    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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

    You know that warm, contented feeling you get when it's woundingly cold outside and you're snuggled up in your favorite blanket sipping cocoa and watching Roseanne reruns? You can get nearly the same effect, minus the calories and eyestrain, from the...

    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...

    Benni Hemm Hemm - Very green

    Kajak the sophomore long-player from namesake/frontman Benedikt H. Hermannsson's Icelandic easy-listening band may not be the textbook definition of a guilty indie pleasure, but it's close. The lyrics aren't in English; the cover art looks like i...

    Snow Patrol - Awaiting the avalanche

    Neither a critic's band nor a super-popular radio sensation, Gary Lightbody's Glasgow group was, once upon a time, just a struggling indie-rock outfit, more Belle & Sebastian insular than Coldplay make-out music. By the time their breakthrough record...

    Movement Mondays - Is this going to be on the vinyl?

    The hipster headquarters known as Glam, 3174 East Indian School Road, isn't just a hotspot for seeing faux-hawked emo kids making out with chicks wearing American Apparel on a glowing, multicolored dance floor straight outta Saturday Night Fever. The...

    Radar Jamming

    Wow, that was a particularly uninspired heading for a blog post about one of the 'Nix's only superstars, DJ Radar. Astute longtime readers may already have realized that I've long been a homey of Radar's as well as a fan; I once took him back to my h...

    The three-girl, three-boy young'uns (the age range is 17-20) in Eyes Set to Kill are having quite a year. The screamo outfit released a well-received EP earlier in '06 and just recently dropped a DVD with eight songs performed live. Better yet, they'...

    Annals of Mediocrity

    Poorly written, silly-ass press releases are one of the humorous perks of this job; the flipside is when you have to actually listen to the CDs that they come with. Exhibit A: local female-fronted trio Niki Kwik's upcoming EP, No Need to Apologize. H...

    BFH Out...

    Word came to me recently that local lap-guitar troubadour Brodie Hubbard (aka Brodie Foster Hubbard, aka Brodie Fucking Hubbard) is leaving the 'Nix soon to head back to La-La Land. That's a loss for the singer-songwriter set here; as I wrote earlier...
