    Dance Dance Evolution - Phoenix's rave scene pioneers find their groove again

    One of the mantras that emerged from the hippie counterculture movement of the '60s was "never trust anyone over 30." When you're young, idealistic, and wearing rose-colored raver sunglasses to protect your eyes from the early-morning sunrise assault...

    will.i.am - Songs About Girls (Interscope)

    Derivative, repetitive, insipid, insincere, and pandering, Songs About Girls also has the worst insert booklet in recent memory seven pages of will.i.am mugging in a checkered suit. The first song, "Over," a lover's lament featuring a sample from E...

    Hot Hot Heat - Happiness Ltd. (Reprise)

    The epic, soaring sonics on Happiness Ltd. , Hot Hot Heat's latest effort, owe a debt to some tricked-out production that results in a number of satisfying swells. The strongest candidates for airplay are front-loaded for instant gratification, while...

    Aesop Rock

    While putting together his latest verbose yet exhilarating album, None Shall Pass, Aesop Rock moved from New York to San Francisco, got married, quit smoking, and turned 30. So, it's not surprising that the record shows changes in his style; rather t...

    Martin Sexton

    Two things separate real musicians from wanna-bes the willingness to tour without quarter, and the head-down attitude to plow forward, faithful in one's abilities. Martin Sexton qualifies on both counts. He busked for the money to make his first al...

    Los Straitjackets

    Before those hand-holding mop-tops from Liverpool hit these shores, instrumental rock was extremely popular. The charts belonged to The Ventures, Dick Dale, Link Wray (big influence on The Who's Pete Townshend), and even Brits like the Shadows and To...

    The Vibrators

    Like their contemporaries in U.K. Subs, who lived in the same building, the seasoned pub musicians who formed the Vibrators in 1976 brought a blues tradition to the nascent punk scene. But while the scene was highly politicized and angry, the Vibes g...

    MODE Thursdays

    For most of the past decade, the record-rocking diva known as Sonique des Fleurs has been a mainstay of the Valley's EDM scene. Since debuting in 1999, the 30-year-old sultry spinstress has been a fixture at countless local raves, club nights, and DJ...

    Playa's Paradise

    We're just finishing up a nice dinner at Dick's Hideaway on a random Wednesday night when I hint at the urge to slum it for a few. Carla picks up on my slobbering (and the fact that I'm done paying $9 for a glass of wine). She says she has the perfec...

    Solo Survivor - One man, no van

    Shane Ocell has the biggest, hardest . . . callus I've ever seen. It's the size of a small marble, sitting on the knuckle of his right middle finger. He cultivated the knot through his unconventional drumming style holding the stick between h...

    Via Vengeance - Dieography (www.myspace.com/shadesofbloood)

    Via Vengeance's songs sound gritty, dense, and calculated. The rhythms are snappy and solid, with seamless, simple timing changes that often lead into even simpler guitar interludes, but show attention to composition nonetheless. Not that Via Vengean...

    Still the Circle K of record stores

    Sadly, things haven't changed much. Except for the fact that indie bastions Eastside Records and Stinkweeds have had to downsize -- Eastside cutting its store size in half, and Stinkweeds closing up its Tempe location. And Zia, it appears, has stayed...

    Apparently, Not Quite Dead, But...

    Sometimes some really weird shit comes across my desk, like this album, Remnants Resolved, by Skerlak Dead with four songs this Phoenix-based guy M. Skerlak recorded back in 1984, and two that he recorded in 1961. According to his myspace page, dude ...

    Anti-Authoritarian

    I happily admitted in a previous column that I was a fan of Authority Zero frontman Jason Devore's solo album, Conviction. But I also made it clear that I don't appreciate or understand AZ's music; I find it generic, formulaic, and oftentimes a bad b...

    Mean Streaker - Mondo crudo

    Queens of the Stone Age cofounder/former bassist and Mondo Generator leader Nick Oliveri likes to play concerts in the nude. But, as Oliveri can readily attest, his, shall we say, "naturalist" approach is not without its hazards. He very nearly lande...

    Farrell's Pet Cause - Not just cool Global Cool

    As he tries to launch a social movement that encourages people to address global warming and throw parties at the same time, Perry Farrell, usually chipper and optimistic in interviews, doesn't mince words about the gravity of the crisis the human ra...

    Foot Ox - self-titled (self-released)

    There's a reason the acoustic, singer-songwriter band Foot Ox has been dubbed "broken folk." Actually, there are more than a dozen instrumental reasons, as project frontman Teague Cullen not only wields a finely tuned guitar and a distinguishable set...

    Turbo Charged - The denim demons ride

    Like commandos descending from helicopters in the night, Turbonegro's boisterous irreverence lands just in time to deliver a pinprick of humor to puncture rock's ballooning self-importance. Theirs is a crowd-pleasing blow to the crotch of angst-ridde...
