    A to Z

    As I wrote about last year, our music blog A to Z (blogs.riverfronttimes.com/atoz) has somewhat replaced the aim of this column: to discuss local music goings-on and happenings. The immediate nature of the blog lets me expand our coverage by augment...

    Slice of Life - John Vanderslice celebrates warmer weather with an exclusive mix of tunes.

    When erudite indie rocker John Vanderslice played Saint Louis University's Billiken Club last May (which was a few months before the release of his latest album, Emerald City), a very special thing happened. During the encore, he led his band and th...

    John Henry & the Engine - Under the Yellow Moon (Home Tone Records)

    On Under the Yellow Moon, it's unclear if John Henry & the Engine send us their greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey, or Columbia, Missouri. The quartet is so steeped in Springsteenisms -- piano-led epics, small-town heartbreaks and a heavy relian...

    Unwed Sailor

    Unwed Sailor is a fitting name for a band that's geographically restless enough to have called Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C., Mississippi and Little Rock, Arkansas, home in the past. Currently located in Lawrence, Kansas -- and buoyed by the rec...

    The Modern Skirts

    Athens, Georgia's pop legacy is well-preserved by the Modern Skirts, a quartet that has gracefully grown into its skin since purchasing a piano for $75 three years ago. Ben Folds' bittersweetness, the Beach Boys' spot-on harmonies and plenty of whol...

    Via Audio

    The three guys and one gal of Via Audio may have formed while at Boston's Berklee College of Music, but the quartet possesses little of the pretentiousness that often accompanies formal training. Which isn't to say that the quartet isn't versatile: ...

    Peter Mulvey

    Over the last decade, the Massachusetts label Signature Sounds has been quietly assembling a sparkling roster of folkies who seem more interested in mastering songcraft than they do sipping the sonic vanilla syrup of latte nation. Milwaukee native P...

    Dan Deacon

    If there is in fact a fine line between genius and madness, Dan Deacon takes that line, bellows distorted nonsensical lyrics and dances back and forth across it. While critics and hipsters fawned over Deacon's dense, absurdist style of electronica l...

    Minus Story

    Minus Story is abashedly charismatic yet also scientifically dedicated to bringing the rock noise. It's like one of those chemistry-circus things that college students put on for elementary school kids -- charming nerds in white coats making chemica...

    Napalm Death

    You have to to hand it to Napalm Death. Few bands in the realm of metal have had such an original vision and stuck to it for so long without selling out, getting stale or throwing in the towel. For more than twenty years, the Birmingham, England, ba...

    Battles, Mirrored: Hot Jam of the Year

    So, New York's Battles has had an album, Mirrored, out since May. It's pretty much insane; I can't really even describe what it is they do. It's like if a droning Krautrock band took a crash-course in bizarro disco and no-wave skronk, since Mirrored'...
