    Beat-ing Off

    Local producer Aaron Roberts released a tricky little EP of booty shaking house beats called Hip-Hop Stop on Nashville label Photo Records this week. The "hip-hop" reference is deceiving - this is bass-heavy house with chopped-up vocals and dancefloo...

    A "Dreamy" Display - Local label showcase brings it

    As far as showoffs go, Arizona is an unforgivably cocky offender. First, we get all high and mighty about that great, glorified geological ass-crack up north, then we start trottin' out the "heavies" to campaign against Lyndon Johnson, and now it see...

    Sonny Rhodes - Baptized in blues

    Some 50-odd years ago, deep in the bowels of Texas, a young sharecropper's son was hired by a white family to stand silently in the parlor and crank the arm on the Victrola. As the strains of Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith pumped out of the horn and into...
