    Peter Salett - Heart of Mine (Dusty Shoes Music)

    The title track of this nifty debut platter is a nearly perfect love song: heartfelt enough to sell you on the yearning but catchy enough to transcend the dead zone of schmaltz. Credit Salett's knack as an arranger. He knows that the best way to show...

    Most Deft - Jurassic 5 improves hip-hop through thought, word, and deed

    What if a miracle happened and rap suddenly replaced stupid self-aggrandizement with progressive politics of inclusion and unity? Give praise, for that has finally happened. The party line touted by L.A.'s Jurassic 5 is free of the standard hip-hop t...

    Bandwidth - Clematis Street under siege

    Laura Satterfield - Dirty Velvet Lie (Triloka)

    I'm always glad to make the acquaintance of a woman singer not afraid to moan. And by moan, I don't mean the Britney Spears variety of moan, which is essentially a crass imitation of sexuality produced for a record label. I mean the noise produced sp...

    Nashville Pussy - High as Hell (TVT Records)

    Anyone who thinks the Confederate flag is better suited for burning than waving better tiptoe around Nashville Pussy's latest disc like a Sturgis preacher on Labor Day weekend. Yet for all of its sinfully contrived bombast, High as Hell shouldn't pro...

    Sinad O'Connor - Faith and Courage (Atlantic)

    Odd as it may seem, coming from a woman who once ripped up a photo of the Pope on national television, Sinad O'Connor's declaration of faith, "Everything in this world would be OK/If people just believed in God enough to pray," (on "The Lamb's Book ...

    Scalp It, Scalp It Good - Devo conspirator Gerald V. Casale waxes cynical about the old days and a new retrospective

    Bandwidth - Support mom, pop, and your local independent record store

    Spin City: It's sad, but this very newspaper had the poor judgment to name Best Buy as the best place to buy CDs in Broward and Palm Beach. (Why dontcha just go shoot Mom and Pop in the head, huh?) We all know that saving a few bucks on that new Shan...

    Royal Trux - Pound For Pound (Drag City)

    Royal Trux struggles with a rep as clumsy, junkie noise merchants, developed during its early days a decade ago. It hit the world with a one-two punch of records that were both very difficult but in very different ways and thus frightened away most w...

    Admiral Twin - Mock Heroic (Mojo Records)

    Pop is quietly making a comeback. Who woulda thunk it? With ballyhooed new platters from the likes of Aimee Mann, Michael Penn, and Josh Rouse, pop bands are no longer feeling obliged to make sure they include elements of country/folk/roots-rock/hip-...

    Lucy Pearl - Lucy Pearl (Pookie/Beyond)

    In 1999 Tony! Toni! Ton! cofounder Raphael Saadiq tapped former En Voguer Dawn Robinson and A Tribe Called Quest's beatmeister Ali Shaheed Muhammad to form the neosoul collective Lucy Pearl. With these credentials you'd expect something life-changin...

    rinrse - Installation Sonore (V2)

    Ian Astbury - Spirit\Light\Speed (Beggars Banquet)

    Whether it's the result of a karmic quirk or of nostalgic indulgence on the part of rock fans, there's no denying that Ian Astbury's career suddenly and almost inexplicably has more legs than a Catholic girls' school. A founding member of the Cult, ...

    Chris Smither - Live as I'll Ever Be (Hightone)

    Chris Smither is about as unassuming a songwriter as you're likely to find. Over the past two decades, he's quietly released a dozen records and toured consistently without so much as a brush with big-time fame. Live as I'll Ever Be isn't likely to c...

    The Art of Noise - Noise artiste Kenny 5 wreaks musical havoc

    Strictly speaking this is a story not about music but about noise. It is also the tale of a fairly young performance artist in Lake Worth named Kenny 5 who creates noise -- and sometimes by mere coincidence, music -- on a variety of self-invented ins...

    Spring Heel Jack - Treader Oddities (Thirsty Ear)

    Whereas most drum 'n' bass acts are identifiable by a signature sound (Goldie, LTJ Bukem, and the like), Spring Heel Jack doesn't really have one, which makes its music all the more interesting. The duo's inventiveness may be a result of pedigree: Wh...
