    The CDnow Album Advisor says that Everlast fans should also shop Billy Joel, the Dave Matthews Band, A Tribe Called Quest, the Beastie Boys, Lauryn Hill, and, er, Sammy Kaye's Best of the Big Bands maybe the swing revival really is a conspiracy. At ...

    Since alleged mensches the Beasties have become preoccupied with saving monks, it's schlemiels like Busta and Wyclef whom we count on to carry the kishke on behalf of Borscht Belt sensibilities. So it figures that a novelty rap act called M.O.T. h...

    Buy Kid Rock's Devil Without a Cause, and you're entering a world in which craziness still lives, an untroubled, happy craziness in which people with no celebrity status at all tract-house suburb people can act free. The Kid, who offstage is Bob Ri...

    Shake Your Bodega

    If Fun Lovin' Criminals were the Ramones, their rst album's "King of New York" would've been titled "Gotti Is a Don," and their new album's "The View Belongs to Everyone" would be "The Return of Gotti and Paulie." They don't believe in lyric sheets ...

    Words Set, Not Sung - Melody Sumner Carnahan

    Nineteenth-century composers had Goethe and Heinrich Heine and Maurice Maeterlinck to set to music. Today we have Santa Fe writer Melody Sumner Carnahan, whose enigmatic texts have formed the basis for more pieces of music I know than any other recen...

    Jazz's New Wing

    Given all the clamor over whether or not Lincoln Center should unload inanimate treasures to subsidize performing ones, I was surprised at the lack of attention generated by the New York Philharmonic's plan for recycling Bach in 2000, the 250th anniv...

    Wednesday, CB's Gallery. They're selling Daniel Johnston art, $50 for a color print, $25 for black-and-white, all the size of typing paper, images guaranteed haunted, generally filled with severed limbs and heads and his favorite self- image, the big...

    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...

    A Bulgar Display

    Time was when a crowd of people circle dancing at 2 a.m., guzzling slivovitz, and showering greenbacks on a clarinetist would not have occasioned comment on Delancey Street. My ancestors did it. The five bucks Tonic charged for the slivovitz (blech!)...

    Sugar Magnolia

    Rockin' in the weary land? I'll say. Out here in the smog, bouncing across the potholes with the volume cranked, it's, like, really nice, Donna the Buffalo pumping in fresh air, the flash and feeling of rivers and falls and farms and fields, the eagl...

    No Sleep Till Retrial

    How presumptuous is it to expect the Antichrist to be an unforgiving savage and utterly cruel? Apparently both "Antichrist" and "rock 'n' roll" now mean the same thing: a little play, a whole lotta lights, and some totally fucking awesome costumes. ...

    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....

    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...

    On the Honey

    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...
