    Snow Patrol - Awaiting the avalanche

    Neither a critic's band nor a super-popular radio sensation, Gary Lightbody's Glasgow group was, once upon a time, just a struggling indie-rock outfit, more Belle & Sebastian insular than Coldplay make-out music. By the time their breakthrough record...

    Movement Mondays - Is this going to be on the vinyl?

    The hipster headquarters known as Glam, 3174 East Indian School Road, isn't just a hotspot for seeing faux-hawked emo kids making out with chicks wearing American Apparel on a glowing, multicolored dance floor straight outta Saturday Night Fever. The...

    Blacc Hitla? Whateva!

    I'm trying to count the ways that local Westside rapper Cballa annoys the shit out of me. Let's start with calling your record Blacc Hitla. Because I'm a writer and by proxy an aspiring grammarian, the misspelling bothers the shit out of me. Now, I u...

    It's Not, but It Oughtta Be

    The other afternoon I was sitting in one of my local watering holes and the B-52's "Rock Lobster" came on the satellite radio. I had to walk outside; that song and its ilk turn my stomach and make me puke a little bit in my mouth. Seems like I though...

    Philanthropy vs. Marketing

    Just received a CD and e-mails from the local band Smokescreen, and I'm torn between two opinions about its marketing strategy. I like the band; it sounds like lush late-'90s alt-rock in the vein of Radiohead or the Pumpkins, but not too clone-esque....

    Eyes on the Prize - Bid for the big time

    In a time when the opportunity for unsigned musicians to jump-start careers via MySpace seems already to have come and gone, the steadily building success of Tempe's Eyes Set To Kill is both encouraging and confounding. Since posting a profile on...

    Covet Thy Neighbor - Fashion and action

    Yes! Finally, Club Candids punked out on the weekend circuit and cruised to Covet Boutique in Scottsdale on Wednesday, June 27, for its in-store party. (Click here for more photos.) The spot was super chi-chi but with a hipster indie vibe. Kids sippe...

    The Kenny Conspiracy - Mister Rogers' Area 51

    The Sopranos blackout, Paul McCartney's bare feet on the cover of Abbey Road, the vast number of sharpshooters hidden in the shadows of Dealey Plaza, and the inexplicable public fascination with Paris Hilton. America wrestles with these enigmas, seek...

    Haven James - Rusty's Waltz (Self-released)

    Based on the CD Rusty's Waltz, it's hard to tell where Jen Powelson stops and the band Haven James starts, meaning that while there is some additional instrumentation on the disc tiny doses of fiddle, mandolin, cello, and some very Mark Knopfler-es...

    The Sonic Thrills - Get Up! (Truxton Records)

    A hot, fat bucket of garage, '60s soul, and rock rock rock 'n' roll that tantalizes the jaded tongue with potent drops of the Kinks, the Detroit Cobras, and the Sonics that's right, the Sonics (why yes, it is a strangely similar name). The suavo-se...

    Son de la Frontera - Cal (World Village Records)

    Think of the music played by Spain's Son de la Frontera as pure acoustic music that does not rely on any studio gimmicks. The five-piece group from Morn de la Frontera has a sound marked by the presence of the trs (a three-stringed instrument commo...

    The White Stripes - Icky Thump (Warner Bros./WEA)

    While absorbing the Blueshammer ersatz and pheromone-scented metallurgy of Icky Thump, the White Stripes' sixth record, it's hard not to long for the candy-striped sibs who once sat in that little room, working on something good. Remember them? Way b...

    Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight (Warner Bros./WEA)

    The men of Linkin Park seem awfully insecure. Minutes to Midnight is stuffed with take-us-seriously gestures, including the presence of producer Rick Rubin and liner notes that couldn't be needier if they'd been written by Sally Field. For instance,...

    Fountains of Wayne - Traffic and Weather (Virgin Records)

    It's been four years since Fountains of Wayne's last studio album, but the wait has been more than worth it, because FOW produces incredibly well-constructed pop. Besides a gift for hummable melodies, the group's bite-size vignettes of middle-class a...

    W.O.M.B. - New baby alert

    W.O.M.B. has always been difficult to define. Ever since the Valley band's debut LP, 1999's Warriors of Make Believe, the group has been producing thematically diverse music that ranges from the playful and poppy to the haunting and experimental. Now...

    Nick Nicholson - Country for country

    There's nothing "alt" about the country music played by Phoenix resident Nick Nicholson. The Tennessee transplant plays straight up, rockin' country, a combination of twang and bang influenced by the likes of Conway Twitty and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Nichols...

    TrEmUlaNtS - What they love

    Music that bears the most repeated listenings hits you on an abstract, moth-to-a-naked-light bulb level. The attraction may be lyrical ambiguity, sonic submersion, a spirited count-off or just the decibel ring of a voice around the circumference of y...

    Guy Forsyth - Peripatetic picker

    By all accounts, the live shtick of this experienced Austin roots rock veteran is designed to astound and flatten. A qualified, working Joe-type Renaissance man, Guy Forsyth sings, dances, slings an ax, waxes deadly with a harp, and even wields the o...
