    The Son Also Rises - John Mooney's voodoo blues have an impressive lineage.

    John Mooney doesn't give a damn about blues "purity," whatever that is. While many of his peers have stuck to just one brand of blue-hued music to the point of repetition, Mooney has spent the past thirty years deftly melding two disparate forms: str...

    Power Play - Fort Collins's favorite pop label is positively Not Lame.

    In the recent flick High Fidelity, Rob Gordon (a record-store owner played by John Cusack) muses that his excessive exposure to pop music -- replete with messages of "heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss" -- has perhaps contributed to his own...

    Air - The Virgin Suicides: Original Motion Picture Score (Astralwerks)

    Although "soundtracky" isn't a term recognized by the folks at Webster's, everyone knows what it means -- instrumental music that may work when paired with cinematic imagery but seems empty and uninteresting without it. Detractors of Jean-Benoit Dunc...

    Tin Hat Trio - Helium (Angel)

    Taking cues from the late Argentine tango wizard Astor Piazzolla, the three conservatory-trained East Coast musicians who make up the Tin Hat Trio continue to tinker with "world music" -- and boy, do they like to tinker. Recorded almost completely wi...

    Catatonia - Equally Cursed and Blessed (Atlantic)

    Catatonia's second effort to see American release combines the Welsh band's sarcasm, gravelly vocals, smartly overplayed pop and an attitude that reeks of cigarettes, hard liquor and the morning after to give lightheartedness a swift kick in the groi...

    Backwash - Jello does a shot on the latest local-music compilation.

    Join me now in a little creative visualization, won't you? It's the not-so-distant future, and that digital dial in your self-cleaning car is pumping in nothing but corporate radio 24-7. Megalithic corporations like Clear Channel and AM/FM have suc...

    Critic's Choice - The Automaton Adventure Series

    The Automaton Adventure Series, with Fast Action Revolver, Friday, May 26, at the 15th Street Tavern, is another Northwestern outfit that makes you wonder if the same daylong misting that cultivates mushrooms, moss and lush scenery in that region als...

    Hit Pick - Uversa

    Uversa, with Neil Haverstick's Space Music, Thursday, May 25, at the Lion's Lair, is the ethereal, guitar-driven project of composer TJ Edwards -- who seems as comfortable strumming a classical acoustic guitar as he is generating some crunchy electri...

    Sounds Like Fun! - A Bar's White Party

    When an overwhelming response to last year's Victoria's Secret online fashion show caused the company's Web site to crash, one thing was confirmed: Short hemlines attract. It's something the fashion-savvy folks at the A Bar learned with last year's W...

    Postivly Negativ - Sampling ad infinitum with America's sonic outlaws.

    In medieval times, a form of recreational torture involved placing a condemned person's head inside a heavy, cast-metal church bell and ringing it until he or she went insane. Forget about going deaf. We're talking flipped-out, gone-down-the-road wac...

    Up With People - The People Under the Stairs question hip-hop's answers.

    If you tell Thes One and Double K of the L.A.-based hip-hop duo The People Under the Stairs that they sound dated or old-school, they take it as the ultimate act of appreciation. "That's the best compliment ever," says MC Thes One. "I don't want to...

    Golden Years - Terraform Records covers the extremes of the local dance spectrum.

    Running an independent record label is always a tricky business proposition. You needn't be a business-school graduate to recognize that music is a big, big industry and that the little guy is often squashed beneath the heavy boot of seemingly omnisc...

    No Doubt - Return of Saturn (Interscope)

    Pop tart Gwen Stefani -- pretty as she can be, with a midriff for the ages -- celebrated a special birthday recently: the dreaded three-oh. And by industry standards -- those sad, governing, youth-obsessed, number-crunching principles -- such a cosmi...

    Ween - White Pepper (Elektra)

    Ween has a perception problem: Non-fans know it best as a somewhat offensive, zany, wacko goofball outfit mainly out to parody and desecrate. But if no one's taking Ween seriously, we can safely blame the victims here, what with such career moves as...

    Soul on Soul - Dave Douglas (RCA Victor)

    Trumpeter Dave Douglas, jazz magazine cover boy and darling of the European jazz set, is multifaceted, to be sure. The introspective classicist can suddenly turn into a fiery post-bop improviser, and the eclectic composer can re-emerge as the all-out...

    Backwash - Cabaret Diosa puts its surf-mambo sound on celluloid.

    Cabaret Diosa -- the nine-piece extravaganza of guitars, horns, mambo, swing, jazz and, of course, dancing -- is a band that exudes more drama than a late-night Springer marathon. It seems fitting, then, that director Erich Toll of Boulder's Big Worl...

    Endless Lionel - Lionel Richie is back. Make your plans accordingly.

    True story: During the mid-'80s, when Lionel Richie, the once and future king of marsh- mellow soul, straddled the pop-music sphere like a colossus, I owned a life-sized cardboard standup of the former Commodore that my malevolent loved ones and I wo...
