    Weezer - Weezer (DGC/Interscope)

    Over the years, reviewers aplenty have wished for Weezer's Rivers Cuomo to grow up. But when he's occasionally tried to do so, the results have served as an argument for endless adolescence -- at least until now. The group's latest self-titled releas...

    The Beautiful Bodies - Touch Me (self-released)

    The Beautiful Bodies' debut, Touch Me, is an awkward and only occasionally rewarding combination of pale Yeah Yeah Yeahs mimickry and roaring classic rock. It's as if Karen O hijacked Rush before either party was fully formed. Bodies frontwoman Alici...

    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...
