Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM will run from 9-11pm Thursday August 3. It can be streamed at WBKM.ORG or from the Facebook page link above. It will go as follows.

Song before: Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding – Elton John

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with the first song on Swale’s new album There’s No One Here.

1.) I’ll Start By Opening – SWALE
2.) Californ-i-A – Ryan Ober
3.) Sailor – Ethan Azarian Music
4.) Wilderness (?) – Lindsay and Jeff
5.) Poem For Torin/Ethan Is Stoned – Peg Tassey MUSIC

It was great to have Ethan Azarian back in town last Saturday. He brought Lindsay and Jeff and Kendra from Austin and they played Light Club Lamp Shop. Peg got up and played Ethan Is Stoned with Ethan. It was a great moment in Burlington music history. That’s a new song from Ryan who will be at Foam Brewers on Friday. Great stuff from Swale. OK, let’s play the next song on the Action EP.

6.) Give Love – 1881
7.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
8.) Elevate – Breakfast for the Boys
9.) Strings – Binger

After seeing the show at the Lamp shop I went down to The Skinny Pancake Burlington and saw a couple of songs from Breakfast and a full set by Binger. It was a great night. I love the line in the Sarah song about midsummer’s magic chance. Great song from 1881. This next band played yesterday in the rotary in Winooski.

10.) Ankle Breaker – The High Breaks
11.) Break A Leg – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
12.) Migraine – Hammydown
13.) 45 Clever Girls

Clever and Hammy will be at The Monkey House on Saturday. It will be a great show. I saw David and the band at Radio Bean last Sunday and didn’t go get a drink during the song or anything. Great stuff from the Breaks. This next band are at Foam tonight.

14.) Drivin’ All Alone – The Parts
15.) All Down Tonight – Swale
16.) The Process – Pinhead
17.) Mary – Anachronist

Great song from the central Vermont band. Classic song from Pinhead. I’m so happy I can play that Swale song. They’ve been playing it around for a while. The Parts always rock. So, I saw my first sunflower this week so you know what that means.

18.) Sunflower Street – David L Jarvis
19.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
20.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka
21.) Gettin’ High – Heavy Plains

Plains are no more but they played some great shows and left us with some great music, like that song. Hopefully, Luke Adam will get his new band out soon. Classic song about the old north end of Burlington by James. Great songs from the Claws and Dave. OK, let’s keep rocking.

22.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
23.) Moving Song – Zola Turn
24.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
25.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

I can’t wait for the new Francis album. Particles are on tour everywhere. Check them out if they come to your town. Old classic from Zola and new classic from Rabbit. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) It Won’t Stop – Phantom Suns
27.) Pick Up Your Clothes – The New Siberians
28.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn
29.) Here’s Where You Were – Swale

That’s the last song on Swale’s new album. Great songs from Aaron and the Siberians. Phantom is Ryan Cohen‘s band when he’s not in the studio. 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 usually play a lot of music from bands who play in Burlington and from all over Vermont, but tonight let’s take a trip around New England and check out some cool songs from the past and present.

1.) Two Sleep Arms – Lendway
2.) The Loops (We’re Those Kids) – The Mockingbirds
3.) Uh Oh – Slowdim
4.) Lean In – When Particles Collide

Particles used to live in Maine but have moved to New Hampshire. They will be doing a tour soon, so check them out if you like to rock. Slowdim are from Boston and have some amazing songs. The Mockingbirds were a 90’s band from Rhode Island. That’s such a great song, and highlights the struggle for musicians to be able to get health care, among other things. Lendway were from Vermont and I miss them. Michael moved to California but the other three guys formed The High Breaks and Matt Hagen is in a few other bands too. OK, it’s time for the next song on the album Bernie Sanders recorded with 30 VT artists back in the 80’s.

5.) The Banks of Marble – Bernie Sanders
6.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
7.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
8.) Flicker Flutter – Alpenglow

That’s another song from their brand new album Callisto. I had to play the Aaron song because it’s so good, and it’s been raining so much today it reminds me of an underwater kingdom. I love the song about Bernie that really highlights how Bernie’s policies, when enacted, can help make a beautiful city and help people get health care, even musicians. The imagery in that song is so clear. I love the song by Bernie that shows how he has kept the same message for such a long time. Unwavering. One of the great musicians to come out of Burlington has a birthday today. Here is a tiny bit of the music that she has brought to this world.

9.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
10.) Dragged Around The Universe – Queen Tangerine
11.) Void – The Lavas
12.) Wing To Me – Alice Austin
13.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin

I had to play Rain, since it’s been such a damp day. That is from a recent ep. Wing is from her solo album To A Star In The Yard. Alice started in Zola then moved to QT, then The Lavas before heading out on her own. Thanks for all the great music Alice!! OK, this next song has been running though my head lately.

14.) Neighborhood – Black Rabbit
15.) Righteous – Rough Francis
16.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
17.) Bootstrap – Mac Swan & Black Holly
18.) Be Aggressive – Be Aggressive

Aggressive are from Bradford but come up to rock Burlington now and then. Matt Hagen from Lendway plays bass with Holly, and the metal/punk band uses a banjo instead of guitar. Matt also plays bass with Hen who just have bass,drum, and vocals. Great song from the last Francis album. I can’t wait for the next one. Great song from Rabbit. This next band are playing Saturday at Radio Bean

19.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
20.) Crow King – Binger
21.) Kids – Wren Kitz
22.) Doris – Wren Kitz

Those are the closing two pieces form Wren’s new album For Evelyn. He is doing a release show for the album tomorrow. Binger are playing tomorrow at Radio Bean. This next band just had their Kickstarter funded and have begun recording their first full album. It can be a wild ride to see if a band gets a Kickstarter funded and I’m so glad they made it. Here is one form their first EP.

23.) Afterall (Glad We Made It) – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
24.) Last Love – Myra Flynn
25.) Naive Melody – Strange Machines (W Hayley Jane)
26.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow

Such a lovely and powerful song from Crow. They are from Rutland. Machines are from Boston and come to Burlington now and then. That was recorded in February this year at Nectar’s. Great song from Myra. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week. Ta ta.

27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a swing at the beginning then rocked through the end.

Song before: Distant Early Warning – Rush

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Life in Burlington has seen a ton of rain and lots of sunny beautiful days, or parts of days. This is a song from the early 2000’s from a band from Rutland. This song has been playing in my head a lot lately, so now I’m going to play it for you. This is If I Go by Will on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) If I Go – Will
2.) Waiting For You – Swale
3.) Think I’ll Go – Great Western
4.) Precious Time – The Cush

The Cush built their first album in Texas then moved to Vermont for a few years. I saw as many shows as I could and that is such a great song. Killer song from Western. Hopefully, they have new stuff coming soon. That’s such a fun Swale song and sounded as good coming out of the Will song as I hoped. This next singer is playing this weekend in Hinesburgh at the Northern Sun Music Festival with a bass player and drummer. I bet it will rock.

5.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
6.) Einstein-Rosen Bridge – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) The Whole – Milton Busker
8.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith

Maryse Smith is playing at Signal Kitchen tomorrow. What a great song. I have not caught up with Milton in a while, but hope to soon. Cool lyrics that make you think from Jeremy. Hopefully, I will get to see Aaron and his band really rock sometime soon. Like the first song in the set tonight, this song has been going through my head a lot lately.

9.) The Territory – Hana Zara
10.) Let It Shine – Rachel Brown
11.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
12.) In The Rain – Plan B

It’s been raining like crazy lately and was supposed to rain today. No sign of it yet, it’s really been a beautiful day. I’ve always loved that Dave song. Rachel used to unleash her killer voice in this town a lot. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. It will be released July 27 when they play The Monkey House.

13.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
14.) Bomb – Envy
15.) Original Original – Black Rabbit
16.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

Classic song from the band that lead the punk wave in Burlington back in the ’80’s. Killer new Rabbit song! Killer classic from Envy. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell who played in that band are in a new band called The Nancy Druids. Definitely check them out when they play Radio Bean a couple of Monday’s from now. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s keep on playing some recent Burlington punk music.

17.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
18.) Black Oil – Doom Service
19.) Asphyxia – Better Things
20.) Blue Lights – As We Were
21.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

If you want a heavy rock band, you could not do better than Rough Francis. They are at Higher Ground tonight opening for Bad Religion. As play it fast and hard and fun and I’ve loved the couple of times I’ve seen them. Better keep writing music and playing shows and I cant’ wait to see where they go next. Doom always rock hard. I miss Poxy. This next artist used to play all the time in Burlington. She’s coming back for a visit. Will she play a show? I hope so.

22.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
22.) Sequoia II – Binger
23.) These Are Some Things – When Particles Collide
24.) Stop – REDadmirial

I’ve got to get out and see admiral. They are playing the Northern Sun Music Festival too, but I have to work on Saturday and Sunday I’m meeting Mom and Dad and Ken for a Father’s Day lunch then heading to Montreal to see Rush with Ken. Killer song from Particles who are on the road now. Go check them out! Cool song form Binger. It’s almost the Solstice and the longest day of the year. It makes me feel like this song.

25.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
28.) Relief – Death World Wide

Killer song from the bands new album N.E.W. Love that Vetica song. Killer song from Slowdim. I’d love someone to bring that Boston band to town. Sarah’s on the road. Check her out if she comes to your town! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the release of Misplaced Childhood, so the songs after were: Childhood’s End->White Feather (live) – Fish

After wrapping up the show, the rain came. It was a very wet walk home with shifting winds. The umbrella helped, but it was a very wet walk.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played a couple of songs to celebrate my father’s 85th birthday today, and played some fun quirky songs.

The ’80’s Ladies each picked a full album to play, to get ready for St Patrick’s Day, from 7-9, so the station played U2’s The Joshua Tree in it’s entirety followed by The Cure’s Disintegration.

Song before: The Cure – Thompson Gunner

into

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Tonight, I’m going to cheat a little and begin with a non-local song. Today is my dad’s 85th birthday, so I want to start with something he will appreciate. He’s always been a great father and spent much of his life volunteering in our community. Happy Birthday Dad!

1.) What’s The Buzz-Strange Thing Mystifying – Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack
2.) Addison County Clay – Dirtminers
3.) Ninjas VS Zombies – Phil Yates
4.) Shadow And Act – Invisible Homes
5.) Sparks – The Color Exchange

Exchange are from North Carolina, but stopped by Nectar’s on Tuesday, and played a fantastic show. I was tired, but their energy was so high that I loved every note. Homes and Phil played killer sets that night too! I know my dad has spent some time struggling with Addison county clay in his lifetime, and hope he appreciated the lyrics. I’m bummed I did not make it to Radio Bean last Saturday to see these next two bands.

6.) See You At Eight – Villanelles
7.) Into The Light – Great Western
8.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox

I just got that album yesterday and really like Dreamtime. I will have to check farther into it soon. Great songs from two great bands. There’s a Villanelles related movie happening at Arts Riot Saturday, and Maryse Smith and others are playing live. OK, last week I finished playing Many Things & Many Scenes, the excellent album from Joe Adler. Tonight, let’s start a new album to play song by song, week after week, until we’ve heard it all. Let’s jump into the first song from Swale’s The Next Instead.

9.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
10.) She Brings Me – Sistas in the Pit
11.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse
12.) Tibbar Tibbar – Black Rabbit

Rabbit are making some killer new music, but I still love that older song. Great rocker from the Crazy band who are playing all over Vermont, it seems. I loved the Sistas show with Death World Wide and ROUGH FRANCIS, and just had to play that song again. Hmmm, Swale. Here’s a fun song from an album that will be released soon.

13..) Co-Pilot – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
15.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
16.) Highway Girl – The Skamaphrodites

I hadn’t played ska in a while so I had to break that one out. Classics from Pinhead and Chin Ho. This next song is just one of those songs I’ve loved for years. Thanks Caroline Marie for such a great song!

17.) Once Upon – Vedora
18.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
19.) Chop Wood-Carry Water – Zola Turn

Those were just three classic Burlington songs, though RT were in Boston when they wrote that song about Medford. OK, let’s play some songs to highlight Burlington’s quirky side.

20.) Hedgehogs – The Toes
21.) Mixtape – Shark Victim
22.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
23.) Cassette – Slingshot Dakota

Toes and Shark have some delightfully quirky music. Remember when you would use a cassette to make a mixtape for the girl you liked, to find a way to connect? I’m not sure how it works in the digital age, but it’s a powerful enough memory that SV and HP have released their newest albums on cassette. OK, at this point I’m long on songs and short on time, so let’s run to the end.

24.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
25.) TFAY (live) – Elephants of Scotland
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
28.) In The Rain – Plan B

It’s that time of year when temperatures are rising and precipitation will now come as rain. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Jason Cooley stopped in to play a few songs live and I played some very new music.

Song before: Out Of The Blue – David Gilmour

promo

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?

I just got back from my 98th local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I know it’s almost Valentine’s Day, but I focused more on the minerals that make up our bodies and our earth.

Song before the song before: Ships – Anais Mitchell

Song before: The Cinema Show – Genesis

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a cold snowy night in Burlington but lots of people are walking around and not letting it get them down. Last week I talked about how much of our bodies are made of water. Tonight, I will talk about the remaining amount of minerals, the dust that we are, the dust from where we came and the dust we will become. The earth is a medium where things grow out of and into our world. We start as dust and grow into the world and eventually will return to the dust. Let’s begin tonight with Anais Mitchell and Our Lady Of The Underground on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
2.) Garden Flower – Maryse Smith
3.) The Seed (live) – Elephants of Scotland
4.) Sequoia 3 – Binger

We all started from the same root indeed. Humankind began and grew into branching civilizations but we all started from the same root and from the same soil. The soil allows seeds to grow into the world and create flowers and new seeds to go back into the soil, and continue the cycle. Maryse played a sweet version of that Saturday at Radio Bean. Can’t wait to see Elephants in Montreal playing as a side part of the Marillion weekend. OK, let’s step away from the theme and play the next song on Many Things & Many Scenes.

5.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
6.) Pocono Pines – Great Western
7.) In The Pines – Vedora

If you want to be out in the pines under a blanket of snow, Vermont is the place to be. It’s so beautiful at this time of year. Nice song from GW. Musicians often start as fans and have other bands that influence the roots of the music they will create. Let’s play a couple of covers and look at some band roots.

8.) Sitting Still (REM cover) – Ninja Custodian
9.) Dizzy (Tommy Roe cover) – Peg Tassey MUSIC
10.) Finder (Madelines cover) – Rocketsled
11.) Rock And Roll Is My Weapon (Ninja Custodian cover) – The Channel Two Dub Band

Ending where we began with that set. The last two were from the Burlington Does Burlington album from many years ago. I love the songs of the band Swale but every once in a while they do a show of cover songs and let people sign up and sing them. They call it Swaleoke. It’s a mixture of pro and amateur singers. A couple of times ago they said I had to sing a song at one, and will do so Saturday night at Radio Bean. I can’t sing so it’s going to be weird. Until then, here is a true Sale song.

12.) The Next Instead – Swale
13.) Asphyxia – Better Things
14.) Black Oil – Doom Service

Oil is part of the earth and helped humankind evolve to where we are but hopefully we can get off it soon. Granted that song is about the X-Files but it’s good to get off that oil too. BT are playing at Nectar’s on Monday and I hope to catch them. Binger are playing on Tuesday and many other days this week. I’m so psyched for the Death World Wide show coming up at the Flynn Theatre tomorrow. This set goes out to my brother Ken who will join me.

15.) Where Do We Go From Here??? – Death
16.) Comm To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS
17.) Let the World Turn – Death

It’s going to be a great show. Nice cover story in the Burlington Free Press today. I thought I would not have any new songs to play and just before I headed down to the show I got this super brand new song.

18.) The Way It Is – Maryse Smith
19.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara
20.) Tell Me – Linda Bassick
21.) When I Was New – Sarah Blacker

Sarah is busy working on a brand new album. I can’t wait. Linda has new stuff coming too, and may stop into my radio show to play some songs in the coming weeks. I can’t wait for Hana’s new album The North. There are going to be so many great songs on it, judging from seeing them live. That’s the title song on Maryse’s new album that should be out soon. She did a great version of it last week at Radio Bean and I hope her leg heals soon. I’m going to cheat a bit an send this out by request to Skipper Horner

22.) At The Hundredth Meridian – The Tragically Hip
23.) Earth Blues – The Eames Brothers Band
24.) Tallest Trees – Slowdim

Great song from the Boston band that I’d love to have someone bring to town sometime. Nice earthy songs from the Vermont and Canadian bands. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got home from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. I had some brand new music to play, and let rock and country hang out a bit.

Song before: Parisian Walkways – Greg Lake with Gary Moore

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It was warm and sunny this week, until Wednesday, and some new music has been unfurled in the world. This is from the new album Photoelectric by a band called When Particles Collide. This is a song called Lean In on WBKM, and even though they are from Maine, this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
2.) B A Pariah – Endless Jags
3.) Red And Gold – Old Soul

Those three bands are from Maine, and even though I love the music from Vermont, they’ve got some good stuff going on too. I saw Old Soul once at Radio Bean and they were really impressive. Jags and Particles come to town and rock, now and then. Particles released the new album Tuesday and are off and rocking. Now it’s time for the next song on Dancing With The Big Guy. So far on the album there are rap songs, funk, punk and indie rock. Any bet they also have a country song?

4.) Lucky- Ninja Custodian
5.) Easy Come – Split Tongue Crow
6.) Santa Anna – Hana Zara

I used to play her album all the time. I just pulled it out the other day and just saw the title and had to play Santa. I though Easy Come would work nice with the theme of lucky. I was reading that Robert Gagnon was visiting John Baumann and am hoping for some more Satori Bob. Until then…

7.) Presence – Satori Bob
8.) Coming Down Again – Waylon Speed
9.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim

I really liked playing that song the other week and wanted to play it again. Nice new song from Waylon’s new album Kin. Up next is a band who are recording a new album. This is a classic Burlington song.

10.) I Am Sunday – The Red Telephone
11.) Chop Wood/Carry Water – Zola Turn
12.) Warm Chills – Persian Claws
13.) Constant Disaster – When Particles Collide

Ending where we began. I had a bit of space in the set so tossed in Warm Chills. Thanks Persian for so many great short songs. Classics from Zola and RT. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we”
