    Mastery on Music Row

    Two albums that have shown up via Nashvillea kickass debut that muses and sparkles, and a wildly sophisticated follow-up that doesn't choke on its own maturityindicate that young Southern singer-songwriters needn't be captive to anyone's convention...

    Seven-Year Ache

    New Orleans is a fine place to become someone else, or to luxuriate in obscurity of your own making. Mike West and Myshkin have done both in their time. As husband and wife, they were acoustic iconoclasts, nearly lost in the brassy blare of New Orlea...

    Rubber City Meets the Crossroad

    For four years, I lived in Akron, Ohio. These four years were fascinating, because Akron somehow manages to be completely bizarre and profoundly archetypal at the same time; I am 95 percent certain it was the inspiration for the community of Springfi...

    Crossroad to Ruin

    Like the White Stripes and the Black Keys, Mr. Airplane Man are a drums-and-guitar duo that play gritty four-chord trash rock, but that's where the similarity ends. If Jack White is the Enron CEO of neo-garage, Margaret Garrett is its cleanup lady. W...

    Hail Fellow Well Set

    Preemptive readers of article tags know that I have a temporary gig, which limits my writing if not my listening. I'm unreasonably pleased to note that said gig lasts past Thanksgiving. What might we call an Easter Turkey Shoot? A Ham Roast? A Bunny ...

    Romeo's Tune

    Are Interpol the Steve Forbert of postpunk revival acts? (See www.nerdmagazine.org/forbert.html.) Are they, as The New York Times would have it, the beginning of the end of the New York rock underground? Is Matador the Steve Forbert of indie rock lab...

    Rocket Reducer No. 6200

    Ever since it became clear that the MC5's attempt to levitate Sun Ra's starship was basically a complete failure, like-minded subsequent units have attempted more or less successfully to improve on the blueprint. Comets on Fire are the latest in a lo...

    Unidentified Fretted Object - David Beardsley Paints Moods Without Moving

    The September 21 concert of David Beardsley was the most peculiar I've heard in a few years. In the first place it was held at Chama, a tiny storefront East Village bookstore devoted to UFOs and extraterrestrial phenomena. Secondly, 25 percent of the...

    Simple Things First - New Discs From Out West by Peter Garland and Terry Riley

    I Have Had to Learn the Simplest Things Last is the title of a recent Peter Garland work. It's a great title, but it strikes me that Garland learned the simplest things earlier than most people do. At least Garland's music has always been simple, in ...
