Pepper’s repin’

Music Interview

Pepper

Proof that you can take the band out of Hawaii, but you can’t take Hawaii out of the band

No stressing here. Even after relocating to California, recording six albums and touring extensively, the three busy men of reggae-infused rock act Pepper manage to keep their watches on laid-back Hawaiian time—their native Kona, to be exact. The Alibi relaxed with Pepper drummer Yesod Williams and got a bead on Pepper’s record label, a dream tour with NOFX and what the Aloha State and The Land of Enchantment have in common.

Jim Coker, local software developer behind Numerology

On the Scene

Fun with Sequencers

Local programmer writes a music program that fills a void

When Jim Coker started performing live electronic shows 12 years ago, he found himself frustrated by the available software. "And I had this other problem, which is that I'm a software developer," he says, half-joking. "Then I had some free time." He got to work on a more ideal music program, and after about a year, he had something worth putting out. It's been five years since Coker, an Albuquerque resident, began. The program's still a work in progress, but he says he's created a product that provides a decent middle ground in the world of electronic music software.

Sonic Reducer

Portugal. The Man Censored Colors · TV on the Radio Dear Science · Joel Harrison The Wheel

It’s important to remember that not all Alaskans are Sarah Palin. Some, like the members of Portugal. The Man, are more interested in crafting lush, Technicolor melodies than a bridge to nowhere. Teleporting from sharp-edged prog-rock to folksy sing-alongs and peculiar, electro examinations, Censored Colors is unfiltered; it splatters on the canvas and drips to the ground. Lead singer John Gourley is trailed by a cluster of falsetto backup vocals that answers his every call. At its kitschiest, the album borders on faux-rock opera, but somehow it works. There’s an unchained spirit inside Portugal. The Man that runs on adrenaline and only comes out at night. (SM)

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Apr 28)

Make Your Own Rock 'n' Roll

Nizhoni Girls • The Flossies • indie, rock • Midnight Stew • Nite Kidz • Lilith • shoegaze • Litter Brain

The poster for the concert happening at Moonlight Lounge on Friday, April 28, depicts a lonesome hogan placed in the midst of a black and white desolation. Flying out from a chimney on the traditional Diné dwelling is a plume of colorful smoke that names some of the bands that make that large sacred expanse to Burque’s west much more than a monochromatic desert. The smoky color of music pervades that realm, and now it’s drifting our way. With music by rez rebels Nizhóní Girls, The Flossies, Midnight Stew, Nite Kidz, Lilith and Burque’s own DIY punk powerhouse Litter Brain, this is going to be a concert guaranteed to give listeners a solid and soulfully sonic indication of how powerful the voices—and electric guitars and synths and drums—from our Native American neighbors and fellow punk rockers can be. The bands will be performing during this year’s Gathering of Nations Pow Wow to raise funds for the upcoming Asdzaa Warrior Fest. Join in on this rocking revelation for only $5 and a valid 21+ ID. Doors are at 8pm; the righteous ritual begins at 9pm.
