Minus the Bear’s May release OMNI, the Seattle-based band’s fourth full-length recording and debut for Dangerbird Records, shows the band making a sharp transformation in their sound. OMNI dives head first into the electro-pop sound that Minus the Bear flirted with in earlier works, building off the guitar focused works of 2007’s Planet Of Ice.
We’ve had the pleasure of catching a local Albuquerque jam band called The Noms twice this summer and decided this band is something to talk about! The ensemble collection of four guys and a gal never fail to impress as they lay down track after track of original material with well blended harmonies and impressive acoustic breakouts that belie their youth. Having already won local competitions and recently breaking into ITunes, it won't be long before the Noms move beyond the Sandia Scene. When they embark upon their 40 city tour next summer, remember you heard the name here first!
Deer Tick staged an impressive opening for the headliner Dr. Dog who seamlessly kept up the momentum by firing up the crowd in a way this band is becoming legendary for doing!
Richard March and Tyler Ragle are distinguished not only by the organic style of rock they have captured but also for the willingness to play for little more than a partaking of Scott’s liquid wizardry. We were thankful that they decided to make us a stop on their tour and look forward to the next visit. If you’re located somewhere between Albuquerque and Sacramento, look them up and catch the next show- you won’t leave disappointed!
Directed and written by Oklahoma native Bryan Beasley, and narrated by Val Kilmer, the viewer is immediately immersed from the outset in a rich cultural tapestry that describes Allan Houser’s rise to fame and the subsequent success of his two sons as they continue their father’s work to this day. Allan Houser has some very famous pieces to his name but perhaps the most significant part of his life were the dramatic changes he brought to the concept of Native American art during his tenure at the Santa Fe based Institute of Native American Arts from 1962-1975.
