    Monotonix: Body Language

    It used to be that a band's records enticed you to the live show. Though a studio recording, Monotonix's Drag City debut EP Body Language, on the other hand, is best appreciated as a memento of the delirious tumult this band puts on live. You kno...

    She & Him: Volume One

    With the possible exception of the three people who look back fondly on Bruce Willis's recording career, we're well acquainted with the eardrum damage that can occur when actors live out their rock-star fantasies. But don't shy away from She & Him's...

    The Mighty Orq: To the Bone

    They must hear it every single show, so it was downright gracious (and no doubt ironic) of the Mighty Orq to thank the people who "yelled 'Play some Stevie!'" in the liner notes of To the Bone. In truth, the Bayou City blues-rockers are much less in...

    Reverberations: Beatles, Stones, Dirtbombs and Fleshtones

    I'm about to tell you about two shows that are anything except garage rock, but due to their roots, spirit and aesthetic are precisely garage rock. But first, some history: Early garage bands owe a massive debt to the Stones, primarily the early re...

    Drenched in Blog: March Madness, Rock-Style

    Pelican, with Thrice and Circa Survive

    In no rock subgenre is the guitar solo more integral than in metal, and sounds unheard, you could be forgiven for thinking that "instrumental metal" would describe songs that are merely extended solos. Pelican's music is more intricate than that, as...
