From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. The crocuses are out and I saw a daffodil yesterday Beansie’s Bus is open so Spring is in the air. Let’s begin with an artist who will release a new EP soon.

1.) Leonard – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter
2.) Pope Francis – Bison
3.) Try And Try And Try – The Snaz
4.) Little Girl – Kelly Ravin Music

Kelly recently put out an album called Engine that is so good I will have to play it all the way through, song after song, week after week. That’s the first song and I hope you enjoyed it. I miss the Snaz. Thanks for sending me your new EP Bison! Great song from Jeremy about Mr Cohen. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio and rock out.

5.) The Other Iron Sheik – Doom Service

13.) Partial Recall – Secret Family

That’s such a great song from Binger. Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall Percussion started Smell after a Rock Lotto performance a few years ago. Girls Rock Vermont is sponsoring another one on Saturday with the bands who get created in the morning and perform later in the night at Light Club Lamp Shop. A couple of friends recommended Chazy and I like what I hear. Great stuff from Luke’s new band. OK, let’s trip out for a while with a band who are at SideBar tonight.

Song before: The Wanting Comes In Waves/Repaid – The Decemberists

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I just heard that Hana Zara is coming back to town on February 11th and I’m very excited. Let’s begin with a song about coming home.

1.) Zion Boat – Hana Zara
2.) Shady Grove – Ben Slotnick – Mandolinist
3.) And The Gods – The New Siberians
4.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue

I haven’t caught up with Cricket in a while and they are playing the show with Hana next month and that just makes it even more great. Another great song from the Siberians album Black, Blue, and White. Cool song from Ben. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for some live music and an interview with The Mountain Says No.

5.) The Jam – The Mountain Says No
6.) If You Lie – The Mountain Says No
7.) Right Bright Lord – The Mountain Says No
8.) 3,000 Incubators – The Mountain Says No

Thanks Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great and thanks Mountain! OK, let’s rock.

9.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls
10.) Not Good – Peg Tassey MUSIC
11.) Morning Again – Doll Fight
12.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy

I caught Poxy a couple of times at 242 Main. I think they broke up but were loud and furious for a while. Doll fight were an amazing band. I’m glad they left us so much great music. Peg rocked us hard in the ’90’s and hopefully will again in the future. Great song from Clever. This next band just released an album called Odd Todd.

13.) Two Girls – Comrade Nixon
14.) Buy Two, Get None Free – Crime Scene
15.) Fear Monger – Get A Grip
16.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
17.) Gross Indecency – Comrade Nixon

I figured if I was playing a song about indecency I had to play the Doubtfire song too. Grip and Crime are from a new Vt hardcore album from Get Stoked! Records. Nice work from Comrade. So, Rough Francis just released a new EP! Here it is.

18.) Don’t Look Back – ROUGH FRANCIS
19.) Hangin’ On – Rough Francis
20.) Waiting – Rough Francis

Pigs was the b-side from MSP2. The other three are all great and new songs. Yea. OK, let’s keep rocking.

25.) The Snake->The Violent Strain Of My Broken Heart – Seth Yacovone Band.

That was recorded at Nectar’s December 16, 2017. Thanks Archive.Org. 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 doing my local music radio show. I walked in unprepared but think I pulled out a fun one.

Song before: The Rakes Song – The Decemberists

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s 9pm and already dark. It’s still been rainy and chilly at night and sunny and warm but not super hot. It looks like this will not be one of the warmer summers on record, but there have been many stunning days. I caught some of The Precipice: A Vermont Music Festival last weekend and saw some great music. One of the artists that I really enjoyed was Abbie Morin, so I got her album and here is Peace Of Mind on WBKM.org and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Peace Of Mind – Abbie Morin
2.) I Walk The Line – Zoot Wilson
3.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
4.) Two Sleepy Arms – Lendway

The High Breaks played a super cool show at Radio Bean at the Precipice. Three of the guys used to be in Lendway, so I wanted to play Arms since I have no Breaks to play. I love Split Tongue Crow and that is just a gorgeous song. Fun cover from Zoot. I think he said that was the modern version. Abbie is going to hit the road soon. If she’s in your town, check out her show. After the Breaks set I ran into Todd Gevry and asked if he had heard of And The Kids. He said he had heard the name. I recommended staying and listening. After their set he seemed pretty enthusiastic. I thought they were great and they played a killer version of this song.

5.) All Day All Night – And The Kids
6.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler
7.) Sequoia 3 – Binger
8.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
9.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

I’m missing the Republican debate tonight, and I’m assuming I’m just going to miss 10-17 people saying the same Approved Talking Points. I had to play Bernie to counter some of that. Bill’s message still resonates hard. Binger played a killer version of 3 at the Precipice, and some pretty killer other songs too. I caught a bit of Johnnie Day Durand playing saw at The Precipice and wanted to play Brothers to give you a hint, and to thank Joe for all that he has done to make our town sound great. Love that Kids song. I’m going to play this next song because I love it and it’s great.

10.) If You Get Lost – Swale
11.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
12.) It’s Real Again – Zola Turn

I think I played all three of those songs because I love them and they are great. OK, on to the next song from The Mountain Says No’s album JV. This is the eponymous song.

13.) The Mountain – The Mountain Says No
14.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
15.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse
16.) Holmes, Sweet Holmes – Cameo Harlot

I miss Harlot. Crazy just played the Radio Bean last Tuesday. I love the Vetica song. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s go classic.

17.) First Kiss – Peg Tassey MUSIC
18.) Flypaper – Persian Claws
19.) Always Monica-Down At The Duck – Chin Ho

Three Burlington classics from three different eras. Great songs too. This is another beautiful song that I love.

20.) If Time Was A River – Anna Pardenik
21.) WhoNeedsFriends – Paper Castles
22.) Clocks On the Wall – Jeremy Gilchrist

Great song with great lyrics. Thanks Jeremy. Castles played a killer set at the Precipice at the Light Club Lamp Shop. Great song from Anna. This next song seems to be getting some traction.

23.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
24.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian
25.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

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 promised it would start a little slow, get a bit experimental, then end with a bang. I think I delivered nicely.

After their show I played:

Firth of Fifth (live) – Genesis (With Peter Gabriel)
To Be Over – Yes (official)
Weeping Willow – Persian Claws

Song before: Lake Song – The Decemberists

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s fairly warm for a January night, through the wind is a little cool. It was a nice walk in this evening and it was a nice walk downtown last night when I saw this first singer at Nectar’s. This is Better Half by Abbie Morin on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Better Half – Abbie Morin
2.) Hopin’ That I’m Wrong – Will
3.) Powder – The New Siberians

Great song from the Siberians last album. They achieved their Kickstarter goal but if people keep chipping in, they will make the album cooler. Love that song from Will. I’ve got to check out Abbie again, maybe sometime when a killer band did not just play before her. OK, on to the next song from Joe Adler‘s Many Things & Many Scenes.

4.) Many A Girl (Back of a Sail) – Joe Adler
5.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
6.) Lawnfire – The Pants
7.) Burn It Down Bernadette – Phil Yates & The Affiliates

Great song from the upcoming new Phil album. Classic ’90’s band The Pants, and I had to play a song of theirs following the ATK song. Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger played a nice version of that at Nectar’s last night, as well as some stunning versions of some of his other songs. I’m slowly getting to know this next band.

8.) This Machine – Invisible Homes
9.) Space Opera – Aram Bedrosian
10.) AV6 – Bad Smell
11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila

I should check out their music more. I really like that song. Nice music from Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall Percussion. Burlington is such a small town, I ran into Aram in the grocery store before the show. Last week I played two new Alice Austin songs but she put three out. I would be remiss if I did not play the third one.

12.) What If I Don’t Go? – Alice Austin
13.) Ordinary Day – Milton Busker
14.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
15.) The Time Traveler – Jeremy Gilchrist

Jeremy is doing the Rock Lotto thing Saturday morning. It’s where a bunch of musicians form new bands for the day, write three songs and do one cover and play the songs later that evening at Club Metronome. Any other musicians up for the challenge? It’s a benefit to raise money for Girls Rock Vermont. Great song from Hana. I can’t wait for the new album. It’s going to have tons of great songs!! I love that song by Milton. I saw this next band once, and would like to see them again.

16.) Singing Songs In Your Sleep – Carraway
17.) Grounded – Invisible Jet
18.) Open Road – Death World Wide
19.) Hungry – Heavy Plains

HP have their debut album coming out. They are playing Saturday at The Monkey House. Nice song from Death’s third album. Cool song from the ’90’s in Burlington. OK, let’s rock for a while.

20.) Hello World – Screaming Skulls
21.) Extouring – Jesus Christ and the Hallucinogenic Allstars
22.) Tic Toc – Doll Fight
23.) Vestibule – Blue Button

Killer song from BB. I miss Dollfight. I’ve got to catch JCHA sometime. In Burlington, there is a part of town called the Old North End and its residents are proud.

24.) Old North Ender – James Kochalka Superstar
25.) North Street – Death
26.) Wino – REDadmiral

That song was recorded live at the Old North Ender Pub on North St. Nice song from Death’s third album. It’s almost time to go but let’s rock a bit more.

27.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
28.) Institution Street – The Red Telephone
29.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
30.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons

Nice eponymous song from FTC. Wow, they rocked hard for a couple of years in town. Killer song from Rabbit. I love that rocker from RT. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
