    Heal Thyself During an exhilarating performance by Colombia's Aterciopelados ("The Velvety Ones") at Bowery Ballroom on May 1, folksy-voiced frontwoman Andrea Echeverri dedicated "Chamnico" to the shamans of the Putumayo region in her country. A ...

    The Rubber Meets the Wind

    Belgian techno, a style that sprang up in an area called Flanders that's hardly bigger than Connecticut, still survivesflourishes, even 15 years after it began. Case in point: Lords of Acid's Farstucker, a CD dark and woozy, hard and scrawny, a bit...

    Beyonc Good and Evil

    As the name suggests, there's only one infant messiah in Destiny's Child, and Survivor (note singular) is for all purposes the inevitable first solo record from the young lady with the omnipotent dad and the Astrodome-sized persecution complex. Beyon...

    Infiltrate It

    "Pop Muzik" by Marcus and "I'm Afraid of Britney Spears" by LiveonRelease are unsubtle attempts at, respectively, collegiate parody and high school alienation. As responses to teenpop from the outsideaway from the focus groups and factoriesthese re...

    Alias in Wonderland - Buffalo Gals and Mustang Sallys

    In 1972, a singer named Mary McCaslin flushed Hollywood and headed into a West she'd seen only from airplanes. A damn folkie in the Age of Dick (Nixon) and Quaaludes, she carried a notebook, a guitar, hard-won studio expertise, and a hard-fed appetit...

    More, More, More - Sex Workers and Alcoholics Dominate Popular Music Once Again

    I have nothing especially insightful to say about Aerosmith's "Jaded," Alien Ant Farm's "Smooth Criminal," the Beatnuts' "No Escapin' This," Crazy Town's "Butterfly" and "Revolving Door," Missy Elliott's "Get Ur Freak On," Sara Evans's "Born to Fly,"...

    The other day, I was leafing through the latest Righteous Babe catalog, unable to settle on either the white ribbed tank (also known as a wife beater, but this is Ani DiFranco we're talking about here) labeled "righteous," or on the black spaghetti-s...

    If the music industry had a sense of humor, next year's Grammy for Most Ironic Cover Version would go to Run DMC's "Let's Stay Together." With r&b crooners Jagged Edge doing their best to ape Al Green, Run dedicates the opening rap to D: "You, Jay, a...

    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...
