    Don't Sweat It - Summer night on Grand Avenue

    As much as we hit up the downtown scene, it wasn't until this past weekend that we finally got around to seeing Andrew Jackson Jihad play live (shameful, eh?) at one of our favorite venues, The Trunk Space, for their CD-release party on Friday, Augus...

    Duozona - Colors: Duozona Plays Music for Flute and Guitar (Emeritus Recordings)

    Some classical music sounds heavier than rock music, particularly huge orchestral and operatic arrangements like Wagner's Die Walkre and the Symphonic Dances of Rachmaninoff. Explosive compositions like those often bring to mind images of deranged c...

    Various Artists - Vee-Jay: The Definitive Collection (Shout Factory)

    There were a lot of great independent labels that flourished in the '50s and early '60s, and each owns a place in the stars Chess, Sun, Atlantic, Motown, Stax. It was a movement, a golden age for music geared toward a new teen demographic. Maybe it...

    John Vanderslice, and The Bowerbirds - Tasty bites

    John Vanderslice is a generally unnoted musical impresario whose versatility, talent, and intelligence make it seemingly impossible for him to achieve the success he truly deserves though stranger things have happened. His impeccably crafted pop fl...

    Kings of Leon - Modern royalty

    We found this blurb on Yahoo!, describing the Kings of Leon's official Web site: "Rock band from Tennessee whose songs teem with primal emotions and rangy rhythms." First off, somebody from the Kings' camp wrote this. Second, somebody in the Kings' c...

    CSI: Scottsdale - One word: gloves

    Like a Car Accident

    Admittedly it's a slow blog day when I have to resort to putting absolutely horrible spectacles up on here, but this is so bad, it's... just fucking bad. No, the band Lordi isn't local (Daggrr from Army of Robots hit me up with this), they're Finnish...

    More Peachiness

    Let Them Eat Peachcake

    2007 has gotten off to a relatively slow start. We've been home now since the beginning of December, meandering through the holidays, amongst the family bruhaha, and though it's been nice, and a bit of some needed downtime, or a necessary "break" in ...

    Joking Off - Andrew Jackson Jihad brings serious sing-along

    Guitarist Sean Bonnette is playing his acoustic ax like a troubadour on crank. The 21-year-old scruffy-haired musician is a supernova of manic energy, ripping vicious riffs onstage at the Trunk Space in downtown Phoenix as the frontman for folk-p...

    Childish Ambitions - Rarer than a good mechanic

    To some, Billy Childish will come off as a crank. He's outspoken and has little patience for authority or institutions. It's the reason he was kicked out of St. Martin's School of Art in England when he was 16. You might call him a primitivist for...

    Patti Smith - Twelve (Sony)

    A snotty music critic's hypothesis: No relevant artist releases a covers album. Several supporting examples have dropped in 2007 alone, and we'll get to those in a minute. Contrary evidence is scarce, but Exhibit A for the defense is Patti Smith's Tw...
