    Various Artists: Café Del Mar Volume Siete

It’s ironic that the club that has most come to symbolize Ibiza, Europe’s summertime hotbed of drug-and-techno-fueled, dance-all-night bacchanals, is the supremely mellow

    Jim White: No Such Place

Boy, I love creepy music. Not the silly teenage pentagram tattooed faux gibberish of legions of metal bands and mall Goths, but rather that sort

    The Tories: Upside of Down

You may have heard the music of the Tories without having heard OF them. Anyone vaguely familiar with the Christina (Married With Children) Applegate TV

    Twin Princess: The Complete Recordings

The two members of Twin Princess perceive their musical project as an art experiment, not a band. In backing this rather pretentious claim, the Seattle-based

    Michael Rose: Never Give It Up

Both the most and the least I can say about this album is: Michael Rose, the former lead singer of Black Uhuru, has released a

    Stephen Malkmus: self-titled

An emergent Finnish free-reed master, Maria Kalaniemi took up the five-row button accordion in 1972 at the age of eight, dedicating herself to classical studies for

    Japancakes: The Sleepy Strange

    Jaheim: Ghetto Love

There was such a buzz around this album that the amount of bootlegs circulating caused release dates in the US and Europe to be changed.

Johnny Dowd: Temporary Shelter

The booklet for Temporary Shelter contains a family portrait, presumably of an infant Johnny Dowd with his parents. The parents’ faces are stern, unsmiling, proud.

    Tram: Frequently Asked Questions

Mellow, subdued, quiet, melancholy, slow-paced, somber. These are all words I would use to describe tranquil British band Tram’s second album Frequently Asked Questions.
