    Georgie James - Places (Saddle Creek)

    Georgie James is a duo specifically, the pairing of John Davis and Laura Burheim. Like The Turtles, they are so happy together, or at least it sounds so. Each of the 12 tunes here draws from the peak pop music of yesteryear, when cheerful songs lik...

    The Premiere - London Paris New York (self-released/thepremieremusic.com)

    Phoenix has a hot hip-hop scene, so to say that The Premiere's debut album is the best new local CD to hit P-city streets this year is really saying something. And we are saying just that. Three years in the making, London Paris New York is a monster...

    Greyhound Soul - Tonight and Every Night (re-silence Records)

    Tucson's Greyhound Soul blends rough vocals, country twang, and straight-ahead rock with a twist of the blues. It's like hearing the child of Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Hans Olson, the Pistoleros, and one of the small, unknown band...

    Underoath

    Jorma Kaukonen

    For good or ill (usually the latter, alas), some associations haunt performers for their entire careers. Del Shannon became synonymous with his biggest hit, "Runaway," and was typecast as an "oldies act." Stevie Nicks will forever conjure visions of ...

    Last Chance Thursday

    It doesn't get any more old school than C.L. McSpadden. In fact, the 36-year-old DJ extraordinaire has been working the wheels of steel since the late '80s (long before some of y'all even knew what EDM was) at bygone Valley hotspots like Club Freedom...

    Cashed

    I'm standing in front of Cash Inn Country on 21st and McDowell, and I'm frightened. I'm scared for several reasons: 1) It's a lesbian bar; 2) I'm wearing a Metallica Kill 'Em All T-shirt; 3) it's a country joint. I use a lifeline and text a girlf...

    Blacc Hitla? Whateva!

    I'm trying to count the ways that local Westside rapper Cballa annoys the shit out of me. Let's start with calling your record Blacc Hitla. Because I'm a writer and by proxy an aspiring grammarian, the misspelling bothers the shit out of me. Now, I u...

    It's Not, but It Oughtta Be

    The other afternoon I was sitting in one of my local watering holes and the B-52's "Rock Lobster" came on the satellite radio. I had to walk outside; that song and its ilk turn my stomach and make me puke a little bit in my mouth. Seems like I though...

    Attitude Adjusting - Playing "straight to the middle"

    One of Jim Louvau's favorite talking points when making a case for his new band The Attitude is the void to be filled because there are no more new rock stars. And he's right. If you want cocksure swagger and violence, rappers have that segment fully...

    Not Dead - Riverboat Gamblers frontman Mike Wiebe counts his blessings

    Whatever animates Riverboat Gamblers lead singer Mike Wiebe, the audience is giving him a wide berth lest it prove contagious. Dragging the mic cord like a lifeline, Wiebe climbs on tables, mounts structural supports, and hangs from exposed pipes w...
