DJ Tahnee spins an all-vinyl Roulette
Old-school DJ and noise musician Tahnee Udero played Song Roulette with us this week. She has a serious holiday music fetish—specifically Halloween and Christmas—that makes me dig her shows even more. Hear Udero spin Christmas music with DJ Mello on KUNM’s Afternoon Freeform on Monday, Dec. 24, from 1:30-4 p.m. Listen online at kunm.org or tune your dial to 89.9 FM. Night owls can also tune in to Udero’s Christmas edition of Music to Soothe the Savage Beast on Tuesday, Dec. 25, from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Check out sound and video from her random tracks below.

The present's so bright, you ought to wear (shutter) shades
If y'all read my intro column, Dancing About Pueblo Revival Style Architecture, you already know I dig making podcasts of Nuevo Mexicano music for my blog, Things in Light. There's some terrific work being created by local musicians and I'm psyched to share it with Alibi readers. The new TiL podcast, Shutter Mix, includes tracks from the 2011 solo women's Gatas y Vatas fest compilation and tunes by Shiprock post-punk duo Discotays and Fort Wingate-based composer Ryan Dennison, among others. Stream it below or see the original blog post for a full track list.
TEN, Local Spin and American Deacon
There’s always so much amazing live music happening in Burque and Santa Fe. It’s impossible to cover it all, but I will do my utmost to keep y’all apprised of the best shows happening each week. In this week’s Music to Your Ears, I honed in on three shows that sound particularly boss. Eric McFadden’s new trio, TEN, debuts at Sister on Friday. On Saturday, the Local Spin listening party at Blackbird Buvette features lots of Gatas y Vatas fest tracks and performances by Lauren Anderson, Pancakes! and The Vomettes (The 5 Star Motelles). If you feel like a road trip to the City Different, consider going on Tuesday, because Dan Deacon performs at Molly’s Kitchen and Lounge.
