    Proggy Went A-Jammin'

    Progressive rock and metal's double-clutching, gnat-note precision smashes headlong into the jamband clan's urge to luxuriate in the never-ending now on Chicago sextet Umphrey's McGee's delightfully titled Local Band Does O.K. It's the jam scene's sl...

    Sharp Blessed Men

    Hooks-laden, woman-(ec)centric (not too intimidatingly enlightened), unimpeachably Texan, yet too dang messin'-with-the-boogie for some (especially re CD mixes of hallowed vinyl), the ZZ(aftig) Top legacy is a good bet for Pop-Goes-the-Country's dude...

    Quiet Desert Storm

    Toby Keith has a strong rich voice, but he lets it sit easilyso easily that it's easy to overlook what a good singer he is. In this he reminds me of Cary Grant, who excelled at light comedy and therefore never pulled off the sort of bravura performa...

    Voices of the 'B' Hives - Scandinavian Garages and Carburetor Dung

    Garage-rock revivals have sprung up like instant-oil-change franchises across the globe the past few years, but nobody's been quite as prominent in this expansion as Sweden's Hives, especially since Veni Vidi Vicious came out in America in early 2002...

    One-Minute Missy "Aaliyah was an angel!" Missy Elliot shouted out at last Tuesday's Irving Plaza benefit tribute-revue. But once she recognized that the crowd of media hangers-on had pretty much moved on to Ashanti, she changed things up a bit, a...

    Same World, Different Trips - The Diverse Musical Agendas of Didkovsky, Woolf, and Grant Coexist

    Patrick Grant has moved his concert curating from Egizio's Project in Soho to Haim Chanin Fine Arts Gallery in lower midtown. His October 3 concert brought together three composers superficially similar in technology but very disparate in personality...

    Purely Piano - Iverson, Iyer, and Moran Go It Alone at the Jazz Standard

    Mouse Trap Replica

    Anthony Braxton's never been cool, but has always seemed mighty weird. There's the pipe-smoking, sweater-swaddled egghead persona, a nutty professor dispensing super-cerebral, impenetrably systematic post-Ornette/Stockhausen compositions with all but...

    Right to Work - Summer's Out of Reach

    When they spin the Beatles during my occasional confinement in Classic Rockville (actual songs during drivetime, dude), I think two things at the exact same time: "Jesus, I never need to hear this song again," and "Holy fuck, this is so much better t...

    The Art of Stopping - These Boots Were Made for Nothing

    Seven-Year Ache

    New Orleans is a fine place to become someone else, or to luxuriate in obscurity of your own making. Mike West and Myshkin have done both in their time. As husband and wife, they were acoustic iconoclasts, nearly lost in the brassy blare of New Orlea...

    Rubber City Meets the Crossroad

    For four years, I lived in Akron, Ohio. These four years were fascinating, because Akron somehow manages to be completely bizarre and profoundly archetypal at the same time; I am 95 percent certain it was the inspiration for the community of Springfi...

    Crossroad to Ruin

    Like the White Stripes and the Black Keys, Mr. Airplane Man are a drums-and-guitar duo that play gritty four-chord trash rock, but that's where the similarity ends. If Jack White is the Enron CEO of neo-garage, Margaret Garrett is its cleanup lady. W...
