I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a bit of a regal feel and highlighted a lot of the music from last week and this coming weekend. It was also seasonally appropriate, even if the weather wasn’t.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a super warm, maybe in the 70’s, day and it’s warm this evening. A lot of people are out and about and enjoying the night. Today is the 5th of November, the day Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament. As we have evolved over the years, there is less of a need for such drastic action. In fact, all we have to do is elect reasonable and compassionate and smart people, and we could have a great government. Maybe one day. Tonight, let’s begin with Burlington itself. It was founded in 1865 and was a major lumber mill port that brought wood from Quebec to the eastern US. Early on, it was called the Queen City of New England. Let’s begin with some Burlington music about queens.

1.) Rock ‘n Roll Queen – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) We Rock Out 2 Queen – Rue Mevlana
3.) Queen Of Hostility – Doll Fight
4.) I’d Hate To Be Me – Queen Tangerine

Some of the regal music from Burlington. It’s interesting to see how we have evolved. We began by needing a strong leader, and have moved to a system were we can govern ourselves more and more. If we are cool about it, we have a lot of potential. OK, last Friday I caught a ton of cool music. I started with this band, although the set I caught was them covering the Elvis Costello album Blood and Chocolate. This is the next song from No Need To Beg.

5.) Drinking For Two – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
7.) Singing – Arc Iris
8.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
9.) I Think I’m Turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future

I began the night at The Skinny Pancake to see Phil’s first set, then hustled to Light Club Lamp Shop to catch Maryse Smith‘s stunning set. Arc Iris followed and were amazing as always. I hustled over to Finnegan’s and missed Mountain, but caught some of Wave’s wonderful set, including that fun song. There’s a fun show at Finnegan’s tomorrow with some of the guys in Rough Francis playing as Aspero Siacos, and a couple of other cool bands, like this one.

10.) Hungry – Heavy Plains
11.) Destroying Everything They See – Blue Button
12.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

It will be interesting to see what AS sound like, but other two will certainly be killer. Saturday is the day Radio Bean has it’s birthday. As always they will have bands play from 8am to 2am, with about 15 minutes per band. This next band always kick it off.

13.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
14.) Toejam – The Toes
15.) The Mime – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
16.) One More Sunset – Violet Ultraviolette

I’m psyched to see all of those bands play. I’m psyched to see these next ones too.

17.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles
18.) Gonna Stay Up All Night Long – The Eames Brothers
19.) Pauses – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
20.) Crow King – Binger

I’m sorry I missed Binger playing the Scooby Doo show last weekend but am psyched to catch up with them this Saturday. All of those bands rocked, but there will be a lot of music played that day. Here are some of the mellower bands that will play.

21.) Guitar – Michael Chorney and Hollar General
22.) Windy Pines – Kat Wright and Brett Hughes
23.) Matter Of Time – Eric George
24.) Puff The Magic Dragon – Linda Bassick

I’m not sure if Linda is playing kids songs or older people’s songs or both, but it will be fun to find out. I may have to catch Eric for the first time. Kat and Brett always sound nice. Sweet song from Michael. This next song is by Caroline Marie, who has played every Bean Birthday.

25.) Once Upon – Vedora
26.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
27.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
28.) The Next Instead – Swale

I’m thoroughly excited to see Swale already, is it Saturday yet?. Kat and the band are always great. I finally got the see Emily play joke in Barret. I bet he plays that one, what with the Radio Bean references and all. Killer song from Caroline. Songs 13 to 28 are just a tiny hint of what that day will sound like. Is it Saturday yet??? OK, let’s end where we began, with another song from the Queen herself, then I will say goodbye.

29.) I Remember/The Jam – Peg Tassey
30.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I played a nice mix of new and old music and emphatically said Happy Birthday to Joe Adler.

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

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.

I just got back from my 57th local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. It started and ended a bit mellow, but had some rock in between. The song before was Kings by the Church in honor of the return of Game Of Thrones.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The temperature has gotten into the 60’s, the snow is melted, and flowers are coming out. That is one way we know that spring is here. The angle of the sun is another. Here’s Peg Tassey on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Stay Away From Sarah (acoustic) – Chin Ho!
3.) If Time Was A River – Anna Padernik And Her Apologies

Anna is best known in VT and around the world in her band Vermont Joy Parade, but her solo songs are what grab me. That was a great song by classic VT band Chin Ho! I love that Peg song. We are into spring, yea!. I just had a little extra money to buy an album and picked up one I’ve been wanting to for a while.

4.) Liar – Maryse Smith
5.) Guitar – Michael Chorney And Hollar General
6.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

Great song by one of VT’s treasures. I hope you listened to how amazingly well Aaron played that guitar. Michael Chorney has put a lot of music into VT, and will be working on a project with Maryse. That could be cool. Here is the next song on Dancing With The Big Guy.

7.) Funky Breakdown – Ninja Custodian
8.) Flux Capacitor – Wave of the Future
9.) Yardsale – Lendway
10.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey

Sean is half of the dynamic songwriting duo, with Matt Hutton, who brought us the songs of Envy and Red Telephone. Sean also worked with Alice Austin on To A Star In The Yard and played the Burlington show for that album’s release. Part of me thinks I played Yardsale because it’s almost that time in VT, but most of me played it because it’s a great song. Flux is the most Back To The Future of the Wave songs. That was recorded at Nectar’s. I remember seeing Funky many many times at Nectat’s . Up next is another new song from Elephants Of Scotland.

11.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland
12.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
13.) Waterlanding – Swale

To Forget About You. It was fun to get a bit proggy for that set. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Here is a song by Fish that he just released a video for. It’s about the dangers of what we are doing to our world and about not appreciating beauty in our lives

I just got back from radio show 20 on WBKM.ORG.  I headed downtown early and caught a few songs by Alpha Rev, playing in Battery Park.  Daniel Bolles was right.  They sounded a lot like a more country rock Coldplay.  It’s Matthew Hastings birthday, and I forgot to toss in a Vedora song.  I hope this makes it up to him.

Songs before: Jump Back, Promises, In the Pines – Vedora

Intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington.  I caught a few songs by Alpha Rev in Battery Park, and it’s a lovely day, it’s full of sun, people are out and about.  Here is a song recorded at Nectar’s by Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Many A Girl – Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger (live at Nectar’s)

2.) Wake Me When It’s Over – Longwave

3.) Be Aggressive – Be Aggressive

I saw Be Aggressive a couple of weeks ago, then the next show I had, I played the other three bands on the bill, so I wanted to make it up to them.  The song has been in my head a lot lately.  They are playing Friday in White River Junction.  Longwave are a great band from New York City who have come to town a few times and rocked us hard.  Joe and the Rangers are so much fun live.  Tonight, a man who helps almost every other Burlington musician is releasing his own music.

4.) Sweetheart – Ryan Power

5.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

6.) Ev-Er-y Day – The Skamaphrodites

7.) Emily – The Grift

I just realized a guy I’ve worked with for a while, Jeff Vallone, is in a bunch of local bands.  One is the Grift and Emily is a pretty sweet song.  The Skamaphrodites are getting back together for a few shows, including the Precipice.  A whole sampler of music, from bands who are playing the festival, was just released, so I’m delighted to play some of it.  Superhuman was from that too, and that song just makes me feel happy.  Too much music is coming to town at the same time.  Tonight is the High Breaks at Nectar’s and Ryan at Signal Kitchen (High Breaks are going on later and so is Ryan, so I got groceries and went home, with shows Friday and Saturday, and those being my Monday and Tuesday…if HB had been on at 10:15, I would have caught a few songs), Saturday is Hover and Guppy Boy at Monkey House, but I have to see all the bands at the Max Krauss house party.  Friday is Joe and the Rangers at Vt Pub and, at the same time, Sarah Emily Blacker at Radio Bean.  She has a new EP out, but here’s an older song.

8.) I Should Speak – Sarah Blacker

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith

10.) Guitar – Michael Chorney and Hollar General

11.) Solitude – Alpenglow

I’ve been meaning to check out Alpenglow.  I’ve heard good things, but until the Precipice sampler, I had missed them.  Wow, nice song.  Speaking of which, Guitar sounds like a cool breeze running through your mind.  I’ve caught Maryse a couple of times and she has a great voice.  (I missed mentioning that she was likely playing at the same time as my show, opening for Ryan Power).  It’s nice to have a song of hers to play.  Hmmm Sarah Blacker.  Tomorrow.  Hey, there’s a cool band coming to town on Sunday at Signal Kitchen.

12.) A Charm/A Blade – Phosphorescent

13.) Many A Girl (Reprise) – Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger

Well that does it for me.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our….wait, did I forget something?  Right, the next song on the Cush album.

14.) Reprise – The Cush
