    Tomcat Courtney - Downsville Blues (Blue Witch)

    Not to get all "purist," but it's no secret that blues -- along with its bastard child, rock 'n' roll -- has been "gentrified" to within an inch of its life. (Cripes, songs by the Who and the Clash are being used to sell cars.) There are hundreds of ...

    M83 - Saturdays = Youth (Mute)

    The sun-bleached cover photo for Saturdays = Youth shows how much this band is consumed by nostalgia. M83's Anthony Gonzalez combines synths, treated guitar washes, and '80s drum sounds ("We Own the Sky" and "Graveyard Girl") on M83's fifth album, as...

    She & Him - Volume One (Merge Records)

    With the possible exception of the three people who look back fondly on Bruce Willis' recording career, we're well acquainted with the eardrum damage that can occur when actors live out their rock-star fantasies. But don't shy away from She & Him's d...

    Neva Dinova

    The jaunty, strummed rhythm of "Squirrels" counters the sentiment at its center; frontman Jake Bellows notices a squirrel doing "backflips for change, for a lady who vacuums her heartache away," before the brokenhearted singer confesses, "I just keep...

    Margot & the Nuclear So and So's

    From the music to their name, there's an unmistakable precociousness at play with Margot & the Nuclear So & So's -- perhaps not surprising given the moniker was inspired by The Royal Tenenbaums. Certainly don't hold it against singer/guitarist Richar...

    The Kills

    To hear them tell it, photogenic Kills principals Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince were lost before they found each other -- ambitious outsiders trapped in standard-issue punk bands. Drawn together like bullied drama-club kids, Mosshart (a Floridian f...

    The Brother Unconnected: A Tribute to Sun City Girls

    For many, punk rock was/is an end in itself, an opportunity to rock fast 'n' loud and/or dress up funny. For others, punk was a door to limitless cultural possibilities, a way of denying obstacles to artistic expression. The UK's Pop Group and the Ra...

    Right around the time Kim Fowley was assembling The Runaways, Lita Ford and Joan Jett's pre-solo-success girl group, he was also co-writing songs for this album ("King of the Night Time World," "Do You Love Me"). But it's the tracks that producer Bob...

    Dios Malos gets points right off the bat for arousing the ire of none other than Ronnie James Dio, who, in a particularly befuddled show of hubris, ordered the band to change its original name, Dios (which, for those of you who don't know, means "god...

    Mariah Carey - E=MC2 (Island)

    It's a tad disconcerting to hear Mariah Carey's once-unrestrained voice squeezed through producer T-Pain's trademark auto-tune warble machine. "Migrate" kicks off E=MC, Carey's 11th album, and you could call it a symbolic moment: the final taming of...
