Riot Grrrl is a myriad of contradictions. And that’s to the good.

American cities with thriving music scenes in 1984 overlooked by Huey Lewis & The News in their #1 US Pop Hit ‘The Heart Of Rock And Roll’

Forgetting Minneapolis? The year of Purple Rain, Let It Be, and Zen Arcade? Inexcusable.

Nirvana’s Nevermind, 20 Years Ago

It’s taken me nearly two decades to admit to liking Nevermind in public again. In celebration, I’ve decided to reprint my original review.

Shabazz Palaces – Black Up (Sub Pop)

I gave it name. “Oblique hip-hop”: angular but open, unkinked but unlinked


Handsome Furs — Sound Kapital (Sub Pop)

Oh, shit, I’m sorry man, my mouth tends to run a bit when I’ve been drinking.

the song that changed my life

Sub Pop even released my version as a seven-inch, the worst-selling on the label


Washed Out: the focus group response review

I like that I can delete this from my iTunes and not miss it later.

Washed Out – Within And Without (Sub Pop)

Music to make out to, I suppose. A collegiate version of Norah Jones.
