    Wensday - Torch Rock (Desert Dreams Records)

    Seductive jazz singer Wensday made her first Phoenix appearance at Alice Cooper's 2006 "Christmas Pudding" concert, where she performed a soulful version of Cooper's power ballad "Only Women Bleed." That track is included on Torch Rock, with ad-libbe...

    Ozzy Osbourne - Black Rain (Epic)

    What is Ozzy now, a hundred or something? You'd think the old coot would call it a career rather than further tarnish his legacy. Like most icons past their prime, though, maybe he just doesn't know when to say when. He's clearly saddled by idiots. W...

    Johnette Napolitano - Hooray, aging hipster

    Near the conclusion of Austin Powers (the first one), Dr. Evil taunts our hero, "There is nothing worse than an aging hipster." Veteran femme rock icon Grace Slick has said "old people" look, uh, foolish playing rock 'n' roll. It is a nice trick if o...

    Menomena - Free of independence at last

    This Portland trio clearly doesn't want people to know much about its background. Its latest album, Friend and Foe, though visually impressive with its cutout CD booklet and clever use of contrasting colors, contains almost nothing in the way of info...

    The Police - They've been practicing

    Twelve years ago, it seemed as if the music world barely noticed the release of The Police's posthumous double-live album. Clearly, something's changed since. And though it is encouraging to see such ravenous demand for the reunited Aryan trio, it's ...

    Norah Jones, and M. Ward - Two full courses

    Say what you will about Norah Jones, but the woman has the guts to choose opening acts that could potentially blow her off the stage. On her last go-round, Jones enlisted the mighty Gillian Welch to warm up the crowd, and this tour features the consi...

    Great Lake Swimmers - The mountain says what

    File Great Lake Swimmers under "alternative Canadian country" faster (sometimes) than a speeding Iron & Wine, less intense than a galloping Band of Horses and just about exactly as nasal as a youthful Neil Young (because though you can take the ban...

    Tortoise - Post brain flakes

    Amidst the bombast of Nirvana-influenced alternative rock in the '90s, a handful of Chicago-based musicians pioneered the genre of music tagged by critics as "post rock." Mixing a heady compound of jazz improvisation and outsider indie mentality, pos...

    Three-Chord Wonders - Cathartic monkeys bring on the punk

    Having covered music in this town for more than a decade, I see and listen to a lot of bands encompassing all genres, styles, and persuasions, but what I rock and go see for my personal enjoyment is another, more specific matter. A few years ago ...

    The Back of Love - Lindsey Buckingham has big, big love for his work

    Lindsey Buckingham is an artist. He peppers his conversation with references to Picasso and Pollock. He speaks of sounds as "colors." And like the stereotypical artiste, the Fleetwood Mac guitarist has been characterized as enigmatic, remote, even fl...

    Get Lost - Thank you for Leafing

    Our biggest complaint about the First Friday art walks is the lack of venues for getting stinking drunk. Carly's has a huge waiting list, The Roosevelt is packed beyond capacity, and Bikini Lounge's cash machine is usually tapped out by 10 p.m. The s...

    The Mane of Mayer's Existence - Hair today, hair tomorrow

    Whatever your feelings about John Mayer, it's difficult not to appreciate his hair, much in the same way it's difficult not to appreciate Hugh Grant's. Both share the same thick, wavy, dark brown locks that, let's face it, make the lady-folk swoon. F...

    On Keeping Kidman - A star is married

    Actors and actresses have a long history of falling for musicians. But, generally, those musicians are rock stars, sexually ambiguous pop stars, and members (or former members) of boy bands. Country stars used to rank on the "cool list," below white ...

    Traveler - Phoenicia (self-released)

    Who coined the term "world music?" Was it foreigners, resigned to Yankee cultural imperialism, who created it for Americans to signify "music you aren't expected to like"? Or was it Westerners themselves, who like to tap their toes to a snappy melody...

    The Morning Kennedy Was Shot - Pictures of Things Worth Looking At (self-released)

    There's a hippie hiding in here somewhere. Behind the dreamy, intentionally off-key harmonies, under the shuffling, soft snare drums, inside the closet with the plucky guitar that's trying to fade out of all the songs, there's something very sloppy-'...

    Jefferson Airplane - Sweeping Up the Spotlight: Jefferson Airplane Live at the Fillmore East 1969 (RCA)

    More than the Grateful Dead, San Francisco's Jefferson Airplane defined the summer of love's hippie ethos: lysergic lyrics ("White Rabbit"), an anti-authoritarian, us-versus-them attitude, and sonic eclecticism (rock, folk, jazz, blues, and world mus...

    Sage Francis - Human the Death Dance (Epitaph)

    Of Rhode Island MC Paul "Sage" Francis' fourth solo album, Filter magazine wrote, "You can call it emo or you can call it hip-hop." (Cue the sound of squealing brakes.) Huh? Francis may have been a member of Midwest emo-rap group Atmosphere, but ther...
