intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Over the Christmas holiday I’ve been thinking a lot about the peace on earth good will towards people idea. We’ve made many strides but are still a long way off. This first song is a nice image of where we could end up if we work hard to wage peace.

1.) Happy Xmas (War is Over) – Joshua Glass Music 2.) Presence – Satori Bob 3.) Happy New Year – Ninja Custodian 4.) Basalt Anchor – Vedora

Love the sultry feel to the voice and music in that song, and the guitar playing is beautiful too! Can’t wait to see them more in this coming year with Jane Boxall Percussion on drums. Happy New Year has a nice sentiment on the surface but is about a terrible chemical spill in Bhopal. If humankind works together maybe we can stop having tragedies like that. Presence is a song about lighting up your inner poet and stepping away from materialism. I hope you enjoyed the holiday season. Does anyone know if The Mountain Says No ever got their Christmas sled?

5.) Christmas Sled – The Mountain Says No 6.) Cowgirl In The Sand – The Seth Yacovone Band

Killer version of the Neil Young song performed live at Nectar’s as part of the WBKM birthday party last November. Mountain are playing Saturday at The Monkey House with Black Rabbit and Dino Bravo VT. OK, let’s go on to the next song on Many Things and Many Scenes.

7.) Shoreline In Jersey – Joe Adler 8.) Old Souls Of Chatham County – Jeremy Gilchrist 9.) The Globe – Landlady

I still vividly remember the Landlady show at Signal Kitchen earlier this year. Someone can bring them back anytime!! Great new song from Jeremy. He was one of the many performers who played at First Night Burlington this year. It was great to see Joe play some new songs last Tuesday at Radio Bean. One of the ways I learn about music is to read the column by Seven Days music writer Dan Bolles then show up and see if I like the band. He is doing a list of the top local music singles of 2014. Here are a few of his picks.

10.) Unveiled – Pours 11.) Give Me All Your Love – Madaila 12/) Until It All Ends – Waylon Speed

Yup, he was right. Those are all pretty cool songs. This next song is on the list too, and this band played a killer show Tuesday at Nectar’s.

13.) Popular Crowd – Swale 14.) Searching To Destroy – Kiki’s Lost Nation 15.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

The Wards are down to a three-piece but played a smoking show at Radio Bean last Sunday. Lost Nation opened but Aurora sang instead of Kiki. Either way, they opened with a killer version of Searching. Here’s some music I got this morning. It’s Luke Awtry from Vetica‘s new band.

16.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains 17.) Things Change – Black Rabbit 18.) A Different Machine (live) – Elephants of Scotland

Elephants have released the show they played in Gettysburg at Rosfest, a progressive rock festival. They are also playing Montreal in April at one of the Marillionweekend side events. I am so there! Can’t wait to see Rabbit in a couple of days. This next guy has been waging peace since his days as Mayor of Burlington. He made this album back in 1987 and is still standing up for the same things.

19.) We Shall Overcome – Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont Artists 20.) Buttonz – Binger

Binger seem to be working towards the peace on earth idea and I thought their words would stand favorably with Bernie’s. I think they are playing Red Square tomorrow. OK, I’m almost out of time so let’s head back to Gettysburg for one more song.

21.) Endless (Pt 2) – Elephants Of Scotland.

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