    Werewolves of Norway - Los Lobos Tienen Mucho Frio

    Ulver are not your grandfather's lycanthropic rock band. They are something much more complex and . . . well, let them explain it, as they do so eloquently in the notes to their Metamorphosis EP from 1999: "Ulver is obviously not a black metal band a...

    Hellspawn Freeze Over - Swedes Stay Put for Satan

    Obstinacy is one of death metal's crowning virtues. The music refuses to cave in to fashion or irony, or feel compelled to mean anythingeven post-9-11. It understands that the riff is its own reward. Grave's Back From the Grave is their first studio...

    So Many Lives - The Bourgeoisie and the Rebel

    Madge forgets a lot recently. On the opening title track of her new record, she forgets just why she worked so hard to get to where she is today. On song two she sings, "I lost my memory in Hollywood" (insert cheap joke about the movie career here). ...

    Your Pictionary Pick - Going Down to Rosedale, Take My Karaoke Mic by My Side

    There's this great scene in CrossroadsBritney Spears's 2002 road-trip feel-gooder, not Ralph Macchio's 1986 guitar-whiz feel-better, though since I haven't seen the Macchio in forever I'm not willing to swear it doesn't also contain this scenewhere...

    Sign on the Dotted Void - Peppy Songs With Hooks and Beatsthe New Underground Craze!

    There are few cultural artifacts more bereft than a major-label album that doesn't get a push. Indie albums are never quite as sad, partially because the common (though not universal) practice of splitting profits 50-50 with the label means acts usua...

    Garage Garage - Me and Apathy Down by the Schoolyard

    Dizzee Rascal's debut single is the point where Euro-terror techno gets crunked up, all boings and claps and sickly keyboards. His text is the battle of the sexes devolved to the schoolyard. Or Stone Age. Dizzee versus "some whore/ bangin at your doo...

    Electric Lady Land - Innocence Executed by Ohm
