Hear This

San Francisco's Numbers seems like a pretty unlikely candidate for a remix album. The trio -- drummer and main vocalist Indra Dunis, guitarist Dave Broekema, and keyboardist Eric Landmark -- plays the kind of raw, stop-and-start noise-rock that's anathema to…

I Am the World Trade Center

I Am the World Trade Center's debut is an odd duck -- a dance album that appeals to club kids and English teachers alike. Dance fiends can love Out of the Loop for its hyper pastiche of '80s electronica…

The Beautiful South; Fatboy Slim

When the Housemartins disbanded in 1988 -- killing off what was, hands down, the finest Christian Marxist folk-funk-pop-soul protest band to come out of England ever -- its members took divergent (and very British) paths toward tweaking American R&B. For…
