Music to Your Ears


Take your vitamins and go out. Quite a few of the bands you'll see padding out local lineups in the coming weeks are on their way to or from SXSW in Austin, and that means a concentrated froth of bigger, better, weirder touring acts than what usually rambles through town. You can't afford to stay home.

Show Up!

Mac-Tire of Skye

Not just pipe dreams

OK, so it’s time again for high winds, evil leprechauns, disgusting green beer and arming yourself with a stout shillelagh. Lighten up dude, it’s also time for the good things ... remember parades and bagpipes?

Music Interview

No Age

Choosing bridges over bars

There are two sides to noise-punk duo No Age.

The Ramones-obsessed, headfirst slide into power-pop punk bumps up against its yang: layer upon layer of cacophonous sound that’s impossible to pick apart.

Though the result is messy, guitarist Randy Randall says everything is carefully designed. “Even the sense of chaos is planned in there,” Randall says. “Ninety-nine percent of it is all written out. If you were to see us every single night on the road, you might eventually become bored, because it’s the same sound every day.”

Sonic Reducer

Cherry Tempo The Hunter & The Fog · David Binney Third Occasion · O+S O+S

The Santa Fe-Albuquerque area's Cherry Tempo released its latest record Radiohead-style. You can download it free from the band's website and fork over as much or as little cash for it as you'd like. Muddy-toned melodies stay the course until they switch gears like an indy car, ramping up or slowing down as they please. It doesn't carry the velocity of punk, but it bares its muscle; the scream-sung lyrics are both tuneful and raw. Cherry Tempo's grungy indie rock carries a hint of what used to be called emo, before that term became corrupted. (SM)
