The best record stores in the US

While most cram trebled-out Spotify tunes through Bluetooth headphones, you are curled up on the futon next to a turntable and a pair of speakers drowning in a full spectrum of highs and lows that may have not even been recorded on a digital mixing board. For you, intrepid listener, t...

Seattle mainstay musician Shawn Smith of Brad, Satchel, and Pigeonhed, RIP

Shawn Smith, the soulful singer who was a legend in the Seattle music scene, died yesterday at age 53. I first encountered Shawn's music by way of Greg Dulli's bands the Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers. But Smith's influence on the Seattle music scene, and rock in general, dates back to the late 1980s when he was part of the tight-knit community of musicians that birthed Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden. From the Seattle Times: In recent weeks, Smith was working on a new album ...

Roxy Coss: Future Is Female

Jazz and politics go way back. One can argue that Louis Armstrong's Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings in the 1920s were political since they were a daring push to be taken seriously and treated equally.

In the 1950s and beyond, jazz as an individualized form too...
