    Real Deal

    These days, it's passe for a rap act to refer to its sound and philosophy as "keepin' it real." From the moment that abominable phrase was conceived, it had already played itself out, making the whole concept of truth in hip-hop seem somehow untruthf...

    Dirty But Honest

    Not a lot of bands have gone broke underestimating the listening public, but plenty stay broke by aiming too high. In between, there's a gray area where certain groups are able to maintain a mildly profitable fan base and reap critical acclaim. ...

    As a kid, she trained hard in tap-dancing and ballet. At 16, she graduated from high school more than a year early. She writes and produces most of her songs, and she's already been hit on by Warren Beatty. Nubile, petite and impossibly lean, Mya is ...

    The Romance of the One-Night Stand - Semisonic makes love songs out of booze and cheap hotel rooms

    Rock and roll has a long tradition of alcohol-basted love songs, but few are laced with the daredevil optimism of Semisonic's "Closing Time." Normally, contemplating a long-term relationship after your tenth Tecate seems a bad idea. Dan Wilson, ...

    Hill Country

    According to country music's critics, ever since Billy Ray Cyrus broke through in the early '90s, looks are more important than talent. Indeed, from most perspectives, Nashville these days seems to be swarming with hatted hunks and model-perfect babe...
