Macy Gray: The Id

What Gray possesses is a distinct voice and even more distinct personality that has given her the kind of visibility that she could have never imagined-the gawky brown girl with the squeaky voice has perhaps “queered” our perceptions of “The Diva”.


Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci: How I Long to Feel That Summer in My Heart

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci are often tagged as a Britpop band, mainly, it seems, because they play a sometimes quirky brand of indie fare that happened to come to the attention of English listeners during the '90s amid the Cool Britannia hype and hoopla . . . [however the] sound of GZM clearly challenged the Englishness that dominated Britpop and questioned the terms of its urban, largely male, rock hegemony.

Bob Dylan: “Love and Theft”

On September 11, Bob Dylan released a master work buzzing and sparking with the depthless energy of American folk music and charged with a faith in the goodness and potential harmony of the human community as wild and oceanic as Whitman’s.


Ryan Adams: Gold

Gold feels like a record hiding behind masks. Maybe Adams has spent so many years laying his heart out on the line that he’s trying to create a little distance
