    Wolf Parade bites back at critiques of At Mount Zoomer

    Montreal indie-rock quintet Wolf Parade -- relentlessly championed by Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock -- made a huge splash in 2005 with their exhilarating debut full-length, Apologies to the Queen Mary. Three years later, they're back with a follo...

    Hot Topic Summer Slaughter Tour

    With 10 like-minded bands on the same bill, it'll be damn near impossible to avoid death metal overkill here. But if you can find a way to conserve your energy, the Summer Slaughter tour features two Montreal death metal bands that go together like, ...

    Straight, No Chaser

    Not to be confused with the ultra-polished Indiana University a cappella group of the same name (though that would be funny as shit), this extreme metal outfit dares to go where most of its peers fear to tread. Which is to say: awkwardness. Yes, Stra...

    Todd Rundgren

    A Todd Rundgren performance could include just about anything from the multi-instrumentalist's 41-year career: the '60s garage rock of his old band Nazz, his early '70s power pop solo work, his mid-'70s Zappa-esque experimental stage, his '80s New Wa...

    Tilly and the Wall

    Omaha's Tilly and the Wall doesn't have a drummer. But the band's figured out a way to lay down the beat just the same: Member Jamie Pressnall provides percussive rhythms by tap-dancing. Yes, tap-dancing. Left to the wrong feet, it could all turn int...

    Rusted Root

    This Pittsburgh jam band has long been a shared favorite of Deadheads everywhere (the devout are known as "Rootheads"), as the band's music incorporates world-music percussion and touches of bluegrass, but leaves room for improvisational jams. Some o...

    Switch Wednesdays

    We were surfing through DJ Tranzit's impressive-looking MySpace page (www.myspace.com/tranzit) the other day, and besides being amused by the house music maestro's catchphrases ("Some people call it a dance floor. I call it my office"), we peeped a p...

    Let freedom rock: Ten musical moments that shaped who we are as a country

    Rock 'n' roll has had a hefty impact on American pop culture and identity for the past 50 years or so, more often than not intersecting with our politics and whatever social unrest afflicts us at the time. With Independence Day right around the corne...

    There's an infamous video on YouTube of iconic Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook "DJing" at Serbia's EXIT festival in 2006. And by "DJing" we mean twisting knobs on an equalizer like a coked-up hamster while the Tom Neville track "Just F...

    Common raps about his film career and upcoming album Invincible Summer

    Two-time Grammy winner Common, 36, is best known for his socially conscious rhymes on albums like Be and, more recently, Finding Forever, but that probably won't be the case for long. Like so many rappers, he's been bitten by the acting bug. Last yea...

    Underwater Getdown - Supersymmetry (self-released)

    Underwater Getdown's not real big on linear arrangement, with its various instruments intruding on choruses and bridges and taking the songs for wild swings around the meter. There's some good, moody songwriting here, and some nice melodies, but styl...

    16volt

    In 1991, 16volt founder Eric Powell had a vision: He wanted to merge the gritty, primal guitars of garage rock and punk with the relentless machinistic throttle and hum of industrial beats. The result was a barrage of "coldwave" songs brimming with b...

    The Beautiful Bodies - Touch Me (self-released)
