Despite the use of note-enhancing software, the music had to feel human. When Spoon entered the studio in late 2006 to work on Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, the indie-rock band's acclaimed sixth studio album released in July, the quartet wanted to ride on pure inspiration. Although the result is largely precise and streamlined, the flubs and distorted noises here and there give the music a certain warmth. "There's a fine line with that. There's a balance we're just good at," says Spoon lead vocalist and chief songwriter Britt Daniel.

When O.A.R. sold out New York's Madison Square Garden in 2006, it was the culmination of years of touring for the Rockville quintet. The grass-roots approach to building a fan base worked for a rock band whose albums have never reached higher than No. 12 on the Billboard 200. But for singer Marc Roberge, the band's living-on-the-road reputation had an unsettling undercurrent to it. "I remember one poster we had that says, 'O.A.R.: Always on...

Three years ago, pop punks All Time Low thought they were about to make it big. Riding the coattails of their successful studio album "Nothing Personal," which debuted in July 2009, they had just signed to major label Interscope Records. Finally, with a well-known label, they could break into mainstream radio and grow their fan base. Now, they know better. The only album they released through Interscope, "Dirty Work," was received by much of their longstanding fan base as too glossy and tongue-in-cheek, and sales were far lower than expected.

When the baby that Melissa Etheridge and partner Julie Cypher have been expecting comes in January, Etheridge plans to take some time off. Actually, a lot of time off."I've put out five albums in seven years and I'm ready to take a break," Etheridge says. "I don't think you'll see another studio album from me until the end of '98."But fans needn't worry. Etheridge isn't planning to fall off the face of the Earth."You'll probably hear from me before then, but not in a studio album," she said.

In the late '90s, rock 'n' roller Will Hoge started stirring up the music scene in his hometown of Nashville, Tenn. Hoge signed to Atlantic in 2001, but they soon parted ways. Since then, he's been touring the country, releasing albums independently and gathering a loyal fan base. His sound and stage presence are reminiscent of early Bruce Springsteen. Hoge, who even looks a little like the Boss, plays the 8x10 on Saturday. His latest studio album, The Man Who Killed Love, was released in July.

Guitarist David Immergluck has admittedly had a bizarre relationship with the Counting Crows. Though he wasn't an official member until 1999, Immergluck has been a huge influence on the West Coast rock band. Before he joined the band, he was a friend and session guitarist who played on their albums. He even introduced singer-songwriter Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson, who formed the group. Though Duritz asked Immergluck on several occasions to join the group before 1999, Immergluck politely declined.

Please excuse her. Dar Williams has a cold, and she's blowing her nose -- loudly. It's 10 in the morning. But despite her stuffy nasal passages and the dreary weather outside her Manhattan apartment window, she's chipper. "Sorry about that," she says over the phone. "I'm almost over this." Like her music, the woman is real. She's thoughtful, too. And her latest album, The Beauty of the Rain, is a shimmering reflection of what the folk-pop artist has been experiencing in the last few years, her evolution.

In Concert u CDs Joan Armatrading, who emerged on the scene in the early '70s, has never really received the attention she deserves. But it's not much of a surprise, you know. Mainstream audiences are seldom receptive of plain-faced (but still attractive) black women like Armatrading -- serious sisters who strum guitars and write candid tunes of personal evolution and political liberation. The singer-songwriter's mahogany voice communicates resiliency even as she falls apart in the lyrics.
