    Traveler - Phoenicia (self-released)

    Who coined the term "world music?" Was it foreigners, resigned to Yankee cultural imperialism, who created it for Americans to signify "music you aren't expected to like"? Or was it Westerners themselves, who like to tap their toes to a snappy melody...

    The Morning Kennedy Was Shot - Pictures of Things Worth Looking At (self-released)

    There's a hippie hiding in here somewhere. Behind the dreamy, intentionally off-key harmonies, under the shuffling, soft snare drums, inside the closet with the plucky guitar that's trying to fade out of all the songs, there's something very sloppy-'...

    Jefferson Airplane - Sweeping Up the Spotlight: Jefferson Airplane Live at the Fillmore East 1969 (RCA)

    The Wreckers - Girl group goodness

    Stand Still, Look Pretty is an apt title for pop-country duo The Wreckers. Not only are Michelle Branch and her former backup singer, Jennifer Harp, easy on the eyes, but their lilting, almost childlike harmonies are gorgeous. With practically interc...

    Unsane - Heavy fuel

    Reality does bear out this theorem: The smaller the band, the greater the intensity. Trios have generated some of the loudest, most intense, most volatile squall: Cream, Blue Cheer, Minutemen, Painkiller (John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and ex-Napalm Death ...

    Dive In - Introducing your guide to skeevy pub-crawlin'

    On a recent Thursday afternoon, disgruntled by the heat, Phoenix drivers, and the smell of my pants, I drop my Boston terrier, Murray, at home and high-tail it to a small bar in a strip mall marked by a fuzzy neon orange-red glow. I arrive at the ...

    Hot in the Shady's - Location, location, location

    We remember back in the day when Shady's had a different name and was full of bearded, blue-collar workers guzzling beer to wrap up a hard day's work. Not so much any more with its new name and new jukebox, the little neighborhood bar has become a ...

    Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different/Betty Davis (Light in the Attic)

    Betty Davis spent the 1970s setting a towering standard for future freak-funk broads. Her strong come-ons in the growly vox department could still scare modern wanna-fucks back to the Stone Age. The brief, volatile relationship with her then-hubby Mi...
