Music to Your Ears

50 Years Later, The Grammys Got Good

Although our man Rahim Alhaj didn't pick up Grammy gold for Best Traditional World Music Album, all in all—and I never thought I'd say this—the Grammys were totally entertaining. Awkward and tedious at times, sure, but I challenge any massive award show to shake those fugly bedfellows. I really couldn't ask for more.

Liars

Liars

A case study in perpetual reinvention

Once unhappily lumped into the genre of dance punk, Los Angeles, Calif., power-trio Liars can now only be described as ever-changing.

Le Chat Lunatique’s Demonic Lovely Gives Dancers and Listeners Cause for Celebration

CD captures the verve, swing and musicality of this “filthy, mangy jazz” quartet

The appeal of Le Chat Lunatique’s live performances owes as much to its bandmates patter and seriocomic stage presence as it does to their music—and the music is damn good. They’ve managed to translate that appeal to their new studio CD, Demonic Lovely, without visual or verbal aids. The music and the commitment with which it is played, it turns out, are really what it’s all about, whether you’re on the dance floor or sinking into a sofa.

Sonic Reducer

Omar Sosa Afreecanos · Grand Archives The Grand Archives · Lightspeed Champion Falling Off The Lavender Bridge

On Afreecanos, jazz pianist/composer Omar Sosa’s first studio recording since 2004’s masterwork Mulatos, the musics of Africa and the New World again go swimming together in the sea of his imagination and artistry. Featuring 21 musicians on traditional African and modern instruments, Afreecanos is more orchestrated and more rhythm-centric than Mulatos (fragments of which appear fleetingly on every track in Sosa’s piano improvs) but it continues the same fabulously successful experiment. Though not as consistent as its predecessor, Afreecanos does offer several tracks that equal or surpass anything on Mulatos, including “Nene La Kanou,” “Ollú” and the elegiac “Why Anga?” (MM)

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, May 6)

Floating on Cloud Nine

Infrequency • trance • Graeme Byous • electronica, progressive • AnthonyMarx 9 • house

As a society we can agree that we’re ready for a heightened consciousness. In my experience, that is achieved through music–specifically trance. On Friday, May 6, at 9pm you can be lifted up physically, by climbing the stairs up to the mezzanine at the Historic El Rey Theater, and mentally, after listening to the rhythms and noise from AnthonyMarx, Graeme Byous, and Infrequency…
