Music to Your Ears

We Will, We Will Mock U

Seeing how the topic is fake bands, and Keller Williams and the WMDs are coming through town this week, it's pretty serendipitous that Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo just happens to be debuting in Albuquerque on Tuesday. Primus bass-master Les Claypool wrote, directed and stars in this mock rockumentary chronicling the highs (cough) and lows of a jam band reaching for cult status in the jam circuit.

Fake It ’Til You Make It

If these guys became rockstars, you sure as hell can

There are a multitude of phony-baloney "bands" that have made the jump from fiction to radio. Bands that blurred the line between fantasy and reality so effectively that even Stephen Hawking’s sexy Speak and Spell voice can’t explain the phenomenon.

Monterey Jazz Festival 50th Anniversary All-Stars Live at the 2007 Monterey Jazz Festival · Magnetic Fields Distortion · The Helio Sequence Keep Your Eyes Ahead

Pulled together to celebrate the last 50 and the next 50 years of jazz at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the MJF All-Stars— James Moody (sax, flute), Terence Blanchard (trumpet), Nnenna Freelon (vocals), Benny Green (piano, musical director), Derrick Hodge (bass), and Kendrick Scott (drums)—bring their A games, covering mainstream ground from bebop to post-bop. High points include the charming Moody/Freelon duet on Ellington’s “Just Squeeze Me,” Moody’s swing on Milt Jackson’s “Monterey Mist” and Blanchard’s blistering solo on Lionel Loueke’s “Benny’s Tune” (the most modern composition). The set is relaxed, playful and occasionally intense, with everyone letting down their hair. (MM)

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Dec 4)

I Tawt I Heard a Puddytat

Tacocat • post post punk pop • Red Light Cameras

Everything about Tacocat is candy-coated. Technicolor-dyed hair, surfy guitar vibes and unabashed riot grrl revivalism combine in this energetic quartet from Seattle to make some of the best pop-punk tunes you’ve heard since you became okay with listening to pop-punk again. It’s good music for gleefully burning pictures of your ex. With punchy but sweet vocals and catchy choruses that you’ll be humming for days, their latest album NVM is worthy of heavy rotation. Their second LP (and first on the Hardly Art label), NVM features beefed-up production but the same garage-y, DIY sound from their earlier EPs, Woman’s Day and Take Me to Your Dealer. Stand-out tracks are “Crimson Wave” (which is about exactly what you think it’s about) and “Psychedelic Quinceñera,” a ballad about a girl who would rather forego the regular quinceñera formalities on her 15th birthday and get hella blitzed with her amigas instead. After exhausting the basement venues of Washington, Tacocat is heading inland on their winter tour with Sallie Ford. Red Light Cameras open. Pay your 10 bucks and get ready for the most colorful 21+ mosh pit of your life!
