Music to Your Ears

Free Ozzy—The Prince of F***ing Darkness is cashing in on another run of Ozzfest, which includes a July 26 stop at Journal Pavilion. Fourteen uneven years after its debut, hope that this festival could retain more integrity than a fatted cash cow seems soundly, painfully extinguished—not least of all by the festival's pandering to "murderous clown" acts like Slipknot. But fans of the Bewildered Evil One have some redeeming incentives to come out this time. (I mean, besides the spectacle of Ozzy's stage handlers dousing his crotch with water at regular intervals ... No sir, no cover for incontinence there!)

Sea Wolf Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low · Panthers The Trick · Hot IQs Dangling Modifier

The past few years have seen a semi-deluge of wolf-in-name musical ensembles: Wolf Eyes, Wolfmother and now Sea Wolf (this on top of a metal band named Wolf, not to mention Los Lobos). On the debut EP from solitary permanent band member Alex Brown Church, Sea Wolf may be the most promising member of the wolfly titled club. The arrangement is an evocation of moody melody propelled by violins, cellos, lyrical storytelling, astute percussion and a concertina or two. The five songs are mostly lovely and fully worthy of borrowing name and inspiration from Sea Wolf, Jack London's 1904 novel.

El-Producto

Wax Tracks

Producto Produces

Finally. It's here. A new disc. And it's the best.

It's been five years since the last El-Producto album proper dropped. 2002's Fantastic Damage ate up the charts, gorging on fawning reviews of its "post-apocalyptic" hip-hop.

Animal Collective

Spotlight

Animal Collective

Sans chin-stroking

At first it was simple pop-rock songs. Well, lighter on the rock, really. "Then things got progressively weirder," says Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear of the Animal Collective. AC members have known each other since grade school in Baltimore, but it wasn't until they all found themselves in New York for one reason or another that things got serious—and weird. If tape manipulations, sound collages and a genre commonly defined as "acid folk" are unfamiliar, "weird" might be a good place to start. Actually, the Collective is unconcerned with defining itself by genre and instead focuses solely on not repeating itself, bringing in elements of modern classical composition, prog-rock, jazz—you name it.

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