    Mr. Ellington, Meet Mr. Matisse - Alfred Appel Connects the Moderns

    The logroll is a two-step worth avoiding. It's OK to lead, but to follow is to invite public ridicule. As it is thus highly moral not to return the favor of a kind review, I have happily waved morality's flag to dodge the works of betters, rivals, an...

    Panda Not Dubya - Indie Kids With New Chords Need Love Too

    When I'm not dreaming of a Canadian-led invasion of the U.S. and a subsequent regime change that results in free nationwide health care and a Tim Hortons on every block, I ponder the enthusiasm I have for Killer Mike videos and whether or not it's ap...

    Prog Wakes Up - Paradiddles by the Dashboard Light

    Only the ass of Event's Scratching at the Surface jewel box overtly indicates that prog-rock's afoot: that Inside/Out stamp (yes, the very label that's home to Jersey's Symphony X, whose most recent platter was a reading of Homer's Odyssey starring G...

    Werewolves of Norway - Los Lobos Tienen Mucho Frio

    Ulver are not your grandfather's lycanthropic rock band. They are something much more complex and . . . well, let them explain it, as they do so eloquently in the notes to their Metamorphosis EP from 1999: "Ulver is obviously not a black metal band a...

    Hellspawn Freeze Over - Swedes Stay Put for Satan

    Obstinacy is one of death metal's crowning virtues. The music refuses to cave in to fashion or irony, or feel compelled to mean anythingeven post-9-11. It understands that the riff is its own reward. Grave's Back From the Grave is their first studio...

    So Many Lives - The Bourgeoisie and the Rebel

    There are few cultural artifacts more bereft than a major-label album that doesn't get a push. Indie albums are never quite as sad, partially because the common (though not universal) practice of splitting profits 50-50 with the label means acts usua...

    Garage Garage - Me and Apathy Down by the Schoolyard

    Dizzee Rascal's debut single is the point where Euro-terror techno gets crunked up, all boings and claps and sickly keyboards. His text is the battle of the sexes devolved to the schoolyard. Or Stone Age. Dizzee versus "some whore/ bangin at your doo...
