Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

Who Says There's Nothing to Do in Rio Rancho?—Well, pretty much everyone. Especially the people who actually live there. Of course, there's Slate Street Billiards and Sports Bar and the shiny new sportsplex, which both make Rio Rancho a happening place for ... sports spectatorship. But as far as live music goes, you're on your own.

Over her decade-long career in music, 28-year-old singer/songwriter Erin McKeown has earned distinction for her wryly upbeat lyrics and a vocal style that isn’t as much about virtuosity as it is honesty.

Sonic Reducer

Planes Mistaken For Stars Mercy · Blind Guardian A Twist In The Myth · Cellador Enter Deception

Mercy showcases a band that has matured into their definite sound, but it’s a sound that is undeniably a conglomerate of hundred influences and emotions slithering into one amorphous shape.

Honestly, there isn’t a bad track on this record and I curse myself for not giving them a whirl sooner.
