    Various Artists: The Great Debaters: Music From & Recorded for the Motion Picture

    Rare is the soundtrack that goes to the effort of soliciting original recordings, and rarer still is one that puts considerable thought into those recordings' direction. For The Great Debaters, a film about the 1935 debate team at Wiley College (a t...

    Cat Power - Jukebox

    It's easy to dismiss Jukebox, Cat Power's second covers CD, as Matador's lazy way of dealing with head kitty Chan Marshall's latest bout of writer's block, but any indie-rock hipster knows she always stuffs her live shows with other people's songs. ...

    Black Mountain: In the Future

    Rock nostalgia doesn't always result in great art, but it can sound pretty bitchin' blasting from a car stereo. In the Future, Canadian group Black Mountain's second album, provides further proof (after 2007 single "Druganaut") that for these five V...

    Kevin Devine, the Jealous Girlfriends

    Perhaps the only thing more damning than being hailed as the next Dylan is being perpetually stuck in the shadow of Conor Oberst. Such has been the fate of Kevin Devine, a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who deftly balances personal and political s...

    Steve Poltz

    Ask people about the ultra-prolific Steve Poltz, and one word keeps coming up: insane. It comes in several shades of meaning: "brilliant," "creative" and, well, "clinically nuts." One record-store clerk spoke about Poltz as though he were an undisco...

    Dead Meadow

    "I can't tell if we're running from, or coming to," muses Dead Meadow singer/guitarist Jason Simon on the folky, elegiac "Ain't Got Nothing (To Go Wrong)," his decentered voice dripping with idiosyncratic weariness. He could easily be opening up to ...

    The Mars Volta take Manhattan - Bedlam at Terminal 5

    If there were a word that got at it better than "masturbatory," I'd use it, but there's not, so "masturbatory" it is. The Mars Volta have been onstage for two-and-a-half hours. Another minute longer and they might go blind, and we deaf. The din h...

    Spazmatics = Revenge of the Replicants - Did you know that '80s cover band the Spazmatics has clones from coast to coast?

    Ah, Houston. Increasingly, we seem to be a city that loves its chain stores, a franchise-friendly haven where people get their groceries at Wal-Mart and will drive right past places like Lankford Grocery to get their burger fix at Mickey D's. And n...
