    Look Again - Rainer Maria looks for A Better Version of Me and something that rhymes with "anathema"

    Caithlin De Marrais is afraid she sounds like a dork. "You know how MTV has those shows that have little snippets of other music in it?" she sheepishly asks on the phone from her home in Connecticut. "Just recently, a song from our new album was on d...

    Here I Am Again - Loretta Lynn is Still Country, and still woman enough for you

    Years before Loretta Lynn finally signed with Audium/Koch and began recording Still Country, her first album in more than a decade, a series of personal tragedies had left her reeling. First, her son Jack drowned. Then her husband of almost 50 years,...

    Scene, Heard - Don't put Trees in a pine box just yet.

    Is it fun to point fingers? Abso-freaking-lutely. Is it right? Depends on who you ask. Is it a waste of time? Usually. So, while we have a fairly good idea of where the Trees-is-dead rumors started, we won't name names. For a change. And yes, in case...

    Mirwais - Production (Epic Records)

    Long after the revolution became the soundtrack to commerce, "techno"--or whatever name one wants to give to noise made by man and his machines--remains the misunderstood music; what's bleep-bleep-bleep to others is still blah-blah-blah to most. Even...

    Jake Mandell - Love Songs For Machines (Carpark)

    It's perhaps the ultimate dilemma in art--once you successfully shake off the contrasts of your genre, effectively moving into the great unknown of the "avant-garde," what the hell do you do next? If you continue to produce work that conforms to some...

    Be Here Now - The And/Ors don't need a past as long as they have a future

    Forget Zen--you don't have to engage in obtuse intellectual gymnastics or wrestle with metaphysical riddles to be perfectly at ease with being in the now. Just ask Daniel Black, lead singer and guitarist for San Diego-based quartet The And/Ors. On th...

    Southern Comfort - The Gossip returns to the land of Dollar Store culture

    The Gossip has only one motivator when it comes to playing music: "We want you to dance. If you come to our show and you don't, you should have stayed at home." Any fame or notoriety the Searcy, Arkansas-born and Olympia, Washington-based trio gains ...

    Scene, Heard - Band-related paper cuts and other ironies.

    Here's the funny strange/funny haha moment of the week: As we began to work on this week's column (read: woke up with our face on our keyboard and grabbed the nearest stack of papers in a clumsy and transparent attempt to look busy) we got a paper cu...

    Geoff Farina - Reverse Eclipse Southern

    On his new solo album, Karate frontman Geoff Farina asks the question burning heart-shaped holes in a hundred thousand indie-rockers' ironically T-shirted chests: Can you rock without rocking? A good question, but I like his answer better: "Um, well,...

    Clumsy - Center of Attention Deficit Disorder (Idol Records)

    The curse of the fetishistic rock fan is that one can never listen to something new without reflecting upon how it sounds so much like something old. The thrill of the discovery is shoved aside by the ache of stumbling, once more, across the fetid an...

    Out & About - Kid Rock

    After conquering America by selling more than 7 million copies of 1998's Devil Without a Cause, the only question that remains about 30-year-old Detroit native Robert James Ritchie--that's Kid Rock to you and me, and Bob to his pal Carson Daly--is no...

    Out & About - Tim Easton

    The only thing that attracts rock critics' attention more than the promise of a free meal is an album by an unknown that comes fully stocked with Big Names From Other Bands; it's a sure-fire promotional gimmick, the guarantee of coverage from folks w...

    Out & About - Wesley Willis

    This Valentine's Day is the one in which you're really going to impress that special someone in your life. You've been, you know, kind of dating, but you're not quite sure what the situation is between you two. Some unexpected but very welcome kisses...

    Out & About - Haymarket Riot

    Labor agitation doesn't seem to end up in rioting, disturbing the peace, and threatening the security of the state the way it used to. Which is a shame really. The advent of the National Labor Relations Board and negotiations have taken the place of ...

    Maybe Baby? - Buddy Holly raves on, four decades after he received a second chance

    The man looks younger than his 64 years, sure, but not much. His hair is whiter now than the black-brown it used to be, and grandfatherly wire frames holding thick, bifocal lenses have replaced his signature black-framed glasses. It's more a look in ...

    Garageland - Do What You Want (Foodchain)

    The Diagram - How to reinvent rock and roll with Drums & Tuba...and guitar

    Let's face it--the tuba isn't exactly a sexy instrument. When one thinks tuba, among the images generated are: polka, old men (detail: old men wearing black knee-high socks and bad plaid shorts), and flabby, elongated cheeks. Just how the New York-ba...

    Out & About - The Lapse

    Speaking generally for a sec, I don't like singers who talk instead of sing. That's why hip-hop (well, besides Ol' Dirty Bastard and Biz Markie) took a while for me: no singing, just talking. Or rhyming. Or whatever. (To clear my name, I have of cour...

    Scene, Heard - Another drummer steps to the mike

    For every Chris Mars or Will Johnson and Centro-matic, there's a Phil Collins. Or Don Henley. Or, God forbid, Tommy Lee and his rapping penis. Guess what we're saying is when a drummer decides to step up to the mike, the results are, at best, mixed. ...
