    Worser - Worser (www.worser.net)

    What's worse than Worser? Lots of stuff, because Worser is way better than just okay. This six-song EP shows some serious prog-rock tendencies polyrhythmic timing changes, irregular tuning, unconventional chord progressions, and meandering melodies...

    Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different/Betty Davis (Light in the Attic)

    Betty Davis spent the 1970s setting a towering standard for future freak-funk broads. Her strong come-ons in the growly vox department could still scare modern wanna-fucks back to the Stone Age. The brief, volatile relationship with her then-hubby Mi...

    Dinosaur Jr. - Beyond (Fat Possum)

    Forget the Foo Fighters. The true champ when it comes to blending melody and mayhem is a tumultuous trio known as Dinosaur Jr. The prototypical hardcore heroes were making heads bop and torsos flail back when Dave Grohl was still taking his cues from...

    The Hold Steady - Good is all

    Colin Hay - Man still at work

    The downside of achieving massive success is becoming typecast. After leaving the airwaves, many of the original Star Trek cast found it difficult to secure work because of their association with the series; Chumbawamba has a 20-year career but is re...

    Citizen Cope - Get in the van

    When it comes to straddling genres, few artists have the crossover breadth of Citizen Cope (a.k.a. Clarence Greenwood). He's listed with granola-heavy Web site Jambase.com, and he certainly has the lazy acoustic-guitar appeal of Ben Harper or Jack Jo...

    Clutch - Now and forever

    One's interpretation of Clutch, the mostly metal and sometimes funk-soaked ensemble, depends on where in the game a listener was made hip to the band's interpretation of Led Zeppelin doing the nasty with Black Sabbath. Fans of their 1993 debut, Trans...

    Shock*Rock*Cock - Thursday just keeps getting better

    For a while, it seemed as if the only off-the-chain event going down over at the Rogue East, 423 North Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, was William Fucking Reed's rock 'n' roll dance party Shake! on Saturdays. Thankfully, this sad state of affairs has ...

    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 ...
