Lou Barlow – [Album]
REVIEWS

Lou Barlow Brace The Wave (Joyful Noise) I can’t deny it (nor would I want to): I am a Lou Barlow fan. To date, there hasn’t been a musical project of which he was a part that I haven’t loved; Sebadoh, Sentridoh, Dinosaur Jr., Folk Implosion and the stuff he’s just recorded under his own name have all found a home in my record collection. Granted, there was that one EP that Folk Implosion did with Deluxx which I found...

Neil Young – [Album]
REVIEWS

Neil Young and Bluenote Cafe Bluenote Cafe 2CD (Reprise/Warner) Many things could be said for and about Neil Young but, without a doubt, that he was never brash enough to follow a questionable artistic lede through to its conclusion is not one of them. One of the best examples of that can be found in the guitarist’s straight-up blues/R&B period; in the late Eighties (read: long after The Blues Brothers might have made the sound popular enough to turn Bluenote...

Review: Van Morrison delivers inspired jazz-rock show in Oakland
LIVE MUSIC

By Jim Harrington jharrington@bayareanewsgroup.com Van Morrison seemed intent on proving a point. It began when he first took the stage on Monday night at the Fox Theater, promptly — as is his wont — at the scheduled set time of 8 p.m. His first notes of the evening weren’t sung, but rather blown thrown an alto saxophone. He followed that brief instrumental with a vibrant take on “Close Enough for Jazz,” from his 22nd studio album, 1993’s “Too Long in...

Kruuna Klaava, by Kotiteollisuus [Review]
REVIEWS

New article from our Finnish Correspondent, Suvi Jyrinki This time I´d like to go a little step further representing bands from my country and chose one from probably the craziest part of Finnish metal. I discovered Kotiteollisuus for the very first time, when I was 17 and going to a vocational school, that was called many different names and one of those names was accidentally ’Kotiteollisuuskoulu’. Could there be any more creative or simply better recommendations for anything in this...

The Flaming Lips – [3CD]
REVIEWS

The Flaming Lips Heady Nuggs 1994-1997 – 20 Years After Clouds Taste Metallic (Warner Brothers Records) As most fans know, The Flaming Lips had already gone through a few semi-seamless transitions by the time they were ready to begin making Clouds Taste Metallic. By then, they’d already been DIY Okie punks and goth-y pseudo rockers, and had even managed to sort of put together an arresting estimation of their first genuinely golden sound (see Transmissions From The Satellite Heart, released...
