  • Andrew Jackson Jihad/Partners in 818 - Self-Titled


    Andrew Jackson Jihad/Partners in 818 - Self-Titled (self-released)

    It's not uncommon for a rock group to feature guest spots, rotating personnel, or additional instruments. Add a guitarist here, substitute a vocalist there, mic that kit a bit differently, and the textures change. Usually, the band retains their foun...

  • Dimonet - Self-Titled


    Dimonet - Self-Titled (www.myspace.com/dimonetonline)

    This East Valley quartet labels its music as "rock/funk/jazz," but it's easy enough to file their self-titled debut under just good ol' "rock." Many of the songs feature piano alongside precise rock guitar hooks and funky bass lines, along with memor...

    Nicole Mitchell's Black Earth Ensemble - Black Unstoppable (Delmark Records)

    It's a bloody shame that many folks outside of Chicago have never heard of Down Beat Magazine award-winning flautist Nicole Mitchell. Black Unstoppable, the first Delmark record by a woman in the label's 54-year history, should help her achieve some ...

    Daft Punk - Alive 2007 (Virgin Records)

    The '70s fell to Pink Floyd -- and so the Zeroes have fallen to Daft Punk. The French duo started churning out techno/house/electronica music in the '90s. Now, they're globally dilated and definers of that diffuse genre. Alive 2007, their new album, ...

  • Nashville Pussy


    Nashville Pussy

    If sleaze rock is the tongue-kissing cousin of heavy metal, then Nashville Pussy is Gene Simmons' hillbilly stunt double. Led by the twin-guitar attack of husband and wife duo Blaine Cartwright and Ruyter Suys, the Atlanta-based act got its start glo...

    Johnny Rawls

    There was a time when blues and R&B/black popular music were not so very far apart. Performers such as Etta James, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and Little Johnny Taylor merged the gritty, down-home aspects of the former with the polished, up-market style of t...

    Grand Buffet

    "There's plenty of races on God's green planet, that doesn't mean you have to breed with them, goddammit," rap unrepentant wiseacres Grand Buffet on "Americus (Religious Right Rock)," whose chorus mockingly lauds the child labor that produced its T-s...

    Jody Gnant

    Though she gained plenty of attention for participating in Kyle MacDonald's One Red Paper Clip trade project and her 24-hour lifestreams on the Internet, the music remains the best thing about this Phoenix-based indie musician. Her soulful mezzo-sopr...

    Boxing Match - Record companies get greedy with repackaging excess

    As two different Radiohead releases this month prove, rock boxed sets aren't becoming any more sensible. The "discbox" version of the band's new release, In Rainbows, is stuffed with extras. They range from useful (music), through aimless (booklets a...

    Homme New Year's Eve Party

    The turntablists are definitely gonna be out in force on Monday, December 31 (a.k.a. New Year's Eve), as nearly every DJ worth his or her weight in used vinyl has some sort of wax-working session planned for Auld Lang Syne. But if you can't get into ...

    Reviewing the Reviews - The Fiery Furnaces

    The Fiery Furnaces -- the frequently conceptual Brooklyn indie/art rock band with siblings Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger at its creative core -- is typically branded with such adjectives as "difficult," "challenging," "dizzying," and "unpredictable...

    Eve of Reconstruction - Jerry Riopelle rocks on

    Jerry Riopelle is an old-school cat, which means that the singer/songwriter's been making records longer than almost anybody else in the Valley. As a staff writer and producer for Phil Spector's Philles Records in Los Angeles, Riopelle wrote his firs...

    Road Trip to Cowtown: Checking in with Andy Hersey

    Apologies for my absence from the blogosphere; prior to the weekend I went on a camping/hiking/swimming trip to Fossil Creek in the Mogollon Rim, and there was no wireless internet up there. Before I left though I went on Thursday night to see my co...

    Try Me Bicycle - Voicings (www.trymebicycle.com)

    Imagine a coffee shop gig. There's dude or dudette strumming away on stage, pouring his or her heart into the mic in between sips of complimentary joe (the musician's payment for performing). It's a nice change from the sounds of grinding beans and y...

    Beep! Beep!

    It's finally winter, and I'm feeling like that damn coyote in the cartoons, hungry for something good to put in my facehole. I'm tired as hell of chasing that elusive euphoric high by gulping beer and wine -- a compromise I've been trying since my do...

    Won't You Be My Neighbor? - Arcadia after dark

    The Arcadia neighborhood is known for stellar real estate and early mornings at La Grande Orange. So the nightlife is most likely to take place safely at home with a nice bottle of wine in a setting fit for a Pottery Barn catalog. But we had our susp...

    Source Victoria - The Fast Escape (www.myspace.com/sourcevictoria)

    Many have defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results," which explains why Ben Franklin flew his kite in lightning only once. In pop music, you want that kind of insanity -- plus repetition and reiteration ...

    Though some believe Lupe Fiasco is too smart for mainstream rap, thats not exactly true. Most of the lyrics on his sophomore release, Lupe Fiascos The Cool, are pretty basic, clichd stuff, right down to the CDs opening monologue, They thought it...
