Aural Fixation

An Artifact Unearthed

Albuquerque’s L.M. Dupli-cation reissues John Jacob Niles’ iconic home recordings

The voice—reedy, urgent, ethereal and strong—summons centuries of memory and suspends time in the space of a song. Love, jealousy, longing, fear and remorse take on an almost physical presence, and fabled characters first conjured in song ages ago, in hovels choked with peat smoke, crowd the imagination.

Language Fails Us

A talk with Deerhoof’s John Dieterich

Deep into a second decade of making music, Deerhoof continues to introduce avant anachronisms to the world of pop music. Ostensibly based in the Bay Area, Deerhoof’s music evokes specific San Francisco sound memories: crashing waves under the Golden Gate; the high-pitched squeal and hiss of the N Judah train; a mission junkie’s shuffle. Straying from the geographic origin that lends an aural palette to its songs, the band is spread throughout the country with drummer Greg Saunier living in New York, singer/bassist Satomi Matsuzaki “floating,” guitarist Ed Rodriguez in Portland and guitarist John Dieterich in Albuquerque.

Acoustic Time Wizards

They don’t have fireworks, a giant inflatable penis or any of the other spectacular bullshit of a major-label tour. Albuquerque’s A Hawk & A Hacksaw, Minneapolis’ Dark Dark Dark, and Chicago’s Pillars and Tongues don’t even have a name for their tour. They do have an unusual collection of instruments, two vans and the ability to reshape time, although they accomplish that in different ways. The three groups will be altering perceptions at the South Broadway Cultural Center tonight in an all-ages concert produced by AH&AH accordionist Jeremy Barnes. Find out more here.

Have Bands, Don’t Travel

You could make the 13-hour drive to Austin for SXSW, struggle through pressing crowds, spend tons of money and only dream of reaching the bar in any given venue. Or you could drive a measly 45 minutes to Santa Fe and see many of the same bands as they make their pilgrimage to Texas.

Reel to Real

The culture of cassette tapes

Remember when music on vinyl was pronounced dead? That was soon proved wrong when even “hit” groups like Pearl Jam released LPs. If you paid any attention to underground and indie bands, you knew that vinyl never went away. It was just quietly in the background like stealth spyware on your computer, waiting ...

Cooper-Moore

Freedom of Expression

Cooper-Moore vigorously exercises his right to free expression, whether he's storytelling, pushing the jazz envelope at the piano, or expanding the realm of the folkloric by inventing, building and playing his own musical instruments. He and Albuquerque's own Jeremy Barnes—one-half of A Hawk & A Hacksaw—first met a few years ago in Chicago, and ever since, they've been plotting to explore their musical universes together. They'll do it tonight at 7:30 p.m. at UNM's ARTS Lab with Cooper-Moore on piano and his own original instruments and Barnes on drums and other instruments—"It's going to be accordion-free," Barnes says. The show reprises outside of Albuquerque on Saturday at the Santa Fe Complex (8 p.m.) and Sunday at the El Rito Library (3 p.m.). Donations will be accepted for the Albuquerque show. Call 730-3814.
