    The Sea and Cake - Everybody Thrill Jockey

    As Pitchfork once said of the group Silkworm, consistency without spectacle can make for a tough sell. This axiom also applies to the Sea and Cake, but it has been mitigated somewhat by the act's danceability, which came to a head on 2000's Oui and 2...

    Mustangs and Madras - La Lechuza Latest Flame

    Mustangs and Madras continues to play a passionate brand of emo that's woefully (and refreshingly) out of step with the times. From first listen, the act's latest release recalls a bygone era when scenester kids took style cues from the geek chic of ...

    Get Three Coffins Ready - Get Three Coffins Ready Self-released

    Most retro acts try to duplicate the past -- but Get Three Coffins Ready isn't interested in mere restoration. Instead of driving the rock-instrumental styles of the '50s and '60s below the speed limit, the Coffins crew, who introduce this disc to th...

    Listen Up - Fast reviews of recent releases

    Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Strength & Loyalty (Interscope). How can a veteran group past its prime get back on top? By befriending Akon, who dominates the mewling yet undeniably catchy "I Tried." Been-there, done-that cuts such as the cheesy, Fleetwood Ma...

    The Killers - Thursday, May 17, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 303-830-8497.

    They were able to sell more than five million copies of their bottom-shaking, new-wave-flavored debut, Hot Fuss. But the Killers clearly learned a thing or two about playing the long odds in their Vegas stamping grounds, returning last October with a...

    Eric McFadden Trio - Thursday, May 17, Trilogy Wine Bar & Lounge, Boulder, 303-473-9463; Saturday, May 19, Bender's Tavern, 303-861-7070.

    The Eric McFadden Trio could just be the Band of Gypsys for the new millennium, a fact not lost on McFadden, who not only borrowed a few tricks from Hendrix, but even called his previous band the Eric McFadden Experience. In all fairness, though, McF...

    Love As Laughter - Saturday, May 19, Larimer Lounge, 303-291-1007.

    Does anyone truly know what indie rock sounds like? While the term is as ubiquitious as alt-rock was over a decade ago, it can also be extremely nebulous. Even so, there's one musician whose music embodies the designation: Sam Jayne, one of the prima...

    Animal Collective - Monday, May 21, Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom, 303-297-1772.

    The "collective" part of Animal Collective's name is meant literally. Although the group is built around a core quartet -- Avey Tare, Geologist, Deaken and, inevitably, Panda Bear -- the musicians play and record in assorted configurations; some trac...

    VietNam - Monday, May 21, Larimer Lounge, 303-291-1007.

    Mickey Madden of Maroon 5 reportedly financed VietNam's self-titled debut full-length -- but don't hold that against singer/songwriter Michael Gerner, whose band shares this bill with the Black Angels and Mothership. Granted, Gerner's a classicist of...

    This Just In... - The latest nightlife news.

    Most people's idea of doing karaoke involves standing alone on a stage in front of a mike, singing the words to a song that they vaguely know, helped along by reading the words on a screen. The setting, of course, varies depending upon where you go. ...

    Tripp Nasty Orchestra - Carioca Cafe

    With the focused intensity of Friedrich Nietzsche, Tripp Nasty leads his avant chamber orchestra through a variety of classical musical styles. Instead of adhering to the compositions of yesteryear, though, Tripp composes and arranges his own music, ...

    Slim 7 - Giving back in a big way.

    I am your target demographic -- young and hip, a bit edgy, even. I have a blas hipster fashion sense and a Buffy-like ability to make adjectives out of pop-culture references. I am SXSW and CMJ. I am Urban Outfitters. I am the youth of today, an...

    Hey, Kids

    Nine. That's the number of shows that the Heyday has actually played. In this week's Beatdown, I speculated that number was fewer than fifty. And before the ink was even dry on that column, I received an e-mail from Heyday bassist Pete Wynn -- whose ...

    All that Jazz

    In the parking lot, a massive dude stood between two maniacally gesturing females. It looked like he was trying to mediate a burgeoning chick fight -- which I'm sure he'd also had a hand in inspiring. The heated confrontation provoked me and Sweetie ...

    On the Download - Linking you to the best in legitimate, artist-approved exclusives.

    Matt Mahaffey is probably best known as the guy behind the Expedia.com jingle, which is a shame. His indie-pop outfit, Self, is just as catchy. It's been seven years since Self put out a legitimate release (DreamWorks refused to release Self's 2004 L...

    Dungen - Tio Bitar Kemado Records

    Creatively speaking, Sweden's Gustav Ejstes, the man behind Dungen, refuses to remain earthbound. On Tio Bitar, he takes listeners on a trip to the Fab Nebula, where almost everything within earshot sounds literally out of this world. Ejstes's ing...
