    Out Here - Marchel Ivery

    The Get Up Kids

    The Get Up Kids The lyrics to "Red Letter Day," off The Get Up Kids' just-released sophomore album Something to Write Home About, don't stand out from the rest of the songs on the disc. The song seems to tell the story of yet another broken heart,...

    Waylon Jennings

    Waylon Jennings It's ironic how country music, once a realm where the adage "respect your elders" was all but religious law, has become so negligent of its aging Great Men. Even the youth-obsessed rock and pop game doesn't urge its elders out to p...

    Pet Shop Boys

    Pet Shop Boys "The music's blandness is part of the quite well-executed concept: articulating the ambivalent romanticism, immodest hopes, and not-so-quiet desperation behind the suburban faade of the people who create Smash Hits pop, and maybe co...

    'Sunday Morning,' coming up - Kris Kristofferson has lived a dozen lifetimes, and they keep on coming

    Trying to capture Kris Kristofferson's life in a 2,000-word story is like trying to offer up the whole of the Atlantic Ocean in a teaspoon. Even now, at the age of 63, the man himself is astonished by what he has done, by whom he has known, by what h...

    Chick magnet - Don't ask Ani DiFranco about her business

    Most of Ani DiFranco's sentences don't end so much as they drift away, sometimes bumping into another thought, usually plunging the conversation into uncomfortable silence, the kind of quiet that comes when two former friends run into each other for ...

    You Beta, you bet - The elusive Beta Band turns cuckoo clocks and laser gunshots into definition-dodging sounds that -- somehow -- make perfect sense

    The Beta Band fits approximately nowhere. Signed to a label known for spearheading the pop-electronica invasion in America, the band's records feature nary a danceable track. Although the group's music bears some resemblance to the hip-hop folk of Be...

    Los Lobos
