    Turning Japanese

    Jim Jarmusch's movie Ghost Dog ought to have felt like a preposterous mixture: goofy mafiosi and fish-out-of-water gags, existential loneliness and fatalistic attachment. In fact, though, it hits a mood and is mostly able to hold it. A lot of this ha...

    Stumbling Toward Failure

    While the stoner-metal movement has certainly driven the meat wagon over the cliff in its swarming Cheech & Chong-ism and Sabbath clichs ankylosed as orthodoxy, as a genre it's still easy to enjoy solely on the basis of clumsy sincerity and a cheerf...

    Bob Dorough Endures - Pluck Your Magic Twanger, Froggy

    Spin Age Blasters

    We've heard all about DJs being the new pop stars, but aside from Fatboy Slim and the occasional housed-up ballad, DJ-created grooves have for years been kept far away from American pop radio, relegated to the late-night mix-show ghetto. So it's a bi...

    The Right Two Notes

    For those who've followed it for years, Bernadette Speach's music sounds like it's in transition. She used to write thickly textured, jazz-tinged, postminimal works in which pitch and texture seemed equally important. Now it's almost as though she's ...

    Hit Me Big Beat One More Time

    Sticky Little Fingers

    It's tough bearing the burden of other people's dreams: Sometimes the three women of Sleater-Kinney must feel that all the expectations and desires the group has to shoulder have taken on a life of their own, independent of the music itself. When the...
