    In the Closet With the Blues - Keb Mo aint pretty no mo

    When I had last spoken to Keb' Mo', it was right around the time his synth-drenched shitbag of an album, Door, was released in the fall of 2000. That CD--more James Taylor than Skip James--came as such a disappointment that I determined I wanted no ...

    There Were Freaks Everywhere - The Vanishing come to terms with Gothness

    The Vanishing should be from Berlin, not San Francisco. Their In the Bat HausEP on SF indie Cochon is tied up tight in the grim chiaroscuro of German Expressionism, all woozy black-and-white shots that look like they were swept off Fritz Lang's cutt...

    The Saviors of Mexico, the Scourge of Latin Alternative - Kronos Quartet is the greatest thing that ever happened to Mexican music, Juanes just sucks

    You don't know anything about Mexico's stunningly diverse musical traditions. You couldn't tell a son jarocho from a son huasteco. All you know about mariachi is that sombreros, machismo and a heroic intake of tequila play a crucial role. And that's...
