    Sugarcult - Less annoying to the old folks

    Listening to tracks off Sugarcult's new album, Lights Out (V2), you would never know this is the same group of four men that annoyed MTV viewers senseless with its Van Wilder-tie-in video for "Bouncing Off the Walls" a few years back. Two albums an...

    James McMurtry - Lyric poetry

    Let's face it. Most singer-songwriter music is lukewarm high school poetry without the hooks and energy that seem to make the lukewarm high school poetry you get with Fall Out Boy or even Ashlee Simpson that much easier to swallow. Then, there's ...

    Busdriver - Sleeping soon on a floor near you

    Over the course of the past decade, and with four highly innovative and sadly underrated indie albums, L.A.-based hip-hop artist Busdriver built a reputation in the underground by spitting poignant rhymes with a sense of humor set against fiercel...

    Underground Thursdays - Flame and fortune

    Back Country - Original spin

    Spend one of your Sunday nights, as I did recently, at the Yucca Tap Room in Tempe, and you're likely to see what will at first seem like an anomaly a pretty, diminutive, 30-year-old woman named Dana Armstrong sitting behind two turntables playing ...

    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...

    Hard Luck of the Irish - Low-down, dirty Shane

    Shane MacGowan's continued existence on the planet is nothing short of a miracle that would test the resolve of even the most determined atheist. I've personally witnessed the notorious Pogues front man who'll turn 49 on Christmas Day ingest an i...

    Stoked - Breakin' the Rules (Lock & Key Records)

    There's a goofy little beach scene on the album cover that could fool you into thinking these guys made a surf-rock record. But it's nothing like that, really. Sure, they do a track called "Surf" that starts off as a shameless "Pipeline" knockoff, bu...

    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...

    Jucifer - If Thine Enemy Hunger (Relapse)

    Surrounded by mountains of amps stacked and cranked to unhealthy heights, Jucifer can shatter half of generic modern metal's fibulas with just its feedback. The coed Atlanta duo literally rattles plaster loose, and drummer Edgar Livengood pounds the ...

    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 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...

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

    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...

    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 ...
