    LOVE Review by Jen Cray.

  • Jet

    Jet

    Jet‘s inspired blending of garage and classic rock shouldn’t work, but it does, even six years after plowing into America’s consciousness.

  • U2

    U2

    U2 packs the biggest rock show in history into The Spaceship and takes it on the road to touch the hearts of 75,000 fans in Tampa and outer space. Jen Cray laughs, she cries.

    Kicking off Ink 19‘s new series, Labels We Love, S D Green talks to ZE Records co-founder Michel Esteban about defining a sound and establishing a label during New York’s 1970s creative zeitgeist, and the resurrection of the label that was once home to Lydia Lunch, Suicide, and Kid Creole & the Coconuts.

    Now or Heaven (Merge). Review by Andrew Coulon.

  • Glasvegas

    Glasvegas

    Scottish rockers Glasvegas rode into New York City on a wave of hype for two sold-out shows. With only one proper album to flaunt, the band nevertheless proved to Kiran Aditham that they can bring arena-sized sound to a mid-sized theater.

  • Obscured by Clouds

    Obscured by Clouds

    William Weikart, the mastermind behind the band Obscured by Clouds, is one literate and surprising person. Tim Wardyn unveils Weikart’s impressive cast of influences (including Chris Cornell and Baroque music), how ex-girlfriends contributed to one of the best songs on their album Psycheclectic, and how his bandmate Thee Slayer Hippy got his name.

  • Hanson

    Hanson

    There’s more to Hanson than “MmmBop,” and the all-grown-up band proves it at Chicago’s House of Blues. Cindy Barrymore says the brothers’ cuteness has worn off. You be the judge.

    Only By The Night (RCA). Review by Christopher Long.

  • Coldplay

    Coldplay

    Ink 19‘s Jen Cray trades her low expectations for staunch admiration when she experiences the charm of Coldplay firsthand. Almost as good as U2?
