One unassuming Monday morning last month, Girl Talk posted a free download of his latest record, All Day, only hours after completing it. The record was promoted with little more than a press release and a couple of tweets, but demand for it nonetheless exceeded the server space his label allocated, crashing its website almost immediately. Music news outlets...

The stark cover of Interpol’s upcoming self-titled record illustrates the letters in the band’s name pulling away from each other and crumbling apart, an image it’s easy to read as symbolic of the state of the band, given how longtime bassist Carlos Dengler left the group shortly after they finished cutting the album. In lieu of announcing a permanent replacement for Dengler...

Tonight @ The Rave, 8 p.m.

Ancestral lineage aside, everybody loves a little Irish punk party rock around March. That’s been part of the Dropkick Murphys’ appeal since their inception in 1996, but this seven-piece band has found considerably broader success than the average Celtic punk band. Derived from leftover Woody Guthrie lyrics, the group’s roaring 2005 single, “I’m Shipping Up to Boston,” became the unofficial theme to Martin Scorsese’s hit The Departed, also...

Tonight @ The Rave, 8 p.m.

St. Louis’ Ludo have worked their way up from Warped Tour B-listers to modern-rock radio B-listers, thanks to an expensive major-label debut crafted with Maroon 5 producer Matt Wallace. Wallace polished the band’s emo-punk predictably, packing the group’s My Chemical Romance-styled drama into tight, Killers-inspired pop songs, but he couldn’t gloss over the band’s fundamental lack of wit or songwriting chops. “Does the fun ever...

Tonight @ the Rave - 8 p.m.

With growing disinterest in gothic, pulse-pounding metal in the United States, veteran English rockers Cradle of Filth now spend most of their time touring Europe. The band’s latest album, Godspeed on the Devil’s Thunder, won’t do much to win the band a new stateside following, but it will please the established faithful. This time out the band supplements their skull-crushing riffs and from-the-grave vocals with a themed song cycle about....

The ever-wonderful Ryan Miller introduced me to some of his fellow FM 102.1 DJs last night at the Shepherd�s Best of Milwaukee party, and our conversation turned to songs long since retired from the station�s regular play list. We covered favorites brought back occasionally (Tori Amos� �Cornflake Girl�) and novelties unlikely to return anytime soon (The Ass Ponies� �Little Bastard�), which led me ...

Tonight @ the Rave - 7 p.m.

Sacramento hard-rockers Telsa have been touring off and on since 1984, and after all these years, their hair is for the most part as long and unruly as it was in their heyday. Though it’s unlikely the band will repeat the success of their 1989 power-ballad “Love Song,” the group is set to release its seventh studio album this week, Forever More, and they’re giving it the full tour promotional push, stopping tonight at the Rave...
