From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I got to see a ton of great music in town last week and there is a lot coming up this week.

I had a great time seeing music last Saturday at Signal Kitchen. The evening began with a puff of smoke and a trance music flow supplied by Snakefoot. He moved a lot of cool sounds in and out of the flow and was joined by Stephanie Heaghney. She added bits of voice and flute into the samples that created the sound. She sang a little now and then and that was lovely to hear. There were no separate songs as such, just a steady transition of sounds. It was pretty cool.

Clad in white jumpsuits and wearing head lamps, Superhuman Happiness took the stage for a very rhythmic dance party. The room was pretty full and people were happy and having a great time. They were joined by a percussionist, who’s name I missed, perhaps Eric, and Ray Belli from Arc Iris sat in on the main drum kit. The three main members of the band played keys and horns and Andrea Diaz’s singing was lovely. The only song I knew was See Me On My Way, and they did a great job on it. They played for an hour or so and the crowd danced the whole time.

Ryan Miller sat in on DJ before and after the Happiness set and played some great songs. I don’t think I knew any of them, but they all seemed to have a familiar ’70’s feel.

At some point, three golden caped figures emerged from the back of the room and rushed to the stage. They knelt before it and activated the Arc Iris sign, then took the stage and began to play. The trio sounded great and mixed a dance sound with some lovely melodies. They played fun and gorgeous songs like Paint With The Sun and Johnny. They reworked Money Gnomes from the first album. They played a couple of the songs from Joni Mitchell’s Blue album, since last time they were in town, they played the whole thing. They did an instrumental jam where the angel wings came out and followed with a powerful version of Kaleidoscope. Their set was fantastic and they ended the night with a well deserved lullaby encore. I’m so glad I went.

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will go as follows.

Song before: Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Thanks Higher Ground for sponsoring our station. They have a lot of music happening this week, and so does the rest of our town. Let’s begin with a guy who played around in the 1990’s and is getting the band back together.

1.) Sunflower Street – Dave Jarvis Band
2.) What’s The Deal With The Triangle? – James Kochalka Superstar
3.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
4.) The Next Instead – SWALE

On Monday Kochalka, Dino, Swale and Led Loco played a show in honor of Mike McGonegal. It was a great send off and most of those songs were played. He will be missed. OK, here is the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through week after week. The album is called Song For My Double.

5.) Aspiration – Invisible Homes
6.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
7.) Children Of The Stars – Madaila
8.) Johnny – Arc Iris

Iris will be at Signal Kitchen on Friday and always put on a great show. That’s another new song from Madaila from their Traces album. 1881 are playing Sidebar on Monday and are really good. This next band are playing with Iris on Saturday.

9.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
10.) Better Off – Haley Jane and the Primates
11.) Clocks On The Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
12.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

Great new song from Whisper. Who needs contests when you can just walk out to a local club and see people like Jeremy. Haley and the band will be at Nectar’s tomorrow and always put on an enthralling show. This next singer will be at Manhattan Pizza on Saturday.

13.) Dreams Elope – Joe Adler
14.) East Jabip – REDadmiral
15.) Muskrat Love – Cave Bees
16.) Two Weeks (’til The End Of The World) – Grand

I still remember the show Grand played at Nectar’s a few months ago and can’t wait to see them again. Bees are playing next Wednesday at ArtsRiot. Admiral are at the Monkey House on Saturday and always rock. OK, let’s play some classic Burlington songs.

17.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
18.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
19.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
20.) The Spy Song – Pinhead.

All four of those are classic Burlington songs. This next one is too and is unfortunately still all too appropriate.

21.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey MUSIC
22.) Kill Your Idols – Slush
23.) Blood Boy – Barbacoa
24.) Sunday – Envy

Those are all classics too. Barbacoa will play with Swale tomorrow at ArtsRiot for a live recording, so that is one of the many can’t miss shows tomorrow, and Saturday is just as packed. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
26.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
27.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Great new Siberians song. FTC rocked the early 2000’s and Casey used to sing in a few local bands. 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 runs from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows:

Song before: New Americana – Halsey

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I have been so inspired by Bernie’s valiant run for President. No matter what happens next, he has gotten his message out to the people in staggering ways. He has inspired people in ways that we will not understand for years, but we do have some music that has been inspired by his highest ideals. Let’s begin tonight with some of those.

1.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN UNIT
2.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
3.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vt Musicians

His message is so wonderfully inspiring and I’m glad he has the chance to spread it to so many people. OK, here is the last song on Callisto. I will have to pick a new album to play all the way through next week.

4.) Skydiving – Alpenglow
5.) Violet – Sneakers Jazz Band – Live at White Crow
6.) Rocket – Soule Monde I Burlington, VT

Soule will play around at Jazzfest. I had to play Violet since the Sneakers band are so great. What a lovely way to end the Callisto album. OK, Soule are also playing a few shows with Josh Weinstein and Bob Wagner at Nectar’s as Soule Indomitable so let’s play a Kat Wright song.

7.) Let’s Move – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
8.) Aerosol Ball – The Felice Brothers
9.) Zigzagging Toward The Light – Conor Oberst

I really enjoyed the Connor show with the Felice Brothers at Higher Ground last Tuesday and wanted to play some of their music. Great song by Kat and the band. On Monday I got to see a cool band called Silver Bridget. I don’t have any of their music to play but they did a great version of this next song. This next song is a cover of a classic as performed by a band who will play the top of the block on Church St on Friday Night.

10.) Starman – Madaila
11.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
12.) Rise – Barika
13.) ComeTooLate – Paper Castles

Castles played a new bar called Side Bar on Wednesday. I should check that place out soon. Barika and Superhuman will be playing around this weekend. Great cover from Madaila. This next band played at Higher Ground last Sunday.

14.) Could You be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
15.) Chopped And Channeled – Barbacoa
16.) The Big One – The High Breaks
17.) Carnage – Black Rabbit

I’m psyched to see Rabbit on Saturday at Four Quarters Brewery in Winooski. The Breaks will play in Nectar’s garage window on Saturday and on Church St on Sunday. Barbacoa are playing at The Skinny Pancake on Saturday. This next band will feature some bass playing at Manhattan Pizza and Pub on Saturday.

18.) Local Lore – Savage Hen
19.) No Way – Phantom Suns
20.) Fight – When Particles Collide
21.) Blind Pigs – ROUGH FRANCIS

I got to chat with Urian Hackney who said the new Francis album should be out around Labor Day. Woo hoo!! Great new song from Particles. Phantom played The Monkey House on Wednesday. This next song is a personal favorite.

22.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
23.) Roll Me – The Cush
24.) The Perfect Map – Elephants of Scotland
25.) Be A Good Citizen – Pinhead

I thought I’d end where I began by speaking about citizenship. Great new song from Elephants. I love that song by The Cush. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we? See Ya. Ta Ta. Goodbye

26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I just got back from my local music radio show on Wbkm Dot Org. I had one stunning mix and played some sweet songs.

Song before: Wondering Where The Lions Are – Bruce Cockburn

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been thinking about eternity and the nature of what we are recently. It’s weird to think of the spirit that is you is so tied to a physical body, and that large wonderful body would be almost nothing if you took away the water. Let’s play some songs about water and think about what it means to be alive. This is Left One In The Rain by Alice Austin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Left One In The Rain – Alice Austin
2.) Orange Like Water – The Cush
3.) Waterlanding – Swale
4.) Nothing But The Water II – Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Great song from Grace talking about one of the uses of water, it’s a great thing to balance the element of fire. The Swale and Cush songs have such a lovely watery feel. (note: the mix from Orange into Landing was seamless). Of course, rain is a very important iteration of water. OK, let’s move on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes,

5.) Many Things & Many Scenes – Joe Adler
6.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
7.) Mystery Blues – Zoot Wilson
8.) Promises – Vedora

Great song from Vedora. Matt has a side project every Monday in February at Radio Bean from 7-8. Last week I worked until 7:30 and missed it. Rats. Great classic songs from Burlington’s past with Joe and Zoot, and great song from Burlington’s present by Joe. This next singer is playing the Bean on Saturday at 7. I’ll see if I can make it if I get out early enough.

9.) Good Thing – Maryse Smith
10.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik and Her Apologies
11.) Kill The Lights – Monoprix
12.) Change My Heart – Rusty Belle

Rusty are from North Hampton but come to Burlington often. They are playing the Skinny Pancake on Friday. Cool song from Brett Hughes and co. The Anna song would have fit nicely into the first set. This next band is playing The Monkey House tomorrow.

13.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
14.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness

Great band name and sweet song. Hover were a ’90’s Burlington band. It’s almost time for the And The Kids new album and tour. If you liked the Hover song, you’ll like this next set too!

17.) Finder – Madelines
18.) Circumstance – Tokyo Storm Warning
19.) Throw Me Away – Spill
20.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian

That song used to rock Burlington hard and often. I love all of those rocking songs that helped Burlington to keep expanding the sound of our town. I’m very psyched for this show next week at the Flynn Theatre. These three bands will be rocking out.

21.) Scream – Sistas in the Pit
22.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
23/) Freakin’ Out – Death World Wide

I’m sending that set out to my brother Ken who will go to the show with me. OK, let’s head back to classic Burlington.

24.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
25.) The Tradeoff In Vermont – Lindy Pear
26.) Lights Of Montreal – Lobot
27.) Geograph (2015 mix) – Elephants of Scotland

Ending where we began, on the edge of sea and sand. Ken and I, and most of the elephants, will see the lights of Montreal this summer when we go see Rush. 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,ORG. It’s Jazzfest week, so I highlighted some of our great local jazzish music.

Song before: Breathing – Kate Bush

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It’s Jazzfest week and there were 4 bands playing on Church street when I walked down, and there’s music in every club in town. With all the flowers out, every time I step outside, it just feels great to breathe! Here’s Rubblebucket on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Breatherz (Young As Clouds) – Rubblebucket
2.) Breathe – Barika
3.) All About You – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Kat has a great voice and is a true local treasure. She and the band play Radio Bean all the time. That Barika song makes me happy whenever I hear it. Rubblebucket used to play all over Burlington. The last show I went to was Marco Benevento at Radio Bean. The show was recorded and uploaded so I downloaded it. Here’s one of the songs from that show.

4.) Such A Night – Marco Benevento
5.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
6.) Killer Bee Bop – Zoot Wilson

Zoot is a legend in this town and I love the sting in the guitar. Superhuman have a great name, and the song makes me smile as much as their name. Killer playing by Marco. Up next let’s rock for a bit. Here is the next song from Dancing With The Big Guy.

7.) Drug Me Up – Ninja Custodian
8.) Lost And Found – Dented Personality
9.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle

That song just fills me. Dented have changed their name to Better Things and are playing Sunday at Twofourtwo Main with Gorgon. Great song by Ninja. Let’s go back to some more fun with Marco.

10.) Fearless part 1 – Marco Benevento
11.) Benny And The Jets – Marco Benevento
12.) Fearless part 2 – Marco Benevento
13.) Stronger – Belizbeha

Great playing by Belizebeha, even if it’s a bit outside of my comfort zone. I do try and push myself a bit for Jazzfest week. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song after – Jungle Ride (live) – Fish

At the end of the show, Ted Jacobites stopped in and gave me a ride home on the rainy night where I did not bring my umbrella. He asked for a song by Corrinne Bailey Rae.

I just got back from my 44th local music internet only radio show on WBKM. I had a bunch of new music to load in, but had a problem after the second disc (still stuck in the computer). I improvised. I’m still feeling a bit off or I would be at Manhattan Pizza seeing Kairos and Wave of the Future, I think Shark Victim would have finished their set before my show ended.

Song before: Moongirl – Stellastarr

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. Let’s go way back to the 1970″s for I’m Ready by the N-Zones on WBKM and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) I’m Ready – The N-Zones
2.) On My Way – Hover
3.) Voodoo Camero – Wide Wail
4.) Folsom Prison Blues – Zoot Wilson

Zoot is a legend in this town. He did great stuff on his own and with the N-Zones. Wide Wail rocked us hard for a few years. Brad Searles is a great guy and Hover always sounded intriguing. When I was very young, my parents took me to Memorial Auditorium to see Johnny Cash. I will always remember that. This next artist has been playing her heart out for years. She has been writing great songs and recently made a very wonderful video. This song is appropriate for the cold weather in Burlington tonight.

5.) Shiver – Sarah Blacker
6.) Naomi’s Back – Fire The Cannons
7.) White Lizard – Shark Victim

SV are likely just about to hit the stage at Manhattan Pizza. If I wasn’t here, that’s where I would be. FTC used to rock out town like crazy!!! I love all of the effort Sarah put into the song and video. Next, let’s play the last song from To A Star In The Yard.

8.) Blink And We Miss – Alice Austin
9.) The Day You Left This Earth – Split Tongue Crow
10.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western

Love seeing GW play that song. They really let it rock at the end when they do it live. Great song from STC. Next up is a band with one of the best names ever.

11.) See Me On My Way – Superhuman Happiness
12.) Walkingincircles – Raq
13.) A New Kind Of Blue – The Cush

Love the power and grace of the Cush. Raq recently played at Nectar’s. It’s time for me to be on my way. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Speaking of videos, Fish is collecting images for the video he will do for this next song.
