    The Love Me Nots - In Black and White (Atomic A Go Go)

    Remember when it felt as if any band with loud guitars whose singer didn't make you think of Creed was being lumped in with the Vines as part of some ambiguous post-Strokes garage revival? This is what that music would've sounded like if it was real ...

    Lucinda Williams - Haunt got that swing

    The most powerful introduction to Lucinda Williams' new record, West, comes not from the languid, repetitive opener "Are You Alright?" but from the liner-note inscription by her poet father, Miller Williams: "You do not know what wars are going on d...

    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Nailed it

    Apparently, breaking up helped Black Rebel Motorcyle Club more than it hurt. After losing drummer Nick Jago, remaining members Peter Hayes and Robert Been took an abrupt, well-received detour into acoustic-based folk on 2005's Howl, which soon led to...

    Ozomatli - Fries with that shake

    Reflecting the urban polyglot of its Los Angeles home, Ozomatli purveys a Latin dance party fueled by horns and covering a seamless expanse of hip-hop, jazz, rock, funk, and salsa. The vibrant sound is impressive live, and the band won a Grammy for i...

    Bright Eyes - But you knew that already

    Bright Eyes' latest effort, Cassadaga, takes its name from a psychic community. The first voice you hear as the orchestra makes like "Revolution 9" is a clairvoyant going on about centers of energy, and there are references to cleansing and communing...

    Hellas Cool - Martian chronic

    As a music critic, it's a given that I see a shitload of local bands. I also see a lot of bad local bands, or at least ones that could really use some adjustments. Even talented acts around town bore the hell out of me if I see them a few times and t...

    Sonic Terror - Men in the hoods

    Now that extreme metal with an arty edge hardly seems trailblazing anymore, the concept of super-short albums stocked with blink-and-you'll-miss-it bursts of noise is losing its postmodern thrill. Though several acts have worked this angle with fresh...

    Getting Over Emo - Fall Out Boy transcends a taboo tag

    There is no better way to dismissively sum up a rock band than by labeling it "emo." This has almost universally worked for the past six or seven years, with few exceptions. But when those few exceptions do occur, music aficionados and pop culture, i...

    Treasure Mammal - You Wish I Was Channeling Your Spirit (Dreamy Draw Music)

    Popularity, in a Yogi Berra-esque paradox, alienates some music fans. They either don't want to be sheep or they simply want to avoid being trampled by the existing sheep in an eerie frenzy inspired by, let's say, the bouncy sweatball of performing e...

    Wax Tailor - Hope & Sorrow (Decon Inc)

    A patchwork of film and TV samples, scratches, and elegant baroque instrumentation on Hope & Sorrow follows French turntablist/producer Wax Tailor's 2005 debut, which isn't entirely different from this latest effort. Two years ago, Tailor employed lo...

    The Detroit Cobras - Tied & True (Bloodshot Records)

    At some point in rock 'n' roll, creativity got confused with originality bands and singers were suspect if their songs weren't self-penned. Performers recording others' songs were often seen as less "genuine" by the terminally hip. That kind of thi...

    Andrew Hill - Compulsion (Blue Note Records: RVG Edition)

    Compulsion is one of those albums that makes you scratch your head with wonder at how it could ever have gone out of print in the first place. Maybe we can blame the overabundance of jazz albums in the stratosphere, or maybe it's because the late pia...

    Beach House - Beach House (Carpark Records)

    Airily pretty, vicariously depressing, and just plain emotionally exhausting, the Velvet Underground & Nico tune "Sunday Morning" nailed comedown bummer rock with such precision that most later efforts in that direction have been left wanting. Some 3...

    Grinderman - Grinderman (Anti-)

    Nick Cave hasn't played electric guitar for years and his primitive, grinding approach to the instrument inspired the name of the band and the thrashing, primal, punky noise it spits out on its debut album. With Bad Seeds Warren Ellis (violin, keyboa...

    Nickel Creek - Ain't nothin' but a twang

    Perhaps only The New York Times could have written this headline: "Bluegrass That Can Twang and Be Cool Too." Excuse me? Somebody inform the Gray Lady that all bluegrass is cool. Nickel Creek, the subject of the above header, is just different. The t...

    Air - 78.1 percent nitrogen

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