    Haven James - Rusty's Waltz (Self-released)

    Based on the CD Rusty's Waltz, it's hard to tell where Jen Powelson stops and the band Haven James starts, meaning that while there is some additional instrumentation on the disc tiny doses of fiddle, mandolin, cello, and some very Mark Knopfler-es...

    The Sonic Thrills - Get Up! (Truxton Records)

    A hot, fat bucket of garage, '60s soul, and rock rock rock 'n' roll that tantalizes the jaded tongue with potent drops of the Kinks, the Detroit Cobras, and the Sonics that's right, the Sonics (why yes, it is a strangely similar name). The suavo-se...

    Son de la Frontera - Cal (World Village Records)

    Think of the music played by Spain's Son de la Frontera as pure acoustic music that does not rely on any studio gimmicks. The five-piece group from Morn de la Frontera has a sound marked by the presence of the trs (a three-stringed instrument commo...

    The White Stripes - Icky Thump (Warner Bros./WEA)

    While absorbing the Blueshammer ersatz and pheromone-scented metallurgy of Icky Thump, the White Stripes' sixth record, it's hard not to long for the candy-striped sibs who once sat in that little room, working on something good. Remember them? Way b...

    Linkin Park - Minutes to Midnight (Warner Bros./WEA)

    The men of Linkin Park seem awfully insecure. Minutes to Midnight is stuffed with take-us-seriously gestures, including the presence of producer Rick Rubin and liner notes that couldn't be needier if they'd been written by Sally Field. For instance,...

    Fountains of Wayne - Traffic and Weather (Virgin Records)

    It's been four years since Fountains of Wayne's last studio album, but the wait has been more than worth it, because FOW produces incredibly well-constructed pop. Besides a gift for hummable melodies, the group's bite-size vignettes of middle-class a...

    W.O.M.B. - New baby alert

    W.O.M.B. has always been difficult to define. Ever since the Valley band's debut LP, 1999's Warriors of Make Believe, the group has been producing thematically diverse music that ranges from the playful and poppy to the haunting and experimental. Now...

    Nick Nicholson - Country for country

    There's nothing "alt" about the country music played by Phoenix resident Nick Nicholson. The Tennessee transplant plays straight up, rockin' country, a combination of twang and bang influenced by the likes of Conway Twitty and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Nichols...

    TrEmUlaNtS - What they love

    Music that bears the most repeated listenings hits you on an abstract, moth-to-a-naked-light bulb level. The attraction may be lyrical ambiguity, sonic submersion, a spirited count-off or just the decibel ring of a voice around the circumference of y...

    Guy Forsyth - Peripatetic picker

    By all accounts, the live shtick of this experienced Austin roots rock veteran is designed to astound and flatten. A qualified, working Joe-type Renaissance man, Guy Forsyth sings, dances, slings an ax, waxes deadly with a harp, and even wields the o...

    Rusted Root - More than the company they keep

    Rusted Root is the type of band you take shit for liking from people who've never seen them simply because of the associations. Though they do frequently appear at jam-band festivals, there's a lot more nuance, synthesis, and creativity here than y...

    DJ Larry Mac - Return of the mixmaster

    Turns out that not everything stays in Vegas after all. To wit: DJ Larry Mac, who ditched the PHX in 2005 for a radio gig in Sin City but pulled a prodigal son. He recently returned to the city where he made a name for himself running legendary (and ...

    Pony Up

    Let me start out by saying this: I love the Silver Pony. In fact, everyone I know that drinks at the Pony loves the Pony. I guess one of the positive consequences of urban sprawl (okay, the only positive) is discovering places that once were consider...

    Eyes on the Prize - Bid for the big time

    In a time when the opportunity for unsigned musicians to jump-start careers via MySpace seems already to have come and gone, the steadily building success of Tempe's Eyes Set To Kill is both encouraging and confounding. Since posting a profile on...

    Hookers and Blow

    I know what you're thinking, but no, this isn't a recap of how I spent the weekend. It's almost the holidays so I had to forego the hookers this time around. Rather, this post is marking a milestone of sorts for Radio Free America, soon to be known a...
