You can't really hate Jordan Cook's Reignwolf project - it's just too damn fun. When Cook stopped by KEXP last month to play a one-man show, he brought a kick drum and a fog machine with him. With a caveman stomp and his shredding, bluesy guitar, there was nothing lacking from Cook's performance. He completes his sound with no need for help and occasionally reminds us of the energy and vibe of early, early White Stripes material. In short, if anyone deserves to stop using his birth name and go by Reignwolf, it's this guy. In this set, Reignwolf plays three originals and a seriously fantastic rendition of Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain." He doesn't use any backing tracks or any doubling. Rather, Reignwolf puts everything forward in his live show and doesn't hold anything back. But with a massive garage rock presence and an unshakeable confidence, Cook throws down and doesn't look back. If you visit Reignwolf's website, you won't find any music that hasn't been recorded live. For some bands, that would be a completely ludicrous concept. But Reignwolf earns every inch of it, and his presence is one in a million.

From backwoods barbecues and community gatherings; Allen Stone emerges to share personal melodies, telling his tales of life after just 24 years. Getting his start singing at his father's church in small-town America; it wasn't until later when introduced to the greats of soul music (Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin) and then to the confessional lyrical fashion of the 60's -70's singer/ songwriters, did music begin to ignite intense passion, eventually carrying this boy to a musical home. On his self-titled sophomore album - an independent self-release which hit digital shelves October 4, Allen has pushed his sound and lyricism to a greater level of noted individuality. It touches upon a range of styles and themes. Integrating classic soul, catchy pop hooks, r&b beats and folk roots with lyrical matters of testimonial broken relationships, poisonous politics and the age-old topic of simple, pure celebration. Stone's music is notable for his ?nely crafted evocative songs and a fresh, smooth, soul-?lled voice-one that certainly belies his age.Allen Stone has shot up the R&B/Soul charts on iTunes, peaking at the number 2 spot, and hit #29 and #62 on the Billboard Heatseekers and R&B/Hip Hop Album charts, respectively, and has garnered national praise - USA Today called him a "pitch-perfect powerhouse" - all without any support of a label, publisher, or publicist.

Neck of the Woods sees Silversun Pickups lighting out for the territories, stretching the boundaries of their exhilarating psychedelia with confidence, invention, and undeniable ambition. Having long made their bones as masters of widescreen power, the Los Angeles-based band's third Dangerbird Records album takes their filmic vision to another level entirely - this is full-on IMAX rock 'n' roll, in stereoscopic 3D and Sensurround. From the low-frequency thrust and motorik pulsebeat that drives "Mean Spirits" to the mesmerizing first single, "Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)," the album fairly detonates with high definition creativity. Roomier rhythms and judiciously applied electronic shadings form a blissed out base camp for the band's electrifying aural adventures, the elegiac landscapes of Neck of the Woods revealing an unbridled expansion of the already impressive SSPU sound. "There's a playfulness," says singer/guitarist/songwriter Brian Aubert, "a certain kind of freethinking experimentation that we were fooling around with. We wanted to just let it all fly." Silversun Pickups - that is, Aubert, bassist Nikki Monninger, keyboardist Joe Lester, and drummer Christopher Guanlao - emerged with 2005's Pikul EP and soon caught the attention of the wider world with the following year's Carnavas. That collection (featuring the breakthrough single, "Lazy Eye") only barely prepared the way for the band's blockbuster second album, 2009's Swoon. Tracks such as "Panic Switch" and "The Royal We" established Silversun Pickups as a potent force in 21st Century Rock, further confirmed by an 18-month tour that included innumerable headline dates, festival sets, and a 2009 Grammy Award nod for "Best New Artist."
