    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

    Eagles Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit may all love music, but they don't make it collectively unless there's a mammoth payday involved. Maybe that's why their seventh studio LP, released through a profit-maximizing deal with...

    David Byrne, The Knee Plays

    Better to burn out or fade away? The current musical tendency to fetishize the past, creating new markets through nostalgia, has come up with a new answer to this timeless rock and roll question: reissue. For the second year in a row, David Byrne h...

    Chuck Prophet, Soap and Water

    Leave it to the ever-interesting, never-sitting-still Chuck Prophet to begin a record with the wonderfully suggestive line, "I like the way you freckle, I like the way you peel, I love to see your hair in a mess." Also leave it to the ever-inventiv...

    Ghostface Killah - Is Ghostface as dumb as he wants you to think he is?

    Ghostface Killah is a brilliant storyteller and lyricist, the only Wu-Tang Clan member still making relevant solo albums and a prolific, increasingly media-savvy artist who nonetheless seems to constantly shoot himself in the foot commercially. He...

    Drenched In Blog: Ike Beats Tina to Death

    It's headlines like this that make me feel like I'm in the right profession. With five simple words, the entire game done changed. It's right up there with Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt and the Ramones at CBGB. Thanks, New York Post. -- Craig Hlavaty

    Get Lit: Twenty Thousand Roads: The Ballad of Gram Parsons and His Cosmic American Music, by David N. Meyer

    To his critics, Parsons was a spoiled rich-kid wastrel who rode his good looks, marginal talent and insider connections to a promising career. But he ultimately pissed it all away through selfishness, out-of-control hard-drug abuse and reckless sexua...
