    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

    It's not every day a rapper pays tribute to his favorite sitcom with an entire mixtape devoted to the show. Isn't that honor usually reserved for movies like Scarface or American Gangster? It's even more unusual when said rapper's favorite sitcom is ...

    Nas: Untitled

    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...
