    Metal Health - The freshest stuff is underground

    In e-mails and comments on my blog, Ear Infection, I've gotten into it with the metal kids in town. They've criticized me for my opinions about metal or for my not paying attention to it. It's generally people like Marshall Beck, a musician in severa...

    Mindcrime and Punishment - Here's what happened

    Even armed with an illustrated libretto, it's hard to divine most rock opera story lines. Before Ken Russell's film adaptation of Tommy revealed the importance of champagne, Marilyn Monroe, and baked beans to the plot, betcha just assumed it was abou...

    Housed - Watered-down Scottsdale

    Duders. That's what the Coach House in Scottsdale had to offer on Saturday, May 19. (Click here for more photos.) The ratio of post-adolescent ex-football players to cutesy Scottsdale ladies was about 2 to 1. Although the vibe was relaxed, we spied s...

    Sending Out an S.O.S. - The U.S. Postal Service's rate hikes are endangering music's free press

    Jackson Ellis is freaking out. In late April, the 26-year-old publisher of the independent music and fiction magazine Verbicide got word that starting on July 15, his shipping rates would increase by somewhere between 30 and 40 percent. "It's not ...

    Job for a Cowboy - Genesis (Metal Blade)

    Job for a Cowboy sounds like a good name for a country band, but this Glendale combo is in the vanguard of today's extreme metal movement. The intense grindcore/death metal sound of Doom, their indie EP, and their relentless touring has generated a r...

    Big Vinny & The Cattle Thieves - Addiction and Subtraction (May Cause Dizziness)

    The battle cry of the rawest punk rock and proto-hardcore bands circa 1978-84 was "louder, faster, shorter" and the attitude behind that ethos was about shearing away rock and roll's accumulated excesses (tedious and/or showoff instrumental soloing, ...

    The Pbes - Live and Unruly (www.thepubesaz.com)

    After hearing the debut disc by local lesbian punk/dance trio The Pbes, the only thing left to say is "Oh, hell, fuck yeah!" Led by local folkstress Cameo Hill (who becomes Ivana Pluchya in this band), The Pbes combine the bouncy bad-girl vibe of a...

    Tori Amos - American Doll Posse (Sony)

    Tori Amos is the blue-chip stock of the female singer-songwriter boom of the '90s: Investing in her art has only become more expensive (read: demanding) over the years. With hooks disappearing, her albums have grown longer, while her lyrics have turn...

    Wilco - Sky Blue Sky (Nonesuch)

    If Wilco put together a greatest hits album, it probably would contain only two or three songs from Sky Blue Sky and although that may sound like a criticism, it's actually more of a testament to the band's impressive body of work. Whereas 2004's A...

    Bjrk - Volta (Atlantic)

    Although her flamboyant outfits may never be polite, Bjrk's last few albums certainly were. The ice-crystal percussion and melodies on Vespertine were stunning but mannered, like an immaculately decorated parlor, while the nearly a cappella Medulla ...

    Get Down! To Brass Tacks - Here's the beat

    Total chaos. Upon initial inspection, that's what the songs of local duo Get Down! To Brass Tacks are built upon synthesizers careen through the compositions like a blind man driving a Mack truck through a carnival of cowbells and fatass basslines,...

    The Album Leaf - Across the universe

    Jimmy LaValle has made music in the past with some interesting bands (Tristeza and Black Heart Procession chief among them), but the best thing that ever happened to him and listeners, too was when members of cosmic art-rockers Sigur Rs discover...

    Voxtrot - Brit and polish

    Voxtrot's eponymous 2006 EP may be the best indie-rock debut since, oh, the Pixies' Come On Pilgrim. Each of the five songs on Voxtrot is nigh on perfect a crystalline distillation of the band's love of '80s British pop. That's not to say that the ...

    Matt and Kim - New York state of mind-blowing

    Matt and Kim are just totally fun. Totally. Like a power-pop take on They Might Be Giants, with a (simulated) accordion and everything. They're even from Brooklyn, where they've developed a loyal following at loft parties, basements, art galleries, a...

    The Mary Timony Band - Kiss her sass

    Two songs on The Shapes We Make show the influence moving back to Washington, D.C., has had on Mary Timony's writing. The spritely "Sharpshooter" as close as the ex-Helium frontwoman gets to out-and-out indie-pop these days sees wildlife turning ...

    Markus Schulz - Return of the non-native

    Club DJs of the P-Town, we feel your pain. You endlessly work the same local joints week after endless week, slaving over the turntables and beat-matching your brains out for a bunch of selfish and snotty hotties, all the while dreaming of blowing th...

    Word Play - Its easy, mkay

    I've got a friend who showed up at the bar recently with his arm in a sling and stitches on his chin from an ass-whippin'. I asked him if he'd deserved it, and he said he didn't think so. But some dude bigger than him was talking bad about his girlfr...

    Homme Sweet Homme - DJs and drinks on a Thursday night

    Yes, it seems as if we can't get away from the typical DJ . . . spinning relatively hot tunes and taking his headphones way too seriously in an obvious, pathetic attempt to get laid. So, it was great to hit Homme Lounge on a Thursday night, when th...
