    Skipping on Air

    When I lived in London in the post-swinging '60s, the Indian-run cornershop that would inspire an indie band's ironic name was far from a fixture. My own neighborhood didn't have one, for example. In those years, the stereotypical immigrant from the ...

    Baby I'm a Star (Again) Prince operates on so many levels it's hard to keep up with him. "Last time I checked this is not 1984," he rapped shortly after taking the stage at Avery Fisher Hall on April 9. "If you came to get your Purple Rain on you m...

    Everyone Hates Miss Popular

    In "Payphone," a mid-tempo matrix of fast harmonies and heartaches on The Big Room, the second album by the Norwegian duo M2M, a young girl walks around in ominous weather, although she never mentions rain or snow or anything like that outright. "Jus...

    Girls With The Most Pie

    Inside her new CD cover, Lisa Loeb is stroking her tongue with a cream-smeared finger, and looking sideways. Raunchy? Potentially: The picture alongside is of an upright straw soaking in a pool of milk. Then she's contemplating her creamed finger, he...

    Fire Down Below

    Voltaire once observed, "Anything that is too stupid to be spoken is sung." And so what? Pop music is supposed to promote heavy breathing, not heavy thinking. But if a musician aims be the world's moral compassas does reggae's Capletonhe leaves him...

    Pop Goes the Composer - Eve Beglarian and Friends Explore an Audiovisual Vernacular

    It's a long way from the halls of the Princeton and Columbia music departments to the pop music stage, and Eve Beglarian has traveled most of that route. Her music has always been brassy, intelligent, and outside the box, but in her early days she wa...

    I had to listen to Cassandra Wilson's Belly of the Sun three times before I was convinced it was a jazz album. Recorded in her native Mississippi, at the storied rural crossroads between blues legend and plantation nightmare known as Clarksdale, Bell...

    Less Is More

    The Tweet single "Oops (Oh My)" has just one drum, a simple Timbaland rhythm that hits the counter beats instead of the main ones. There's a hurdy-gurdy riff above it, which drops out for just some dub echo in the breakproving that the way to put va...
