    Green Pitch - Ace of Hearts (Funzalo Records)

    At its best, Ace of Hearts, the U.S. debut from Danish quintet Green Pitch, lilts, floats, and haunts like the best work of Mazzy Star; at its worst, Ace is ponderous, awkward, and inscrutable. Dream pop is undoubtedly the band's genre of choice, but...

    Age of Evil - Metal never sleeps

    Good news for metalheads who are still living in 1983 Age of Evil (whose members are half your age) is making new music that sounds like outtakes from Iron Maiden's Killers album and Judas Priest's Hell Bent for Leather. The Scottsdale quartet (com...

    Richard Thompson - Strumming in the wind

    Call him a poor man's Dylan, or a wise man's Clapton. Richard Thompson is perhaps the most underrated performer of his generation. For 40 years, first with Fairport Convention, then with ex-wife Linda Peters, and finally solo, Thompson has continued ...

    Blood Sweat & Tears - Who's on?

    Most critics gave up on these horndogs back in '68, when they had the temerity to boot out founder Al Kooper to get someone who could really shhhaaaang! The counterculture gave up on 'em completely when they went on a 1970 State Department-sponsored ...

    Eric Clapton - He don't want to fade away

    Eric Clapton may have aged a bit too gracefully for many fans of his incendiary work with Cream, abandoning that youthful urgency in favor of a gentlemanly school of easy listening. And Back Home, his latest effort, clearly plays to Clapton's older, ...

    Priestbird - What has six legs and flies?

    Priestbird not to be confused with Priestess, Judas Priest, or "Freebird" can be confused with Tarantula A.D. That's the name under which the New York trio crafted its unique, enticing blend of classical music, freak-folk, punk, psychedelia, pro...

    The Lucky Bitches - Spinning the fun

    Catherine Vericolli and Ryan Champagne might've dubbed themselves The Lucky Bitches, but the truth is that they're quite the pleasant pair. Consider them to be goofballs to the third degree, as they named their DJ duo after a French & Saunders skit ...

    Kid Rock - Fretting the small stuff

    Other than a few years of classical piano as a preteen, I never learned to play music. My parents wouldn't buy me a guitar or a drum kit, I never got to sing in front of an audience (thankfully, since I can't sing), and I never had a rock band. And g...

    Shades of Gray - Hipstory-hopstory-history

    In the 30 years since its inception, hip-hop has grown from a means of expression for oppressed black youth to a major force in American popular culture. As such, hip-hop has been appropriated by all segments of our society most controversially, by...

    Queer Eye - Miffing accomplished

    For nearly 20 years, the Queers have made a crude pop art of thrashing through their most infectious songs with the reckless abandon of a hardcore band a really funny hardcore band that worships the Ramones and The Beach Boys. They actually cover t...

    Party Like a Rock Star - Shaking asses and eardrums at The Rogue

    After hitting up a couple empty clubs this past Saturday night, we finally gave in and headed to The Rogue in Scottsdale for Shake!'s two-year anniversary. Leave it to William Fucking Reed to steal the crowds, because on Saturday, February 24, the pl...

    Poppy Hybrids - Annuals sound stems from Brian Wilson, Brad Paisley, and "big-ass dogs"

    "I thought it was garbage," says guitarist Kenny Florence, recalling the first time singer/songwriter Adam Baker let him hear the new songs he'd been writing as Annuals. "The first few songs, I really didn't like. And he'll admit to you that they'...

    Kittie - Funeral for Yesterday (X of Infamy)

    As much as Kittie benefited from the late-'90s n-metal explosion, they were always one smart step removed from it: From the scrappy, Hole-via-Cannibal Corpse death-grunge of 1999's Spit, to the Pantera-style bludgeoning of 2001's Oracle, to the fine...

    Arcade Fire - Neon Bible (Merge)

    Arcade Fire's Neon Bible is a dense, academic, and ultimately rewarding album fixated on questions of spirituality, religion and the concept of self and, more specifically, how to reconcile these things in a bleak world where uncertainty is the nor...

    Fall Out Boy - Infinity on High (Island)

    Although Fall Out Boy lyricist/dreamboat Pete Wentz is inveterately verbose, his words don't mask profundity, and that's a big reason for his band's success. A lot of emo acts have a limited audience because of all that freakin' emotion. But instead ...

    Ed Petterson - The New Punk Blues of Ed Petterson (Split Rock Records)

    Petterson was born in New York City but lives in Nashville. He's not a punk, nor is his music bluesy, so the title of the CD is puzzling. Maybe he's just venting some leftover NYC attitude. Petterson's music is folky, funky and country, with a skewed...

    Trans Am - Sex Change (Thrill Jockey)

    Sex Change starts off re-exploring Trans Am's journeys on the Autobahn, as the echo of Afrobeat guitars washes over the lull of a trance-inducing synth riff. But they move on quickly while keeping the synth front and center on "North East Rising Sun,...

    Lucinda Williams - West (Lost Highway)

    Well, Lucinda Williams' first release in four years won't be making many people's lists of Least Depressing Albums of 2007. Someone took her joy again. And this time, there's no sign that joy is coming back, as Williams struggles through the heartach...
