  • Amelia Devoid
Hey there, dew drops. I've been scouting the internet for nice local tracks to set the tone for your spring flings. You know, the kinds of songs that make you want to share your earbuds while swinging on a waterfront bench at sunset.

Playtime: Waking Windows Pep Talk

Posted By on Fri, May 5, 2017 at 10:46 AM

  • Amelia Devoid
Hey, dudes. I have to admit that I possibly drank too much coffee before writing this post. I'm trying to sit here and write about my personal must-see bands appearing at Waking Windows in Winooski this weekend, but it's taking forever. Each time I listen to a band in the line-up, I literally get out of my chair and start dancing like the woodland montage in Hot Rod.

Playtime: Meet Burlington Triple Threat Courtney Pryce

  • Courtney Pryce

Hey, dudes! As I type this, the sun is shining and my vitamin D-deficient shell of a body feels like a starved vampire after drinking a quart of Type O. Are you ready for at least four months of  extra oxygen and seemingly endless parties? I sure am.

Playtime: Femme Techno Night at Speaking Volumes

Posted By on Fri, Apr 21, 2017 at 9:32 AM

Hey there, earthworms and early robins. Welcome back to my online music zone!

Earlier this week, Seven Days music editor Jordan Adams introduced you to local fringe music enthusiasts Caroline DeCunzo and Jack Braunstein. The two are high-functioning mitochondria in the cell of Burlington music and social action groups, Pushing A Brain Uphill and Babe Paradise. Adams' article gave you the head's up about PABU's experimental sound festival this weekend at Burlington City Arts and Speaking Volumes. I'm going to fill you in about Friday night's PABU event, Femme Techno Night, co-hosted by Babe Paradise.

Playtime: RIP Halflounge / 'Rocking Time,' Urian Hackney

Urian Hackney - SAWYER GREEN
  • Sawyer Green
  • Urian Hackney
Hello again, humans. I am a little teary-eyed this week over the closing of Church Street's Halflounge Speakeasy. The tiny bar was a hidden cove for local misfits for nearly a decade. Each summer weekend the place was packed from the blue-and-pink lit basement to the front patio. I'm stuck in my feelings for that little dance floor, so I'm going to unload some of my favorite memories of the place. If you aren't a nostalgic baby-blanket like myself, skip a couple paragraphs to read into the future of Vermont reggae, okay?

Playtime: Jay//Attik

Hello again, humans. You may have guessed that I have a love for "internet music." The concept of unsigned musicians experimenting with genre and generally not giving a heck about antiquated standards of production excites me. It's even more exciting to discover such forward-thinking musicians from Vermont randomly on the internet.

Playtime: Son of Salami, 'Bacon Street'

Posted By on Fri, Mar 3, 2017 at 11:15 AM

'Bacon Street,' Son of Salami
  • 'Bacon Street,' Son of Salami
Hello, my freaks and geeks. I've got a rare relic to share with you today! If you are familiar with Burlington's musical hypogeum, you're probably aware of the elusive artist known as Joey Pizza Slice. Sir Slice has been producing under the nom de plume Son of Salami for many years now. His underground classic, A Study In Eraser Headless Tape Recording, is a phenomenal work of lo-fi pop utilizing a unique technique of recording songs with a tape recorder that has had the eraser head removed. This method allows him to record infinite layers of sound on one cassette tape. But he is unable to hear or erase what he is recording over, a difficult undertaking even for the most talented individuals.

'Sup, cuties? This week I'm stoked to be alerting you to a couple of local developments at the intersection of techno-feminism and music. First, here's a little data on the inclusion of women in the music industry.
