    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...

    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'

    FUGAZI The Argument Dischord Records At one point in Jem Cohen's 1999 band documentary Instrument, the members of Fugazi amuse themselves by exchanging the faux-punchy praise of music journalists: "Guy, you're the Danny Kaye of hip hop....

    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...

    Coup De Grce - The Political Message of the Coup's 'Party Music' Survives the Catastrophe in New York

    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...

    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...

    Strange Brew

    I must admit that I have an affinity for uncanny experiences. Like the time I reprinted an old photo of my mother and found--in the new, blurry version--that her long hair appeared to grow straight out of the walls in the background of the picture. O...

    A Brief History

    Listening to Lateduster, you can't help but think that Stephen Hawking was on to something. The bang and the bounce of A Brief History of Time could seamlessly intersect with the waves of static expanding and contracting within Lateduster's music. As...

    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...

    Lost And Found Sound

    Equal parts Sherlock Holmes, Sigmund Freud, and Steve Forbert, Damien Jurado conjures whole histories from small details. The Seattle-based singer-songwriter's economy with words is uncanny: He requires only eight ("a suitcase, ten dollars, and a sad...

    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...

    Short Cuts

    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...
