CD Revue

Antimatter, Fruit Bats, Eric Benet, Widow, Hanalei

By Rebecca Vernon
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - ANTIMATTER Planetary Confinement ****nnWith masterpiece stunners like Planetary Confinement leaking out into the world, one wonders why people still consistently choose crap (i.e. radio). Antimatter’s existential, haunting, atmospheric, acoustic-based...

Kinski, Hard-Fi, Keyshia Cole, Keith Hillebrandt, Junior Varsity

By Rebecca Vernon
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - KINSKI Alpine Static ****nnIf Rush worshipped Kyuss, they’d sound like Kinski. All instrumental, Kinski’s raw, furry riffs straddle the gap between Fu Manchu and the snooty progginess, avant-garde timing and mad movements of techheads. Kinski,...

CD Revue

Muggs, White Stripes, Get Him Eat Him, Mon Frere, Tsar

By Rebecca Vernon
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - THE MUGGS The Muggs ****The Muggs are pretty much sex personified, with plump Black Sabbath/T. Rex riffs, an overall classic-rock appeal sans squeaky-clean production, and Ozzy-ish/Robert Plant vocals, blues-swamp guitar solos, crisp, aggressive drumming...

CD Revue

Cloud Cult, Cloud Room, Anna Nalick, Kate Earl, Jana

By Rebecca Vernon
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - CLOUD CULT Advice From the Happy Hippopotamus ****Um … yeah. Cloud Cult might be the zaniest band you’ve never heard, but they sure as hell are one of the best. A music box and handclaps end the trip-hop breakbeat of “Living on the Outside...

Nine Inch Nails, Audioslave, Black Eyed Peas, Scary Kids, Avenged Sevenfold

By Rebecca Vernon
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - NINE INCH NAILS With Teeth ****nnWhat, really, is there to say after the most underrated masterpiece of the ‘90s, Nine Inch Nails’ The Fragile? Much, apparently. The Prince of Trentness returns post-rehab with his most accessible album to date'it’s...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - BAD RELIGION The Empire Strikes First **** If it’s not broke, why fix it? Bad Religion have been spewing out politically charged, against-all-odds punk rock, complete with shamefully catchy choruses, for longer than any pet you have has been alive....

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - FRANZ FERDINAND Franz Ferdinand **** Call them pretentious fashioncore new-wave dance maniacs grasping onto the coattails of the current electro-pop craze. Call them art snobs. Call them the New Mod. But you can’t call them despicable. Franz Ferdinand...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - DIVISION OF LAURA LEE Das Not Compute **** DoLL are like the male version of Sahara Hotnights, combining urgent garage melodies with unforgettable riffs and early-’80s punk attitude, creating a semi-epic tilt that separates the average pop bands...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - VOLCANO, I’M STILL EXCITED Volcano, I’m Still Excited **** Despite having one of the worst band names ever, Volcano, I’m Still Excited really know how to make a swell record. This is what an emo-ish indie-rock band formed by Juilliard...

POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - MODEST MOUSE Good News for People Who Love Bad News **** Can there be a bad Modest Mouse release? Objectivity aside, this may be the most addictive MM album to date. Simpler than previous efforts, a little less bitter—a little—Good News is...
