By: BRETT MILANO  |  June 27, 2007


Brad Paisley

5th Gear | Broken Bow
Paisley’s winsome 5th Gear is about as light as Miranda Lambert’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is dark — in a good way.

The Go

Howl on the Haunted Beat You Ride | Cass
Fear not, Nuggets heads: on their new long-player, Jack White’s old bandmates in the Go sound as if they hadn’t heard a note of music made since 1972.
By: MIKAEL WOOD  |  June 26, 2007


Von Südenfed

Tromatic Reflexxions | Domino
On the face of it, Mark E. Smith and Mouse on Mars’ Jan St. Werner and Andi Toma are an unlikely match.
By: SUSANNE BOLLE  |  June 19, 2007



Pasadena | About a Girl
I wonder whether Ozma didn’t title their new album after their suburban Los Angeles home base as a way of distinguishing themselves from Weezer.
By: MIKAEL WOOD  |  June 19, 2007



Nu Mondo | Times Square
The latest talent to emerge from the Cape Verdean archipelago adds new power and sophistication to an alluring national genre.

The Field

From Here We Go Sublime | Kompakt

Nancy Drew: Music from the Motion Picture

Nancy Drew: Music from the Motion Picture | Bulletproof
What do Ned Nickerson and the Nancy Drew soundtrack have in common? Neither gets in Nancy’s way.

Omar Sosa

Promise | Otá
What we get on his latest outing is more often Miles’d-up trancy electric Afropop than what you might think of as Afro-Cuban jazz.
By: JON GARELICK  |  June 12, 2007



Lights at the End of the World | Mute
Heck, they could have made it on Mars.
By: JIM SULLIVAN  |  June 11, 2007
