    MGMT, Yeasayer

    If LCD Soundsystem is the Sound of Silver, then MGMT strikes solid gold. Essentially the duo of former art students Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden, MGMT's disco-glam combines the Bee Gees' Saturday Night Fever with David Bowie's futuristic v...

    Foo Fighters

    Foo Fighters have been many things to many people over their 14-year career. Everyone knows their history: beginning as Dave Grohl's studio project (1995's Foo Fighters), becoming modern rock's last bastion of hope (1997's The Colour and the Shape) ...

    Turtle Island Quartet

    San Francisco's Turtle Island Quartet looks like any other well-scrubbed chamber ensemble, with one crucial difference: Onstage, the group can improvise like seasoned Blue Note veterans. Since forming in 1985, TIQ -- violinist/founder David Balakri...

    Chuck Prophet

    Lately, former Green on Red guitar hero Chuck Prophet has been getting as many props for his producing talents as his own music. That's both good and bad. Prophet, lately working on a new album with Alejandro Escovedo, produced Kelly Willis's Transl...

    Secret Saturday Shows at The Shady Tavern - Rocking the afternoon away

    If it seems that Racket, whether penned by Chris Gray or me, has all too often been a depressing read, that's because lately there has been a mess of bad news to report. Last week's closure of the Proletariat was just the wilted cherry on top of a r...

    Miles Davis - The Complete On the Corner Sessions

    Hoping to capture the imaginations of young African-Americans who were breaking sweats to James Brown and Sly & the Family Stone, Miles Davis intended 1972's On the Corner to be his commercial breakthrough. How odd, then, that it turned out to be on...

    MySpaced Out - Our social-network scout sizes up some all-female Scandinavian bands

    Almost from the first chords of the American garage-rock scene, the vodka-fueled Nordic countries have been fertile ground for rocking female bands. Restless girls from the north country -- Finland's Cimmats (1963), the Dandy Girls (Norway, 1964), t...
