    Suicide Circus - Suicide Circus (self-released)

    You've got to be intrigued when singer/guitarist Todd Staples says his band, Suicide Circus, is "along the lines as if Skynyrd and Pantera had an illegitimate baby and Zakk Wylde was the weird uncle that came around to baby-sit." But listening to Sui...

    Lee Rocker - Racin' the Devil (Alligator Records)

    Its title an obvious tip of the blue cap to the great Gene Vincent, Racin' the Devil finds Lee Rocker stepping out from the shadow of Brian Setzer's pompadour, planting his upright bass at center stage, and tearin' it up on vocals. And the way he sin...

    Nashville Pussy - Playing to our weaknesses

    An ugly guy could do a whole lot worse than to surround himself with half-dressed hot chicks one of whom breathes fire if he's looking for attention in an underground scene swimming in ugly guys putting a punk-rock spin on AC/DC's greatest hits. ...

    Ladytron - A three-dimensional sound

    Is it just us, or is Ladytron sounding more human? The Liverpudlian neo-Fab Four seems to have had a crush on shoegazer and Stereolab since the release of its 2001 album 604, but 2005's Witching Hour, Ladytron's latest LP, marked a significant sonic ...

    Melissa Ferrick - Just Melissa Ferrick

    Melissa Ferrick's been quietly fighting her way out of pigeonholes for the past few years. First, she got branded with the "granola/Lilith Fair crowd" label, not because she actually played at Lilith Fair in 1999, but because she's a female singer-so...

    Method Man - Rapping up a glorious career

    As one of Wu-Tang Clan's most popular members, Method Man is a '90s hip-hop icon. "Hey, you, get off my cloud!" from "Method Man" is a hip-hop quotable as lasting as the Rolling Stones track from which he borrowed it, as are other Meth-isms like "Can...

    The Vibrators - Bring extra batteries

    Boasting one of punk's essential band names, The Vibrators played their first show 30 years ago, when punk was still a baby pulling the safety pins out of its diaper, supporting The Stranglers. By the end of that first year, they had a classic single...

    Rock Squatter - Got futon?

    If, as he suggests with the title of his new CD And Now That I'm in Your Shadow, Damien Jurado stands behind his whisper-voiced folk brethren like Sufjan Stevens and Iron & Wine's Sam Beam, he undoubtedly moves front and center when it comes to deliv...

    Second-Hand Perspective - Expanding the historical reach of traditional music

    In the opening track of What the Toll Tells, Adam Stephens of San Francisco's Two Gallants plays the role of a murderer facing the gallows, yowling like a tortured young Black Francis over country-punk guitars while keeping counsel with the dead. He'...

    Underground Aesthetic - Daedelus' brand of eclectic hip-hop is a true change of pace

    Alfred Weisberg-Roberts, a.k.a. Daedelus, looks like a man from another time. He adheres to a style he calls "Victorian dandyism," and sometimes he wears clothes that make him look like an 19th-century British gentleman. He grows his sideburns thick ...

    Fat Rhabit - Self-Titled (Self-released)

    For a band named after a slang term for a Tommy Chong-sized spliff, Fat Rhabit doesn't sound much like typical stoner rock. In fact, it doesn't sound like typical anything. On its six-song, self-titled EP, which was recorded in Grand Rapids, Michigan...

    Jeremy Enigk - World Waits (Reincarnate Music)

    Life's gotta be hard if you're Jeremy Enigk. No matter what he does, the singer/songwriter's new music will always be compared to his emo-core pioneering of '90s Sub-Pop powerhouse act Sunny Day Real Estate, and The Fire Theft, which Enigk fronted sh...

    Mushroomhead - Savior Sorrow (Mega Force)

    The band wears ghoulish masks and uniforms, has an eight-man lineup, and plays a metal mashup that incorporates elements of hip-hop, industrial, and hardcore. Sounds a lot like Slipknot. But people who write Mushroomhead off as a Slipknot rip-off pro...

    The Decemberists - The Crane Wife (Capitol)

    Mofro - 'Fro better blues
