    Post-Birthday Getdown with Bright Eyes

    Yesterday was yours truly's birthday, so it almost seems like a late present that one of my favorite bands, Bright Eyes, is playing tonight at the Marquee. I'll be there to rock; meanwhile, this is one of their dopest videos (and birthday related)......

    An Emotional Response

    I mentioned earlier today that I at first suspected What Laura Says Thinks and Feels was an emo band because of the name (I was wrong on that one). Then I was working on a column that references North Side Kings, and I remembered this video from a wh...

    Annals of Bad Band Names

    Perhaps it's unfair to pick on bands for choosing silly names (like I did with the boys in An Aesthetic here a while back), but sometimes the words just beg for it. Like with What Laura Says Thinks and Feels, which I assumed was an emo band (because...

    Holiday Smear - Santa and sangria at Retro Redux

    Christmas cheer can be found in the oddest of places. We stumbled upon it in the midst of clothing and knick-knacks (most likely acquired from the dead) at Retro Redux's Kitschy Christmas Party on Saturday, December 8. As with any vintage clothing an...

    Body of Scars - Body of Scars (www.bodyofscars.com)

    There's nothing new going on here, just straight-up, raging metal. We didn't bother to read Body of Scars' list of influences (if they have one), because we can clearly hear them. The dual guitars churn out the high-pitched, racing-scale solos master...

    Stanley Clarke - The Toys of Men (Heads Up)

    There can be little question that Stanley Clarke is one of the greatest jazz-fusion bassists alive today. He continues to make inspirational work both live and in the studio, as heard on this new disc. He opens the proceedings with the four-part suit...

    Wu-Tang Clan - 8 Diagrams (Motown/Universal)

    Wu-Tang Clan's fifth album comes at a time of strife within the group. Ghostface Killah and Raekwon have laid into Wu ringleader and beat maker RZA for the album's creative direction. Calling Wu a sinking ship and RZA a "hip-hop hippie," Raekwon says...

    Nappy Brown - Long Time Coming (Blind Pig)

    In the 1950s, along with Ray Charles, singer Napoleon "Nappy" Brown was one of the transitional performers between blues and rhythm & blues (the latter in the '60s transmuted to "soul music"). Proceeding from a blues foundation, Brown worked gospel, ...

    Eagles Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit may all love music, but they don't make it collectively unless there's a mammoth payday involved. Maybe that's why this set, which is being released through a profit-maximizing deal with...

    Hughes Your Daddy? - The Breakup Society recalls teen movie angst
