    The Second Coming

    Ordinarily I'm a pretty blasphemous motherfucker; Jesus and I haven't had much of a rapport since I was in short pants. But, like an early Christmas miracle, I got a little bit of the Lord up in my hot little hands recently that, although its unlikel...

    Fat Tracks

    Last month Casey Lynch reviewed Fat Rhabit's self-titled debut EP, giving the local rockers a pretty glowing assessment. Just this morning, the band's manager Sean Shepherd sent over a couple new tunes from the Rhabit's upcoming full-length "rock ope...

    Another Robot Exclusive

    Last week I dropped a couple of new demo tracks from Army of Robots for your listening pleasure; after a debauched drinking marathon this weekend, frontman Daggrr hit me off with one more new track for you. "Fabulous" is about picking up a girl (who ...

    Caliente!

    Speaking of trite, I really couldn't come up with a better title for this blog post; you'd think I'd have learned more Espanol in my eleven years in Arizona... but I digress. I just got my hands on the latest release by Still Alive, a reggaeton group...

    Stink Hustlin'

    Once in a while we music critics get lucky and an especially stinky CD ends up in our hands... an easy target, something genuinely bad. I scored that recently, when I got my hands on some tracks by PHX rapper/R&B-er Sonny Long, whose debut album The ...

    Andy-Capped Parking

    Over the last month or so I've spent some time watching and listening as DJ My Friend Andy, formerly half of the Cute Lil' DJs (along with DJ Stefascope), worked on a remix album of Modest Mouse songs - mostly kind of older tracks from the Lonesome C...

    Move Over, MySpace - Friends like these

    Candee D*Vine wants to be your friend! She's 19, cute, bisexual, and "up for anything." If you approve her request, and you probably will, she'll go into the pile with the rest of your "friends," who are more than happy to invite you to check out the...

    Ladies Night - Looking for a good time

    I'm a bad lesbian. I rarely go to gay pride events, I've only seen one episode of The L Word, you couldn't get me anywhere near Lilith Fair. And I hardly ever hit the Valley's gay and lesbian clubs anymore. There are a few reasons for this: There...

    Let's Get It On - Feel the Rhythm

    This week, Club Candids decided to check out the Rhythm Room All-Stars show, where Big Pete Pearson and crew blared their tunes from the stage all night. This Phoenix favorite didn't offer the shiny youth we're used to seeing, but there was plenty of...

    A "Dreamy" Display - Local label showcase brings it

    As far as showoffs go, Arizona is an unforgivably cocky offender. First, we get all high and mighty about that great, glorified geological ass-crack up north, then we start trottin' out the "heavies" to campaign against Lyndon Johnson, and now it see...

    The Neoprimitive - The Neoprimitive (Self-released)

    If the members of The Neoprimitive have a defining strength, it's their ability to prioritize the unique quality of their music above the expectations of listeners or the limitations of genre. Each of the six tracks on the Tempe jam band's self-title...

    Arturo Sandoval - Rumba Palace (Telarc Jazz)

    After releasing a number of adventurous jazz albums, the Miami-based trumpeter goes back to his roots on this disc, delivering a straightforward collection of original songs that bear an Afro-Cuban feel not far from Buena Vista Social Club turf. Sand...

    Digitalism - Idealism (Astralwerks)

    Recorded in an old war bunker, the twitchy rhythms and hard synths that drive Digitalism's full-length debut are only part of the picture. Idealism is also shaped by its punk rock theatrics shrill sampled guitar riffs bounce off both channels as ke...

    Big Tex and the Blazin' Pintos - Stomp on down

    Fans of dirty country punk 'n' roll will love Big Tex and the Blazin' Pintos. With raunchy, twangy tunes like "Young and Filthy" and "We Miss Your Chili," this band may be Phoenix's answer to Hank III. The cowboy-hat wearin' quintet's debut album, Ro...

    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...
