"Classics" by Ratatat

"Classics" by Ratatat

Evan Mast and Mike Stroud, the duo that make up the mostly instumental Dance-Rock outfit Ratatat, are back with their sophomore release Classics. Classics delves generally into the same territory that their self-titled debut of two years ago did, sounding somewhere between Electronic acts such as Da... [More]

"Happy Hollow" by Cursive

"Happy Hollow" by Cursive

With the departure of Gretta Cohn, the cellist and secret weapon for Cursive's 2003 masterpiece The Ugly Organ, Tim Kasher and company came to quite the crossroads as to which direction to take Cursive next. Should they return to their bleak, early scream-o style sound, or keep mining the challengin... [More]

"The Body, The Blood, The Machine" by The Thermals

"The Body, The Blood, The Machine" by The Thermals

Portland Punk/Indie-Rock group The Thermals have made a quick return to the musical fold with The Body, The Blood, The Machine; their follow-up to 2004's stellar (and stellarly titled) Fuckin A. A lot has happened in such a short amount of time since we last heard from these Oregonians. Founding dru... [More]

"At War With the Mystics" by The Flaming Lips

"At War With the Mystics" by The Flaming Lips

To begin with apologies are due for not getting a review for At War w/the Mystics until well over 4 months of its release. But I have a good excuse. I'm sure all of you have heard or read the news of my harrowing tale of survival in the wilds of Scotland. As it happened I was just pulling ashore aft... [More]

"Personality - One Was a Spider, One Was a Bird" by The...

"Personality - One Was a Spider, One Was a Bird" by The Sleepy Jackson

I'm only going to type the full title of Australia import The Sleepy Jackson once. Their 2003 break-thru release Lovers was much more writer-friendly than Personality - One Was a Spider, One Was a Bird. As album titles go this one definitely crosses into goofy, pain in the ass territory, but as albu... [More]

"The Audience's Listening" by Cut Chemist

"The Audience's Listening" by Cut Chemist

Although Lucas Macfadden a.k.a. Cut Chemist may not be a household DJ name like DJ Shadow and Fatboy Slim, he's extremely respected by his peers in and the fans of the underground Hip-Hop community. Cut Chemist first came into prominence with his two extremely limited collaborations with DJ Shadow c... [More]

"Highway Companion" by Tom Petty

"Highway Companion" by Tom Petty

Tom Petty goes it alone without The Heartbreakers for the third time in his career with Highway Companion, his latest full-length recording. Highway Companion has a lot to live up to considering the other two solo albums he's made, Full Moon Fever and Wildflowers, were both masterpieces. For this al... [More]

"Another Fine Day" by Golden Smog

"Another Fine Day" by Golden Smog

Golden Smog has always been one of those super groups that seemingly has gone unnoticed since their inception in 1992. Strange considering the three main members consist of Gary Louris of The Jayhawks, Dan Murphy of Soul Asylum and Jeff Tweedy of Wilco; not a slouch among them. It's been eight years... [More]

"The Loon" by Tapes n' Tapes

"The Loon" by Tapes n' Tapes

If you happen to be a music nerd like me and scour the internet for hours upon hours looking for buzzed about new artists and bands, then more than likely you've heard of the Minneapolis Indie-Rock group Tapes ‘n Tapes. Tapes are destined to become this year's Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, seemingly fol... [More]

"Happy New Year " by Oneida

"Happy New Year " by Oneida

New York art-rocker staples Oneida made a huge splash for me personally last year with their album The Wedding. It made number 11 on my best-of list and I tried to turn everyone I knew on to it as much as possible, considering it was their most accessible and listener friendly release to date. I eve... [More]

"American V: A Hundred Highways " by Johnny Cash

"American V: A Hundred Highways " by Johnny Cash

It's hard to believe that back when super producer Rick Rubin and Johnny Cash first got together to put out American Recordings in 1994, Johnny Cash was pretty much considered a washed up old has been. Yes, everyone could easily agree that he would go down as a Country legend, but c'mon, had anyone... [More]

"Under the Iron Sea" by Keane

"Under the Iron Sea" by Keane

Britain's atmospheric trio Keane pledge allegiances to the likes of The Smiths and Depeche Mode, but I think special thanks are in order to Radiohead, U2, Coldplay, and Sigur Ros, because these bands have clearly influenced their latest release. Having said that, Under the Iron Sea, represents a... [More]

"Return To Cookie Mountain" by TV On The Radio

"Return To Cookie Mountain" by TV On The Radio

I don't usually condone going out and paying outrageous import prices for albums that will eventually be released domestically, but I have to say you should make an exception for TV On The Radio's sophomore release Return To Cookie Mountain. After finding out that these Brooklyn-ites and winners of... [More]

"Black Holes and Revelations" by Muse

"Black Holes and Revelations" by Muse

Of the bands that have made the most legitimate bids for inheriting the mantel that Radiohead has, at times, seemingly left up for grabs. (Until they re-established their claim on Radioheadness with Hail to the Thief) I'd say that Travis and Muse, in their prime, looked like the most likely candidat... [More]

"Eraser" by Thom Yorke

"Eraser" by Thom Yorke

The degree to which you enjoy Thom Yorke's toss-off solo effort, Eraser, will depend largely on how much you enjoyed Kid A and more accurately Amnesiac. As reports of a delay before Radiohead's much-anticipated 7th full Lengther, the window of opportunity for Yorke to get this bedroom-laptop opus ou... [More]
