These are the music reviews I have done, mainly for my wife's APA 'zine, The Creeping Flesh. Some of these also appeared in the now defunct Phoenix area alternative 'zine Kluttered Visions. Left to my own devices I buy more techno and female singers but the occasional guitar band catches my ear and I'll buy them to see if the radio hit is any indication of a good album or just a polished gem in a pile of mediocre crap.
I used to listen to KRUX in Las Cruces, New Mexico and hear all sorts of good music you can't hear anywhere else. It was the first place I heard Cibo Matto and Chemical Brothers. I really liked that they would give away stuff because so few people listened to the station that I could almost always win. That's where the Whale CD came from (reviewed below). But I've since moved to Oklahoma City where there just isn't a good alternative station. When I can get it I listen to KSPI out of Stillwater (where OSU is). They're a pretty good station. The only place in Oklahoma that'll play something like KMFDM or Lucinda Williams.
When I'm at work I get Internet radio and mainly listen to KSPI (finally) but the connection isn't that good or The womb (a techno pirate radio station from Miami, FL). When these two are crapping out I'll listen to an alternative station out of Austin (KROX) or one out of Vermont (WEQX) -- isn't the Internet grand. I can only connect into real audio streams that use http so only about a third of the ones I try work -- boo hoo. I encourage all of you to go to my bookmarks page and check out the music links. I should write an autobiography of my musical tastes but that'll be for another day.
