Album Review: Live Current Volume 6


Live Current Volume 6

It's hard to believe that it's almost been six years now of recording some of our favorite bands and songwriters here in The Current studios.

Album Review: Them Crooked Vultures


Them Crooked Vultures (self-titled)

My half-witted and not-terribly-insightful observation of this CD is that it is EXACTLY what you think it will sound like, and that my friend is a really good thing.

Album Review: Tegan and Sara - Sainthood


Tegan and Sara - Sainthood

With each new record, single, or collaboration in pop culture, I find myself hoping Teegan and Sara gain wider acceptance and success. With their new album, "Sainthood," have they taken a step in that direction?

Album Review: The Flaming Lips - Embryonic


Flaming Lips - Embryonic

When I expected them to sell out, they made "Embryonic," possibly the most challenging work they've delivered their current fan base at any given time in the band's career. I should have known better. With the Lips, it's best to expect nothing beyond something unexpected.
