Game, Dames, and Guitar Thangs

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Late Funkadelic legend Hazel’s lone solo album was recorded in 1977 for Warner Brothers shortly after he got out of Lompoc prison (for a drug-induced freakout during an airline flight). In a sense, it’s a P-Funk record in all but name; despite Hazel having left the Clinton compound in...

Gold Medal

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Let’s face it: Chicks with guitars are a dime a dozen these days and finding the right combination of rock ’n’ roll bombast and high school hip-sway can be as arduous as looking for water on even the hottest of Sahara nights. That said, fleshy California cuties the Donnas...

The Elevations

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM

To watch the Elevations live is to see some bizarro-world version of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Except instead of bringing historic legends like Napoleon and Socrates into the now, the Elevations have plucked out the very best in a long line of faceless Motown performers to show tight-assed...

Guilty Pleasures

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Industrial music isn’t all PVC and zipper masks. Sure, the genre’s dangerous. It’ll cut out your kidneys, wrap you in plastic and ship your straight-laced ass off to Real Sex #38. But if its more extreme elements are cut with equal parts danceability and rock ’n’ roll, industrial can...

The Grind Date

Posted By on Wed, Nov 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM

The Grind Date, by De La Soul. Brought to you by three dudes who have been chronically normal for 16 years. Hear De La as they abandon their penchant for concept albums. This is a party record. You’ll dance to it. Happily. It’ll renew your faith in hip hop’s...

MTV2 Presents (Short-list) 2004 Nominees

The Shortlist Music Prize has been awarding groups of cool-people approved cool people since 2001. Each year the event’s organizers tap a cross-section of the usual suspects — Beck, Mos Def, Waits, ?Uestlove — to nominate their musical faves, the only stipulation being a cap on total units sold....

The Tigers Have Spoken

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2004 at 12:00 AM

A live album that clocks in at a little more than a half hour? Dude, where’s my copy of Frampton Comes Alive? But even before opening cut “If You Knew” has finished unspooling its twangy luminosity, you get the feeling that this’ll be a filler-free affair. Country queen Case...

The New Danger

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Let’s play football, and Mos Def’s sophomore album, The New Danger, is an 18-game season. There’s a new team, Geffen Records, a new starting lineup, rock band Black Jack Johnson, and a new playbook involving live instruments. Fans of Mos the B-boy, prepare to adjust. This is an organic...

Futures

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Nebulous since its late ’80s genesis, emo had most recently evolved into a sad guy poetry slam reserved exclusively for the pop-punk/post-hardcore set. Bands with three-tiered names poured lyrical anguish all over strident power chords, and grownups just didn’t get it. Jimmy Eat World tries to have it both...

Da Miss Tape

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2004 at 12:00 AM

There’s got to be a bunch of furrowed-browed misogynists perched on barstools around town bent on slowing the flow of Detroit’s hip-hop distaff. Well, too bad for them that Raw Khemystery Entertainment — an all-female production house — just birthed one of rap’s hottest clap-back albums since Brooklyn’s Hip-Hop...
