From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It hit 96 degrees today and it’s a scorching night in the Queen City. Music is all around. Last night I got to see Swale play a great set in a classic Vermont setting. They played a bunch of great songs at Shelburne Farms including this one. They just made a devastatingly beautiful and horrible video for this cover song. This is a song to help remind us that the color of your skin and the shape of your face and body mean nothing. You are what you say and what you do and what you tolerate and what you don’t.

1.) Black Boys On Mopeds – SWALE
2.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik
3.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
4.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

What a great new song from the Siberians. I’ve got a couple more songs from it lined up later. Jeremy Gilchrist is playing Radio Bean tomorrow at 7 so I may catch a song or two at the end of his set if I’m out of work on time. Anna is playing at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow too which is cool. Swale were amazing and played an amazing version of that song yesterday. As always, I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. They have Upmhrey’s McGee in town tonight and Strangefolk in Jay this weekend. The Girls Rock VT August Showcase is happening Saturday if you want a glimpse of the future rock scene. OK, here is he next song from Giant Places.

5.) Take Your Gold Away – Lendway
6.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
7.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
8.) Make It Work – The New Siberians

Another great new song from Siberians new album Black, Blue and White. Aaron writes and sings such great songs. I love the new Milton album and that song has some intense energy. Hmmm, Lendway. It’s hot and there is no breeze and it’s summer in Vermont. Let’s celebrate it.

9.) Summertime – Peg Tassey MUSIC
10.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
12.) Breaking Camp – The New Siberians

Yup, the Siberians have a dancey pop song on the new album too. Such a fun song from Madaila who are going to take over downtown for a day sometime soon. It is summer and beach weather!!!! Even at night!! OK, let’s go back to the late ;80;s or early ’90’s for a classic song about a girl.

13.) Mary – Plan B
14.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
15.) Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
16.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Yup, the Siberians have a psychedelic/prog rock song on the new album. Great instrumental from the ’90’s prog rock band. That is a song from Elephants new album. I love Plan B. OK, let’s head to the indie zone.

17.) Life Of The Party – My first Days On Junk
18.) Hindsight 20/20 – Better Things
19.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
20.) Tenderness – The New Siberians

That one almost has a bit of a Ninja vibe. The New Siberians are made of Simon Plumpton on drums, who also plays with Invisible Homes, Ted Pappadopoulos on bass and vocals and assorted instruments, and Brendan Devitt on guitar and vocals. There are so many good songs on this new album of theirs. Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and rocked hard. Better are about to release a new album and 20/20 will be one of the songs. Junk are a band with Urian Hackney and played Waking Windows last spring. OK, let’s play another song from that late ’80’s early ’90’s period.

21.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
22.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
23.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
24.) Black, Blue And White – The New Siberians

That one from the Siberians has more of a classic rock sound so I thought it would sound good with the Speed song. Francis should have a new album out soon and I can’t wait. Great rocker from Pinhead. I got to see Caroline Marie play songs from her upcoming solo album last week, so let’s play one from her last album.

25.) The Feeling – Vedora
26.) Sweet Dreams – Bethany Conner Music
27.) Black 17 – The New Siberians

Great rocker from the Siberians. I love that beautiful song from Bethany. Hmmm, Vedora. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I had a great time seeing Vedora last Saturday at Radio Bean then had a great time seeing Phil Yates at the same place the next night. Phil has a new album coming out soon, No Need To Beg, and he kindly sent me the whole new album. He played a great version of this song solo and I love the full band version. This is Little French Earthquakes by Phil Yates on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) 40 Days – Better Things
3.) Papertrain – David L. Jarvis
4.) Rock And Roll Is My Weapon – Ninja Custodian

Last week was my 100th show and I missed some classics. Hopefully playing these three is a step towards completing that. OK, let’s play the last song on Many Things & Many Scenes.

5.) Many A Girl (reprise) – Joe Adler
6.) The Whole – Milton Busker
7.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz

I’ve heard of the Snaz but just recently got the album. It’s quite good. They are one of the bands representing Vermont at South By Southwest this year. Great new song from Milton. One of the area’s great performers is leaving for L.A. We wish you luck!

8.) The Night – Gregory Douglas
9.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
10.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music

Great song from Josh! That’s another song from Phil’s upcoming album. Nice song from Gregory. OK I’ve got Jason Cooley in the studio to play acoustic guitar and sing a few songs (we chat a little).

11.) My Bitter End Blue Button) – Jason Cooley
12.) How It Goes (Blue Button) – Jason Cooley
13.) MSP2 ROUGH FRANCIS) – Jason Cooley

Thanks Jason!!!!!!! OK, let’s head south a little to talk about the marvel that is the clay soil in Addison County. It can be heavy when wet and rock solid when dry, yet still, somehow things will grow in it.

14.) Addison County Clay – Dirtminers
15.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
16.) AV6 – Bad Smell
17.) My Atom Girl – Raph Worrick and the Dirtminers

That set goes out to Raph who has been playing music in Vermont for a long time, has gone to an international school in Pakistan (hence the last song of the set), has played in a couple of projects with Jane Boxall Percussion, is a fireman, is one of Phil’s Affiliates, and is an all around great guy. Thanks for doing what you do! OK, let’s play one more.

18.) Death Of A Barn Cat – Dirtminers
19.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
20.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids

That is such a tremendous version of that song from their new album Turn To Each Other. Great song from Rabbit. This next band will return to Burlington, or Winooski rather, when they play The Monkey House in April. I’m quite excited.

21.) Above My Ground – Landlady
22.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
23.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates and the Affiliates

Phil played a great version of that on Sunday. He, the Affiliates and Invisible Homes will play Nectar’s on Tuesday and I’m quite psyched! OK, let’s take a quick swing around New England.

24.) Seen Man – Endless Jags
25.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
26.) Uh Oh – Slowdim

I love that song from Slowdim. I’ve never seen them and would love it if someone brought them to town. Great song form Particles who travel quite a lot. I think Jags are playing Waking Windows this year. They, or some version of them, usually do. I want to congratulate Rebekah Whitehurst and Steve Tremblay on the birth of their daughter.

27.) Mine All Mine – Cave Bees
promo from Ted Pappadopoulos and the New Siberians
28.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
29.) Something I Drew – farm
30.) Gone With Eraser – Lendway

Beautiful song from a band who’s trademark is beautiful songs. Love the Farm song. Can’t wait for the new Siberians album. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
