    Who?

    Let me provide a mnemonic device possibly useful as a touchstone in the coming analysis of Owls bandleader Tim Kinsella. Ready? OK: Kinsella holds his "id" at an "ironic distance." That is to say, Owls is a concept album about how interpersonal relat...

    Mary J. Blige never would've earned or kept her crown as the queen of hip-hop soul without a trunk full o' drama. Mary J. Blige is drama, and that's why, unlike so many '90s-reared divas, she is so much more than her songs. Other ghetto-fabulous girl...
