Bands like Air helped carve a niche for "retro yet futuristic" synth/keyboard outfits. And while SSM use keys as a major ingredient for their sound, they replace the ethereal Moog with organ and '60s garage rock production, as evidenced by their 2006 self-titled debut. Comprised of singer/keyboardist John Szymanski, drummer Dave Shettler, and singer/guitarist Mary Morris, all of SSM's members are veterans of the local Detroit rock scene (having played with such local outfits as the Hentchmen, the Sights, and the Cyril Lords). Like most garage rock revivalists of the early 21st century, SSM aren't afraid to test how sturdily built their instruments are -- many of their songs contain "bash away" moments. Blaring retro organ that brings to mind ? & the Mysterians on such cuts as "Exit Strategy" and "Candy Loving," the band takes a new wave-ish detour on "Put Me In," and if Suicide's two-man lineup was expanded to include a guitarist, it would probably sound close to "Ain't Love." With many of their garage rock compadres being more concerned with looking the part -- SSM deliver musically on their self-titled outing.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…
