Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

Yule Struttin'

It wouldn't be the holidays in Albuquerque without the New Mexico Jazz Workshop's Yule Struttin' party. Way back since 1992, the state's nonprofit jazz steward has decked the halls with shiny baubles, fine art, food, wine, women and song to put some sparkle in the holidays and a little coin in the organization's cash box. No "Gift of the Magi" corollary here--Yule Struttin' is a win-win for jazz in New Mexico.

Girl Talk Feed the Animals · Kanye West 808s & Heartbreak · Various Artists This Warm December: A Brushfire Holiday Vol. 1

Sometimes you'd just rather be stressed out. That's what the well-intentioned folks at Brushfire Records don't seem to understand.

If you like guitar-heavy Christmas covers, then by all means snag this thing. But in a time of near economic collapse, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and holiday shopping madness, you have to wonder: What are these musicians so goddamned relaxed about? The record is probably meant as an escape from the worries of the world, but it comes off as annoying, insensate and painfully inappropriate. (SM)

Looney for Rooney

Rooney • indie • Run River North • folk rock

By Adam Wood
There is a striking absence of good rock music on the airwaves today. We have passed the glory days when kids and adults alike bonded over a couple of guitars and a drumset, as new heads try their hand at the more accessible sounds of electronic music and rap. There are those of us, however, who have not forgotten the thrill of playing air guitar and belting along to your favorite song. In his efforts to reaccess this primal energy, Robert Schwartzman—the mastermind behind the once-upon-a-time inescapable worm of a tune “Where Did Your Heart Go Missing”—has reformed his band Rooney
