An orchestra in a one-bedroom apartment

By Simon McCormack

Can something be intimate and enormous? Artificial and organic? Low-budget and extravagant? The Age of Rockets’ singer-songwriter Andrew Futral thinks so. But it takes time.

Sonic Reducer

Fleet Foxes Fleet Foxes · Melvins Nude With Boots · Gavin Rossdale Wanderlust

Fleet Foxes' debut evokes wide-open spaces and adventures in the wilderness. When you’re finished cutting through vines of choral singing and sloshing through rivers of reverberating guitars, you realize the reward is in the journey. Sometimes ’70s Southern rock is the backdrop, while on other occasions, the band goes with a luscious soundscape of multipart harmonies. While it’s never disorienting, the record is completely devoid of a standard verse-chorus-verse structure, instead wafting from part to part like a feather falling to the ground. Fleet Foxes moves at an unhurried pace, but for a band that digs on atmosphere, things move along relatively quickly. (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

By August March
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.
