A Pretty Boy in His Underwear

Sweatin' to the Oldies: Bring pops to Kid Koala and his vinyl to the Knockout

The French and the Fuckers

Parisian women are normally portrayed as elegant and delicate, but those words just do not describe Uffie. Maybe it's the time she spends in sleazy Miami that has transformed the cute, would-be French chanteuse into a fiery, cussing electro-chick with…

She blinded me with Dirty South science; Mess around with old soul and the Castro

For well over a decade, U.K. expatriate Thomas "Dolby" Robertson has been a trailblazer in bringing music to the Internet (which would sound sort of absurd if it wasn't the truth). He also founded Beatnik, a San Mateobased technology company…

What's in a Name

Dog Bites felt bad for the San Francisco Bay Guardian last week. No, not the nauseated-bad that can result from reading the publication, but pity-bad -- the way you feel watching the shy, zit-infested guy stand against the wall at…

If you can't go home for Thanksgiving because a) you hate your family, or b) your family hates you, then that almost makes me sad. But instead of acting like the woeful outcast you are, come to Club NV's "Feast,"…

Sly, absurd, and more prolific than God, MC/producer MF Doom was crowned '04's king of the underground after releasing a half-dozen proper albums and numerous instrumental records in the past year and a half. Aesthetically, Doom is a bottom feeder.…

In the late '90s, Japan's DJ Krush caught the hipster zeitgeist with his crackling Japanese-garden trip hop. Spare breakbeats cradled lush atmospherics (1996's Meiso), A-list hip hop collaborations ('97's Milight), and extended trumpet solos ('98's collaboration with Toshinori Kondo, Ki-Oku),…
