    Oh, Brothers! - The soundtrack to your life

    Cary Brothers isn't a household name yet, but it's been pretty hard to escape his music ever since his acoustic ballad "Blue Eyes" appeared on the Grammy-winning soundtrack to 2004's Garden State. In the interim, Brothers has released two EPs, and hi...

    Z-Trip - All-Pro (Decon Inc)

    Blessthefall - His Last Walk (Science/Ferret International)

    If you took a hand counter to a televangelist, you'd click six times as many references to Satan as to his former boss it's way better for the play-acting to grouse and growl than it is to ape a stoic and benevolent Christ. So why should a screamo ...

    Billie Holiday - Remixed & Reimagined (Sony Legacy)

    I can hear the ghost of Billie Holiday now: "What the hell is that, a programmed drum beat? Why is it burying my vocals? How could they turn all my winsome wails into sound bites and samples? This is NOT the blues!" Perhaps the blues legend would...

    Eroticide - Yay, torture!

    It's hard to tell if the musicians in Eroticide received too much attention from their mothers or if they received too little of it. Whatever the situation, it seems likely that the members of the band developed their rabidly misogynistic stage perso...

    Deep Purple - Swiss time is running out

    Here's a reconstituted '70s classic-rock group with an otherwise engaged leader. Deep Purple's grumpy guitar hero, Ritchie Blackmore, probably hasn't even played the "Smoke on the Water" riff around the house since 1993, but clearly, Purple is the he...

    Zappa Plays Zappa - The Zappa doesn't fall far from the tree

    This is not Frank Sinatra Jr. embarrassing his dad by warbling "My Way" for the Geritol geezers, nor is it Mercer Ellington working hard to do the Duke proud and missing the mark. And this is not a mixed bunch of ex-sidemen doing a songbook while a d...

    Chris Isaak - What a wicked hit it is

    Most of the time, the songs that come to represent an artist in the public's memory don't do justice to the full scope of the artist's musical accomplishments across an entire career. How many times do we find ourselves telling other people things li...

    Ravers of the Caribbean - We sail at nine-ish

    Caged Heat

    I'm sad and I feel like crap because a close friend is moving away. That calls for some goodbye libations. I'm lonely enough in this conservative, transplant-filled, call-center-laden convection-oven Valley, and my only respite (well, aside from cock...

    Calamari

    For the last couple of months - since this blog began, really - I've been harassing my fellow hard-drinker Tony Patino of Attack of the Giant Squid to leak me some preview tracks from the as-yet-untitled album the band's been working on. If you don't...

    Undefeated

    I spent last night listening to the punk rock go down at BANNED in Tempe!, listening to DJ's Alvin, Nate Dogg and Cro-Mag throw down the dope shit at the Stray Cat (which you'll be able to read more about in my column in a couple of weeks). Tyler Kin...

    That's a Rap - Putting away the 40

    Forget the mainstream-underground battle. In hip-hop, success at either end of the spectrum often depends on stereotype and formula. Either rappers get all blingy, or they waste all their time dissing the bling. Sage Francis is the exception. O...

    Getting Railed - Reminiscing on the route

    Village Vagrants - Truth is less danceable than fiction

    In 1977, the Village People burst onto the disco scene, and by 1978, thanks to the success of their single "YMCA," the homoerotic disco singers had become infamous for their costumes and "American man" personas: police officer, American Indian chief,...

    Gypsy Road - Thank you, glam

    When the members of Psycho Gypsy first applied makeup to their young faces in early 1992, it was at a time when their musical heroes had thoroughly scrubbed the stuff out of their pores, seemingly for good. Psycho Gypsy co-founder and bassist/guitari...

    Soft Shoulder - Soft Shoulder (Arbor)

    Cardiac Party - R Cacti Yard, PA (Self-released)

    It's no small source of stupid pride for me that there are a million cool anagrams for my name, everything from Mr. Iodine Scene to I Sneer Demonic to No Dicier Semen. Any one of these would make a natty album title. But apparently, it's equally no s...

    The Cremains - The Bird, The Snake, and The Dog (Towering House)

    Hard to believe, but in the 10-plus years that The Cremains have made rawkin' their business, they've never been represented by a full-length recording. Besides the two EPs that started them off, there was the Sacred Stage album they did with Navajo ...
