    Burned Out

    I hadn't heard from my old pal Marshall "Fucking" Beck in a while, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a comment on my Myspace page from him today. Apparently his old band Rebirth is releasing a CD soon (he's got a band called Reign of Vengeance t...

    Backed Up

    Don't let the photo above scare you, it's only my homeboy Ryan Breen, a.k.a. the one-man electronic machine known as Back Ted N-Ted. He's just finished up his debut album, Pop Animal, that's scheduled to be released soon by Ohio indie Abandon Buildi...

    Some Photos from a Friend

    I missed the Crowded House/Liam Finn show last Thursday at the Marquee, but one of the swell guys who occasionally takes photos of bands for my column was there, and sent me these shots as well as a pretty rave review of the gig. The photog is Luke ...

    Post-Turkey Papago - Libations and laziness

    It took us a couple of days before we dragged our bloated bellies out in public after stuffing ourselves on Thanksgiving. Instead of hitting a hotspot with expectations of beautiful faces and flat tummies, we decided to hit a casual favorite, Papago ...

    Psych 101 - Attachment Disorder (self-released)

    We need some Quaaludes. We can't stop listening to Phoenix rock trio Psych 101's Attachment Disorder, and it's totally messing with our heads. All of its danceable dirges are giving us delusions: that Joy Division brought Ian Curtis back from the de...

    The Kim Philbys - Whir Whir Whir (Evangeline)

    San Francisco trio The Kim Philbys has guts -- don't they realize bands these days are supposed to be predictable, either melodious or arty-abrasive, not both? In this manner, they recall (yet don't sound like) the Meat Puppets, who encompassed brut...

    Kevin Michael - Kevin Michael (Downtown/Atlantic)

    Where is R&B going these days? That is the question posed by this Philadelphia newcomer, whose self-titled CD features guest appearances from Lupe Fiasco, Q-Tip, and Wyclef Jean. The first track that grabs the listener's attention is the anti-racist...

    Muscles - Guns Babes Lemonade (Modular)

    It's hard to know when, or whether, the Australian one-man dance act known as Muscles is being serious. Live, ensconced behind a tower of keyboards and contraptions, he'll yell to his hipster crowd, "This is my trance song! Do you all like trance?!"...

    Vampire Weekend

    Music scribes can appreciate the smart-ass lyrics of Vampire Weekend's ber-groovy song "Oxford Comma," wherein singer and guitarist Ezra Koenig quips and croons, "Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?/I've seen those English dramas too-oo/They're...

    Will Hoge
