    PHX Hold Em

    It's been a while since I last checked in with Pokafase, the 'Nix's long-suffering aspirant to establishing PHX hip-hop as a west coast powerhouse. His latest album The Martyr is due out any time, so I grabbed a couple of his tracks (one off of Maste...

    Snow Songs for the Winter

    A few bar nights back I went out with my old friend Yolanda Bejarano, who's not only a swell girl but an incredible musician, and who's been cranking out music since I moved here eleven years ago, in bands like Slugger, the Slowdown, and a mariachi b...

    Radar Jamming

    Wow, that was a particularly uninspired heading for a blog post about one of the 'Nix's only superstars, DJ Radar. Astute longtime readers may already have realized that I've long been a homey of Radar's as well as a fan; I once took him back to my h...

    Hellas Cool - Martian chronic

    As a music critic, it's a given that I see a shitload of local bands. I also see a lot of bad local bands, or at least ones that could really use some adjustments. Even talented acts around town bore the hell out of me if I see them a few times and t...

    Sonic Terror - Men in the hoods

    Now that extreme metal with an arty edge hardly seems trailblazing anymore, the concept of super-short albums stocked with blink-and-you'll-miss-it bursts of noise is losing its postmodern thrill. Though several acts have worked this angle with fresh...

    Getting Over Emo - Fall Out Boy transcends a taboo tag

    There is no better way to dismissively sum up a rock band than by labeling it "emo." This has almost universally worked for the past six or seven years, with few exceptions. But when those few exceptions do occur, music aficionados and pop culture, i...

    Treasure Mammal - You Wish I Was Channeling Your Spirit (Dreamy Draw Music)

    Popularity, in a Yogi Berra-esque paradox, alienates some music fans. They either don't want to be sheep or they simply want to avoid being trampled by the existing sheep in an eerie frenzy inspired by, let's say, the bouncy sweatball of performing e...

    Wax Tailor - Hope & Sorrow (Decon Inc)

    A patchwork of film and TV samples, scratches, and elegant baroque instrumentation on Hope & Sorrow follows French turntablist/producer Wax Tailor's 2005 debut, which isn't entirely different from this latest effort. Two years ago, Tailor employed lo...

    The Detroit Cobras - Tied & True (Bloodshot Records)

    At some point in rock 'n' roll, creativity got confused with originality bands and singers were suspect if their songs weren't self-penned. Performers recording others' songs were often seen as less "genuine" by the terminally hip. That kind of thi...

    Andrew Hill - Compulsion (Blue Note Records: RVG Edition)

    Compulsion is one of those albums that makes you scratch your head with wonder at how it could ever have gone out of print in the first place. Maybe we can blame the overabundance of jazz albums in the stratosphere, or maybe it's because the late pia...

    Beach House - Beach House (Carpark Records)

    Airily pretty, vicariously depressing, and just plain emotionally exhausting, the Velvet Underground & Nico tune "Sunday Morning" nailed comedown bummer rock with such precision that most later efforts in that direction have been left wanting. Some 3...

    Grinderman - Grinderman (Anti-)

    Nick Cave hasn't played electric guitar for years and his primitive, grinding approach to the instrument inspired the name of the band and the thrashing, primal, punky noise it spits out on its debut album. With Bad Seeds Warren Ellis (violin, keyboa...

    Nickel Creek - Ain't nothin' but a twang

    Perhaps only The New York Times could have written this headline: "Bluegrass That Can Twang and Be Cool Too." Excuse me? Somebody inform the Gray Lady that all bluegrass is cool. Nickel Creek, the subject of the above header, is just different. The t...

    Gwen Stefani - Get on board or move out of the way

    McDowell Mountain Music Festival - Mixing up the jam

    Of all forms of music, you're most likely to catch two complementary bands on the same bill at a jamband show. In this case, San Francisco four-piece Tea Leaf Green and rural New Jersey sextet Railroad Earth both take the indelible influence of the B...
