intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I got to see a ton of great music in town last week and there is a lot coming up this week. I want to begin by mentioning that Saturday is the Radio Bean birthday party, so they will have about 100 bands play throughout the day. I recommend stopping in. OK, let’s begin with an artist who played there last week.

21.) Freak Out Friday – Rue M.
22.) Sea Of Awakening – Revibe

Song before: Lying Eyes – The Eagles

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of music. I missed you last week. I was on vacation and saw and bought a ton of music. Let’s begin with an artist I saw last Thursday at Ruach HaMaqom Synagogue.

1.) Intro/May 2017 – Adrienne Cooper Smith
2.) Oak Tree – The Beerworth Sisters
3.) Stars – The Zii Trees

Trees are so cool. I caught them Thursday at Radio Bean. I saw Julia Beerworth play with Josh Glass a couple of weeks ago and loved her voice and guitar playing. Adrienne rocked the electric banjo at the synagogue. More about the band that headlined the night soon. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live performance by Ivamae.

4.) Veil – Ivamae
5.) Changes – Ivamae
6.) Underheard – Ivamae
7.) Honey Bee – Ivamae

Wow, she is so amazing. Thanks to Ryan Cohen for making the sound so great and to Phoebe Zorn for the camera work. Check out the video for Underheard on YouTube. OK, so last Thursday the mighty Julia Caesar released their album Heavy Flow at the synagogue. Here is a song from it. There will be more later.

8.) Crimson – Julia Caesar
9.) Like Beads – Anachronist
10.) Pillar Of Truth – Lucy Dacus
11.) Dumb Smile – Clever Girls

Clever and Lucy played amazing shows at ArtsRiot a week ago Sunday. Anachronist played a great version of that one the Friday before at the Tarrant Gallery by The Flynn. Julia are just amazing. OK, this next artist visited town once and then morphed into a new band. I’m hoping for a return trip soon.

12.) Veratrum – Piqued
13.) Frosty Pink skies – Miku Daza
14.) Ego – When Particles Collide
15.) Falter – Julia Caesar

Yet another great Julia song. Particles could be anywhere. I thought that song would fit well in that set. Cool song from Miku’s album It’s A Fairy Tale, and a lovely song form Piqued. This next artist is lighting Vermont media on fire with their tour to support local libraries.

16.) Enemy – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
17.) L Ron Hubbard – Humble Hero
18.) Sugar Rush – Miku Daza
19.) Nothing Important – Doom Service

That’s the next song from the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. I love the cosmic nature of that one. Cool song from Miku that we recorded a few weeks back at Robot Dog Studio. Humble finally released that song that is so fun, so I had to get it on the air. Great song from David. OK, let’s keep rocking.

20.) Earthquake – ROUGH FRANCIS
21.) Another Day Closer To Nothing – Grand
22.) F*ck the Alt-Right – Tetsuo
23.) Brave Coward – Green Chapel
24.) Sonic Boom – Bee Bee Sea

BBS came over from Italy and played a show at The Monkey House that I’m still reeling from. Chapel, Tetsou, and Grand played a killer show at Nectar’s a week ago Monday and all of those songs were played. Great new song from Francis! OK, let’s ease up a bit and jam out.

25.) Sideways – Binger
26.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys
27.) Hear Me Now – Julia Caesar
28.) Julius Caesar – The New Siberians

I just had to do the Julia Julius thing. I caught a couple of songs from Brayden Patrick Baird from the Torys last Friday. Binger are everywhere but will come back to us soon.

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

Song Before: Heroes (live) – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Spring is bringing wave after wave of flowers. The lilacs opened up this week.

1.) Look At The Lilacs – Binger
2.) Push Me Over – Johnny Wanser
3.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
4.) Freeway – Totally Submerged

Submerged play all over Vermont all the time. If you like that song, keep your eyes open. I love that Madaila song. Mike Luoma just sent Johnny’s music my way. I thought it would go nice with Madaila. Great song from Binger. OK, here is the next song on Engine.

5.) Visions – Kelly Ravin Music
6.) Only Human – The Brand New Luddites
7.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
8.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids

OK, this next band will be all over Vermont in July and August. They will be playing shows at local libraries to raise funds and awareness for how they are becoming local community centers. They also have a new album coming soon.

9.) Today Is Mine – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
10.) Real World – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
11.) Enemy – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
12.) Ba Doom! – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

I love the line about how because of you I’m a feminist. That always gets attention when they play it live. Those are all great songs and you can hear them in a library near you soon. The Book Of Zoo is coming to you. OK, so last night I went out to The Monkey House and lucked into part of a set by a band from Albany.

13.) Nothing’s New – The Backseat Bullets
14.) Once More With Apathy – Mr. Doubtfire
15.) S. Fiction – Blowtorch
16.) Venus In Spurs – Barbacoa

Those last two will be at Radio Bean on Friday. Another band is playing too but I’ll mention them later. Doubtfire put on a great show last night and Bullets were a total joy. I’m so glad I caught them. This next band will be at ArtsRiot tomorrow.

17.) Shifty – The High Breaks
18.) Thank You – 8084
19.) Curveball Dreamer – Zola Turn
20.) If Only I Was Lonely – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

I love that Phil song from the new Party Music album. Classic from Zola. 8084 have been playing for many years and will rock Higher Ground on Saturday. So Mike Luoma has been helping WBKM sound great and has been doing a show at noon. He took today and Friday off to follow his other passion. He writes science fiction novels and graphic novels and is at Balticon this weekend. I’d like to dedicate this to Mike.

21.) Science Fiction – Hana Zara
22.) Once Upon – Vedora
23.) We Are The Beautiful Sunsets – The Cush
24.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Those are all incredible songs. OK, let’s take a nice long ride in the rain.

http://wbkm.org/

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time Thursday September 14. It can be streamed from the WBKM Facebook page and will go as follows.

Song before: Fireworks – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. My heart goes out to the people of Florida. Please help out if you can. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the show. They will bring the giant GPN festival to the waterfront this weekend. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of bands who played at The Monkey House last night.

1.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Unveiled – Pours
4.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle

Turtle play cool instrumentals with Seinfeld references and are always fun. It was cool to see Chris Shar of Pours at the Landlady show last week but was even cooler to hear him play drums with the Shakers. Cones are from Los Angeles and we are so lucky to live in a town where they can just come and play on a Wednesday night. The Shakers haven’t recorded their full psychedelic sound yet but Child hints at it. More about that in a couple of weeks. OK, it’s time to play the last song on Loose Tooth and I will have to pick a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week.

5.) We Tried – Clever Girls
6.) I Like Flowers And I’m Not Afraid To Say It – Peg Tassey MUSIC
7.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
8.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara

Hana just successfully funded her new album with a Kickstarter campaign and I can’t wait to hear it. It was cool to see Abbie Gail from Hammydown play with Caroline Rose at the Madaila on Main show recently. I got to go to Ottawa and see the mosaiculture and to go to Montreal to see the botanical gardens this week so the Peg song jumped to mind. Great song and EP from Clever Girls. I”m sure they will have something new soon since they have lots of songs in their set that are not recorded yet. Last Saturday I saw a few classic bands at Higher Ground and one who have been playing around but I had just not seen. Here is one of their songs.

9.) Co2U Later – The Tsunamibots
10.) Projector – Vetica
11.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons played in the early 00’s and rocked us hard. Starlight were a cool ’90’s band. Vetica played some great shows in the 10’s and the Tsunamibots are putting on fantastic shows now. OK, let’s reach even further back into Burlington’s past.

13.) Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights) – The N-Zones
14.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
15.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
16.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old and Insane Donkey

That was a band that Seth Yacovone put together to play some Neil Young songs. Ninja used to play cool covers back in the late ’80’s at Nectar’s and other places. Bridget played last Saturday and are playing the next couple of Saturday’s at Nectar’s. N-Zones played back in the early ’80’s or late ’70’s. Burlington has a lot of great original music but we do like covers too. OK, this next band will make a rare appearance in town at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow at 7:30.

17.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby
18.) Say It – Anachronist
19.) A Company Man – Carraway
20.) Drug Laws – SWALE

I love the way that song continuously rocks. Such a fun song from Carraway. Great songs form Anachronist and Lindbergh. So, last Friday there were a bunch of cool bands who played at the Art Hop but heavy rain wiped out most of the outside shows. This band saw a break in the weather, got set up and began to play as the rain came back. This was the only song of their set and they are such troopers for even playing that one.

21.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
22.) Good Times – Grand
23.) Shark – Greaseface
24.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
25.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim

Sink will play a show this Saturday. Ask them for the detains since it’s an underground show. Doubtfire and Grand played a great show at Radio Bean Monday night. Grease are playing at the Monkey House on Saturday. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
27.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians
28.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
29.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT

Those are four of many the great songs to come out of the Burlington scene. 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 my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a bit of a regal feel and highlighted a lot of the music from last week and this coming weekend. It was also seasonally appropriate, even if the weather wasn’t.

Songs before: God Save The Queen/Keep Yourself Alive – Queen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a super warm, maybe in the 70’s, day and it’s warm this evening. A lot of people are out and about and enjoying the night. Today is the 5th of November, the day Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament. As we have evolved over the years, there is less of a need for such drastic action. In fact, all we have to do is elect reasonable and compassionate and smart people, and we could have a great government. Maybe one day. Tonight, let’s begin with Burlington itself. It was founded in 1865 and was a major lumber mill port that brought wood from Quebec to the eastern US. Early on, it was called the Queen City of New England. Let’s begin with some Burlington music about queens.

1.) Rock ‘n Roll Queen – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) We Rock Out 2 Queen – Rue Mevlana
3.) Queen Of Hostility – Doll Fight
4.) I’d Hate To Be Me – Queen Tangerine

Some of the regal music from Burlington. It’s interesting to see how we have evolved. We began by needing a strong leader, and have moved to a system were we can govern ourselves more and more. If we are cool about it, we have a lot of potential. OK, last Friday I caught a ton of cool music. I started with this band, although the set I caught was them covering the Elvis Costello album Blood and Chocolate. This is the next song from No Need To Beg.

5.) Drinking For Two – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
6.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
7.) Singing – Arc Iris
8.) King Grifter – The Mountain Says No
9.) I Think I’m Turning Into A Robot – Wave of the Future

I began the night at The Skinny Pancake to see Phil’s first set, then hustled to Light Club Lamp Shop to catch Maryse Smith‘s stunning set. Arc Iris followed and were amazing as always. I hustled over to Finnegan’s and missed Mountain, but caught some of Wave’s wonderful set, including that fun song. There’s a fun show at Finnegan’s tomorrow with some of the guys in Rough Francis playing as Aspero Siacos, and a couple of other cool bands, like this one.

10.) Hungry – Heavy Plains
11.) Destroying Everything They See – Blue Button
12.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

It will be interesting to see what AS sound like, but other two will certainly be killer. Saturday is the day Radio Bean has it’s birthday. As always they will have bands play from 8am to 2am, with about 15 minutes per band. This next band always kick it off.

13.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
14.) Toejam – The Toes
15.) The Mime – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger
16.) One More Sunset – Violet Ultraviolette

I’m psyched to see all of those bands play. I’m psyched to see these next ones too.

17.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles
18.) Gonna Stay Up All Night Long – The Eames Brothers
19.) Pauses – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
20.) Crow King – Binger

I’m sorry I missed Binger playing the Scooby Doo show last weekend but am psyched to catch up with them this Saturday. All of those bands rocked, but there will be a lot of music played that day. Here are some of the mellower bands that will play.

21.) Guitar – Michael Chorney and Hollar General
22.) Windy Pines – Kat Wright and Brett Hughes
23.) Matter Of Time – Eric George
24.) Puff The Magic Dragon – Linda Bassick

I’m not sure if Linda is playing kids songs or older people’s songs or both, but it will be fun to find out. I may have to catch Eric for the first time. Kat and Brett always sound nice. Sweet song from Michael. This next song is by Caroline Marie, who has played every Bean Birthday.

25.) Once Upon – Vedora
26.) The Night Syd Barret Died – Colin Nicholas Clary
27.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
28.) The Next Instead – Swale

I’m thoroughly excited to see Swale already, is it Saturday yet?. Kat and the band are always great. I finally got the see Emily play joke in Barret. I bet he plays that one, what with the Radio Bean references and all. Killer song from Caroline. Songs 13 to 28 are just a tiny hint of what that day will sound like. Is it Saturday yet??? OK, let’s end where we began, with another song from the Queen herself, then I will say goodbye.

29.) I Remember/The Jam – Peg Tassey
30.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from doing my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. I highlighted some of the great music in town last week, some of the great music coming up this week, some music to say goodbye and some music to say thank you.

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a beautiful night in the Queen city and there is a ton of stuff happening this weekend. Grace Potter is filling the waterfront with killer local and national bands Saturday and Sunday. It’s Pride week. The Art Hop is happening in the South End. Before I get to all the great stuff coming up, I want to mention a show I caught last week. Rue Mevlana put on a truly stunning spectacle of stage and music. They wove casual and classic stories with a hypnotic light and image show. Here is a hint of what the music was like.

1.) Hermaphroditus – Rue Mevlana
2.) Empty Frequency – Rue Mevlana
3.) Magenta Man – Rue Mevlana

That show was beyond words, which is unusual for me. OK, Grace is bringing a few national bands this weekend, but here are some wonderful local bands who will be there too.

4.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
5.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
6.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz
7.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains

Four really cool songs from four really cool bands who are all going to play great shows this weekend on the waterfront. Tomorrow at the Art Hop these bands are playing at Arts Riot and nearby.

8.) Coming Down Again – Waylon Speed
9.) See You At Eight – Villanelles
10.) Staring Out The Window – ROUGH FRANCIS
11.) Let’s Go Crazy – Prince

I saw Prince once (thanks Kevin Joseph Ryan) and he was amazing, Unfortunately, Prince is not actually playing the Art Hop. However, a bunch of local musicians, with Craig Mitchell singing, will play a show called Operation Prince. It should be a wild time. The other three are playing at Arts Riot and that will be a great time as well. A little farther down Pine st, these next three bands are playing at Zero Gravity Brewery. The singer for the first band was also part of the Rue show.

12.) Toejam – The Toes
13.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
14.) Alienation – Black Rabbit

Black Rabbit have a new drummer and are ready to rock us hard. BB rock hard too. The Toes are so delightfully quirky, and rock hard too. I’ve seen this next band several times in town and am always blown away. They are a killer rock band and two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. I’m so psyched for their show next Wednesday at The Monkey House.

15.) Intro – Slingshot Dakota
16.) May Day – Slingshot Dakota
17.) Wave – Slingshot Dakota
18.) Grudge – Slingshot Dakota

I just saw that song on bandcamp and really liked it. Wave is a killer song from the first album. The first two are from the second. I can’t wait to see you Carly Comando and Tom Patterson!! OK, it’s time to play the last song on the stunning album JV. I guess I have to start a new album next week.

19.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
20.) I Don’t Know How To Love Him – Jesus Christ Superstar
21.) Superstar – Jesus Christ Superstar

The Mountain Says No are playing the Art Hop on Saturday, so if you like that song, Go Check Them Out! I played the two songs from Jesus Christ Superstar in honor of my father, who died suddenly on Tuesday. That was, maybe, the only music that we both really loved. It’s hard knowing that he will never be there again, while wondering where, if anywhere, he is now. It’s been a long few days, but there have been so many wonderful people sending good thoughts that I can feel the love being sent to me and my mom and brother. I want to just play some of the music that has inspired me and made me feel love. Do not be offended if your music was not played, I’m just grasping for any lifelines that I think of. I don’t have enough time in the show to grasp even a third. I love you all for how you have helped and know we will all be there for anyone going through such a tough time. I want to start with a song from a man who’s love even radiates through social media posts. Last week I saw Joe Adler, who recently lost his father, talk about seeing a bird every time someone has died, and feeling like their soul might be in the bird. I don’t have the song Little Bird to play, so let’s start with the above mentioned, love radiating, Aaron Flinn.

22.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
23.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
24.) Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone – Kiki’s Lost Nation
25.) New Appreciation For Sunshine – The Cush

I want to thank you indeed. Thanks for all the kind words, all of you. Life is full of joy and pain and dad always wanted to help the downtrodden. I think this song is highly appropriate.

26.) Joyless – Swale
27.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
29.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone

I always got such a timeless feeling from that song. Thanks Matt Hutton. Thanks Phil Yates, and OMG thank you Raph Worrick. Thanks Rebecca Rogers, Diane Sullivan, and make sure you send lots of love to Ornan McLean and his family, because they need it too! Amanda Gustafson, Eric Olsen, you’ve been fantastic. OK, here is another song that I’ve just always loved and really want to play.

30.) Once Upon – Vedora
31.) Sequoia 2 – Binger

I just love that song too. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I always play a Fish song after my show, because I love his music and his ideas and his fantastic way of expressing them through his very intense lyrics. This week I just got an album I’ve been waiting for and just love this song. I don’t have to be up early so I can hang out a bit later tonight, so let’s go.

Song after: Empire Of The Clouds – Iron Maiden
The Great Unraveling – Fish
