    Bro Beats

    Jared and Michael Bell, the brothers who make the pretty noises in Lymbyc Systym, are about to drop the band's first album on the influential Mush Records label, home also to avant-beatmakers and MC's like cLOUDDEAD, Aesop Rock, Jel, Odd Nosdam, and ...

    Cap'n Spazz

    I usually find it pretty goddamn annnoying when bands take their names from other band's song titles. This was the case when I first heard about Scary Kids Scaring Kids - especially since the band's name is copped from one of my favorite bands, the C...

    Bzzzz-Worthy

    Just received a missive and a new song from Robin Vining of the Sweetbleeders (and Colorstore) yesterday, asking if I'd let y'all know about the listening party for the band's upcoming new album, Bzzzz. No problem; the Sweetbleeders make some of the ...

    PHX Hold Em

    It's been a while since I last checked in with Pokafase, the 'Nix's long-suffering aspirant to establishing PHX hip-hop as a west coast powerhouse. His latest album The Martyr is due out any time, so I grabbed a couple of his tracks (one off of Maste...

    Snow Songs for the Winter

    A few bar nights back I went out with my old friend Yolanda Bejarano, who's not only a swell girl but an incredible musician, and who's been cranking out music since I moved here eleven years ago, in bands like Slugger, the Slowdown, and a mariachi b...

    The Name Game - Two decades of identity crisis

    No Use for a Name has been around for 20 years now, which is staggering when you consider that just about as many people know the punk band's name today as in 1987, though that may have something to do with the fact that it has no use for one. Then a...

    Jones Fix - Longer time gone

    The man they once called Tiger Tom was savvy enough to secure all the rights to his ITV variety show, which ran in England and America from 1969 to 1971, but securing rights from some of the performers proved harder. That's why review copies of the D...

    CTS - Sentimental Journey (New Circle Entertainment)

    After seeing CTS live, I was impressed by the musicianship and the band's earnest approach to gimmick-less rock songwriting. There's nothing trailblazing in the tunes here, but fans of artists like the Gin Blossoms and John Mayer will appreciate the ...

    Bodhisattva - Procession of Lost Souls (Word Up Kid)

    Depending on where listeners were introduced to Bodhisattva's sonic mania, they may harbor two significantly different profiles of the duo fronted by vocalist/guitarist Justin Cory and drummer Shane Sittig. Compare their brutal first release, Brain C...

    Guvs Just Wanna Have Fun - Kinda like The Beatles

    I am drunk, and I'm standing in the middle of a baseball field, dancing with Governor Janet Napolitano. No, this wasn't a dream, although I have to admit I woke up the next morning and wondered, "Did that really happen?" But it did, and on the...

    The Earps - Here Come The Earps (Big Bender Records)

    Rock 'n' Western, country 'n' roll, twang and Taylor Ham there's nothing new here, and that's fine. The Earps say it's about the '70s and they're right. These guys could be the Apache Junction descendants of David Allan Coe at his orneriest, a muta...

    Play Ball - Bocce and booze at The Vig

    We remember when "nightlife" at 40th Street and Indian School consisted of a run-down Taco Bell and a super-scummy dive bar. But now that the Arcadia neighborhood is suddenly sexy, there's a little scene happening at The Vig that we decided to tap in...

    KRS-One and Marley Marl - Hip-Hop Lives (Koch Records)

    With stunning production from old rival Marley Marl, KRS-One delivers a sharp retort to Nas' recent proclamation that Hip Hop Is Dead but not without kicking some dirt on gangsta culture. The highlights on this 12-track disc are many, including "No...

    Back on the Sun - Brothers Curt and Cris Kirkwood's road to the Meat Puppets reunion

    The next guy who calls 2007 "the year of the reunion" is gonna get his nose separated from his face. Sure, 40 years removed from the Summer of Love, it'd be nice to think there were larger Utopian forces at work beyond common greed and stalled solo c...

    Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist (Marthas Music/Reprise)

    Those of you hoping Smashing Pumpkins' comeback record is an unmitigated disaster will be disappointed: It's not. Those of you afraid that head Pumpkin Billy Corgan made another The Future Embrace (his ber-synthpop, somewhat cheesy solo album) will ...

    Sound Tracks - It's got a good bite

    Vampire Weekend is a quartet of Columbia University graduates who are not vampires and do not sing about them. They do, however, sound a lot like what would happen if Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and one or two members of the Walkm...

    Interpol - Our Love to Admire (Capitol Records)

    Interpol's major label debut, Our Love to Admire, isn't as monochrome (or monotonous) as its previous two albums. "Pioneer to the Falls" is arguably the richest song they've ever recorded, a track that channels the stormy textures of the Cure's Porno...

    Beastie Boys - The Mix-Up (Capitol Records)

    Since the Beastie Boys released License to Ill more than two decades ago, all paths into New York nostalgia and downtown have led back to them. So what's a guy named Adrock, or MCA, or Mike D to do? No wonder, with The Mix-Up, they've got nothing to ...

    What Laura Says Thinks and Feels - Curl up, baby

    Motion City Soundtrack - Vocal heroes

    Ever since Motion City Soundtrack frontman Justin Pierce announced his trepidation for what is to come on the insanely catchy "The Future Freaks Me Out," from the Minneapolis fivesome's 2003 debut, I Am the Movie (Epitaph), it's been nearly impossibl...
