Like Sand Through an Ant Farm ...

The Albuquerque music scene is a nostalgic place. Inevitably its participants will all find themselves with broken hearts, yearning for a defunct band. On a local level, it's not just about the music—it's a phase in your life, the people you shared it with and the places where you spent it.

The culture of cassette tapes

Remember when music on vinyl was pronounced dead? That was soon proved wrong when even “hit” groups like Pearl Jam released LPs. If you paid any attention to underground and indie bands, you knew that vinyl never went away. It was just quietly in the background like stealth spyware on your computer, waiting ...

’Cause Mall Schwag Is for Squares ...

Berlin Voices About Christmas · Dirt City Radio This Machine · Frank Hoier "Self Release"

Chestnuts, edible and audible, are a Christmas tradition, and this recording from Berlin Voices (Esther Kaiser, Sarah Kaiser, Marc Secara, Kristofer Benn) offers chestnuts aplenty. But these German and English carols, dating from the 15th century to 2008, have been specially roasted over stunning new arrangements that extract unexpected wonders from familiar songs while avoiding holiday schmaltz. Several arrangers contribute a variety of styles, from samba to bluesy jazz waltz to straight-ahead swing with big-band harmonies. Whether singing a cappella or backed by a swinging combo and special guests, the four distinctive voices light up this Christmas-themed jazz recording. (MM)

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

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 on only $5 and a valid 21+ ID. Doors are at 8pm; the righteous ritual begins at 9pm.
