    Lush - Ciao! Best of... (4AD Records)

    Lush lasted much longer than anyone expected it to, what with the one-trick-pony nature of its guitar-driven sound. Any way you cut it, seven years was far too long a musical life span for a group that had such an incredible diminishing return on qua...

    Critic's Pick - Kool Keith

    The strange antics of Keith Thornton -- the rapper alternatively known as Kool Keith, Dr. Dooom, or Dr. Octagon -- began well before his pioneering work with Brooklyn's Ultramagnetic MCs. His unpredictable, often psychotic wordplay is obviously infor...

    Female Problems - TheStart adds a dose of estrogen to the nu-metal sweepstakes

    Funk-rock women in love often run afoul of an uncomfortable truth: Grrrrs and purrs don't mix. "It's hard to be a girl in a rock band and to write a true love song, as opposed to an angry-love-bitch song," admits theStart vocalist Aimee Echo. Yet on...

    Rebecca Gates - Ruby Series (Badman Recording Co.)

    In 1997 Rebecca Gates became the sole Spinane when long-time musical partner Scott Plouf took the drum stool with Built to Spill -- leaving Gates to craft the masterful Arches and Aisles (the band's epitaph) alone. After Gates's subsequent move to Ch...

    The Stone Coyotes - Born to Howl (Red Cat Records)

    The world of rock 'n' roll perfected a ruthless form of ageism long before the practice became the bane of the rest of America's workplaces. This rule of arthritic thumb dictates that once you've moved on from Clearasil to Monoxodil, you're expected ...

    Rufus Wainwright - Poses (DreamWorks Records)

    Often the best pop music requires a compromise from the listener. Bob Dylan's coyote howl may grate like sandpaper, but tremendous rewards await any who approaches his early recordings with an open mind. And so it is with singer-songwriter Rufus Wain...

    Critic's Pick - Stuck on Evil

    A Real Corker - Dues paid, the punk stalwarts of Corky have come up in the world

    Jose Flores, Corky's southpaw singer-guitarist and Freddie Prinze Jr. look-alike, sizes up the rabid pack of 100 twentysomethings inhabiting Churchill's in Miami's Little Haiti on a steamy Friday night. "Tonight someone asked us what our mission was,...

    Critic's Pick - Steve Earle and the Dukes

    Steve Earle has beaten so many demons (the bottle, heroin addiction, bad marriages, worse managers) that seeing him emerge as country music's poet laureate is not at all surprising; he's a man of conscience and truth who's not afraid to put his neck ...

    Bandwidth - Fur flies when two SoFla bands implode, and it's music to nobody's ears

    Do you like change? Change is good! Some say it comes only from within. I had some in my pants pocket once. But this latest upheaval has left two of the area's best-known alternative acts irrevocably altered. Disconnect, which boasts members from Mia...

    Critter Comforts - Italian DJ duo Racoon is tuned for maximum chillage

    Against the shadow of a day's stubble, a half-inch of gravity-defying ash hangs from a wrinkled Marlboro at the corner of the DJ's mouth. A look of intense concentration crosses the face of Corrado Bay (Corrado Bailone) as he studies his turntables a...

    Critic's Pick - Chris Chandler

    For a region crying out for folk music that hasn't been dumbed down to the lowest common Dylan cover, the departure of Chris Chandler was disastrous. The witty, erudite, nose-thumbing strummer forsook South Florida in January, moving to Seattle and t...

    Guided by Voices - Isolation Drills (TVT Records)

    Back when Robert Pollard's liver was pinker, Guided by Budweiser earned its cult stripes with a simple and foolproof formula: lo-fi, anthem-baiting sketches that recalled midperiod Beatles/Who, sported intentionally vague lyrics, and rarely exceeded ...

    Gorillaz - Gorillaz (Virgin Records)

    Tindersticks - Can Our Love... (Beggars Banquet)

    In reaction to the social mores that marked Victorian England, the British demimonde found a way to take the starch out of its collars by perfecting the confessional smut novel. Sure, France likes to believe that its raunch is saucier, but the French...
