    George Bowman's "Tribute to Maxine Johnson" - Lady got back

    The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year, alternately known as "Black Friday" and "Blitz Day," when people get up at 4 a.m. to barrel over each other in shopping carts and take advantage of the ridiculous rollbacks. If you'r...

    All-American Rejects - There's a Lego game?

    Somewhere, "power-pop" sticklers are brooding that these Oklahomans can't possibly apply that mantle to what it is that they do. According to most universally accepted theorems, most power-pop bands are in their late 30s and early 40s, unless they ha...

    Lady Sovereign - Public Warning (Def Jam)

    Lady Sovereign may not seem as revolutionary as the last great British hip-hop export, M.I.A. In fact, at times, her record feels a bit like M.I.A. and Dizzee Rascal sitting down to tea. But it's the pintsize rapper's cheeky personality that ultimate...
