    KRS-One and Marley Marl - Hip-Hop Lives (Koch Records)

    With stunning production from old rival Marley Marl, KRS-One delivers a sharp retort to Nas' recent proclamation that Hip Hop Is Dead but not without kicking some dirt on gangsta culture. The highlights on this 12-track disc are many, including "No...

    Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist (Marthas Music/Reprise)

    Those of you hoping Smashing Pumpkins' comeback record is an unmitigated disaster will be disappointed: It's not. Those of you afraid that head Pumpkin Billy Corgan made another The Future Embrace (his ber-synthpop, somewhat cheesy solo album) will ...

    Interpol - Our Love to Admire (Capitol Records)

    Interpol's major label debut, Our Love to Admire, isn't as monochrome (or monotonous) as its previous two albums. "Pioneer to the Falls" is arguably the richest song they've ever recorded, a track that channels the stormy textures of the Cure's Porno...

    Beastie Boys - The Mix-Up (Capitol Records)

    Since the Beastie Boys released License to Ill more than two decades ago, all paths into New York nostalgia and downtown have led back to them. So what's a guy named Adrock, or MCA, or Mike D to do? No wonder, with The Mix-Up, they've got nothing to ...

    What Laura Says Thinks and Feels - Curl up, baby

    You know that warm, contented feeling you get when it's woundingly cold outside and you're snuggled up in your favorite blanket sipping cocoa and watching Roseanne reruns? You can get nearly the same effect, minus the calories and eyestrain, from the...

    Motion City Soundtrack - Vocal heroes

    Ever since Motion City Soundtrack frontman Justin Pierce announced his trepidation for what is to come on the insanely catchy "The Future Freaks Me Out," from the Minneapolis fivesome's 2003 debut, I Am the Movie (Epitaph), it's been nearly impossibl...

    Benni Hemm Hemm - Very green

    Kajak the sophomore long-player from namesake/frontman Benedikt H. Hermannsson's Icelandic easy-listening band may not be the textbook definition of a guilty indie pleasure, but it's close. The lyrics aren't in English; the cover art looks like i...

    Snow Patrol - Awaiting the avalanche

    Neither a critic's band nor a super-popular radio sensation, Gary Lightbody's Glasgow group was, once upon a time, just a struggling indie-rock outfit, more Belle & Sebastian insular than Coldplay make-out music. By the time their breakthrough record...

    Movement Mondays - Is this going to be on the vinyl?

    The hipster headquarters known as Glam, 3174 East Indian School Road, isn't just a hotspot for seeing faux-hawked emo kids making out with chicks wearing American Apparel on a glowing, multicolored dance floor straight outta Saturday Night Fever. The...

    The Second Coming

    Ordinarily I'm a pretty blasphemous motherfucker; Jesus and I haven't had much of a rapport since I was in short pants. But, like an early Christmas miracle, I got a little bit of the Lord up in my hot little hands recently that, although its unlikel...

    Fat Tracks

    Last month Casey Lynch reviewed Fat Rhabit's self-titled debut EP, giving the local rockers a pretty glowing assessment. Just this morning, the band's manager Sean Shepherd sent over a couple new tunes from the Rhabit's upcoming full-length "rock ope...

    Caliente!

    Speaking of trite, I really couldn't come up with a better title for this blog post; you'd think I'd have learned more Espanol in my eleven years in Arizona... but I digress. I just got my hands on the latest release by Still Alive, a reggaeton group...

    Stink Hustlin'

    Once in a while we music critics get lucky and an especially stinky CD ends up in our hands... an easy target, something genuinely bad. I scored that recently, when I got my hands on some tracks by PHX rapper/R&B-er Sonny Long, whose debut album The ...

    Andy-Capped Parking

    Robot Rock

    Way back in February of 2005, I wrote a column saying that Army of Robots had succeeded Tucson's The Bled as the best band in Arizona (in my opinion, of course), and that they'd "fucked up the whole paradigm and established a new gold standard for Ar...
