    Static

    Raves and wave-offs... Believe it or not, most critics would rather sing a band's praises than tear its work apart -- and I'm no different. In general, I'm of the opinion that the less said about a lousy CD, the better, and I do my best to subscribe ...

    Twang of the 'Burbs - Jack Ingram isn't a real rebel, but he plays one on CD

    Much has been made of Jack Ingram's affiliation with roots-rock outlaw Steve Earle, and, needless to say, it's done wonders for Ingram's credibility. Prior to the release of his major-label debut Livin' or Dyin' -- a CD co-produced by Earle -- the 27...

    At a time when the life span of musical trends has shrunk to almost nothing, ska-punk's time may be running out. If the pattern continues, the extended party that is ska-punk could soon find itself facing a lot of revelers looking for a bash elsewher...

    Lab Work

    The typical Stereolab tune goes something like this: two chords, a tick-a tick-a metronomic beat, a couple of buzzing analog synths and Laetitia Sadier's voice delivering a sugary melody in an often indecipherable mix of French and English. It's an i...

    Widespread Tactics

    Early in their career, Widespread Panic were tagged as a poor-man's Allman Brothers Band, dismissed as a group with an obvious talent for jamming but one lacking the memorable songs needed to make a lasting impact. But recent events have conspired to...

    Young and Hungry

    It's dusk on a Wednesday night, and Lil' KeKe and his entourage have sequestered themselves in the Jam Down Entertainment studios on Telephone Road with a bounty of fast food from a local joint known as Spanky's. Primary on the Houston rapper's mind ...

    The Wizard of Weird - After two decades of oddity, Beans Barton still has a lock on the inexplicable

    Though it may be true that all the world is a stage, Dale Barton doesn't particularly come across as someone whose universe revolves around performing on it. Or at least that appears to be the case on this muggy late-October morning, as the T-shirt- ...

    Too Much Genius

    A few weeks ago, VH-1 aired a documentary on the making of some Fleetwood Mac release -- either Rumours or Tusk, it hardly matters which. Lindsey Buckingham sat behind a console, fiddling with knobs and dials until he managed to separate out each pie...
