    Play Mixy for Me

    Making mix tapes used to be an all-consuming passion. Spending hours, days, and nights wading through records, compiling, adding, subtracting, erasing, I'd make thematic cassettesall women, all hard rock, all r&b. Or else, I'd just make 'em eclectic...

    Barely Legal

    The best new song I've heard in the past year is called "A Stroke of Genius," but don't bother looking in a record store. Someone called the Freelance Hellraiser chopped up the instrumental sections of the Strokes' "Hard to Explain," rearranged them,...

    Throw Your Hands in the Air

    Pazz & Jop handicappers often look to this prepoll CG for clues to previously ungraded finishers, and a few do sneak in below. Mostly, however, I've been coming to terms with the hip hop crop of late 2001, which caught Christmas sales and escaped the...

    Collapsing New Waves

    1978, London: Tough to get any of those punks to shut up and listen, busy as they are screaming and being gobbed at. A nonplussed Daniel Miller, billing himself as the Normal, pens two mono-intoned, electrodrone un-ballads in response: "Warm Leathere...

    Easy-Chair Rap

    It was inevitable. At a certain age, every pop genre begins to decelerate. In turn, its audience harkens for past glories and achievements, celebrating artists who uphold tradition rather than subvert or destroy it. How else to explain the emergence ...

    Spelunking and Crooning in 2001 - Reissues by the Boxful, Singers by the Cut

    Reissues and reclamation projects are the oxygen in which jazz, as a living art, breathes. They are the classics, benchmarks, standards, soul, and history of the music. They are proof that an improvised art can defy time; an excuse or demand for re-e...
