Song before: The Wanting Comes In Waves/Repaid – The Decemberists

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I just heard that Hana Zara is coming back to town on February 11th and I’m very excited. Let’s begin with a song about coming home.

1.) Zion Boat – Hana Zara
2.) Shady Grove – Ben Slotnick – Mandolinist
3.) And The Gods – The New Siberians
4.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

I haven’t caught up with Cricket in a while and they are playing the show with Hana next month and that just makes it even more great. Another great song from the Siberians album Black, Blue, and White. Cool song from Ben. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for some live music and an interview with The Mountain Says No.

5.) The Jam – The Mountain Says No
6.) If You Lie – The Mountain Says No
7.) Right Bright Lord – The Mountain Says No
8.) 3,000 Incubators – The Mountain Says No

Thanks Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great and thanks Mountain! OK, let’s rock.

9.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
10.) Not Good – Peg Tassey MUSIC
11.) Morning Again – Doll Fight
12.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy

I caught Poxy a couple of times at 242 Main. I think they broke up but were loud and furious for a while. Doll fight were an amazing band. I’m glad they left us so much great music. Peg rocked us hard in the ’90’s and hopefully will again in the future. Great song from Clever. This next band just released an album called Odd Todd.

13.) Two Girls – Comrade Nixon
14.) Buy Two, Get None Free – Crime Scene
15.) Fear Monger – Get A Grip
16.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
17.) Gross Indecency – Comrade Nixon

I figured if I was playing a song about indecency I had to play the Doubtfire song too. Grip and Crime are from a new Vt hardcore album from Get Stoked! Records. Nice work from Comrade. So, Rough Francis just released a new EP! Here it is.

18.) Don’t Look Back – ROUGH FRANCIS
19.) Hangin’ On – Rough Francis
20.) Waiting – Rough Francis
21.) Blind Pigs – Rough Francis

Pigs was the b-side from MSP2. The other three are all great and new songs. Yea. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) Drug Laws – SWALE
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) Little Murder – Myra Flynn Music

Myra will release her new album Never Mind The Mourning tomorrow at Shelburne Vineyard. That’s a song from the album. Great song from Kat and the band. Swale are so great. OK, let’s rock the rest of the night away with another local legend.

25.) The Snake->The Violent Strain Of My Broken Heart – Seth Yacovone Band.

That was recorded at Nectar’s December 16, 2017. Thanks Archive.Org. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. In honor of Jazzfest, I played a bunch of blues and jazz, then let it rock.

Song before: Now And Then – Pete Townshend

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. You likely cannot hear what I’m saying since the fire trucks are blaring sirens as I speak. It’s Jazzfest and the town is filled with music and happy people. This first artist is headlining the block party tomorrow from 5-8 on the stage at the top of Church St. This is Afterall (Glad We Made It) by Kat Wright and the Indomitable Soul Band on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Afterall (Glad We Made It) – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
2.) Blue Lunch – Sneakers Jazz Band – Live at White Crow
3.) I’m Just A Lonely So And So – Big Joe Burrell & The Unknown Blues Band

Joe was one of the greats and put tons of music into this town. It’s cool that they just re-released the live in the studio Sneakers band album. Great stuff from some great musicians. They are reuniting for two shows at Club Metronome on Sunday. Great stuff from Kat and the band. Let’s stay with the classic Vt theme.

4.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson
5.) Stronger – Belizbeha
6.) Fearless->Benny And The Jets->Fearless – Marco Benevento.

That was from a show Marco played at Radio Bean. Belizbeha used to play their acid jazz all over town. There’s a lot of talent in that band. Let’s keep things jazzy for just a little while longer.

7.) Breathe – Barika
8.) Mon Ange – Francesca Blanchard
9.) Burning Down The House (live) – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

That was from a fun show and recorded live at Nectar’s. Francesca is playing Light Club Lamp Shop this evening. I love the flow of the Barika song. Well, last week I played the last song from Swale‘s The Next Instead. It’s time to start a new album to play song after song, week after week. This album is not out yet but should be released June 27th when they play The Monkey House. The album is called JV from a band called The Mountain Says No.

10.) Come And Decide – The Mountain Says No
11.) Kill Your Idols – Steve Blair & Andy Hildebrandt
12.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Phil and the band are playing the Monkey House tomorrow. Classic VT musicians covering a Slush/Five Seconds Expired song from the Burlington Does Burlington disc. Great song from Mountain and a lot more great songs by Mountain on the way. If you listened to the Zoot song you may have caught the line about enjoying 6-7 daiquiris. A lot of people in Burlington like to have a few drinks and see music and have fun. One of the preferred drinks is the subject of this next set.

13.) Whiskey Man – Arc Iris
14.) Don’t Give That Guy Whiskey – Torpedo Rodeo
15.) A Bottle Of Whiskey Later – Crazyhearse
16.) The Whiskey Always Wins – When Particles Collide

Particles are heading out on the road. Check your local listings and check them out if they come to your town. Killer song by Crazyhearse. I had lots of fun seeing Torpedo when they used to do the basement shows with tons of bands. I loved seeing Iris a couple of weeks back. Hopefully I’ll get to see them again. The Crazyhearse song had Rebecca Rogers on it. So does the next one.

17.) When I’m Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
18.) Summertime – The Velvet Ovum Band
19.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future

Great song that was recorded at Nectar’s too. Classic from Peg Tassey MUSIC and her band. I just love this next song.

20.) Say It – Anachronist
21.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western
22.) The Banks Of Marble – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

It’s great that Bernie’s message today is the same as it was back when he recorded that. It’s too bad that it still has to be the same. The Western song could have fit in the whiskey set, but works in any set of music. OK, time for a couple left. This next band was fronted by Dan Bolles who writes for Seven Days and has taught me a lot about music in our town over the years.

23.) Highway Girl – The Skamaphrodites
24.) The Blackout – The Static Age

That band spawned two great Burlington musicians. Marie Claire Johnson played keys on that and went on to front Fire The Cannons, and Bobby Hackney Jr. plays drums on that song and now sings for the mighty ROUGH FRANCIS. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our – why is the mic light not lit up?

1.) Under Bright Stars – Alice Austin

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Sorry about the mic mishap. That was a brand new song from Alice! Let’s keep going with another great singer songwriter.

2.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
3.) Liar – Maryse Smith
4.) Afterlife – Hana Zara

About a year ago I saw Hana for the first time at The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival. She blew me away and I’ve gone back to see her as many times as I could. Nice song with lots of great changes from Maryse. I just saw this next band playing in the Intervale, and they had to be a bit mellow, because of the kids.

5.) Wiser – And The Kids
6.) The Mime – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
7.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
8.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
9.) Bulletproof Vest – Zola Turn

Songs like that are why I want to play Ninja Jane all the way through. Songs like that kept me going back to see Zola again and again. Great new song from Swale. I cant’ wait to get the album and play the title song. They played a great show last Friday at Radio Bean. Great song from Particles. If you live in America, go see them, they are probably playing somewhere near you. Great song from Joe Adler. He’s done such a great job booking Radio Bean and the Precipice, and I’m so psyched for this years edition of the festival. He’s also a big supporter of And The Kids. They will play a rocking show tomorrow at Radio Bean.
I just heard that Jane Boxall joined Black Rabbit. I’m going to play one of her solo marimba songs, then her old band Doll Fight, then a Black Rabbit song, so you can guess what it will sound like.

10.) Pyramid – Jane Boxall
11.) Morning Again – Doll Fight!
12.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
13.) Shut Up – Gorgon

Gorgon played a killer show at The Monkey House on Monday. They rose from the ashes of Doll Fight! I hope you can imagine how Jane will sound in Black Rabbit. Hey, it’s summer. Let’s go to the beach. Jane plays on this one too.

14.) Beach Song – Ray Fork
15.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
16.) Catskills – Alpenglow

That song makes me think of driving up Route 9N on a sunny day. They are playing a free show at Signal Kitchen on Saturday. Blotto used to play in town a long time ago. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

It was hard watching the news on satellite today. There has been an enormous loss of life and it’s about time we started to understand that we’re all the same,
