    Various Artists - Strip Jointz: Hot Songs for Sexy Dancers (Robbins Ent. LLC)

    All 16 of the stripper anthems here are old school, from the obvious (Rick James' "Superfreak," the Commodores' "Brick House") to the almost hilarious, like Samantha Fox's "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)," and Clarence Carter's "Strokin'." Aside from th...

    French Quarter - S/T (Gilgongo Records)

    One problem with the popular singer-songwriter genre is an egocentric focus on storytelling elements that feel a bit too sophisticated. Unfortunately, this lack of connection with the listener normally equals a disposable product rather than a timele...

    Various Local Artists - Thoughts Become Things (www.staticmanagementonline.com)

    This compilation easily could serve as a "Greatest Hits" of the Phoenix indie-rock scene. The CD opens with "Various Kitchen Utensils" by Skybox, a band that relocated to Chicago a couple years ago but whom we still claim as our own because their bra...

    USSA - The Spoils (Fuzz Artists)

    With song titles such as "Dead Voices," "Cruel Beauty," and "Forget Yourself," it's a sure bet the USSA debut disc isn't going to be tagged power-pop or Americana. With members including Paul Barker of Ministry and Duane Denison of Jesus Lizard (and ...

    Joni Mitchell - Shine (Hear Music)

    There's gotta be something in the coffee at Hear Music. Not only did they snatch Paul McCartney away from a 40-plus-year relationship with EMI, but they also got the elusive (and often reclusive) Joni Mitchell to go back into the recording studio nin...

    Gojira

    The main difference between all the "Earth-friendly" artists that jumped on the Live Earth bandwagon (or flew to the concerts on fuel-guzzling private jets, in the case of the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers) and French death-metal band Gojira...

    Guitar Shorty

    He played with some of the best when he was just 17: Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Otis Rush, B.B. King and T-Bone Walker. Guitar Shorty (born David Kearney) credits the flamboyant Guitar Slim with inspiring him to incorporate somersaults and flips into hi...

    Phosphorescent

    Hold a Will Oldham look-alike contest, and Alabama native Matthew Houck might just win it (not that you could tell from his severely backlit Pride album cover). And like Oldham's former Palace Music collective, Phosphorescent is pretty much Houck and...

    Georgie James

    For an indie-pop group, Georgie James has had a rapid ascent, and they deserve it. Former Q and Not U drummer John Davis put his head together with the band's other primary member, fellow Washington, D.C., songwriter Laura Burhenn, in 2005. Before lo...

    Some R&R

    I still have a headache from visiting R&R Stix in East Mesa. I usually wait a couple of days after I hit a bar to review it (mostly to rid myself of the hangover), but I can't wait to get this place down on paper. I'm feeling like hell, my stomach ac...

    Just For Fun

    Mr. Marshall "fucking" Beck, "the most controversial motherfucker in the Arizona music scene" thought it'd be funny to print my home phone number and address up in this piece; which he can certainly do on Myspace, but not here, where I moderate what ...

    St. Patrick's Day Massacre

    Luckily, I saw Jared from the Liar's Handshake last night and we concocted a plan where I'd shadow the band throughout its three-show day, watching to see if they can manage to stay sober enough to make it to the third show. There's a Liar's Handshak...

    Last Words for Marshall

    The Marshall Beck "Mr. Controversial" debate continues to rage on Ear Infection, thanks in great part to his admittedly posting Myspace bulletins to his 45,000 friends. (PEN15 wrote "I WISH THIS WOULD STOP SO I DONT HAVE TO SEE 26 MYSPACE POSTS A DAY...

    The Good and the Not So Good

    Due to space limitations in the print version of New Times, there are a lot of local records that we can't fit into the music section. That's why here, on Ear Infection, I try to turn you on or steer you away from certain acts and albums. The lates...

    Peel It Up - Memoir of a radio hero

    Were you one of the thousands of hopefuls who submitted demo tapes to BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel? Perhaps he didn't play it, let alone include it on his annual Festive 50 list. But consider this: Did you describe your music as "jazz"? Boast about your ...

    Witchcraft - The Alchemist (Rise Above)

    This CD sounds like sitting in the back of a 1976 Dodge van, surrounded by blacklight posters, clouds of incense smoke, and stacks of 8-tracks. Musically, it's like some time-warped orgy of Cream, Black Sabbath, and Electric Light Orchestra; lyricall...
