    Ed Petterson - The New Punk Blues of Ed Petterson (Split Rock Records)

    Petterson was born in New York City but lives in Nashville. He's not a punk, nor is his music bluesy, so the title of the CD is puzzling. Maybe he's just venting some leftover NYC attitude. Petterson's music is folky, funky and country, with a skewed...

    Trans Am - Sex Change (Thrill Jockey)

    Sex Change starts off re-exploring Trans Am's journeys on the Autobahn, as the echo of Afrobeat guitars washes over the lull of a trance-inducing synth riff. But they move on quickly while keeping the synth front and center on "North East Rising Sun,...

    Lucinda Williams - West (Lost Highway)

    Well, Lucinda Williams' first release in four years won't be making many people's lists of Least Depressing Albums of 2007. Someone took her joy again. And this time, there's no sign that joy is coming back, as Williams struggles through the heartach...

    Naked Aggression - Cheeseheads for peace

    Few hard-edged punk bands were as blatantly pissed off about politics in the '90s than Naked Aggression. Formed in 1990 by singer Kirsten Patches and guitarist Phil Suchomel among the breweries and cheese factories of Madison, Wisconsin, Naked Aggres...

    Winger - Kipping it real

    After scoring two platinum albums and one massive hair-metal anthem (that ode to statutory rape titled "Seventeen"), Winger officially crashed and burned with the commercial failure of 1993's Pull. And while most rock fans had written off the band, w...

    Deerhoof

    See ya never, Blonde Redhead! The top spot for bands made up of one sprightly Asian singer plus two experimentally oriented white guys has been usurped by Northern California spazzers Deerhoof. Last year was Deerhoof's year. Finally, plenty of show-g...

    MSTRKRFT, and John Digweed - Creamy dance

    MSTRKRFT's "Easy Love" video will get you fired if you watch it online while you're at work. Nobody in the video has sex, and, unfortunately, there's no nudity, but the vowel-shunning Canadian production duo churns out a heavily disco-influenced, gri...

    The Who - It's them, that's who

    Okay, so that comeback album never quite came back, stalling out on the quality trail somewhere between It's Hard and Roger Daltrey's latest solo album. And the band's down to two crucial members from the glory days of "Substitute" and "I Can See for...

    A Bone Chip Off the Ol' Carcass - The pathological song

    The pioneering British gore-metal band Carcass may've disbanded in 1995, but its legacy has never been stronger. In fact, not content merely to borrow from the masters, an entire new subgenre of unashamed copycat bands has arisen in Carcass' wake, ea...

    Big Pete Pearson - I'm Here Baby (Blue Witch Records)

    Born in 1936 in Jamaica, raised in Texas, and based in Phoenix, Big Pete Pearson is proof that the blues (as a flourishing, vibrant form) is not dying of old age and House of Blues-bred respectability. Likely among the last of the breed of Chicago-st...
