    Melancholy Machines

    On the Honey

    It's hard to think about anything but honey in the presence of jazz legend Cassandra Wilson. The deep, rich tones of her voice evoke the gloss and viscosity of honey. Her band drips expansive and static arrangements of originals and reimagined standa...

    Out To Lurch

    Maybe the swellest thing about the first wave of electroboogie funk in the early '80s, "Planet Rock" and the Jonzun Crew, Space Invaders and all the rest, was how, without making a fuss about it, a whole different way of feeling about the city jumped...

    Imajinary Stories - Ultimate Compilation Mania, 1999

    If you do the math right, the most important new song of 1998 was Imajin's "Shorty (You Keep Playin' With My Mind)." A not-what-you'd-call-a-hit single by a factory-stamped quartet that's yet to release an album, it's nonetheless turned up on Club Mi...

    Sugar High '98 - Pop Still Matters? You Must Be Crazy!
