For one thing, she finished the damn song afterwards, which is pretty impressive when you consider that she's a 56-year-old lady and… More »

By Chris DeVille / February 27, 2015

By Tom Breihan / February 27, 2015
Microkingdom are a sax/guitar/drums trio from Baltimore who play a sort of euphorically spazzed-out improv noise-jazz.

To Bring You My Love Turns 20

By Tom Breihan / February 27, 2015
In 1995, a few months after she released her best album, I saw PJ Harvey play an American football stadium. Alternative rock was firmly entrenched as a business interest by then, and major labels and radio programmers had started seizing on bands -- Candlebox, say, or Bush -- who could replicate the sounds of young… More »
