The Books show their archivist instincts

In 1998, the Books didn't exist yet. Holding their place was a tower of MiniDiscs hovering conspicuously in the corner of Paul de Jong's New York apartment. Nick Zammuto, a dinner guest new to the city, was distracted by the…

Music, Reviewed Beck

Beck

Danger Mouse's presence as co-producer doesn't drastically alter what we've come to expect from Beck on the dude's eighth album: sleepy intonations, collage imagery, and junkyard instrumentation. Still, the ghostly vibe here is very much in line with both Gnarls…

Music, Reviewed Gnarls Barkley

Gnarls Barkley

We expect a lot from our indie-ethos crossover pop stars nowadays, even from a duo as inspired as Gnarls Barkley, aka DJ Danger Mouse and rapper Cee-Lo. We expect guilt-free yet radio-worthy earworms like "Crazy," not to mention genuine pathos,…

Music, Future-Funk Overlords

Future-Funk Overlords

Gnarls Barkley's debut single "Crazy" hit the Internet in late 2005 and was officially released in the U.K. last spring, reigning at No. 1 for nine weeks. The song — a honeyed, high-strung vamp on mental illness luxuriated in spaghetti-western…

Gnarls Barkley

Gorillaz

I'll admit I was stumped when I first saw the iPod commercial featuring "Feel Good Inc.," from Gorillaz's new Demon Days. That lazy Britpop vocal sounded so familiar atop the pretty acoustic strumming, and yet I couldn't place it. Then,…

Busdriver

Busdriver belongs to the rapid-firing, über-caffeinated slam-poet school of MCing. While such diarrhetic verbalizing can be numbing, the L.A. artist's verses prove consistently fascinating, mainly because they're witty and well detailed, with a cockeyed surrealism. Much of Fear of a…
