Live In Stuttgart 1975 (Mute). Review by Bob Pomeroy.
Peter Stampfel’s 20th Century (Louisiana Red Hot). Review by Julius C. Lacking.
You can say that bedrock funk bassist Bootsy Collins is The One, and you would be right on so many levels.
Sound Salvation is resurrected with a howlingly good Halloween playlist that will weak the dead at your All Hallow’s Eve bash.
To make illuminati hotties for your gathering, splash melody and harsh noise into a tumbler, drop in some production trickery, and shake until you hear a dizzying howl emerge
Hissing steam and spitting fire, the Old 97s chew up the rails and cross-ties by playing country music with a punk attitude.
Bill Callahan has been wandering the halls of music for quite some time now, his deep voice and aimless arrangements a constant hypnotic presence.
No need to worry about offending delicate sensibilities with this playlist. We’re not talking about profanity, so just take the title at face value.
As you may suspect, Peter Bjorn and John hail from Sweden, and as you may expect, they do Anglophonic indie pop better than the Anglophones.
They Might Be Giants returned to Vinyl Music Hall in Pensacola for an early stop on the tour behind the band’s latest album, “I Like Fun.” Of course, Julio Diaz was there.
Shonen Knife play their first show in Tampa. If their fans have their way, it won’t be Shonen Knife’s last visit. Bob Pomeroy fills in the details.
Nanobots (Idlewild). Review by Eric J. Iannelli.
Saul Conrad may be more coffee house than dive bar, but his Poison Packet is still worth pouring into your musical drink.

Artificial Heart (Jonathan Coulton). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Atari Teenage Riot came to Firestone Live to pound out the techno into a modern political landscape where the people rise above totalitarian and authoritarian control. It’s the kind of futuristic idealism that local scribe Eric Donath can’t miss, and to ice that cake is Otto von Schirach, a bass-heavy freak with street-cred like a rap-sheet symphony.
Join Us (Idlewild). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Keep This Love Goin’ (Clang! / Big Notes). Review by Carl F Gauze.
OK Go and opening acts The Booze and Earl Greyhound rock Firestone Live in Orlando.
