Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Thursday September 20. You can stream it from the website or here: WBKM. It will go as follows.

Song before – Wiser Time – The Black Crowes

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin with an artist who played almost 4 hours last night at Red Square.

1.) Other Side Of The Rain – Robin Gottfried
2.) Waikiki – The Essex Green
3.) Pale Blue Dot – Sputoola
4.) Nature – Madaila

Great song from the people who have put so much fun music into our community in the last few years. Cool new song from Sputoola. It will be interesting to see where they go. Another cool song from Essex. Robin is such a great guitar player, and a pretty decent songwriter. OK, This next band will take over the Stone Church in Brattleboro on Friday and Saturday. Get into a nice relaxed state for this one.

5.) Notebook – The Edd
6.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
7.) If I Knew – Binger
8.) By Suicide – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Another great song from the champion of the local library. If you ever feel that far down, please reach out to your friends. We care about you. Cool song from Binger that features Stephanie Heaghney on vocals. I caught her new band JUPTR this weekend at GPN. I’ll have to track down some of their music soon. Nice portrait of Vermont, both good and bad, from the rappers. Cool song from The Edd. OK, so this next band are legends in town. They have been playing for 16 years and will celebrate their birthday Friday at Light Club Lamp Shop. They have created some of the most gorgeous and powerful music that our state has seen. Let’s honor them in the only reasonably possible way.

9.) Overcoat – SWALE
10.) Armadillo – Swale
11.) Felon – Swale
12.) Soul Piggy Bank – Swale

Such beautiful songs. Maybe I should play some more.

13.) Cancer – Swale
14.) Black Boys On Mopeds – Swale
15.) If You Get Lost – Swale
16.) Waiting For You – Swale

From the initial trio of Amanda Gustafson, Eric Olsen, and Jeremy Frederick to the addition of Tyler Bolles Swale have graced our state with power that flows right into your heart. Mopeds is a cover of the Sinead O’Connor song. If you haven’t seen the amazing video that Eric put together, that highlights the staggering amount of violence against black people, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Is that all of the great songs that they have? I don’t think so.

17.) Waterlanding – Swale
18.) Good Medicine – Swale
19.) All Down Tonight – Swale
20.) The Next Instead – Swale

Such great music. If you don’t think I’m going to play 16 Swale songs to celebrate their sweet 16, you don’t know me very well.

21.) Elevator – Swale
22.) Everyone Likes To – Swale
23.) Popular Crowd – Swale
24.) Drug Laws – Swale

Happy 16th birthday Swale. Here’s to many more! OK, here is the next song on MSP3 Counter Attack.

25.) Geese – ROUGH FRANCIS
26.) Collider – Doom Service
27.) Junior – Clever Girls

Clever played a killer set at GPN. They will be at The Monkey House on Sunday and Nectar’s next Wednesday. Doom will be at Jim’s Basement on Sunday. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Song before: Piano Music – Porcupine Tree

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been enjoying the new album Hardly Electronic from this opening band, so let’s begin with some piano music.

1.) In The Key Of Me – The Essex Green
2.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
3.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot
4.) Adventure Safari – The Mountain Carol

It was so cool when Carol came in for a session of Live From Robot Dog Studio and instead of playing the electronic keys, Bruce played Ryan Cohen‘s sweet sounding piano. Great song from Andriana. I caught a couple of sets of her music last Friday at Red Square. She was as amazing as always. Great song and huge build from Carraway and super cool song form Essex. OK, the big event in town this weekend is Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival. Be sure to get there early. Here are some of the great bands who are opening the show.

5.) Falter – Julia Caesar
6.) Soul No. 5 – Caroline Rose
7.) The Violent Stain Of My Bleeding Heart – Seth Yacovone Band
8.) Flaca Daza – Miku Daza
9.) Loose Tooth – Clever Girls

All of those bands are going to rock GPN hard. Caroline has gotten big but spent a lot of time in town. I’m so excited for both days and will be there early. I saw Clever Girls play a brilliant show last weekend at Art Hop. This next band came on after and played a blistering show. Last week, I played the last song on The Uncanny Doom Service, so let’s begin playing MSP3 Counter Attack, song after song, week after week, until it’s wrapped up.

10.) Big Box Law Enforcement – ROUGH FRANCIS
11.) Still Life Scene – Envy
12.) Whirlpool Rider – The High Breaks
13.) Mighty Have Fallen – Barbacoa

They played a brilliant show at Robot Dog Studio last week and that song really caught me. Cool new song from the Breaks. Classic from Envy. Great song from Francis who use the new album to stare racism in the face and offer peace and love as a counter attack. This song has been running through my head lately, so hopefully it will get stuck in your too.

14.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
15.) On My Way – Hover
16.) Veratrum – Piqued
17.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time

Cool song from a band who have lots of shows scheduled all around Vermont. I wanted to revisit the song from Piqued, since it’s so cool. I hope they stop by town soon. Classic from the ’90’s from Hover. Great song from Hammy. OK, this next artist has put out a few cool albums but when he plays with his band he sounds just a little different. Here’s a song form his upcoming album.

18.) Gravity – Milton Busker & The Grim Work
19.) Loser – SWALE
20.) Underheard – Ivamae
21.) Silent River – Steady Betty

Betty’s songs always put me in a happy place. I hope it does the same for you. Great song from Ivamae. When I think of happy songs with depressing lyrics, I think of Swale. I think Milton is proving himself just as able. OK, last night I finally caught up with this singer in a movie theater at The Double E. This song digs into the pros and cons of life in America in a visceral way. The song after is the story of a kid asking mom why she would bring a child into this world. I think you’ll like the answer.

22.) Which America – Jason Baker
23.) Love – Hana Zara
24.) The Divine Feminine – Ouzkxqlzn
25.) Super Powers – The Dead Shakers

I love that song from the Shakers. I caught Lauren Costello playing at Art Hop, and despite calling her band an unpronounceable name, she is completely amazing. Hana asks mom why she was brought into the world. Mom says to fill you with love and to send you into the world to spread it. Great, if somewhat harsh, song form Jason. OK, he finished this year’s library tour, but has begun to book next years. What a cool way to support Vermont’s libraries.

27.) This City – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
28.) Give It Up To The Night – Bad Smell
29.) Infinity Pools – The Smittens
30.) Ghosts – Troy Millette Music
31.) Rainy Alley – Totally Submerged

Wishing the best for the people in the Carolina’s. Cool song from Submerged. Great song from Troy. I’m loving the new Smittens album City Rock Dove and expect to keep diving deeper. Super cool song from Smell and great song from David. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

outro

Songs after
