Music to Your Ears

Rahim's a Grammy Hopeful

Iraquerque oudist and composer Rahim Alhaj is up for a Grammy! Alhaj's nomination was announced toward the end of 2007, but you'll have to tune in to the 50th Grammy Awards (which aren't being picketed by the Writers Guild) to find out if our homeboy wins. It's airing on CBS (or "Channel 13" to you and me) this Sunday, Feb. 10. The album of the hour is When The Soul Is Settled: Music Of Iraq, 73 minutes of music Alhaj recorded with tabla master Souhail Kaspar (the tabla is a hand drum that's sort of shaped like an hourglass—you've seen them before). Look for it on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings label. Good luck, Rahim!

Sonic Reducer

The Mars Volta The Bedlam in Goliath · Jack Johnson Sleep Through the Static

Aside from stories of an ancient Ouija board, missing fragments of the album and a spiritual medium playing catalyst, Mars Volta guitarist and ringleader Omar Rodríguez-López wasn’t joking around when he got to work on The Bedlam in Goliath. It hits heavy from beginning to end. That's not always a good thing—like other TMV albums, there's an arrangement of confusion that can be difficult, if not daunting, to grasp the first time through. Since the second time around, I haven't been able to pry my ears away from the stereo. (JH)

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Oct 9)

Can I Get a Hallelujah?

Hozier • blues, indie, soul

You probably remember that in January a song filled the radio that made you say amen more than you had since going to church with your family as a child. Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” was in the top 100 singles in the U.S. for three weeks. His soft acoustic style paired with sorrowful crooning seemed to be just what the United States wanted…
