It doesn't get much more Midwest garage rock than the Soledad Brothers' Live, which features a June 2000 performance of the Detroit/Toledo group at the Motor City's late, lamented Gold Dollar. The mix of integrity and intensity displayed on their albums Soledad Brothers and Steal Your Soul and Dare Your Spirit to Move gets ratcheted up a few notches, as does the length of the songs themselves -- Live covers seven songs in just over half an hour. This elongated approach doesn't always connect, but when it does, it really does: "Goin' Back to Memphis" has a nicely percolating sense of tension and release, as does the even more explosive "Up Jumped the Devil." However, early tracks such as "Stand Up" and "Break Em on Down" fall relatively flat, though that's probably due to the band getting ready to hit their stride more than anything else. Much has been made of the Soledad Brothers' similarity to/fetish for the Stones, and Live brings out that side of the band even more than their studio albums. "Johnny's Death Letter" is positively "Midnight Rambler"-esque, and "Teenage Heart Attack" boasts swaggering drum and guitar lines that bear an uncanny resemblance to "Brown Sugar" without actually ripping that song off. By the time the last song, "Gospel According to John," winds down, it feels like leaving a party too early -- the band has clearly hit its groove and could easily play for another hour. Though it's not the best introduction to the Soledad Brothers' music, Live definitely makes a compelling argument to see the band play whenever possible.

Interpol, Fade to Black

At the dawn of the new millennium, when garage was king, the New York quartet that then became a trio exploded onto the scene by reviving the dark romanticism of 80’s post-punk.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

The Black Keys in 10 Songs

From 2001, The Black Keys have been reminding the world about the real roots of the Blues, cutting away all the frills and unnecessary solos. Their music has always been untamed, abrupt and minimalist. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney developed this unique style over the course of two decades, without once selling their souls to the devil at a Mississippi crossroads. Here are ten songs to prove it.
