    Artist of the Week: Breyland

    Aftermath: Eagles of Death Metal at Meridian

    It's super-hard to intelligently review a party band. You can't very well sit in one corner of the venue, gently stroking your scholarly beard jotting down notes on each intricate riff and drum fill. In the interest of science, you have to immerse yo...

    Beyonc: I Am...Sasha Fierce

    A decade into her absurdly successful career, this could have been the time when Beyonc began indulging her creative impulses, taking on ill-conceived vanity projects and experimenting with other genres -- a welcome change from someone usually cont...

    Good Luck Academy

    Matthew Shipp Trio

    What kind of jazz do they play on KTRU? Matthew Shipp would be a good thumbnail answer. Shipp is known for the abstruse improvisations that are stereotypically attributed to avant-garde improvisation, and he is a longtime sideman to David S. Ware, k...

    Alejandra Guzman

    Mexican rocker Alejandra Guzman is the Latin answer to Tina Turner -- without the getting-beat-up-by-Ike part. The 40-year-old singer's got the same cast-iron legs, the same spiky hair and the same musical style built on deep, throaty vocals with a ...

    Justin Townes Earle

    It's not easy to live up to a celebrated namesake -- especially two of them. But Justin Townes Earle manages to make a name for himself by carving his own niche out of the country created by father Steve Earle and godfather Townes Van Zandt, plus a ...

    Raul Malo

    Fans of great singing should flock to Raul Malo's first album of new material in seven years, Lucky One (due March 3). The record smartly covers a gamut of styles, from the hard-twang thang Malo did so well fronting the Mavericks to cheesy pop songs...

    As half of Skinny Puppy, Nivek Ogre (or just Ogre, or Kevin Ogilvie) created a much-imitated, arresting blend of industrial and hard rock, belched forth amid bewildering onstage '80s theatrics. A showman from the beginning, Ogre quickly used his the...

    The Killers: Day & Age

    Ice Cube: Raw Footage

    Once upon a time (in the projects, yo), Ice Cube was easily one of the most respected rappers in the world; the prototype for East Coast props and West Coast love, aided by a scowl that spoke volumes without saying a word. Then, the guy who once san...

    Chatter's Ever-So-HandyAC/DCtionary - Rock Around the Clock

    Hands down, AC/DC are 2008's comeback kids. The Australian hard-rockers' first album in eight years, the Walmart-exclusive Black Ice, trailed only Lil Wayne in first-week sales. It's the band's best since 1990's The Razor's Edge to boot. Even aft...

    Afropop Arrives - Motherland music hit a fever pitch with U.S. bands this year

    Who knew back in January, when Vampire Weekend tinkered with soukous's guitar-driven dance rhythms on its self-titled debut, the band would set the tone for the next 12 months? In many ways, 2008 was the year Afropop fully cracked the American mus...
