  • 'Come Around Sundown,' Kings of Leon
  • 'Come Around Sundown,' Kings of Leon

    Here's what happens when a good band goes arena-rock.
      Well, the transformation is complete and absolute. With this record, Kings of Leon have become the U2 of Tennessee — complete with nothing but soaring choruses and chimey-reverbed Edge guitars. How did such a cool band turn its sound into harmless arena rock so quickly?.

  • 'Write About Love,' Belle & Sebastian

    Taking some time away from the studio serves Belle & Sebastian well on its new record.
      There is nothing like hearing a girl scream. Laura Pleasants, guitarist for Kylesa, never screeches or wails, but she yells in a way that is so unhinged and guttural it is almost impossible to tell, at times, if it’s the voice of a guy or a girl. Androgyny and psychedelic strangeness are the best parts of Spiral Shadow,.

  • 'Le Noise,' Neil Young

    Neil Young. Electric guitar. And a whole lotta lessons.
      Young was an old man in his early 20s, and his lyrics reflected it. Things haven’t changed. He’s still an old man, even in his 60s. “Hitchhiker” is a classic Neil Young warning/ lecture song: a five-minute autobiography that chronicles his life through his drugs du jour.

  • 'God Willing & The Creek Don’t Rise,' Ray Lamontagne & The Pariah Dogs

    Ray LaMontagne conjures a sound you've heard before — and that's a good thing.
      “New York City’s Killing Me” is the kind of song you hear in the sad part of good movies. “Like Rock %uFFFD Roll Radio” is a long ode to emotional comfort, and “Old Before Your Time” is a great meditation on the Gen Xers’ move into an early middle age..

  • Choice Cuts

    A lot of local acts released albums in the past month. We put on our headphones.
      ODYSSEYSchematicsJerrick Crites is probably one hell of a Guitar Hero player. As the guitarist for the longstanding local instrumental metal band, Odyssey, Crites puts most other local guitarists to s

  • 'Wilderness Heart,' Black Mountain

    On Wilderness Heart, Black Mountain gets caught up in clouds of smoke.
      The songs on this record tend to tickle you in all the right places musically, but the pedestrian stoner lyrics sometimes blunt the pleasure.

  • 'Hawk,' Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan

    A nice record — but does it sound familiar?
      the aim of the new Lanegan/Campbell record was to provide music to eat muffins and drink coffee to, well, mission accomplished. This third collaboration between Ellensburg’s favorite son (The Screaming Trees) and the ethereal ex-Belle %uFFFD Sebastian song-whisperer is disappointingly harmless.

  • 'Praise and Blame,' Tom Jones

    He can order from a senior citizen menu, and he's still musically relevant.
      After decades of tiptoeing along the edge of becoming a caricature, Tom Jones has released an album of songs so straight and true that they can’t help but find the heart of even the most cynical

  • 'Street Sounds of Love,' Alejandro Escovedo

    Alejandro Escovedo shows his diversity — and why he has a cult following — with his latest record.
      Alejandro Escovedo winds up his new album with the refrain, “I wanna be your man, I wanna be everything I promised you.” Safe to say he mostly stays true to his word with this 14-song coll
