    Parenthetical Girls - (Men and) women on the dirge

    Calmness intercepts Zac Pennington's tortured timbre and nervous-breakdown-bordering subject matter when he croons tunes for the Parenthetical Girls, the indie pop ensemble that recently swiped Phoenician Edward Crichton of the recently disbanded and...

    The Besnard Lakes - Montreal in the family

    The Besnard Lakes are having a moment. The band is squinting into the icy Montreal sunshine now that they've been called up to the sonic front of croissant-crunching Canadian megabands. Long after (well, "long" in the sense of indie rock trends, whic...

    Page France - Pop, not corn

    Baltimore's Page France crafts music for hypothetical, as-yet-unwritten John Hughes films. This is indie pop anxious with hope and possibility, led by singer/guitarist Michael Nau, who sometimes aches with a little vocal quake, like Bright Eyes' Cono...

    Circa Survive - They drive it live

    For Philadelphia's Circa Survive, the live performance is often less about the band's obscenely compelling music and more about singer Anthony Green's intense charisma onstage. While the band's driving rock songs layered with urgent melodies and pr...

    Goldie - Tag, he's it

    Graf artist-DJs are some of the hippest hyphenates we got goin' on here in the PHX, with peeps like Wet Paint's Jesika Jordan and FreshOut-DaBox's T3PO tagging walls and tearing up turntables across the Valley. But back before these spray-painting sp...

    Bruised Cruise - That sinking feeling

    After last year's Rock N The Seas cruise from Los Angeles to Ensenada, which featured a shitload of booze consumption and music from a grip of Arizona bands like the Gin Blossoms, Dead Hot Workshop, Sand Rubies, Rich Hopkins, and Ghetto Cowgirl, I wa...

    To The Death - My Chemical Romance conceptualizes doom with Liza Minnelli

    The Black Parade had all the makings of a total drag. A concept album devoted to death? Yeah, those are always fun. But New Jersey rock darlings My Chemical Romance stared death in the face and decided to send out for Liza Minnelli, who sound...

    Real Swingers - No harm, no foul

    It's the bee's knees, daddy-o. I love to swing, but I can't dance. I can't swing dance, either. But here I am at a VFW hall on Thomas Road in central Phoenix on a Sunday evening, taking a swing dance lesson and getting ready for some move called "...

    Sister Act - Her and her against the world

    Meg & Dia, a four-piece power-pop outfit out of Utah, is bulwarked by a strong confessional singer-songwriter sensibility and fronted by sisters Meg (21, guitars and lyrics) and Dia (19, vocals) Frampton. In shorthand: They're everything Ashlee Simps...

    The Atomic Fireballs - Torch This Place (Lava/Atlantic)

    This Detroit band found some success in the swing revival of the late '90s, even though they were really an eight-piece jump blues band. They had the horn blasts and boogie beats to steal Cherry Poppin' Daddies fans, and the good sense to make their ...

    Son Volt - The Search (Red Int/Red Ink)

    The Search may be the perfect title for the latest album from Uncle Tupelo offshoot Son Volt, conveying the yearning, seeking quality that underlies the album's indie rock-flavored mix and lyrical bent. In fact, it is long past time to bury the "alt-...

    Relient K - Five Score and Seven Years Ago (Capitol)

    Where its higher-profile tour mates and pop-punk counterparts Simple Plan and Good Charlotte have coupled their massive record sales with face time in the spotlight, Ohio's Relient K has taken a subtler route to the top, remaining virtually faceless ...

    Green Pitch - Ace of Hearts (Funzalo Records)

    At its best, Ace of Hearts, the U.S. debut from Danish quintet Green Pitch, lilts, floats, and haunts like the best work of Mazzy Star; at its worst, Ace is ponderous, awkward, and inscrutable. Dream pop is undoubtedly the band's genre of choice, but...

    Good news for metalheads who are still living in 1983 Age of Evil (whose members are half your age) is making new music that sounds like outtakes from Iron Maiden's Killers album and Judas Priest's Hell Bent for Leather. The Scottsdale quartet (com...

    Richard Thompson - Strumming in the wind

    Call him a poor man's Dylan, or a wise man's Clapton. Richard Thompson is perhaps the most underrated performer of his generation. For 40 years, first with Fairport Convention, then with ex-wife Linda Peters, and finally solo, Thompson has continued ...

    Blood Sweat & Tears - Who's on?

    Most critics gave up on these horndogs back in '68, when they had the temerity to boot out founder Al Kooper to get someone who could really shhhaaaang! The counterculture gave up on 'em completely when they went on a 1970 State Department-sponsored ...

    Eric Clapton - He don't want to fade away

    Eric Clapton may have aged a bit too gracefully for many fans of his incendiary work with Cream, abandoning that youthful urgency in favor of a gentlemanly school of easy listening. And Back Home, his latest effort, clearly plays to Clapton's older, ...
