    2006 Ear Infection Pandemic Poll

    Seems a little pissing match has erupted on the interweb in the masturbatory little world of music criticism, between my own company and sister paper Village Voice's annual Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll and Gawker media's too-cool-for-school Idolator musi...

    Dazzler

    Despite authoring this blog, I'm not much of a software geek; I've got to rely on some smarter heads at HQ to fix little interweb/html quandaries for me, and I don't install new programs often. Nonetheless, I got sucked in when I read a ...

    Fresh Emo Rap

    Well, I guess "emo rap" is a bit insulting, but my friends in Who Cares (who are Sacto-based but spend a lot of time in the 'Nix) pretty much wear their hearts on their sleeves, especially Ernie, the group's MC. I hadn't heard from them since their a...

    Dance Dance Revolution

    Not sure if it's the holidaze or or just the cooler weather that's causing so much dope action on the music tip lately, but I really don't care. Fact is, practically every night of the week there's some bomb shit going on. Tonight's no exception. If ...

    Bach to Basics - Because it's not Taco Bell's Cannon

    About a year ago, a former girlfriend asked me why this town seemed so culture-less. She's from Los Angeles and is the sort of girl who likes to dress up and go to the ballet. "In L.A., people our age get dressed up and go to the symphony; you'll see...

    Confessions of an Ex-Juggalo - White-on-white crime

    In the suburbs outside Detroit during 1994 and 1995 the years I followed horror-rap duo Insane Clown Posse's rise to local infamy there was, I now realize, nothing more uncool than an ICP fan. In any parking lot, in any neighborhood that wasn't a...

    Getting Harry - We love the Connick

    The music opens with flowery acoustic guitars double-tracked for a 12-string feel and shimmying with opulent drama, reminiscent of records made in the '60s by acid-hungry British rockers prowling green country lanes in faux-druidic rituals. After a d...

    Cinco de Mellow - Keeping it calm

    Emperors of Japan - Your Freak Majesty (Dark Black Records)

    Jackie McLean - New and Old Gospel (Blue Note Records)

    The late alto saxophonist Jackie McLean was infamous for a rich and powerful tone, a heroin addiction, and being the dude who nearly stabbed iconoclast Charles Mingus after the big bully bassist punched him. But one thing overlooked during McLean's c...

    Priestbird - In Your Time (Kemado)

    The Silver Daggers - Keep your hands inside the vehicle

    The Los Angeles coeds in Silver Daggers bring the apocalyptic no-wave party ruckus, and then some: They're a viciously exuberant counterpoint to like-minded labelmates Coughs. On the quintet's latest adrenalized outing New High and Ord, on Load f...

    RJD2 - Generic slide

    RJD2's The Third Hand is the kind of alternative hip-hop record that raises the question: When does a particular artist stop being alternative anything and start to step outside the confines of a single genre? What's even more impressive is that RJD2...

    Kittie, and Walls Of Jericho - Lucid screaming

    Both of these acts offer a fresh feminine perspective in genres with an overabundance of "masculine" posturing and one-dimensional angst while also refusing to draw attention to their "femaleness" for its own sake. Indeed, Morgan Lander and Candace K...
