  • What's My Age Again?


    What's My Age Again?

    Love my people. Love them madly. Well, sort of. From a distance. Teenagers, I meanaggressively whiny ones, especially when they temper their ill will with a devout belief in the redemptive powers of pretty guitars. I feel a pang of recognition when ...

    Do The Strokes - England Discovers New York Again

    There is a tragic halfway point between All Saints and Radiohead, and most of Britain's current guitar bands keep at least one toe on such squishy, lukewarm ground: Travis, Gomez, Stereophonics, Coldplay. And as we well know, being average is a far g...

    Minnie the Moocher's Revenge - Sing Along With the JVC All-Stars

    Say this of JVC: The plot changes annually. It may look the same on paper, may list toward the same artists, suffer the same limitations, capitulate to the same distractions, but George Wein's flagship festival manages to take different turns each su...

    Paint Your Wagon When Les Ttes Brules took on SummerStage for Africa Fte on Sunday, it felt less like a muggy afternoon in the city than a beach party. Members of the five-man, one-woman band from Cameroon outfitted themselves in cutoffs with b...

    Jumping the Groove - David First Slips Inaudibly From Drones to Rock and Back

    The day minimalism was born, inertia became a problem again. It had last been one in the 18th century. Bach and Handel, once they started a musical movement, were content to chug along without significant change in tempo or texture until the final ch...

    Its Their Factory

    "Follow us, comrade aviators," the rhythm-and-punk Gang of Four called out to fellow travelers everywhere on 1980's Entertainment!: "Swim into the abyss." Well, OK, not exactlythat wasn't Go4 speaking; it was the painter-theorist Kasimir Malevich in...

    Tours of a Clown

    "There's no need for me to go up there," says Manu Chao with two shots of grappa in him and a beat-up acoustic guitar slung over his back. The Venezuelan acid-funk band Los Amigos Invisibles are onstage at the Village Underground. "People are already...

    Who Isnt Jill Scott?

    I used to call artists like Nikka Costa, Res, Sunshine Anderson, India.Arie, and Pru "anti-divas." It was the kind of compact, catchy term that could spice up a daily-story lead, headline, or nut graf, without much fuss or need for explanation. But t...

    Franco de Mi Amor

    The best shorthand for the many-named hero christened Franois Luambo Makiadi and known as Franco is to coin a clich and call him the James Brown of Africa. As individual artists the two had different strengths: Brown made his name as a vocalist bef...

    Monkey Wrench

    You'd have to judge the quality of Gorillaz on a sliding scale of how seriously you take them. If you see this group project as the light-as-fluff sideline of a few otherwise busy pop-culture gurus, then you can accept it as an amusing hour of distra...

    Rave Architecture No doubt about it, the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage is an amazing space. As a music venue, though, this gloomy maze of looming, steep-sided chambers leaves a lot to be desired: Performers tend to drown in a quagmire of reflected sou...

    Dueling With Symphonies - Failing 2000, Branca Goes for the 100-Guitar Mark

    In the late 1970s, Glenn Branca and Jeffrey Lohn invited Rhys Chatham to play bass with their band, Theoretical Girls, for a couple of gigs. Chatham was then music director of the Kitchen, and the aim was apparently to get the band a Kitchen gig, whi...

    Mash Culture

    Here are some things Basement Jaxx's new album, Rooty, makes me think of: the long-range viability of classic song form; hip-hop's aesthetic hegemony and how it contributed to the divorce of beat from song and the idea that dancing is for girls; loca...

    Sounds Like Music

    The prop plane circled the ballpark, trailing the type of banner you might also see at the beach. The message, though, was not what you usually see at Dodger Stadium. "Radiohead Amnesiac" it read, orbiting lazily in the afternoon heat. The guy beside...

    Undead Zeppelin

    "Oh, the humanity!" wailed the radio announcer from Lakehurst, New Jersey, as the Hindenburg burned and crashed not 200 yards from him in 1937. Yet compared to the loss of life in modern air disasters, this accident was statistically a trivial reason...

    Mood Swings - Tom Harrell Samples the Bitter With the Better

    Tom Harrell's unevenness as an improviser and composer has generated one of jazz's most consistent dramas over the past 25 years. When the planets come into alignment in a Harrell solo; when all is focused and driven and he knows where he is headed b...

    Pay No Mind to What They Say Though they quit after three short years, the five pinups who were the Go-Go's never disappeared completely. There were tours promoting best-ofs and new-wave nostalgia, plus a few solo efforts. Still, releasing their f...

    Mad for Sadness

    "Try living life instead of hiding in the bedroom," a frustrated girlfriend snaps on the early Red House Painters song "Medicine Bottle," but the two are one and the same for House husband Mark Kozelek, and never more so than they are on Old Ramon. S...

    Parlor of Vices

    Back in the days of Stephen Foster, the piano was the centerpiece of the parlor. That was the room that women ran, the room where music, like femininity, was supposed to civilize baser impulses. From the piano flowed the family values of 19th-century...
