I just got home from my 48th local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. I though it was a nice showcase of Burlington in the moment and in the glorious past.

Song before: Red Barchetta – RUSH

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful winter night in Burlington. It snowed all day yesterday but the crews have it in giant piles on Church Street, so it’s easy walking. Tonight let’s start with a band who are about to start a small tour. This is a song called Solitude by a band called Alpenglow on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Solitude – Alpenglow
2.) Spiral – Strung Out
3.) Thinner Than Water – Somah

The best part of this gig is pulling out old albums and finding gems like the Somah song, and remembering how much fun it was whenever Strung Out played Spiral. Thanks to Mike Luoma, on Monday I went to a new music venue, Arts Riot, that is in a building I worked in a long time ago. I met one of Burlington’s great artists while working there. Here is a song by the band that played Monday night, and we’ll talk about the rest on the other side.

4.) Song For Zula – Phosphorescent
5.) Check The Gravity – Wide Wail
6.) Cancer – Swale

When I worked at the Cheese Outlet, there was a sublet bakery and we sometimes used their equipment and chatted. I used to chat with Amanda Gustafson and when she told me she was joining a band, I had to go check out Wide Wail, again and again and again. They went away, so now I see her in Swale as often as I can. Next up is the next song on Maximum Soul Power.

7.) Staring Out My Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
8.) Hit – Blue Button
9.) I’m With You – Ninja Custodian

I love Ninja’s take on that song. BB are playing a show Valentines day at The Monkey House. There’s lots of other music that day, but I think I have to go that way. All I’ve got lined up this week is seeing Rush cover band Lotus Land at Higher Ground with my brother. Rough Francis always rock! I missed them last Saturday, when I went to Phoenix bookstore to listen to authors reading original sci-fi, including Luoma, who was the only one to read with each character’s voice. I then went to Club Metronome for Rock Lotto. Four bands hooked up at 10am and wrote songs and performed them at 6pm. Raph Worrick did a great job with his band.

10.) Hasta Manana Monsieur – Ray Fork
11.) If The Sea Won’t Rise – Sean Altrui

That’s just a great song from Sean. Well, hasta manana. 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 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
