    The 'Son' Also Rises

    The Cuban embargo has turned the country into something of a time capsule. Deprived for 39 years of the resources needed for the cycles of demolition and new construction that we find in our economy, Cubans have maintained their old buildings as be...

    Sub Pop - Anti-Pop Consortium Return Hip Hop to the Art of the Rhyme

    Pop is a loaded word. Some lazyboneses attempt to make it an all-inclusive term, lumping everything from bluegrass to dancehall under its aegis. But the stringent adherents of genre affiliations won't be having that: Pop is a dismissive term among an...

    Feather Weight

    Yowling her bluesy pop all over MTV and shaking her raging fireball hair like she owns the joint, Nikka Costa could easily be mistaken for a female Carrot Top who cries like Macy Gray, or a tiny R&B Nicole Kidman in CHiPS shades and ripped rock-metal...

    Neighborhood Watch - Fireball Espresso Caf Keeps an Eye on Local Hip Hop

    I've always thought that the Mr. Rogers theme song would make a good hip-hop sample. Who cares that he's giving a shout-out to his neighbors instead of his peeps. The man knows the hip-hop golden rule: You've gotta respect your 'hood. And since most ...

    Best Laid Plan - Dismemberment Plan Search for "Meaningful Relationships"

    You know, sometimes I think bohemia ain't all it's cracked up to be. Maybe the notion of a culture where alternative routes to maturity can be devised and nurtured is just the stankiest sort of utopian doo-doo. Maybe we should just be grateful for ...

    For The Sake of 'Argument'

    This Postmodern World

    Those of us who grew up listening to Nirvana's Nevermind didn't need to have discerning schnozzes to know what teen spirit smelled like. It was adolescent rage. It was sexual frustration. It was the brand of deodorant preferred by your friend who als...

    Musical Chairs - The ICP Orchestra Shuffle Musical Genres and Play Their Seats

    The cellist rises in the middle of a song and starts heckling his own ensemble. The pianist plays a solo entirely with one finger. The drummer wanders into the audience, playing on chairs, and then meanders toward the bar, where he plays the glasse...

    Landslide Victory

    Is Since I Left You (Modular/XL), the stunning debut from sample-happy Australian sextet the Avalanches, a concept album? At the least, the album feels vaguely thematic. Not only do each of its 18 tracks seamlessly segue into each another, but the so...

    A Brief History

    Local band Punky Bruiser is moving away! Well, not really. But the all-grrrl queercore band suggests that this should be the first sentence in an article about them. It's easier to get laid when people think you're leaving town. Drummer Rudy Renavo a...

    Suck My Kiss - The idea of Harrington getting his fans to kiss him mid-performance is somewhat disquieting. Tom Jones he's not.

    Rock concerts stir strange passions in their audience members. Take the show indie rockers Les Savy Fav performed last year on Valentine's Day for an all-ages crowd in Baltimore. The performance was supposed to be all-ages, anyway. "There's a curf...

    Brotherly Love - The world is hell, but relax, baby: The Isley Brothers are still here

    Listen up, rockers. The definitive Isley Brothers single isn't 1959's "Shout," the father of all soul rave-ups. It's 1977's "Footsteps in the Dark," the father of all slow jams. Deceptively smooth and indebted to AM-radio pabulum, "Footsteps" enter...
