    Hushed Heroes - Speaking of snake-eyes . . .

    Not all music interviews aspire to get at the pith of an artist or band's identity, or to say anything all that insightful about them. No, sometimes interviews exist just as a means to give an artist a chance to voice a bit of his or her personality...

    Yourchestra - Sparkel, Sammy (self-released)

    For simplicity's sake, there are two cornerstones to Yourchestra's sound: old-timey, '20s-era jug band sounds and psychedelic freakout. Now, attempt to sonically bridge the gap between these two ridiculously disparate elements, and you're close to i...

    Psychostick - The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride (Rock Ridge Music)

    If you're as sick as we are of hearing trite, toe-the-line renditions of holiday classics on throwaway compilations put out solely to feed the commercialization of Christmas, then Psychostick's Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride may be just th...

    Kid Rock - Rock 'N' Roll Jesus (Atlantic)

    It's lucky for Kid Rock that he's an egomaniacal dipshit, because otherwise, his music would be about as memorable as a Molly Hatchet eight-track sans "Flirting With Disaster." Still, the former Mr. Pamela Anderson's good-humored salutes to his own ...

    Phoenix Symphony Orchestra

    Psychedelic music -- sounds to evoke or accompany chemically enhanced/altered states of imagination/perception -- existed long before Syd Barrett or John Lennon dropped their first tab of "sunshine" in the 1960s. In 1830, prompted by the double-whamm...

    Travis

    Jason Ricci & New Blood

    In the fast-and-loose world of alt-journalism, filled with clever quips and erudite observations, it'd be all too easy to make some sort of salacious wordplay out of that fact that harmonica-playing blues savant Jason Ricci is openly gay (and likely ...

    Twisted the Night Away - From dining to dancing

    Lucky 13

    Ohh yeah, the ol' Friday the 13th barrage of shows has arrived, as you can see above. Rather than reiterating what the flyers above let you know, I'll just say that I wouldn't recommend the HellHouse show, but I will recommend one that I can't find a...

    Well, Elliott Smith's not with us in the physical world any longer, but, especially for those of us who got to know him at least briefly, he's still living in his beautiful songs, a double-CD of which is being released in a few weeks on May 8 (which...

    Hot Shit

    If you're anything like me, you've got absolutely no use for the mall-punk-distillery that is Hot Topic. It might be alright for the high school kids who need a leather-studded punk rock belt or a t-shirt of the The Used (eccchh!), but Hot Topic is ...

    Who's A-Frayed?

    I wasn't a fan of the band The Fray previously; definitely not enough to attend the has-been-celebration that was called the Tempe Music Festival a couple weekends back. I don't remember all of the acts that were playing, but I know that The Fray wa...
