    State of the (Punk) Union

    I'm trying to determine the current state of our community, and it's got me somewhat disappointed. In reflection on the last 5 years of AZPunk.com, there's no doubt to the great things that happen in our community. Unbreakable friendships have been f...

    Chip Again? Yeah, One More Song

    Above - Chippy's first drum set, 1971 Not to beat a dead country horse, but I was remiss yesterday in not mentioning that Chip Hanna, who I wrote about in my column Revolver this week, is playing at Mardi Gras tonight - the reason I mention this ...

    Bright Spots

    I'm a little bit shocked that my ol' homeboy Conor Oberst and his latest lineup for the ever-evolving Bright Eyes have actually debuted at #4 on the Billboard charts, despite remaining on Omaha's stalwart indie label Saddle Creek. The album, Cassada...

    Post-Turkey Papago - Libations and laziness

    It took us a couple of days before we dragged our bloated bellies out in public after stuffing ourselves on Thanksgiving. Instead of hitting a hotspot with expectations of beautiful faces and flat tummies, we decided to hit a casual favorite, Papago ...

    Psych 101 - Attachment Disorder (self-released)

    We need some Quaaludes. We can't stop listening to Phoenix rock trio Psych 101's Attachment Disorder, and it's totally messing with our heads. All of its danceable dirges are giving us delusions: that Joy Division brought Ian Curtis back from the de...

    The Kim Philbys - Whir Whir Whir (Evangeline)

    San Francisco trio The Kim Philbys has guts -- don't they realize bands these days are supposed to be predictable, either melodious or arty-abrasive, not both? In this manner, they recall (yet don't sound like) the Meat Puppets, who encompassed brut...

    Kevin Michael - Kevin Michael (Downtown/Atlantic)

    Muscles - Guns Babes Lemonade (Modular)

    It's hard to know when, or whether, the Australian one-man dance act known as Muscles is being serious. Live, ensconced behind a tower of keyboards and contraptions, he'll yell to his hipster crowd, "This is my trance song! Do you all like trance?!"...

    Vampire Weekend

    Music scribes can appreciate the smart-ass lyrics of Vampire Weekend's ber-groovy song "Oxford Comma," wherein singer and guitarist Ezra Koenig quips and croons, "Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?/I've seen those English dramas too-oo/They're...

    Will Hoge

    While Nashville's Will Hoge may lack the smooth soul grooves of the John Mayer Trio or the witty charm of Ben Lee's pop rock, Hoge's soulful voice and introspective lyrics will appeal to many of the same adult-alternative fans. To be certain, there ...
