    Dope Whites on Non-Punk

    While most turntablists are peach-fuzz-mustached little funk-Trekkies hanging out in their parents' basements trying to perfect scratches, Arizona's Z-Trip and Springfield, Missouri's DJ P are instigators. Or at least they have a sense of humor: Z-Tr...

    Love Jones Fitzgerald wrote that there are no second acts in American lives. Regrettably, he did not live to witness neosoul singer and spoken-word artist Jill Scott follow hip-hop crew the Spooks on a bill that also featured cerebral MC Common. S...

    Checkin Out the Weather Chart

    One of the most important folksingers (he's not really a folksinger) of the late-20th and earlyish-21st (and mayhap 22nd) centuroonie has never heard of For Carnation or Basement Jaxx. (Basement who? Yeah, same here. But let's try and keep up.) His ...

    I'm obsessed with shitting, so the wicked wake-up track on San Francisco garage outfit the Roofies' studio debut, Blame It on the Roofies, gets me off (the toilet). Title: "Assorcism." But what is it, exactly? I wanna put this song on repeat for hour...

    Snap! Crackle! Pop!

    Where would director Chuck Jones's scwewy wabbit and puddy-tat be without the merry melodies of Carl Stalling and, especially, the splats, screeches, and collisions of FX wizard and unsung hero Treg Brown? (Ta-da!) Brown punctuated and complemented t...

    Diphthong Songs

    Stephin Merritt's grand project involves nothing less than the mass production of pop. Those 69 love songs reveal new facets every time you hold them up to the light, but for their workhorse architect, the notion of sheer quantity provides its own ch...

    Outsider Providence "This song is from a woman's point of view," MC Paul Barman nasally intoned Friday at the Westbeth (referencing so-serious hip-hoppers the Lox, he proclaimed himself the "bagel"). That lady had little more to say than "I can't ...

    A-OK

    I've played the Radiohead album about a dozen times, pushed my way in to see them live, and yes, there is a certain pleasure to be had from Kid A. What seems at first like rote, enfeebled antirockism reveals a jittery, cohesive undercurrent. Unlike m...

    OK, here's the hamster scoop: Last fall a U.K. indie-artsy outfit named the Cuban Boys took note of the wacky hamster sample (manipulated from the old Roger Miller country-novelty track "Whistle Stop") on the popular (and now defunct) hamsterdance.co...

    Bettie Serveert's new Private Suit insinuated its way into the crevices of my background; it's moldy and crusty, and grows seemingly unnoticed. I didn't like it at first. It smelled moist, stale in its complacency. You see, Bettie Serveert used to pa...

    Ill Take Paradise - Philip Glasss New Symphony Eases Us Into the Millennium

    The pressure to sanctify a monumental occasion rarely brings out the best in a composer, at least in recent centuries. Bach and Handel dealt with it well, but we moderns seem to approach the attempt with guilty consciences. It may be due to the lack ...

    Sun Ras Saturnal Sorcery - Long Live Serendipity
