Lilys, The 3-Way

Kurt Heasley has a ‘60s obsession to be sure, specifically the Small Faces and the Zombies, but he’s one of the few able to


Lil’ Kim: The Notorious Kim

Ms. Kimberly “Lil’ Kim” Jones, here’s your most telling lyric: “You can never be me. You can only resemble.” Apparently, though, resemblance is a


The Love Dogs, Heavy Petting

Not just another band of hepcat posers, Boston’s Love Dogs is the real swinging deal. Their brand of frenetic, head shaking, toe tapping, jump


Annbjørg Lien: Baba Yaga

Listening to Annbjørg Lien’s latest modern folk effort, Baba Yaga, is much like giving over your autonomy and partaking of a rich musical


Low: Christmas

I admit it. I am a holiday music fanatic. Each year, I roam the stores in search of the perfect Christmas record. But this year


Love As Laughter: Destination 2000

First the Backstreet Boys released Millenium. Then Will Smith had a hit with “Will2K.” Even Queensryche attempted to revive their bloated carcass of a


    Laika & the Cosmonauts: Laika Sex Machine

Linus of Hollywood: Your Favorite Record

This recording burst out of nowhere to tremendous underground acclaim on the Internet among various persons who understand the beauty of a hook and high


David Lindley and Wally Ingram: Twango Bango Deluxe

Once upon a time I visited the local artsy coffee shop to sit and smoke a few cloves and down some mochas. It’s the


Oliver Lake Steel Quartet: Kinda Up

While jazz is generally associated with instruments like drums, bass, piano, woodwinds and brass, jazz is of course very inclusive. That is the way jazz


Mark Lanegan: I’ll Take Care of You

Who’d've guessed that that guy from the Screaming Trees would leave behind the whole flash-in-the-pan scene his band got lumped into and become, uh,


Ronnie Lane, April Fool

Lane’s jubilant sound mixed pop, country, English roots music, and folk.

Tyour Gnaoua is not a person—it is a performance collective based in Morocco. Like all gnaoua (or gnawa) groups, it consists of musicians, dancers,


    Lush: Ciao! Best of Lush

By definition, a best of for a band like Lush is rather bizarre. It’s not that they haven’t been instrumental in creating some


    The Lisa Marr Experiment: 4AM

It’s best to listen to the Lisa Marr Experiment while wearing important shoes; it’s mood music for the inner-schizophrenic in us all, and


    Lady D: Naked Kaleidoscope

The best way to describe Naked Kaleidoscope is “nice”. It’s not the most enthralling and exciting release out there. It probably won’t make


Chris Lee: self-titled
