Neo-Psychedelia

One of the Arch Drude's most enjoyable offerings in many years, the melodious, whimsical, and appropriately shambling Drunken Songs celebrates Cope's latter-day embrace of booze.

Aussie Rock

With the documentary Descent into the Maelstrom filling theaters in its premiere engagements, it's a good time to revisit the genius of one of Australia's very best rock bands, Radio Birdman. For newbies, The Essential Radio Birdman: 1974-1978 is the best place to get wise to the group's ferocious blend of Detroit high-energy muscle, hot-rodded surf guitars, pre-punk swagger, and their own distinct brand of urban cool. If this isn't enough for you, give the career-inclusive Radio Birdman box set a try.
