    Talking World War III Blues - A Hard Rain Starts to Fall

    One of the only records I've been able to stomach since 9-11 hit was released that very day. Bob Dylan's Love and DeathI mean Love and Theftbegins with the image of twins, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, throwing knives into a tree, and continues, "Tw...

    Looking for Better Than That - Figuring Out Whos in Tune as the Smoke Clears

    Early Tuesday, September 11, conniving for a lead to begin this column, I fancied myself Diogenes in search of an honest singer, squinting through the light of my lamp and defeated by darkness time and again. A meager joke, but at 8:30 a.m., having l...

    Love the Sun, Lasso the Moon

    On certain records, time stands so still you can hear a needle drop. It's permanently 1 a.m., the night is made of burnt-out dreams, and amnesia is just a sigh away. "Candy Says" fixes the slo-emo oblivion of the Velvet Underground with the halting g...

    Contort Yourself

    "Take me to the dancefloor, show me it's OK to dance," sings Red Monkey's bassist, Rachel Holborow, on "The Jazz Step Forwards (Shake It Down)." Normally I would consider this to be an encouraging sign for a band whose herky-jerky rhythms and radical...

    Learn to Forget

    The Clean's response to the more-common-than-you'd-think musical conundrum "What becomes a Kiwi-rock legend most?" was to split up. First in 1982, barely a year after the landmark drone and clatter of the Boodle Boodle Boodle EP (citing fame fatigue...

  • Who?



    Let me provide a mnemonic device possibly useful as a touchstone in the coming analysis of Owls bandleader Tim Kinsella. Ready? OK: Kinsella holds his "id" at an "ironic distance." That is to say, Owls is a concept album about how interpersonal relat...

    For a music that started out sounding like George Clinton and Kraftwerk trapped in an elevator, as Derrick May famously described Juan Atkins's early efforts, Detroit techno has aged about as gracefully as Three's Company reruns. Wearing its "classic...

    Two Soul Singers

    The soul singer, a 28-year-old New Yorker named Maxwell, is performing "This Woman's Work," a song by Kate Bush, the intensely chirpy English art-thrush from the '80s; it appears on Now, his third album. He begins in wordless falsetto, aaahhs and ooh...

    Marked Woman

    Mary J. Blige never would've earned or kept her crown as the queen of hip-hop soul without a trunk full o' drama. Mary J. Blige is drama, and that's why, unlike so many '90s-reared divas, she is so much more than her songs. Other ghetto-fabulous girl...
