Improvisations: Susan Abod and Steve Figueroa

Vocalist and pianist dive headfirst into new projects

By Mel Minter

Arriving for the sound check before her first appearance at the Women’s Voices Concerts a few weeks back, vocalist Susan Abod wasn’t sure what to expect. She’d never played with the band for her set, led by pianist John Rangel.

The Doggfather answers our questions

Every member of the Alibi's editorial staff receives about a hundred e-mails a day. Most of them are interoffice communications about coffee filters or a kitchen spill that needs mopping up.

Moby Wait for Me · Spoon "Got Nuffin" · Ron Strauss Tangos de Santa Fe / Matapolvos

Yowza, the title track of this grammatically wrong three-song EP is solid, Spoony goodness. Atmospherically post-punk and laden with buzzy guitars, this gloomy song is, in my opinion, superior to every track on the band’s last full-length, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. I can't really say the same for song two, "Tweakers," which is some fuzzed-out, lyric-less electronic business. The final track, "Stroke Their Brains," adopts a scary, garage-psych sound. Equally as cool as numero uno. My recommendation: Ditch "Tweakers" and keep the rest. (JCC)
