    Slut Sister - Raw Meat (self-released)

    Given the band/album name and cover image, I half-expected this band to sound like either cheesy '80s cock-rock throwbacks or raucous hardcore punk. It's neither. Although the band describes its music as "metal/hardcore/Southern rock" on its MySpace ...

    Beck - Modern Guilt (Interscope Records)

    Danger Mouse is arguably the most adventurous producer to tackle a Beck project since the Dust Brothers helped birth a 1996 baby called Odelay (the Dusters' return for 2004's Gero doesn't count). The resulting sound is satisfyingly dense and intrica...

    Reggie and the Full Effect - Last Stop: Crappy Town (Vagrant Records)

    Wild rumors are standard-issue for the intentionally enigmatic Reggie and the Full Effect. But if the latest Internet scuttlebutt is true, Last Stop: Crappy Town is Kansas City native James Dewees' (meaning the entire band's) final album before he go...

    Journey - Revelation (Frontiers)

    The members of Journey must be feeling the band's name is more meaningful than ever these days. It's unlikely any band has a comeback as thoroughly modern and convoluted as these AOR mainstays, pulled back into public consciousness by HBO and YouTube...

    Bill Frisell

    When Coloradans talk about great musical artists with local roots, they seldom mention jazz guitarist Bill Frisell. Frankly, the omission is mystifying. Frisell has been releasing albums under his own name since 1984, and there's not a single embarra...

    Lyle Lovett

    While people have often picked on Lovett for his looks (they're just jealous they didn't have a brief marriage to Julia Roberts), you can't really argue with Lovett's merits as a performer -- the man's released 13 albums, won four Grammy Awards, and ...

    The Pig gets dirty at Palo Verde Lounge

    Being a booze pig, I pride myself on knowing the location of every dive bar in town. It gets a little more difficult when you are in the sixth-largest city in the country. Because our desert-gobbling sprawl is so huge, I often ask friends and stra...
