    For ska-punk survivor Less Than Jake, self-sufficiency and longevity go hand in hand

    "The music industry," declares Less than Jake drummer and lyricist Vinnie Fiorello, "is pointing toward bands becoming their own cottage industry. Which means bands being in charge of their own merch, distribution of records, and production of record...

    Treasure Mammal/Whitman - Split 7-inch (Tiny Panda Records)

    If you have wanted to check out Phoenix-based Treasure Mammal, but aren't ready for one of his longer efforts, listening to this 7-inch is the perfect way to ease yourself into his unique (if not slightly disturbed) sonic art. "Ain't No Shame in My G...

    Fracture Point - Inherit the Downfall (self-released)

    Phoenix metal band Fracture Point sounds like a mastodon stampede, but instead of directionless destruction, this beast intelligently winds its way through a well-constructed maze of down-tuned guitars, burly bass lines, screaming solos, and tricky t...

    Three 6 Mafia - Last 2 Walk (Sony)

    When the members of Three 6 Mafia won a 2006 Best Song Oscar for "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp," from Hustle & Flow, they reacted with so much exuberance that they made Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Jerry Maguire acceptance speech seem restrained by comparison...

    Steely Dan

    While parents have predictably freaked out over the social menace imposed by the blues, jazz, secular R&B, rock 'n' roll, heavy metal, rap, and techno, they never seemed to bat an eyelash over Steely Dan. In fact, they seemed to dig the band more th...

    Cute Is What We Aim For

    Cute Is What We Aim For is likely the perfect 21st-century pop band. Almost purpose-built for short-attention-span marketing campaigns, the four gents in CIWWAF focus so heavily on pop sheen, hooks, and scenester touchstones that it's often difficult...

    Ear Candy: A Taste of Christmas Pudding

    By Niki D'Andrea Normally, I'm not a big fan of Christmas albums. I get stacks of them every year, and less than half of them actually make it into my CD player (really, I don't need to hear Josh Groban's take on "Little Drummer Boy" or James Taylor...
