    Wimps of Desire

    Greetings from parochial southern California, where relentless local cheerleading brings you Tsar, who (their CD sticker rants) exhibit "all the qualities of what will rescue rock'n'roll." So unhelpful! While the big brag is deeply woven into the war...

    Touring the Jazz Museum - JVC 2000 Looks Backward

    That's Your Man Bilal has a couple of things going for him, besides being 20, cute, and considered the next big soul star. There's his voice, which can rasp, preach, and jar his nine-member band through a sandpaper rocker like "Second Child," then ...

    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...
