Lights, camera, action rock!

The Raveonettes | In and Out of Control

Vice (2009)
Jesus and Mary Chain comparisons aside, this Danish duo established their sound eight years ago by patching together an aural quilt of retro-rock roots — from garage to surf to wall of sound — and haven't wavered since.

Air | Love 2

Warner Bros. (2009)
The French duo of Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoît Dunckel captured the imagination of a subset of the listening public at the turn of the millennium with their playfully patient soundtrack music.

The Black Heart Procession | Six

Temporary Residence (2009)
Formed in sunny San Diego, the Black Heart Procession write the kind of gloomy, downcast dirges you'd expect from less hospitable climates.

A Place To Bury Strangers | Exploding Head

Mute (2009)
When it comes to the resurgence of all things shoegaze, only one question remains: how literal do you want it?

On the town with ProTown

Hip-hop heads fill the Bucket
Last Friday, a hip-hop showcase courtesy of upstart label ProTown Records, founded by Provy rap vets Romen Rok and DJ Al Bums (among others), invaded the Grant Building in Pawtucket, and the showcase was a rousing success.

Linda Oh Trio | Entry

Linda Oh Trio (2009)
Chinese-Australian bassist Linda Oh (now living in NYC) favors a spare setting on this debut: trumpet, bass, and drums.

Kurt Vile | Childish Prodigy

Matador (2009)
Kurt Vile's punny name, as well as the title of his latest full-length album, bespeaks low-art subversion.

Whiskey. Beer. Rock 'n' roll!

Girl Haggard and Hank Sinatra Jr. join forces and raise hell
Country-fried rawk quartet Girl Haggard have already achieved the goals founder Aaron Jaehnig drafted up when the bigman bassist and bartender-about-town formed the band with Hendersonville, Tennessee native Mandy Allan back in January.

Review: The Stone Roses | The Stone Roses (Legacy Edition)

Silvertone/Legacy (2009)
The Stone Roses' 1989 debut LP has been deified by such dubious tastemakers as the NME and Oasis's Noel Gallagher — and the rest of us really like it too.

Gus Gus | 24-7

Kompact (2009)
Letting the music take control is a primary tenet of the dance-floor ethos — but that's only because dance music is by nature submissive. Even at its most sonically rich, dance music remains a utility, and even when it demands your attention, it does so in service to your good times.

Review: Brand New | Daisy

DGC/Interscope (2009)
Defiance and punk used to go hand in hand, like peanut butter and jelly, or S&M leather wear and pogoing.
By: LEOR GALIL  |  September 15, 2009


Off the record?

Ten albums to get . . . while we still have albums
Pity the album. After a half-century of embarrassingly public body issues, our essential rock unit has not entered the new millennium looking very healthy. EPs are way more in vogue, MP3s have intangibility on their side, and 12-inches just sound impressive.

Review: Polvo | In Prism

Merge (2009)
All a-bubble over my first listen to In Prism , I took to the Internet, where I learned that the album "is required listening for any bands still using guitars."
