Music to Your Ears

Reggae Under the Stars ... with Nachos—Local reggae collective One Foundation/Mystic Vision is taking their message-heavy music to an unlikely venue this weekend: El Pinto (10500 Fourth Street). It's the first I've heard of a traditional New Mexican restaurant hosting anything but mariachis, but why not? It's got that beautiful North Valley patio, which Mystic Vision says they'll happily take advantage of. The group will be filming the performance for a DVD they're putting together. Show starts around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 25. I'm not aware of any cover charge, but you should probably order something to make the owners happy.

SuperGiant CD Release Party

Headphone fanatics rejoice

“Listen to it with headphones,” advised guitarist Jeremy McCollum as he handed me a copy of his band’s new CD. “OK,” I said, smiling meekly, unsure quite what to make of what he had just told me.

The Slow Poisoner


And Then There Was One

He's the last man standing—and that's fine by him

It used to be a plural affair, The Slow Poisoners. Over the course of 10 years, the other four members "expired." That's how Andrew Goldfarb, the remaining Poisoner, puts it. "Eventually, it was down to a duo," he says. "When I saw an opportunity to off the other member, I took it."

Sonic Reducer

People Under the Stairs Stepfather · Elan Together as One · John Ralston Needle Bed

The long-awaited full-length release from this Los Angeles hip-hop duo is arguably the tandem’s most meticulous and spirited disc to date. The benign subject matter that makes up PUTS’ flows (songs about food and hitting on girls at barbecues are the norm) are matched by the similarly low-key, self-produced beats. It won’t get the party started, but it will give you a nice soundtrack to wind down to after the keg is cashed.

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Oct 9)

Can I Get a Hallelujah?

Hozier • blues, indie, soul

You probably remember that in January a song filled the radio that made you say amen more than you had since going to church with your family as a child. Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” was in the top 100 singles in the U.S. for three weeks. His soft acoustic style paired with sorrowful crooning seemed to be just what the United States wanted…
