    Think of Swedish music, and it's usually ridonkulously catchy pop artists like ABBA, Roxette and Robyn that come to mind, not bonecrushing death metal, right? Yes, but... turns out in Europe's land of the midnight sun, death metal is no longer the ...

    Aftermath: George Michael at Toyota Center

    Photos by Chris Gray. Note: they made me stand way, way back at the soundboard so all I could take were these freaky sci-fi shots. Some of them turned out pretty cool. On his first U.S. tour in close to 20 years, George Michael's 25 Live Tour sto...

    Tonight: George Michael at Toyota Center

    Unfortunately (but not surprisingly), Sony BMG is a little stingy with their YouTube rights, which means you have to click away, click away, if you want to watch any of George's official videos like "Faith," "I Want Your Sex," the bathroom-set, LAPD-...

    Any time we got into trouble as a kid, we called our Uncle Rick. If the bully up the street took our bike, he got it back. If the schmuck bus driver made fun of our sweet rat-tail, Rick made him apologize. He was like a large, ill-tempered, sporadic...

    Xiu Xiu

    While major-label bands can always look forward to the career-spanning greatest-hits cash-in, bands that labor in the upper limits of indie-dom have their own brass ring to reach for: the remix album. Emo/art-rock band Xiu Xiu was so honored with l...

    Wale Introduces Seinfeld to Hip-Hop Culture - Yada Yada Rap

    On Untitled, Nas is clearly hoping that, by name-dropping big issues (reparations, single motherhood, media control) and dazzling you with his acrobatic flow ("I'm over they heads / Like a bulimic on a see-saw"), you'll gloss over the fact that he's...
