    Your Brain on Music - Science starts to unravel our natural affinity

    How does music engage and touch us so deeply? Why is its presence so intrinsic to what we do? It's everywhere, from stereos and headphones to movie soundtracks and commercials. Even our voices possess a unique musicality. It's hardly essential to lif...

    Soulman

    Theres a slew of reasons we dig Al Page. Not only does the laid-back DJ and promoter have one of the most fly Afros in all of P-Town, but he also busts much ass on both the record decks and behind the scenes at the Hidden House, 607 West Osborn Road...

    Naughty and Nice - What do musicians want in their stockings?

    Every year around the office, it's the same old pickle: What do you buy for the Secret Santa gift exchange? You don't want to go super-cheap, because somehow everyone always figures out you were the jackass who bought the stupid Bush-isms desk calend...

    Pity: Our Greatest Marketing Tool - A look at 2007's most successful train wrecks

    How is it that two of 2007's top sellers -- Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears -- sold more than a million records in the U.S. without touring the U.S. this year? It's because pity has become the new indispensable promotional tool. See how your faves h...

    Music for the Eyes - A bevy of new music DVDs, just in time for the holidays

    Music DVDs are typically used as stopgaps between CD releases or to drum up support for some other project an artist is promoting. Most amount to little more than music-video compilations, hastily shot concert films, or the latest chapters in continu...

    Frame One: Sundance sensation brings the Frames' Glen Hansard to the screen

    The Real Bar closes without notice

    I never went to the Real Bar a whole lot because, well, the service sucked and the setup for their all ages shows left the drinkers (i.e. the ones spending real money) at a sight line disadvantage when the bands were playing. It's nice to still have...

    Holiday Smear - Santa and sangria at Retro Redux

    Christmas cheer can be found in the oddest of places. We stumbled upon it in the midst of clothing and knick-knacks (most likely acquired from the dead) at Retro Redux's Kitschy Christmas Party on Saturday, December 8. As with any vintage clothing an...

    There's nothing new going on here, just straight-up, raging metal. We didn't bother to read Body of Scars' list of influences (if they have one), because we can clearly hear them. The dual guitars churn out the high-pitched, racing-scale solos master...
