    Turning Japanese - Never can say sayonara

    Right at that loud, sweaty moment when the crowd's ready to crawl on the stage from too much anxious waiting and too much beer, the lights go dark and the house music switches over to some blaring, swaggering tune fit for a movie about 1950s delinque...

    Carl Craig - Fabric 25 (Fabric)

    Carl Craig's approach has, from the outset, been far-reaching. Holding it down in techno's very birthplace, Detroit, the DJ/producer segues from house and hip-hop to techno and drum 'n bass in Ecstasy-size furies (his label name isn't Planet-E for no...

    Jazzanova - The Remixes 2002-2005 (Sonar Kollektiv)

    Jazzanova has made its mark for long remixes -- at times, exceedingly long -- for nearly a decade. The six-member German-based collective (or, as the group's label name suggests, Kollektiv) is more geared toward interpretation than creation, and this...

    New York Dolls - All Dolled Up DVD (Music Video Distributors)

    PCMM Festival - Crazy, man

    Can't you hear this beer-drowned bar conversation among audiophiles? "We should call all the experimental musician cats around town and form a music collective. Yeah, avant-garde aficionados would really dig it." Then reality strikes. "Organi...

    Saves the Day - One screams, the other doesn't

    Arriving on the heels of the Get Up Kids' success, Saves the Day burst out of the box with 1999's Through Being Cool, a terrific punk-pop album keyed to singer Chris Conley's lovelorn croon. STD's follow-up, 2001's Stay What You Are, vindicated the b...

    (International) Noise Conspiracy - Lyrics with footnotes

    If Kurt Cobain can get a hit musing about disposable teenage culture, why can't a bunch of Swedish Marxists? If, as Marx suggests, communism is a post-capitalistic construct, then perhaps (I)NC is the tipping point. Formed around Dennis Lyxzn, leader...

    Desole - Sweet and long-lasting

    Most up-and-coming bands lack the range to outlive the shelf life of a time-bomb single or a bad hair fad, but infectious rock locals Desole sound equally taut blaring in a bar or wistfully crooning in a black-lighted bedroom. The boys from Desole (p...
