Music to Your Ears

Romeo Needs a Name—My favorite three-car-garage lotharios, Romeo Goes To Hell, are practically naked right now, having rejected the band name they've rocked for the last five years. I enjoy publicly humiliating them, so let's all listen in on their innermost musings on the subject, shall we? From the band's Rocksquawk.com forum, as posted by bassist, vocalist, art director and songwriting/sex machine, Levi Eleven.

All Roads Lead To Home

Soular brings it's first national release to Burque

Marsh can't hold a day job. He tried for a while, but touring with his ambient-rock band, Soular, just wiped the "punctual employee" right off his résumé.

Deadlee is pissed (and hot) and not going to take it any more.

"It's Our Music, Too"

Gay hip-hop artists shouldn't surprise

Los Angeles rapper Deadlee wasn't wanting for media attention last year. On his release Assault with a Deadlee Weapon he fired back at hip-hop's most homophobic MCs: Eminem, DMX and 50 Cent, even accusing 50 of having deep-seated homosexual tendencies:

Picture this: RX Bandits

Show Up!

RX Bandits

Former pop-ska figureheads have become a prog rock outfit to be reckoned with

Not so long ago, the RX Bandits were another cog in the gear of what seemed like an unstoppable ska machine. Propelled by bands like the Bandits, along with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Reel Big Fish, the movement swept up millions of teens across the country … for about three months.

Sonic Reducer

Andrew Bird Armchair Apocrypha · Modest Mouse We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank · El-P I'll Sleep When You're Dead

The greatest lyricists in my computer's music listings seem to move closer to one another like old friends as albums are added. Bird here is one brief scroll from Ani DiFranco, but further from David Byrne and too many away from Paul Simon to prove this theory. In an ordered universe, this release would put him but a hair's width away from the best wordsmiths. It's Bird's breathtaking prose, charming tenor, his willingness to use breakbeats beneath his violin plucking and subtle arrangements. Fans of beauty should find themselves in close proximity to this disc.

EVENT HORIZON (Tuesday, Jan 24)

Not Just Red

Chevelle • alternative • Black Map • Dinosaur Pile-Up • rock

Chevelle, an indie band from the Midwest, portrays their hard sound—expressed with exasperated vocals, a muscular rhythms and chunky guitar riffs that repeatedly drift off into tangential melodies—as an artful thing, comparable to '90s peers like Tool. And they do sound like Tool—if their latest single “Door to Door Cannibals” is any indication—when that band was at its peak at the end of the last millennium. Whether this particular vernacular is still credible in a rocanrol world that is rapidly evolving away from rocanrol remains to be seen, yet Chevelle does provide solid affirmation that such beefy sounds are still commercially, if not aesthetically viable. Currently a familial unit comprised of brothers Pete and Sam Loeffler as well as their brother-in-law Dean Bernardini, Chevelle continues to use themes of darkness and domination to draw radio-friendly audiences worldwide. Burqueños can get a taste of their rockingly reserved rampage when the trio visit our town on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Black Map and Dinosaur Pile-Up open this 13+ show at the El Rey that costs between $25-$45.
