    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...

    The Revolution Will be Interwebbed

    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...

    Morning Wormwood

    This local self-described "dustcore" outfit called Wormwood Brothers sent me a beautiful little track called "Trigger Happy" that reminds me of shoegazers with a taste for y'all-ternative bands like Wilco, Son Volt, and their ilk. It's pretty fucking...

    Weirdo Update

    "Two piece, bass and drums. So as long as our weight holds constant we keep a balance. Usually the best sounds, ideas and songs come from bands who just started so hence we force ourselves to forget any advancement. The world needs another Joplin bi...

    Says Who??

    I'm sure you're all aware that tomorrow is election day, which I wouldn't ordinarily type about up in this piece, but it's made for some strange endorsements this year. Check out the video here, and you'll see local music scene players like Jim Adkin...

    Country Rogue - She's with-with the band

    "What hip-hop do you know that has a Kansas country girl singing?" Mynce, the turntablist for local hip-hop group the Smob, asks me this over beers the day after the band's CD-release party. The answer is none. I don't know of many female arti...
