    Like Buddy Rich When We Fly Off The Handle

    The joke goes like this... A drummer dies and goes to Heaven. When he gets up to St. Peter at the pearly gates, far off in the distance he hears this incredible drumming, truly spectacular drumming. "Is that Buddy Rich?" he asks the angel. "No," s...

    The Grand Theatre - Old '97s snap back with new album.

    "I just might get drunk tonight, and burn the nightclub down," Old 97's front man Rhett Miller sings on "Nightclub," from the Old 97's 1997 album Too Far to Care. In those days, that was textbook behavior for the Dallas-formed alt-country band's rauc...

    The Way of The Vaselines - Indie-pop cult heroes never planned to reunite.

    In many ways, The Vaselines are more a legend than a band -- three years, two EPs, one proper album, some of the most singularly enigmatic indie-pop ever put to tape, and that's it. But then Sub Pop's 20th-anniversary festival in July 2008 brought...

    Capital Steps - Dispatches from ACL 2010

    Band of Horses (Sunday): They sound to us like the angelic sides of the Beach Boys mating with My Morning Jacket or Drive-By Truckers. It's pretty, peaceful, serene stuff, and was a good mix with the rapidly setting sun. The band covered Cee-Lo's rec...

    Houston instrumental rock quartet Co-Pilot describes its sound as "the soundtrack for an epic battle," and we have to agree. The band, around in name since 2001 but with this lineup only active since 2005, has a woozy, Explosions in the Sky-type soun...

    Wanda Jackson

    When you first discover "Queen of Rockabilly" Wanda Jackson, you'll spend about a month in awe of her sinful growl. Easily one of the most underrated female instruments in rock and country, Jackson's voice can sound shredded by the daggers of love on...

    Chris Isaak

    Because Chris Isaak's pompadoured mug might as well be the picture of eternal California youth, it's a little discomfiting to realize that the Golden State singer-songwriter is now four years past his 50th birthday -- and that it's been almost 20 yea...

    Walmart's Greatest Hits... Or Maybe Not (NSFW)

    The Olsen Twins: Now Chopped And Screwed!

    And it's made a great leap forward into video. Now not only are the jams slowed and throwed, but so are the pictures. Nowhere has this been pulled off more hilariously, nightmarishly and some would say Donnie Darko-ishly than on this remake of an ol...
