, which featured Dalton Muzzy from Binger on drums and Josh Glass on keys. They were pretty cool. I saw some of their set, popped over to Nectar’s for most of Yonrico Scot’s first set, then caught the end of Sammich. It was a fun time. In 2013 a well liked and regarded local DJ passed away from leukemia at age 38. Andy Williams, also know as DJ A-Dog, created such love that there was a huge party in his memory last year at Arts Riot. This year the party is on Saturday and is at both Nectar’s and Club Metronome with tons of DJs all day and night, and a show from Rough Francis.

8.) U Thought U Nu-Funk intro… – DJ A-Dog
9.) Exit Strategy – Rue Mevlana
10.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

I’m pretty sure Francis really though A-Dog was righteous, so I wanted to play that one. Rue are playing a show in a couple of weeks called Motley Rue. Could be interesting. OK, here is the next song from JV.

11.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
12.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
13.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
14.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

I love that song, and miss Doll Fight! Classic ’90’s Burlington rock song from Tokyo. I haven’t caught up with As in a while and would really like to. Killer Mountain song!! I first saw this next band when they played one of the legendary parties at Max Krauss‘ house. He moved to Boston and joined them for a new EP.

15.) Auxiliary Girl – Night Slice
16.) Flipside – Kimberly White Project
17.) Bomb – Envy

Classic from Burlington’s ’90’s. I totally cheated with Flipside since KWP play in the Carolinas, but a local musician, who now lives down there, turned me on to them, and I wanted to play a song. Thanks for the heads up Brian Wardrep. This next band played around New England some time ago, had a beer named after them at Vt Pub, then eventually broke up. They are doing a reunion show at Higher Ground on September 5th.

18.) Ocheh (Someday I) – Currently Nameless
19.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
20.) Tune Of An Onion – Currently Nameless

Sean Daily, aka Milton Busker, used to play with Nameless so I though it would be fun to toss one of his songs in between two of theirs. He’s playing Aug 30 at Radio Bean with his new band The Grim Work. This next band played around from 2003-2012 and released this compilation called When Nobody Was Looking. They featured Adam Rabin who went on to join Elephants Of Scotland, and totally flew under my radar. Rats. .

21.) Attempt No Landing Aria – Mailbox
22.) Micronesia – Mailbox
23.) The Other Room (live) – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants are a long way into the third studio album. I can’t wait. Tomorrow at Radio Bean is Vermont Joy Parade, Duke Aeroplane & The Wrong Numbers, and a solo set from Anna Pardenik.

24.) Trouble Of Your Bretheren – Anna Pardenik
25.) This Land Is Your Land – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Getting back to the beginning, if you want a leader who will take care of your bretheren Bernie will do the job nicely. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
