    Melissa Cohee - Expression (Beatlocker)

    What hath Nile Rodgers wrought? Or was it Giorgio Moroder? Whoever was the wizard who figured out how to make records without musicians has a lot to answer for. True, sampled beats and programmed rhythms come a lot cheaper than those who can actually...

    Jeff Dahl - Battered Stuff: One Acoustic Mother (Steel Cage)

    Although Dahl's the closest thing the Valley has to a punk elder statesman, the bulk of Jeff Dahl's extensive "three chords and a bad attitude" discography has always had more of a kinship with the glam precursors of punk (Mott the Hoople, the New Yo...

    Ty Lusk - Live at Club Red (www.tylusk.com)

    Obadiah Parker - The covers that reveal

    Last month's YouTube phenomenon Alanis Morrisette's parody of "My Humps" revealed what we all suspected, that Fergie's ode to her lady lumps just doesn't stand up to lyrical scrutiny. The marvelous thing about last year's YouTube phenomenon, Obad...

    Walter Alias - It's the end of the world as they sing it

    A band that calls its album Examples of the Cataclysmic is obviously thinking big. Walter Alias, a Kansas City transplant from Branson, Missouri, describes its sweeping sound as "cinematic," and it's not hard to imagine the quartet's swelling choruse...

    The Clientele - Like marshmallows, but not fluffy

    Last year, in these very pages, I noted that the fabulously suave, poetic, and pillowy English band The Clientele "pulls off the rare, swell trick of reminding you of literally dozens of artists the late Arthur Lee, Dream Syndicate, Mercury Rev, Fe...

    Bach to Basics - Because it's not Taco Bell's Cannon

    About a year ago, a former girlfriend asked me why this town seemed so culture-less. She's from Los Angeles and is the sort of girl who likes to dress up and go to the ballet. "In L.A., people our age get dressed up and go to the symphony; you'll see...

    Confessions of an Ex-Juggalo - White-on-white crime

    In the suburbs outside Detroit during 1994 and 1995 the years I followed horror-rap duo Insane Clown Posse's rise to local infamy there was, I now realize, nothing more uncool than an ICP fan. In any parking lot, in any neighborhood that wasn't a...

    Getting Harry - We love the Connick
