Miku Daza and Faun Fables at Light Club Lamp Shop July 10, 2018   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music at Light Club Lamp Shop. It was one of those 8 hour work days where everything was far more needlessly complicated that it should have been. I soldiered through and brought a reasonable solution to most problems, then zipped home and settled.

I didn’t settle for long since I knew Miku Daza were going to throw some fiery music into the world. I took the walk downtown and caught a furious pace and sailed into the Lamp Shop just before showtime. They were still setting up so I chatted with a couple of cool people as I settled in.

Miku hit the stage hard and fast with their blend of klezmer/ska/punk/glam or whatever fury they bring us into. Parasite rocked and Flaca Daza rocked even harder. They took more of a punk turn on the next one then sang about paparazzi. We got off on a new one then they sang about how we sing and we dance. We Panicked on the next one then went to the funeral. They played a song with a gypsy vibe and a hip hop lyric which makes it what, gyp-hop? They closed the set with Frosty Pink Skies and the crowd was elated.

The set break took a bit but Mycelium MC helped time go by with a couple of poems, and audience participation for car and bike sounds. I think he spoke about love and living.

Soon after, Faun Fables graced the stage. The lovely and powerful duo mixed up drums, acoustic guitar, electric 12 sting guitar, bass and wove a beautifully powerful spell. They sang about sleepwalking then followed it with a rocking Polish song about this youth of ours. They took us on a journey to a country house then sang about relationships that aren’t important. I think that one was called Roadkill. They featured a mournful flute on the next one then played a song with a classic, subtly powerful, Bay area sound. They sang a song about birthdays that I think was called Madmen And Dogs, then did their best to break my heart. The song about a mother and a piano stirred feelings that had been running though me all day. You’ve got to love it when an artist just cuts to the heart of the power and delicacy of life. The Lemmy reference in the intro to the one about moving backwards in time was joyous. They took us to the witch’s garden then ended with something that might have been about a burning sun. Their set was gentle and powerful and beautiful and fun and evoked a strong response from the crowd.

I hung out and chatted for a bit then took the lovely walk home. I love how much fantastic music arrives in our town.

Song before: Winter – Tori Amos

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed spending the time with my family and friends. It’s now legal to play Christmas songs but I only have a couple lined up tonight. I want to begin tonight by offering my deepest condolences to Gabrielle Douglas who just lost her father. He sounded like an incredible man. Gabby is strong and I want to begin with a beautiful piece of music that she and Burette have given us.

1.) The Last Carol – The Cush
2.) Overcoat – SWALE
3.) Plains – Tom Pearo
4.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys

I just heard about the Torys. They are from Lyndon and sound pretty cool and I need to check them out more. Tom is a great musician. That’s from his new Headspace album. It has been chilly out and there have been several nights where taking a walk with a nice overcoat has been a lovely idea. Great song from The Cush. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and four live songs from Eastern Mountain Time.

5.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time
6.) All We Need – Eastern Mountain Time
7.) Low Down Mid-December – Eastern Mountain Time
8.) Same Ways – Eastern Mountain Time

I want to thank the band for being so great and to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound amazing. OK, on the last show I played the last song from the Surf Sabbath album so I have to start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week. Let’s begin Black, Blue, and White by The New Siberians.

9.) All The Kids – The New Siberians
10.) Judgement Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
11.) In The Country – Bardela
12.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association

Sarah played a great version of that a couple of weeks ago at Club Metronome. I love playing that song when it’s cold out to remind us of what is to come. Lovely song by Bardela. Judgement is from the upcoming album Book Of Zoo and I can’t wait for it. Great song from the Siberians from a stellar album. So, on the night before Thanksgiving I went to Radio Bean and Light Club Lamp Shop and saw these next 4 bands.

13.) All Is Lost – The Mountain Carol
14.) Mama – Ivamae
15.) Do U Love U? – Best Fern
16.) Can We Be Still? – Thanya Iyer

Thanya and Fern are from Montreal and are friends and did not know that each other was playing that night. That’s so Burlington. Ivama is amazing and Carol are a really cool band from Plattsburgh. So, we’ve had some dramatic sunrises and sunsets lately with vivid colors. The other night the sky was purple and that always makes me think of this song.

17.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
18.) Wish For Winter – Near North
19.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
21.) Militant Mind – Mycelium MC

That was recorded live at Jim’s Basement which is a pretty cool venue. Great song by the MC who is playing a show at 11 tonight at Radio Bean. Portrait paint a fascinating view of our state. Great song from Phil’s upcoming album. I can’t wait for that one either. Great songs from North and Zola. This gentleman will be at the Bean tonight at 11 too.

22.) You’re Not Listening – Forest Gray
23.) Hang Em High School – Barbacoa
24.) Supernatural – Ryan Ober and the Romans
25.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
26.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No

I figure that if I keep playing that song, someone will have to eventually get Mountain that sled. Great rockers from Ryan and Crazy. Something about the Ryan song make me think it would sound great with the Crazy one. I caught Barbacoa the night after Thanksgiving with my cousins Michael Pearson and Caleb Pearson at Foam Brewers and they were amazing as always. Great questions from Forest. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
