    North Scottsdale's newest slice of La Voc Vita

    Considering the stiff penalties for drinking and driving, it's not often we make our way to the outskirts of town for a cocktail. But on Friday, January 18, we were feeling particularly sober and decided to check out a brand-new joint in north Scotts...

    3 Inches of Blood pools together a classic metal sound

    Ah, the new wave of British heavy metal. Affectionately known to metalheads the world over as the NWOBHM, the genre's sound was characterized by galloping rhythms, operatic vocals, and guitars that straddled the line between wailing, classical-tinged...

    Why wait until December? Let's commence with the 2008 music year in review

    For those of you going through "year-in-review" withdrawal, here's a day-by-day account of what the year's given us so far. January 1: Dick Clark's "New Years Rockin' Eve" hardly rocks, with Fergie, The Jonas Brothers, Carrie Underwood, and Miley ...

    Joe Jackson - Rain (Rykodisc)

    The first two lines on Joe Jackson's new album are: "Hey, can you hear me now, as I fade away and lose my ground? Maybe you'd like to know what I'd have to say, if I was still around." Are the words merely song lyrics or is ol' Joe wryly commenting o...

    Kate Nash - Made of Bricks (Interscope)

    Kate Nash's debut LP, Made of Bricks, was released last summer in the U.K., where she became an overnight sensation; both the CD and single, "Foundations," charted at number one. The 20-year-old from a London suburb pals around with Lily Allen, with ...

    Various Artists - Juno: Music From the Motion Picture (Rhino)

    Too many movie tie-in collections put profits before cohesion. Tunes by widely disparate performers, most of whom just happen to record for companies affiliated with the film studio, wind up being tossed together willy-nilly in the hope that one of t...

    Jesse Dayton and Brennen Leigh - "Holdin' Our Own" and Other Country Gold Duets (Stag)

    Keeping it real is always tricky. People who hate "new country" complain that it's not "authentic country." Though that may be true, it's no guarantee that every Gram Parsons-influenced, alt-country shit-kicker will be any more genuine. Jesse Dayton ...

    Leon Russell

    Southern-fried piano swamp funk doesn't get better than Leon Russell. His greasy R&B cadges a hopping, Delta blues stomp, fueled by his gravelly croak and his percussive pounding at the piano. Russell left Tulsa for L.A. at 16. There, he learned guit...

    The Toasters

    Remember way back (like, to the early '90s), when suddenly, almost out of nowhere, you heard a ska song on the radio? You inevitably thought to yourself, "What the fuck? Ska hasn't been popular in the U.S. for ages!" Shortly thereafter, you found you...
