Re: “Four More Local Albums You (Probably) Haven't Heard

Maybe my access is blocked because of my browser, but I couldn't connect to the Queen Louisa track.

Wow, "Pretty Lousy" is actually pretty great! He's got a nice mixture of uptempo and downtempo songs, too. I quite enjoyed it.

The UnKommon album, to be honest, isn't the style to which I typically listen, but those rappers clearly have a lot of style and skill. I hear a couple of different approaches to rapping switching things up.

Re: “Binger, Skeptics

Skeptics is an album that shows the maturity of a musical band in the same mode as the Police. Shakir's bass is reminiscent of Sting's, except with more musical range. Brady's guitar is electric and Muzzy's drumming is cool and does not overshadow Shak's bass or Brady's guitar.
Abstraction is what it implies and showcases the group's musical range and dexterity while the quick fire rapping from Shak fits it well. Strings, Look at the Lilacs and If I Knew are the other stand out songs. Guest vocalist Steph challenges both Shak and Brady to up their lyrical game. Overall Skeptics is a better album than it seems at first and will grow on you. It is musically and lyrically complex and not the run of the mill noisy, throw away albums that you will soon forget. Binger should be complimented for their courage for staying true to their music.

Re: “Bernie Songs From VT and Beyond

This website is really well keep going like this having different songs on this page keeps us fresh and very cool.
Music is a really good thing for human being. Music is something that every person has his or her own specific opinion about. Different people have different taste, and various types of music have many ways of leaving an impact on someone. It can be relaxing, angering, soothing, energizing, and many more. There are so many types of music out there today. songs Rap, pop, rock, country, indie, alternative, hardcore are some of the abundant types in the world.Music sends out either good or bad messages that have big impacts on how people act. People usually become friends with others who have a same taste in music as the rest of the people they hangout with, or it can be vice versa. People may not want to
associate with people who have different tastes in music because they’ll argue about what they think is better but its just their own opinions.I can personally relate to the effects that music has on its listeners and users because it’s a big part of my life. Every day I listen to the words and sounds of different singers/bands with contrasting ideas and opinions. The music I listen makes me who I am?

Re: “A Paean to the Pants

Great piece! Dave from The Zambonis here. We played many shows at Toast w the amazing Pants. Slept on Tom's floor after gigs. Their music has always been with me. Side note: played a gig tonight in Brooklyn and used my fave crappy amp, my friend asked, is that the amp that was used on The Pants song 2000? Yup. Eat Crow was recorded here in CT with Zamboni / Philistine jr super producer/friend/UVM grad Peter Katis. PANTS FOREVER!

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

"As usual, there's probably a bunch of bands playing at a bunch of bars in celebration of getting grotesquely drunk and in cartoonish appropriation of cultural traditions. What fun!

Look, I'm not going to write about that shit."

Haha!! Amazing! I feel the same way...That exact scene was happening at Gusto's after the show. I now know why people refer to it as "Dis-Gusto's".

I now see: as pointed out by an amigo: that the above statement was quoting Chris Rock, and not the authors statement. My apologies to Dan Bolles! peace.

Re: “Kyle Kinane on Comedy, Bernie and Mountain Biking

Bicycles should not be allowed in any natural area. They are inanimate objects and have no rights. There is also no right to mountain bike. That was settled in federal court in 1996: http://mjvande.info/mtb10.htm . It's dishonest of mountain bikers to say that they don't have access to trails closed to bikes. They have EXACTLY the same access as everyone else -- ON FOOT! Why isn't that good enough for mountain bikers? They are all capable of walking....

A favorite myth of mountain bikers is that mountain biking is no more harmful to wildlife, people, and the environment than hiking, and that science supports that view. Of course, it's not true. To settle the matter once and for all, I read all of the research they cited, and wrote a review of the research on mountain biking impacts (see http://mjvande.info/scb7.htm ). I found that of the seven studies they cited, (1) all were written by mountain bikers, and (2) in every case, the authors misinterpreted their own data, in order to come to the conclusion that they favored. They also studiously avoided mentioning another scientific study (Wisdom et al) which did not favor mountain biking, and came to the opposite conclusions.

Mountain biking accelerates erosion, creates V-shaped ruts, kills small animals and plants on and next to the trail, drives wildlife and other trail users out of the area, and, worst of all, teaches kids that the rough treatment of nature is okay (it's NOT!). What's good about THAT?

To see exactly what harm mountain biking does to the land, watch this 5-minute video: http://vimeo.com/48784297.

In addition to all of this, it is extremely dangerous: http://mjvande.info/mtb_dangerous.htm .

Re: “Soundbites: Scarface in … Barre?

Scarface was not 'the first guy to do his rhymes in the first person about robbing people and drug dealing.'
Take a look at Ice-T's "6 'N the Morning" or "9mm" by BDP KRS-One & Scott LaRock. These were in '86 & '87 respectively.

Re: “Sail Away: Overlooked at Home, Vermont's Mellow Yellow are Big at Sea

First time Moodies cruisers here, but Mellow Yellow was a highlight for us on that one and the Lebrewski.
Only slightly bummed out that Dusty Love is NOT a real name.😉

Re: “Sail Away: Overlooked at Home, Vermont's Mellow Yellow are Big at Sea

Love this article!!! I'm a three time Moody Blues Cruiser and Mellow Yellow is the House Band for us! Each and everyone is an incredible musician, and I never cease to be amazed at their versatility! We are so lucky to have them and I know I speak for all the Cruisers who can hardly wait until the next time!

Re: “Rocking the Boat: A Caribbean Cruise with Vermont's Mellow Yellow

You should have been on the Moody Blues Cruise instead. Much more relaxed (and older) crowd, plus Mellow Yellow played 4 times.

Re: “Soundbites: On Bernie Jam, Caroline Rose & Invisble Homes and the Pants Doc

"Picture the Clancy Brothers at a Sanders rally, and you're in the ballpark." Dan, I couldn't ask for a bigger compliment, I'm a Yuuuge Clancy and Makem fan (I went to Armagh with Tommy Makem & Sons in 2000). I named the song after the chorus, but have been promoting #IrishBernieSong. Cheers!

Re: “Soundbites: On Bernie Jam, Caroline Rose & Invisble Homes and the Pants Doc

Well David Rosane and The Zookeepers do have a Bernie Song and it ain't called Feel the bern it's called civilisation and since i have the wit of stairs i only just wrote it and it wont even git recorded probably until after he's elected president but in the interim we WILL play it at Bernie Jam. Its about Bernie' (and our)'s place and role in space and time in the overall historical arc of human emancipation and flourishing of democracy. And it goes like this.....
seeyou saturday in West Newbury!
