    Flying Turkey Trot

    With their rather parochial view of the world soundscape, New York's music hipsters probably don't know it, but the old Istanbul psychedelic scene was the longest lasting on earth. And the planet's best current psych bandReplikaswas spawned in that...

    Splendor in the Artgrass Ralph Stanley croaking "Man of Constant Sorrow" over Bruce Barth's Tyneresque piano might strike you as either inspired, uncanny, or sinful. Whichever, it represents the conceptual apex of Shifting Sands of Time, the ambit...

    Some may cock an eyebrow at my Arabic-pop timing, but Tea in Marrakech and Hakim were long in the pipeline, scheduled for an October release that came too late. Party Music, on the other hand, was pushed back in August from its scheduled 9/11 release...

    Sappy but thrilling, Shelby Lynne's "Killin' Kind" was nearly lush enough to wipe the bad memory of Bridget Jones's Diary right off your brainpan when the film's closing credits finally rolled. The song is an all-hook-and-no-filler labor of lust, rec...

    A Matter of Taste By the time the Kinsey Sicks wrap their 95-minute Dragapella! (Upstairs at 54), they've illustrated what constitutes good and bad taste in comedy: If a joke is genuinely funny, it's in good taste; if not, not. Looking like garish...

    Leather Cohen

    Today's beat klatches have it backward. Instead of using their dancefloor cred to get so popular they can sit back recounting their postpunk, '80s roots with the and-your-point-is obviousness of a Chris Farley interview skit ("Remember we all used to...

    The Stone Coyotes just might be the weirdest rock band you'll hear all year. The rural-Massachusetts-based trio comprises Barbara Keith (a 52-year-old singer-guitarist whose '70s solo work has been covered by Barbra Streisand, Tanya Tucker, and Olivi...

    Musico-Collateral Damage - Music, Interrupted by War, Changes

    The Vietnam War left subtle traces on American music, but did not interrupt it or change its direction. Desert Storm had even less impact. But the current conflict seems different. For one thing, the WTC disaster did cause a brief interruption in the...
