Music, Angel Olsen's Roots Rock Prizes Feeling Over Certainty

Angel Olsen's Roots Rock Prizes Feeling Over Certainty

Certainties are not easily extracted from Angel Olsen. She does not pluck them from the air like floating candies, nor does she rattle them off in conversation, nor do they routinely bubble up in her songs. If present at all,…

Music, Hear This Bob Harp

Bob Harp

On his upcoming release Collecting Dust, Bob Harp's gently earnest delivery brings him in line with the 1972 continuum of singer-songwriters like James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot. But the album's stark, unfussy production gives it a makeshift, living room–studio feel,…

Music, <i>Beware</i> of the real Will Oldham

Beware of the real Will Oldham

Will Oldham masks his feelings with a thick beard, a devilish grin, and a stage persona known as Bonnie "Prince" Billy. The 38-year-old songwriter makes no apologies about the fact that Bonnie is an act, a vehicle for his music…

Music, Hear This The young and the accomplished: Nico Muhly

The young and the accomplished: Nico Muhly

It's people like Nico Muhly who make you realize how little you've accomplished. He has worked with Philip Glass (as an assistant, conductor, and editor), Björk (as pianist and string arranger), and Bonnie "Prince" Billy (likewise). He has received commissions…

Calendar, Night&Day Philip Glass' Progeny

Philip Glass' Progeny

Grumps of the "classical music is dying" variety should be heartened by the existence of Nico Muhly. The fresh-faced 27-year-old Juilliard graduate creates music that combines the avant garde-ism of Philip Glass with the humor of a young Mozart. His…

Sprang Time

Cheerful spring treats eventually sneak up on even the most morose: You see a cherry blossom, and you're feeling better, period. Silky air, tender greens, and longer days are undepressing. So go with it, and reward yourself still further by…

Melodic grandstanding from our boisterous buddies in Muse

If the pounding pianos and shrieking voices on last year's Six Demon Bag caught you off guard, consider this: There was a time when Man Man was exponentially weirder. On its 2004 debut The Man in a Blue Turban With…

Pink Nasty

Looks like it's time for the '90s indie rock revival. Sebadoh is reuniting for Noise Pop; the Silversun Pumpkins, er, Pick-ups are selling out venues left and right. Before you know it, rockers will be sucking down E's and going…

Music, Old Soul in Stereo

Old Soul in Stereo

Will Oldham's contributions to the American songbook have maintained a steady, scraggly, sublime output since the early '90s. Though Oldham has left behind the Palace, Palace Music, and Palace Brothers monikers with which he began his musical career, he still…

Music, Reviewed Tortoise and Bonnie "Prince" Billy

Tortoise and Bonnie "Prince" Billy

Will Oldham (aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy) isn't someone you'd necessarily associate with "fun," so the opening tracks on The Brave and the Bold, an engaging collection of cover songs recorded with Tortoise, are a welcome surprise. Oldham tackles Milton Nascimento's…
