Such a powerful song from Hana. Serena will be at Radio Bean on Saturday. If you like that song, go check out her show. L&L will be at Light Club Lamp Shop that night too.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM in the Champlain Valley, also streaming at our website, will go as follows:

Song before: Soul Eternal – Anderson Ponty Band

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week in Burlington, but something unusual happened late Monday night. A meteor with a blue trail sailed over Vermont and could be seen all around New England. Let’s begin with a brand new song that speaks of meteors.

1.) Oysters – Jane Boxall Percussion with Miriam Bernardo
2.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker
3.) Spirit Won’t Fall Down – Rachel Brown
4.) Sharktopus – Villanelles

That’s a cool new song from Villanelles cool new album Blue Heart Attack. Spirit is a song from Burlington’s ’90’s and I still remember seeing Rachel and how powerful her voice is. Great song from Milton who is at Light Club Lamp shop tonight at 8pm. Jane just put out a new album called Field Notes. Miriam’s voice just makes that song. OK, it’s time for the next song on Callisto.

5.) Look Ahead – Alpenglow
6.) Too Much – Slingshot Dakota
7.) Hallelujah – Dirty Blondes
8.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

That’s a brand new song from the brand new Elephants album The Perfect Map. I had a great time seeing the Blondes at Nectar’s on Monday and while listening, I knew I wanted to play that one for you. Great new song from Slingshot. Their new album Break is still keeping me listening to it. Great new song from Alpenglow. This next band are at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow.

9.) Edible – SWALE
10.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
11.) Finder – Madelines
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons filled a rock void in the early 200’s and played some killer shows. Finder is a classic from the ’90’s. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell from Envy are playing in their new band The Nancy Druids at Radio Bean on Friday at 10pm. I really enjoyed seeing this next band a little over a week ago at The Monkey House

13.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things
14.) Say It – Anachronist
15.) Speed Car – Torpedo Rodeo
16.) Paranoid – Surf Sabbath

SS are really The High Breaks when they play Sabbath covers. They did such a great job rearranging the songs into a surf style. I saw Torpedo a few times in the early 00’s and always had a rocking time. I love Say It!! Better should have lots of cool new music coming soon. OK, let’s go back to the ’80’s. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to go.

17.) Hold Me Tight – The Decentz
18.) Melt – Chin Ho
19.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
20.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC played some great music back in the ’90’s. That’s a pretty new song from Admiral. They are playing Sunday at Radio Bean. I played Chin Ho’s cover as an homage to the ’80’s Ladies who have the show before me on Thursday nights at 7pm on WBKM. That song from the Decentz always gets me moving. A former local musician and music writer who has been working at the Future Of Music Coalition, Casey Merlin Rae, has just moved on to a job with SiriusXM. Congratulations. Here is one of his solo songs.

21.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
22.) Another Life Ago – The Cush
23.) Before The Evenings Thru – THE VACANT LOTS

The lots used to play around in the early 10’s but are now touring the US and touring the world. Great song from the Cush’s first album. They played that song many times in Burlington. Yea Casey! This next song is pretty new and catchy as can be.

24.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
25.) Random Earth – Elephants Of Scotland
26.) For Buddy – Elephants Of Scotland

Those are the two last songs on Elephant’s new album The Perfect Map. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

She’ll Come Back For You Tomorrow – The Church Band

 

 

Hair Down and Steady Betty February 22, 2013   Leave a comment

I almost did not make it to this show. With Steady Betty set to go on at 11:30, and having to work at 9 the next morning, the numbers were against me. Knowing the sheer talent in the band, and that they would play a style of music that is out of my comfort zone, left me conflicted. Joe Adler and Samara Lark were on before them, so that was a plus. I almost faded, after a long day at work, but pulled off a last minute rally and headed to Radio Bean.

I got there just as Hair Down down was getting set to play. With my hair was already down, I got a beer, then Joe Adler and Samara Lark started up. He played a plugged in acoustic and both sang. They caught a nice groove right off and sounded great. They played a bunch of covers, including a joyous Sitting on the Dock of the Bay. At one point Samara whistled along and was pitch perfect. They played an elegant version of Atlantic City. An acoustic treatment to ’80’s pop song Sweet Dreams was very cool, and Samara drove home the vocal. They did a very casual Burning Down the House with a fun jazz/blues ending. Hungry like the Wolf started relaxed, but soared when it hit the chorus. How can you not let loose when it’s playing?

While the covers were fun, it was Joe’s songs that stole the show. One song about twirling was pretty fun. The song about the wicked witch of the west is one I need to get to know. The closer, with the tag line let’s relax for a while, was a beautiful way to wrap up their set.

During the break, I chatted a bit with Jeff and Matt from Vedora, and with Johnnie Day Durand from Wee Folkestra. It’s so great when fellow band mates show up for support!

On time, or close to it, Steady Betty, if that is their name, took the stage. Their rocksteady music was a bit slow for my taste, but the playing was so precise and the vocals so large, that I really enjoyed them. Miriam Bernardo and Kat Wright handled most of the vocals, but at times Linda Bassick and Caroline O’Connor chimed in, and their combined voice filled the room. Caroline, on bass, seemed completely locked in with Sara Grace on drums. Linda kept the rhythm on guitar and Christine Mathias was precise on sax all night long. The Caribbean music was light and fun, contrasting with the poignant lyrics about justice.

The crowd mostly filled Radio Bean and Betty had us dancing for the whole set. I was pretty tired from the beginning, but stood as long as I could. At one point my beer was empty. I looked at the clock and it was 12:35, and I knew I had to go. I slipped out the Duino! (Duende) door, and took the slow walk home. I could hear them play for about a block or so, then it just faded away. I probably shouldn’t have gone out, but I’m so glad I did.
