    Tayo - Fabriclive.32 (Fabric)

    With a hard mash of breaks, dubstep, and anything else that buzzes and beckons asses to the dance floor, Tayo's Fabriclive.32 mix packs consistent, convulsive shudders. The South London producer spotlights his neighbors when a handful of dubstep VIPs...

    Swati - Small Gods (Bluhammock)

    Swati, a thirtysomething lesbian from Manhattan, is a powerful singer/songwriter, but her amazing guitar technique is winning her as many critical raves as her songs. Her 12-string guitar has been restrung as an 8-string with doubled B and high E str...

    Junior Brown - Leave your emo on the doorstep

    Musicians who invent stuff are way cool. There's Boston's Tom Scholz, who developed the hugely popular Rockman headphone amplifier; New Orleans soul-punker Quintron and his bizarro, light-activated Drum Buddy; and, of course, Junior Brown, who, two d...

    Lucinda Williams - Haunt got that swing

    The most powerful introduction to Lucinda Williams' new record, West, comes not from the languid, repetitive opener "Are You Alright?" but from the liner-note inscription by her poet father, Miller Williams: "You do not know what wars are going on d...

    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Nailed it

    Apparently, breaking up helped Black Rebel Motorcyle Club more than it hurt. After losing drummer Nick Jago, remaining members Peter Hayes and Robert Been took an abrupt, well-received detour into acoustic-based folk on 2005's Howl, which soon led to...

    Ozomatli - Fries with that shake

    Reflecting the urban polyglot of its Los Angeles home, Ozomatli purveys a Latin dance party fueled by horns and covering a seamless expanse of hip-hop, jazz, rock, funk, and salsa. The vibrant sound is impressive live, and the band won a Grammy for i...

    Bright Eyes - But you knew that already

    Bright Eyes' latest effort, Cassadaga, takes its name from a psychic community. The first voice you hear as the orchestra makes like "Revolution 9" is a clairvoyant going on about centers of energy, and there are references to cleansing and communing...

    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...

    Killer Kids

    The three-girl, three-boy young'uns (the age range is 17-20) in Eyes Set to Kill are having quite a year. The screamo outfit released a well-received EP earlier in '06 and just recently dropped a DVD with eight songs performed live. Better yet, they'...

    Annals of Mediocrity

    Poorly written, silly-ass press releases are one of the humorous perks of this job; the flipside is when you have to actually listen to the CDs that they come with. Exhibit A: local female-fronted trio Niki Kwik's upcoming EP, No Need to Apologize. H...

    BFH Out...

    Word came to me recently that local lap-guitar troubadour Brodie Hubbard (aka Brodie Foster Hubbard, aka Brodie Fucking Hubbard) is leaving the 'Nix soon to head back to La-La Land. That's a loss for the singer-songwriter set here; as I wrote earlier...

    Hookers and Blow

    I know what you're thinking, but no, this isn't a recap of how I spent the weekend. It's almost the holidays so I had to forego the hookers this time around. Rather, this post is marking a milestone of sorts for Radio Free America, soon to be known a...

    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...
