What should I be doing instead of this?

Jay Farrar reformed Son Volt in 2005 and hooked up with Rhino Records to release 'A Retrospective: 1995-2000.' Four solid albums have followed, the latest being 'American Central Dust,' released by Rounder Records last month. The piano-driven "Cocaine and Ashes" makes for a buzzworthy single because it revolves around the rumor that Keith Richard snorted his father's ashes.

On their latest traveling tent revival, the Shack*Shakers will likely be singing from the upcoming chapter in their snake-handling hymnal, the fall-scheduled 'AgriDustrial' CD. Col. J.D. Wilkes remains the hypnotically frenetic presence behind the microphone and harmonica.  

O'Death at Independence Day Throwdown

O'Death's rugged stomp grafts the power of Punk and Metal onto the faculties of Jazz, Bluegrass and Folk and spits the combination out with the unencumbered spirit of pre-WWII music.

Once upon a helluva long time ago, Country music was about the music, and you can thank the deity of your choice that there are folks out there like Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys who understand that perspective all too well.

Unless you're a maven of '80s Hardcore, it's not likely that a mention of the Zero Boys will ignite any immediate resonance. Considering their story, that's a shame.

Titus Andronicus is a catalyst trying to destroy music. While the band is definitely not for the faint of eardrum, there is a surprising amount of depth and devotion to their sound.   

Ted Leo Cures Punk

Crafting a traditional remedy with The Pharmacists

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 10, 2009
Sometimes, Ted Leo seems too respectable. During his 20-year career, the songwriter has gradually become an unspoken archetype of Punk Rock ideals. His work is layered with spirited socio-political musings, but his words never become forced or stale.

Joe Lally keeps a frenetic pace after his long history with Fugazi

0 Comments · Monday, June 1, 2009
One band’s hiatus is another man’s overbooked schedule. That could be the mantra of Fugazi bassist Joe Lally. Since the Post-Hardcore/Punk band announced a break in the action seven years ago, Lally has been working relentlessly on a variety of projects. He started by forming Decahedron with former Frodus members Jason Hamacher and Shelby Cinca, releasing an EP and an album. He subsequently joined Red Hot Chili Pepper guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Josh Klinghoffer for the Ataxia project, which resulted in a pair of releases.

Camera Obscura is a bit like a liquor-filled chocolate: something that at first seems dark and sweet but very quickly reveals a pungent center with a potent kick.
