    Why You Should Probably Go Ahead and Turn That Shit Down

    We all have one of those neighbors who likes to party and turns up their music a little bit too loud. Hell, Rocks Off has been that neighbor more than once. But you might want to think twice about giving the volume knob a little extra crank after t...

    BeauSoleil

    One of the hottest topics in Americana these days is the sizzling Cajun roots-music scene three hours east in Lafayette. As good as young bands like the Red Stick Ramblers, the Lost Bayou Ramblers and the Pineleaf Boys are, they owe a huge debt to B...

    Dave Alvin has been one of the enduring pillars of American roots music for the past 30 years. One reason the seasoned Californian remains evergreen is his knack for reinvention and reinterpretation; Alvin never lets his massive catalog or his stage...

    Metallica's Death Magnetic - Fade to Plastic via Guitar Hero III

    AC/DC: Black Ice

    AC/DC's first disc in eight years, the 15-song Black Ice, is also the longest in the Australians' 33-year career. Rip out much of its lazy middle third, and it starts approaching For Those About to Rock levels of goodness. Which means that if you, u...

    In the late 1980s, on the Galveston Bay side of the island, my radio receiver just barely picked up KPFT's Montrose-generated signal. Monday nights at 10 p.m., armed with two 90-minute tapes, I would hit "record" as soon as Dayglo Abortions kicked...
