listen up!

San Francisco’s Doe Eye (Maryam Qudus) is the master of a tricky blend: dissonant noise, and smooth pop songcraft. The tunes on her new album Television are apocalyptic dream pop with washes of distorted guitars, electronic noise and jagged, echoed drum patterns beneath smooth and luscious vocals crooning melodies native to the deepest melancholy.

The Ringers are very highly strung

Wayne Krantz dishes on the perils of ‘the supergroup’

By Dave Kirby
Anyone familiar with Wayne Krantz’s threedecade career (Berklee College of Music grad, sideman to the likes of Donald Fagan and Randy Brecker, a taciturn and artistically feral solo jazz/fusion/avant artist) might therefore find it surprising that the guitarist would be paired up with two other guitarists, Jimmy Herring and Michael Landau, in something that looks an awful lot like … one of those things.

The ‘Fifth’ for the 10th

Boulder Chamber Orchestra tackles its biggest-ever challenge: ‘dun dun dun dun’
