    Lee Boys

    Even the holiest among us don't expect to grab a piece of religion while hanging at the local dive bar. Then again, it's not good to make assumptions like that if you haven't heard the music of the gospel-y yet funky church band the Lee Boys. Fronte...

    Lupe Fiasco - Lupe Fiasco's The Cool

    Though some believe Chicago's Lupe Fiasco is too smart for mainstream rap, that's not exactly true. Most of the lyrics on sophomore release Lupe Fiasco's The Cool are pretty basic, clichd stuff, right down to the CD's opening monologue: "They thoug...

    Richard Lloyd - The Radiant Monkey

    Minus the terrible cover art and the aberrant jock-rock boogie of the opening track, "Monkey," the remainder of Richard Lloyd's most recent solo outing, falls comfortably within the guitarist's angular, ordered realm. Since his heyday playing second...

    Various Artists - Healing Force: The Songs of Albert Ayler

    An icon of 1960s free jazz, tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler had a singularly extreme approach that influenced figures as disparate as John Coltrane, Peter Brtzmann and Patti Smith. Healing Force pays tribute to Ayler's oft-reviled late period, inclu...

    The Roches - Moonswept

    Rock Star Resolutions - Who vows to stay off the sauce this year?
