Solid.

By this point, JAMC was past their height of popularity. but this is a criminally ignored album.

Severely underrated

leamancrews

I'm glad to see this has a 4-star average here at eMusic, because in the JAMC community, Munki is severely underrated. It's just as genius as their other five albums proper. And it's a real treat because while the other albums basically stuck to one style per album, all of their many sides are on display here. It may be a little schizophrenic, but there's nary a duff track to be found here. 5/5 in my book.

Who Are…Light Heat

By Matthew Fritch, Contributor

Quentin Stoltzfus shot through the ranks of a late '90s Philadelphia psych-rock scene — a tightly-knit faction of retro-futurists that included the Lilys, Bardo Pond, Lenola, Photon Band, Azusa Plane and Asteroid #4 — on the back of a near-perfect dream-pop debut album. Watch It Happen, released under the name Mazarin, revealed Stoltzfus's talent for princely, soft-focus pop that was well aligned with peers such as Grandaddy and the Elephant 6 collective. Two more Mazarin… more »

Who Are…Moon Duo

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

Moon Duo's second LP, Circles, will probably be the best record made in the most obscure location this year. Although parts of it were recorded in the band's previous home of San Francisco, and some mixing and other worked happened in Berlin, the majority of its creative efforts came from a Rocky Mountain eternity of a winter early this year. The band's new home of Blue River, Colorado, sported a population of 685 during the… more »

36 Songs To Soothe the Pain

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Whether you're happily married or told Cupid to shove it a long time ago, we can all agree on one thing: to quote the one-and-only Nazareth, "Love hurts/ Love scars/ Love wounds/ And mars." Or something. That's why we went ahead and compiled a list of 36 Songs To Soothe the Pain, from the bloodletting confessionals of Neko Case, Bright Eyes and Sunny Day Real Estate to the melancholic melodies of Sigur Rós, the Shangri-Las… more »

Who Are…Wax Idols

By Barry Walters, Contributor

While Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino radiates all the sunny musical signposts of her native Los Angeles — specifically, surf guitar riffs and beach-buoyant harmonies — Wax Idols' Oakland transplant Hether Fortune sings, writes and generates a sound that references several decades of dark British alt-rock, albeit with a contemporary DIY spirit. Like other buzzy Bay Area bands, Fortune and her supporting players prove that punk and pop can still come together without going corporate. eMusic's Barry… more »

Six Degrees of Wavves’ Life Sux EP

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

As befits an album bookended by tracks titled “I Love Rock’n'Roll” and “I Hate Rock’n'Roll,” the Jesus and Mary Chain’s Sub Pop label debut, Munki, is schizophrenic and impassioned, a record that both summarizes the band’s career to date and cleans the slate for their future. Virtually each of the 17 tracks here echoes a prior moment in the Chain’s existence, moving at breakneck pace from the volcanic noise of their earliest material to the bleak grace of Darklands, through to the sleek, supercharged pop of Automatic — even Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval makes a cameo, as she did on Stoned & Dethroned. In a sense, it’s an ideal primer to the Reid brothers’ mercurial world, flirting with both brilliance and mediocrity; even after well over a decade, the Jesus and Mary Chain continue to thrill, irritate, and confound — they’re a true love/hate obsession. – Jason Ankeny
