    Big Yellow Taxi: Six Songs About Taxicabs

    Last Night: Sleigh Bells At Warehouse Live

    Sleigh Bells Warehouse Live April 18, 2012 Sleigh Bells has to be one of the most polarizing bands in recent memory. To really get a bead on a band these days, you have to go to iTunes. So I looked up Sleigh Bells. "How did this get made?" wondered...

    Taylor Momsen Likes It Loud and Rough

    One minute she was Cindy Lou Who in Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The next thing you know, 18-year-old Taylor Momsen was fronting a hard-rock band called The Pretty Reckless. The group's debut album, Light Me Up (2010), did some nice...

    Tanya Tucker

    If you take a good long listen to Tanya Tucker's singles like "Delta Dawn" and "Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone)," you will find yourself flabbergasted that a teenage girl got away with any of it, never mind the men who signed her checks. ...

    Pedestrian Deposit

    Marilyn Manson

    Born Villain, Marilyn Manson's first album since 2009's The High End of Low, marks his debut as a cheeky pop-culture gawker, a far cry from where he was just a decade and a half ago. He's not the snarling, scorched-earth God of Fuck from his '90s par...

    Six-String Pawn Stars: Top 10 Famous Stolen Guitars

    It's an age-old story in rock and roll: Any guitar worth a damn seems to get run off with sooner or later. It's just too easy to turn quality instruments over for fast cash, and junkies, bums and other broke-asses can't seem to help themselves. Legen...

    Project Armageddon: The Phillip Glass Of Metal

    In many ways the album is brilliant. Three-person metal is hard to pull off as it either degenerates into some kind of heavy super-punk, or reaches for a bigger sound that it simply cannot accomplish. Tides of Doom maintains its own peculiar identit...
