    Black Mountain

    Black Mountain is an anomaly among Canadian bands. For one thing, it has only five members, and they don't play highfalutin chamber-pop that requires the assistance of at least two dozen instrumentalists onstage. You can practically smell the weed o...

    Cryptacize

    Nobody familiar with Chris Cohen's harried guitar tactics from his Deerhoof days, or his brick-by-brick deconstruction of rock in the Curtains, should be taken aback by the organic weirdness of Cryptacize, yet another of his outfits (or is that outl...

    Gogol Bordello

    New York-based self-proclaimed "gypsy punks" Gogol Bordello have been roving the world since 2002, assaulting unsuspecting listeners with one of the most original endeavors to be captured on tape since post-punk was at its peak. A multi-ethnic group...

    What's the Problem Houston? - The city's skuzzy alt-rock scene thinks it is dying

    So a couple of weeks ago, we received the following plaintive missive/statement of intent in our inbox, from Fitzgerald's booking manager Frances Tofte: "Houston... Do we have a problem??? Is it oversaturation? Is it lack of interest? Is it lack ...

    Goldfrapp: Seventh Tree

    Amid the atmospherics of Felt Mountain, the synth-cabaret bombast of Black Cherry and the lascivious Supernature grows Seventh Tree, a massive step in Goldfrapp's evolution with only a passing resemblance to the English duo's previous albums. Though...

    MySpaced Out: European Discotheque - Goldfrapp inspires a cyber-search for the perfect beat

    Although I previously knew next to nothing about techno, electronica or any other kind of club music, hearing the "Spirit in the Sky" rhythmic base of "Ooh La La" from Goldfrapp's 2005 album Supernature was like having a head-on collision with an ins...

    Drenched in Blog: Weird SXSW Alert: Care Bears on Fire

    This is Care Bears on Fire, a Thurston Moore-lauded trio of 14-year-old New York City girls. They sound kind of like a slowed-down version of the Ramones, with a pubescent Kathleen Hanna on vocals. It's gritty. It's hip. It's not Hannah Montana. One ...

    I have to send a shout out to Ruthie Rodriguez at The Daily Cougar for her article about the Wild Moccasins, which led me to the quintet, who switch from pop to country-tinged rock with the energy you'd expect to see from a group of under-20s. ...
