Song before: The Loops – The Mockingbirds

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Let’s begin with a Burlington legend who is getting one of her bands back together for a show next week.

1.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
2.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue
3.) Many Things And Many Scenes – Joe Adler
4.) The Worst Part – Bethany Conner Music

It’s been a while since I’ve been lucky enough to hear Bethany play but I saw she had a show listed recently so hopefully she will come back to town soon. Joe and his band played a nice version of that in the rotary in the Winooski traffic circle yesterday. It’s a nice setup. Cricket are playing in Essex on Friday and at Light Club Lamp Shop on Saturday. OK, here is the next song on Lights, Camera, Action and is the first song on the Action EP.

5.) Not Quite As Good – 1881
6.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
7.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
8.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn

I just love that song by local legend Aaron. David will be at Switchback on Friday at 6. I’m working until 7 so it may not work out but check him out if you can. The Girls are playing at SideBar on Saturday and that should be a great time. OK, this next band are releasing their new album tomorrow. It’s called There’s No One Here and these songs will be on it.

9.) Here’s Where You Were – SWALE
10.) Wooden Heart – Swale
11.) Release Your Records – Swale
12.) Every Last One Of Us – Swale

They just played a great show in the Intervale today and will be at the Lamp Shop tomorrow for the official release. Yea!! I saw this band once and liked them and they are back in town next week.

13.) The Field – The Dead Shakers
14.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
15.) Stratosphere – Joe Adler
16.) Strings – Binger

Binger are now playing as Joe’s backup band The Rangers of Danger. They did a great version of Stratosphere in Winooski yesterday. Summer is a ’90’s Burlington classic. Last week The Nancy Druids pulled out this Envy song.

17.) 1,000 :Lies – Sean Toohey
18.) Lonesome Lullaby – Gabrielle Douglas and the Dwellers
19.) So They Say – The New Siberians
20.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone

Telephone made such great music. Another great new song from the Siberians. Lonesome is a Gabby song but really sounds like a Cush song. OK, last week I saw Dino Bravo with David Evan sitting in on drums and that makes Zeus Springsteen a subset of that version of Dino Bravo.

21.) Bridge To Panda Chaos – Zeus Springsteen
22.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo VT
23.) Hell Chicken – Swillbillie
24.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)

I love it when the Breaks do a little Sabbath. Swale too. Swillbillie played a great version of that song at the show with Dino. OK, let’s celebrate the release of the new Swale album with some of their older songs.

25.) Waterlanding – Swale
26.) Black Boys On Mopeds – Swale
27.) If You Get Lost – Swale
28.) the Next Instead – Swale

Song before: Little Wing – Uli Jon Roth

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. There is a new series at The Monkey House called The Show Up Shows where they have bands play and donate money to a worthy cause. Sunday will be the second installment and will support Planned Parenthood. It will feature these next four bands.

1.) Angela Carter – Cricket Blue
2.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
3.) It’s A Shame – The Parts
4.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Those are four cool songs and all of the bands will be at the Monkey House on Sunday. I think it’s an early show and starts at 6:30. OK, let’s play the next song on By My Side.

5.) Feelin’ Strong – Kat Wright
6.) Spring – Madaila
7.) Summer Falls – Lendway
8.) Paperclip Chains – Let’s Whisper

I love Whisper’s songs. I think they are making a new album. I had to play Spring and Summer Falls since we got 30″ of snow on Tuesday and Wednesday and it’s a bright shining winter wonderland outside. Great song by the super strong Kat Wright band. Madaila, and these next four bands, are playing at Higher Ground (thanks for sponsoring us HG) on Saturday at 12:30 in the afternoon. They will be rocking out some kids songs.

9.) Smile – Dwight & Nicole
10.) What’s The Deal With The Triangle? – James Kochalka
11.) Popular Crowd – SWALE
12.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS

If I was not working, I’d love to be there for that show. They’ve done it for a few years now. So, I just got in this new album by a new band who feature Greg and Casey from Rocketsled. They are called Senders.

13.) Too Late To Learn – Senders
14.) ETI (Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) – The Contrarian
15.) Go Ahead And Fear The Reaper – Senders
16.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae creates music as the Contrarian and is now in a new band too. Perhaps he is in others too. OK, I just got this new song in and it’s really cool.

17.) Laughing Jim – The Edd
18.) Lines and Spaces (live) – The Cancer Conspiracy
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.

20.) 45 – Clever Girls
21.) Small Town Movie (live) – The Cush
22.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
23.) This Machine Still Kills Fascists – Senders.

I just had to play the Senders and Homes songs back to back. Great song by The Cush. Same for Clever. OK, let’s go way back in time.

24.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
25.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn
26.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
27.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!

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

Song before: The Last Of The Unplucked Gems – The Tragically Hip

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 our station and for reuniting Rocketsled for a show on Saturday. Today is a historic day and tomorrow will be our first day with a new President. I hope this opening set fits our mood.

1.) Whole World Hangs – Anachronist
2.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
3.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
4.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

That’s a great song about protesting. We will likely need that a lot in the next few years. I want to send that out to all of the women who will march on Washington DC this weekend. Great song from Anders. Great Woody reference by Homes and great song from Anachronist. OK, here is the next song on Shovel Down.

5.) Mistake – Seth Yacovone Band
6.) Today Is Tomorrow – The Red Telephone
7.) Storm Cloud – When Particles Collide
8.) The Circus – Cold Sweat

Sweat used to play at Texas and other clubs around VT and upstate NY. I wanted to play that one in response to the closing of the Ringling Brothers circus. Particles are playing at Manhattan Pizza and Pub on Saturday and always rock. Sean from RT now plays in The Nancy Druids and they were amazing last night at Radio Bean. Great song from Seth. OK, let’s keep rocking.

9.) Nicky Says – Black Rabbit
10.) Eggshell – The Mountain Says No
11.) Monsters Are Due – Doom Service
12.) Time To Get Out – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days

Great rocker from the all around wonderful Aaron. Great rocker from Doom. Great new song from Mountain! Rabbit rock so hard and are always fun. The days are still short and the nights are still long and this song just feels right.

13.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
14.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
15.) Not Quite As Good – 1881
16.) This Isn’t Your Parade – Crazyhearse

Such a fun song from their Tordadic Beige album. Great new song from 1881’s Action EP. I love the huge sound on both the Carraway and Andriana songs. This next song is from a bunch of wonderful local artists who recorded this song to support the candidacy of Bernie Sanders.

17.) This Land Is Your Land – Various Artists
18.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT Artists
19.) Secret – Madaila
20.) You’ve Got Problems – Kat Wright

Great song from Kat and the band. Madaila likely have nothing to do with the band the Medallions who are playing at the oath of action day at The Skinny Pancake Burlington tomorrow but stop in and find out for yourself. Great message from Bernie and all the wonderful artists. OK, let’s rock.

21.) All My Life – Wide Wail
22.) Don’t Turn Back – Kelly Ravin
23.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
24.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn

Zola and CC rocked us so well back in the 1990’s. Great new song from Kelly and old song from WW. This next artist is a constant inspiration to me.

26.) The Territory – Hana Zara
27.) Make It Work – The New Siberians
28.) Tha Critic – Ninja Custodian
29.) Ninjas Vs Zombies (Let’s Keep Our Heads) – Phil Yates

into

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It hit 96 degrees today and it’s a scorching night in the Queen City. Music is all around. Last night I got to see Swale play a great set in a classic Vermont setting. They played a bunch of great songs at Shelburne Farms including this one. They just made a devastatingly beautiful and horrible video for this cover song. This is a song to help remind us that the color of your skin and the shape of your face and body mean nothing. You are what you say and what you do and what you tolerate and what you don’t.

1.) Black Boys On Mopeds – SWALE
2.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik
3.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
4.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

What a great new song from the Siberians. I’ve got a couple more songs from it lined up later. Jeremy Gilchrist is playing Radio Bean tomorrow at 7 so I may catch a song or two at the end of his set if I’m out of work on time. Anna is playing at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow too which is cool. Swale were amazing and played an amazing version of that song yesterday. As always, I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the station. They have Upmhrey’s McGee in town tonight and Strangefolk in Jay this weekend. The Girls Rock VT August Showcase is happening Saturday if you want a glimpse of the future rock scene. OK, here is he next song from Giant Places.

5.) Take Your Gold Away – Lendway
6.) The Interrogator (Enhanced) – Milton Busker
7.) New Atlantis – Aaron Flinn
8.) Make It Work – The New Siberians

Another great new song from Siberians new album Black, Blue and White. Aaron writes and sings such great songs. I love the new Milton album and that song has some intense energy. Hmmm, Lendway. It’s hot and there is no breeze and it’s summer in Vermont. Let’s celebrate it.

9.) Summertime – Peg Tassey MUSIC
10.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila
12.) Breaking Camp – The New Siberians

Yup, the Siberians have a dancey pop song on the new album too. Such a fun song from Madaila who are going to take over downtown for a day sometime soon. It is summer and beach weather!!!! Even at night!! OK, let’s go back to the late ;80;s or early ’90’s for a classic song about a girl.

13.) Mary – Plan B
14.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants of Scotland
15.) Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
16.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Yup, the Siberians have a psychedelic/prog rock song on the new album. Great instrumental from the ’90’s prog rock band. That is a song from Elephants new album. I love Plan B. OK, let’s head to the indie zone.

17.) Life Of The Party – My first Days On Junk
18.) Hindsight 20/20 – Better Things
19.) Screwball – Screaming Broccoli
20.) Tenderness – The New Siberians

That one almost has a bit of a Ninja vibe. The New Siberians are made of Simon Plumpton on drums, who also plays with Invisible Homes, Ted Pappadopoulos on bass and vocals and assorted instruments, and Brendan Devitt on guitar and vocals. There are so many good songs on this new album of theirs. Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s and rocked hard. Better are about to release a new album and 20/20 will be one of the songs. Junk are a band with Urian Hackney and played Waking Windows last spring. OK, let’s play another song from that late ’80’s early ’90’s period.

21.) New Age Woman – Pinhead
22.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS
23.) Silver And Gold – Waylon Speed!
24.) Black, Blue And White – The New Siberians

That one from the Siberians has more of a classic rock sound so I thought it would sound good with the Speed song. Francis should have a new album out soon and I can’t wait. Great rocker from Pinhead. I got to see Caroline Marie play songs from her upcoming solo album last week, so let’s play one from her last album.

25.) The Feeling – Vedora
26.) Sweet Dreams – Bethany Conner Music
27.) Black 17 – The New Siberians

Great rocker from the Siberians. I love that beautiful song from Bethany. Hmmm, Vedora. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

intro

From our – hey why are the meters not showing anything. Aargh

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Sorry for the mic not working at the beginning. I guess you really know that I’m live. It’s beautiful in Vermont right now but it’s really hot and time to head to the beach.

2.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
3.) The Storm Has Been Weathered – 1881
4.) Say It – Anachronist

I just love that song from the central Vermont band. I chatted with Winfield Holt from 1881 in the window of the show at Nectar’s last night and really want to catch his band soon. I remember seeing Blotto at Hunt’s a couple of times a long time ago. OK, here is the next song on Giant Places, the album I am playing through song by song, week after week, until the album is done.

5.) Summer Falls – Lendway
6.) Gray Goo – Villanelles
7.) Sunshine – Apartment 3
8.) Kick Rocks – And The Kids

Kids played a great show at ArtsRiot last Saturday. Apartment 3 played the show and they were pretty awesome too. Villanelles are playing every Wednesday in July at Nectar’s. They played a great show last night with Invisible Homes. Next week Swale share the bill, so that will be great too. On July 28th the legendary Envy will reunite for a show at The Monkey House. It’s time to start getting excited.

9.) Falling In And Out Of Sleep – Envy
10.) Summer Song – Wide Wail
11.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
12.) Another Life Ago – The Cush

I still remember the first night I saw the Cush at Club Metronome several years ago. Jet played some great shows in the ’90’s and it was great to hear music diversify in so many ways. Now, you can hear almost any kind of music in Burlington. That was a nice mellow song from WW, another classic ’90’s band. OK, let’s keep rocking. This next band play tomorrow night at Manhattan Pizza and Pub.

13.) Restaurant – The Mountain Says No
14.) Politicians In My Eyes – Death World Wide
15.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn
16.) Dead Summer – Thompson Gunner

There’s always something on the radio when you listen to WBKM. You can hear great songs like Dead Summer. Real is another classic from the ’90’s when Zola played a ton of great shows. Death began in Detroit, then they moved to VT and became Lambsbread and now they are rocking as Death again. I loved the show they played at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts last year. Hmmm, Mountain. This next band played a great show last night at Nectar’s and this is one of my favorite songs.

17.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
18.) Sun Dipped Orphans and the Wizard’s Tea Pot – Elephants of Scotland
19.) The Summer Of Andy – Cancer Conspiracy

CC were another great band from the ’90’s. That’s a new song from Elephants who are putting out some tremendous music. Homes did a great version of Frequency last night. OK, let’s change things up a little bit.

20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
21.) The Feeling Is Strange – Binger
22.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
23.) Trouble Come No More – Cricket Blue

Cricket are playing at Main St Landing tomorrow and Radio Bean next Tuesday. Both Andriana and Binger played great sets at the Eat More Kale Festival a couple of weeks ago. Nice descriptions of VT by Portrait. This next singer is touring out west soon.

24.) Save A Different Way – Francesca Blanchard
25.) Beats Me – Satori Bob
26.) Glover Tonight – Chin Ho

Such a VT classic from Chin Ho. John Baumann used to play around as Satori but is now hanging out making music in OR. Great song from Francesca. 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. One of the legendary Burlington musicians from the ’90’s released a new ep this week. She is celebrating with a release party tonight in California. This is the title song.

1.) Cowboy Summer – Alice Austin
2.) Endless War – Jeremy Gilchrist
3.) Snow In The Controls – Dom The Barber
4.) All The Same To You – Milton Busker

Great song from Milton. I’ve been waiting until it was snowy out to play the Dommer Barber song. It isn’t really snowy out, but is in late January. I have played the Jeremy song before but that was a demo and this is the brand new studio version. Great stuff from Alice, as always. This next band played a fantastic version of this song last week at Signal Kitchen.

5.) Golden Crutch – Swale
6.) Son, You Are No Island – Torres
7.) Year Of The Snake – Tyler Daniel Bean
8.) Jack Sharp – Swale

Swale played a rocking version of that one too. Tyler played that song solo acoustic, but it had a lot of fire, and the version I just played is the full band version. Pretty cool song. Island was the song that stood out the most at the Torres show, though I really liked it all. I love the slow build and heavy surge at the end. I though it would be fun to bookend that set with Swale. OK, here is the next song on Red Flannel Hash

9.) Alienation – Black Rabbit
10.) Throw Me Away – Spill
11.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
12.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian

Classic rocker from Ninja. FTC rocked us for a few years in the early 2000’s and put on some pretty intense shows. Spill are another great ’90’s band and that song always grabbed me. I just love that Rabbit song!! There is a cool show happening tomorrow at Twofourtwo Main with these next three bands.

13.) Last Song – Carraway
14.) No Way – Phantom Suns
15.) Nothing Important – Doom Service

Doom have a new album called Live At Mount Doom, so I got that one from that album. Great songs from Phantom and Carraway. I really have to make it to 242 Main tomorrow. OK, let’s keep rocking.

16.) Ladders – Heavy Plains
17.) Great Scott – Wave Of The Future
18.) Too Drunk – The Dirty Blondes
19.) Hello World – Screaming Skull
20.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli

Killer song from the late ’80’s early ’90’s band. That Skull song is so cool. It’s a short intro followed by a shorter burst of intense rock. I just heard that the Blondes are playing at the Bowie tribute thing at Higher Ground tonight and I’m bummed I missed them. That is such a fun song from Wave. Great rocker from Plains. OK, let’s keep rocking.

21.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
22.) Not True – Peg Tassey
23.) Blue Light Shines – Gabrielle Douglas and The Dwellers
24.) Plastic Revolution

I keep singing that song “Revolution, Bern style now.” Great rocker from Gabby. Great rocker from Peg. Earthquakes had me bouncing around the studio, but of course, the other songs had me doing that too. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) Something I Drew – Farm
26.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
27.) Weapons Factory – The Wards with the Dirty Blondes
28.) Purpose and Object – The Contrarian

I love that song from Casey Merlin Rae. Classic from the ’80’s punk band. That was a re-recorded version with a bit of help from Diane Sullivan on vocals. Great song from Beano’s solo band. Hmmm, Farm. I liked the Torres show so much, I want to toss in another song. This is the title song from the new album.

29.) Sprinter – Torres
30.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy

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 had great plans to see lots of music this week, but twisted my ankle on Friday and sat (with leg up and icepack on) out too much of it. It’s a bit better now so I should be all set soon. Today has been cloudy and cool and humid and I’ve been in a spacey sort of mood. Let’s take a trip through the last 30 years in town and start with Move Through Time by Persian Claws on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Move Through Time – Persian Claws
2.) Pauses – Black Rabbit
3.) Your Downtown Aperture – Video Pigeon
4.) All My Life – Wide Wail

Killer song from a classic band from Burlington’s glorious ’90’s. Some people say Burlington bands come in waves and there are times when there is not much around. Even in those troughs bands like Video Pigeon were around rocking beautifully. Killer new song from Rabbit. Great song from the Claws!! OK, let’s stay in the ’90’s for a bit.

5.) The Summer Of Andy – The Cancer Conspiracy
6.) Last Man Standing – Band X
7.) Jules Rosen and Joe Steel – Brave The Vertigo
8.) One More Grave – The Contrarian

Casey Merlin Rae used to play in bands in town, then wrote the music column for Seven Days and is now working in DC to help find ways for musicians to get paid for their music. Yea!! I really wanted to check out Vertigo at Radio Bean last night, but the ankle said no. Killer song from Band X who sort of evolved into Elephants of Scotland. OK, let’s go on to the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through week after week, song after song.

9.) Who could Say – The Mountain Says No
10.) Mad Captain – Brother Zag
11.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara
12.) Abilene – The Lonestar Chain

I’ve been watching the flooding in Texas and saw a mention on the Weather Chanel of Abilene and thought of Burette Douglas and this song. Killer song from Hana. Zag is one of the known unknown cool artists in town. Mountain will be at Radio Bean on Saturday and I really want to make it to the show. I was thinking of checking out this next band when they played Summervale today, but walking down the hill away from the radio station was not going to happen today, short of an act from God.

13.) Dear God – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band
14.) Dancing In Dreamtime – Jerichovox
15.) Holiday – Guppyboy
16.) Old Man – Will

Killer song from the Rutland band from the early 2000’s. When they broke up they became Thompson Gunner and Split Tongue Crow. Killer song from the classic ’90’s band. Jericho are playing around a bit and were really cool when I saw them a couple of months back. OK, let’s go back to the early ’80’s, or maybe ’70’s.

17.) At The Diner – Zoot Wilson
18.) 2012 – Lobot
19.) Waterlanding – Swale
20.) Ladders – Heavy Plains

Nice song from the super new band who will be at Nectar’s tomorrow. Swale and one other band will be there too. A few weeks back Chris Farnsworth gave me a collection of songs that Lobot had left over. That one was pretty cool. Hmmm, Zoot. This next band is the other one playing Nectar’s tomorrow.

21.) Ruffians – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Gas And Oil – Gas And Oil
23.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight
24.) Stop – REDadmirial

Admiral were at The Old North Ender last night. I had hopes of checking out some of them then heading to the Bean for Vertigo, but it was the couch and ice for me. I’ve got to go see them! Killer song from the 2000’s punk band. Gas was Beano Parker, from the Wards, side project and really rocked! OK, in classic Burlington style, this next band will be at the Bean at the same time as the Nectar’s show tomorrow. Rats!! I love this band.

25.) It’s Happening – Anachronist
26.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
