    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...

    Drink Six Shots

    On their first record, the Beatnuts said all they wanted to do was "fuck, drink beer, and smoke some shit." This was a decade ago, though all available evidence suggests they haven't strayed considerably from that m.o. in the years since: 2001's exce...
