    Replacement Party Tonight!

    First time I popped A Tribute to Nashville (Robert Altman's movie, not the city) into the player, I did what I'm guessing most people will dowent straight to track 12, Kelly Hogan's cover of "Dues," the original of which by Ronee Blakley accounts fo...

    You Buggin' What You Buggin' Who One of Harry Partch's greatest innovations was to compose songs around the tones, timbres, and rhythms of human speech. The Locust, a hardcore quartet from San Diego, follow much the same idea, but they compose aro...

    Demolition Men

    On the Internet, no one knows you're a lanky, bespectacled laptop nerd with too much software and not enough time (or inclination) to leave the house. But they assume it anyway. Why else would you be sifting through hip-hop tumbleweed, grabbing snipp...

    Skipping on Air

    When I lived in London in the post-swinging '60s, the Indian-run cornershop that would inspire an indie band's ironic name was far from a fixture. My own neighborhood didn't have one, for example. In those years, the stereotypical immigrant from the ...

    Baby I'm a Star (Again) Prince operates on so many levels it's hard to keep up with him. "Last time I checked this is not 1984," he rapped shortly after taking the stage at Avery Fisher Hall on April 9. "If you came to get your Purple Rain on you m...

    I had to listen to Cassandra Wilson's Belly of the Sun three times before I was convinced it was a jazz album. Recorded in her native Mississippi, at the storied rural crossroads between blues legend and plantation nightmare known as Clarksdale, Bell...

    Less Is More

    The Tweet single "Oops (Oh My)" has just one drum, a simple Timbaland rhythm that hits the counter beats instead of the main ones. There's a hurdy-gurdy riff above it, which drops out for just some dub echo in the breakproving that the way to put va...

    Jam On It - Hippies, Jazzbos, and Beat Junkies Build One Nation Under a Mutant Groove

    Let us now praise great Americans: Louis Armstrong, Jerry Garcia, and Grandmaster Flash made their history with equal parts pioneer cojones and improvisatory derring-do. They had a lot in common. Back in the day, each would move their crowd, playing ...

    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...

    Plaid Tidings Bagpipes are so punk rock. They're ugly, they're clamorous, they're easy to learn, and their defiant DIY allure is sealed by a rebel pedigree: The Great Highland Bagpipe is the only musical instrument ever banned as a weapon of war....

    Pop Goes the Composer - Eve Beglarian and Friends Explore an Audiovisual Vernacular

    It's a long way from the halls of the Princeton and Columbia music departments to the pop music stage, and Eve Beglarian has traveled most of that route. Her music has always been brassy, intelligent, and outside the box, but in her early days she wa...

    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...
