Kate Mann

Music Interview

Kate Mann

You can take the singer-songwriter out of the desert ...

Even though she left Albuquerque for the rain-drenched Pacific Northwest more than a decade ago, elements from the state Kate Mann grew up in can still be found in her music and on her back. The gigantic Zia symbol tattooed between the desert-folk artist's shoulder blades isn't the only part of the Southwest that's made its mark on the budding singer-songwriter from Albuquerque. The sounds that flutter out of Mann's acoustic guitar work within the broader genre of Americana, but the landscapes painted in her lyrics bring to mind a highly New Mexicanized vision.

Sonic Reducer

Loren Stillman Blind Date · Thomas Function Celebration · Janet Jackson Discipline

What you notice right away is alto saxophonist Loren Stillman’s sound—silky, confidential, at times ethereal, with a latent keening that suggests a soprano sax—and his adept control of minute sonic variations to shape a line and communicate the subtlest emotional content. On top of that, he has ideas aplenty, as he explores eight original, sensitive and sturdy compositions. Although the rhythm section on Blind Date includes some of the best players on the scene today— Gary Versace (piano), Drew Gress (bass) and Joey Baron (drums)—the connection between them and Stillman seems tenuous at times. Still, the sound and writing beguile. (MM)

Andy Milne and Dapp Theory

Pianist/composer’s group balances the topical and the musical

Andy Milne is of two minds. On the one hand, he’s not particularly optimistic about the country’s prospects these days, given our dependency on foreign oil, the ballooning debt and other unpromising conditions. On the other hand, he feels that he has something of an obligation to comment on the situation and, at the same time, inject a dose of positive energy.

Franks and Deans
Courtesy of the Artist

EVENT HORIZON (Thursday, Feb 23)

Franks & Deans • punk rock, rock 'n' roll • Shrewd • Punctured Muffler • Silent Crush • metal

At some point during the progression of meta-ultra-postmodernism, it was only natural that a band covering Rat Pack Tunes revisioned as rambling ska paeans or blisteringly buoyant punk anthems based on the imbibing and love-making habits of dudes like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin would rise from the rocanrol cauldron. We'll it's 2017 and such has indeed come to pass. The name of the band is Franks and Deans. They've succeeded by inflecting the sweepingly romantic, sometimes melancholy and nearly always self-referential ditties of these post-war, pre-rock vocal heroes with with good-natured rhythms and danceable guitar leads—as well as an updated fashion sense that seems to borrow more from ZZ Top's summer style guide than from Robin and the Seven Hoods—that adds affable nuance to legendary, mid-century American popular music. Band members Rob DeTie, Pip Ullemeyer, Hoss and Arpee Sampson III await your indulgence at Low Spirits on Thursday, Feb. 23, and the admission price of $5 sure as heck beats dropping “Three Coins in the Fountain.”
