    Sugar Daddy

    I heard somebody on the street call Cee-Lo "the fat motherfucker from OutKast" a few weeks ago. Cee-Lo is actually the fat motherfucker from Goodie Mob but that misrecognition sums up the Goodie situation. In the public's mind and in Soundscan's data...

    Motherland Connection

    The main thing wrong with Kwaito: South African Hip Hop, an Earthworks compilation from 2000, was its subtitle. If anything, the style on display was more like South African hip-housedeep four-four beats, vocals heavier on chant than flow, hooks ram...

    Music for Unwinding - Music Boxes and Photocells in a Land Beyond Time

    Given Conlon Nancarrow's exploration of the player piano and John Cage's appropriation of the record player, the arrival of the music box to serious music was inevitablebut why did it take so long? Outlier, the recent CD of new music-box works by Ne...

    Sneer and Loathing

    Elvis Costello is such an asshole. Every record he makes is a genre exercise, and an implication that he's more culturally enlightened than his mortal admirers. When I Was Cruel is an exercise in the "old Elvis Costello and the Attractions" genre, wh...

    Slow Ride - Houston Screws Off the Cough-Syrup Cap

    Funny that the only strain of hip-hop that truly qualifies as Da Next Big Thing would make Russell Simmons wanna join Creed as the management flunky who shaves Scott Whatshisname's concave chest. It's called screwed music, or just plain "screw," afte...

    Apostle of LS&N - Bill Charlap's Trio Play the Melody and Listen to Each Other

    Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)

    Rock and roll history is dominated by eccentrics, assholes, weirdos, pimps, players, con men, junkies, beautiful losers, geniuses, poseurs. Sometimes, though, the pantheon makes room for folks like Jeff Tweedy, who reminds me of dozens of lost souls ...

    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 ...

    Fusing traditional Gnawa ritual and Yoruba linguistics with chaotic ivory and free verse on his eighth album in the past half-decade, Chilean-born pianist and vocalist Omar Sosa constructs bridges between Morocco, Cuba, and Americamercurial arpeggio...

    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...

    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...
