    Chuck Love on fighting parrots, being extra funky

    Live instrumentation is a hallmark of Chuck's performances, and it's a thrill to see him pick up a trumpet, flute, or guitar and add improvisational touches to his impeccable selection of records. In many cases, those records were created by Love hi...

    The Songs We Can't Escape

    EAT SKULL "Dog Religion" No-fi, washed-out shove-punk that might as well have been recorded into the producer's answering machine through a pipe; think early Misfits, only noisier, more sonically infested. Times New Viking, eat your relatively...

    Sigur Rs: Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust

    Stark-naked, bounding across highways, running for the hills. The revealing cover for Sigur Ros's latest musical excursion, Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust ("With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly"), is both a surprising visual and a thesis...

    The ZMO Trio: The ZMO Trio EP

    The first 30 seconds of the ZMO Trio's self-titled debut EP is nothing if not striking: The delicate bass arpeggios, the roomy, naturalistic drums, and the tinkling, intricate piano all point to a modern, progressive jazz recording, but then singer/...

    Twin Cities rap scene offers anonymity through community - Our writer explores local hip hop via five shows in four nights

    My mission seemed impractical, if not downright quixotic: get down with five shows over four days in a whirlwind effort to synthesize a neat little encapsulation of the Twin Cities' rap scene. The journey would take me from the unconventional (a sho...

    Action Versus Action's live show: more than just a shtick - The high-octane, harmonic pop music comes with gimmicks

    Just before sundown on a hot summer evening, the mini-golf course at the Walker Art Center is packed. A line of people fidget impatiently as they wait their turn to play the next elaborate, artist-rendered putt-putt hole, but my companions, the five...

    Bush grants clemency for gangsta rapper's cocaine bust

    Perhaps the commander in chief sees some of himself in Forte-- like Bush's presidency itself, Forte's innocence is nigh indefensible. Notwithstanding, the case sent the best and brightest stars of the music world to his aid. Carly Simon, for example....

    Kurt Cobain: The Ouija Interview

    His legacy is beyond reproach-- with only his wit and his can-do attitude, he single-handedly inspired such luminaries as Monster Magnet, Silverchair and Seven Mary Three. But what has he done for us lately? The Cobain camp has been suspiciously mum ...

    Chooglin', 'You Sucked the Life Out of Me'

    Let's kick things off with something local, and maybe a bit familiar -- in this case, Minneapolis' own Chooglin'. Picture what punk rock would sound like in 1978 if it was a subset of the era's boogie-rock and proto-metal rather than a repudiation of...

    The Sinks and Les Deux Magots tonight at Memory Lanes

    Tonight's line-up is, as always, much louder than love. The Sinks are an aptly named three-piece, a gruesome and messy take on the grime and grist left over when all the foam and froth of punk rock washed down the drain in that garage workroom. Loud,...
