    ? Owl City (really just a guy named Adam Young) is a bit of a conundrum. He's perfectly fine to listen to, as long as you pretend that his music is specifically intended for very young children, like the Wiggles or Raffi. Then you pay attent...

    Love, Shelby - Shelby Lynne smolders on Tears, Lies, and Alibis.

    Shelby Lynne has always had a reputation as one of those "problem" talents. Like Kelly Willis, she's had major-label record deals and, at times, big money behind her. But throughout a career that began with a duet with George Jones 22 years ago, Lyn...

    Invasive Exotics - Indian Jewelry continues to defy easy description on new album Totaled.

    Airing It Out - The patio is the place to be at Washington Avenue lounge Brixx.

    Minus the Bear

    On their new release, Omni, Seattle ambient rockers Minus the Bear show off a more subdued, mellow side. The band is arguably the kings of the indie chill-out jam, but with Omni the Bear goes straight for your brain's relaxation station. Every now an...

    Swim, the first record by electro-pop musician Daniel Snaith (a.k.a. Caribou) since he won the Polaris Music Prize for 2007's Andorra, is worth every penny of that $20,000 prize money. Sometime after Andorra and experimenting with his live-band Carib...

    Digable Planets, Camp Lo

    Since we're officially living in the era of "Mr. Hit Dat Hoe," mourning hip-hop appears to be an increasingly growing practice. (We shed a tear or two when we first heard that song.) Thankfully, true hip-hop heads can take in an evening of refreshing...
