    Murphy Lee - Murphy's Law (Universal)

    A plea for sanity: Rappers, you must shorten your albums. Yes, a CD is capable of holding over seventy minutes of music. That doesn't mean it should. The idea isn't to put every damn thing you recorded since your last album on your new one. A filler-...

    Stereolab - Instant 0 in the Universe (Elektra)

    Stereolab is a very "cool" band. Since the Franco-Anglican collective started putting out albums in 1991, they have been hailed by critics and fans alike as swinging space-age retro-pop futurists. Now, on what seems like their 9,276th release, Instan...

    Various Artists - Party Monster (TVT Records)

    The film Party Monster stars Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green as real-life mid-'90s club kids who dress funny and submerge their humanity in dancing, drugs and finally murder. The movie is both as horrible and as fun as it sounds. The soundtrack has th...

    Dashboard Confessional - A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar (Vagrant)

    It's really easy to make fun of Dashboard Confessional: the bleeding heart on the sleeve, the unreasonably handsome frontman, the painfully adolescent angst. It's all a bit cloying and laughable. And then there are the fans. Watching the diehards ...

    Plain Spoken - Saul Williams makes music out of language

    For the average person, "spoken word" is not a good thing. It evokes images of people with mics, flannel shirts, strident voices and issues with their parents (or parent-substitute, the government). No thanks. Spoken word was pitched as a trend, hype...

    The Barefoot Jungle Sound - Quiet is the new loud in hip-hop

    In the beginning, there was rhythm. Hairy hominids banging bones. Then, pokey Neanderthals discovered the handclap -- they grunted with glee -- then konked on a coconut, thumped on a stump. "Mmm. Good...beat. Dance...to...it." Early rappers rhymed ab...

    Eastern Youth with Cursive and The Blood Brothers - Friday, October 3; Mississippi Nights

    Sometimes it's better to be blissfully unaware. Take listening to music in foreign languages: Do you need to know what Serge Gainsbourg is saying to know that it's a little bit sexy and a whole lot sleazy? Do you need to know Portuguese to appreciate...

    South Side Rocks Off - Saturday, October 4; multiple venues

    Rumors are flying around behind the scenes at KDHX right now. But while the truth may be muddled about a lot of things, there are a few things that are for sure: 1. Community radio is a good thing. 2. KDHX knows how to hold a fundraiser. Tha...

    Radio Berlin - Saturday, October 4; Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center

    What the hell are rock musicians so happy about these days? Whatever happened to danceable music that makes you feel good about being gloomy? Why aren't more soundtracks for dramatic suicides being produced? Where have all the chorus pedals and synth...

    Frank Black and the Catholics - Show Me Your Tears (spinART)

    Long removed from his reputation-establishing work fronting the Pixies, Frank Black has watched his stature diminish terribly over the past ten years. While ex-bandmate Kim Deal went on to great success with her Breeders, the onetime indie-rock hero ...

    Television - Marquee Moon / Adventure (Rhino)

    Though Television emerged from the same NYC punk-rock milieu as Blondie and the Ramones, those bands often disregarded (or clearly fought against) technical proficiency. But Television was (gasp!) a Musically Accomplished Band, one that played with a...

    Thelonious Monk - Monk in Paris: Live at the Olympia (Thelonious Records)

    These days, it's a rare occurrence for an "important" record to be released. Of the six billion human beings on the planet, probably four billion are musicians after a fashion, recording and releasing all manner of sonic fluff. Since the record indus...

    Yo La Tengo - Thursday, September 25; Pageant

    With their 2000 album And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out, Yo La Tengo made the leap -- a small one, sure, and certainly not an unexpected one -- from critically acclaimed cult heroes to the elder statesband of indie rock. That's what happens i...

    Christopher O'Riley performs the music of Radiohead - Thursday, September 25; Sheldon Concert Hall

    The purpose of music is to lift the listener from one state of mind into another. By the simple act of creating sounds in patterns, musicians have the ability to induce states of mind, transporting the listener to any number of inner destinations. Un...

    Aerosmith - Sunday, September 28; UMB Pavilion

    Let's build the case right now: Aerosmith has a lot to answer for. Start with those horrible bandana-bedecked mic stands, the ones that every lame blues-metal chump imitated throughout the '80s. Move right along to their central role in the dubious f...

    Best Rock Club - Rocket Bar

    The appeal of the Rocket Bar can be summed up in six little words: "That is a damn high stage." And it's cramped, too. When Trans Am played in the spring, there was barely enough room for them to hand off instruments to one another, and there are onl...

    Best Bartender - Roxanna Ratossa Modesto

    Tangerine hasn't been the same since Roxanna Ratossa -- she of the sharp wit, sexy disposition and totally hot cigarette-stained voice -- left last year; a whole row of fawners were heartbroken. Some -- gasp! -- turned to drink and ended up sauced at...
