  • Rocky Votolato: Hospital Handshakes

    Hospital Handshakes is a milestone in Rocky Votolato’s career and one that would do well to serve as a springboard for all his efforts going forward.

    Rocky Votolato could have easily followed his muse in any number of directions. Hailing from a small Texas town, he could have become a country singer who hailed the virtues of small town life and the roads that lead away. His name would befit that of a rough and tumble fighter, had he opted to go, say, the wrestling route. Heavily influenced by the sounds of punk and hardcore, he could have gone insurgent regardless,…

  • Muse Want to Use Real-Life Drones on 'Drones' Tour

    High-concept British rockers Muse are gearing up to unleash their Drones on the world, and they'll do it in more ways than one. Sure, they're releasing an album called Drones, but they'll also release actual drones at their live concerts. Speaking with L.A.'s Alt 98.7 [via NME], the band's Matt Bellamy explained that they hope to fly drones over their audiences on an upcoming tour. "We always like to use the modern technology in our shows, the latest video screens or light shows, lasers, whatever is out there," he said. "Drones are obviously an interesting thing to try to...

  • Quiet Company: Transgressor

    This is a record of top-notch power pop that’s a strong candidate for one of 2015’s best in its genre.

    Transgressor, Quiet Company’s fourth album, is a big, bright collection of hard-hitting power pop. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Taylor Muse has found a near-perfect balance of hummable melody and guitar crunch. It’s the kind of sound that invites comparisons to classic power pop acts like Cheap Trick and Weezer (yeah, Weezer now counts as classic power pop. Feel old?), and their canny use of synths brings to mind the New Pornographers. First single “Understand the Problem” is an…

  • Jackie Greene Rocks San Diego's Hipster Haven

    Greene won’t be pigeonholed, and his adventurous muse finds appeal in wider audiences each year.

    It had been a long time coming for some San Diego music fans: a rock ‘n’ roll show in a spacious venue in the city’s hippest neighborhood. The city has sadly been venue-challenged for years. Most shows either take place 25 miles up the coast at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, downtown at the cramped House of Blues with its poor acoustics and non-fan-friendly policies, or at tiny clubs like the Casbah or…

  • Simon Joyner: Grass, Branch & Bone

    Call this beautiful record what you will: late-night or rainy-day music. Whatever, it demands active listening.

    Simon Joyner’s new album is not going to be the one that brings him to the masses, and he’s probably okay with that, having made it known in numerous interviews that he is content to spend his quality time with his family and his antique business. Joyner writes songs in the service of his own personal muse, and, while he is appreciative of being appreciated, he can work from the perspective of owing the music…
