    Soulive - Here's an improv-based act that's learned the art of restraint.

    Personally, I just can't stand doing the same thing all the time," says Soulive drummer Alan Evans. "And all of us feel the same way. I think a lot of musicians, no matter what you're doing, you always feel the need to reinvent yourself." Subseque...

    A Moveable Feast - Meadowlark

    Denver has an absolute embarrassment of riches when it comes to singer-songwriters. Attempting to determine who's the best -- well, that's just a fool's errand, as I can tell you, because I have to do it every year for this paper's annual Best of Den...

    Bjrk - Volta Elektra Records

    At this point in her career, Bjrk probably isn't going to win over any new fans. Those who didn't like her before won't start with this release. Volta is challenging, confusing and likely to grate on the nerves, similar to the beatbox-driven Medulla...

    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Baby 81 RCA

    On 2005's Howl, the Rebels stepped sideways, turning down the fuzz tone in favor of a more acoustic-based take on folk and blues. But don't come to Baby 81 expecting additional twists. The disc marks a return to BRMC's signature sound, and while it's...

    Deca - The Hedonist Excess Entertainment

    Deca probably has one of the most distinct voices in local hip-hop. His gruff and rigid vocal style, which recalls an alto-voiced Supernatural, is one of his strengths; it grabs your attention instantly, even if it's a bit monotonous. Lyrically, Deca...

    The Inactivists - Dreaded Concept Album Self-released

    Thanks for the warning -- not that a heads-up was really necessary. After all, Dreaded Concept Album, which will be feted at a 5 p.m. show on Saturday, May 5, at the Larimer Lounge, isn't a rock opera in the traditional (i.e., pretentious) sense. Ins...

    When Keigo Oyamada, aka Cornelius, performed at Austin's South by Southwest confab in 1998, he was touted as "the Japanese Beck" -- an honorific that was as dopey as it was inaccurate. In truth, Fantasma, his first recording to be widely distributed ...

    Hey, Kids

    Nine. That's the number of shows that the Heyday has actually played. In this week's Beatdown, I speculated that number was fewer than fifty. And before the ink was even dry on that column, I received an e-mail from Heyday bassist Pete Wynn -- whose ...

    Speed Dealers - Megadeth is still heavy after all these years.

    One of the last speed-metal bands from the golden age, Megadeth remains forever fast and furious in form and function. The band's latest album, United Abominations, goes old-school, eschewing the overblown studio production and soaring anthems of rec...
