    The Cantrells - Saturday, January 17; The Focal Point

    What could be simpler? Two voices, a guitar, a fiddle, sometimes a mandolin, blending on songs that belong to all of us, even if we've never heard them before. What could be more mysterious? The Cantrells play folk music, but don't let that scare you...

    Patrice Pike - Friday, January 16; Off Broadway

    There is no record of Patrice Pike having to lift up a boiling cauldron of water and hot coals with her forearms, branding the symbol of an ancient musical order on her wrists as she earned her chops. Other than that, Pike's path to music pretty much...

    Follow Your Noise - Abstract rockers Yowie put the math in math rock

    "Every day, I wake up in the morning and put on [Slayer's] Reign in Blood. [It] gets me through the day," professes Shawn O'Connor, drummer for St. Louis' heroes of rhythmic bewilderment, Yowie. You wouldn't think Slayer to be a part of O'Connor's d...

    Bitter Truths - Gary Stewart saw the truth in the bottom of a glass, and it killed him

    It's not that you won't hear a good ol' honky-tonk drinking song on country radio these days, but there's a world of difference between "Beer for My Horses" and "Sittin' and Thinkin'" or between "Ten Rounds with Jose Cuervo" and "There Stands the Gla...

    Get Along, Doggies! - It's time for a local CD roundup

    I'm a big believer in New Year's resolutions, mostly because I'm also a big believer in having no sense of personal restraint between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. January is the nonbeliever's Lent, a time of penance and sacrifice for our multitud...

    Lungfish - Love Is Love (Dischord)

    By title alone, you might blindly assume that Love Is Love is a sappy pop record, replete with mushy imagery and bubblegum production. And your assumption would generally be correct, if this weren't a Lungfish album. No foggy car windows or boxes of ...

    The Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime (Sire)

    The Talking Heads boxed set is the ugliest thing you'll see in a music store this holiday season -- save for the clerks. Housed in a long, awkward rectangle and bearing a painting of odd-looking naked humans in a grotesquely kitsch Edenic landscape, ...

    Plaid - Spokes (Warp)

    If you've ever poked your head in the IDM romper room, the first thing you probably noticed were the petulant children -- Autechre, Squarepusher, Aphex Twin -- demanding attention, throwing Ritalin-deprived tantrums with their fractured, glitchy loga...

    Westside Connection - Terrorist Threat (Priority)

    It's hard to believe that Ice Cube is only 34 years old. He's been shaping the culture for nearly half his life, ever since N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton dropped in 1988. That album filled the FBI and white adults full of fear at the same time it e...

    Underworld - 1992-2002 (V2)

    Formed in 1989, Underworld proved that galloping rhythms, pulsating techno beats, chiming melodies and vocalist Karl Hyde's stream-of-consciousness, borderline nonsensical words could add up to a lot more than just a mindless, faceless dance number. ...

    Billy Bragg - Must I Paint You a Picture? The Essential Billy Bragg (Rhino)

    Billy Bragg's slashing stridency and plain old passion seem like an ideal pill for fearful and politically frustrating times such as these. In the early 1980s, with his lonely Stratocaster and sometimes guileless Cockney wobble, the British neo-folki...

    Story of the Year - Friday, January 9; Pageant

    These local emo-rockers, recently signed to Maverick, don't look like teenagers, but their music is as adolescent as stiff sheets and braces. This doesn't mean that Story of the Year is juvenile or unskilled -- the band's stuttering, shiny sound is a...

    Julia Sets - Wednesday, January 7, 14, 21 and 28; Frederick's Music Lounge

    Your soul is dirty; a viscous layer of digital scum clings to it like nasty petroleum-jelly fudge. You feel it accreting every time you watch MTV or pirate songs with your state-of-the-art computer. This caulk of slick materialism insulates you from ...

    Big Smith - Friday, January 9; Mississippi Nights

    Springfield, Missouri, which lies 30 minutes from the country-music Mecca/Hell of Branson, isn't exactly known as a Jamaica-level hotbed of musical beauty; it somehow manages to get outshone by its smaller, Andy Williams-sheltering neighbor. In fact,...

    '03, Oh My! - Our critics weigh in on a questionable year's best music

    Editor's note: A correction ran concerning this story; see end of article. As 2003 dies out, the year isn't suggesting any easy epitaphs for itself. Trends continued -- another Strokes album, another Britney Spears debacle, etc. Trends died out -- ...

    Remembrances of Things Pop - Radar Station looks back at Bryan Adams and lesbian chic

    Well, here we are: one year closer to death! A.D. 2003 is hooked to a respirator, rejecting solid foods and waiting for Dick Clark to pull the plug. In case you've been in a cave since January 1, we've dedicated this issue to the best of what you've ...

    On the Rise - Monday, January 5; Creepy Crawl

    What is hardcore? Is it tattoos? Hoarse vocals? Male bonding? Or is it just massive amounts of ass-kicking distilled into musical form? On the Rise would have to pick that last one. With kinda-sorta members of Agnostic Front and Maximum Penalty a...
