    Candy Floss - Stefy

    I thought I was really onto something with Stefy. "Oh, a local girl," I thought. "Playing at Cal State Fullerton! Cute." I'd never heard of her, but she sounded like a cheap bit of fluffiness, much like the novelty, pastel-colored junk foods to be h...

    Canadian Collectives - Do Make Say Think

    I swear to God, Canadian music is much more than Broken Social Scene. It's a total accident that basically every successful Toronto rock star type is also in BSS, including a couple of the dudes from Do Make Say Think, an unusual and frequently spec...

    Underappreciation - Richard Thompson and Eliza Gilkyson

    Richard Thompson and Eliza Gilkyson are proof of just how little justice exists in this messed-up world. Despite droves of critical praise, the two accomplished singer/songwriter/musicians barely register a commercial blip, each reduced to primarily...

    CD Review - Barr, Summary (5RC)

    I doubt Brendan Fowler (Barr) was aware during the writing of Summary that the record would be one of his label's final releases; nevertheless, it's an uncannily appropriate last chapter to the 5RC story. First, it's very dark, which is fine--I see ...

    Beyond Budokan - Big Business: Death On Four Legs

    Big Business look a tiny little like the Melvins--at a recent show in LA, the Melvins' Buzz and Big bassist Jared Warren potted down at opposite corners of the stage like matching topiary--and they also share similar geographic origin (Bigfoot count...

    Meow - Contemplating the Pussycat Dolls

    Generally speaking, America doesn't support pre-fabricated pop groups the way the UK wholeheartedly does. We prefer that our famouses at least have the patina of earning it, working for that dream, that city upon the hill. Or at least we did, before...

    Tarts Triumphant - Christina Aguilera

    Well, you won. You did it. Back when it was you and Britney reigning supreme over the subpar versions of yourselves, it was kind of a draw. She played her hand, her cheerleader body and Southern charm slowly morphing into an awakened, sweating sex k...

    Emeralds - Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh

    Irish music fans can count on OC's own Fenians to tear it up on St. Paddy's Day at the Anaheim House of Blues, but for those who prefer a more delicate, ethereal celebration of Ireland, tradition-steeped songbird Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh will import a...

    In a recent interview with Minnesota Public Radio, Damon Albarn explained that The Good, The Bad and The Queen isn't a band--it's an "orchestra." On top of that, The Good, The Bad and The Queen isn't even the orchestra's name: "We're not called The ...

    So Many White People - is there still room for Sebadoh?

    Live Review - Fast Times Lifetime with Mika Miko and Shook Ones Chain Reaction, Anaheim

    I hadn't set foot in Chain Reaction in well over a year, but once I did I remembered one reason why: awkward pairings like Mika Miko and Lifetime. The venue itself hadn't changed much--except for the pair of flat-screen TVs and the obnoxious Guitar ...
