Good Vibrations

Posted By on Mon, May 31, 2010 at 9:49 PM

A half-day steady rain is coming to a halt as I start to write, while one of the loudest parties on Earth rolls to its conclusion. Rain only brightens a young raver's heart, especially if you were wearing water repellent-clothing or burned up the previous two sunny days inside fake...

Shocker: Modern life not rubbish

Posted By on Sun, May 30, 2010 at 11:26 PM

To say Plastikman's performance on Saturday was a supersonic meditation on what we've all become is a bit rich (pardon the pun). To call it right might be to say that it was many things. It was ambitious and spectacular, no doubt about that, a bold communication from the first...

Welcome to his nightmare

Bizarre downplays his jokey, horrorcore side with a fresh, lyrical joint

Posted By on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 12:00 AM

Whether you love or hate Bizarre, it's tough to say that the man doesn't leave a distinct impression. The Detroit emcee's deliberate delivery and dark, twisted humor made him a standout member of Eminem's group, D12, and his fans have remained loyal throughout his subsequent solo career. But in interviews...

Take a Ride

Posted By on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 12:00 AM

Marshall-Williams is imaginatively named after the band's two members — vocalist Brett Lee Williams and guitarist William Marshall Bogue. But if that Southern-esque band name for a Detroit-based band generates ideas of whiskey-soaked outlaw country or brawl-fueled cow-punk (as it initially did with this writer), then think again.

His time is here

A genuine R&B pioneer sounds incredibly fresh and contemporary

Posted By on Wed, May 19, 2010 at 12:00 AM

Well, this one will surely sound fine blaring from a car stereo, the windows rolled down, on a hot summer day during these next several months. On Detroit and Chicago musical legend Andre Williams' second album for major indie Bloodshot, producer-guitarist Matthew Smith uses much the same formula — as...

The Courage of Others

Posted By on Wed, May 19, 2010 at 12:00 AM

Midlake's third album has the arch, moody insistence that tends to galvanize a love-hate relationship. The album is deeply inspired by the burbling British folk of Pentangle and the Renaissance, channeling stately webs of acoustic guitar enriched with a medieval flavor (notable in the trilling organs and flutes), all expressed...
