November 9, 2005

My Morning Jacket's new record, Z, is the kind of pure and uninhibited rock 'n' roll that has been largely absent from music since the '90s. They have an earthy sound and the instruments come off as natural and raw. My Morning Jacket isn't afraid to run a little wild in the recordings, as most of th...

November 2, 2005

From packing basement parties in their hometown of Gainesville, Fla., to playing on Conan O'Brien, the rabble-rousing punks of Against Me! have come a long way. This is nothing special, really. Bands like Nirvana and the Clash started out playing in crummy dives before they broke big and started s...

October 5, 2005

  A warning: Before I listened to H.I.M.'s new album Dark Light, it never occurred to me that H.I.M. actually stood for something (His Internal Majesty for those of you in the same boat); not to mention I had never even picked up a H.I.M. album-I guess you could call me a H.I.M. novice. So if ...
