    Modest Mouse - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank Epic

    Ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr knows a little something about dealing with strong-willed vocalists, so it's no surprise that his contributions to the poppiest Modest Mouse record yet are solid. But it's still a treat to hear how focused Isaac Brock ...

    George Inai - This Foolish Music (Self-released)

    George Inai's latest boasts the most creative design of any local release in recent memory: a modified digipack with folk-art graphics from which the disc rises, pop-up style, when opened. The music inside would have to be mighty good to measure up, ...

    Menomena - Saturday, April 7, hi-dive, 720-570-4500.

    Crave - Play what you love.

    For as long as there has been an underground rock community, there has been a connected, collective subconscious that randomly makes and kills trends. Remember trucker hats? Swooshy haircuts? Or, God, even Locust tattoos? The scene makes you do fu...

    Sight Seeing - SXSW was a real eyeful -- and earful.

    Being blind is no laughing matter -- which means that jokes about being blind aren't funny. Still, as I waited at DIA last week for a flight to Austin and South by Southwest, I couldn't help but snort at one overheard comment. After handing him his b...

    Eyes and Ears - Eyes and Ears Not Bad Records

    There are half a million people in Denver, but it seems like there are only about twenty musicians to go around. The local scene is incredibly incestuous, with folks moonlighting in at least a couple of acts and the same names popping up again and ag...
