The world that Shooter Jennings has created in his ambitious new album, "Black Ribbons," is more ominous than brave and more nerve-rackingly familiar than new in presenting a scenario of the dark days ahead for humankind in the tradition of Aldous Huxley's classic 1932 novel. Yet the singer and songwriter, the maverick offspring of country music outlaws Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, is putting his message across in myriad ways that Huxley wouldn't even have imagined in his treatise about a technological society in which there's little room for human connection.

Fans of the old Art Bell Coast to Coast radio show - a call-in program about alien encounters that was a staple of Southern late nights in the '90s - might find a lot to like about Shooter Jennings' new album, "The Other Life. " There's a bit of a rural-futurist bent (see "Flying Saucer Song" and "15 Million Light-Years Away"), but more importantly, the album shows how quiet, open spaces can lead to great flights of imagination. "The Other Life" is a showpiece for Jennings' familial knack for outlaw-country hell-raising.

Shooter Jennings' parents always disagreed on how he got his nickname. His mother, country singer Jessi Colter, cited her and husband Waylon Jennings' love of western culture and cowboy art for inspiring the gun-derived moniker. But his father, the late outlaw country singer, said he came up with the name when, moments after the newborn emerged from his mother's womb, the boy sprayed a nurse before anyone could put on his first diaper.

For some, the Fourth of July is a good opportunity to reread the Declaration of Independence or the writings of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams or George Washington and reacquaint themselves with the spirit behind the nation's founding. The Hootenanny Festival each Independence Day weekend serves a similar function for anyone looking to reconnect with the spirit underlying the birth of that quintessentially American musical form, rock 'n' roll. This year's lineup held out the prospect of a summit meeting between two of rock's titanic figures — Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis — along with the usual amalgam of roots rock, punk and Americana acts spread Saturday over the daylong festival's three stages in the park-like surroundings of Irvine's Oak Canyon Ranch.

Joaquin Phoenix, whose portrayal of Johnny Cash in "Walk the Line" has made him an early Oscar front-runner, returned this week to the scene of one of the musician's most famous concerts: Folsom State Prison. Cash's Jan. 13, 1968, performance in a prison yard cemented his image as working-class hero and became a popular album.

When Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello joined Billy Bragg's "Tell Us the Truth" outing in 2003, the guitarist learned a few things from the British singer-songwriter and activist about leading a multi-artist charity tour: "You have to be bossy," laughs Morello. "Billy would say 'Your set is this length; these are the songs we're going to play.' " This time, Morello is calling the shots.

Bo Bice "See The Light (Sugar Money/StratArt) *** Shooter Jennings "The Wolf" (Universal South) *** Beyond a laissez-faire attitude toward personal grooming, Bo Bice and Shooter Jennings don't appear to share much in common. Bice is best known as the scruffy longhaired guy who lost to Carrie Underwood on the fourth season of "American Idol." And Jennings is the son of outlaw-country singers Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter.
