Alice Cooper

Theatre of Death: Live at Hammersmith (DVD)

Bigger Picture Group

4 out of 5 stars

In this current era of revitalized horror movies and music, Alice Cooper is enjoying a renaissance of his own. After some lean years, this 2009 concert DVD/CD shows Cooper’s stage show and timeless shock rock in all its glory.

Holy Sons

Survivalist Tales

Partisan Records

4.5 out of 5 stars

This is the ninth solo album by Emil Amos, the drummer from Om and Grails, under his moniker Holy Sons. The album, entirely recorded by Amos, alone, is a dark folk release at heart, backed by some subtle electronica and soaring soundscapes of obscure orchestral pop.

The Moondoggies

Tidelands

Hardly Art

4 out of 5 stars

When the band’s publicist referenced The Band, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Blitzen Trapper, and Fleet Foxes in the release, I called bullshit. But truth be told, those descriptives are apropos. Tidelands is an unapologetic nod to those influences, but also wonderfully original. The album takes its name from a remote area outside of Ketchikan, Alaska, where lead guitar and vocalist Kevin Murphy used to live — south of my old home town of Petersburg.
