    • Beck
    • Beck is the modern master of the groove, and Guero is merely the latest example of this. From the opening power chords of "E-Pro," to the Pac-Man cuteness of "Girl," to the dirge-like lullab

    • Massive Attack
    • "Black Milk" knocks me off my feet in this collection of moody and eclectic songs. Massive Attack uses samples and keyboards in a very unique way, but not all the songs pack the same punch.

    • The Strokes
    • The Strokes set the music world on fire with this 2001 album, with headlines declaring that the New York band was here to save Rock and Roll. While the band hasn't made as much of a splash since t

    • Gimme Fiction by Spoon is a terrific album by an Austin band that I was lucky enough to catch on an Austin radio station during a Christmas visit.

iTunes Music Review - The Dresden Dolls

    • The energetic duet of Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione that make up the Dresden Dolls have created a wonderfully haunting sound in their self-titled album. They have been able to construct an immensely full sound from a simple trio of piano, drums, and vocals. Palmer subtly interchanges between creating swells of melody to almost shouting and wailing her lyrics. The effect is stunningly beautiful. A note of caution: Their songs will stick with you throughout the day, so be prepared to be humming or singing well after the CD has stopped (not that this is a bad thing at all).

      Their performances are often described as punk-cabaret. On stage, the music takes on a dramatic-performance style in a costume that is part goth, part mime. If you have the opportunity, a live show is something not to pass up. To check out their look, visit The Dresden Dolls website.
