    Brand New Men - Hillbilly Hunks Cope With Changing Gender Roles

    Judging by the album charts, the most popular men in country music this past winter were EMF, INXS, and Don Henley. Oh, and can't forget the Outhere Boys, them of "Boom Boom Boom" fame (y'know"Girl, your booty is so round/Let me lick you up and down...

    Ah Know How To Undress Me - Sensitive Maleness in CMT's Countdown

    Montgomery Gentry! Eddie "Peanut M &" M and Troy the G (uitarist, mainly) often seem like they're dreaming on bar stools, yet somehow took CMA Award for Duo of the Year 2000 away from eight-time winners Brooks & Dunn (not a lot of competition, I'd sa...

    D-Dang-A-Dang Me

    Like on a lot of recent country albums, the sound choices are rich enough on Nobody's Got It All, the new John Anderson LP: soul horns on the first track, which he sings with the blues feel of a gospel- or soul-based blues singer like Bobby Blue Blan...

    Hybrid Vigor A sense of puzzlement hung over the SummerStage crowd during Bongo Maffin's set on Saturday afternoon. The day began with DJ sets by Ron Trent and Martin Morales, whose Afro-Brazilian grooves fell roughly between Bongo Maffin's club-f...

    What's My Age Again?

    Love my people. Love them madly. Well, sort of. From a distance. Teenagers, I meanaggressively whiny ones, especially when they temper their ill will with a devout belief in the redemptive powers of pretty guitars. I feel a pang of recognition when ...

    Do The Strokes - England Discovers New York Again

    There is a tragic halfway point between All Saints and Radiohead, and most of Britain's current guitar bands keep at least one toe on such squishy, lukewarm ground: Travis, Gomez, Stereophonics, Coldplay. And as we well know, being average is a far g...

    Minnie the Moocher's Revenge - Sing Along With the JVC All-Stars

    Say this of JVC: The plot changes annually. It may look the same on paper, may list toward the same artists, suffer the same limitations, capitulate to the same distractions, but George Wein's flagship festival manages to take different turns each su...

    Jumping the Groove - David First Slips Inaudibly From Drones to Rock and Back

    The day minimalism was born, inertia became a problem again. It had last been one in the 18th century. Bach and Handel, once they started a musical movement, were content to chug along without significant change in tempo or texture until the final ch...

    Who Isnt Jill Scott?

    I used to call artists like Nikka Costa, Res, Sunshine Anderson, India.Arie, and Pru "anti-divas." It was the kind of compact, catchy term that could spice up a daily-story lead, headline, or nut graf, without much fuss or need for explanation. But t...

    Franco de Mi Amor

    The best shorthand for the many-named hero christened Franois Luambo Makiadi and known as Franco is to coin a clich and call him the James Brown of Africa. As individual artists the two had different strengths: Brown made his name as a vocalist bef...

    You'd have to judge the quality of Gorillaz on a sliding scale of how seriously you take them. If you see this group project as the light-as-fluff sideline of a few otherwise busy pop-culture gurus, then you can accept it as an amusing hour of distra...

    Dueling With Symphonies - Failing 2000, Branca Goes for the 100-Guitar Mark

    Here are some things Basement Jaxx's new album, Rooty, makes me think of: the long-range viability of classic song form; hip-hop's aesthetic hegemony and how it contributed to the divorce of beat from song and the idea that dancing is for girls; loca...

    Mood Swings - Tom Harrell Samples the Bitter With the Better
