"One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das": A Rocker Turns Inward

Neil Young Will Answer Your Questions on Twitter Tomorrow

Got a question you've been burning to ask Neil Young? Like, perhaps, what made him want to write "Cortez the Killer," or what he was thinking when he made Trans? (Which really isn't as bad as it's cracked up to…

Chromatics: Show Preview

Originally, Neil Young & Crazy Horse's "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" served as a rugged tribute to rock 'n' roll's everlasting fire and a eulogy for aging artists' diminishing returns. Chromatics' cover of the iconic song on the…

"Crazy Horse": Elegantly Uncovers French Cabaret

Recording the anthem "Les Filles du Crazy," half a dozen women — performers at the Crazy Horse, the classy Parisian nudie cabaret — sing of themselves, "They are the soldiers of the erotic army." The military metaphor proves apt, as…

Blitzen Trapper

Let's set the record straight. Despite a long list of rock writers claiming the contrary, Blitzen Trapper is not an Americana band. Sure, the band tinkers with roots rock: a little Creedence twang here, some Crazy Horse crunch there. But…

The Doe Duet

Singer-songwriter and actor John Doe is, of course, a founding member of X, one of the first punk bands to explicitly embrace American roots music. As a solo artist, his sinewy heartland rock combines the worried-man soul of Merle Haggard…

Neil Young & Crazy Horse

For at least a dozen years, Neil Young fans heard rumors of this album's release. Originally intended to be an addendum to a never-released, 10-disc boxed set, Live at the Fillmore East 1970 is the first chance many diehards have…

Centro-matic|The Leather Uppers|Husky Rescue|Wayne Hancock

God damn the humorless alt. country zealots for casting Centro-Matic as a blue-collar indie hero; it takes a hot second in the audience of the Denton, Texas, band to realize that it doesn't fit the knee-jerk definitions that find it…

The Court & Spark

Local act the Court & Spark seems intent upon wresting the crown of thorns from the hometown duke of despondency, American Music Club. The first half of Hearts features mournful tempos and an ambience of unremitting gloom. Yet C&S is…

The Mother Hips

When too many artists are cookie-cutter predictable, the more cynical listener can discern all there is to know from the first strum of a song's intro. So blessed be the band with the creativity to throw a crafty curveball. Chico-to-Bay…

Noh Goes Native

FRI-SAT 9/16-17 Erik Ehn doesn't script plays -- he channels them. The internationally lauded, California-based playwright's cross-cultural projects often result in something of a mix between a night at the theater and a religious experience. With an uncommon respect for…

Music, Silkworm


In the 1980s, American indie rock resembled an archipelago of separate, distinct islands, the inhabitants of which were left alone to formulate their own sounds. These days, through popular co-opting and rigid codification from within, the indie scene resembles a…

Neil Young

What distinguishes Silver and Gold from among the 30 or so other studio albums in Neil Young's massive catalog is that it belongs in the handful that tills the ground known in Young parlance as "country Neil." Since 1969, Young…

REAL ASTROLOGY For an Unreal World

Aries (March 21-April 19): When my rock band created a CD a few years ago, its scheduled release on May 8 coincided with the expected date of my daughter Zoe's birth. I regarded it as a sweet synchronicity until our…

Express Way Your cover article "This Is Welfare Reform?" (April 30), by Tara Shioya, was very disappointing. Instead of taking an objective look at the strengths and weaknesses of a social program, Shioya focused on the idiosyncrasies of the course…
