    Zaftig Beats

    Delano security is acting a bit nervous. It's a beautiful afternoon in the hotel's artfully sculpted grassy back yard, but today's lounging guests look very different from the usual run of schmoozing businessmen, high-rolling European tourists, and H...

    Clean and Sober Psychedelia

    Wayne Coyne is no madman. Julian Cope may have fried his brain and come out the other side barely intact, but Coyne (rock's other modern-day psychedelic warrior) makes it a point to soberly lead the Flaming Lips into the studio playground to tweak an...

    Method Men

    The Beta Band fits approximately nowhere. Signed to a label known for spearheading the pop-electronica invasion in America, the band's records feature nary a danceable track. Beta's music bears some resemblance to the hip-hop folk of Beck, but the gr...

    Sworn to the Drum

    Percussionist Francisco Aguabella is emphatic when asked whether anyone else can perform the types of rhythms he has been playing since he came to the United States from Cuba in 1957. "No," he says in his heavy Cuban accent, "nobody else can play the...

    Brian's Kids

    The sophomore slump is a popular phenomenon in modern music. A band's debut release does well; the next album falls short of expectations as the group stumbles to re-create the magic that brought fans into its realm in the first place. Maybe this lac...

    Salsa Hard and Fast

    On one typically addictive track of trombonist Jimmy Bosch's upcoming album, piano and brass embrace like an inspired couple on the dance floor, shimmying together then breaking apart for some saucy solo moves. Congas keep the rhythm, and a male chor...

    One Nation Under a Groove

    In California a crowd of 10,000 shakes the Santa Monica Pier for the last free concert of the summer. High school kids, industry types, the homeless, cholos, black, white, and brown all make elbow war for room to dance. Ozomatli pounds its sound out ...

    Boy Wonder

    At a recent well-attended reading, a fan asks writer Nick Hornby about the influence of music on his work, asserting maybe a bit too strongly that his personal soundtrack directly influenced the text. Hornby steers the question a bit, answering it, b...

    The Once and Future King

    In the summer of 1953, a shy Memphis teenager steals up enough courage to go into a local recording studio, pays eight dollars and twenty-five cents, and, accompanied only by his rudimentary guitar playing, cuts two ballads: the pop standard "My Happ...
