    Dog Food for Justice - A Tribute to Art and a Tribute From the Heart

    Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska is pretty unimposing for a monument. People embarrassed by the overstatement that made Springsteen a hero, and also the heroism that made him a hero, now often cite it as his best, but as an early dissenter from his overs...

    No Hype to Not Believe

    Just as the Internet has arrived to bring nations together in one big e-mailed chorus of "It's a Small World After All," the American record biz has entrenched itself in a phase of Brit-phobia more severe than in any other pop period since the one be...

    Struggling to the Surface

    Her voice has the tensile strength of a tuning fork, she can sing louder and softer than many who have come before and after her, and she's the Queen of Remorse. She pushed herself away from duets with country greats and toward interpretations of Jim...

    Sawing Through Italy - Giovanni Sollimas Musical Tour of Italy Enchants at Least One Listener

    Giovanni Sollima is being touted as "the Jimi Hendrix of the cello." No one ever stops to ask whether the cello needed a Jimi Hendrix. It's just taken for granted that if there's a slot open, someone will eventually fill it. Someday we'll have a Jimi...

    Stinkonia

    Not for a long time has a long mane signified rebellion, but cascading tresses at the very least once helped to camouflage a certain navet among young men who made rock 'n' roll. In spite of its postcubist goatees and slew of cryptic tattoos, the m...

    Talking about a Southern hip-hop album used to be easy. All you had to do, basically, was discuss the difference between Sunbelt rappers and Northern rappers, add a few anecdotes about how them all do down home, a generic reference to fried catfish, ...

    Fathership Connection - Common's and OutKast's New Vidclips Have Decent Stuff in Common

    Despite what some assiduous direct-mail marketers think, I am not female, black, or successful. But I am thinking about a black mother, specifically Erykah Badu, and her good taste in men. Her babydaddy, OutKast's Andre Benjamin a/k/a Andre 3000 a/k/...

    Dope Whites on Non-Punk

    While most turntablists are peach-fuzz-mustached little funk-Trekkies hanging out in their parents' basements trying to perfect scratches, Arizona's Z-Trip and Springfield, Missouri's DJ P are instigators. Or at least they have a sense of humor: Z-Tr...

    Where would director Chuck Jones's scwewy wabbit and puddy-tat be without the merry melodies of Carl Stalling and, especially, the splats, screeches, and collisions of FX wizard and unsung hero Treg Brown? (Ta-da!) Brown punctuated and complemented t...

    I've played the Radiohead album about a dozen times, pushed my way in to see them live, and yes, there is a certain pleasure to be had from Kid A. What seems at first like rote, enfeebled antirockism reveals a jittery, cohesive undercurrent. Unlike m...
