Music Magnified

Liquid Cheese CD Release Party

with Danny Winn and The Earthlings, Fighting Chance, Made in Bangladesh and Half Stache

By

Launchpad on Thursday, Jan. 26, $8 (all-ages): Fight the urge to judge this band by their name; Liquid Cheese does not sound like "liquid cheese." There is no oozing squishiness when they're on stage. They are solid, precise, energizing and satisfying (if “liquid cheese” could be described as satisfying, then there may be a correlation, after all). They really should make it more apparent why they chose their band name—for now I'll write it off as some insanely funny inside joke and be content that they, at least, understand.

Get All Jazzed Up with the New Mexico Jazz Workshop

By

“You are the perfect candidate.”

These are the words one loves to hear when applying for a loan, buying a new car and asking what experience is needed to participate in one of New Mexico Jazz Workshop's adult education classes.

If you have have played a jazz instrument, strummed a guitar or belted your little heart out, then Maud Beenhouwer, education coordinator for the New Mexico Jazz Workshop, says you are the perfect candidate for the classes they are offering this spring semester. This is really good news if your saxophone has been sitting in the back of the closet, gathering dust, waiting for you to get back in the groove.

Brooklyn Band Says They're Not a Cult

By

There's a lot of Akron/Family lore floating around out there about how the group wears Rip Van Winkle beards, is involved in a religious cult of their own concoction and holds some type of super-human musical capabilities/strength. The truth, disappointingly, is that the beards are scaled back, there is no cult and they are not super-human (at least, in the Dungeons and Dragons sense).

Sonic Reducer

Frankel Chatterbox · Towers of London How Rude She Was · Paul Salazar At the Helm

By

From looking at pictures of Frankel (including the one on Chatterbox's cover) one could reasonably deduce that he is an absolute piece of shit. That said, the album's intimate vocals and gushing melodies will have Elliot Smith and Nick Drake fans convinced they've found their new indie messiah. The biggest knock against the guitar- and vocals-based EP is its brief, 23-minute length. Proof that you can't judge an album by the douche on its cover.

But I Like It

Prism Bitch • punk • Shitty and the Terribles • garage • Gerunding

By August March
Let's be clear: the premier psych-y, slithery rocanrol event of February takes place at (where else) the Launchpad on Friday, Feb. 23. That's when local, sultry sound stars and de facto leaders of the soulful garage rock unit of this city's scene, Prism Bitch take the stage to blind 21+ locals with sonic and spectral divination from the mouths of prison-bound purveyors followed by no-wave Shitty and the Terribles complete with Nueva York style aggression and power chords. Whatever, it's $7 and they totally rock. And psych-pop pronunciators Gerunding (everything they sing ends in -ing, one hopes) open up this super psychedelic can of worms that are actually magic mushrooms that are actually … oh my gawd, you better go and see for yourself at 9pm.
