    Uriah Careys On

    "Only the young stay young," bleat Uriah Heep on Sonic Origami, the first American-released "new" CD (technically it's a year and a half old, at least in Japan) by the Mortimer Snerds of heavy metal in, oh, about five years. Although the candle burns...

    Calling All Trolls

    With an appearance on South Park under his belt, Dave Grohl wearing his T-shirt onstage, and "Holy Diver" the only experiment that didn't suck Satan's penis on Pat Boone's 1997 lounge-metal CD, Ronnie James Dio could almost be mistaken for hip. So if...

    Hardcore Jollies

    Last year's renaissance of interest in house was based largely on a craving for pleasantness in dance music. With techno and drum'n'bass both locked in grinding hair-shirt minimalism, house's sensuousness beckoned hipsters like a quenching oasis. But...

    The Key to Letting Go - Morton Feldmans Last Work Achieved Mysticism Through Simplicity

    Rock and Roll Part 2 1/2

    Three things strike me most about the house records I've enjoyed cleaning the dishes to these last few years: A surprising number of them have come from France (Daft Punk, Cassius, Bob Sinclar), most of them have been relatively vocal-free (or at mos...

    Read any good kids' books lately? I recommend William Joyce's Rolie Polie Olie, which recounts a day in the life of a spacey young orb and his spherical family, whose "Rolie Polie Rumba Dance was always done in underpants." Lullaby Baxter, the cerebr...

    They're with Stupid

    To answer your question, no, they haven't tried to make "Tubthumping II." Chumbawamba are perfectly aware that most of their listeners think their 10th or so album is their second, and they're beating everyone else to the backlash. The only song on W...

    True to Their Schools?

    Dear Talib, Okay, so maybe you're rightjuxtaposing two seemingly random albums like Beanie Sigel's The Truth and Dead Prez's Let's Get Free isn't quite an impossible feat. And I second your emotion, it would be presumptuous to expect all rappers to...

    Timbaland sure is on the radio a lot, even when he's not. Turn on Hot 97 right now, wait 15 minutes, and you'll hear either Aaliyah's "Try Again," Nas and Ginuwine's "You Owe Me," or the Lox's "Ryde or Dye Chick/Bitch," all of which he officially pro...

    Uh-Huh OK Whassup Shut Up

    My favorite TV show is BET's Comicview, the stand-up showcase that airs every night at nine. Punch lines are few and far between, and they're usually drowned out by a noisy audience that stays one step ahead of the comedians. So I tune in for the set...

    Atomic Punks - Indie Rock Gets Mechanized

    The cyborg was never the best metaphor for '80s new wave synth music, because cyborgs always have a bit of human left in them. From Kraftwerk forward, many new wavers aspired to machine immersion, a state where you could hide behind blips and beeps a...
