    Tommy Ramone, last surviving Ramones cofounder, dead at 65

    Lana Del Rey wishes For death; Kurt Cobain's daughter responds
    Singer Lana Del Rey has recently found herself in a rather gloomy spotlight. After citing Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse as her heroes, the 28-year-old New York native recently stated in an interview with The Guardian that “I wish I was dead...
  • Un viaje a Seattle, la joya del Pacífico americano

    Le dicen "la ciudad esmeralda", y no necesariamente porque evoque a la mítica tierra de Oz, sino por la continua lluvia que mantiene las áreas verdes de Seattle en ese color. Pero cuando se trata de elogios, se puede ir más allá de los atributos...

    As vinyl returns, they've got it covered
    Thousands of old-style cardboard sleeves for Jack White's album "Lazaretto" sit in tightly packed checkerboard rows at Stoughton Printing plant in the City of Industry, 12.3-inch squares waiting to be stuffed with 12-inch circles. Jack Stoughton Jr.,...

    Kristeen Young gives voice to the periphery while linking up to the stars

  • Review: 'The Jesus Lizard Book'

     Review: 'The Jesus Lizard Book'
    'The Jesus Lizard Book" is a beautiful document of a band that wasn't afraid to be abrasive, chaotic, brutal and, sometimes, ugly. A sharply designed coffee-table book for a band that left bruises wherever it went — most of them on the tiny but...

    In defense of Billy Corgan's 'Siddhartha'
    "Play normal music!" The woman yelling this at Neil Young stood three rows away from him at the Rosemont Theater in 2004. Between each song, as he spoke to the crowd about the next chapter in "Greendale," the theatrical rock play he was presenting...
  • The Biblioracle: Literature's new state of nirvana

    The Biblioracle: Literature's new state of nirvana
    Freshman year at the University of Illinois, I lived in the dorm complex known as the "Six-Pack." This was 1988-89, the boombox era, and everyone seemed to have one propped on their window ledge facing the interior courtyard, and the soundtrack echoing...

    Album review: Foster the People, 'Supermodel'
     *** (out of 4)   When "Pumped Up Kicks" vaulted Foster the People to rock stardom in summer 2011, it was an odd record to take off in such extreme fashion. Not only was it a mellow, easy-listening tune in a time of dance-driven power-pop, but tucked...
  • R&B meets grim and grime in Afghan Whigs' 'Do to the Beast'

     R&B meets grim and grime in Afghan Whigs' 'Do to the Beast'
    Rock 'n' roll has a way of romanticizing the tortured and the libertines, especially ones with a little poetry in them. Singer Greg Dulli, whose band Afghan Whigs returns Tuesday with its first new album in 16 years, "Do to the Beast," clearly has a...

    Lorde honors Nirvana: Love your singing, hate your swearing
    My, Lorde, you sure can sing — and swear too. In case you missed it, the precocious New Zealand teen with the unique voice — and the performing style she copied from Joe Cocker — helped induct Nirvana into the Rock and Roll Hall of...
