Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time and will go as follows.

Song before: Morrigan – Children in Paradise

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve got lots of great new music to play tonight but let’s begin with one of Vermont’s absolute treasures.

1.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
2.) Faded Movie Reel – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
3.) Wooden Heart – SWALE
4.) All Love – Kat Wright

That’s the next song from Kat’s album By My Side that I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. That’s a brand new song from Swale from their upcoming album There’s No One Here. Wow, what a beautiful song, and what about those horns? The Jeremy song was from the interview and recording we did a few weeks back at Robot Dog Studio. Great song by Aaron, who is a great guy, a great singer, a great songwriter and a fantastic guitar player. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful person in our community. Speaking of wonderful people in our community, this next band have been playing around for a while but don’t have anything recorded. We met up last night with Ryan Cohen at Robot Dog Studio and recorded this interview and they played these four songs.

5.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
6.) Just Another Day – The Nancy Druids
7.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
8.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids

I love the songs and the over the top guitar playing and can’t thank Ryan and the Druids enough for playing that. Also, I brought my brother Ken along and he had a great time watching it all happen. OK, let’s play some more rock and roll.

9.) East Jabib – REDadmiral
10.) Ain’t No Sunshine – Kiki’s Lost Nation
11.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
12.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

Great new song from Clever. I love the huge sound of cascade. Kiki come out now and then to rock us hard, and it was cool to see Andriana play that song the other night. Great political rocker from Admiral. OK, let’s keep rocking.

13.) Give Love – 1881
14.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
15.) Sorrow Of The Space Inside – Secret Heliotropes
16.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale

That song is so quiet and so loud and so gentle and so powerful and always blows me away when then play it live. I’m so happy I finally get to play it for you. That’s another cool song from Heliotropes album A Well Lit Room. Great song from Milton and same for 1881. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Journals – Senders
18.) This Ain’t The Summer Of Love – The Contrarian
19.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
20.) Burn – Dirty Blondes

I was listening to Pigs the other day and the imagery of burn and summer of love made me want to play those three together. Great song from Senders. OK, It’s my job to play local music but I just have to cheat now and then. There’s this french prog rock band called Children In Paradise who have been captivating me lately. The singer is about to release her solo album and is starting a crowdfunding campaign on April 1st. Since I play her music before and after my show all the time I thought I’d toss in one of her new songs.

21.) Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
22.) Be Like Ryan – The Mountain Says No
23.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
24.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

David sometimes lives in Vermont and sometimes lives in France so I thought that would be a fun way to bookend that set. Great song from Elephants. It sounds like they have new cool music coming for us soon. If you are near Jeffersonfille on Saturday, go check out Mountain!! Also, feel free to be like Ryan. Great song from Kat. Bonne Chance. OK let’s keep rocking.

25.) Jackbooted Thugs (Get All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
26.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
27.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
28.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn

Another great song from Aaron. Sean Toohey sings and plays guitar for The Nancy Druids and played in Telephone and played with Alice on that song. He and Ann Mindell used to play in Envy. Great song from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: The End Of The World – Skeeter Davis

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight is the 200th show that I’ve done on WBKM and it’s been a joy bringing you some of Burlington’s best music over the past 4 years. Tonight, I will pull out a whole bunch of classic songs. Let’s begin with one of my favorite songs from 2007.

1.) Star – The New Siberians
2.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
3.) Black Sheep – Kelly Ravin
4.) Green Doors – Lowell Thompson Music and Crown Pilot

Lowell and Kelly play in a band called The Welterweights and they play at Higher Ground on Saturday. Thanks for sponsoring our station Higher Ground! Andriana is amazing and I loved seeing her play that song last Friday. Hmmm, Siberians. OK, it’s time to play the next song on By My Side.

5.) Way With Words – Kat Wright
6.) Harvest Moon – Silver Bridget
7.) Unspoken – Anders Parker
8.) When She Sleeps – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Great gentle and powerful song from Peg. Anders is just amazing. Bridget are playing some enchanting shows these days. Yet another great song from Kat. This next band released this song last year and it quickly became a favorite. They are playing at The Monkey House on Saturday.

9.) The Bad Year – Carraway
10.) Paper Train – Dave Jarvis Band (Daffy Mal Yinkleyank)
11.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
12.) Popular Crowd – SWALE

Swale are playing great shows and are about to drop a new album on us. They have a Kickstarter going if you want to help out. Zola and Dave put on great shows in the ’90’s and Dave is now in Agent 802. Great song from Carraway. This band played around in the early 2010’s.

13.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
14.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
15.) Sun In The Sky – Ninja Custodian

Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s. Same for Ninja. I want to send Sun to anyone going through a rough time. It’s always been a source of strength for me. Doubtfire are out playing great shows and have a new EP coming soon. Hmmm, Claws. OK, here is another of my favorite songs.

17.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
18.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
19.) Bloodboy – Envy
20.) Black & Red – ROUGH FRANCIS

Francis are a tremendous band and have a new album coming soon. Envy played great shows in the ’90’s and one last year. Doll Fight rocked us in the 2000’s and Rabbit are rocking us now. This next song is one of the most intense songs that got played in town many times over the years.

21.) The Drone – The Cush
22.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No
23.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
24.) Bionic – The Red Telephone

Such a great song from Matt Hutton and Sean Toohey as they moved from Envy to RT. Casey Merlin Rae is the Contrarian and is amazing. Great song from Mountain’s first album and an absolute classic from The Cush. This next band are playing around as The High Breaks but did an album of Sabbath.

25.) Children Of The Grave – Surf Sabbath
26.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
27.) Grey Goo – Villanelles
28.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

SD come to town so often they are honorary Vermonters. Villanelles are playing around and that song always makes me happy. Great song from Vetica from the 2010’s and a rearranged classic from the Breaks from the last year or so. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.

5.) Feelin’ Strong – Kat Wright
6.) Spring – Madaila

8.) Paperclip Chains – Let’s Whisper

19.) Random Earth – Elephants of Scotland

Cool song from Elephants. Per John M Whyte they have a new album coming and a really cool sound. I can’t wait. CC were a classic ’90’s band. I love the Floyd feel of Edd. OK, this next artist just released this EP last week and it’s getting a lot of notice.

Spies In America, Blue Button, and Rough Francis at Higher Ground February 10, 2017   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music last Friday at Higher Ground. I arrived a bit early and soaked in the atmosphere as wisps of smoke danced above the sharply lit blue and red stage. I chatted with Cam Barrows for a bit but it was soon time for the show.

Spies In America opened with a set of classic punk and rocked hard. I missed the names of the guys playing bass and drums but they were joined by Jessica on guitar and vocals. She had a low slung guitar and reached down to hit the notes hard. Her voice was strong and loud without being a punk scream. Her stories between the songs kept the audience engaged and the music was nothing but furious fun. They opened with a song called Heroes and followed with a song about the patriarchy called This Art Fights Back. They played a Circle Jerks cover with a rewritten last verse then announced they would play a slow song. The drummer sang it and it was the fastest song of the set. A powerhouse version of Rebel Girl followed and I was in heaven. The next song was something about being better than this. They said they had only played a couple of shows in the last 13 years and weren’t really a band but had a new song for us anyway. It was called Conversion Therapy and it rocked hard with the same strong political message as the rest of their music. They closed the set with a Ramonesish rocker and that was that. They were just great.

Blue Button came on next and kept the place rocking. They played with a bit of a darker heavier sound which bodes well for the future. They opened with a new epic instrumental called Pissing At Flies then rocked out My Bitter End. The next five songs were new and fun so they should have a new album on the way. Their punk sound was brilliant and Eric Olsen ripped out some serious leads. James and Frankie held down the rhythm and Jason Cooley sang and played guitar. There was another instrumental and a song about a window symphony. I had heard City Hall Park before and it continues to grow on me. After seven songs they went back to their Love Angry album for a blistering version of We’re Closed. They eased up a bit for How It Goes then played their big Hit. They threw a cool breakdown section in the middle. They ended the set with a raucous Bullshit and that was that. Whether they are the classic quintet or a modified quartet of a band, they always put on a fun show.

With a tiny bit less punk fury and a bit more of a soulful sound ROUGH FRANCIS rocked the stage hard. They opened with some new songs that I did not know but thoroughly enjoyed. One was something about taking off your mask and showing me who you are, and one was about missing you and I didn’t think that I could. The fourth song was a rocking version of I-90 East. Songs with themes about how we’ve got to come together and don’t look back followed. A fun and heavy cover of Fortunate Son was a surprise then they continued to rock us with MSP2 and Blind Pigs. Songs about that lovely feeling that goes strait to your veins and getting out while you can followed. They eased up a bit for a searing Staring Out The Window then played songs about coming together in the darkness and every day. They started a slow jam that built and built and built until it exploded into Comm To Space and that capped the show. They came back for a well demanded encore with a crazy punk song and capped the night with Not A Nice Guy which they dedicated to the crazy bullies in Washington DC.

I headed out pretty quickly after the show but was thoroughly sated by all the great music I was lucky enough to enjoy that evening.

Song before: Joan Crawford – Blue Oyster Cult

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been another cold and warm and clear and snowy week in Vermont. That does not stop us from doing what we do. I want to dedicate this first song to Rich Haskell and anyone who likes to get in their car and drive, no matter what.

1.) Driving All Alone – Danny LeFrancois
2.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
3.) Silence Kills – Secret Heliotropes
4.) I’ll get Wise – Anachronist

Great song from the central Vermont band. I’d seen Heliotropes listed on show bills but have never seen them. That may have to change. Great songs by David and Danny. OK, last week I finished the last song on Shovel Down so now I need to play a new album, song after song, week after week until it’s done. Let’s begin with the title song from the new album by Kat Wright Official

5.) By My Side – Kat Wright
6.) Last Love – Myra Flynn Music
7.) Secret – Madaila
8.) Freak Out Friday – Rue M.

Rue pop up now and then to help us dance dramatically. Great song from Madaila. Myra is a true treasure. So are Kat and the band, as you will hear over the next several weeks. OK, let’s keep the flow going.

9.) Unveiled – Pours
10.) Strings – Binger
11.) Gazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
12.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae used to sing in bands and write about music in town and was just back a couple of weeks ago to sing for the Rocketsled reunion. He was good friends with Sandy Pearlman and just put out an album of Blue Oyster Cult covers. That was one of them. Great new song from Mountain from the upcoming Golden Landfill album. Great songs from Binger and Pours. Since I just played a cover song, I think I will continue for the next set.

13.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
14.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
15.) Is It My Body? – Peg Tassey MUSIC
16.) ETI (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) – The Contrarian

I just had to play another Contrarian song. Classic cover of the Alice Cooper song by Peg. Ninja always did some fun covers. That’s a great take on Pink Floyd. Great cover of the Rolling Stones song by Bridget. So, The Snaz just released a new album called Sensitive Man.

17.) Spit N’ Fluff – The Snaz
18.) We’re Closed – Blue Button
19.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
20.) This Ain’t The Summer Of Love – The Contrarian.

The Francis song has the line about I thought it was the summer of love so I had to play another Contrarian song. Francis will play Higher Ground tomorrow and Blue Button will open. Snaz played there last week. Thanks HG for sponsoring us at WBKM.ORG. This next band are from Montreal but will return to The Monkey House on Sunday.

21.) Epic – Laureate
22.) Room To Grow – The Red Summer Sun
23.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
24.) Rejected – Black Rabbit

The last time I saw Laureate Rabbit opened the show. Doom and Red Summer are playing with them on Sunday. OK, let’s go back to the 1990’s.

25.) Sunflower Street – David Jarvis
26.) Who Do You Love? – The Red Newts
27.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue
28.) God On Our Side – Wire Train

Back in the early ’80’s Wire Train came and played Hunt’s a few times and I had a great time seeing them. That’s a great cover of the Dylan song. Cricket are just so amazing. I should have played an original Newts song but thought that was fun, and I’m playing covers anyway. They are at Sidebar tonight. Great song from Dave. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM can be heard from our Facebook page link, or over the air. It will run from 9-11pm this evening and will go as follows:

Song before: No Plan – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking the wonderful Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. With the upcoming change in Presidents a lot of us are feeling anxiety. Hopefully, tonight’s show will confront that anxiety and help steel our nerves for what is to come.

1.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand
2.) I know Right – The Mountain Says No
3.) Six Month Winter – Suburban Samurai
4.) Lion Tamer – Carraway

Now that the lions will soon be in charge we are all going to need to learn to become lion tamers, in a loving caring way. Great new song from Suburban. They played at The Monkey House last night. That’s a great new song from Mountain from their upcoming album Golden Landfill. That’s an early mix but sounds so cool. Great song from Grand. OK, let’s play the next song on Shovel Down, the album I’m playing all the way through song after song week after week.

5.) The Violent Strain Of My Broken Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) The Mime – Joe Adler
7.) The Road – Anders Parker
8.) Machu Picchu – The Mountain Says No

Wow, they really had to climb the heights to create that one. Thanks Mountain! Anders played an amazing show at ArtsRiot last Friday. His version of that song was stunning. It’s pretty great on album too. Joe played at Radio Bean a week ago Monday and reminded me how great that song is. Great song from Seth. OK, with lots of fake news about and an incoming President who speaks in vague generalities and when he does cite facts, is usually wrong, it’s pretty scary and makes this song sound appropriate.

9.) Barbie’s Plastic Army – REDadmiral
10.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Get Out Of Your Own Way – Kelly Ravin

Great song from Kelly’s new Bonneville album. He and his band the Welterweights opened for Anders last Friday. Doubtfire played at the Monkey last night. Rabbit nicely sing about the countdown to meltdown. Sadly appropriate song from Admiral. OK, here’s another Anders song. He wrote it about the W Bush years but is seems it will be appropriate again soon.

13.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
14.) You Say You’re Alive – The Mountain Says No
15.) Devil’s Right Hand – Swillbillie
16.) 8 Long Years – 1881

Great new song from 1881’s Action EP. Hopefully, it will be four. Swillbillie will play at Nectar’s on Saturday. Another stunning new Mountain song. What a great rocker from Anders. OK, let’s play another new Mountain song. I’ve been waiting a long time to be able to play this one.

17.) Glazerbeam – The Mountain Says No
18.) Waterlanding – SWALE
19.) American Proxy – The Hero Cycle
20.) The Possibility Shop – The Red Telephone

No matter what happens in the next few years, there will be tons of possibilities. Let’s consciously make decisions to try and make choices that are good for us and our communities at all times. Great song from Hero. Swale are playing with a ton of other local bands at The Monkey House tomorrow. Everyone is playing country songs so that should be fun. I love that Mountain song. OK, as we stand at the abyss of a new administration this song seems appropriate.

21.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
22.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
23.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS
24.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC

That is a great song about lashing out at an idea that seems to be coming back into power. Great song from Francis about standing up to racism. Sadly still appropriate song from Death. Breaks are playing at Foam Brewers tomorrow. This song is about fighting for the American Dream.

25.) American Dream – Doll Fight
26.) Upstream – The New Siberians
27.) Back Home – Eastern Mountain Time
28.) Babies To War – Milton Busker

Great song from Milton. Yes, let’s not send our babies to war anymore. He and his band The Grim Work played at Light Club Lamp Shop last weekend. Eastern are at the Monkey tomorrow. That’s a great new song from them. Great songs from Siberians and Doll. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM 107.1FM will run from 9-11pm tonight. You can listen over the air on both sides of the Champlain Valley or from the Facebook link above. It will go as follows:

Song Before: The Stars (Are Out Tonight) – David Bowie

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I want to begin by thanking Higher Ground for sponsoring us. They have New Year’s Eve and the night before New Year’s Eve shows with Madaila coming up soon. Let’s begin tonight with a gorgeous song from a band who played a bunch of great shows in 2016 and should play a bunch more in the new year.

1.) Love Me Tender – Silver Bridget
2.) Can We Go There? – Bethany Conner Music
3.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
4.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants put out a terrific album this year called The Perfect Map. Hana played a great show for us this year in Burlington. Bethany is a cool performer with a ton of potential in her future. Bridget are so cool. OK, here is the next song from Shovel Down.

5.) The Snake – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) No Match For Her – The Decentz
7.) You – Screaming Broccoli
8.) The Invisibles – Black Rabbit

That’s from a couple of years ago but Rabbit are rocking hard and strong and should have a great 2017. Broccoli and Decentz are from Burlington’s early ’90’s and early ’80’s and helped create the scene we have now. That’s quite the rocker from Seth and the band. This next song may be my favorite from 2016.

9.) Black 17 – The New Siberians
10.) Last Night – Carraway
11.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
12.) Drug Me Up – Ninja Custodian

Ninja’s music always drags me up when I’m down. Doubtfire put out a great EP this year. Carraway and the Siberians put out tremendous albums this year. This next song is an older one but the band got back together for a show this year.

13.) Finger Prison – Envy
14.) Msp2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
15.) Naomi’s Back – Fire The Cannons
16.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn

That’s a classic from the ’90’s. Cannons kept us rocking through the early 2000’s. That’s a newish one from Francis. I can’t wait for the new album!! Hmmm, Envy. This woman rocked the ’90’s and is still helping music be made.

17.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC
18.) Papertrain – David Jarvis
19.) Ex-Files – Better Things
20.) The Art Of Giving In – 1881

That’s a song from the brand new and brilliant album Action. Great song from Better who released that earlier this year. Dave’s song is from the ’90’s but he’s back in town making music. It’s always great to hear Peg. This band will light up Higher Ground with fun this weekend.

21.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
22.) Come Dance – Kat Wright
23.) Piano In Every Room – gneiss
24.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

That’s a song from my favorite non-local album from this year. Besides, SD come and visit us often. Piano is such a comforting song. Great song from Kat’s new album. Same for Madaila. OK, let’s go back a couple of years and rock.

25.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No
26.) Willow II – Tyler Daniel Bean
27.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
28.) Inner Revolution – Adrian Belew

Everyone is excited that Adrian will play ArtsRiot in March. Waylon always put on great rock shows. Great new song from Tyler. Mountain rock hard and will have a new album soon. I feel like I’ve been moving through time tonight so let’s play this one.

29.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
30.) The Ballad Of Tom Smith – The Skamaphrodites
31.) Shy Spiders – Villanelles

Spiders is one of the great songs from 2016. I want to thank Daniel Bolles for his many years as music editor. Thanks for being such a champion for music in our town, and for taking me seriously. I hope your 2017 brings great new adventures. Well, I’ll be off next week, but I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again the week after next.
