Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show on 107.1FM WBKM will run from 9-11pm US Eastern time June 8, 2017 and will go as follows:

Song before: I Will Dare – The Replacements

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It was a rainy week but the last couple of days have been beautiful and sunny and this town is filled to the brim with jazz. Tonight’s show will be a jazz free zone. Let’s begin with a new wispy piece of music from one of the classic bands in town.

1.) Here’s Where You Were – SWALE
2.) She Has Your Name – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
3.) Bulldozer – The Zero Likes
4.) Nightingale – 1881

That is the next song from Lights, Camera, Action and is the first song on the Camera EP. Great song. Zero Likes feature Doug McAllister from Ninja Custodian and Doug just sent me that a couple of days ago. Thanks!! Great song by Phil Yates and the band. Phil is moving on to Chicago soon and will play one more show tomorrow at The Monkey House. I will be thee. Hmmm, Swale. OK, last night I went over to Robot Dog Studio and recorded an interview with live songs from Dino Bravo. I want to thank Ryan Cohen for doing the sound, Jeff Arbor for helping to set up and Tom Wolf for doing video. Here we go.

5.) Sugar Coated Candy Stix – Dino Bravo VT
6.) Strawberry Blonde – Dino Bravo
7.) Crime Scene – Dino Bravo
8.) A Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo

Thanks for rocking us nice and hard Dino! They mentioned they have an upcoming show with The Dirty Blondes so let’s play one of their songs.

9.) Yayo – Dirty Blondes
10.) Whiskey High – Swillbillie
11.) Too Good – Black Rabbit
12.) Ninjas Vs Zombies (Let’s Keep Our Heads) – Phil Yates

I’m happy for Phil but sad that he won’t be playing around all the time anymore. I’ve enjoyed many shows over the years and have played his music on my radio show since the second one I did in March of 2013. Black Rabbit will play the show with them tomorrow over at the Monkey House. I think Swillbillie will play the upcoming Nectar’s show with Dino and the Blondes. OK, this next band are in town tomorrow night for a show at Jim’s basement.

13.) Two Weeks (‘Til The End Of The World) – Grand
14.) On A Sunday – Screaming Broccoli
15.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
16.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another classic from Phil and the band. Great cover of the Stones song by Bridget. Broccoli played back in the late ’80’s in Burlington and were lots of fun. Grand are so much fun. I really like a lot of Phil’s songs but he and the band have played many shows with some really fun bands and I got to know them because of Phil. Here are a couple.

17.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
18.) Jessie – Danny LeFrancois and The Parts
19.) Tropa – YURT
20.) Flicker (Song For Clara) – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Another great Phil song. Phil and the band played with Yurt at the Monkey House in July of 2016. They played with The Parts at Manhattan Pizza and Pub in January of this year. They played with Color Exchange at Nectar’s in 2015. This next band also played that show.

21.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
22.) Place ov Dead Roads – Casey Merlin Rae
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) Grass is Always Greener – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

That one features Raph Worrick on the keys. Great rocking song from Kat and the band. Their guitar player, Bob Wagner, is joining Seth Yacovone Band tonight at Nectar’s for a band they are calling Water For Gasoline. That’s a brand new song from Casey Merlin Rae, who is living in Washington DC but comes back to play now and then. Great song from Homes. OK, there is not much time left so let’s play a few more songs as we say goodbye to the mighty and wonderful Phil Yates.

25.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
26.) Burn It Down, Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
27.) Might As Well Settle – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
28.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

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

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
outro

Song before: The Man With The Child In His Eyes – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  Today is my birthday so I’m going to celebrate by playing some of my favorite songs.  I hope you like them too.  If your band is not on tonight’s play list, it’s not that I don’t love you, it’s just I had two hours to pick music and I love far more than two hours worth. Every song on tonight’s list is one that I love.

1.) Angle Of The Sun – Peg Tassey
2.) Megan’s Song – Hana Zara
3.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday
4.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn

Aaron is such a great guitar player and such a great guy and has a great voice and I love that song.  The Bern song has really gotten to me.  I love how easy to sing it is.  Hana is just stunning and that is such a touching song.  Peg has been one of my favorites for a long time and that is such a beautiful song, on so many levels.  OK, it’s time for the next song on Callisto.

5.) Been So Long – Alpenglow
6.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
7.) Sober – Vedora
8.) Release The Beast – The Mountain Says No

I remember thinking that was the greatest song I had ever heard by Mountain when I first heard it.  Now I feel that way about their newer songs that will be on their next album, but since it’s not recorded yet I had to play Beast.  Vedora used to play Sober a lot when they played shows after the first album came out.  I’m glad they got that one onto the second album.  I love the huge sound.  Brothers always just fills my heart with love.  I want to send that one out to my brother Ken.  That’s such a cool song from Alpenglow.  It’s been fun hearing them evolve.  So, on Tuesday night I went over to The Monkey House and saw four great bands.  I loved the sets from Tyler Daniel Bean and Better Things.  The Path opened the night with a killer punk set.  The other band who played are one that I have come to just love.  They come around once or twice a year and always play a blistering show.  I love every song on their new album and want to showcase them a bit right now.  Thanks for everything Slingshot Dakota!!

9.) Paycheck – Slingshot Dakota
10.) Until The Day I Die – Slingshot Dakota
11.) I-78 – Slingshot Dakota
12.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

I love the new album and that song especially.  When I first saw them I got a CD single with Day and 78 run together and still love those songs.  It’s like the idea of love flowing into the practice of love.  Paycheck is such a great song.  I was so psyched when they opened with it.  OK, let’s play a great rock and roll song.

13.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
14.) Satellite – Guster
15.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
16.) The Next Instead – Swale

I love so many of Swale;s songs.  Picking one was hard, but Next always gets me going.  Color came to town and played Nectar’s one night a year or so ago.  I’ve loved Sparks ever since.  Ryan Miller from Guster keeps turning up at cool local events.  Satellite is such a great song.  I love how it sounds back to back with Sparks.  Earthquakes always rocks me.  I’m beginning to really like a lot of songs on Binger’s new album, but this one from their last EP always lights me up.

17.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
18.) Symptom Of The Universe – Surf Sabbath
19.) Bulletproof Vest – Zola Turn
20.) Orange Like Water – The Cush

I was lucky enough to see The Cush many times when they lived in Vermont.  That is from their most recent album and it’s great to know they are still making great music and I can’t wait until the next time they are able to come back and enchant us.  I’ve always loved Zola and wanted to play Vest because it rocks so hard.  I love The High Breaks and their rearranged Sabbath songs are just wonderful.  Hmmm Binger.  Keep writing those great words and playing that great music.  This is a great song from one of the most elegantly powerful bands to come out of Burlington.

21) Somewhere Far – The Red Telephone
22.) Breathing In – The Hero Cycle
23.) 1965 – The New Siberians
24.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker

We are on the cusp of summer and that one always reminds me of beautiful summer nights.  I’m 51 today and was born in 1965.  Hero are a band I caught a couple times in their short incarnation and love the sweep of their songs.  I love a lot of Telephone songs but that one was just calling to me.  On Monday, the Dirty Blondes are playing at Nectar’s.  I love them because they rock so hard.

25.) Ornan’s Song – Dirty Blondes
26.) TFAY – Elephants Of Scotland

I love that Elephant’s song.  Ornan plays drums for both bands.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week.  Bye.  See Ya.  Sayonara.

27.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

outro

Songs after: Garden Party/Market Square Heroes – Marillion

Tantalized – The Church

Sparks – The Color Exchange

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I just got back from seeing music at the last installment of Summervale, the weekly festival that happens every Thursday in Burlington’s Intervale. The darkness began settling in during the middle of the set and the change of seasons is upon us. The music was great, and I’ll talk about that in a bit, but one person has done a lot to make the music happen, Joe Adler, and it was his birthday. To help celebrate, I’m going to go back to an album I received last week and play a fun song.

1.) Happy Birthday Freak Of Science – Mailbox
2.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
3.) Papa’s Child – Currently Nameless

It was fun reading Dan Bolles mention of nameless and finding the balance of clever but not too clever for their name. They are playing a reunion show at Higher Ground Saturday night. Cool party song from Wave and great song from Adam Rabin. At Summervale tonight is was Michael Chorney, Francesca Blanchard, and Joe Adler. Each told a story then played a song then passed it to the next player. Michael was a bit more quiet but his guitar playing was so elegant. Francesca played guitar beautifully and had some great articulation to her vocals all night long. Joe was the storytelling ringmaster and played a bunch of fun songs. Here is a hint of what it sounded like.

4.) A Quiet Pun – Joe Adler
5.) Wanderer – Francesca Blanchard
6.) Guitar – Michael Chorney

Such great music tonight. Yea, Joe has played a lot of music in this town and booked a lot of music in this town and has gotten a lot of people excited about music in this town and it’s his birthday, so let’s play some of his music.

7.) Coffee & Eggs – Joe Adler
8.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
9.) Burning Down The House – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

That was Joe and the band live at Nectar’s. They are such a fun band. The song in the middle was from his star-studded solo album, and the first was from the 11-11-11 EP. OK, in non Joe news, this band is coming to The Monkey House on the 16th. They are a great band and I’ve loved them more and more every time I’ve seen them. You should really check them out Joe!!

10.) Until The Day I Die->I-78 – Slingshot Dakota
11.) Annex & Index – Doom Service
12.) Infamous U-Turn – Zola Turn

Classic song from the ’90’s. That’s a new Doom song from the F*@! Cancer compilation to raise money for Leukemia research. Their singer guitar player Jeff Foran has been fighting it so I wanted to let people know about it, and bought a copy of the album today. Every little bit helps. Killer songs from Slingshot. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the killer album from The Mountain Says No. This may be one of the best songs from Burlington ever.

13.) The Bomb – The Mountain Says No
14.) Bomb – Envy
15.) All My Life – Wide Wail

Two great songs from the ’90’ and one from today. We’re so lucky in Burlington. Let’s keep rocking.

16.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
17.) Yardsale – Lendway
18.) Hoping That I’m Wrong – Will

Great song from the Rutland band. Hmm, Lendway. OK, let’s play another fun Mailbox song.

19.) Under The Horse – Mailbox
20.) Freak Out Friday – Rue Mevlana
21.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Kat and the band are at Radio Bean tonight and playing on Church St next Thursday. Rue have a couple of shows coming up Saturday at the Off Center For The Dramatic Arts. This next singer is one of my all time favorites.

22.) Not True – Peg Tassey MUSIC
23.) Finder – The Madelines
24.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler and the Rangers of Danger

That was Joe and the band live at Nectar’s. Happy Birthday Joe! Finder was another classic ’90’s song. OK, time to take off I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town, let’s do it again next week, shall we. Here’s Black Rabbit to take us out.

25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit
Ourto

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. It cooled off a little this week and we had a nice thunder and lightning storm, but today was a beautiful sunny day. There are lots of people about and a joyous spirit in the air. I drove to New Hampshire and back yesterday and the mountains of Vermont are lush with tons of shades of green. Enjoy this moment and enjoy your loved ones whenever you can. It was my birthday this week and I’m going to pull out a few of the bands and songs I’m most passionate about. If your band is not on this list it’s more that I only have two hours, not that I meant to miss you. This song has been rocking my world lately. This is Little French Earthquakes by Phil Yates and the Affiliates on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) Teenage Mother Earth – The Red Telephone
3.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
4.) Tibbar Tibbar – Black Rabbit

I knew I had to play a Rabbit song and that was the first one that really caught me, and still does. Love that classic from ZT. It must have been a beautiful time, it must have been a terrible time, it must have been a beautiful terrible time indeed. That one has been speaking to me lately. Let’s continue through Swale’s album The Next Instead.

5.) Golden Crutch – Swale
6.) It Shows – Sarah Blacker
7.) Presence – Satori Bob
8.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara

I love the way Hana’s lyrics walk you through a picture. Great song from John Baumann and Robert Gagnon. That’s another song from Sarah’s new album In Waves. It’s not quite out but can be pre-ordered. This next artist is in California, but put a ton of music into this town over several years.

9.) Never Cry Halo – Alice Austin
10.) Chuck Berry – Dino Bravo VT
11.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
12.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons

They put on some very intense rock shows in the 2000’s. Classic from Ninja. Dino just played a show in Stowe where they were billed as Dino Barvo, possibly and puppet show. This next band have a new album and a new video for this song.

13.) Playtime – Death World Wide
14.) Mine All Mine – Cave Bees
15.) Gas and Oil – Gas and Oil
16.) This Machine – Invisible Homes

I love the nod to Woody Guthrie and the idea of killing fascist ideas with words and music and ideas and inspiration instead of with bullets. Killer song from Beano Parker’s non Wards band. There’s everything to love about the Cave Bees. Speaking of ideas that could kill fascists and Woody.

17.) This Land Is Your Land – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians
18.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
19.) U Can Love If U Want To – Peg Tassey MUSIC
20.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright

That was recorded live at Radio Bean. It doesn’t get more Burlington than that. Killer song from Peg. Brothers and Sisters is dedicated to my brother Ken and all of the musicians that I feel are my brothers and sisters. You know who you are. Thanks for the beautiful song Joe! Bernie is the kind of guy who has spent his whole life trying to kill fascists with wonderful ideas. OK, on Tuesday I turned 50. That means I was born in….

21.) 1965 – The New Siberians
22.) Statistik – The Mountain Says No
23.) TFAY – Elephants of Scotland
24.) Plastic Revolution – Doll Fight

Love that song from DF. Revolution Doll style now! I just love that Elephants song so much! I finally got the Mountain songs into a playable format. I love the build in that song. Yea, Siberians. This is a great song from a friend of the show.

25.) Letter From The 21st – Jeremy Gilchrist
25.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
26.) Ships – Anais Mitchell

I just love that song. I’ve loved the Maryse Smith song since I first heard it. 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. It’s dark now, but the days are getting longer and it was fully twilight when I walked down tonight. Thanks for putting up with all of the Lendway songs last week. I’m not doing that tonight but did want to say I will miss Michael Clifford‘s other band too. Michael, stay safe in California. Enjoy the ocean, but take care to not become a shark victim. This is their theme song on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Theme Song – Shark Victim
2.) Ready To Race – Lendway
3.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No
4.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Great song from the new Affiliates album No Need To Beg. They played a fun show at New City Galerie last week to release the album. Killer song from Mountain. I cant’ wait to hear the full album. Great song from Lendway and I will miss SV a lot too. Let’s continue to move through Swale’s album The Next Instead. They played this on WCAX recently.

5.) Old School – Swale
6.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith
7.) The Deepest Space – Hana Zara
8.) By My Side – Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band

Great song from Kat and the band. Killer new song from Hana’s album The North. That one really goes into some deep spaces. Great song from the just released Maryse Smith album The Way It Is. This next band opened for Phil, but they played as an acoustic duo, instead of the usual heavy rockers that they are. They did a sweet version of this song.

9.) Neutrino – Black Rabbit
10.) Captain 20 – Barbacoa
11.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
12.) Relief – Death World Wide

Killer song from the N.E.W. album by Death. Francis played a killer show with Barbacoa last Saturday at Higher Ground. It was cool to see Bill
Mullins play a couple of songs with Francis, and the Barbacoa set with Lowell Thompson was pretty killer too. At the same time that was happening Vedora were playing at Radio Bean so I missed them, but do have a new song from them.

13.) Low Down M2 – Vedora
14.) In Waves – Sarah Blacker
15.) The Whiskey Always Wins – When Particles Collide
16.) The Globe – Landlady

I was so psyched when I heard Landlady were coming to The Monkey House on April 24th (tomorrow) but then realized I would be out of town. Rats. If you are in town, go check them out. Thank me later. Great new song from Particles. If you like that, go to their website where you can pre-order their new EP. That’s the title song from Sarah’s new album that is coming soon. Can’t wait for the full Vedora album. So, tomorrow I’m heading to Montreal for three days of Marillion shows. They have a couple of side shows at a brew pub called Brutopia. On Saturday, Elephants of Scotland are playing so it will be great to see them play in Montreal.

17.) A Different Machine (live) – Elephants of Scotland
18.) Neverland (live) – Marillion

They played at Club Toast once as a three-piece many years ago. So, I totally slacked and missed some chances to see music this week. I’m going to have to catch up with this band soon.

19.) Stop – REDadmiral
20.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
21.) Always Monica – Chin Ho
22.) New Age Woman – Pinhead

Classics from Pinhead and Chin Ho! I love that song from Wave which was recorded live at Nectar’s. OK, time for a few more. Here’s another great one from Maryse.

23.) I Got A Job – Maryse Smith
24.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
25.) Something I Drew – farm
26.) Resurrection – Death

Another cool song from their new album. Great song from Farm. I hope Split Tongue Crow have a new album soon, the first one has so many beautiful songs. 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 saw a ton of music in the last couple of weeks, including last Thursday when I went to The Monkey House to see Elephants of Scotland play a killer show. I’ll get to that soon, but first it’s been such a lovely day in Burlington. It was sunny and in the high 40’s and people were out and about and the trees are budding and there are the beginnings of flowers at my house. Winter might not be quite done with us, but the signs of spring cannot be denied. This is Garden Flower by Maryse Smith on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) Garden Flower – Maryse Smith
2.) Ferry Ride – Steph Pappas
3.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
4.) Happy Birthday Harry – Hana Zara

That’s another great song from Hana’s new album The North. It was so cool to be at the CD release show at Radio Bean when the place was packed, and people were singing, and it felt like a mini theater and everyone loved and bought her music. I’ll be playing more from that album in the coming weeks. Classic songs from Zoot and Steph, both of whom are Burlington legends. I think Maryse is going to play live on my show in a couple of weeks, so we have that to look forward to. Yea!! Last Saturday I went to the Monkey House and saw Swale, Hallelujah The Hills, and Villanelles and it was great. Each band was tremendous and I’m going to play one from each in this next set. Here is the next song from The Next Instead.

5.) Beaten Down – Swale
6.) Hallelujah The Hills – Hallelujah The Hills
7.) Parking Lot – Villanelles

All three bands were just great. Last Thursday, instead of doing this show, I went to the Monkey House to see Elephants of Scotland and they played a killer long set, with two exciting new songs. Last Monday they played a shorter show, with the new songs, at Nectar’s for Metal Monday, so I had to go to that too. They played this next song at both shows.

8.) Mousetrap (live) Elephants Of Scotland
9.) Yena – Brave The Vertigo
10.) Msp2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

Great song! I can’t wait for the new album!! Vertigo played after Elephants at Metal Monday and were kind of cool, though it was a little hard to get into them after the killer Elephants show. These next two artists used to play around town in the early ’90’s and have recently gotten together for a new project.

11.) Outta Site ’15 – Nother Mother Brothers
12.) T-Bone Stop Sign – Kelly Ravin
13.) Play That Part – Lowell Thompson and Crown Pilot
14.) Shiny Side Up – Nother Mother Brothers

That’s a fun new song from David Jarvis Mark Crowther. I love the idea of being brothers even if not related. That said, it’s good to always remember to tell your family and loved ones how much you care about them. Here’s a very new artist that I don’t know much about. I think it’s a person named Gary Peters from South Burlington.

15.) Collapse Song II (The Painter) – Ghost Weapons
16.) Sparks – The Color Exchange
17.) Burn It Down, Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
18.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
19.) Windows Down – Lendway

It’s only in the ’40’s, but after the long winter, with all the sun today. there were lots of posts about driving around with the windows down. People are out and about and walking around tonight. Lendway are playing with Waylon Speed sometime soon and are at Radio Bean tonight. Cool song from Raph Worrick‘s old band. The new Phil Yates album should be out very soon. Love that song. Exchange played Nectar’s a couple of weeks ago and I still have that song in my head. Here’s a song from a new band I have not seen yet but hope to soon.

20.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains
21.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons
22.) Say It – Anachronist
23.) The Clown – Invisible Homes
24.) Before The Evening’s Thru – THE VACANT LOTS

The lots used to play around town a lot but now play all over the world. Lucky world. I love the “we might just all be clowns” lyric from Homes. Clowns if we’re lucky. Making people laugh and have a good time is something to aspire to. Love the Anachronist song. The FTC song was featured on the Caring Is Knowing benefit album. Burlington is great about doing albums and shows to raise money for worthy causes. I got to see a lot of cool people at the Swale show at the Monkey House last week. It was great to chat with Tyler Bolles, Maryse, Britt Shorter, and it was really nice to talk with Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell to find they are playing together with a bass player. I’m psyched to hear how that sounds. Here is some of the music of their past and present.

25.) 1,000 Lies – Sean Toohey
26.) Imaginary – Envy
27.) Gold In California – The Red Telephone

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. 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

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?
