    Luscious Noise - The beat happy women of Luscious Jackson find a mellower groove

    A Van for All Seasons - Van Morrison's getting older, grouchier and, with his latest CD, better again

    The news that there's a new Van Morrison CD out should be thrilling. But for some of us, there have been so many Morrison discs in the last year alone that it's a bit anticlimactic. Of course, it's a terrible thing to complain about too many Van...

    Sound Check

    Kids music of one form or another has been around pretty much as long as kids have. You've got your nursery tunes (London Bridge may now be in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, but it's still falling down, and that itsy bitsy spider will probably never make...

    Best intentions... Jake Van Mater is a man with a mission. It's just that, at the moment, he's not exactly sure what that mission is. Aside from being the brains behind the Houston rock trio Black Spot, Van Mater is a do-gooder with grand intentions....

    Still King

    In the sleepy Mississippi Delta towns of Indianola and Itta Bena, near where the blues was born, the cafes serve a regional specialty called a floating cheeseburger. It seems like a simple thing -- just a cheeseburger buried in a bowl of chili -- but...

    Odd Man Out - Van Dyke Parks, the invisible legend of L.A. music, finally goes live

    Van Dyke Parks does not talk. He speaks, pronounces, proclaims, mumbles and grumbles, chuckles and chortles. But he does not simply talk to waste his words; every syllable has meaning, every breath great implication, every silence great weight. Weari...

    The Reason of Rimes - LeAnn Rimes has taken country music by storm. She's only 14. And that's the rub.

    It was a Saturday night at Billy Bob's in Dallas, and the cavernous honky-tonk -- so big that the beer lights seem to follow the curvature of the globe as they disappear into the blue smoke -- was alive with ritual: girls in tight jeans eyeing guys i...

    Shiny Happy People? - Sweden's Cardigans aren't as warm and fuzzy as they let on

    On the surface, Sweden is a land of crystal lakes, rolling rivers and snowcapped mountains, with lots of happy blond people enjoying the country's famed social welfare system. But it's also a nation perilously deprived of sunlight much of the year, w...

    They're the Queers, They're Here

    If you'd already heard of the Queers before last year's Don't Back Down, you're probably the sort of Mohawked, ultra-into-punk punk who's already written the band off as a commercial sellout. If Don't Back Down was your first exposure, you're probabl...

    A Feel for the Real

    There was a time, about 60 years ago, when jazz was thought of as simply, well, jazz. Smooth, hard, swinging or jagged, it was all music you danced to. But in the mid-'40s, a small group of performers, spearheaded by Charlie "Yardbird" Parker, began ...
