    Charlie Musselwhite Spent the Summer of Love with the Blues - The Harmonica Honcho

    When the Bay Area's Summer of Love is discussed, the chat chiefly regards the music, politics, and drugs that shaped a generation -- but that discussion is nearly always focused on rock 'n' roll. That all-important year of 1967, however, was also a ...

    Beirut's Zach Condon Brasses Up the Herbst Theatre - The Flying Club Cup forsakes Eastern European baroque for a more nuanced, French-influenced sound.

    Zach Condon's commitment to his anachronistic, European-influenced music is apparent upon entering his new Brooklyn apartment. He has turned the big room into a studio, and he sleeps in what's essentially an oversized closet. He's also very committe...

    Imperial Teen - The Hair, the TV, the Baby &the Band (Merge)

    Musically, Imperial Teen's fourth full-length CD, The Hair, the TV, the Baby & the Band, doesn't sound that much different from its first, Seasick, released way back in 1996. There's still the same chugga-chugga guitar riffs, the crashing drum fills...

    Balkan Beat Box - Nu Med (J-Dub)

    Imagine the frantic live drumming of Crash Worship mixed with the chorus girls from a Russian circus, throw in some wailing Eastern European horns, and you've got the tip of the Balkan Beat Box iceberg. The group also liberally sprinkles Israeli rhy...

    Chemical Brothers - We Are the Night (Astralwerks)

    On their sixth album of new material, the Chemical Brothers aren't breaking much new ground. But if you've been a fan of their big, floor-filling anthems from records past, you'll find plenty of blinking sound effects and booming drums here. We Are ...

    Mekons - Natural (Quarterstick)

    The Mekons are one of the few surviving bands from the "glory days" of punk rock -- indeed, '07 marks their 30th anniversary. The reason for their longevity -- aside from the members' engagement with an assortment of musical activities apart from Mo...

    Paul Van Dyk: hardest working Berliner in showbiz

    With the passing of James Brown late last year, Berlin's superstar DJ Paul Van Dyk might now assume the title of hardest-working man in show business. Or in any event, Van Dyk and his flight cases certainly have amassed the most frequent flyer miles...

    The Energys: hot-wired Japanese punk explodes in S.F.

    Morrissey has turned from a gangly egghead into a debonair crooner without losing his self-deprecating wit: At his birthday show in May, the suit-clad singer gestured to himself and dryly said, "Let this be a warning -- this is what 48 looks like." ...

    Contents Under Pressure - Bad Brains transcend a stormy history to Build a Nation

    From Arthur Lee to Daniel Johnston and Kurt Cobain, there's plenty of evidence that emotional instability and batshit craziness can contribute to innovative songwriting. Given that correlation, it's no shocker that D.C. hardcore outfit Bad Brains ha...

    The War in Duluth - Low fights for aesthetic freedom

    When established musicians deviate from an expected aesthetic, they often polarize audiences. Radiohead released its highly experimental departure Kid A in 2000, for example, and critics called it everything from "commercial suicide" to "the most ec...

    PJ Harvey - White Chalk (Island)

    Sometimes the simplest music is the most affecting. So it goes with PJ Harvey's new studio album, White Chalk, which often feels like a sequel to Bjrk's Vespertine. Absent are the scorched-earth guitars and feral vocals for which the songwriter is ...

    Oakley Hall - I'll Follow You (Merge)
