I had a great time seeing music a week ago Wednesday. I woke up and wrote up three shows that I hand seen in the last week then took a short nap. I met up with Mary Wolcott around 6:30 and we headed over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen spent some time getting the sound right then I began my interview with Savage Hen that I played the next day on my local music radio show on WBKM. They played four heavy songs. Voodoo Revenge, The Wrong List, Clever Girl, and Local Lore are all powerful songs and we chatted about life in between. After we wrapped up the interview They played one more song that I will use for my annual Halloween show. The jump rope theme from Nightmare On Elm St was creepy and perfect. After that was wrapped up Mary and I headed out and went to Winooski

We arrived at The Monkey House and had missed Dino Bravo but were just in time to catch the set from When Particles Collide. Their set was short and sweet and loud and fast and hard. They opened with Ego then played a song about the base of the mountain. They rocked out Fight and Chris Viner sang the bass line at one point. Storm Cloud rocked hard and Sasha Alcott‘s voice and guitar playing were in fine form. They sang about pink and laying one’s body down and being my home. They closed the set with Constant Disaster and that was that. We hung out and chatted for a bit and I had to get one of the vampire giraffe with the cool sneakers shirts.

After that we headed out and Mary dropped me off then headed home. It was indeed a lovely day.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time Thursday August 31. You can stream it from this link: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Texas Flood – Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight I want to send my heart out to the people of Texas and encourage all of you to help if you can. Take your time and find a worthy charity since this will be going on for a long time. Let’s begin tonight with a recording from Robot Dog Studio from earlier this year.

1.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
2.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray
4.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca is pretty amazing and will be at Foam Brewers tomorrow night. I caught a set by Forest at Nectar’s last Saturday and really enjoy his music. Nice song about looking back from Jeremy and sweet song from Peter. OK, here is the next song on Loose Tooth, the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week.

5.) 45 – Clever Girls
6.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
7.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
8.) Nature – Madaila

Madaila are throwing a huge party all day Saturday and will block off Main street in front of Nectar’s and play with a bunch of other bands. You’ve just got to love them. I caught a set by Milton on Tuesday at Light Club Lamp Shop and his band the Grim Work are really good. Great song from David about the Paris attacks and how we can change from being alive to stardust in an instant. Clever are playing at The Monkey House tomorrow and always put on a great show, though there’s so many other shows happening that night too. OK, there is a cool after Madaila party at Nectar’s and this band will be there.

9.) Felon – SWALE
10.) The Perfect Map – Elephants of Scotland
11.) Constant Disaster – When Particles Collide
12.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS

Francis will be at the after show party at Nectar’s too and I’m very excited. Particles played a great version of that last night at the Monkey House. Elephants are playing a show in New Haven Vermont on Saturday with their new bass player Robert Gagnon. Hmmm, Swale. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live songs from Savage Hen. It’s another edition of WBKM live at Robot Dog Studio.

13.) Voodoo Revenge – Savage Hen
14.) The Wrong List – Savage Hen
15.) Clever Girl – Savage Hen
16.) Local Lore – Savage Hen

I want to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound so good and to thank Jack Kubera, Matthew Bryan Hagen and Jeremy Gartner for rocking so hard. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Comm To Space – Rough Francis
18.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
19.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland
20.) Elevator – Swale

I’m so psyched to see Swale and Francis and am thinking the timing might be too tight to get back from New Haven in time. Sigh. Particles played that one last night too. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
22.) The Meanest Thing I’ll Ever Write – Milton Busker
23.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
24.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls

Clever have been opening with that song and I’m so glad they did a Robot Dog session with me so I have a copy to play for you. Yet another great song from David. Milton’s albums sound different from his band but the songs have the same basic structure. They played a cool version of that on Tuesday. I love that Madaila song. I really like this song too.

25.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
26.) You’re Not Listening – Forest Gray
27.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
28.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton

I thought I’d end where I began with great songs from Peter and Jeremy. Forest played a cool version of that on Saturday at Nectar’s. Francesca writes such great songs. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I had a great time seeing music last Wednesday. I woke up and wrote up three shows that I hand seen in the last week then took a short nap. I met up with Mary Wolcott around 6:30 and we headed over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen spent some time getting the sound right then I began my interview with David Rosane & The Zookeepers that I played the next day on my local music radio show on WBKM. They played four lovely songs. Grandma, Sugar And Cream, Hope In The Dark, and What The Fuck Went Wrong are all powerful and gorgeous songs and we chatted about life in between. After we wrapped up the interview They played one more song that I will use for my annual Halloween show. Stardust For Dessert is about the Paris bombing attack and about how life can be transferred into stardust in an instant. After that was wrapped up the band headed out and Mary, Ryan and I chatted for a bit. Mary and I then headed out and went downtown.

We arrived at Red Square just as gneiss ended a set so we got drinks then chatted with the band. It was s short break then they got up to play. Naomi Galimidi and Johnny Meli alternated singing the songs as Jesse Cowan and Jacob Blodgett locked in the rhythm. They began with a song with a jazzy jam feel then played a song about seeing the light in your soul. They played a great version of Haze then played a funky song about moving on to the next scene. They played a song about walking in light that had a bit of a Bowie vibe. Piano In Every Room filled my heart and Lovely Day kept me smiling. A song about it being too much and never enough had a nice feel to it and they closed with an appropriate song called Comfort Me. Per the band it went Rumor (Debut) → Wish I Knew You, Daughters Eyes, Sophia Walks → Haze → Backdrop, Lovely Day, Too Much, Comfort Me.

After that we headed out and Mary dropped me off then headed home. It was indeed a lovely day.

Song before: What The Snowman Learned About Love – Stars

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Valentine’s Day was Tuesday so let’s begin tonight with a super talented artist who just released this new song.

1.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard
2.) Filling In The Blanks – Kelly Ravin
3.) Sleep – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
4.) Your Eyes – Forest Gray

I loved seeing Forest the one time I saw him and really want to see him again. Lowell and Kelly are super-talented. I love that new song from Francesca. OK, it’s time to debut a new feature that I hope to bring to the show on a regular basis. Let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio. Ryan Cohen has agreed to record this interview and song.

5.) Able To Breathe – Peter Burton
6.) So Subliminal – Peter Burton
7.) Let Me Be – Peter Burton

Hopefully, in the near future we will do more interviews and have bands play live at Robot Dog and broadcast them on this show. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

8.) Come Dance – Kat Wright Official
9.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
10.) 15 Steps – Maryse Smith
11.) Shepherd – Anais Mitchell

I dug deeper into the Young Man In America album and really liked that song. Great song from Maryse who used to play all over town. Linda is so talented and does such a great job promoting Girls Rock Vermont. Great song from Kat and the band. Last week I played a song from this band and wanted to go deeper into the album this week.

12.) Ocean’s Hourglass – Secret Heliotropes
13.) Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
14.) Powder – The New Siberians
15.) Goin’ Home – Eames Brothers Band

I love the bluesy sound of the Eames brothers. I’ve been playing a lot of new Siberians but that old song is pretty great too. I love that song from Will, who played around town in the 2000’s. Great song from Secret. This next band are playing tomorrow at the newly employed Switchback Brewing Company.

16.) I’m Thrilled – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
17.) This Melody – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
18.) Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft – Rue M.
19.) Golden Crutch – SWALE

Swale are playing on Saturday at a new coffee shop on Maple st called Maglianero so it will be fun to check out a new venue. Rue will play the Winter is a Drag ball that takes over Higher Ground this Saturday. Thanks for sponsoring us HG. Sarah and her band will rock the Rusty Nail in Stowe on Saturday and she always puts on a fun show. Phil and the band always put on a fun show too. This next band are playing at the show with Swale.

20.) Sharktopus – Villanelles
21.) Detective Norman – Sad Turtle
22.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
23.) Nothing In This – The Mountain Says No

Mountain will release their new album Golden Landfill at ArtsRiot tomorrow night. They just released a cool video of that song. The other three bands will play too, so it’s going to be a great show. So, you don’t need to be a musician and you don’t need to be a recording engineer like Ryan Cohen. You do need to find what works for you and let your passion drive you to accomplish what you want. In that way, we should all be like Ryan.

24.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No
25.) Slipstream – Black Ox
26.) Kaleidoscope – Arc Iris
27.) The Road – Anders Parker

Great rocker from Anders. Arc haven’t played town for a while but I’m sure they will be back soon. It was great seeing Cam Barrows last week so I wanted to play another song from his new band. Mountain have such a great new album coming out tomorrow. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
