Music: Nellie McKay

Oct 6, 2010, By Barbara Schultz

“Where do songs come from?” Nellie McKay asks in our interview about her latest release, Home Sweet Mobile Home. Her question may be directed inward in part, but it’s not rhetorical. After making five albums—four composed of original material and one collection of Doris Day covers, Normal as Blueberry Pie—this sweet-voiced, quirky, gentle artist is still somewhat mystified by her own process. ...

Sep 22, 2010, By Blair Jackson

Offhand, Michael Franti and Spearhead would not seem to be likely candidates to land songs in the Top 20 and become a popular headliner.

Classic Tracks: The Smiths' "What Difference Does It Make?"

Sep 8, 2010, By Barbara Schultz

Depending on whom you ask, The Smiths were either the most important British indie band of the ’80s—bringing great guitars back to a synth-weary new-wave audience—or they were self-indulgent posers who disdained their own fans. Love them or hate them, The Smiths made quite an impression when their eponymous first album was released in 1984. ...

American Hi-Fi Rocks on in Los Angeles
