Now Hear This, Vol. V
You are about to enter another dimension. A dimension of A/V. This is the middle ground between mediocre and too-good-to-be-true, between something called "reggae" and the sound angels emit. You are traveling deep into the realm of rad tuneage. Next stop, Now Hear This!
High desert magick
When it comes to local wizard-themed bands, too much is never enough. Swervegaze wizard REIGHNBEAU has been casting beatific spells—and stealing my vantablack heart—since prime mover Bryce Hample began transmitting incantations into the æther. During the Alibi's latest totally-not-weekly podcast, guests Marya Errin Jones (ABQ Zine Fest founder, The Tannex co-founder) and Mike Smith (author, zinester and Alibi contributing writer) had high praise for REIGHNBEAU's "Milk of Amnesia" video premiere at Guild Cinema. If you missed that rad event, fear not. Screen the viddy below. Commune with REIGHNBEAU, BK Beats, The 1960 Sci-Fi Era and Nathan New in the so-called flesh at a Nothng Forevr showcase at Burt's Tiki Lounge (313 Gold SW) on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 9pm. It's a 21-plus recital, and there's no cover.
The eldritch band next door
During the same podcast, Mike Smith hipped us to the debut music video for up-and-coming alchemical heavies Melanthius. It's a family band featuring siblings Mauro Woody, Brahm Woody and Dhaveed Woody and kindred spirit Eric Wellman. "The Door" video captures the mage collective with shimmery, psychedelic cinematography as they walk the earth, work a fluorescent cauldron and seek nuevomexicano treasure. Scope the vid below, and catch Melanthius' debut gig on Tuesday, Aug. 26, at Burt's (313 Gold SW) starting at 9pm. The 21-plus show is free and also features Shoulder Voices and Billy Crooze and the Dinglehoppers.
If you go down to Hammond
Steve Hammond's various projects have garnered a lot of ink in the Alibi over the years. His most well-known bands are twang-and-thrash trio Leeches of Lore and umlautcore outfit Tenderizor, but Hammond is a prolific solo artist and has also performed as Retard Slave and in Death Convention Singers, Knife City, Filthy Jim and Black Ale Sinners. His microlabel, Flying Midget Records, hosts releases from these projects. One of my favorite Flying Midget offerings is Hammond's Cover of the Month Series. Available as a name-your-price download, the compilation features covers of tunes by Miles Davis, Billy Idol, Buck Owens vs. The Fresh Prince, Wire, Melvins, Irving Berlin, Hank Williams, Funkadelic, Neil Young, The Kinks, They Might Be Giants and Beach Boys. Stream or download it below.

Soundtracking a route of wolves
As I decided what podcast to share with y’all today, I’m surrounded by glorious canines. Not wolves, mind you. But one of the coolest things about working at the Alibi is the dog-friendly office. That’s how I ended up selecting my Walking the Wolf mix for today’s blog. It’s an exciting story, I know. But I promise the podcast itself is far more thrilling than my description of the selection process. Stream the mix—featuring tracks by The Kill Spectors, Tenderizor, Venus Bogardus, The Grave of Nobody’s Darling, Great White Buffalo, Sabertooth Cavity, Bigawatt and The Kleptones—below or visit the original blog post for the full track list.

Songs in the key of Nuevo Mexicano
Most of the podcasts I create for my blog exclusively showcase New Mexican artists and recordings. Songs in the Key of Nuevo Mexicano strays from that formula, with only one 505-based musician, Joe West, and one former Santa Fean act, Beirut. But all eight tracks are themed on the land of enchantment. The performers range from minimal wave icons Oppenheimer Analysis and Jeff & Jane Hudson to cowboy king Roy Rogers to Austinite alt.country silver fox Dale Watson. Listen to the podcast below or visit the original blog post for the full track list.

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.
