    Soul Survivors - Todays hip-hop owes a huge debt to De La Souland the tab keeps growing

    To a hip-hop fan, writing about how good De La Soul is or how much De La Soul has contributed to the progression and preservation of true hip-hop would be like writing about this hip new place called Silver Lake--ever heard of it?--while drawing com...

    Working-Class Heroes - Radio Saints claim to be the peoples band

    Remember when rock music had just one name: Rock? This was before the days of this hardcore/posicore/emo/screamo crap. A band's style didn't have to be dissected into category, then subcategory, then clever combination of two subcategories and so on...

    Cherub Rock - A toddler and her dad road-test alt-lullabies

    Since becoming a parent, I've increasing believed this: if a 1-year-old doesn't respond to music, there's a strong chance it's not so good. A 9-month-old won't try to tell you Thursday is really sophisticated pop. (They're not.) A 2-year-old won't b...

    Dustjackets - Abstract Workshop Anniversary Party

    Not Rioting - The Ataris

    There's a lot of stock in "good" vs. "bad" in this racket. To wit: when a new album comes out and is shot into the hands of execs, managers, agents, publicists, bookers and fluffers, it's always accompanied by a brief declaration of whether or not i...

    CD Review - The Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound, Ekranoplan, Tee Pee Records

    Endless Music Vs. Endless Promotion - Recapping South by Southwest

    From Austin, Texas-- You'll never believe that the last show I saw at SXSW was also the best. It seems too good to be true, like I'm giving it too much weight, trying to wrap things up with a dramatic flourish, faking a climax for the sake of a go...

    Hep to the Hip - Crying in my moosehead over the Tragically Hip

    Writing about the Tragically Hip feels like coming out of the closet. I was born and raised in Canada, and have revealed as much in print and to my American colleagues, but the Hip are to Canadians what Mariah is (and Cher was) to the gays: canonica...

    Marry Me - Everyone knows and loves indie rock-country darlings the Watson Twins

    AlL right, before you start wondering, let's just get it out of the way: yes, they're the Watson Twins as in Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins. Yes, they are those two really-mysteriously-sultry-women in the mirror image blue dresses standing in the ...

    Biblical Plauges - The Locust

    But What About the Hip-hop, Tom? - Saul Williams

    This year's SXSW will feature a more than satisfactory amount of hip-hop and hip-hop related artists--which is more than I can say for Coachella--according to its 8,000 page line-up posted online. Hip-hop household names include Aesop Rock, Buck 65,...

    Balls Out, Righteous, Hilarious - Thats Clipse now, but wait until they really rip it open

    One of my favorite ladies calls me and yells, "What it do!?" into the phone. Every day. A salutation torn from a Clipse song ("Wamp Wamp") is always appreciated, especially this week, as I've been in something of a Clipse coma. I'm revitalized in my...
