Song before: Train In Vain – The Clash

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. What a crazy week, it’s been like summer and in the ’90’s and suddenly today it’s a chilly fall day. You’ve got to love Vermont. Let’s begin tonight with a band who are about to release a new album called Most Every Night.

1.) Get Loud – Near North
2.) Jesse – The Parts
3.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
4.) Wicked World – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

It’s so cool that the Breaks did the whole album of Sabbath songs in a surf style. I’m playing it all the way through song after song week after week. Cool song from Phil’s upcoming album. Great song from The Parts. Thanks Near North for sending me a copy of your new album on blue vinyl. It sounds great. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for another edition of WBKM Live At Robot Dog.

1.) Intro->Accidental Graveyard-> The Dead Shakers
2.) Taung Child -> – The Dead Shakers
3.) Superpowers -> – The Dead Shakers
4.) Medfield – The Dead Shakers

Thanks to Ryan Cohen from Robot Dog for making us all sound so great and thanks Burlington Beer Company for the libations. I especially want to thank The Dead Shakers for taking us on a rocking journey. OK, this next band have been playing around for ages and Mr. Charlie Frazier is a local legend. He has kept Vermont’s desire for the music of The Grateful Dead going for years.

5.) Intros -> – Blues for Breakfast, the band
6.) Scarlet Begonias -> – Blues For Breakfast
7.) Music Never Stopped – Blues For Breakfast

Vermont loves the music of the Dead and Mr. Charlie’s dedication to the blues. So, this weekend it was so hot I’m sure lots of people headed to the beach.

8.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
9.) Kindergarten – Lendway
10.) Sky – The Nancy Druids
11.) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone

Great song from Sean Toohey and Matt Hutton. Druids are Sean’s new band and they are playing Saturday at The Monkey House so go check them out. I miss Lendway. All last week was beach weather. It’s getting late in the year and darkness is coming earlier.

12.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
13.) Hope In The Dark – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
14.) Cheese Whiz Salad – Wren Kitz
15.) Queen City – Cave Bees

I’m psyched that the Bees have that recorded so I can play it for you. Burlington is The Queen City and I rock it as many nights as I can. I caught Wren Kitz and his band at Club Metronome last week and they were stunning. Lauren Costello plays in Wren’s band and in The Dead Shakers. Great songs from Andriana and David. Josh Shedaker plays in The Dead Shakers and in this next band. He just lost his grandmother so we want to send him lots of love.

16.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
17.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band
18.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
19.) Mary – Plan B

That’s a classic from the ’80’s. I love the truth in Joe’s song that we are all brothers and sisters and that we should take care of each other in times of pain and in times of joy. Great rockers from Seth and Dino. We all have a limited amount of time on this world so please spend it well.

20.) Precious Time – The Cush
21.) So They Say – The New Siberians
22.) 45 – Clever Girls
23.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

1.) What We Started – ROSEDALE
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Release Your Records – SWALE

Xiu will play tomorrow at Club Metronome and they sound pretty cool so I may have to check that out. I always know which new Swale song to play by checking and seeing which one has been running through my head all week. I hope that one gets stuck in yours, if you want. I had fun seeing Cones at The Monkey House and really liked that song and wanted to play it again this week. Cool song from Rosedale.

5.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath.

That’s a classic from Burlington’s ’90’s and still a great song. That’s a new classic from Rabbit. Great rocker from David and the band. Recently, The High Breaks took a few Black Sabbath songs and rearranged them into a surf style then put them out on Bandcamp. I hope you enjoy hearing the album over the next few weeks.

14.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
15.) Robots Improving Robots – The Tsunamibots

21.) Tenderness – The New Siberians
22.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No

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.

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.
