Captain Beefheart is dead. What a suckass Christmas present. Born Donald Glen Vliet, later morphed to Don Van Vliet, but forever known by the nickname bestowed upon him by Frank Zappa when they were teenage music-makers in Lancaster, Calif., the Captain changed the course of Rock with his Howlin’ Wolf-as-painted-by Salvador-Dali vision of the Blues.   

Robin Trower, Prefab Sprout, Frank Zappa, Duffy, Hinder and Tom Caufield

Ho ho motherhumping ho. How did we get to December? And Christmas? And 2011? Holy crap on a communion cracker, are the years shrinking along with the economy? That felt like 10 months to me, tops. Maybe less. C'est la vie. Let's check out some new albums.

[V2 Records Benelux]

In the brief liner notes for this album, Dweezil Zappa (eldest son of Frank Zappa) explains that the lengthy guitar solos he plays on some of the songs are combinations of his father's work and his own improvisational inspirations, all of it filtered through Dweezil's interpretations of Frank's distinctive and quirky technique.

With 'Thank You Mr. Churchill,' his 14th studio album, Peter Frampton returns to the peak with a vengeance as the guitarist storms from strength to strength, elevating his songwriting and his playing with equal passion and precision. I'm also looking at new album releases by Courtney Love and Hole, Jesse Malin, Gogol Bordello, Pack A.D. and Caribou, plus a new DVD tribute to Frank Zappa.  

Sister Hazel, Glenn Tilbrook, Alec Ounsworth, Lisa Germano and Even Frank Zappa

In some circumstances, a solo project from a hot band's lead vocalist might signal a little trouble in paradise, but Clap Your Hands Say Yeah frontman Alec Ounsworth merely seems like a restless creative spirit that can't be contained by a single outlet. 'Mo Beauty' was recorded with producer Steve Berlin in New Orleans, and while the bulk of the material was already written, the album bears the unmistakable mark of The Big Easy, from the loping syncopation to the second line backbeat to the general booze-in-church atmosphere.
