    J Dilla - The Shining (Bbe)

    Rap producer James "J Dilla" Yancey, who died of lupus at age 32 in February, didn't yet have the industry clout of peers like the Neptunes or Kanye West, but he sure had their respect, working with everybody from Ghostface Killah to Janet Jackson. T...

    The O Show - Look out above

    Karen O, the focal point of any Yeah Yeah Yeahs show, works the stage like Iggy Pop in fishnets, a force of unnatural nature overdoing every gesture, every post-"Rock Lobster" vocal tic, until you'd have to be a fool to turn away. She's part train wr...

    The "Up Close and Personal" Tour - Or far away and anonymous, depending on your seats

    The lineup for the hip-hop/R&B-flavored "Up Close and Personal" extravaganza is everything the Arizona Diamondbacks weren't this year young, hungry, and well able to bash out the hits. Juelz Santana is the 23-year-old, Harlem-born rapper who first ...

    Viva Voce - Get Yr Blood Sucked Out (Barsuk Records)

    Marriage is all about communication, compromise, and . . . psychedelic indie rock. At least it is for Kevin and Anita Robinson, otherwise known as Viva Voce, who have popped out four albums of the stuff since 1998. The Portland, Oregon, couple's la...

    Blur - Blink and you'll miss it

    Art Brut - One-disc wonders

    Last fall, Art Brut was the hotness du jour, the toast of all things hipster and good. A year later, the South London band is still touring behind its now-old album, Bang Bang Rock & Roll. The quintet, whose album was issued this spring by New York ...

    Queensrche - Ax on a plane

    Queensrche has prompted many deep questions in the course of its 20 years as a band: What does it mean to be silently lucid? Has anyone ever been noisily lucid? Is Dr. X noisily lucid? (Ronnie James Dio certainly is.) Further: Does "conceptual metal...

    Paris James - Death Letter (Dreamvox)

    The first CD from local bluesician Paris James harks back to the back-porch country blues of the 1920s, when players like Blind Blake and Blind Lemon Jefferson were finger-picking through a mix of folk, gospel hymns, and Delta blues. The sounds of sp...

    Frank Black - Now Pixie-free!

    Frank Black could be living the easy life, riding the public's insatiable thirst for the Pixies through another big nostalgia tour. But he'd clearly prefer to be doing his own thing. Consider the staggering volume of solo material he's been able to c...

    The Kingdom - K1 (Arena Rock)

    As a bed of acoustic guitar is lazily strummed below Charles Westmoreland's vocal gymnastics on "Driver," the opening track off Portland-based band The Kingdom's new LP, one may recall another NW purveyor of bliss-pop, The Shins. But it becomes clear...

    Living With Post-War - M. Ward's recipe for political change: Let's ignore the president

    Luca - Sick of Love (Funzalo Records)

    Nick Luca, front man of his namesake band Luca, sounds a little confused, and like he might need a hug. The Tucson group's latest album, Sick of Love, has an abundance of lovelorn laments and a strange mixture of rock genres. Luca and his bandmates, ...

    Kingfish Fiasco - sleeping and i hear you (self-released)

    The guys of Kingfish Fiasco are weird. They cite beer and porn among their musical influences, but that is probably because they frequent the Yucca Tap Room in Tempe. They also claim to have bought their drummer, John Earl Gilmore, for $20 on eBay. A...

    The Creeping Nobodies - Warning: shallow venue

    Toronto-based post-punkers The Creeping Nobodies might have started as a one-off collaboration at a tribute show for The Fall, but the band's come a long way from imitating The Fall's Mark E. Smith for kicks. The Creeping Nobodies celebrate their fif...
