    White Williams is No Average Joe

    Growing up in the Cleveland area, Joe Williams had the usual complaints about the city's music scene: There's no place for electro-pop fans to hear ass-shaking tunes, and no place for electro-pop nerds to play their ass-shaking tunes. Clevelanders l...

    Floating over to Monarch Lounge - New Money douches and Amazing Race winners at Monarch Lounge

    Contrary to popular belief, most millionaires are not dicks. That dubious honor often falls to those known as New Money. Monarch Lounge (5701 Main, inside Hotel Zaza) bouncer Ronnie Wilson politely clarifies: "The millionaires in here are laid-ba...

    Whodini, Big Daddy Kane, Kool Moe Dee, Willie D

    The same way the deluge of horrid rap-metal in the late '90s sent throngs of appalled rock fans scurrying for the comforts of Led Zeppelin and the Beatles -- sometimes for the first time -- hip-hop's present creative rut makes any flashback to the g...

    Lions

    Despite their staunch faithfulness to the blueprint laid by their stoner-rock forebears, Lions are actually interested in dynamics, an all-too-rare trait in bands of their beery ilk. This doesn't mean Lions have balladeer tendencies -- the guitars s...

    Bobby "Blue" Bland

    If the blues ever had its version of Frank Sinatra -- at least in terms of an almost instinctual appeal to the opposite sex -- it would be Bobby "Blue" Bland. He never fussed around much with concept albums or made much of a name for himself as a te...

    Yonder Mountain String Band

    Like the similar-minded jamgrass acts Railroad Earth and Leftover Salmon, this quartet from over yonder (Nederland, Colorado, near Denver) shoots for the mythical sound of Bill Monroe fronting the Grateful Dead, though their music is clearly more in...

    The Fiery Furnaces

    Thank God Fiery Furnaces siblings Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger were never married. Lord knows they've got enough in common with the White Stripes. A dose of creepy pseudo-incest would just be too much to bear, although I'm sure plenty of indie ki...

    Blue Mountain

    If, circa 1994, you were wearing flannel shirts and discussing the meaning of "alternative" ad infinitum, chances are you were drinking at least some of your beer to Blue Mountain. Uncle Tupelo may have been the poster child of the then-nascent alt-...

    Freddy Fender is 'El Bebop Kid'

    Has there ever been a more Houston-sounding music than that of Freddy Fender? Think about it. Songs like "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" and "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" were pan-Gulf Coastal music. Here you had a Mexican-American guy from th...

    Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend

    Call it an amendment to Godwin's Law: As reviews of Vampire Weekend accumulate, the probability they'll mention Paul Simon's Graceland approaches 100 percent. It's a lazy game of connect-the-dots, really. Graceland traces an MOR-shattering pilgrima...

    Various Artists: Juno: Music from the Motion Picture

    Too many movie tie-in collections put profits before cohesion. Tunes by widely disparate performers, most of whom just happen to record for companies affiliated with the film studio, wind up being tossed together willy-nilly in the hope that one of ...

    Billion Dollar Babies - Rappers and their ten-figure dreams

    Irrational exuberance is so widespread in hip-hop right now that Alan Greenspan might freak out -- provided he understands rap lyrics at all, that is. There's no two ways about it: Hip-hop sales stink. Album sales dropped 30 percent in 2007, a fi...

    You Should've Been There: Wild Moccasins and Sabra Laval at Boondocks

    I have to send a shout out to Ruthie Rodriguez at The Daily Cougar for her article about the Wild Moccasins, which led me to the quintet, who switch from pop to country-tinged rock with the energy you'd expect to see from a group of under-20s. ...
