If the skinny, white nerds in Maroon 5 can get away with ripping off Prince and Michael Jackson, who’s to say that scruffy Brit Jamie Lidell — a former IDM kingpin — can’t successfully ape the sounds of Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, and Marvin Read more

Twin Tigers, Curious Faces Violent Future (Self-Released, 2008)

Listen: “Watershed”
[audio:http://www.detour-mag.com/audio/Watershed.mp3]

A six-song EP from Athens, Ga. indie rockers Twin Tigers, who are led by Matthew Ryan of Psychic Hearts. The name of his other band aside, Sonic Youth is a prime influence on this set, from the dry click of drumsticks on the side of a snare drum to electric guitars that whine harmonically over thicker rushes of noise. And while the Read more

Lakeview Terrace (Neil LaBute, 2008)

Is Neil LaBute up to his old tricks? The director of In the Company of Men and Your Friends and Neighbors (oh, and Nurse Betty) this time takes on Lakeview Terrace, about a couple who come under the too-watchful eye of the neighborhood guardian angel. This Read more

Yelle, Pop-Up (EMI France, 2007)

Listen: “Je Veux Te Voir”
[audio:http://www.detour-mag.com/audio/JeVeuxTeVoir.mp3]

In France, part of Yelle‘s claim to fame comes from a “feud” with a rap group no one in America has ever heard of. That doesn’t trivialize the group; there’s no misguided isolationist pride here. It just illustrates that, to non-Francophones, Yelle’s catchy and Read more

Carnal Knowledge (Mike Nichols, 1971)

What the hell happened to Mike Nichols? The director once delivered consistent films that held up a mirror to American bourgeoisie society with such poignant fare as The Graduate and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, but that was before his bite became Read more

Matmos, “Exciter Lamp” (Matador, 2008)

Matmos rocks the Korgs and stacks of analog antiquity on Supreme Balloon, the duo’s new record for which “Exciter Lamp” is the, um, “single.” The song’s video is appropriately nervy and strange, like footage found in some cult of grad students. We’re a Read more

Atmosphere, When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (Rhymesayers, 2008)

Listen: “Your Glasshouse”
[audio:http://www.detour-mag.com/audio/YourGlasshouse.mp3]

Is Atmosphere‘s sixth record going to get down with the Warped Tour demographic? Let’s hope not. Slug and Ant are conducting social commentary at street level, from their tales of cowardly pimps to single moms with a crutch for cocaine and self-involved narratives about the struggle to find true love as an indie rap star. Slug is still as Read more
