Pepper’s repin’

Music Interview

Pepper

Proof that you can take the band out of Hawaii, but you can’t take Hawaii out of the band

No stressing here. Even after relocating to California, recording six albums and touring extensively, the three busy men of reggae-infused rock act Pepper manage to keep their watches on laid-back Hawaiian time—their native Kona, to be exact. The Alibi relaxed with Pepper drummer Yesod Williams and got a bead on Pepper’s record label, a dream tour with NOFX and what the Aloha State and The Land of Enchantment have in common.

Jim Coker, local software developer behind Numerology

On the Scene

Fun with Sequencers

Local programmer writes a music program that fills a void

When Jim Coker started performing live electronic shows 12 years ago, he found himself frustrated by the available software. "And I had this other problem, which is that I'm a software developer," he says, half-joking. "Then I had some free time." He got to work on a more ideal music program, and after about a year, he had something worth putting out. It's been five years since Coker, an Albuquerque resident, began. The program's still a work in progress, but he says he's created a product that provides a decent middle ground in the world of electronic music software.

Sonic Reducer

Portugal. The Man Censored Colors · TV on the Radio Dear Science · Joel Harrison The Wheel

It’s important to remember that not all Alaskans are Sarah Palin. Some, like the members of Portugal. The Man, are more interested in crafting lush, Technicolor melodies than a bridge to nowhere. Teleporting from sharp-edged prog-rock to folksy sing-alongs and peculiar, electro examinations, Censored Colors is unfiltered; it splatters on the canvas and drips to the ground. Lead singer John Gourley is trailed by a cluster of falsetto backup vocals that answers his every call. At its kitschiest, the album borders on faux-rock opera, but somehow it works. There’s an unchained spirit inside Portugal. The Man that runs on adrenaline and only comes out at night. (SM)

EVENT HORIZON (Tuesday, Jan 24)

Not Just Red

Chevelle • alternative • Black Map • Dinosaur Pile-Up • rock

Chevelle, an indie band from the midwest, portrays their hard sound—expressed with exasperated vocals, a muscular rhythms and chunky guitar riffs that repeatedly drift off into tangential melodies—as an artful thing, comparable to nineties peers like Tool. And they do sound like Tool—if their latest single “Door to Door Cannibals” is any indication—when that band was at its peak at the end of the last millennium. Whether this particular vernacular is still credible in a rocanrol world that is rapidly evolving away from rocanrol remains to be seen, yet Chevelle does provide solid affirmation that such beefy sounds are still commercially, if not aesthetically viable. Currently a familial unit comprised of brothers Pete and Sam Loeffler as well as their brother-in-law Dean Bernardini, Chevelle continues to use themes of darkness and domination to draw radio-friendly audiences worldwide. Burqueños can get a taste of their rockingly reserved rampage when the trio visit our town on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Black Map and Dinosaur Pile-Up open this 13+ show at the El Rey that costs between $25-$45.
