Gimme danger

By REYAN ALI  |  July 6, 2010

That disgruntlement wasn't assuaged by the Devils' break-up in 2001 — a dissolution made official with a live album titled R.I.P. (Sub Pop). But by 2006, they were having spotty reunions. Last spring, they started to record six new songs — their first in close to a decade, though there's no word on a release. Still, the Devils are largely best live, and Manny offers an old piece of advice that's always useful for enjoying this bleakly amusing stuff: "If you're going to go to a show, it should be a party. Have fun, dammit."

    Wild Belle's multi-ethnic allegiances — Afropop, reggae, and rocksteady — fuse into American indie-pop and classic rock. Results are, at varying times, tropical, tepid, and tempestuous.
  •   THE LUMINEERS AIM FOR THE RAFTERS  |  February 01, 2013
    Jeremiah Fraites isn't famous — at least not yet. The drummer of the Lumineers, the folk trio who experienced an outrageously fruitful 2012, is talking to me two days before appearing on the January 19 Saturday Night Live, but he doesn't sound convinced that his band have crossed the fame threshold.
  •   PHANTOM GLUE COME INTO FOCUS  |  January 23, 2013
    Variations of "nightmarish" and "psychedelic" come up repeatedly as Matt Oates describes his band's work — which makes sense, given that Phantom Glue trace their roots back to Slayer, the Jesus Lizard, and cult post-hardcore act KARP.
