Drear leaders

2008 Listravaganza!

An absolute glut of cruelly reductive Top 10 lists from our dedicated staff of tirelessly enthusiastic writers

Wandering star

Jolie Holland | The Living And The Dead

Anti- (2008)
Holland doesn’t really need the added rock-band muscle; she’d be worth hearing accompanied only by the tap of her own toe.

Side by side by the waterside

A disparate diet of sounds at Newport
Gold Sounds were in the middle of a hellacious set of Pavement covers at the JVC-Newport Jazz Festival last Saturday afternoon when a woman who appeared to be in her 70s turned to me and said, “This is the sleeper of the day! I was going to get a lemonade and go back to Al Jarreau, but this is happening!” Slideshow: scenes from the JVC-Newport Jazz Festival
