Music Monday Aug. 21

Washed Out, 2 Chainz, Steep Canyon Rangers
Live Redux: Washed Out Ever since the first episode of Portlandia, I’ve been obsessed with the gauzy, mellow synthpop sounds of Washed Out. As summer fades, and the memories of good times therein do likewise, it’s the perfect soundtrack.

The debut EP by Slick Velveteens plus DAS Energi and RodGab
Slick Velveteens release self-titled debut Nearly six months ago, Bountiful’s Slick Velveteens were as fresh-faced and underdeveloped as their name implies—and I said so, when blurbing their then-imminent tour-sendoff show at The Urban Lounge. At the time, their entire recorded output consisted of three live clips from a December 2016 appearance on Park City TV’s Mtn Views.

Music Monday Aug. 7

Pondering Eddie Money; Thunderfist beer pong postponed
The Idea of Eddie Money I was somewhere between 6 and 8 years old when I first heard the word “paradise.” My very Mormon great-grandmother loved me enough to permit the viewing of certain music-themed TV shows, like Solid Gold. One evening, just before my mom picked me up, I saw Eddie Money perform his signature hit “Two Tickets to Paradise” on one of these programs.

Music Monday July 31

More Honeypot headliners, and Swantourage's working-class jazz
Honeypot Glass Blowing Competition & Art Festival Redux Glass blowing—the alchemical art of melting down material known to shatter into gooey blobs, then using your very breath to stretch and twist it into colorful, intricate shapes—is fascinating. It’s almost enough to drive an entire festival, but the Honeypot Glass Blowing Competition & Art Festival (The Art Garden, 627 W. 100 South, 801-722-5865, is much more than that.

Music Monday for July 24

In search of Christian Jonassen, and jamming with jazz.
Whither Christian Jonassen? The day Christian Jonassen came into my life—courtesy of Bob Moss and Mike Kirkland, who handed me a copy of his debut album—was one of the most confusing and happiest days of my life.

Crate diggin’ with Spaff and WFMU, beer pongin’ with Thunderfist.
Virtual Crate Diggin’: Lenny & the Squigtones Elder Utah Smith I will rhapsodize about the joys of crate diggin’—going to record stores and searching for hours through boxes, looking for undiscovered gold or rare gems—forever. Same goes for virtual crate diggin’.

Music Monday

Mondays suck. Music makes ‘em better.
Gruber at REDACTED Why start a new music blog with a review of a show you’ll never get to see? Because of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, for one.

A chat with the opening act from this past Friday's show at Kilby Court
I've always enjoyed going to Kilby Court to see shows. I've been going almost since day one, when it was considered really sketchy to be going to the west end of town, just two blocks shy of Area 51, to see an all-ages show out of what is essentially a garage.

Local Releases: Karaoke With Bubbles

New local albums from SuperBubble, NSPS, Human Leather and more.
We've got one whole release show this weekend, which is fine considering that mother nature decided to have a seizure in our back yard this week, and caused all four seasons to happen within a 24-hour period, so getting out may not be a priority for some. First, here's a quick list of all the local albums that came out digitally this week; then join us below for the release show info.
