Music to Your Ears

Friends With Benefits

By Captain America
From Albuquerque to Las Cruces, Kenta Henmi has been slinging a guitar around these parts for well over 15 years. In the past 12 months, though, he’s been plagued with a series of health issues that have kept him in and out hospital beds, and now the local music community is coming together to lend him a hand.

Horse Opera croons classic country

By Summer Olsson

Austin’s Horse Opera is an honest-to-goodness country band. The quartet’s debut album, Sounds of the Desert, is a two-steppin' joy chock-full of pedal steel and heartbreak. It’s fun. It’s lonely. It makes you want to jump in your car (or pickup truck, preferably) and drive a dusty road to Texas because, surely, that’s where the heartfelt music and dancing are happening. A look at Horse Opera’s photos shows earnest men in boots, cowboy hats and Western shirts. But wait a secthese cowboys are really punk rockers.
