    Dancehall Daze - Toasters Catch Fire, Burn Down Wall

    Reggae dancehall discovered before hip-hop that a turntable and mike-rocker can be as potent as the conventional spectacle of vocalist, background singers, and band framedand therefore certified as entertainmentby a proscenium arch. But it took hip...

    Afropop Worldwide

    Once or twice a year I spend a few weeks comparing and contrasting the latest cache of Afropop, but rarely do so many good ones fall into place simultaneously. I don't promise there aren't more in store, either. Still, this should hold you. B...

    Grammytanamera - Pour Azcar! on Me

    Latinos rarely need an excuse to don their best threads and party. And as last week's first annual Latin Grammy Awards in L.A. proved once again, we do it with sabor. Having cashed in my frequent-flyer miles to mingle with the Latinrati on the left...

    Make Do With Grin

    When I was nine years old the two comedy singers who vied for my smile were Allan Sherman and Tom Lehrer. Lehrer's got a box set on Rhino (The Remains of Tom Lehrer), but I'll talk a bit about Sherman first, since the two make an interesting contrast...

    Lying Saucer

    Every day sees one more example of the creeping nincompoopism constant in American life. Today's selection is UFO's Covenant. The "bonus" disc included with it is a live recording, the track listing of which is so utterly fubar it bears not even the ...

    Under Heavy Manners

    Cheese is often the result of deep talent and a forward vision. David Axelrod was to studio funk what Joe Meek was to Merseybeat: a mad-scientist insider who twisted further and further toward the margins until all that was left was twist. For this h...

    Essence of Tropiclia

    I was not my first choice for this piece. I was hoping a Portuguese speaker or, even better, someone who actually witnessed Tropiclia's birth would step up to wave the flag for the Gilberto Gil reissues. But these CDs have been sitting in the racks ...

    Rattling the Stones - Glenn Branca and Friends Shake the Brooklyn Bridge

    If the Brooklyn Bridge seemed unusually wobbly as you drove over it July 20, especially at one end, I think I can explain. In the previous few days, the Lincoln Center Festival had completed a quirkily heterogeneous survey of digital and analog elect...

    Spirituality Having Flown

    Mixed-and-Matched Emotions

    A friend of mine says this about Ida: "They're terrible. I love them as people, but their lyrics and style just make me cringe." The irony is that he finds Elizabeth Mitchell's voice transporting, grainy, and warm enough to resurrect an old Dolly Par...

    Grace Under Pressure
