    Self-Hating Hicks - A South Fulla Pig-Chasing Whiteboy Rappers Fail to Elevate Their Race

    Our childrenour young white childrenare in crisis, trapped in the grip of a culture that glorifies drug use and debauchery, slovenly dress, and lack of respect for authority. A culture whose worship of antisocial behavior and debasement is rivaled ...

    The Man in the Distance

    An odd thing about Michael Jackson is that he has a totally spectacular voice but he doesn't feel the need to amaze us with it. At all. His favorite technique for conveying passion is to choke off his words. On dance songs he makes his voice as hard ...

    Hear Me Talkin to Ya - Ashley and Marchetti Reunite in a Mind-Blowing Nonconcert

    Musical evenings rarely come as weird and wacky these days as did the October 25 Interpretations concert at Merkin Hall. We had opera without singers, pianists who played no pianos. "What the heck's going on?" and "Is this music?" came floating back ...

    Slough of Despond

    Flying Turkey Trot

    With their rather parochial view of the world soundscape, New York's music hipsters probably don't know it, but the old Istanbul psychedelic scene was the longest lasting on earth. And the planet's best current psych bandReplikaswas spawned in that...

    Sappy but thrilling, Shelby Lynne's "Killin' Kind" was nearly lush enough to wipe the bad memory of Bridget Jones's Diary right off your brainpan when the film's closing credits finally rolled. The song is an all-hook-and-no-filler labor of lust, rec...
