Song before: Bel Air – The Church

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Last week I played the last song on MSP3 Counterattack, so now it’s time to begin playing a new album all the way through, song after song, week after week. Let’s begin with an album that will be released Saturday night at Light Club Lamp Shop.

1.) The Basement Song – Milton Busker And The Grim Work
2.) One Of A Kind – Adam Rabin
3.) See – Abby Sherman
4.) Presence – Satori Bob

Satori used to play around town many years ago, and Robert Gagnon from the band, plays around town all the time. Cool song from Abby. Something about that reminded me of Presence so I had to play them back to back. Cool new song from Adam. Great song from a great album from Milton. OK, get yourself in a relaxed state and let’s get ready to head over to Robot Dog Studio

5.) Sky Of Words->Jam->Georgie
cool conversation
6.) White Wall->Jam->Shrouds

I want to thank Wren Kitz and the band for that amazing performance. Wow. Thanks to Ryan Cohen for making everything sound so great and making this whole thing possible. Thanks to Sam Mark for helping out and for Phoebe Zorn and Chrusty Barnacles for the video work. OK, are you ready to head back to a normal place, or do you want to keep floating for a while. I hope it’s the latter.

7.) Mary’s Line Into This View – Ouzkxqlzn
8.) Dolphins In Disguise – Dolphin Trainer
9.) Listen To The Birds – Rob Voland
10.) Falter – Julia Caesar
11.) Take Your Gold Away – Lendway

I miss Lendway. Great song from Julia. I thought it would be fun to highlight the solo projects from Rob, Ross, and Lauren Costello. OK, a long time ago in Burlington, there was a band called the Halogens. Here’s a brand new song.

12.) Leave Me Low – Jason Halogen
13.) Guitsophrenic – 8084
14.) Pick Up Your Clothes – The New Siberians
15.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn
16.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT

Great song from Dino. They will be at Finnegan’s on Saturday. I was listening to the Siberians song and it reminded me of Out so I had to play them back to back. 8084 have a show on Saturday at ArtsRiot called Love Not Hate. I’m sure they would love your positive vibes if you stop in. Cool new song from Jason. OK, next week is Thanksgiving and I will be off. I’ll see you the week after.

17.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I had a great time seeing music Monday night at Radio Bean. I got out of work at 7:30 and rushed downtown. I got in and settled and Ouzkxqlzn began to play. She lit into a cool drone and added a little voice and guitar and cello and recorded conversations and sounds she has found in the world. The mix was dizzying and she let recordings of people speaking guide the show. Themes such as explorations of performance art and societies ability to look the other way and let rapists be found not responsible cut into the listener’s soul. She played a story of a woman who had been raped then carried a mattress with her everywhere until the boy could be held accountable, but it did not sound like that ever happened. This was woven around Yoko Ono’s cutting show where she sat on stage and members of the audience came up to cut a piece of her clothing off. One voice from the drone wondered how anyone could let someone do that. Another voice from the drone confronted Senator Jeff Flake in an elevator, that seemed like it had some effect but eventually fell on deaf ears. The piece ended on a discussion of suffering and performance art. It’s always an amazing time when Lauren Costello plays.

Up next Wren Kitz took the stage. Joined by Lauren on cello, Rob Voland on drums and a cool bass player, Wren lit into the set with an off-kilter pop song about the unexplained. They rocked it out for a while then fell into a cool musical flow. They let that go for a bit and it solidified into a pop song about being the master of the world. They stopped and chatted for a bit then dove back into the music. They played a long cool piece about being unaware then wrapped it up. I love Wren’s sense of where to take music and loved every moment of the show.

Up next Rob Voland moved into the front man role and Wren moved to the drums. A different bass player joined them. The set up was longer than ideal but they sounded pretty cool when they got into it. Some of the high frequencies were a bit hard to handle, at the extreme volume, but the songs were cool and the playing was great. They opened with a song that had a Wren rock vibe then fell deep in exhaustion. They played a drone with a western vibe, but with more screeches. They closed with a long slow heavy jam that got more and more intense until Rob was shredding heavily as it crashed to a conclusion. I’m not sure if it was a little too much or perfect, but it certainly was something.

After the chaos of Voland’s set I popped over to Light Club Lamp Shop and settled into the soothing flow of Plastique Mammals. They are a keys/bass drums duo who play liquid instrumentals. They create fun loops to get a full sound then just let the music flow in happy ways. I only caught a couple of their songs, and they put me in a happy mellow place.

There was noise coming from the Bean as Mammals wrapped up their set. I headed back to the Bean and rocked out to The Drunk Monkeys. They are from Boston and play straight up rock. The first song I caught was a slow bluesy jam with a ripping sax. I think it was called Sundays and rocked out at the end. They had a rocking Dead sound on Elementary #9 then had us stand to fall. The next song was louder and had a crazy rock jam at the end that made me happy. They sang a song about shadows in the moonlight then sang about a trap door. They wrapped the set with a sultry ballad called Atlantis that became a sultry jam at the end. They were a lot of fun.

After their set I headed out quickly and took the short walk home.
