Kobi CD review [Silber]

Music ReviewsKobi CD review [Silber] By Jan 8, 2005, 04:52 KOBI Projecto CD I own a pit bull named Tang King Po de Bosco. Aside from the viciousness her breed is famous for, she also possesses certain other destructive tendencies; clawed doors, chewed shoes, destroyed vacuum cleaners and pissed-on rugs are a few of her […]

Southkill CD review [Noreaster Failed Industries]

Music ReviewsSouthkill CD review [Noreaster Failed Industries] By Jun 6, 2005, 05:26 SOUTHKILL CD The deity behind the desk at Your Flesh designed to play a cruel hoax on me this time out: Pete sent me all these discs I like. Where am I to exercise my rapier sarcastic wit? How am I to hone […]

Megan Reilly CD review [Carrot Top]

Music ReviewsMegan Reilly CD review [Carrot Top] By Jun 3, 2003, 05:10 MEGAN REILLY Arc of Tessa CD Would've liked this just fine on its own—the airy, plaintive, liquid-smooth vocals relating tales of love, life, loss, loneliness, and other L-related things; the sometimes-country/sometimes-folk/always interesting melody lines; the overall deeply personal, genuine feel to the proceedings. […]

Aerogramme CD review [Matador]

Music ReviewsAerogramme CD review [Matador] By Feb 13, 2003, 04:26 AEROGRAMME Sleep And Release CD Whidge? Sometimes I'm left without a damn thing to say. Being just another lazy-ass rock record reviewer, I rely on “sounds like” comparisons for a great deal of my grist; I've gotten to the point, though, where I even bore […]

Killing Joke CD review [Zuma]

Music ReviewsKilling Joke CD review [Zuma] By Aug 5, 2003, 04:38 KILLING JOKE CD They delivered one of the single best live shows I've seen in years a month or so ago at the Majestic Theater in Detroit, just after laying this killer CD on an unsuspecting world, and I've been in semi-heaven ever since. […]

Loren Connors CD review [Family Vineyard]

Music ReviewsLoren Connors CD review [Family Vineyard] By Aug 22, 2003, 04:42 LOREN CONNORS The Departing of a Dream, Vol. II  CD I was all set to hate this on the basis of what looked like an arty black-and-white Margaret Bourke-White-ish cover photo that usually denotes music made by hackey-sack playing, pot-smoking hippies from Olympia, […]

Lucinda Williams CD review [Lost Highway]

Music ReviewsLucinda Williams CD review [Lost Highway] By Apr 8, 2003, 05:02 LUCINDA WILLIAMS World Without Tears CD It's always amazed me that more people aren't clued into the sheer genius that is Lucinda (not that she's hurting any, keeping company with the likes of Steve Earle and playing well with the Rolling Stone set). […]

Manitoba CD review [Leaf]

Music ReviewsManitoba CD review [Leaf] By Apr 8, 2003, 05:05 MANITOBA Up In Flames CD They sound Canadian. Are they? Canadian—not in a shitty way, like, Les Sans Culottes, but in the way that cool stuff on late-nite CBC radio sounds. Think they're from the UK, though. Imagine a DJ-driven Spiritualized with a nice computer […]

Radiohead CD review [Capitol]

Music ReviewsRadiohead CD review [Capitol] By Jun 10, 2003, 05:22 RADIOHEAD Hail To The Thief CD I continually wonder what became of Radiohead, the band which wrote “Creep” and “The Bends”—two of the most awe-inspiring poprock toons of the last decade. They seem to have been replaced by Radiohead, the Thom Yorke vehicle for expository […]
