Songwriting like a sieve

Stockholm Syndrome is a recurring condition

By Dave Kirby
The song, also the title track, is a little off-putting, even as it relaxes from its chunky and rusty-fender guitar chord opening into an uneasily medicated, pedal steel-tinged chorus. At more than seven minutes, it's the CD's opener, its title tune and its longest track but not by a long stretch its most inviting.

Aural orgy

DeVotchKa makes music for 100 Lovers

By Dave Kirby
'Yeah,' Urata says, 'it's not like we're the Beatles and we were in the studio every day, but, yeah, it did take a year and change to get it together. We didn't really tell anyone that we were going to do it, but we kind of decided that we would let the songs ferment and take on their own life.

All-star collaboration

Davy Knowles is ready for his close-up

By Dave Kirby
There's a great moment from an audience video shot last October at the Rock 'n Roots fest in Amsterdam of Joe Satriani, Sonny Landreth and Davy Knowles gangtackling the old blue-rock warhorse 'I'm Going Down,' one of those easy-to-rehearse standby numbers that gets festival showcase guitarists together onstage for last-encore artillery practice.

Johnny O's blues sky

Playing the blues with 300 days of sunshine

By Dave Kirby
Brazil? "My father lives down there half the year," Ohnmacht explains. "I started going down there 10 years ago, and I hooked up with a good buddy who's a producer/manager type guy. He's been putting these little tours together for me. He's connected with a lot of the top acts in Rio, and all the top clubs."

About Face

Local a cappella heroes, Face, change it up for the holidays

By Dave Kirby
Teetering on the brink of its second decade and firmly established as a local elixir of uncommon sparkle, Face isn't spending too much time worrying about how Mr. Folds helped usher them off NBC's televised Sing-Off thing last year, whining something about their Bon Jovi cover lagging a little on the chorus.

With shades of 'Trane

John McLaughlin’s dimensional travels

By Dave Kirby
No, the echoes of Coltranes soul-baring masterpiece resonate now through contemporary musicians as faint but unmistakable calls to higher spiritual channeling, and genuine technical expertise in the service of challenging convention. In this regard, one might suggest McLaughlin has been channeling Coltrane for much of nearly 50 years in music.

In his own world

Can Mike Gordon stand still?

By Dave Kirby
Well, we suppose a real day off for Gordon wouldnt include doing any interviews, but Phish had just wrapped up its early fall tour with a Halloween gig in Atlantic City, N.J., and it was a day or two before he headed back out for a stretch with his own band.

Funky roots

Motet plays Earth, Wind and Fire

By Dave Kirby
For a guy who makes his living — hell, draws nearly his every breath — from da funk, it was only a matter time before Dave Watts made this pilgrimage. This year’s series of Motet and Friends trib gig finds Watts fronting a 12-piece band, playing the music of what many consider the absolute sine qua non of ’70s funk ’n’ soul ’n’ R&B, Maurice White’s Earth, Wind and Fire.

Living la vida viral

OK Go makes the best out of a digital situation

By Dave Kirby
Before long, The Atlantic writer Andrew Sullivan had embedded the video in his Daily Dish blog, with a bonus link to Gizmodos behind-the-scenes column. Huffington Post linked it off its secondary sidebar by mid-afternoon. In a day or two, it was front and center at CNN.
