Throw in reissues and anthologies of the Creation, Artful Dodger, and Southside Johnny and new releases by Colin Hay, R. Stevie Moore & Jason Falkner, Wire, and Rev.

Dan Baird & Homemade Sin's Rollercoaster

Album of the Month: Dan Baird & Homemade Sin's Rollercoaster, the latest blast of poop-puntin' Southern rock from former Georgia Satellites' frontman Dan Baird and his motley collection of rock 'n' roll lifers (including talented Jason & the Scorchers' guitarist Warner Hodges). A Homemade Sin album is always a treat, the grooves laden with red-hot git licks, foot-shufflin' rhythms, and strong songwriting from the underrated Baird. Rollercoaster marks the second album from the Baird camp this year; the singer/songwriter's SoLow solo disc was released in February and is equally worth of your time and money.
