"Civilian" by Wye Oak

"Civilian" by Wye Oak

Baltimore, Maryland, duo Wye Oak, comprised of guitarist/vocalist Jenn Wasner and drummer/keyboardist Andy Stack, don't look like much more than two nice young kids when you see them in person, but get them behind their respective instruments and they create one hell of a wall of sound. Their first... [More]

"The Party Ain’t Over" by Wanda Jackson

"The Party Ain’t Over" by Wanda Jackson

At the ripe old age of 73 Wanda Jackson, The Queen of Rockabilly herself, is poised to make a comeback and it doesn't hurt that she's got a White Stripe in her back pocket. Looking to catch lightning in a bottle again as he did with Loretta Lynn on her comeback album Van Lear Rose, Jack White of The... [More]

"Blakroc " by Blakroc

"Blakroc " by Blakroc

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of the Indie-Blues Rock duo The Black Keys certainly had their hands full in 2009 even though they didn't have an official new album out. Auerbach and Carney each released solo side-projects earlier in the year and now comes Blakroc, a Rap-Rock super group that no one... [More]

"Tarot Sport" by Fuck Buttons

"Tarot Sport" by Fuck Buttons

Andrew Hung and Benjamin John Power, who consist of the British Electronic/Ambient Noise duo F**k Buttons, do not make music for the masses. Their first LP, 2008's Street Horrrsing (produced with the help of Mogwai's John Cummings) was an abrasive debut that lent more towards noise acts such as Wolf... [More]

"Monsters of Folk" by Monsters of Folk

"Monsters of Folk" by Monsters of Folk

Like The Highwaymen and The Traveling Willburys before them, Monsters of Folk is a supergroup of massive proportions. Unlike those groups which carried the torch for the worlds of Country and Classic Rock, Monsters of Folk are the torchbearers of the Indie-Rock scene. MOF is comprised of such lumina... [More]

"Get Lucky" by Mark Knopfler

"Get Lucky" by Mark Knopfler

Can you believe it's been almost 15 years since Mark Knopfler put the kibosh on Dire Straits? Since then, Knopfler has released a steady stream of solo albums every couple of years and none have been better than the critically beloved Sailing to Philadelphia or his album of duets with Emmylou Harris...

"I and Love and You" by The Avett Brothers

"I and Love and You" by The Avett Brothers

After five albums and two EP's worth of work that have been worshiped by a die-hard following over the last seven years, the venerable Alt-Country group The Avett Brothers have finally been called up to the major leagues. Landing a major label deal with Sony, I and Love and You also has the distinct... [More]

" Man on the Moon: The End of Day" by Kid Cudi

" Man on the Moon: The End of Day" by Kid Cudi

Say what you will about Kanye West the person, but Kanye West the rapper and producer has changed the Hip-Hop game for the better. His unique flow and ear for diverse beats, samples and live instrumentation have influenced a new generation of up and coming wunderkinds and his protégée Kid Cudi is ne... [More]

"Where the Wild Things Are Soundtrack" by Karen O and T...

"Where the Wild Things Are Soundtrack" by Karen O and The Kids

With all the trailers for the new movie Where the Wild Things Are (based on the enormously popular children's book by Maurice Sendak) featuring Arcade Fire's "Wake Up," you would have thought the group would have had something to do with the soundtrack, but that isn't the case. The soundtrack for th... [More]

"See Mystery Lights" by YACHT

"See Mystery Lights" by YACHT

YACHT is the gentlemen half of the Indie-Electronic act The Blow and See Mystery Lights is Jona Bechtolt's first album for the mega-respected Dance label DFA which, in fact, is run by uber-cool guy James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem and third album total for YACHT all together. Got all that? Good, th... [More]

"Gather, Form & Fly" by Megafaun

"Gather, Form & Fly" by Megafaun

Hailing from Raleigh-Durham North Carolina, Megafaun are a team of three very talented musicians who used to back one Justin Vernon before he became the breakout hit Bon Iver. Just because these guys used to be Vernon's band doesn't mean they should be undersold or overlooked however. Brothers Bradl... [More]

"Still Your Man" by Paul Burch

"Still Your Man" by Paul Burch

Have you ever had one of those singer-songwriters or bands that you have loved to death for years but it seems that no one else has ever heard of them? Paul Burch is that kind of artist for me. Toiling away for over a decade now, the only bit of notoriety that Burch has ever carved out for himself i... [More]

"Born on Flag Day" by Deer Tick

"Born on Flag Day" by Deer Tick

Building on the surprising debut that was 2007's War Elephant, Deer Tick, a.k.a. John McCauley's follow-up Born on Flag Day is a more tightly put together set of Countrified Rock that should bring about a heap of notoriety for the 23 year old youngster. When listening to McCauley's grizzled old-t... [More]

" Back and Forth" by Pete Yorn

" Back and Forth" by Pete Yorn

2.5 out of 5 stars Pete Yorn is one of those artists to me who just can't seem to live up to or recreate the greatness of his debut album. In 2001, he crafted the superb Musicforthemorningafter, which at the time seemed to announce the arrival of a unique new singer/songwriter talent to w... [More]

"The Knot " by Wye Oak

"The Knot " by Wye Oak

The first time I ever encountered this up and coming band from Baltimore, I saw them open for Merge label mates Shearwater and they completely blew them out of the shear water. Lead singer/guitarist Jenn Wasner's vocals are staggering, ranging somewhere between a newcomer like Jessica Lea Mayfield... [More]
