Them Crooked Vultures Rock in the Studio in New Web Clip

August 19th, 2009
As we type, Them Crooked Vultures are likely already taking the stage at the Melkweg club in Amsterdam for their second-ever concert. For those who couldn’t make it out to Holland — or to the supergroup’s first concert in Chicago following Lollapalooza — Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones have given fans a sampling of some seriously ear-blasting hard rock by posting a brief ...

Up first, Raconteur Benson returns with his fourth solo LP, which he recorded with Pixies and Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton.

Breaking: Cage the Elephant

August 19th, 2009
Who: Bowling Green, Kentucky blues-punk quintet Cage the Elephant, featuring singer Matt Shultz and guitarist Brad Shultz and a pack of high school buddies. The band is among this year’s breakout rookie rock acts after releasing a rowdy self-titled debut anchored by slacker single “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked.” Sounds Like: Cage the Elephant draw from the White Stripes’ blues-punk grit, Beck’s lo-fi speak-sung vocals and a dash of the ’90s rap-rock revolution. After becoming ...

Fricke’s Picks: AC/DC’s Demon Seed Angus Khan

August 19th, 2009
Reasons to give some ear to Black Leather Soul (Nickel and Dime), by the Los Angeles power-rock five Angus Khan: The band’s name is brilliant; guitarist Frank Meyer and bassist Dino Everett were in ace neo-Stooges group the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs; the album opens with a hot cover of “Midnight Moses,” by the Sensational Alex Harvey Band; and the whiff of AC/DC is strong in Derek Christensen’s son-of-Bon Scott vocals and the chanted choruses. You get ...
