    Drenched In Blog: Gold at the End of Radiohead's Rainbows?

    Just like any other elitist music writer out there, I like Radiohead. I bought OK Computer in ninth grade and listened to it a week straight while I was sick from school. I loved it, as did pretty much all of us. Each album since has been a resoundi...

    The Axiom Lives (for a Weekend)

    By anyone's yardstick (or any other measuring instrument), this weekend's Axiom reunion at Fitzgerald's was a rousing success. The 600-capacity club was packed both nights - I stood in line for 15 minutes waiting to get in Friday - with people old ...

    Vinyl Heads - They're turning to needles, looking for purity

    Late one placid Friday afternoon, a friend sends this enticing text message: "Just talked to the dealer. We are on for tomorrow. I'm supposed to call around three or four." Sounds perfect. The next couple of days just got a whole lot more interes...

    Ryan Scroggins was Los Skarnales's keyboardist, and from the sound of the Trenchtown Texans' debut, also their resident ska fiend. Aside from side forays into dub ("Hellbender"), Django-esque jazz ("The Alligator") and ska/honky-tonk hybrid "Into th...

    Our Band to Admire - Interpol gets darker but shines brighter with its stunning third album

    In this heavily hyped day and age, most heavily hyped bands go only as far as the initial hoopla, their coveted buzz fickly trickling to buzz-kill. Not so with Interpol, the onetime buzz band whose hum has now become a bona fide roar. Back in 200...

    Under the Volcano - Ducking Humberto at Under the Volcano

    Hinder, Papa Roach, Buckcherry

    When critics carp that rock doesn't sell anymore, they mean rock they like doesn't sell anymore -- if it ever really did -- because Hinder sells just fine. Since the Oklahomans' Universal debut Extreme Behavior's September 2005 release, it's been So...

    Corb Lund & the Hurtin' Albertans

    I love pickers who leave vapor trails behind wherever they go. Corb Lund and his crew sound like a jazz band that accidentally grazed in the loco-weed patch and tried to overcome the effects by drinking a bucket of coffee. Sidekicks Grady Valgardson...

    The Sea and Cake
