From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. I want to thank Higher Ground for being such a great rock club and for sponsoring our station. Let’s begin with one of those great Burlington songs that gets performed now and then.

1.) Once Upon – Vedora
2.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton
3.) Forsythia – Cricket Blue
4.) Bury Me – Forest Gray

Forest has so many fun songs. I wanted to play a song about flowers since we got a nice snowstorm this morning. Thanks Cricket. Great song from Peter. That was recorded live by Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio a couple of weeks ago. Last week I went back to the studio with Jeremy Gilchrist for the second part in the ongoing series. Here is the interview and the three songs he played.

5.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
6.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) Great Filter – Jeremy Gilchrist

Thanks to Ryan and Jeremy for making that happen. It will be fun to bring in bands to play live, now and then. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week. We are currently traveling though By My Side and here comes the rock song.

8.) The Light – Kat Wright

17.) The Call – Swillbillie
18.) Windigo – Crazyhearse

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It finally snowed and got a little cold, but my heart is nice and warm after seeing Bernie Sanders do so well in New Hampshire this week. He has inspired a lot of people, including several of our wonderful local musicians. Recently, several of them got together to record one of the songs Bernie recorded for his album, so many years ago. Tonight let’s begin with Kat Wright, Bob Wagner, Marie Claire Johnson, Kelly Ravin, and many others doing a classic in honor of Bernie.

1.) This Land Is Your Land – VT artists
2.) Oh Freedom – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
3.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit

That is the next song on their wonderful album Red Flannel Hash. I’m working my way through that album song by song, week by week. Original is such a fun rocker. I had to go back and play one of the Bernie classics and put it back to back with the new Bernie classic. Just listening to the performances, we are truly blessed in Burlington, and have been for a long time. You can just feel the love flowing out of Land. OK, for the rest of the show tonight we are going to rock out. I just got a copy of the 8th WBKM birthday party show that Seth Yacovone played for us at Nectar’s on November 12, 2015.

Songs before: Weeping Willow – Persian Claws
A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shot – Neil Young

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?

Neil Young and Promise of the Real with Puss N Boots at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds, Essex Junction VT July 19, 2015   Leave a comment

Neil Young at Essex Fairgrounds July 19 2015 Picture by Kim Tuure Faris

Neil Young at Essex Fairgrounds July 19 2015 Picture by Kim Tuure Faris

I had a great time seeing music Sunday night at the Fairgrounds in Essex Junction.  I’ve seen a lot of great artists over the years, but had never caught up with Neil Young.  His new album is about love of our planet and fears about what companies like Monsanto are doing to our food and food system.  Vermont just enacted a law saying products with GMO’s in them need to be labeled and Neil came to our state to voice his support, and play a killer rock show.  I was not sure if I was going to make it but on Friday Mike Luoma said he got tickets and asked if I wanted to go.  I did.  I got out of work around 4:30 and had time to grab some food and relax and we headed out about 6:30.  There was a lot of traffic trying to get into the venue, but we took it slow and steady and arrived just after 7:30.  The weather for the outdoor show looked iffy, and the black cloud over us on the way in spit a few drops or rain, but that was it.  As we approached the parking spot a couple of close lightning bolts lit up the sky, but the cloud steadily moved away.  We made our way to the will call and picked up the tickets.  There was a small packed bar in the grandstand area, but no obvious beer garden.  We guessed there would be one inside, so in we went.  There was not.  There was an open standing area in front of the stage, then rows of seats.  Ours were 4 rows behind the standing area and dead center.  Aside from the lack of beer, it was perfect.

Puss n Boots were on stage when we found out seats.  They played some Americana songs, that would not feel out of place on the Oh Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack.  They played some nice songs, but didn’t really grab me.  I listened intently for the 20 minutes or so until their set ended, and was in a happy place.

A long set break followed, but as the sun began to set, the lights dimmed and two farmers wandered onto the stage.  With large hats to keep away the sun, and large bags of seed hung on their shoulders, they broadcast seeds all over the stage, and stopped now and then to water their flowers.  This went on for several minutes until Neil walked out on the left side of the stage, sat at the piano and began singing After The Gold Rush.  The hairs on the back of my neck stood up as I let the gorgeous sounds and words fill me.  The image of the farmers followed by the line “Look at Mother Nature on the run in the 21st century perfectly set up the whole show.  I knew he had a band, so opening solo acoustic said the show was going to be his classic style of starting slow and rocking hard at the end.  Changing the line about Mother Nature set the stage for many songs about being stewards of the earth, which is heavily reflected in his new album The Monsanto Years.  He switched to acoustic guitar for Heart Of Gold, Long May You Run, and Old Man and the audience was enchanted.  He moved over to the pump organ for one of the many songs I would not recognize by title, but knew from the first note.  Mother Earth (Natural Anthem) was beautiful and the line, “Respect Mother Earth and her giving ways Or trade away our children’s days” drove home the point of the whole show. 

As Neil donned the acoustic, and the roadies rolled the organ off the stage, several men in chemical contamination suits, with gas masks and oxygen tanks, doused the stage in an ominous fog.  As they blasted the flowers with an unknown substance, the point was not subtle.  They left the stage and the Promise Of The Real settled into their instruments, and the show went on.  Lucas and Michah Nelson each took a guitar, and the rest of the band was a bass player, a drummer and a percussionist who was set up in the back by the drums.  They followed with a couple of classics that I did not know by name, Out for The Weekend and Unknown Legend, then lit up the audience with Only Love Can Break Your Heart.  They followed with From Hank To Hendrix, which I’ve always really liked, then let loose a gorgeous Harvest Moon.  The band sounded great and Neil was still playing acoustic when they followed with the first new song of the night, Wolf Moon.  It really sounded nice, but then things got a bit more intense

Neil strapped on the electric guitar and kicked off one of those riffs that were instantly recognizable and off we ran through Words (Between The Lines Of Age).  Looking For A Love followed, and was great fun.  A special surprise followed when Neil introduced Lucas Nelson, who sat down at the piano and the band played a beautiful version of Moonlight In Vermont.  It went over exactly as you would expect.  Until this point Neil had not chatted with the audience much if at all, but at this point he firmly stated “Strong Vermont.  Standing up when other states sit down”.  He started off a run of songs from the Monsanto Years with A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop.  The Vermont references in the song charged the crowd and the band went from the whistling chorus into a spot where they rocked hard and brought it back to the whistling with a beautiful precision.  They followed with a couple more Monsanto songs, People Want To Hear About Love, and A New Day For Love.  I forget which one, but one of them rocked so hard that I thought even if he did not play some classics, such as Like A Hurricane, it would not matter since he played some blisteringly intense leads in that one.  They pulled out another Crazy Horse classic , Country Home, then came the highlight of the night.  Down By The River was epic with huge guitar solos and completely wicked playing.  It must have run 15 minutes or so and was face-meltingly fantastic.  After that he said curfew was at 11 and he was not going to waste any time.  There was no encore break, they just kept going.  They played two more Monsanto songs, Workin’ Man and Monsanto Years, which were quite nice.  They closed with Love And Only Love, which again had some epic guitar work wrapped in and around the easy to sing verses.  As the song ground to a conclusion Neil hit another note on the guitar, then another, then the band went back into the crashing ending until the music began to fade.  Neil hit another note, then another note and another epic end jam happened.  They ran the final jamming right until 11 and said good night.  This was my first time seeing him, and the show was everything I could have hoped for.  I loved every note and did not even mind the long slow wait to get out of the parking lot.

Song before: Hymnalayas – Gong

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful day in Burlington and lots of people are out and about tonight. It was also a beautiful night last Sunday when Neil Young and The Promise Of The Real came to Essex. He came to Vermont to support our GMO labeling law, which is the subject of his new album The Monsanto Years. This is one of the songs from the album that heavily mentions Vermont and the importance of knowing what we are eating, This is A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop by Neil Young on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) A Rock Star Bucks A Coffee Shop – Neil Young
2.) Moonlight In Vermont – Willie Nelson
3.) Threaded – Jeremy Gilchrist
4.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

It’s summer in Burlington and that was a band from Rutland and that was recorded at Nectar’s. Great new song from Jeremy. At the Neil Young show, Lucas and Micah Nelson were part of the Promise Of The Real. They are the sons of Willie and Lucas sang a great version of Moonlight In Vermont last Sunday in Essex. Oh, yea, it’s summer. Let’s head to the beach.

5.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
6.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
7.) Theme Song – Shark Victim
8.) Rising Suns – Mammal Dap
9.) Rise – Barika

Such a nice cool breezy song. If you like that song, head to Radio Bean tomorrow. Mammal just played Summervale earlier this evening. When you go to the beach, obey the lifeguard and watch out for sharks, especially when surfing. So, on Saturday there is a celebration of the Old North End of Burlington. People get together and walk around the ONE and check out art and music and food and what businesses are doing and all sorts of fun things. It’s called The Ramble and this next set of music is dedicated to Burlington’s Old North End.

10.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
11.) The North – Hana Zara
12.) North Street – Death World Wide

Killer rocker from Death. I love the imagery of the north end in Hana’s song. Loud and Proud nicely describes the ONE, thanks James. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the killer new album from The Mountain Says No.

13.) JC And The Beast – The Mountain Says No
14.) Getting High – Heavy Plains
15.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
16.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

I still remember that time when there were not a lot of cool rock bands around for a few months and then came Cannons. Oh, how they rocked so many great shows. Killer song from Particles who are touring all over the US and just played Toronto too. I’m still in awe of Plains from that Nectar’s show. Hmm, Signs And Wonders. Hmmm Mountain. When I put tonight’s show together the beginning just flowed then I hit a wall after Nowhere. I just wasn’t sure where to go next, for a moment.

17.) Where Do We Go? – Black Rabbit
18.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
19.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
20.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler

Killer song from Joe’s album. He’s done so much for the local music scene, especially writing and playing songs like that. Nice rocker form Raph Worrick and the gang. Classic VT song from Chin. Yet another great song from Rabbit’s new album Red Flannel Hash. Recently, there was a band who played a bunch of shows then just stopped. I’m missing them and feeling a little lacking, like maybe i need to take some vitamins or something.

21.) Vitamin Dee – Persian Claws
22.) Medula Mamblongata – Strung Out
23.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
24.) The Feeling – Vedora

Killer new song from the second Vedora album. If you liked the whistling on Birds, go check out Aaron next Wednesday at Red Square. Killer song form the classic VT band. I feel a bit better after that shot of Vitamin Dee, I hope you do too. I saw this next band twice last Thursday. They played Summervale, I left then did the show and walked into Light Club Lamp Shop just as they were about to go on. Both shows were great but the later one was out of this world. Here’s a couple of their songs.

25.) Honor Of The Rainbows part 1 & 2 – Arc Iris
26.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. I might be off next week seeing the Decemberists but we can to it the week after that, and the week after that…..

I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org, and seeing Arc Iris at Light Club Lamp Shop right after. On my show I highlighted some of the music happening in town this week and the big Neil Young show coming up Sunday in Essex. Of course, I highlighted it with local bands doing Neil. As for Arc Iris, they were great this afternoon at Summervale and simply stunning tonight at the Lamp Shop.

Songs before: Canadian Cowboy – Arc Iris
Hey Hey, My My – Neil Young and Crazy Horse

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s summertime and there are sunflowers everywhere. Twilight has fallen upon the city and there is music in the air. Kat Wright and the band are playing Battery Park this evening and Arc Iris played at the Intervale festival this afternoon. I caught most of Arc’s set and it was just fantastic. So delicate and precise and majesticly angelic. Some of the subtleties were lost in the audience’s lack of focus, but for those of us who listened, it was magical. Music is like that. It’s so powerful and fulfilling and then just evaporates. Some music only exists when the band is playing it and is never recorded. From then on, it lives only as a memory. This is a song that it could have happened to, but happily the band recorded it and just released it. I’m so happy to be able to play it whenever I want now. This is Sober by Vedora on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Sober – Vedora
2.) Good Medicine – Swale
3.) Powderfinger – Seth Yacovone Band

Seth and the band played a show of all Neil Young songs last year at the WBKM birthday party, and I’m psyched to have a recording of it. A lot of people are excited about Neil coming to town on Sunday. Swale played a killer version of that last Friday at Nectar’s including the killer guitar solo. Hmmm, Vedora. This next band are at The Monkey House tomorrow.

4.) Nothing To Prove – Vows
5.) Bare Trees – Vedora
6.) Hustle – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
7.) Lost On Me – Arc Iris

They were great this afternoon and I can’t wait to see them again after this show. I’ll likely miss the beginning of the show, but catch what I can. I could hear a tiny bit of Kat and the band as I walked downtown, and they always sound great. Another killer song from the new Vedora album that was recorded at Signal Kitchen. Eastern Mountain Time are releasing an album tomorrow but I could not find any of their music. Here are the other two bands who are playing with them.

8.) I got A Job – Maryse Smit
9.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
10.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
11.) Summertime – Peg Tassey MUSIC

A couple of great songs from Burlington’s illustrious ’90’s. Sean from Eastern opened for Phil Yates when he released his album, so it’s nice the Affiliates are returning the favor. Ok, here comes the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week.

12.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
13.) Double Line – Black Rabbit
14.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
15.) Black And Red – ROUGH FRANCIS

Francis played a killer show at Nectar’s with Swale and Plains. I was elated to finally see HP. I loved their first song but Womb is the one I’ve been walking around with in my head. Killer new Rabbit song. OK, let’s play another new Vedora song.

16.) Floating – Vedora
17.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Seth Yacovone Band

Killer version of the Neil classic. This next band are kicking off their summer tour Saturday at Radio Bean.

18.) Sequoia I – Binger
19.) Who’s Fault Was That? – The Snaz
20.) Showdown At The Blue Moon Hotel – Jerichovox
21.) Sequoia III – Binger

If you go to the Binger show, be ready to dance, for a long time. Killer song from Vox. They will be at the Monkey House on Wednesday. The Snaz are at Nectar’s on Saturday playing an early show at 7. OK, let’s go back to the ’80’s for a killer Neil Young cover.

22.) Cinnamon Girl – Ninja Custodian
23.) Down By The River->Like A Hurricane – The Seth Yacovone Band.

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we?
