    Beat-ing Off

    Local producer Aaron Roberts released a tricky little EP of booty shaking house beats called Hip-Hop Stop on Nashville label Photo Records this week. The "hip-hop" reference is deceiving - this is bass-heavy house with chopped-up vocals and dancefloo...

    Morning Wormwood

    This local self-described "dustcore" outfit called Wormwood Brothers sent me a beautiful little track called "Trigger Happy" that reminds me of shoegazers with a taste for y'all-ternative bands like Wilco, Son Volt, and their ilk. It's pretty fucking...

    Weirdo Update

    "Two piece, bass and drums. So as long as our weight holds constant we keep a balance. Usually the best sounds, ideas and songs come from bands who just started so hence we force ourselves to forget any advancement. The world needs another Joplin bi...

    Music Journalist SMACKDOWN!

    There was a little e-mail scuffle between an L.A. Times writer named Chris Lee and myself recently, when I wrote a column refuting his assertion that local white rapper trio Woodpile are white supremacists (he wrote that in a front page story for the...

    Is Z Trippin'?

    Phoenician ex-patriate and now Los Angelian DJ Z-Trip, who I've toured through the Pacific Northwest with before and is currently hitting up European dance floors, has been pretty damn busy lately, getting married in this summer and posting some new ...

    Says Who??

    I'm sure you're all aware that tomorrow is election day, which I wouldn't ordinarily type about up in this piece, but it's made for some strange endorsements this year. Check out the video here, and you'll see local music scene players like Jim Adkin...

    The Price of Payola - Someone's listening after all

    Do you want what's in the box or what's behind door No. 3? The latest episode in the radio payola version of Let's Make a Deal is looking like a zonk. Then again, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's heroic crusade against payola netting more ...

    Milling Around - Avenue attitude

    Even if the night hadn't ended with whip-its and Adult Mad-Libs, my recent Saturday night excursion onto Mill Avenue in Tempe would still be among my most fun forays into Valley nightlife ever. It was a pleasant surprise, because I don't usually hang...

    Amy Winehouse - Back to Black (Universal Republic)

    UK chanteuse Amy Winehouse is quickly becoming known for two things: her drinking habit and her amazing voice. She combines the two on "Rehab," the opening song on her second album, Back to Black, in which she sings, "They tried to make me go to reha...

    Grindhouse Grooves - Tracking soundtrack tracks

    Directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez know a thing or two about music and the movies. Tarantino's soundtracks have become pop-culture staples, while Rodriguez scores his own movies. We sat down with them recently to discuss their new doubl...

    Prayer of The Mullet - Make it quick and painless -- but not short

    Dear Gods of Rock: It's me, The Mullet. Please kill me. My time on this Earth hanging off Richard Marx's head as it sang "Don't Mean Nothin'," going to Indigo Girls shows, and bathing in NASCAR exhaust fumes has been fun, but I just can't take...

    Do Your Taxes Like a Rock Star - This is no substitute for professional financial advice

    If national elections are the government's way of dicking you over every four years, Tax Day is its way of making sure you don't forget who has the biggest dick every year. Of course, if you're a musician especially if you're a rock star and, t...

    The Iris - The Vanity Fair (www.the-iris.com)

    The new CD by local industrial metal band The Iris sounds like a sonic blueprint for a band that's finding its sound, and getting hotter by the minute. But the blueprint isn't new Marilyn Manson, Deftones, and a dozen other bands drew it. What's gr...

    Tom Baker Quartet - Look What I Found (Present Sounds Recordings)

    In a progressive jazz culture dominated by New York and Chicago, other towns with improvised music scenes tend to get the shaft. That's too bad, because pockets of experimental sounds from Santa Cruz, California, to Montague, Massachusetts contin...

    Hella - Have to kiss a lot of prog

    It's funny how trends turn in terms of the cool becoming pass and the unspeakably lame becoming "the shit." For first-wave punks, guitar solos were as voguish as a Three's Company T-shirt; the ascendance of Meat Puppets and Dinosaur Jr. made nimble-...

    Street to Nowhere - Come and listen to their story

    Though there is no shortage of young, angst-ridden musicians with angst-ridden tales to tell, ultimately, the power of a story is in its telling a notion that puts Dave Smallen, the brains and emotion behind Oakland's Street to Nowhere, at the top ...

    ZZ Top - Well worth the parking

    Yes, it's been too long since ZZ Top has made a song half as brilliant as "La Grange" or "Tube Snake Boogie." But if classic rock has taught us anything, and we both know it has, it's that it doesn't matter if an old band's new stuff isn't fit to sha...
