    Avril Lavigne - The Best Damn Thing (RCA)

    Those who think that pop music junkies represent music fandom's lowest common denominator should read the comments left on iTunes about Avril Lavigne's cheerleader-chant-from-hell single "Girlfriend." Namely, this astute one: "The Avril I looked up t...

    Prodigy - Return of the Mac (Koch)

    It's not strange that Prodigy's second solo release, Return of the Mac, is a gritty, New York-centric quest to maintain order in an increasingly hip-pop driven world. What is surprising is that, after his group, Mobb Deep, signed on with 50 Cent's cr...

    Dinosaur Jr. - Beyond (Fat Possum)

    Forget the Foo Fighters the true champ when it comes to blending melody and mayhem is a tumultuous trio known as Dinosaur Jr. These art-rock heroes were making heads bop and torsos flail back when Dave Grohl was still taking his cues from Kurt Coba...

    Chevy Spring Fest with Trick Daddy & Rick Ross

    We all know that when people think Chevy, the musical genre that leaps to mind is hardcore rap? Yes, it seems our favorite macho auto company is undergoing what the pros call a little brand alteration. Gone is the down-home, redneck appeal. These da...

    Dyslexic Postcards

    Dyslexic Postcards are a little bit roots punk, a little bit Pink Floyd, and a lotta Spacemen 3. But mostly the quintet is way overdue to release a CD, so catch 'em at Churchills while it's cheap. "Right now we have nothing for sale but our asses,...

    Soulphonics

    With machines replacing instruments and songs manufactured on an assembly line, it's hard to find the soul in music nowadays. But there was a time when bands boomed with rich brass, and singers gained notoriety for their talent without having to comp...

    Midnight Glimpse: Casa Casuarina

    Every day people stroll past Casa Casuarina (1116 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach; 305-672-6604), the former home of slain designer Gianni Versace, and wonder what lies beyond the iron gates and white facade of what is now an exclusive club, spa, and hotel. On...

    Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakthrough - As leader of Tango Conspiracy, and a producer in her own right, Jimena Fama is making her play for fame

    Jimena Fama, the elegant frontwoman for the electronic fusion band Tango Conspiracy, can call her ensemble of male musicians to task with a quick dart of her piercing brown eyes. But once in a while, the quiet intensity becomes too much. There was, f...

    Youth Shall Be Served - The barely legal members of Orlando's Band Marino are already making pop music for the ages

    It felt like deja vu all over again when I first heard Band Marino. Weren't these the alternative folk kiddies with the Nettwerk Records deal, who sound like Bread, and were doing soundtrack work for Deadwood? Well, no, as it turns out, that's the ...

    The Killers Will Kill You - Las Vegas's premier rock group has never suffered from low self-esteem

    Back in early 2003 the Killers were just another name littered in the demo piles of A&R departments across the country. Few people in the music industry knew much about the Las Vegas-based rock group, or if it would amount to anything beyond a four-m...

    J Dilla - Ruff Draft (Stones Throw)

    A remastered reissue of an out-of-print underground hip-hop classic, Ruff Draft is the late, great J Dilla at his creative apex. It took him a week to turn the whole thing out, but that was more than enough time to unleash a maelstrom of lo-fi breakb...

    The Fall - Reformation Post T.L.C (Narmack)

    McCoy Tyner

    To say that Mr. Tyner "tickles the ivories" would be akin to suggesting that his old bandmate John Coltrane "toodles the horn a bit." Not just a massive understatement, in other words, but an outright mischaracterization. In fact, Tyner pounds the ke...
