    Air - 78.1 percent nitrogen

    Although the men of Air have never been the most explosive Frenchmen on the planet, there are times on the album Pocket Symphony where they feel more like air with a lowercase "a" than Air, the brains behind the sad yet swanky space-pop classic Moon ...

    Gwen Stefani - Get on board or move out of the way

    Slam-o-Rama - Smarking the territory

    My buddy B-Boy looks like he could kick some serious ass. At 6-foot-4 and 350 pounds, he strikes an imposing figure in his baggy Dickies pants and stained T-shirts. His shaved head and scraggly beard add to the intimidation factor, so it's a good thi...

    Bear Affair - Some 'splaining to do

    What the hell is a Limbeck? Short answer: a member of Limbeck, a So-Cal cocktail of Jayhawks roots rock and Shins dream-pop that often gets called alt-country. The long answer: Many moons ago, the Bastards of Limbeck were a teen pop-punk band named a...

    Occult Classic - Revel in the details

    Dir En Grey - The Marrow of a Bone (Warcon)

    This Japanese rock band is huge in its home country, and it's starting to make waves here in the States, despite being way too cool for us. Dir En Grey is seriously the hippest hard metal band to hit the Western world in a long time. Originally part ...

    Jet - 1, 2, 3 . . . 11!

    Scott H. Biram - Alive and picking

    Lots of artists get touted for being raw and uncompromising, but Texan hellraiser Scott H. Biram truly is. Put in perspective, Biram didn't "compromise" when he was hit head-on by an 18-wheeler truck and took to the stage in a wheelchair a month late...
