    Reality Soundbites

    I can faithfully, honestly say that hiphop is dead. Q-Tip Hiphop being counterculture, underground culture, that's sorta dead. It's all mainstream. It's just a bunch of pop music. Meshell Ndgeocello Anything that's not growing is dead. So we...

    Lifestyles of the Rhythm - Dance Music Accesses an Unseparatist Pop Sensibility

    Time was, people loved or ignored or scoffed at dance records the same way they bought or didn't buy other kinds of pop records. The music would come from a singer like Donna Summer, say, during disco's '70s commercial peak. Or, during the '80s, when...

    Here Comes a Regular

    Since rock-critic shmendriks tend to fixate on persona, and since I'm going to do exactly that for most of my space here, let me first take this opportunity to holler at Anthony Davisa/k/a Minneapolis hip-hop producer Ant. On his duo Atmosphere's Lu...

    Endangered Feces - Blectum From Blechdom: They Came, They Saw, They Rectum

    Basquing in Glory

    Fermin Muguruza enunciates the tongue-twisting chorus of his perky ska/Latin/pop/rock hybrid "Hitza Har Dezagun" so clearly that you'd think his Brigadistak Sound System was intended as an instructional record in his native Basque language. If you're...

    Jolly Good Bozos

    I never cared for Quiet Riot's Slade mimicry. The band always sounded too stiff and technologically American for a snob like me. Not enough of an evening of shepherd's pie with Noddy and the rugby hooligans in them. Though that explains, perhaps, why...

    Boogying to the Max - Naphtali, Gremo, and Tammen Send Noises Scurrying Through Space

    Max/MSP is a world of its own. It's a software program, or set of programs, that hundreds of composers are using, to the extent that you can say many of them are Max composers, the way Chopin was a piano composer or Nancarrow a player-piano composer....

    Fearless Game

    I disagree with those who feel that hip-hop is in stasis. (I should be in such stasis.) Maybe there's no particular direction for the music, but that's just because it has so much matter-of-fact variation and innovation that it's always moving in a l...
