"Torture" by everyone's favorite father and son duo, The Spanic Boys. "Torture" is another ripping roots-rock excursion... Though the music on "Torture" is typically percolating Spanics rock 'n' roll, the songs themselves are darkly affecting..." (--Chris Morris, Billboard) Order now

"Laser Beam Next Door", the release from The Silos. Revolver applauds: "The Silos as a power trio? Compared with the rootsy reveries of albums past, Laser Beam Next Door delivers a wake-up slap of fuzztone guitar over a whipcrack rhythm section. Remaining constant within this ever-evolving band, is the bittersweet impressionism of Walter Salas-Humara, whose laconic vocals and bareboned melodies compliment musical epigrams of hardboiled spirituality. where 1998's Heater was more of a revelation, the stripped down riffing of this follow-up should kick start this band on the road." -- Don McLeeseOrder now
