    Fuzzing the Familiar - Phil Kline Buries Old Tunes Beneath a Wash of Color

    It's remarkable how enjoyable it is to see some familiar object through an obscuring mist. Like, take a simple drawing you've seen a million times and wet it to see the ink run: Suddenly it looks mystical, poignant, a romantic ruin. And given how sim...

    The Dune Chronicles Like many of the country's frayed roots troubadours, Howe Gelb is a walking reconciliation project between the loner tendencies at the heart of his music and the community spirit it seemingly inspires. He's like the weird uncle ...

    Microtones and Bebop - Joe Maneri Turns 75; Nick Brignola 19362002

    One of the infrequent pleasures of ethnic weddings and bar or bat mitzvahs in the era before DJs began contributing to musical unemployment (may God forgive me) was the chance encounter with jazz players hiding out in those bands. I can recall coming...

    Teach Yourself Fugging - The Lower East Sides First Underground Band Refuses to Burn Out

    The thing you have to accept about the Fugs is that they'll never sound as good as you hope. You assume the Lower East Side's first true underground band will be tough, gritty, minimalist, urban protopunks. Uh-uh. That was the Lower East Side's secon...

    On Beyond Bob

    A friend of mine told me a few months ago that his favorite new albums were by Montgomery Gentry, the White Stripes, and Dylan. "Hey, it's a blues-rock revival!" he said. I think that's cool, to lump them together like that, and what I like most abou...

    "This album," the booklet inside Gary Allan's current Alright Guy reads, "is dedicated to Willie, Waylon, Johnny, George, Buck & Merle," which is a way of saying not "Garth, Tim, Kix, Ronnie, Kenny & Toby." Allan, originally from and still very much ...

    Earache, My (Third) Eye

    Too Filmy to Describe - Even Without Props, Ingram Marshall Creates Ecstasy

    Ingram Marshall is the great poet of the indistinct. His music is filmy, nebulous. It melts. It enters unobtrusively and dies by slowly slipping away. In between the drama can be gripping, but it sneaks up on you. A friend once accused me of neglecti...
