    Fox on the Run

    Pride. It's a helluva lot better than low self-esteem, and maybe even more useful than anger. Pride may isolate you, but at least you can live with yourself. Except in hip-hop, where Biggie's and Tupac's deaths rewrote the stakes of stardom, boasting...

    No Sleep Till Retrial

    In a sold-out Continental Airlines Arena last week in support of either a merciless cop killer or a criminally enslaved African American dissident (depends on who you ask), Rage Against the Machine's Jimmy Page powerchords and hectoring editorial rap...

    Bhagavad Guitar - Tisziji Muoz's Spatial Projects

    Where does music come from? Musicians are like radio receivers, proposes one theory, transforming sounds already zipping through the ether into the sculpted air that eventually tickles our tympanic membranes. Turn 'em on, tune 'em in, and stand back....

    Dakar in Gear

    The work of fiction Mark Hudson's The Music in My Head most recalls is Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, another tale of a record collector defeating his mania on the road to mature love, la dee dah. Only it's not much like High Fidelity, because plot isn...

    The Beats Go On

    Any music that can potentially get Cher back in her bejeweled Bob Mackie drag is a good thing. When America's 53-year-old eternal teenager has an excuse to parade a swanky outfit (the Studio 54/"Take Me Home" era, her early '70s dark lady period, and...

    Who's There?

    Bill Callahan's voice is changing. It's not just that he's stopped singing through a coffee can, or whatever he used in the prepubescent lo-fi days of his musical project, Smog. It's as if all those dives into his own bathysphere of miserablism have ...

    Melancholy Machines

    Ever since Luigi Russolo bent his avant-garde ear to trains, bombs, and automobiles, declaring the arrival of a new "art of noises," the music of machines has been the site for future shock. As Kodwo Eshun argues in his book More Brilliant Than the S...

    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...

    Moment by Moment - How Jungle Is--and Isn't--the 'New Jazz'

    "It's Jazzy." "Jazz 100." "Jaz Architecture." Jazz & Bass Session, Volume II. Jazz in a Box. Jaz-Klash. When jungle, the most messianic of electronica subcultures, isn't busy declaring itself the Next Big Thing, it's dubbing itself the New Jazz. Whic...

    Doing It Live - Drum'n'BassWith Drums and Basses

    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...

    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!
