    Queer Eye - Miffing accomplished

    For nearly 20 years, the Queers have made a crude pop art of thrashing through their most infectious songs with the reckless abandon of a hardcore band a really funny hardcore band that worships the Ramones and The Beach Boys. They actually cover t...

    Poppy Hybrids - Annuals sound stems from Brian Wilson, Brad Paisley, and "big-ass dogs"

    "I thought it was garbage," says guitarist Kenny Florence, recalling the first time singer/songwriter Adam Baker let him hear the new songs he'd been writing as Annuals. "The first few songs, I really didn't like. And he'll admit to you that they'...

    Kittie - Funeral for Yesterday (X of Infamy)

    As much as Kittie benefited from the late-'90s n-metal explosion, they were always one smart step removed from it: From the scrappy, Hole-via-Cannibal Corpse death-grunge of 1999's Spit, to the Pantera-style bludgeoning of 2001's Oracle, to the fine...

    Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (Merge)

    Arcade Fire's Neon Bible is a dense, academic, and ultimately rewarding album fixated on questions of spirituality, religion and the concept of self and, more specifically, how to reconcile these things in a bleak world where uncertainty is the nor...

    Fall Out Boy - Infinity on High (Island)

    Although Fall Out Boy lyricist/dreamboat Pete Wentz is inveterately verbose, his words don't mask profundity, and that's a big reason for his band's success. A lot of emo acts have a limited audience because of all that freakin' emotion. But instead ...

    Ed Petterson - The New Punk Blues of Ed Petterson (Split Rock Records)

    Petterson was born in New York City but lives in Nashville. He's not a punk, nor is his music bluesy, so the title of the CD is puzzling. Maybe he's just venting some leftover NYC attitude. Petterson's music is folky, funky and country, with a skewed...

    Trans Am - Sex Change (Thrill Jockey)

    Sex Change starts off re-exploring Trans Am's journeys on the Autobahn, as the echo of Afrobeat guitars washes over the lull of a trance-inducing synth riff. But they move on quickly while keeping the synth front and center on "North East Rising Sun,...

    Lucinda Williams - West (Lost Highway)

    Well, Lucinda Williams' first release in four years won't be making many people's lists of Least Depressing Albums of 2007. Someone took her joy again. And this time, there's no sign that joy is coming back, as Williams struggles through the heartach...

    Moneen - Six stars out of five

    Alternative Press included Moneen's latest effort, The Red Tree, on its "10 Essential Albums of 2006" list, and went on to say that if you'd give your favorite record of the year five stars, The Red Tree would get six. Now, chances are, you're thinki...

    Naked Aggression - Cheeseheads for peace

    Few hard-edged punk bands were as blatantly pissed off about politics in the '90s than Naked Aggression. Formed in 1990 by singer Kirsten Patches and guitarist Phil Suchomel among the breweries and cheese factories of Madison, Wisconsin, Naked Aggres...

    Winger - Kipping it real

    After scoring two platinum albums and one massive hair-metal anthem (that ode to statutory rape titled "Seventeen"), Winger officially crashed and burned with the commercial failure of 1993's Pull. And while most rock fans had written off the band, w...

    Deerhoof

    See ya never, Blonde Redhead! The top spot for bands made up of one sprightly Asian singer plus two experimentally oriented white guys has been usurped by Northern California spazzers Deerhoof. Last year was Deerhoof's year. Finally, plenty of show-g...
