Shoulder Voices   In Space!

Show Up!

Shoulder Voices In Space! Release Party

Although the band's been performing since 2001, Shoulder Voices never officially released an album. This week, however, the eclectic Albuquerque group—powered by Little Bobby, The Musk and a rotating cast of characters—will unleash its first proper, non-CDR collection of recorded material. In Space! is a concept album rooted in '70s psychedelia, as well as a means of furthering the band's aggressively festive shows.

Spotlight

The Ambassadors of Good Fucking Times

Black Maria’s overdue debut

In the pack of snarling dogs that is a music scene, scraps of praise, stage time and fans are hard-won. Somehow, Black Maria finds itself with more meat than it can eat. You won't see members badgering social networking friends with notices or merch. Fans spread the word, and they do it well. A Black Maria gig doesn't happen all that often, and when it does, it's an event of towering amplifiers, volume you can feel in your chest cavity and a big, rowdy audience.

Oh yeah, and free Frito pies while they last! Join us on the Blackbird Buvette patio (509 Central NW) on Wednesday from 5 to 10 p.m. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)

Sonic Reducer

Stereo Total Baby Ouh! · Jeff Beck Emotion & Commotion · Broken Social Scene Forgiveness Rock Record

Françoise Cactus and Brezel Göring will not disappoint Stereo Total fans with this May 4 release. The Berlin-based synth/pop/dance/experimental duo has created another humorous, multilingual, low-fi album full of super catchy dance tunes. (I’m bopping up and down in my chair as I write this.) Although the duo recorded 40 songs for its first full-length since 2007, there are only 17 tracks here—which ones appear on your album depend on the country where you buy it. The U.S. release has more offerings in English than its Euro counterpart, plus one song in Japanese. All are richly layered with Stereo Total staples—samples, bouncy beats and silly noises—and feature lots of guest musicians like Gina D’Orio from Cobra Killer and Scottish performance artist Miss le Bomb.

Dr. Dog, learning a new song

Music Magnified

Dr. Dog Makes a House Call

On its cross-country tour two years ago, Philadelphia’s Dr. Dog—a quirky, lovable indie-soul band—packed bars that held 200 people when the fire department wasn’t looking. Last year, Dr. Dog electrified crowds at 400 to 500 capacity clubs, and this spring the endearing, addicting band is filling even bigger theaters. Luckily for New Mexicans, Dr. Dog still loves to play the rare smaller gig, and getting bigger certainly hasn’t made the band cocky.

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
