The jokers of spades

Red Fang likes its sludge-metal with a hint of whimsy

By Adam Perry
Not many modern metal groups are featured on NPR’s First Listen or routinely garner nearly a halfmillion YouTube views when a new music video is released. But Portland sludge-rock favorite Red Fang, which plays the Gothic Theatre in Denver this Friday night, has a unique way of maintaining a sense of unbridled fun, for both band and listener, while playing remarkably heavy songs with remarkably dark lyrics.

monsters

Colorado Springs folksters Aaah!RealMonsters (two members of the 5-piece St. Louis based pop-punk band of the same name) are all about the harmonies, pulling pop-rock tunes from influences like the Avett Brothers and Johnny Cash for an acoustic coffeehouse sound with a grunge edge.

Bass logic

Victor Wooten explains it all

By Dave Kirby
When Victor Wooten, arguably the greatest electric bass player of his generation, rolls into town this week, he will uncharacteristically be playing without any of his brothers — his band instead will consist of some longtime friends and players, several of whom appear on his twin releases Sword and Stone.

What they do

Shook Twins embrace a more mature, darker sound on new album

By Brian Palmer
If variety is the spice of life, then the music that Laurie and Katelyn Shook (Shook Twins) make is very spicy. Their early albums have included everything from tales about robot love to near Biblical levels of flooding, and their live shows feature beatboxing, singing and one of the twins clucking like a chicken.

Colorado’s favorite band

The Naked and Famous don’t do anything half-assed

By Josh Gross
When the band swings through the region for its only in-state show this week, it will play not at Red Rocks or the Pepsi Center or any of the other mega-venues you’d expect “Colorado’s favorite band” to fill, but at the much more modestly sized Boulder Theater.

Daybreak

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.

rock

Heroin may be “so passe,” but not the band that sung about it. The Dandy Warhols started 20 years ago in Portland and are still going strong, playing mellow alternative rock tunes with a feel good vibe even when they broach some lyrically bleak subject matter.

Focus puller

William Fitzsimmons writes his new album from the outside looking in

By Brian Palmer
When it came time for singer-songwriter-guitarist William Fitzsimmons to start work on his newest project, Lions — which released in February — it felt like a personal and professional reboot.
