    Well Aware

    Think of Aware Records as the little label that could. For better or for worse, the Chicago-based imprint -- with brief histories in Boston, Vail, Colorado, and Dallas -- is partly responsible for launching the careers of several of modern rock's mos...

    All That Glitters - Now that the hype is over, the Crystal Method just wants you to listen

    It's safe to say that the Crystal Method's Scott Kirkland isn't losing a wink of sleep over electronica's soggy commercial performance in 1997. The same goes for its questionable chart prospects in '98, not to mention the genre's relative fall from f...

    Quadruple Weird - "Experimental" doesn't quite describe Flaming Lips' Zaireeka

    The flustered clerk stood there with slack-jawed confusion, as if someone had just asked him whether he could mow the linoleum in the store. "You mean, you're supposed to play them all at the same time?" he asked, still not fully grasping the co...

    Into the Folds

    In the Barry Levinson film Diner, one of the characters insists that his fiancee pass a quiz on pro football before he'll marry her. If your thing is music rather than sports, Ben Folds Five might just be the band for a similar prenuptial litmus test...

    Jazzed - After years of groundbreaking music, Pat Metheny is looking for more barriers to shatter

    Pat Metheny is a unique jazz entity. He doesn't identify with the retro-jazz purist movement, nor is he a smooth jazz or hard-core fusion commodity. His music is rarely played on jazz stations, contemporary or traditional. "We don't fit anywhere...
