    Haikus and Atmospheres

    For the record, I am not a true believer in "underground" hip hop. If anything (see Black Eyed Peas), I'm a bit of a skeptic. But nowhere near as much a skeptic as hip hoppers of every sect and affiliation. Boy does good stuff surface once you start ...

    It Came From Jersey When a show is billed as "all ages," and you've just squeezed through the Roseland lobby past a gaggle of chaperoned 10-year-olds, that sort of tempers the appeal of seeing a woman getting fucked onstage with a power drill. At ...

    Carson Daly could stroll unnoticed down any sidewalk in MTV-free Canada, so it figures a band that seems created in his image assembled itself in Vancouver, lacking all afflictions of prefab sprout. SoulDecision have already outpaced other would-be n...

    Deeper Into the Vaults - Weird Nightmares and Other Forgotten Dreams

    Reissues usually get their due at year's end, when they come gift-wrapped in cloth or steel boxes with fancy prices and hyped-up art direction, but record companies stay alive and keep their distributors happy by recycling old records all year long. ...

    Love and Death

    Love's third album mystified both the band's ardent fans and the scene's founding rockwriters almost from the day it appeared in November 1967. On first listen, with its many glosses of strings and horns, Forever Changes seemed muted, safe, dangerous...

    Credo in Unum Tonum - Why Was Beyond Words Different From All Other New York Concerts?

    It's odd, isn't it, that we so easily identify a certain type of music as "spiritual." Spiritual music is slow, or at least slowly changing, yet vibrant in energy, with a lot of high register, mostly consonant though riddled with sustained, poignantl...

    The Beats of Baja - Techno and Tex-Mex Push Their Love Over the Borderline

    Its just about 3 a.m. on a Sunday last month in Nortec City when a short, stocky, balding DJ-programmer named Bostich gets on stage in front of a dwindling crowd of post-ravers for his set of minimalist techno-meets-regional Mexican musica drum n...

    Video Kills the Video Star - MTV Used to Be Madonnas Playground. Why Did It Have to End?

    The long fingers of pianist Vijay Iyer, who appeared with his quartet in the recent Jazz Gallery series, "Pianobility," look like tarantula legs as they scamper across the keys, arched high and slightly bent at the knuckles. In liner notes and promot...

    Reason to Believe

    Quietly, perhaps surprisingly, Bruce Springsteen has begun writing anthems again. A new song called "My City of Ruins" marks his best work since Born in the U.S.A., though it's not included on his new Live in New York City. For now, the track is avai...
