    Via Vengeance - Dieography (www.myspace.com/shadesofbloood)

    Via Vengeance's songs sound gritty, dense, and calculated. The rhythms are snappy and solid, with seamless, simple timing changes that often lead into even simpler guitar interludes, but show attention to composition nonetheless. Not that Via Vengean...

    Los Straitjackets

    Before those hand-holding mop-tops from Liverpool hit these shores, instrumental rock was extremely popular. The charts belonged to The Ventures, Dick Dale, Link Wray (big influence on The Who's Pete Townshend), and even Brits like the Shadows and To...

    Remembering Joe Zawinul - Down them stairs, lose them cares

    It was the eve of the new millennium at Joe and Maxine Zawinul's beautiful place in lower Manhattan. The music of Marvin Gaye filled the home "What's Going On," as I recall. Zawinul had invited me to a small family celebration, and all my other ...

    The Vibrators

    Like their contemporaries in U.K. Subs, who lived in the same building, the seasoned pub musicians who formed the Vibrators in 1976 brought a blues tradition to the nascent punk scene. But while the scene was highly politicized and angry, the Vibes g...

    On Your Markers - Glossy format

    So witty, so inquisitive, so downright loquacious is Elisa Ambrogio that a telephone interview with her threatens to unravel at any given moment, to turn obliviously tangential not unlike the music she's made, until recently. A question about autho...

    MODE Thursdays

    For most of the past decade, the record-rocking diva known as Sonique des Fleurs has been a mainstay of the Valley's EDM scene. Since debuting in 1999, the 30-year-old sultry spinstress has been a fixture at countless local raves, club nights, and DJ...

    Playa's Paradise

    We're just finishing up a nice dinner at Dick's Hideaway on a random Wednesday night when I hint at the urge to slum it for a few. Carla picks up on my slobbering (and the fact that I'm done paying $9 for a glass of wine). She says she has the perfec...

    will.i.am - Songs About Girls (Interscope)

    Derivative, repetitive, insipid, insincere, and pandering, Songs About Girls also has the worst insert booklet in recent memory seven pages of will.i.am mugging in a checkered suit. The first song, "Over," a lover's lament featuring a sample from E...

    Still the Circle K of record stores

    Sadly, things haven't changed much. Except for the fact that indie bastions Eastside Records and Stinkweeds have had to downsize -- Eastside cutting its store size in half, and Stinkweeds closing up its Tempe location. And Zia, it appears, has stayed...

    Apparently, Not Quite Dead, But...

    Sometimes some really weird shit comes across my desk, like this album, Remnants Resolved, by Skerlak Dead with four songs this Phoenix-based guy M. Skerlak recorded back in 1984, and two that he recorded in 1961. According to his myspace page, dude ...

    Anti-Authoritarian

    I happily admitted in a previous column that I was a fan of Authority Zero frontman Jason Devore's solo album, Conviction. But I also made it clear that I don't appreciate or understand AZ's music; I find it generic, formulaic, and oftentimes a bad b...

    Foot Ox - self-titled (self-released)

    There's a reason the acoustic, singer-songwriter band Foot Ox has been dubbed "broken folk." Actually, there are more than a dozen instrumental reasons, as project frontman Teague Cullen not only wields a finely tuned guitar and a distinguishable set...

    PJ Harvey - White Chalk (Island)

    Sometimes, the simplest music is the most affecting. So it goes with PJ Harvey's new studio album, White Chalk, which often feels like a sequel to Bjrk's Vespertine. Absent are the scorched-earth guitars and feral vocals for which the songwriter is ...
