I just got back from a trip to Burlington, Vermont where I lived for three years in the late 90s. I’m still amazed at how rich the local music scene is, especially if you look at the relative size of the Green Mountain state’s largest city. Vetica, a young band that can brag about live shows in Brooklyn and Tokyo, recently self-released the album Signal Path, the track “Can’t Feel It” is my pick.
Sean Hood at Vermont’s independent weekly Seven Days notes that they have “a formula for something that no other band in town is doing: writing and recording their very own mid-’90s, post-rock hits.” I still remember the punch line ‘I live in Vermont and I do what I want’, not to mention the trailblazing legislation for the Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI): the first state in the United States to implement it and move post-GDP.
Hi, I picked up your conmmet on the “Moving to Canada, eh” blog. I can’t speak for the other Canadians who are helping out, but my main purpose is to provide any Americans with a good picture of life in Canada – warts and all. I have lived in most parts of this country, as I served in our military for over 20 years, and moved a lot. I believe that it is a positive thing for Canada to be open to progessive-minded people. Our economy is not as strong as yours, and people are the key to our cultural and economic development.The Cdn bloggers on our site live from the east to the west coasts, and we are all more than willing to help you however we can – it’s the Canadian thing to do ;-)
