  • Ten reasons Graham Nash deserves to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . . . again


    Ten reasons Graham Nash deserves to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame . . . again

    Down the list of least needy causes, it's just below a man standing next to his Hummer bumming for gas. But any true lover of melodic pop music oughta sign a petition to get Graham Nash inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. What's that, you ...

    James Fella - Salvaged Tapes (C-Salt/Gilgongo Records)

    Patchwork tapestries glued together from trash, cityscapes made out of discarded glass bottles, and junk mail assembled into fancy wall collages are just some of the scavenger exhibits you may find at your local contemporary art gallery. While it's ...

    The Brazen Heads - Who's Yer Paddy? (self-released)

    Fans of Irish folk-rock like Flogging Molly will go Paddy-batty for this local release, which blends traditional tunes like "Hag at the Churn" and "One Eyed Reilly" with spirited, fiddle-driven originals like the snarky title track (where guitarist/...

    Girl Named Kyle - Let's Build (Invicta Records)

    No, the world hasn't been waiting for another folkish band fronted by a precocious, big-voiced singer, and the familiar nature of the strummier material on Let's Build doesn't help separate Girl Named Kyle from the pack. Take the concluding "Epar," ...

    Frightened Rabbit

    On "I Feel Better," the second track off Frightened Rabbit's breakup diary The Midnight Organ Fight, frontman Scott Hutchison proclaims, "This is the last song I'll write about you." If only. It's these moments of false affirmation and agonizing sel...

    Cyndi Lauper

    Cyndi Lauper's crazy hair, outrageous clothes, and Noo Yawk accent pegged her as a patron saint of goofballs, thrift-store queens, and misfits in the 1980s. But underneath her "she's so unuuuuusual!" exterior lurks an understated pop balladeer and u...

    Greeley Estates

    The third album is the one fans generally have to worry about. It's usually the one in which a band has exhausted its supply of genuinely inspired musical ideas and now has to come up with brilliance on the fly. It has to point to some fearless new d...

    Meet JerkRag, the Valleys Rock Band band

    The members of JerkRag are having something of a shitty night. It's an unseasonably rain-drenched evening in May, and the setup for their third-ever gig has been marred by endless difficulties, including missing equipment and soundboard snafus. T...

    Noise Boy finds his musical twin in Carillons Eric Graf

    On a recent Wednesday afternoon, I stood in the garage of a Paradise Valley home, surrounded by carillons, chromatic bell instruments that had their heyday in the 1700s. The antiquated, Dutch contraptions -- which sound like clinking church bells...

    Five Songs About ... Thanksgiving

    Compared with other holidays, Thanksgiving hasn't inspired bards overmuch. There are no traditional hymns, no instantly identifiable music associated with the day save possibly various football broadcast bumpers. Nevertheless, here and there we fin...

    Zachary James Dodds - One More Life (Self-released)

    Zachary James Dodds sounds too world-weary to be just 22 years old. On his debut five-song EP, Dodds, who also plays guitar for local folkies the Via Maris, spins vivid tales -- both real and imagined -- that would seem to belie his age. Behind spars...

    Portishead - Third (Mercury)

    In 1997, when Portishead's self-titled second album arrived, the group's sound was routinely described as trip-hop. Eleven years later, that term is as dead as Fatty Arbuckle, but Portishead is alive again and more captivatingly obtuse than ever. "I ...

    Digital Leather - Sorcerer (Goner Records)

    The dark electro-musings of Tucson artist Shawn Foree (a.k.a. Digital Leather) have never sounded more spastic, insidious, and danceable than on Sorcerer. This 12-track album blends quirky art-pop influences like Devo, Plastic Bertrand, and Tubeway A...

    Daughters, and Russian Circles

    Any band that puts out an 11-minute recording and presents it as a full-length album obviously has a sense of humor. Like Slayer's shorty classic Reign in Blood (which is twice as long!) and Napalm Death's Scum before it, Daughters' Canada Songs is a...

    The only way to experience a group this vast, colorful, and earthbound is to simply just listen. An excessive use of adjectives seems unjust. Faun Fables and its creator, Dawn McCarthy, seamlessly draw from a spiritual and mythological realm to conve...
