This Is Noise Pop: What Not to Miss at S.F.'s Signature Indie Music Fest

Now it's a festival name, an almost-genre, and, for some, even a mantra — but back in 1993, "noise pop" was just a term Kevin Arnold made up to describe a bunch of bands he liked. He stenciled the phrase…

The Top 5 Most Politically Incorrect Music Videos

Since yesterday's Super Bowl Half Time Show was so sorely lacking in wardrobe malfunctions -- frankly, we found the Black Eyed Peas' outfits a billion times more offensive than Janet Jackson's silver-plated nipple, but whatever -- we decided to provide…

Coping With The White Stripes' Breakup with Funny French Cartoons

More than just a band ended today, with the White Stripes' announcement that they are formally ceasing to record, perform, exist. (They hadn't done anything for a long while, anyway.) Easily the best of a cohort that might loosely be…

Eight Christmas Songs Worth Saving From the Fire (by The White Stripes, The Fall, Kurtis Blow, & more)

Like clockwork, the waning of each year brings another slew of Christmas songs. Even Dylan has gotten in on the act. The vast majority of the seasonal crop is either nostalgic rehashings or sentimental cash-ins, but there are always a…

Though she may be another diminutive white Brit with a soul-drenched, powerhouse voice and a penchant for moody blues, expect no trainwreck behavior or subpar performances from Alice Russell. She guest-starred on two albums by Quantic Soul Orchestra, and her…

Let's Get Killed

White Stripes

With each subsequent White Stripes release, Jack White's psyche tugs at itself, over-correcting previous tendencies, teetering between manic and measured. Part obsessive, part Luddite, who else would take that fetish item, the color-vinyl 7-inch, and concoct a red-white color scheme…
