Rivals will be out next Tuesday, May 19.
could enter rehab, but the dearth of intoxicants has done little to temper his angrily defiant songwriting. Coming fresh off a reunion tour with his old band Sleep, Pike and co. reconvene for the upcoming album Luminiferous, HOF's first in three years, of which "The Black Plot" is the first taste. Nothing we haven't really heard before out of the trio, but then the band have never been overtly experimental, so given expectations this scratches a proper itch.

Undeterred, Sticky Fingaz and Fredro Starr are back with a new EP, Against All Authorities, which dropped yesterday. "Fuck the Law" is another zeitgeist-repping anti-establishment track, which should now be pretty familiar, but Sticky and Fredro have always gotten by on bristling energy and sheer force of personality, both of which are in abundance here.

This being Cinco de Mayo I simultaneously regret both my sleep-deprived inability to muster the wherewithal to think of anything properly Mexican to contribute while also lamenting my compelling need to post something this "almost but not quite". Whatever, this is about as authentically Hispanic as any Tucson band springing forth whole cloth from the forehead of Giant Sand like a cross between Zeus and Gizmo can expect to be. Ladies and gentlemen, the new Calexico.

For some, this remix by PC Music's Danny L. Harle will conjure up unpleasant memories of early 90's rave, particularly the first two Prodigy albums. For the rest of us that recall the rave scene as generating some historically significant music and not just being an incessant series of "James Brown Is Dead" clones, this "Come To Your Senses" rework is a welcome panacea to the dominance of the moody, tone poem art scene that dominates modern electronic music. I enjoy a little cerebral techno as much as the next guy, but it sometimes seems like the dancefloor has been altogether ceded to the hip hop/top 40 community.
