    Three Degrees Celsius and Rising - Canadian Hip-Hop Thaws Out

    The Canadian press has burped up a lot of hoopla lately about the sudden deluge of homegrown hip-hop, and, this being Canada and all, the stories have nothing to do with aesthetics and everything to do with whether honchos at BET will give a damn. We...

    Words Belied by Music - Songs of Dargel and Reich Offer a Deceptive Simplicity

    I hope I never become an old curmudgeon, reflexively dismissive of the younger generation. The unsettling truth, though, is that I find a lot of twentysomething composers eerily conservative, seemingly unaware of the last 25 years of new music and wr...

    Froggys Got a Squeezebox

    Last time you heard so much accordion, chances are it was polka and you were drunkenly foraging through your grandparents' vinyl. Or maybe you were in New Orleans for a weekend of debauchery and zydeco. But what the amorphous Parisian band Les Primit...

    All Fall Down

    Seven years it's taken Welsh well-to-dos Catatonia to be heard in the states, and the wait has seated them royally, with a foxy Cerys Matthews adorning the covers and pages of publications around the country, at the peak of all her sex-kitten reputed...

    Memphis Bleak

    Time was, great hip-hop was self-evident. With few exceptions, the best rap albums of the '80s were also the most widely celebrated, and everybody knew a classic when they heard it. Then things got messy: The '90s saw the rise and fall of a bitter bi...

    The Knitting Factory's former What Is Jazz? festival has resolved its identity crisis, the way the Borg on Star Trek do. As the Bell Atlantic Jazz Festival, it has assimilated every musical genre it can get its hands on and expanded its territorial r...

    Saved by the Classics - Bell Meets (Is?) Big Brother

    Okay, so Michael Dorf is not the Flo Ziegfeld of jazz, not yet. Forgive the prefestival enthusiasm, but the pain of festivals past, like the pain of pregnancy, has no shelf life. Last year at this time I was vowing to be in another country this year ...

    Pushin' Less Hard

    In the Offspring's "Self Esteem," my favorite hard-rock single of the '90s, a hapless pincushion contemplates registering a complaint with his girlfriend. Her various transgressions include spending his money, abusing him, sleeping around with his fr...

    November Songs

    For Lou Reed and Patti Smith, old heroes with new product, maturity's not exactly a breaking story. Lou's goes back 18 years to The Blue Mask, and while Patti's official seniority starts in 1995, when the androgynous poet turned widowed mother return...

    What It Was

    You think you're bad. You are so not bad. Sonny Hopson could quite feasibly be called bad. Hopson was a disc jockey who waited for nobody's approval and played 45s on the radio in Philadelphia in the 1960s. Radio was segregated, life was pretty segre...

    How much it had to do with my abiding virginity and being insecure around the indie rockers in high school, I'm not sure. But in 1994, at 15, I disavowed Pearl Jam as my spread, though they were still on the toast of the town; Vitalogy not only sucke...
