    Shot to the Head - Punk drunk love

    I've been burping up the taste of local acid-punk band Blanche Davidian for the past two days specifically, the carbonated cough syrup flavor of the band's new "Orange Sunshine" shot, available exclusively at Hollywood Alley in Mesa. The shot wa...

    Blanche Davidian - Orange Sunshine (Vodka Tonic Media)

    The psychedelic effects shine through sonically on Blanche Davidian's second album. Songs like "Queef Action" and "Rottweilers Keep Following Me" brim with fuzz and roar with reverb behind singer Jamie Monistat VII's spacey, snarky vocals, and the ti...

    Analog Roll - Local mystery mixer Djentrification stays out of cyberspace

    When we think of Willy Wonka, we think of a busy-bee eccentric, an inventor of sweet treats that capture the world's imagination, a dude who's content to plod away in a bizarre factory while ignoring societal norms in the process. So it's fitting ...

    Jerry Lawson - Jerry Lawson & Talk of the Town (Musical Earth)

    Ignore the cheesy cover art. Though it resembles a no-budget local LP pressing from 1970, Talk of the Town is one humdinger of a vocal album. For 40 years you read right Jerry Lawson was a singer with the long-lived a cappella group the Persuasio...

    Krall's Fair in Love and War - Keeping it cool

    Rich, hardcore jazz fans are different from you and me. They demand utter dedication to this art form from both artist and listener. Jazz is America's "classical music" serious, high art and, to the aficionado, "pure" jazz is the only worthwhile ...

    TrEmUlaNtS - Helicopter Moon (self-released)

    There's nothin' like a good old-fashioned drag show to kick off a CD-release party. Earlier this month, in what was quite possibly the wildest performance ever to grace the stage at Yucca Tap Room, a swarm of drag kings and queens danced, spanked, an...

    Scary Kids Scaring Kids - Scary Kids Scaring Kids (Immortal Records)

    No one can accuse Gilbert's Scary Kids Scaring Kids of lacking ambition. The local sextet's self-titled second album is an epic song cycle characterized by the album-opening anthem "Degenerates," which casts us into a jackbooted future, judging from ...

    Dax Riggs - We Sing of Only Blood or Love (Fat Possum Records)

    Legend says that blues great Robert Johnson made a deal with the devil at the crossroads in exchange for ungodly musical skill. Dax Riggs, former singer/guitarist of indie-rock duo Dead Boy and the Elephantmen, seems to have had a similar meeting wit...

    Goodbye Tomorrow - Give them something to cry about

    Goodbye Tomorrow might sound like a ridiculously cynical name for a band that hasn't even released its first album, but . . . well, okay, it is. One can't help but imagine that lead singer Travis Bryant and his Phoenix-based crew are on some sort o...

    Step Kid - Blended and beat

    Digital Me is the perfect title for Step Kid's debut EP. Combining the organic rhythms of hip-hop and jazz with the synthetic sounds of electronica and drum 'n' bass, the album has a pleasantly bipolar feeling that is slick and futuristic, but profou...

    Beyonc - And she can sing, too

    Family Values Tour - The what, now?

    If one band could be held responsible for the n-metal phenomenon that rose in the wake of grunge, it's safe to say that Korn would single-handedly take the blame. Defining the genre's funky rock-meets-rap sound with the down-tuned guitars on their h...
