    Sound Waves

    In case you haven't heard already, we've abandoned the New Times Music Festival of the past in favor of a summer-long series of shows featuring the nominated bands in each category all playing together at one venue on one night with a national headl...

    Annals of Bad Band Names

    Perhaps it's unfair to pick on bands for choosing silly names (like I did with the boys in An Aesthetic here a while back), but sometimes the words just beg for it. Like with What Laura Says Thinks and Feels, which I assumed was an emo band (because...

    Since this Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, a totally cracker-ass holiday which happens to cause bands to play in excess all in the same day, I'm pimping some of this weekend's shows early. Friday night, if I'm not at the Ghostlife show, then I'll be chec...

    Ghosts and Their Machines

    It's pretty goddamn rare that when I get a random local CD with only my name printed on a white slip-sleeve and a flyer for an upcoming show in it that the band's any good. Actually, sometimes it's rare that the disc will get more than thirty second...

    Burned Out

    I hadn't heard from my old pal Marshall "Fucking" Beck in a while, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a comment on my Myspace page from him today. Apparently his old band Rebirth is releasing a CD soon (he's got a band called Reign of Vengeance t...

    Try Me Bicycle - Voicings (www.trymebicycle.com)

    Imagine a coffee shop gig. There's dude or dudette strumming away on stage, pouring his or her heart into the mic in between sips of complimentary joe (the musician's payment for performing). It's a nice change from the sounds of grinding beans and y...

    Beep! Beep!

    It's finally winter, and I'm feeling like that damn coyote in the cartoons, hungry for something good to put in my facehole. I'm tired as hell of chasing that elusive euphoric high by gulping beer and wine -- a compromise I've been trying since my do...

    Won't You Be My Neighbor? - Arcadia after dark

    The Arcadia neighborhood is known for stellar real estate and early mornings at La Grande Orange. So the nightlife is most likely to take place safely at home with a nice bottle of wine in a setting fit for a Pottery Barn catalog. But we had our susp...

    Source Victoria - The Fast Escape (www.myspace.com/sourcevictoria)

    Many have defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results," which explains why Ben Franklin flew his kite in lightning only once. In pop music, you want that kind of insanity -- plus repetition and reiteration ...

    Lupe Fiasco - Lupe Fiasco's The Cool (Atlantic)

    Though some believe Lupe Fiasco is too smart for mainstream rap, thats not exactly true. Most of the lyrics on his sophomore release, Lupe Fiascos The Cool, are pretty basic, clichd stuff, right down to the CDs opening monologue, They thought it...

    Axe Riverboy - Tutu to Tango (Minty Fresh)

    It's difficult enough to master the pop music idiom, let alone to do so in a second language. Frenchman Xavier Boyer has managed the impressive feat, singing in English through three strong albums with Parisian indie popsters Tahiti 80, and he conti...

  • D.I.



    Y'know, it's pretty remarkable how many ancient hardcore bands -- ones most of us thought were long gone -- are still crisscrossing this great land of ours with Econoline vans and U-Haul trailers, playing shows for the faithful: Agent Orange, Agnosti...

  • Acapulco-Five-O



    If the term "butt-shake" isn't part of your musical vernacular, you'd better get hip ASAP and have a listen to Phoenix's own Acapulco-Five-O. Inspired by '50s and '60s spy music, go-go, Latin exotica, and, of course, butt-shake, Acapulco-Five-O was d...

    Great gods of gravy, where would the hep world be without the subtle machinations of the Cramps and Stray Cats? Why, there wouldn't hardly be any rock-a-billy music 'round at all! Not to trash those combos (who've had their moments, especially their ...

    Your Brain on Music - Science starts to unravel our natural affinity

    How does music engage and touch us so deeply? Why is its presence so intrinsic to what we do? It's everywhere, from stereos and headphones to movie soundtracks and commercials. Even our voices possess a unique musicality. It's hardly essential to lif...

    Theres a slew of reasons we dig Al Page. Not only does the laid-back DJ and promoter have one of the most fly Afros in all of P-Town, but he also busts much ass on both the record decks and behind the scenes at the Hidden House, 607 West Osborn Road...

    Music for the Eyes - A bevy of new music DVDs, just in time for the holidays

    Music DVDs are typically used as stopgaps between CD releases or to drum up support for some other project an artist is promoting. Most amount to little more than music-video compilations, hastily shot concert films, or the latest chapters in continu...
