Album Review: Girls - Album


Girls - Album

On their debut album "Album," San Francisco band Girls deliver a messy, spectacular collision of singer-songwriter sensibilities and noisy, bratty indie rock.

Album Review: Brother Ali - Us


Brother Ali - Us

Success hasn't diluted Brother Ali's message but on his new release, "Us", he stops short of drawing a line in the sand.

Album Review: Imogen Heap - Ellipse


Imogen Heap - Ellipse

Imogen Heap's third solo album, "Ellipse," is finally here. This new record feels long overdue, considering her last release was in 2005.

Album Review: The Arctic Monkeys - Humbug


The Arctic Monkeys - Humbug

"Humbug," the band's third album, was recorded at Rancho De Luna in Joshua Tree and was produced by Queens of the Stone Age /Eagles of Death Metal's Josh Homme.

Album Review: xx - The xx


The xx - xx

Wait for the sun to set. Find a couch, and someone you like to share it with. Put this album from The XX on your CD player, on repeat. All the songs sound the same, so you won't have to worry about changing the music.
