    The Stockholm Syndrome

    "I have discovered a mind-blowing world of music that nobody seems to know about," a pop manager of my acquaintance announced over his cell phone several years ago, running through LAX, "and it is named Sweden!" The long Backstreet/Britney/'N Sync mo...

    Not That Innocent

    Sometimes you just wanna have fun, and sometimes you fake it so real it is beyond fake. And sometimes they're the same thing. Stella Soleil and the Rondelles both sound like they're having lots of fun on their new records. Dirty Little Secret and Shi...

    How Life Isnt Anymore

    It is difficult, in light of September 11, to consider Macy Gray with any degree of seriousness. She explicitly revels in Dionysian pleasures, and her mostly harmless sophomore release, The Id, appeared exactly a week after the terrorist attack on th...

    Intelligence Data

    I'm not sorry for nothing I've done. I'm glad I fought, I only wish we'd won. Pretty wry for a spry guy, this Bob Dylan character. The codger's got plenty kick left in him yet. Feel like a fightin rooster, feel better than I ever felt, but the Penn...

    Looking for Better Than That - Figuring Out Whos in Tune as the Smoke Clears

    Early Tuesday, September 11, conniving for a lead to begin this column, I fancied myself Diogenes in search of an honest singer, squinting through the light of my lamp and defeated by darkness time and again. A meager joke, but at 8:30 a.m., having l...

    Ghost Dance - Its a Bomber, Its a Bomber, Its a Bomber

    Wednesday there was e-mail from Jessica Hopper of Hyper PR in Chicago, apologizing for having to tell us where her bands were headed now that CMJ had been postponed. "Nothing like profound tragedy to make our myopic punk rock world and scene squabble...

    Fade to Black - The End of Frivolity as We Know It

    I'm willing to bet, perhaps crassly, that a lot of current careers and genres were shredded as a result of last Tuesday. Some probably don't know it yet, but they're dead. It will take about half a year for the majors to sort out, but they're going t...

    Talking World War III Blues - A Hard Rain Starts to Fall

    One of the only records I've been able to stomach since 9-11 hit was released that very day. Bob Dylan's Love and DeathI mean Love and Theftbegins with the image of twins, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, throwing knives into a tree, and continues, "Tw...

    Love the Sun, Lasso the Moon

    On certain records, time stands so still you can hear a needle drop. It's permanently 1 a.m., the night is made of burnt-out dreams, and amnesia is just a sigh away. "Candy Says" fixes the slo-emo oblivion of the Velvet Underground with the halting g...

    Learn to Forget

    The Clean's response to the more-common-than-you'd-think musical conundrum "What becomes a Kiwi-rock legend most?" was to split up. First in 1982, barely a year after the landmark drone and clatter of the Boodle Boodle Boodle EP (citing fame fatigue...

    Contort Yourself

    "Take me to the dancefloor, show me it's OK to dance," sings Red Monkey's bassist, Rachel Holborow, on "The Jazz Step Forwards (Shake It Down)." Normally I would consider this to be an encouraging sign for a band whose herky-jerky rhythms and radical...

    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...

    The soul singer, a 28-year-old New Yorker named Maxwell, is performing "This Woman's Work," a song by Kate Bush, the intensely chirpy English art-thrush from the '80s; it appears on Now, his third album. He begins in wordless falsetto, aaahhs and ooh...
