Music to Your Ears

It's hard to describe what Potty Mouth Sherry's are outside the obvious "all-girl" (there are four of them, to be precise), but I'll try with some stream of consciousness—Punk. Folk. Pirate. Circus. Noise. Art-house. Playground. Butch. Femme. Bad-good. Good-bad. Sinbad. Ukulele-core.

Florida natives Against Me! crash at the Sunshine Theater this Thursday, Sept. 13. Touring for their fourth full-length album, New Wave, these guys are rocking the boat with punk that's rich, raw and honest.

Joey Calderazzo Amanecer · PlayRadioPlay! The Frequency E.P. · Chaka Khan Funk This
Bypassing the omphaloskepsis that plagued his 2004 solo recording, Haiku, the longtime Branford Marsalis Quartet pianist ventures over a wide range of sonorities and historical styles on Amanecer, in solo, duo and trio formats.

His highly personal rendition of “Waltz for Debby” lays a lovely veil over Bill Evans’ tune. Four tracks add Claudia Acuña (vocal) and Romero Lubambo (guitar), with particular success on the Calderazzo/Acuña composition “So Many Moons.” [MM]
Mishka Shubaly vs. the road
By Amy Dalness
The road is a dangerous mistress. One moment she's gilding her path, offering kisses laden with joy and good fortune. The next, she's slashed your tires, stolen the radio and called all your exs to tell them you've got the clap.

By Cerridwen Stucky
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.
