The Dead Weather

Sea of Cowards

Warner Brothers

5 out of 5 stars

Yeah, Jack White’s talented, but Alison Mosshart is beyond amazing. The best, psychedelically-crazy, female-fronted album I can recall since Janis dropped Cheap Thrills way back when. It’s still early but this could be one of the best albums of the year.

Mike Patton

Mondo Cane

Ipecac Records

4 out of 5 stars

The multi-talented vocalist from Faith No More takes a 30-piece orchestra, his unearthly vocal talents, and tackles a bunch of Italian standards. You can see the sheer joy this project is bringing Patton in the early videos that have been released. If you are a fan of “the man of a thousand bands” check this out.


The Gentle Art of Music

AFM Records

3.5 out of 5 stars

It may be a little premature for a career retrospective after 10 years, but the German art rock band that grew out of a Pink Floyd cover band has done just that with The Gentle Art of Music. Not surprisingly, early Rissetto, Post, Wallner and Lang (RPWL) is, in many ways, a Floyd rip-off, but they’re good at it. And as this retrospective shows, as the band continues its career, they continue to find their own voice in the progressive rock world.
