    Various Artists - Vee-Jay: The Definitive Collection (Shout Factory)

    There were a lot of great independent labels that flourished in the '50s and early '60s, and each owns a place in the stars Chess, Sun, Atlantic, Motown, Stax. It was a movement, a golden age for music geared toward a new teen demographic. Maybe it...

    The Liars Handshake - Pants on fire

    Drawing on a raw, ragged roots-punk ethos that's served everyone from The Pogues to Against Me!, Tempe's Liars Handshake stokes the same passionate fury. Featuring the core of the old punk outfit Bullet Train to Moscow, the band's led by the gruff, r...

    John Vanderslice, and The Bowerbirds - Tasty bites

    John Vanderslice is a generally unnoted musical impresario whose versatility, talent, and intelligence make it seemingly impossible for him to achieve the success he truly deserves though stranger things have happened. His impeccably crafted pop fl...

    Kings of Leon - Modern royalty

    We found this blurb on Yahoo!, describing the Kings of Leon's official Web site: "Rock band from Tennessee whose songs teem with primal emotions and rangy rhythms." First off, somebody from the Kings' camp wrote this. Second, somebody in the Kings' c...

    CSI: Scottsdale - One word: gloves

    For the longest time, we've been hoping the producers behind TV's CSI franchise are eventually gonna create a spin-off of the long-running TV series that takes place in the Valley, where the seedier side of the PHX would get fictionally depicted in s...

    The Horror...

    I've followed the horror-punk trio Calabrese for quite a while now (as you can see here in a June 2004 column I wrote), and I'm always pretty stoked when they drop a new record. The three brothers, Jimmy, Bobby, and Davey (that's in order of their ag...

    Mo' Blunted

    I've said it many times before, but I'm compelled to continue preaching that the Blunt Club is the best club night ever in town for real underground hip-hop. DumperFoo and his homeys keep proving it, week after week. Rather than dropping some names e...

    Miscellany

    Spent the last week or so immersing myself in the 8-piece live hip-hop/jazz project known as Antedote the Neato Project. If you're not familiar, you ought to be (you can read more about it in the 2/1 issue of New Times). These eight musicians kick ou...

    Joking Off - Andrew Jackson Jihad brings serious sing-along

    Guitarist Sean Bonnette is playing his acoustic ax like a troubadour on crank. The 21-year-old scruffy-haired musician is a supernova of manic energy, ripping vicious riffs onstage at the Trunk Space in downtown Phoenix as the frontman for folk-p...

    On the D-Low - Senti-metal journey

    Childish Ambitions - Rarer than a good mechanic

    To some, Billy Childish will come off as a crank. He's outspoken and has little patience for authority or institutions. It's the reason he was kicked out of St. Martin's School of Art in England when he was 16. You might call him a primitivist for...

    Prince - Planet Earth (Sony/BMG)

    If he hadn't choked to death in London's Samarkand Hotel 37 years ago, how many mediocre records would Jimi Hendrix have dropped by now? Stevie, The Stones, Sir Paul . . . they're all way past the point where any residual genius is still expected. ...

    Patti Smith - Twelve (Sony)

    A snotty music critic's hypothesis: No relevant artist releases a covers album. Several supporting examples have dropped in 2007 alone, and we'll get to those in a minute. Contrary evidence is scarce, but Exhibit A for the defense is Patti Smith's Tw...

    Daddy Yankee - El Cartel: The Big Boss (Interscope)

    It's unfortunate that Daddy Yankee is the poster boy for reggaeton in this country. It's even more unfortunate that he took this album as an opportunity to declare himself the Big Boss (of reggaeton, one would presume), mainly because the shortcoming...
