    PLAYLIST

    Barbra Streisand The Concert (Columbia) Streisand has dedicated at least the most recent ten years of her career to trumpeting her own greatness, and The Concert--exceedingly portentous title--is no exception. The CD's jacket is dominated by rave...

    HUNT FOR A BLUE NOVEMBER

    Pianist/vocalist Kelley Hunt speaks in an unhurried, no-pretenses manner, as if she's chatting with the girls down at the beauty shop. The personality of this native of Lawrence, Kansas, shines through tasty and sweet--and so does her music, which co...

    ROCKABILLY, EUROPEAN STYLE - THE TENNESSEE BOYS WERE BORN IN PORTUGAL, BUT THEY LIVE IN DENVER. YOU FIGURE IT OUT.

    "Yes, we have been to Tennessee," says Mike Taveira, lead guitarist for the Denver-based rockabilly band the Tennessee Boys. "We have been to the airport there." He's smiling, but a second later, his brow furrows. "No, we have not been to Tennessee,"...

    HUMP DAY

    To put it succinctly, the music of certain artists is primarily intended for fucking. Yeah, you can listen to it in your car when you're alone, but you won't get the most it has to offer unless it's playing on the stereo while you're doing the grind ...

    Esquivel! Space-Age Bachelor Pad Music (Bar/None) I'm more than a little doubtful about the staying power of the new cocktail movement; if you have one Love Jones record, you probably don't need another. But any trend that raises the profile of l...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Ani DiFranco, Wednesday, November 9, at the Mercury Cafe, and Thursday, November 10, at the Fox Theatre, can do more with three chords and a complaint than an entire busload of weekend anarchists--and she does it with nothing more than an acoustic gu...

    SAINTS BE PRAISED

    England's Pale Saints believe that much of today's music is the aural equivalent of junk food: simple, predictable and with little nutritional value. By comparison, the Saints' body of work is subtle yet sublime, artsy yet unpretentious--and all but ...

    ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

    The year was 1988, the group was Public Enemy and the album was It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, as incendiary a blast of politicized bile as had been spewed by any band since the Sex Pistols. Lead rapper Chuck D, whose band had made a ...

    STATE OF GRACE - SINGER-SONGWRITER JEFF BUCKLEY WEARS HIS AMBITIONS ON HIS SLEEVE.

    When singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley talks about his music, he doesn't mess around. "I'd say my songs fall into [the category] of twentieth-century American," he notes, "because that definition encompasses so much. Pop art. Even the Flintstones. I...

    REVENGE OF THE GEEK - LISA GERMANO TAKES ON HER DEMONS--AND WINS.

    It's probably not a good idea to take literally singer-songwriter Lisa Germano's claim, "In the beginning, I was thinking I was going to do a happy record." After all, her terrific 1993 disc Happiness balanced gallows humor with material that was abo...

    LIFE IN THE BLUE CITY

    The members of Denver's Blue City 5 take a philosophical approach to their work. The performers feel that their music is not going anywhere and doesn't come from anywhere, either. It simply exists in eternal space and time. This theory might seem...

    THE 411 ON 311

    Right now, most alternative musicians seem to think that it's hip to be depressed. But according to Nicholas Hexum, the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the funky, danceable group 311, happiness is the best policy. "It seems like you could ...

    ONWARD, CHRISTIAN SINGERS! - THE KINGS OF CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN MUSIC BELIEVE THAT THEIR PRAYERS ARE ABOUT TO BE ANSWERED.

    For the most part, it looked and sounded like practically any rock concert. The throng at McNichols Arena on a Tuesday night in late October was dominated by teenagers, and if some of them appeared tidier and more clean-cut than the fans at your aver...

    SHLOCK OF THE NEW

    For those who like music with an edge, "I'll Make Love to You," by Boyz II Men (the biggest selling single in the country for over two months now) is not just annoying; it's an affront. Not only doesn't "Love" have an edge--it doesn't have a top, a b...

    "Sometimes I think that we're just an alternative band," says Doug Martsch, the voice and guitar behind Boise, Idaho's Built to Spill. "We're more than that, but I can see other people automatically pigeonholing us." Martsch needn't worry: Built t...
