    Facebook caps you off at 5,000 friends. I killed it after 500.
      I killed my Facebook. I took it out to Miller’s Crossing and put my finger on the trigger. The mouse button, I mean. It pleaded with me, over and over. It begged me not to do it. I shook my head

  • Too Stubborn to Die

    Nine years is plenty of time to kill a band. But not Deadones.
      But despite the odds (and the name), the Deadones are far from dead. Over their nine years, they’ve played hundreds of shows and become an ever-present institution in the Spokane music scene. And the best part is, during the past nine years, they’ve also become really effing good.

  • 'Further,' The Chemical Brothers

    The perfect soundtrack for hammer, gearshift or spliff.
      The new record by the Chemical Brothers makes me want to do drugs. A lot of drugs. Oddly enough, it also compels me to work my ass off. Drive somewhere — just do something. Anything. This is a p

  • 'Something for Everybody,' Devo

    Their name stands for devolution, and their new album examines humans' backward development.
      I received the news that Devo was working on their first album in 20 years with dork-level enthusiasm and dick-level skepticism — leaning on the latter. I feared that gimmicky, satirical, Intern

    With help of a ‘zine, a bi-monthly tournament and the indelible lure of the game itself, pinball is on a roll.
      is one of the few things in the world that can convert a nonbeliever into a zealot with a mere two dollars’ worth of quarters. Everyone loves pinball, even if they don’t know it. All you gotta do is get them in front of a machine — the machine takes care of the rest.

    Think you need to be a connoisseur to attend the Spring Barrel Tasting? Think again.
      Hi, my name is Chris, and I have a problem. I like wine, but I know nothing about it. I have no skill in plucking out the nuances of aroma, flavor and texture. I generally opt for drinking straight ou

    But wait — this ain’t no typical Beatles mash-up.
      THE BEATLESEveryday ChemistryHHHH “Oh, another goddamn Beatles mash-up,” you croak to yourself with a sideways scowl, face-deep in Chocodiles as you pretend to read Pitchfork. But wait &

  • 'The Brutalist Bricks,' Ted Leo and the Pharmacists

      Traversing a mountainous range of sound, Leo and his fearless Pharmacists deftly maneuver the peaks and troughs of power pop, mod, punk and lo-fi to emerge with a bright and energetic sound. The Bruta

    The Whitefield Brothers spent a decade and a half traveling the world and have now produced something that makes you comfortable with world music
      It makes you feel cultured and adventurous, like a pre-pubescent teenage boy lipping pie-eyed through old National Geographics.

  • "Scrambles," Bomb the Music Industry!

    Scrambles blazes through 13 tracks and uses nearly as many musicians — on everything from drum machines to Game Boys.
      Hype is tough. Vampire Weekend received their fair share of backlash for their first album and their particular blend of melodic indie and Afropop. There’s admittedly a certain amount of pretention involved — the group refers to their own style as “Upper West Side Soweto.

    Hormones ran feverishly high at the Twilight: New Moon premiere. Then the movie started.
      An hour before showtime, and it’s already a hopping tweenybopper freak scene. The new Twilight movie, New Moon, is playing on 10 screens at the AMC 20 downtown, midnight of opening day, and every theater is sold out.

    Empyrean makes a mix-tape to ease the transition
      There’s a little of everything here. Bodhi Drip serves a sloppy slice of garage funk dripping with Zappa. Henry Nordstrom and Vaughn Wood thrust us into introspective melancholia. Imperial Sparks’ diverse instrumentation pick us up. Jedidiah the Pilot throws us against the wall.

    A double-disc, deluxe edition of one of the smartest, broodingest, horniest records of all time
      The double-disc, deluxe edition of Pulp’s masterpiece Different Class drops next week, and the album is just as smart, brooding and horny as it was in 1995.

    Lounge music for the Robot Chicken generation
      But even more so, Mux Mool’s music carries a certain animated quality — a subtle, cartoonish playfulness and humor.

  • "Xenophanes," Omar Rodriguez-Lopez

    The latest from the Mars Volta's Rodriguez-Lop is still littered with wonderfully characteristic weirdness, but it’s still good — even easy — to crack open.
      The album is still littered with the wonderful weirdness that’s characteristic of Rodriguez-Lopez’s music: bizarre guitar effects, strange noises, creepy baritone vocal overdubs and occasional psychedelic freak-outs.

    Political music, not musical politics
      That’s Cobra Skulls’ singer/bass player Devin Peralta’s straightforward response to a probably stupid question. The Reno, Nevada, band’s music plays out in similar fashion: razor-sharp, energetic punk rock that touches on a variety of social issues without being preachy or.
