    in the Mouth of a Desert - Where the Henry Clay People exude orange-ness

    The Henry Clay People might bring to mind the swagger a grizzled bar-band opening for, say, the Hold Steady, but they put forward an unmistakably local sound. In much the same way that Television recalls the concrete and steel of New York City with ...

    Keep It Like a Secret - Frankie the Face, DJ, The Secret Affair

    What's the story of the Secret Affair? Three and a half years ago my friends were putting on Seventeen Seconds--this little '60s soul night. One of the DJs dropped out and I joined. We wanted to keep it '60s and soul and in the Long Beach and Oran...

    CD Review - The Apples in Stereo, New Magnetic Wonder, Simian/Elephant 6/Yep Rock Records

    Bad news for you fingers-and-toes-counting musicians out there: turns out math isbecoming exceedingly important in composition. And not just clap-clap-clap count the beats math, but whiz-kid mathematics, like the kind behind the "Non-Pythagorean" sc...

    In the Light - Blank Tapes take the dark out of night

    I Want More - BLOW UP BLOW, SUPER TONIGHT/SUPER TONIGHT (AMISH RIOT MIX) 12 SINGLE, SPINAL RECORDS

    So how the darkness doubled: long time cooling for Blow Up Blow's "Super Tonight" single, which was a signature song when they used to play it in 2004 but which needed a just-so recording to get it right. Fine with me: this double A-side maxi-single...

    Defied Expectations - Jake Shimabukuro

    For too long, the ukulele has been looked upon as the emasculated cousin of the already fey acoustic guitar. Outside of Hawaiian music, most people's impressions of the ukulele are rooted firmly in the eccentric world of Tiny Tim or effete sepia-ton...

    Priceless Imports - Miho Hatori

    Miho Hatori is a bossa nova bunny and a funk moppet. She's a glitch technician and a hunter of the wickedest world music sounds. When weird indie kids take on age-old musical traditions, it's usually pretty embarrassing, but Hatori is profoundly cap...

    Girlyrections - Pennywise

    Not to diminish their above-and-beyond musical capabilities--Pennywise is one of those orthodox-punk bands that puts roses in the cheeks of angry beasts in the pit and the nine-dollar-beer-drinking, back-of-the-crowd critic jerks alike--but I have t...

    CD Review - Deerhoof, Friend Opportunity (Kill Rock Stars)

    Before 2005's The Runners Four, I couldn't make sense of Deerhoof. Between the band's jazz-inspired instrumentation and Satomi Matsuzaki's all-too-simple lyrics, I was convinced that they were pulling off some clever inside joke. Then I learned ho...
