    After the Breakup

    You almost could have added the debut album by Miami-cum-Gainesville's Fay Wray to the ever-growing list of legendary longplayers that have never seen the light of day. It's hardly the worst list to be on, as the company includes the scrapped or sque...

    Rude, Rude Rudy

    Robbie Gennet's piano melodies are disarming little devils. The creamy rhapsodies trickling from his keyboard sound so classically familiar, so refreshingly catchy. Those rich tones emanating from his Fender Rhodes electric piano reverberate with suc...

    Cowboy Junkies Miles from Our Home (Geffen) The seventh record by Canadian mood-music purveyors Cowboy Junkies trades folk-rock simplicity for a West Coast sound that evokes California's particular brand of sun-drenched angst and broken sou...

    Can't Silence This Monk

    Jazz is terminally ill. That most American of musical genres is in serious danger of dropping dead, struck down by an incurable condition known as apathy. No one cares about jazz any more. But you know what? Jazz has grown boring anyway. Just look at...

    When Words Aren't Enough

    The proposition was this: From the thousands of unpublished lyrics housed in the Woody Guthrie Archive in Manhattan, choose a batch of lyrics by this American icon and breathe musical life into them. Only a fool would bite. Well, English-born si...

    Pseudointellectuals Don't Get the Blues

    Evolution, blues purists believe, is for the birds. What the creators of modern blues should do, they'll tell you, is leave well enough alone. Forget about the marching hands of time. Forget about new branches of music. Forget about artistic individu...

    Rotations

    Brian Wilson Imagination (Giant) After the 1966 release of the Beach Boys' seminal Pet Sounds, anxiety and substance abuse contributed to a growing sense of inertia in Brian Wilson's life. His struggle was further complicated by his relatio...

    Zoot Up, Punk

    Rarely has it been ultimately advantageous for a band to affiliate with a suddenly hip musical movement. Cool, maybe, sometimes even financially rewarding, but not exactly good for career longevity. Witness the abrupt demise of successful Eighties bi...

    Lenny Kravitz 5 (Virgin) Poor, poor, pitiful Lenny Kravitz. He has spent the better part of the past ten years -- and five full-length albums -- carefully crafting an artistic persona that, upon close examination, amounts essentially to lit...

    Careful with That Ax, Lilith

    Meredith Brooks is livid. After a good twelve months of touring and national TV appearances, and after selling more than a million copies of blurring the edges, her 1997 debut album, Brooks has once again been mistaken for a mere rhythm guitarist by ...

    Crazy, Kreamy, and Blue

    Kreamy 'Lectric Santa was the first band I saw after moving to Miami in the fall of 1995 to work for New Times as music editor. Fittingly, they were the last band I saw before leaving in June of 1997 to move back to my hometown of Memphis. I only saw...

    Ravaged by the Rave

    "I sat in throw-up," declared a sweaty, somewhat disgusted sixteen-year-old girl who preferred not to give her name. Along with a half-dozen similar girls -- thin, wan, and dazed, yet still smiling -- she waited patiently for a stall in the suffocati...

    Come and Get Your Love

    Nowhere in the owner's manual that came with South Florida music promoter Chrystal Hartigan does it say, "She can't do that." If those words ever did appear, somebody must have torn out the page long ago. And it wouldn't be wise for anyone to scribbl...

    Jeff Buckley Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk (Columbia) Late singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley was a rarity in this cynical age, an artist who wasn't too cool to be himself. He had a yearning, confessional style and an uncommon amount of ...

    Still Can't Hear You, Buddy

    Buddy Guy has been waiting, frustrated yet determined, since the days when record stores carried only vinyl. Waiting for the day he can switch on the radio and hear his voice -- his guitar, too -- on a mainstream, big-city station. Before midnight, p...

    Ani DiFranco, Musician

    Ani DiFranco is a singer, a songwriter, and a producer, but you'd hardly know it from most of the articles that are written about her. "Music?" she squeals in mock terror in response to a question about her primary vocation. "What's that? Nobody ever...

    Could It Be ... Satan?

    Devil worshippers, they said. In their naive enthusiasm, the four Californian musicians were adamant about their devotion to that baddest of all bad boys. Maybe it was just a phase, but from Slayer's earliest incarnation, its members wanted everyone ...

    Smack My Niche Up

    Record companies love to ignite new buying trends. For decades, label execs have relied on blustery hype to spur those trends. When a musical fad begins to show signs of having exhausted its profitability, as grungy alternative rock did a year or two...
