    DeVotchKa - Those fancy little gourmet jams

    Pity the poor music journalist charged with the task of describing the enticingly exotic and eccentric music created by DeVotchKa. Over its six years of existence, scribes and screed-slingers (including this one) have used a plethora of hyphen-laced ...

    Gary Numan - It's the only way to live

    Gorilla Biscuits - Flaky and hot

    HeadSpace - Put yours in a better one

    Off on a Bender - Playing the circuit circuit

    Corey Busboom's house is a gloriously ginormous mess. Quite frankly, it looks like a thrift store exploded inside the cluttered confines of the 27-year-old's central Phoenix residence, as almost every inch of floor space is choked with a collecti...

    A Change of Pace - Prepare the Masses (Immortal Records)

    Back when rock was a real arena monster, fans used to hold up lighters at rock shows. At shows by local pop punk/hard rock band A Change of Pace, fans hold up their illuminated cell phones. That gesture's a great metaphor for ACoP's music it's an o...

    Boy Kill Boy - Civilian (Island)

    Here's the problem with riding the ass-end of a wave where everything old is new again: The tide eventually comes in, and what was previously a tight refurbishment seems like trite regurgitation. Take London-based synth-pop rockers Boy Kill Boy the...

    Ben Harper - Are you gonna go his way?

    Poor Ben Harper. No matter where he goes, no matter what new songs he brings, he always gets slapped with either the "poor man's Lenny Kravitz" or the "thinking man's Lenny Kravitz" tag (depending on the graciousness of the critic). Of course, that's...
