    Opening Remarks at the CMJ Panel Discussion

    On September 12, everybody said the world would never be the same. Since then, many have tried to take that back. One movie mogul went so far as to explain to the Times that anything anyone said that week couldn't be taken literally, we were all too ...

    Going Down Easy

    This is the stuff of which legends are really made: Young New York City Band writes a few great songs; U.K. critics write a few fawning cover stories; young New York City Band is written off by the Underground. Yawn. Nay, urpwho doesn't find instant...

    Here Comes a Regular

    The people want to hear "Come Pick Me Up," but Ryan Adams is no one-minute man. He's a-make you love him, make you want him; he wants you to come prepared. At his marathon Irving Plaza show a few weeks back, demands for the ballad start up minutes af...

    Sweetness and Fight

    The Hissyfits have a feminine sweetness with voice inflections that aren't so sweet, multipart female vocals that play off each other but come together for beautiful harmonies, rough fuzz from the guitar. The music is full of reversals and contrasts....

    La Lutte Continue - Looking for a Mindset at CMJs Special Apocalypse Edition

    It's not even 10 on a Wednesday at the Village Underground and I'm already into my third band of the first night of the CMJ Music Marathon (Special Apocalypse Edition). Radical chic or not, the black power and La Lutte Continue posters on the walls o...

    Cool Comforts Where did all the music geeks go? As I continue visiting half-filled venues playing host to what few imported musicians have the courage to come to our cultural behemoth of a town, I keep expecting to see the artsy crowds of the me...

    Twerk to Do

    A lot of Southern hip-hop is all about paradigms and approaches; the laws of the rest of the world really do apply once you cross the Mason-Dixon line. Even the left-of-center entries, like Timbaland-produced newcomer Bubba Sparxxx (whose current vid...

    The Last Mardi Gras - New Orleans Bounce Label Take Fo' Tells It Like It Is in Yo Booty Hole

    If you want people to cry bitter tears over your antagonistic soundscapes, you've got to be Radiohead; if you want men to drool over your highlighted weave and colossal snake, you've got to be Britney Spears. And if you want them to hump the air whil...

    Never Surrender

    Lil' Troy might have been better off not surrendering himself to the fuzz in November 1999, since he wound up serving nine months in federal detention in beachfront Beaumont, Texas, for a 1998 crime. ("Using a communications device to commit a felony...

    Go See The Doctor

    Cornel West's Sketches of My Culture is probably the first hip-hop record by a Harvard professor. I demand that academia reciprocate and immediately put Ol' Dirty Bastard on the tenure track. Until then, Dr. Dre doesn't need to worry about Dr. West....

    Heir to a Secret History - Jason Moran Helps Blue Note Be Blue Note

    Blue Note Records is turning out to be, of all things, the Blue Note Records of our timein a way I never anticipated. Hard bop is not on the agenda. And the label has not yet found a guaranteed jukebox favorite like Jimmy Smith, Horace Silver, and, ...

    Unpatriotic?! Moi?

    No way, Ari. But two theses. First, most current American pop and semipop was conceived for a normalcy currently beyond the reach of our imaginations. Second, if Americans don't have it in them to get more cross-cultural, they're fuckedby which I m...

    Clarify Your Dissent

    Timing Is Everything

    A few weeks ago, System of a Down were just another band of Armenian Americans from L.A., vaguely mining the scorched-earth theme of that city's dystopia, with a three-year-old near platinum debut to their credit. Following the music industry convent...

    Because I Got High

    It's always impossible to pin a date on these things, but somewhere in the time line of alternative rock, the scruffy set's preoccupation with guitar noise as an end itself (following the likes of Sonic Youth in the U.S. and Jesus and Mary Chain in t...

    The Uptowners Among Us - That Old-Time Complexity Is Good Enough

    I haven't written much about composers of a generation younger than mine, and I feel bad about it. I've sometimes gone to their concerts without writing about them, because I've had trouble explaining them to myself in a Downtown context. I'm petrifi...

    "Who will save rock 'n' roll?" ask the Dictators, who've been trying hard for 25 years. Well, ladies and gentlemen, here's the answer: ZEN GUERRILLA. But don't take my word for it, cuz words are dry little lifeless approximations, refractions of the ...

    Strictly Solalian - Martial Solal Plays Everything All at Once

    Probably the worst label one can stick on a jazz musician is Intellectual, a nebulous term that almost always serves as a warning: You may be expected to do some workif you consider close listening work. The second most insidious label is Virtuoso, ...
