This week's music feature is on Meat Loaf. The chatty singer just released his 11th studio album, but had lots to say on other subject matters as well. Like for instance, what he would do differently if he were president. (Something rockstars consider often, I'm sure.) He dishes with us on SB 1070, music critics, and lots more.
Ever wonder just what happened to Hot Hot Heat between the time that they were signed to Sub Pop and showed so much promise until now? Have they lived up to their full potential? We'll give you our take.
Also, Jay Bennett gives us his perspective on the new Interpol record. (Our resident aesthetic atrophist didn't think too much of it.)
Plus we've got show previews for Eric Lindell, The Ataris, Yonder Mountain String Band, and Gary Hoey.
