Basement Jaxx

Ten years down the line, dance-pop duo Basement Jaxx writes its own ticket in choosing collaborators. Its fifth album, Scars, features such marquee names as Santogold, Kelis, Sam Sparro, and Yoko Ono. The pair's patented jangly, unrestrained house music suits…

Get it? Glasgow + Las Vegas

Scotland's Glasvegas is the latest in retrofuturism. The band's self-titled debut combines its hometown heroes Jesus and Mary Chain with My Bloody Valentine's shimmering walls of feedback and the surf and fuzz of '60s girl groups. There's a hint of…

Neptune's Gravitational Pull

The Duke Spirit's excellent second album, Neptune, swaggers with the confidence of a group that has extracted the best of its influences — think Sonic Youth and PJ Harvey — into a bluesy grind all its own. The taut energy…

Antony and the Johnsons

Music, Reviewed Moby


Moby's latest release is a return to the dancefloor that birthed him. This is especially true of the tracks that smack of his early-'90s compositions — "Everyday It's 1989" and "The Stars" resemble his rave anthems "Feeling So Real" and…

Dust Galaxy: Thievery Corporation's Rob Garza Crafts Electro-Rock Stardust

The eight-year-old party "Compression" is almost single-handedly keeping drum 'n' bass alive in the Bay Area. The event is now in the palatial new digs of Temple, where its promoters set up shop every week. An expected highlight of Compression's…

Legendary Oddballs Ween Paint the Town Brown

A case could be made for San Francisco's American Music Club being a truly American counterpart to Britain's Joy Division. Although they're sonically different, the two groups share common ground in journeying through various ventricles of the Heart of Darkness,…

Derrick Carter + Mark Farina

Capturing DJs Derrick Carter and Mark Farina in their element -- that is, spinning back-to-back sets to a packed house last February at Om's monthly party at Mezzanine -- this double disc attempts to put you smack in the middle…

Music, Reviewed Starsailor


Starsailor's second album, Silence Is Easy, suffers from the dreaded sophomore slump phenomenon. The band members, particularly vocalist James Walsh, spent years contemplating -- and were under virtually no pressure to create -- their wonderfully tormented debut, Love Is Here.…

Music, Reviewed Underworld


Formed in 1989, Underworld proved that galloping rhythms, pulsating techno beats, chiming melodies, and vocalist Karl Hyde's stream-of-consciousness, borderline nonsensical words could add up to a lot more than just a mindless, faceless dance number. To a genre that consisted…

The Sleepy Jackson

Australia's the Sleepy Jackson is the project of one Luke Steele and his revolving door of musicians, who reportedly keep leaving due to the songwriter's rigidity. But it's a good thing Steele is so stubborn, because the band's debut, Lovers,…

Music, Reviewed Spiritualized


The first thing one thinks of when it comes to Spiritualized is drugs. Part of this has to do with central member Jason Pierce's transparent drug references, and part of it has to do with album titles like 2001's Let…

Basement Jaxx

Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe, the British DJ/producers who make up Basement Jaxx, have never worried about fitting in musically. Rather, they make everything fit into their music. On their debut album, Remedy, Buxton and Ratcliffe rebelled against the restrictions…

Music, Reviewed Steadman


Although Britain's latest export, Steadman, has adopted Jon Bon Jovi and Glenn Danzig's practice of naming the group after its lead singer's last name, that's where the self-indulgence stops. Instead, Steadman's music exists somewhere between Oasis' anthemic tendencies and Coldplay's…
