Song before Run Run Away – Slade

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Burlington has long had a love affair with the music of Leonard Cohen. Let’s begin with a new song written about the legend.

1.) Leonard – Jeremy Gilchrist – Singer-Songwriter

Thanks so much Jane Boxall Percussion, Raph Worrick, and to Ryan Cohen for making us sound so great. OK, so The Tsunamibots might be turning human then back to robots on their upcoming album. Let’s take a look at their human side.

9.) Complacent – The Brand New Luddites
10.) Garabato Funeral – Mal Maïz
11.) Superstar – Original Cast
12.) Acolytes – The Brand New Luddites

Great stuff from the Luddite Bots. Cool song from Maiz Vargas Sandoval. I like to play Superstar at this time of year. Monday would have been my father’s birthday and that is one of the few pieces of music that we both loved. Here’s a cool new song.

Francesca played a brilliant version of that on Monday when she joined Maryse’s weekly residency at Light Club Lamp Shop. Maryse played a great version of that song that night.

Song before: Winter – Tori Amos

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I enjoyed spending the time with my family and friends. It’s now legal to play Christmas songs but I only have a couple lined up tonight. I want to begin tonight by offering my deepest condolences to Gabrielle Douglas who just lost her father. He sounded like an incredible man. Gabby is strong and I want to begin with a beautiful piece of music that she and Burette have given us.

1.) The Last Carol – The Cush
2.) Overcoat – SWALE
3.) Plains – Tom Pearo
4.) Love In The Afternoon – The Thursday Torys

I just heard about the Torys. They are from Lyndon and sound pretty cool and I need to check them out more. Tom is a great musician. That’s from his new Headspace album. It has been chilly out and there have been several nights where taking a walk with a nice overcoat has been a lovely idea. Great song from The Cush. OK, let’s head on over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and four live songs from Eastern Mountain Time.

5.) Fool That I Am – Eastern Mountain Time
6.) All We Need – Eastern Mountain Time
7.) Low Down Mid-December – Eastern Mountain Time
8.) Same Ways – Eastern Mountain Time

I want to thank the band for being so great and to thank Ryan Cohen for making us sound amazing. OK, on the last show I played the last song from the Surf Sabbath album so I have to start a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week. Let’s begin Black, Blue, and White by The New Siberians.

9.) All The Kids – The New Siberians
10.) Judgement Day – David Rosane & The Zookeepers
11.) In The Country – Bardela
12.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association

Sarah played a great version of that a couple of weeks ago at Club Metronome. I love playing that song when it’s cold out to remind us of what is to come. Lovely song by Bardela. Judgement is from the upcoming album Book Of Zoo and I can’t wait for it. Great song from the Siberians from a stellar album. So, on the night before Thanksgiving I went to Radio Bean and Light Club Lamp Shop and saw these next 4 bands.

13.) All Is Lost – The Mountain Carol
14.) Mama – Ivamae
15.) Do U Love U? – Best Fern
16.) Can We Be Still? – Thanya Iyer

Thanya and Fern are from Montreal and are friends and did not know that each other was playing that night. That’s so Burlington. Ivama is amazing and Carol are a really cool band from Plattsburgh. So, we’ve had some dramatic sunrises and sunsets lately with vivid colors. The other night the sky was purple and that always makes me think of this song.

17.) It’s Purple And It Sparkles – Zola Turn
18.) Wish For Winter – Near North
19.) Favorite Bag – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
20.) Complex Vermont – Self Portrait
21.) Militant Mind – Mycelium MC

That was recorded live at Jim’s Basement which is a pretty cool venue. Great song by the MC who is playing a show at 11 tonight at Radio Bean. Portrait paint a fascinating view of our state. Great song from Phil’s upcoming album. I can’t wait for that one either. Great songs from North and Zola. This gentleman will be at the Bean tonight at 11 too.

22.) You’re Not Listening – Forest Gray
23.) Hang Em High School – Barbacoa
24.) Supernatural – Ryan Ober and the Romans
25.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
26.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No

I figure that if I keep playing that song, someone will have to eventually get Mountain that sled. Great rockers from Ryan and Crazy. Something about the Ryan song make me think it would sound great with the Crazy one. I caught Barbacoa the night after Thanksgiving with my cousins Michael Pearson and Caleb Pearson at Foam Brewers and they were amazing as always. Great questions from Forest. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
