    Pet Sounds Boy

    Linus of Hollywood's Let Yourself Be Happy is not a "new" album, inasmuch as it came out over a year ago. However, Let Yourself Be Happy wasn't even new the day it was released, inasmuch as it's designed to sound like something that's inherently 30 y...

    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....

    Buzz Bin The Hives swarmed into New York last Wednesday accompanied by the buzz of a music industry and public magically aligned. The five post-pubescent Swedes shivered and shook onstage at Bowery Ballroom like they were either bees or afflicted ...

    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...

    Made for Walkin' - New Boots and Panties

    Earlier in the millennium, I reported on "byterock": the desktop dovetailing of a couple songs in a fun game of (not so) strange bedfellows. Let's make Eminem talk to Britney. Let's make her and Justin do it, digitally. Many combinations were inspire...

    Like a Virgin

    Who will reconcile Ashanti's divided soul? Not her. Certainly not her. In song and in conversation, she barely admits to the contradictions she straddles: r&b sweetness and hip-hop sex talk; Ivy League aspirations and street hustle; girls and boys. A...

    White American - Eminem Makes His Rock Move

    The Eminem song of the year is now and will forever remain the Pet Shop Boys' "The Night I Fell in Love," where a certainly fictional, probably underage male spends a night with a performer who tells Stan and Dre jokes and shrugs off those homophobia...

    Orajel of the Species

    Mook rock, punk jocks, even if it's rap schlock, it's still rock and roll to me. A nice sentiment, and one I firmly believe, but that doesn't make rock, circa: now, particularly good or anything. We've reached a lull, the kind which prompts critical ...

    The Breeders are the only rock band I've liked ever since the dark ages. The dark ages were my early teenage years, a hazy period from around 1994 to 1996 when I enjoyed the brief fame of Ace of Base and the reign of sassy black teenagers like Brandy...

    Stuck Mojo's Violate This delivers a postmortem on a rap-metal act angry as hell it missed out on the coin and plaudits of the FDA (Freddy Durst Army). If I read the excuses of their manager's liner notes rightly, their problem is that they were unco...
