    Drenched in Blog: Nick Cave Digs Lazarus

    2008 is but a week away, but it's already sounding brutal. Next year we can expect new releases from the Mars Volta, a Flight of the Conchords studio record, and a Rick Rubin-helmed Metallica disc. Plus a new Eagles of Death Metal record that I will ...

    Sanity Claus: Separating Holiday-Music Gifts from Seasonal Disorders

    A slew of CDs come courtesy of notable names, with some cashing in on relatively recent popularity and others representing artists hoping against hope for some sales this Christmas. Falling into the former category is KT Tunstall, whose new EP, Have ...

    Drenched in Blog: Top Ten Albums of 2007

    As previously threatened, I have devised my list of the best albums of 2007. It wasn't easy. I had to ignore some sales calls at work to make this. Sorry, Weld Tooling out of Tulsa, Daddy has to make his list. Ah, day jobs. Can't live with them, can'...

    Get Lit: Doo Wop: The Music, The Times, The Era, by "Cousin Brucie" Morrow with Rich Maloof

    to late 1950s. But as any PBS pledge-drive viewer will tell you, love for the music of groups like the Flamingos, Platters, Five Satins, Crests, Drifters, Spaniels and a host of acts with bird names (Cardinals, Ravens, Orioles, Falcons, Crows) is s...

    Ralphiewick Ralph: Damn It Feels Good To Have A Red Rider

    There's something magical about the Geto Boys' "Damn It Feels Good to be a Gangsta." The same could be said about A Christmas Story. Here's what happens when you put that chocolate in that peanut butter. - John Nova Lomax

    Charalambides, Likeness

    Houston expatriates Tom and Christina Carter of Charalambides are probably among the city's most prolific non-blues musicians: Their band has averaged two full-length releases per year since they began playing 15 years ago. Still, the volume of their...

    GRiT Boys, Ghetto Reality in Texas - An evening with Houston's GRiT Boys

    It's always a good idea to judge people by the way that they look, right? Well, it turns out that once-infallible methodology may be kind of, well, wrong. At first glance, the GRiT Boys appear to be more of the stereotype-reinforcing thug rappers wh...

    The Replacements: All Over but the Shouting, by Jim Walsh - A new oral history of The Replacements

    No one likes to piss off a rock god. But oral histories thrill most when they're packed with gossipy first-person accounts. The author of The Replacements: All Over but the Shouting, Jim Walsh, wrote about the Minneapolis scene in Press sister paper ...

    Miranda Lambert

    Miranda Lambert may be blond, and she did get her big break on a musical reality show (American Idol's twangier cousin Nashville Star), but otherwise she's completely out of sync with mainstream country's current parade of perfectly styled waifs who...

    Peter Bjorn & John

    There's absolutely nothing complicated about Peter Bjorn & John. Comprised of three guys named -- you guessed it -- Peter, Bjorn and John, the Swedes wear this simplicity on their sleeves. That sort of unself-conscious, and very Nordic, unfussiness ...

    Trenchtown in the 'Trose - Talking ska with Ryan Scroggins

    Maybe there are taller peaks ahead in the career of Ryan Scroggins, the former keyboardist in Los Skarnales and now the leader of his own band, the Trenchtown Texans. Or maybe the best has already come and gone. Scroggins knows one thing -- nothing c...

    Otep, Hellyeah

    Otep Shamaya says "Art is war." The singer for her namesake L.A.-based metal fusion band considers herself a revolutionary, and makes artistic catharsis via visceral screams and songs that sear into the ears like hot grease. Her lyrics are laden wit...

    Avenged Sevenfold, Avenged Sevenfold

    In the past, Avenged Sevenfold's meathead simplicity pretty much excused all its bad behavior and even worse musical choices. It was as if the five members picked up, pored over and appropriated the Metal Band Rulebook before ever learning a single ...

    Balaclavas, Rusted Shut

    It's tempting to refer to the brooding punk of Balaclavas' two EPs as goth, but the band lacks proper goth's showiness, melodrama and fashion sense. They better recall the razor's edge of darkness walked by Joy Division, though without the flavor of...

    Eagles, The Long Road Out of Eden
