      nnnnSalt Lake City dark-rock (don't call it goth) band Subrosa toured Europe in October, supporting their Swedish label debut Strega. The following is is singer-guitarist Rebecca Vernon's best recollection.n nTouring Europe has been my dream for years, and we finally did it: Subrosa toured for nine solid hellish-amazing days in Europe last month, making it through customs, six country borders...

  • SLC Garage!

    Salt Lake bands mix up the sexiest elements of garage rock to make a wholly original sonic stew.
      Musical categorization sucks. Most musicians agree on that. Categorizing takes music from a three-dimensional, soulful, original plane and shoves it into the crude box that language affords: post-punk, emo pop, garage. Yet sometimes you can’t get...

      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...

      A GIRL CALLED EDDY A Girl Called Eddy **** You might want to hate Eddy after encountering her narcissistic artist/album title and over-romanticized love-lost lyrics. But within the first 30 seconds of the first track, Eddy Moran’s honeyed alto...

      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....

      JILL SCOTT Beautifully Human **** Did you know Jill Scott appeared on Sesame Street for its 33rd anniversary? That’s hot. Kickin’ it old-school R& , Jill combines the class and soul of ’70s divas like Diana Ross with ’50s...

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

      PREMONITIONS OF WAR Left in Kowloon **** Premonitions of War, who toured with The Black Dahlia Murder last year, deliver toxic metalcore interspersed with creative brutal Southern rock and grind/thrash breakdowns without any polish whatsoever that disintegrates...

    M.I.A, The Quarter After, Boys Night Out, Flipsyde, Hootie & the Blowfish
      M.I.A. Arular **** nnM.I.A. sounds like she studied from the feet of Peaches for her teaches on drumbeats and infectious slangy rhymes and nastiness, then hung out with Northern State and Fannypack, who taught her the kitschy street appeal of gross simplicity....

      ANI DIFRANCO Educated Guess **** Never a big Ani fan (go ahead and egg my house), I nevertheless can’t help but be blown to smithereens by Educated Guess. Intimate, stripped down and taking all kinds of risks musically, DiFranco twists, torments...
