    Five hot new albums and what we thought of them.
      But Mastodon gets judged on a harsh scale — perhaps too harsh. This is a band that has released flawless records. They’ve been called one of the greatest hard rock bands of all time for a reason. They’re visionaries who can make any song heavy, and make any heavy song emotional and beautiful.

  • Up for Review

    Our music team takes a crack at reviewing some of the latest local releases.
      Back in the day, a big chunk of The Inlander’s Local Music Issue was comprised of reviews and write-ups of every single band in town. Big undertaking.

  • 'Hot Sauce Committee Part 2,' Beastie Boys

    They're back, and almost as good as they used to be.
      Beastie Boy on “Long Burns the Fire.” That’s the kind of boast they’ve been making for, oh, 30 years or so. On one hand, it’s getting ridiculous: This is the first album they’ve actually rapped on in seven full years (and the first good one in 12) — of course.

  • 'In Love With Oblivion,' Crystal Stilts

    On their sophomore effort, Crystal Stilts fell short of our expectations.
      The triumphant “Berlin Wall” bemoans, “When we get well they sell another magic spell,” but the track’s underlying hope is reflected in the way it builds layer upon layer (with Spoon’s Britt Daniel singing backup vocals), growing ever larger until it practically bursts at the seams.

    Capillary Action crafts an intense, offbeat brew of avant-jazz and other stuff
      Will Rogers once joked: “If you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, wait a minute and it will change.” And if you don’t like a Capillary Action song, just wait 20 seconds. It&r

    Southern rock for a dark night
      Drive-By Truckers albums always feature dark tales of the downtrodden, confused, bitter, evil, brokenhearted, and messed-up. But Go Go Boots?.

  • 'Cape Dory,' Tennis

    Tennis was fun while it was underground, but kinda lost its edge in the studio.
      The backstory is too good not to mention: A married couple from Denver quit their jobs and spend eight months sailing around the world. They’re both part-time musicians, so while on the boat, they write a bunch of songs. Upon returning, they release demo versions of the tracks, get instant love from the blogosphere, and sign a record deal.

    Or, how Eliza Rickman learned to stop worrying and love the song.
      From ages to 10 to 20, the Los Angeles-based performer says, she hated her voice so much that she refused to sing a single note. Her code of silence only ended when she was forced to take a vocal class at Azusa Pacific University, where she was studying ragtime piano.

  • 'The King is Dead,' The Decemberists

    It's nice to see the Decemberists dialing back the drama a tad.
      The Decemberists broke apart from the indie rock pack with the kind of ambitious artistic statements most artists can’t make. The band’s ability to weave intricate and powerful narratives into each record is legendary ­— a trait that reached its zenith on 2009’s Hazards of Love,.

  • 'Showroom of Compassion,' Cake

    We're scrambling to find our old copy of Fashion Nugget.
      If meth heads weren’t so busy selling their stuff, they might have beat Owen Hart to making music like this: jacked-up, cranked-out, over-thetop metal with a perma-boner. Save for their drummer, who is no Dave Lombardo (yet), they make Slayer look like a bunch of old guys.

  • 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,' Kanye West

    Kanye's new album is worth the hype.
      him all you want, but there’s no denying Kanye West is pure entertainment. Twitter rants and award show stunts? Better than TMZ. A bizarre 35-minute video to introduce the new album? Couldn’t look away. Of course, none of it would matter if the music wasn’t just as entertaining, and Twisted Fantasy.

      Gregg Gillis (aka Girl Talk) is the king of the music mash-up. If you’re not familiar, it’s like this: Take guitar riffs, drum parts, vocal lines and other pieces of existing songs, and bl
