Big Beat ’59 (Rifle Bird Records). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Dan Sartain doesn’t really care if you know his name, or any of the songs he plays. He just came to remind you that rock ‘n’ roll can still be unsettling… and Matthew Moyer LOVES it.
El Sonido Nuevo (Spark and Shine). Review by Carl F Gauze.
The Kudzu Ranch. Review by Carl F Gauze.
The Last Concert: December 4, 1988 (Eagle Rock entertainment). Review by Carl F Gauze.
“How High The Moon,” indeed. Imelda May‘s tribute to Les Paul & Mary Ford – with Jeff Beck along for the ride – not only caused quite a sensation at the Grammys, it opened America’s eyes and ears to an Irish singing sensation on the rise. Steve Stav recently talked to Ms. May about her big night, guitar god Beck, and her upcoming U.S. tour.

Matthew Moyer is glad that Holly George-Warren and the other compilers of this coffeetable-riffic collection of punk photos fetishize image as much as he does.
Ampgrave (Constellation). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Love & Bombs (Yep Roc). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Believe (Yep Roc Records). Review by Jen Cray.
Colonel J.D. Wilkes, frontman for Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers is perhaps the most captivating live performer in music today. Jen Cray spoke to Coronal about his musical influences, the rockabilly renaissance, and the Andy Griffith show before the band’s show in Winter Park, Florida.
Still Smokin’ After 20 Years (Triple X Records, Swine Song). Review by Carl F Gauze.
