    Maverick Mavis - This Staples Singer still wants to change the world

    Mavis Staples may be 68 years old, but the righteous fire that distinguished so many of her rich, bottomless vocals during an extraordinary 50-plus-year career continues to burn brightly. When asked why the songs of struggle that make up We'll Never ...

    Bruce Springsteen - Magic (Sony)

    Magic is being hyped as Springsteen's rocking return to his classic period, and that's understandable: The album contains lotsa familiar musical totems, not to mention lyrics about driving a highway until the road turns black, and a diner on the edge...

    Pit Stop - You can mosh, potato

    There was a time, in the early '90s, when there was no mosh pit I wouldn't brave. I loved the sweat-drenched chaos, the primordial release of pent-up aggression, the feeling of being one with a motley mass of metalheads. I even took pride in my post-...

    Konono No. 1 - Live at Couleur Caf (Crammed Disc)

    Make It Merc - Friday night gets fancy

    After taking a week off, we wanted to return to the scene with some class. So instead of slumming it with plastic cups and scummy restrooms, we decided to check out the Phoenix dig that's known for a hot mess of $30K millionaires, the Merc Bar. On Fr...

    Matt Pond PA

    Frontman Matt Pond doesn't care for the term "chamber pop," and it's a loose fit. His band's sound is more Delgados than Belle & Sebastian, which is to say that though the quintet frequently uses strings for texture and its melancholy tone, there's a...

    Keali'i Reichel

    The Cave Singers, and Black Mountain

    Cave Singers frontman/guitarist Pete Quirk doesn't need a band, really. He's got a vocal delivery so weathered and lived-in thin as a middle-aged woman's croak, almost, or a limited Perry Farrell that it'd even be a devastating weapon sans instru...

    Bobby Bare Jr.

    It's almost impossible to believe Bobby Bare Jr. is the son of legendary countrypolitan crooner Bobby Bare. Bare Jr.'s tongue-in-cheek lyrics, dry vocals, and '60s pop-infused melodies are in direct opposition to his father's schmaltzy country fare. ...

    Furious George

    What seems like a million years ago -- but was really just half-a-lifetime, when I was 15 or 16, I was a faithful/fanatical reader of Maximum Rock N Roll. If you don't know, it was the bible of punk rock, a newsprint compilation of all the obscuritie...

    Marketing Lessons

    The band SiOP's press release begins, "SiOP was formed in the summer of 1998 and has been on the rise ever since." Truth is, SiOP never left 1998 and its plethora of shit bands: Static-X, Papa Roach, Linkin Park, the Bizkit, etcetera. Here's the go...

    Remembering Joe Zawinul - Down them stairs, lose them cares

    It was the eve of the new millennium at Joe and Maxine Zawinul's beautiful place in lower Manhattan. The music of Marvin Gaye filled the home "What's Going On," as I recall. Zawinul had invited me to a small family celebration, and all my other ...

    On Your Markers - Glossy format

    So witty, so inquisitive, so downright loquacious is Elisa Ambrogio that a telephone interview with her threatens to unravel at any given moment, to turn obliviously tangential not unlike the music she's made, until recently. A question about autho...

    Via Vengeance - Dieography (www.myspace.com/shadesofbloood)

    Via Vengeance's songs sound gritty, dense, and calculated. The rhythms are snappy and solid, with seamless, simple timing changes that often lead into even simpler guitar interludes, but show attention to composition nonetheless. Not that Via Vengean...

    Drastic Elastic - Devendra Banhart's latest bends and stretches, but doesn't break his spell

    The best descriptors for Devendra Banhart's latest album, Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon, come in pairs; one at a time doesn't do justice to its heady tensions or its creator's labyrinthine mystique. The record is kinetic yet placid, pensive yet dr...

    will.i.am - Songs About Girls (Interscope)
