Music to Your Ears

Summer Skiing

Everybody and their mom hosts a music festival during the summer.

Only a few fests deserve the spotlight. Fewer still warrant a three-hour drive into the heart of Northern New Mexico. The first-ever Taos Mountain Music Festival on Saturday, Aug. 15, is poised to make it worth your while. Genre-melding Ozomatli headlines a full day of music held on four acres of Taos Ski Valley. Bob Marley's backup band The Wailers and singer-songwriter Joan Osborne beef up the bill.

Alejandro Blake, events director for Taos Ski Valley, says the lineup reflects a desire for diversity. "What we were really trying to do is have an eclectic group of artists," Blake says. "Somebody who listens to Joan might not listen to Ozo, but I think they'll come up here and appreciate Ozo's music and vice versa. There's no music that's going to be too harsh for anybody."

Sonic Reducer

Tim O'Rourke Backyard Dreams · Joel Harrison Urban Myths · Julian Plenti Julian Plenti Is Skyscraper

Guitarist Joel Harrison—whose compositions are typically shaped as much by rigorous intellect as by Dionysian inclinations—relaxes on Urban Myths, preferring to groove on the rhythmic and sonic pleasures of electronic jazz. Intellect is never abandoned, but Harrison and friends (particularly saxophonist David Binney and violinist Christian Howes) are after an ecstatic expression that owes more to groove than gray matter. From “Last Waltz for Queva,” pregnant with loss and affection, to the funky “Straight No Chaser,” to the rock feel of “High Expectation Low Return,” Harrison explores his fusion self and plays some wailing guitar.

EVENT HORIZON (Tuesday, Mar 7)

Bring a Tissue

Gaby Fuentes • Regulus • Tear Pressure • indie pop, punk

An up and coming local band I have been enjoying listening to is named Tear Pressure. I found out about them when I was wandering the local college campus and saw a flyer for a show they were doing at some apartment complex up on Copper, in the heights, yo. That was a decent show with an excellent barbeque and I felt like Tear Pressure was going to appear on the scene within the year. Now of course, they are playing their dirty and delicious, slithery and subtle no wave at Burt's Tiki Lounge on Monday, March 6, and as usual at Burt's there is no goddamn cover charge. Ever. I hear some daring lo-fi pop credentials being built on tunes from the band's latest recording, the Chill Ass EP—songs like “Quaaludes” and “All Moms Are Weirdos.” that build intensity as they roll through cray melodic and stylistic changes. They'll be opening for math mastermind and CRTTRZ guitarist Gabriel Angel Fuentes and Austin indie taco-rockers Regulus, so be there
