    Thank God for Astronauts - Bring Us Meat Needlepoint Records

    Bring Us Meat, Thank God for Astronauts' latest effort, is, to be precise, impressively bland. The album (due for release this Saturday, April 21, at the hi-dive) is a mostly mediocre attempt at cutesy-yet-earnestly-indie pop music, and despite since...

    The Inconsolable - A Disappearing Contest Pearsonified Records

    Bassist Chris Pearson has been a key component in two strong Denver bands, Jux County and the Czars. Now he's a member of the Inconsolable, and if his new group's not yet on the level of these predecessors, it's on the right road. The liner notes ...

    Listen Up - Fast reviews of recent releases

    The Four Level, Stars From Aircraft (Breakbeat Science). Veteran drum-and-bass producer Pieter K and singer/songwriter/psychotherapist Amy Jacob team up to produce a pumped-up, chilled-out full-length. K creates darkly dynamic electronic backdrops fo...

    Klaxons - Thursday, April 19, Larimer Lounge, 303-291-1007.

    U.K. scenesters understand that it's easier to come up with a new descriptor for a musical subgenre than it is to actually invent a fresh sound. Hence "new rave," which cleverly combines two tried-and-true handles in a manner that means everything an...

    Ari Hoenig Punk Bop Trio - Dazzle, Friday, April 20, and Saturday, April 21, 303-839-5100.

    Ari Hoenig may be an explosive, heavy-handed madman on a drum kit, but he's equally at home swinging lightly on a ballad or plunging into the outer extremes of an avant-jazz excursion. Hoenig is one of the more innovative drummers to come along since...

    Say Anything - Friday, April 20, Gothic Theatre, 1-866-468-7621.

    Say Anything's ...Is a Real Boy is the absolute zenith of MySpace-era pop punk. Deranged and volatile, with psychotically catchy choruses and anthemic chants and million-dollar hooks bursting in every direction, it's ten pounds of psycho in a five-po...

    Relient K - Saturday, April 21, Fillmore Auditorium, 303-830-8497.

    For members of the original hardcore generation, the concept of polite punk is oxymoronic in the extreme -- on par with family-friendly heavy metal and hip-hop done the Aaron Carter way. For listeners young enough to be free of historical hangups, ho...

    Nas - Wednesday, April 25, Fillmore Auditorium, 303-830-8497.

    On his latest effort, Hip-Hop Is Dead, Nas performs an autopsy on rap's corpse, and the results are ugly: Toothless rap pioneers-turned-crackheads and one-hit wonders who have no sense of history populate hip-hop's wasteland. By contemplating the dem...

    This Just In... - Electric Cowboy

    It's funny how the most trivial things can get a guy pumped up. For a dude who spends a lot of time in dives, a Thursday night in a country bar seemed like a nice diversion. Driving west down highway 36 toward the newly opened Electric Cowboy (88...

    Wild Game - Larimer Lounge

    Okay, pretend Nirvana never forced hair bands into early retirement -- it can be pretty bleak to think about. But if you listen to the recorded output of Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, you might hear something a little different. Not just soloing for th...

    Ciao! Wednesdays - The Lure

    I like narrow bars. The rectangular kind, with a long stretch of booths on one side and bar stools lined up on the other. Architectural slivers of space with claustrophobic pathways about three feet wide and thirty feet deep. The more cramped the...

    Calm - Anti-Smiles Dirty Laboratory

    Time and AwareNess have been collaborating for years. Though the two MCs are somewhat obscure in Denver, they've earned a dedicated following across the country, even counting members of the Anticon collective as fans. On Anti-Smiles, released under ...

    Storytyme - Patchwork Quilt Dragons Tale Music

    Patchwork Quilt contradicts its title. Far from feeling scattershot, the disc is infinitely more consistent than its predecessor, RV Livin'. Yet it retains a lot of the lunacy that made the earlier album so likable. Musically, the theme is blues ro...

    Joseph Arthur & the Lonely Astronauts - Sound Bites

    Joseph Arthur & the Lonely Astronauts, Let's Just Be (Lonely Astronaut Records). Either Arthur has just discovered hallucinogens or he's found a non-pharmaceutical way of temporarily losing his mind. Let's Just Be is easily his most unhinged disc -- ...

    Lesbian, Power Hr (Holy Mountain). Probably the worst band name ever, but this dense slab of psychedelic, relentlessly heavy metal redeems the Seattle quartet. With just four tracks spanning over an hour, Power Hr ranks with classics like the Melvi...

    Billy Martin & John Medeski, Mago (Amulet). These guys have been meaning to make a duet record since they first jammed nearly twenty years ago. Aside from a few free jams and a hipster-tinged bossa nova cut, Medeski and Martin don't stray too far the...
