    Play Some Skynyrd! - This band you cannot change

    Don't even mention the words "dead horse" to Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Rickey Medlocke he gets pissed. Making it perfectly clear that the current incarnation of the iconic Southern rock band that brought us "Free Bird" is no knockoff, Medlocke v...

    X Marks the Spot - It's always a gamble

    Considering the haunted after-hours vibe he kept returning to on last year's critically acclaimed Forever Hasn't Happened Yet, it may seem strange to find John Doe reissuing the far more raucous For the Rest of Us, a little-heard EP from 1998, as For...

    Blazing Saddle - Where the girls are

    Corey Parks is like a bad-ass biker broad wielding a fierce four-string. The trashy, inked-up bassist has always struck an intimidating figure onstage, whether she was stomping around in shredded fishnets and cowboy boots in Die Hunns next to punk pa...

    Primal Scream Kasabian - Riot City Blues (Columbia) Empire (RCA)

    Even when Primal Scream didn't match the creative heights reached by Screamadelica's rave-worthy bliss-outs or the electro-punk of XTRMNTR, they never lacked self-confidence. After all, they coaxed (and kept) My Bloody Valentine's reclusive Kevin Shi...

    Georgia Anne Muldrow - Olesi: Fragments of an Earth (Stones Throw)

    Olesi: Fragments of an Earth, completely produced and sung by Georgia Anne Muldrow, may be the most idiosyncratic soul album released this year. Most of the songs last less than three minutes, living up to the title's promise as "fragments" and rando...

    Spencer Dickinson - The Man Who Lives for Love (YepRoc)

    This is a collaboration between blues noise guitarist/singer Jon Spencer and Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars, another band that knows a thing or two about laying down a primal blues squall. The legendary Jim Dickson produc...

    Tortoise - A Lazarus Taxon (Thrill Jockey)

    The cloaking of A Lazarus Taxon in immaculate, arty, black-and-white photographs of car accidents seems antithetical to this boxed set's methodically crafted contents: 15 years' worth of hard-to-track-down Tortoise droppings confined to three discs a...

    The HorrorPops - Amsterdamnation

    No doubt about it, The HorrorPops are headed for Hades. Not because the fearsome foursome of Holland-born hipster hellcats committed any mass murders (that we know of), but simply because we're certain they've somehow sold their souls to Satan. How e...

    Mary J. Blige - All you need to know

    Is Mary J. Blige still the reigning queen of hip-hop soul? It was looking iffy a few years ago, when she released her lukewarm Love & Life, an awkward attempt to reconcile her usual gritty themes of abusive relationships and ghetto drama with an incr...

    Centro-Matic - Hurricane hearts

    Although Missouri native Will Johnson splits his time among Undertow Orchestra, South San Gabriel, and solo projects, he's best known as the leader of Denton, Texas' Centro-Matic, a band that wraps Johnson's sometimes fragile (and sometimes raucous) ...

    Rakim - Better late than never

    When we heard Rakim (of Eric B. and Rakim fame) was coming to town, we bopped our collective heads while listening to his last release, 1999's The Master, and also cocked our heads in confusion. What's the dude doing going on an album tour for the fi...

    Rollins Band - But there will be irony and pecs, right?

    Henry Rollins' personal multimedia campaign, based on his ripped abs and smart ass, has made him the closest thing to a mainstream celebrity American punk rock has produced. But that extra-caffeinated personality obscures some genuine musical accompl...

    Dylan - The other one

    Long before he became known as the "Sultan of Sickness," the drum 'n' bass devotee known as Dylan began his career spinning records over the pirate radio airwaves in his native London. Since those quasi-legal days, this dope DJ has risen to internati...

    Funky Town - More syrup than jam

    Phoenix is a tough town for bands the city doesn't have a sound of its own (please don't count Gin Blossoms-style jangle rock), and you can count on one hand the number of bands that have made it outside of our desert metropolis. That wasn't always...

    Moniker Makeover - What's not in a name?

    Malibu "psych-folk-rock" band Simon Dawes and math-rock mavens Don Caballero might be on to something: Give your band a solo-sounding name, play full-bodied songs, and watch people scratch their heads trying to figure out who you're named after. (We'...

    Splitting Hairs - Comb to my window

    Do hairstyles influence musical styles? They do if you're Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge, whose various 'dos (and don'ts, in the case of her late '80s mullet) mirror her musical phases. Year of the Spiky Red Mullet (1988)...

    Hog Wylde - Close your eyes and think of metal

    If you asked Black Label Society guitarist/singer Zakk Wylde if he were a beer, what kind would he be, he'd probably heroically spout out the names of some hearty stout or high-octane Indian Pale Ale. Sadly, as evidenced on Black Label Society: The E...

    Pandora's Boss - Meet the guy behind the Web site that could be the MySpace.com of music

    Most casual music fans have that one person in their life they turn to before they buy new music, a guru who keeps up with the trends, reads the mags, goes to the shows, surfs the 'Net, and has taste that aligns with theirs. It could be a friend, a f...
