    Life and Death - With his most recent release, Hip-Hop Is Dead, acclaimed MC Nas delivered a bitter requiem for rap. But is it truly a time for mourning?

    Every now and then there comes a pivotal character in any culture, someone who disrupts the norm. Some people call them prophets. In hip-hop, we call him Nas. Since his emergence in 1991 with a verse on Main Source's "Live at the Barbecue," heads kn...

    Tegan & Sara - The Con (Vapor/Sire)

    The musical output of these Canadian twins inevitably carries with it a vaguely alien air. One can just imagine Tegan & Sara in Montreal and Vancouver, respectively, engaging in some seizure-like sibling communication and spontaneously birthing The ...

    Velvet Revolver - Libertad (RCA)

    As with Contraband, the first Velvet Revolver CD, Libertad is an amalgam of its influences: some good (Guns N' Roses), others less so (Stone Temple Pilots). Still, the unregenerate retro-ness of the project--and of Slash's axing in general--will lea...

    Broka's Bliss, Autovaughn, Electric Church, Bang Bang Bang - Friday, July 27, at the Rockyard

    These days, modern rock--and by that, we mean straight-ahead bass-drums-guitar--has taken a strange and often irritating turn. A genre that once frightened parents has grown tepid, plagued by hookless guitar work and excruciatingly boring, anthemic,...

    Living Off Experience - Jacob Rodriguez proves to be a worthy Accomplice

    Sitting across from Jacob Rodriguez, it's easy to be taken aback by his well-spoken demeanor and baby-faced good charm. Although he plays hip-hop under the name Accomplice and has, in the past, written lyrics as violent and sexist as just about any ...

    Dicks and Janes

    It's about midnight on a Saturday night at the Monkey Bar, and I find myself rather confused. It's a few beers into the evening, so colors are blurring and edges are bending at odd angles, but, though my wits are softened, they are still about me...

    Greyskull - Pretty in Ink (Self-released)
