    Canada - The band from Michigan

    This seven-piece eclectic entourage is no stranger to those of us here in the United States. The band hails from Ann Arbor, Michigan, and you won't find any Mounties, hockey players or hosers here. Canada is no more Canadian than Toronto native Neil ...

    Battles - Don't ask

    No calendar year is complete without at least a handful of insurgent, crit-consensus staples that can't quite win over the populace. M.I.A, Strokes, Liz Phair we're waving sadly back at you from a future where even Maroon 5's label status is uncert...

    Sonny Rhodes - Baptized in blues

    Some 50-odd years ago, deep in the bowels of Texas, a young sharecropper's son was hired by a white family to stand silently in the parlor and crank the arm on the Victrola. As the strains of Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith pumped out of the horn and into...

    Paulina Rubio - Cross over anytime

    Following in the footsteps of Latina crossover artists like Shakira and Aterciopelados, this Mexican pop singer takes her music into directions from pop-flavored rancheras and rock to reggaeton-inspired moments. Critics may dislike this lack of focus...

    Robot Rock

    Way back in February of 2005, I wrote a column saying that Army of Robots had succeeded Tucson's The Bled as the best band in Arizona (in my opinion, of course), and that they'd "fucked up the whole paradigm and established a new gold standard for Ar...

    This Week in Revolver

    In tomorrow's new ish of the paper, I hang out with the Breadwinners, a four-piece traditional bluegrass group that plays at the Loft in Tempe every Tuesday night. There ain't much bluegrass in these parts, but these four bring it with an authenticit...

    The Revolution Will be Interwebbed

    Back in late August I wrote a feature on revolutionary rapper GRIME (the acronym stands for "Got Revolution In My Eyes") and his musical perpetuation of the Revolutionary But Gangsta movement. Apparently GRIME's getting up in the election day today i...

    Beat-ing Off

    Local producer Aaron Roberts released a tricky little EP of booty shaking house beats called Hip-Hop Stop on Nashville label Photo Records this week. The "hip-hop" reference is deceiving - this is bass-heavy house with chopped-up vocals and dancefloo...

    Morning Wormwood

    This local self-described "dustcore" outfit called Wormwood Brothers sent me a beautiful little track called "Trigger Happy" that reminds me of shoegazers with a taste for y'all-ternative bands like Wilco, Son Volt, and their ilk. It's pretty fucking...
