    Scott H. Biram - One man can be more than enough

    John Fogerty and Willie Nelson - The relevance in the room

    It would be difficult to imagine two artists who better embody the spirit of authentic Americana than John Fogerty and Willie Nelson. Each has established an indelible imprint, from the relentless refrains that framed Fogerty's Creedence Clearwater R...

    Mew - And the Glass Handed Kites (Sony)

    DJ Irene - Booth life

    Authority Solo - Conviction is arresting

    It's not a new phenomenon, but lately the perceptions of what punk rock is and is not have irritated the hell out of me. Do three chords, a faux-hawk, and a 14-year-old's snotty voice make a band punk rock? Is there a formula? Does it have to be loud...

    Those Damned Devil Bands - Quayle eggs

    Hello, Dan Quayle here. As the 44th Vice President of the United States of America, I all but coined the phrase "family values" back in 1992, when I famously criticized Murphy Brown for having a child out of wedlock. Sure, it was a fictional characte...

    Remarkably lovely U.K. trio The Clientele, whose sound primarily falls somewhere between the bright psych-pop of late-'60s Britain and the lush jangle-chime of L.A.'s '80s Paisley Underground scene, pulls off the rare, swell trick of reminding you of...
