    Remaking Michael - Why waste money (or steal) those bogus Thriller remixes when you can get better Michael Jackson reinventions legally -- for free? Plus, the history of the classic Harlem Globetrotters song "Sweet Georgia Brown."

    John Henry & the Engine - Under the Yellow Moon (Home Tone Records)

    On Under the Yellow Moon, it's unclear if John Henry & the Engine send us their greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey, or Columbia, Missouri. The quartet is so steeped in Springsteenisms -- piano-led epics, small-town heartbreaks and a heavy relian...

    If there is in fact a fine line between genius and madness, Dan Deacon takes that line, bellows distorted nonsensical lyrics and dances back and forth across it. While critics and hipsters fawned over Deacon's dense, absurdist style of electronica l...
