    Out & About - Paul Oakenfold

    It honestly may not matter how fast a man can shear a single sheep, or how many words can be written on the back of a stamp, or any of the other odds and ends that fill up The Guinness Book of World Records. But somewhere in that mountain of minuti...

    Indoor Fireworks - In ABBA's old studio, Elvis Costello and Anne Sofie von Otter reinterpret pop music history

    Elvis Costello knows what critics and fans will call For the Stars, the album he recorded with Swedish mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter: a collection of covers of songs written by Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, Tom Waits, ABBA, Ron Sexsmith and, y...

    Blues Valentine - Tom Waits for no one--except guitarist-singer John Hammond

    By 1974, John Hammond had played with damned near every great bluesman who ever lived: Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Duane Allman, Charlie Musselwhite, Mike Bloomfield, John Lee Hooker, the Staples Singers. For starters. He had made records with Robb...

    Music: Response - You may only know him from Madonna's Music, but Mirwais has been around for years

    Madonna has called him "a genius" and "the future of sound." So how does Mirwais Ahmadzai, who produced much of the Material Mom's latest effort, Music, and now has released his own album, Production, deal with such superlatives, especially coming ...

    Scene, Heard - Just in case you missed it

    In case you missed it--and judging by the crowd jimmied into the newly reopened Trees, not many did--The Toadies celebrated the release of Hell Below/Stars Above on March 20 and 21. (The expiration date on jokes has officially passed.) Not sure wha...

    Tortoise - Standards (Thrill Jockey)

    The first discordant moment of Standards, the latest album from Tortoise, signals a new direction for the Chicago instrumentalists. Actually, it's as if Tortoise has not only changed directions but run the train completely off the track, the result...

    Jeff Beck - You Had It Coming (Epic)

    You can bestow the title of History's Greatest Rock Guitarist upon Jeff Beck, and few could provide a convincing argument to the contrary. He produces his wizardry "naturally"--merely using a modified Stratocaster and Marshall JCM 2000. Which means...

    Teenage Fanclub - Howdy! (Columbia)

    I believe there exists an alternate universe--a parallel world in which Eminem doesn't win Grammys, Fred Durst doesn't run a record company and the Backstreet Boys work at Abercrombie and Fitch. In that world, bands like Teenage Fanclub top the cha...

    Out & About - U2

    Writing about U2 is a bit like dancing about old architecture. Not 'cause it misses the point (that's writing about Coal Chamber), but 'cause these guys are like dependable buildings, solid and functional and, when you catch them in the right light...

    Out & About - Hey Mercedes

    A friend of mine (well, sort of a friend: We stopped hanging out when he started ditching me for the obviously-not-as-cool kids) used to try to convince me that Braid was the best example of the worst music white kids can make. He believed the Urba...

    Out & About - Outkast

    As someone who didn't initially come to hip-hop for emotional or cultural validation, I'm always excited by rap that moves me in mysterious ways. That never happened much for me with stuff by Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, the two MCs I'd call the...

    Out & About - The New Year

    If ever a rock band named itself appropriately, it was Bedhead. Between 1993 and 1998, the band, led by brothers Matt and Bubba Kadane, trudged through three albums chock-full of somnambulant tempos, geologically gradual dynamic shifts, and low-aff...

    See By Be Seen - At the annual South by Southwest music festival, it's the singer, not the song

    This year, for whatever reason, things seemed more possible at South by Southwest, also/better known as the music industry's annual paid vacation. Something/anything/everything sounded reasonable, no matter who said it or how unlikely it probably w...

    Tired of Waiting - The center of the musical universe, Austin welcomes the beautiful and the ugly

    South by Southwest, now as gangly and awkward as any 15-year-old, doesn't take place in Austin--not really, not anymore. The music conference--which has become the climax (or anticlimax) of a film festival that draws the likes of Ann Richards, Siss...

    Fuck - Cupid's Cactus (Smells Like Records)

    Before a group of metal-schooled, post-punk-bred young American men came around in the early 1990s to smelt a solid sheet of polyrhythmic guitar and percussion abuse, "math rock" referred to an algebraic approach to adding up a band's sound. Like a...

    Scene, Heard - Dallas-Denton-Forth Worth bands make their biggest impact yet at SXSW

    Out & About - David Sanborn

    Nothing says "adult contemporary" or "smooth jazz" quite like the presence of a tantric sex advocate, and the vocal appearance by Sting on alto saxophonist David Sanborn's most recent release, 1999's Inside, squarely places the album on the Najee-C...

    Out & About - Darren Emerson

    Sometimes, it's all about getting back to the basics. For Darren Emerson, formerly of the band Underworld, the basics mean getting back behind the turntables as a club DJ. The attraction to DJing is almost like an addiction, something that Emerson ...

    Dallas Stars - On their fifth album, The Old 97's have gone too far to care

    "Two nights ago in Manhattan, I was onstage thinking that there's something very cheap about this job," Rhett Miller says, via phone from the roof of a nightclub in Baltimore. Miller, singer-guitarist for The Old 97's and band-proclaimed "face man,...
