Fleet Foxes Fleet Foxes · Melvins Nude With Boots · Gavin Rossdale Wanderlust

Fleet Foxes' debut evokes wide-open spaces and adventures in the wilderness. When you’re finished cutting through vines of choral singing and sloshing through rivers of reverberating guitars, you realize the reward is in the journey. Sometimes ’70s Southern rock is the backdrop, while on other occasions, the band goes with a luscious soundscape of multipart harmonies. While it’s never disorienting, the record is completely devoid of a standard verse-chorus-verse structure, instead wafting from part to part like a feather falling to the ground. Fleet Foxes moves at an unhurried pace, but for a band that digs on atmosphere, things move along relatively quickly. (SM)

EVENT HORIZON (Thursday, Jun 29)

You don't need rain to see this rainbow

Reighnbeau • indietronica • Sazoram • electronic • Austin Morrell • rock

I have always been astounded by the potential of sound; for millennia, sounds have been pieced together in inventive ways, entrancing audiences and shaping emotion through music. Music to me is a thing of magic, constantly transforming into something new in the hands of those with the ability to harness that magic. Albuquerque native Bryce Hample, better known as the mastermind behind the surreal vibrations of Reighnbeau, is truly one of those wizards, an electro-maestro with a brilliant capability for intricately layering sounds where one would least expect, but where they truly belong. This Thursday, June 29, Reighnbeau will be transforming Sister into a dreamlike world of glinting shoegaze and celestial ambience, adorned by Hample’s remarkable capabilities for visual art and mesmerizing performance even as he concocts the magic of music before our eyes. Featuring opening performances from Sazoram and Austin Morrell, the cosmic stage will be set at 9pm. Be sure to get your tickets at the presale price of $5 before they go up at the door.
