    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...

    Happily Ever After

    John Waters once wrote that "more than anything in the world, I hate people who confide, 'I had the weirdest dream last night.' " I enthusiastically agree. But that said, here is my confession of obsession with Elliott Smith, as written in my noteboo...

    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...

    What the hell is William Duckworth doing? For 20 years he was a pioneer of the widespread (and woefully unacknowledged) postminimalist movement, weaving elegantly precise scores like The Time Curve Preludes and Southern Harmony from folk-music patter...

    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...

    Velvet Gloves and Spit

    When I first heard Papas Fritas' self-titled debut, I imagined the trio were playing their cute little pop songs on tiny toy instruments. The album had an appealing, sugarcoated residue of unsullied innocence, with lyrics that either rang out like pe...

    Here's what intrigues me about Shelby Lynne, the country singer whose new album has been enjoying the sort of blanket media salivation only Dave Eggers can truly appreciate. The Lynne of all the feature stories is basically Jerry Lee Lewis. She grew ...

    Labor Pains "It's just work!" That's the lesson Warhol taught Lou Reed. It guided him through decades of rockstardom and the weekend's shows at the Knitting Factory, warming up to tour for Ecstasy, Reed's first studio record since 1996. Art is work...

    The Way the Cracker Crumbles
