Song before Happy X-Mas (War Is Over) – Joshua Glass Music

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Yesterday I bought a cool Christmas gift from an amazing local musician so I thought I should begin with some of his music.

1.) The Positives Of Ten Degrees – The DuPont Brothers
2.) The Toy – Hana Zara
3.) Hallelujah – SWALE
4.) Black 17 – The New Siberians

That’s another great song from Black, Blue, And White, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. What a fun version of that song by Swale. I thought Toy would be a seasonally appropriate Hana song, even if the subject is a little different. It was nice chatting with you yesterday Sam. OK, let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for the last interview and live performance on my radio show this year.

5.) Car Bomb – Zeus Springsteen
6.) Signal Loss – Zeus Springsteen
7.) I’ll Find You Dindone Fontaine – Zeus Springsteen
8.) What’s Inside A Thing – Zeus Springsteen

Thanks so much Zeus for rocking so hard and Ryan Cohen for making us sound great. We did 16 of the live at Robot Dog shows this year and I hope you have enjoyed getting a small taste of the live music scene in Burlington. I’ve already got a couple of bands lined up in early 2017, and a cool announcement on the way. OK, it’s winter and beginning to get cold.

9.) Cold – Seth Yacovone Band
11.) It’s Cold – Black Rabbit
12.) The Wrong List – Savage Hen
13.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No

Great song from a rocking band who are amazing live. See you in January! Such a fun Christmas song from Hen. That was recorded earlier this year at Robot Dog. Nice seasonally appropriate songs from Seth and Rabbit. OK, here is a fun version of a classic.

14.) Funky Little Drummer Boy – Soule Monde (Ray Paczkowski & Russ Lawton)
15.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
16.) When The Nights Get Long – Carraway
17.) Just Another Day (Christmas) – Swale

Another great holiday song from Swale. They will play a show at Light Club Lamp Shop on Saturday which should be really fun. The Carraway and Andriana songs sound like what it feels like on the longest night of the year. This song has that feel too.

18.) The Mountain Carol – The Mountain Carol
19.) The Last Carol – The Cush
20.) It’s Christmas – Swale
21.) The Bells of Electric Haloland – Electric Halo
22.) Winter Serenade – Electric Halo

Halo are on of Joe Adler‘s many projects and sounds so great at this time of year. Another great song from Swale, who will play the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts on New Year’s Eve. That song from The Cush just warms my heart. OK, here’s another cool Swale song.

23.) Snow Angel – Swale
24.) Carol Of The Bells – Gordon Stone
25.) Silver Bells – Josh Glass and Jackie Buttolph
26.) Santa Baby – Samara Lark Brown

Samara will be at Radio Bean on Friday with lots of other cool people. Great versions of the classics from Josh, Jackie and Gordon. This next performer will be at Radio Bean tomorrow too.

27.) Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer – Linda Bassick
28.) Frosty The Snowman – Construction Joe
29.) Little Drummer Boy – Aaron Flinn
30.) Winter Wonderland – Josh Glass

Those are all fun versions of the classics. Here are some more.

32.) White Christmas – Giovanina Bucci

Song before: Cover Me – Bruce Springsteen

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I hope everyone had a nice Halloween and tomorrow is my mother’s birthday so Happy Birthday Mom! Let’s begin with a local musician who just released an album called Other Side Of The Rain.

1.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried
2.) Movin’ Out At The End Of The Night – Ben Slotnick
3.) Alone In The Night – Andriana Chobot
4.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn

I just love that song by Aaron. He is talented and wonderful and writes such lovely songs. The Andriana song is inspired by the shortening days and lengthening nights. I want to thank Ben and Robin for getting in touch and letting me know about their new music so I can play it for you. Great stuff. OK, last night I went to Phoenix Books Essex & Burlington and saw performances by Swale and Mark Daly, but the main event was Ray Padgett and Brent Hallenbeck talking about Ray’s new book about cover songs. It’s called Cover Me and it was fascinating to hear stories of why rock bands choose to cover other bands songs. This next set was inspired by that discussion.

5.) She’s Leaving Home – Silver Bridget
6.) Sitting Still – Ninja Custodian
7.) Dizzy – Peg Tassey MUSIC
8.) The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian
9.) Elanor Rigby – Screaming Broccoli

Broccoli played in the late ’80’s and did a great rocking version of the classic. Casey Merlin Rae also records as The Contrarian and put out a whole EP of Blue Oyster Cult songs in honor of Sandy Pearlman. Ray mentioned Dizzy as one of the great local cover songs so I had to include that one. Ninja began with a few really cool originals but always played lots of covers to fill out long sets at Nectar’s like that REM song. Bridget play all covers but in their own wonderful way. OK, let’s play the next song on the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. It’s a cover too.

10.) Into The Void – Surf Sabbath (The High Breaks)
11.) Resurrection – Death World Wide
12.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
13.) Future Shock – Ruckzuck

I recently came up with the idea of putting Frequency and Shock back to back so I hope you enjoyed that. The version of Shock was from the Robot Dog Studio studio session they did when they were in town in October. Great song by Death. Nice surf version of the Sabbath song. Ryan Cohen has been releasing the Live At Robot Dog performances and interviews as a podcast. He just released the one from Clever Girls. Here is a song from that session. They played a rocking version of it last Saturday at The Monkey House.

14.) 45 – Clever Girls
15.) Big Starr – sleeping in
16.) Paying It Forward – Apartment 3
17.) Electric Trim – Lee Ranaldo

Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo played an amazing show at ArtsRiot last night. That is the title song from his new album. Girls, Sleeping, and Apartment played a great show last week at the Monkey House. That was Apartment 3’s last show. Thanks for the music. Speaking about being thankful for the music, Swale opened the show for Ranaldo with this song.

18.) Felon – SWALE
19.) She Moves In Passages – Late Night Sneaky Uncle
20.) Skeleton Star – The Cush
21.) Uncle Skeleton – Lee Ranaldo

Lee played a super fun version of that song last night. It’s just a couple of days after Halloween so I had to play a couple of skeleton songs. I caught Uncle a few weeks back and it’s about time I got some of their music on the air. Anne-Marie has such a wonderful voice. So does Amanda Gustafson! OK, let’s play one more Lee song.

22.) Moroccan Mountains – Lee Ranaldo
23.) The Light – Kat Wright
24.) I’ve Been Down – Bob Wagner
25.) Ricky The Rider – The Mountain Says No

OK, it’s time to start rocking hard and what better way to start than with Ricky. Great cover song from the amazing Bob Wagner. I love that Kat song. The Lee set last night was just stunning. OK, crank up the volume to 11.

26.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
27.) Drug Laws – Swale
28.) Mr Reed (live) – Seth Yacovone Band

All of those songs rock so hard! Thanks everyone. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

29.) Sayonara – Black Rabbit

Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will stream at WBKM.ORG and (FB) on Thursday July 13th from 9-11pm US Eastern time and will go as follows.

Song before: Do It Again – The Kinks

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  Last Friday Swale finally released their new album There’s No One Here.  It’s a double album with red vinyl and lots of amazing artwork.  There are a ton of fantastic songs on the album  Let’s begin tonight with what is almost the title song.

1.) Loser – Swale

2.) High Flying Bird – Anders Parker

3.) One From Two – Linda Bassick

4.) Lowdown – Vedora

Vedora rocked our town for a couple of years and Caroline is still out there making similar sounding music.  Great song from Linda.  Cool song from Anders album The Man Who Fell From Earth.  That’s such a fun and sad song from Swale.  They excel at that, as you will hear throughout the course of the evening.  OK, here is the next song on Action, the EP I am playing all the way through song after song week after week.  It’s the third EP in their “album” Lights, Camera, Action.

5.) Mass Murderer – 1881

6.) Cereal – Carraway

7.) Bird In A Cage – Swale

8.) The Nighthorses – The Cush

When listening to the new Swale album something about Bird reminded me of the Cush song so I thought it would be fun to play them back to back.  That’s an interesting way to spell the Carraway song.  Great stuff from 1881.  This next band are playing at Sidebar tonight.

9.) Taung Child Mastered – The Dead Shakers

10.) Spastic Tactics – The Edd

11.) Counting On A Ghost – Elephants Of Scotland

12.) Lead Me To Your Love – The New Siberians

Great song from Siberians Black Blue and White album.  Great song from Elephants.  Nice trippy song from the Edd who will play a show for us in a few weeks.  I loved the Shakers the one time I saw them.  Last night I went to Nectar’s and saw these two bands, and need to get some music from the other one who played.

13.) Cascade – Andriana Chobot

14.) Megaphone – Josh Glass

15.) Silver Dollars – Banana Schlitz

16.) Felon – Swale

Another great new Swale song that they have been playing at shows for a while now and I finally get to play it for you.  Banana will be at the Flynn Exposure series tomorrow at 5 or so.  Josh and Andriana were amazing last night.  Mal Maiz and Haley Jane were lots of fun too.  We are in the middle of summer and this song is so appropriate.

17.) Endless Sunkissed Lover – Gneiss

18.) Break A Leg – David Rosane And The Zookeepers

19.) Elevator – Swale

20.) It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper

I love how positive and fun that song is.  Super poppy song from Swale about a frightening event.  David and the band will be at American Flatbread next Wednesday.  Gneiss are at Red Square next Thursday.  Here is another song I have heard for a while around town that I now get to share with you.

21.) All Down Tonight – Swale

22.) Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler

23.) Catch And Release – Clever Girls

24.) Control – Ratboys

Ratboys are from Chicago and came and played a show on Saturday at Sidebar with Clever Girls.  Both bands were great.  Joe and his band played a great version of that one a week ago in Winooski.  Great song from Swale.  This next singer is performing tonight for the first time in ages and I could not be more excited!

25.) Boys Club – Peg Tassey

26.) 25 Mile Per Hour Blues – Better Things

27.) 22R – Cave Bees

28.) Drug Laws – Swale

I love how hard that song rocks continuously.  Bees and Things will be at the Monkey House on Saturday.  I love Peg.  I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
