Although Out Of Range still contains several voice-and-guitar pieces, Andy Stochansky's drumming and percussion are better integrated. Keyboards and horns also make guest appearances. Overall, the intimate, not-quite-lo-fi album sounds not unlike Liz Phair's EXILE IN GUYVILLE, a fact that probably helped trend-sniffing music journalists finally notice DiFranco-four years and six albums into her career. The astonishingly good songwriting, particularly on the stirring "Face Up and Sing" and the winsome "The Diner," undoubtedly helped as well. This is one of the '90s finest singer-songwriter albums.
Samantha Mumba is ostensibly an R&B singer, but a close inspection of her debut disc Gotta Tell You reveals some ideas that extend beyond generic R&B production. "Body II Body" is constructed around samples from David Bowie's "Ashes to Ashes," and there's talk of "biorythms" and "spiritual attraction" amid the overwhelming carnality. "Baby Come Over" is pure pop, with a well-honed hook that could have come straight off a Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera album. "Lately" contains some undeniable gospel overtones, as well as orchestral backing. At the same time, there's plenty of solid R&B to found here, but there's enough stylistic variety to keep things from ever getting too monochromatic.

True to form, the band launches into an ethereal, Stereolab-influenced "In Particular" after the opening mini-track's sonic blast. There is an initial kitchen-sink, frenetic similarity between Blonde Redhead and Solex, though the former is the more verbal, softer of the two. This similarity is shattered, however, by "Loved Despite of Great Faults," a measured, modest ballad with just a touch of Brian Wilson's wistfulness to its late-Beatles-meet-the-Kinks patina. Throughout it all, Kazu Makino and Amedeo Pace trade off sweet and captivating vocals, breathing life into subtly compelling lyrics.

Also, they flexed their new "Flux" on Conan last night, where it featured much less autotune on the vox, sounding more like the band we fell in love with on Alarm, even more new wave-y if that's possible. Only, that "We need to talk!" is so "We're gonna win this!" We'll bring you the Conan clip when it's YouTube'd.Part1

The collection will also contain songs which weren't completed for Hot Fuss and Sam's Town. The Killers recently went back into the studio to finish the tracks, including "Tranquilize" featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Lou Reed.

Not since the Beatles has a group managed to combine mass popularity and cutting-edge aesthetic triumphs so consistently as Radiohead, who by the time of Hail To The Thief had been on a roll since 1997's OK Computer (as great as The Bends was, it didn't garner the band mainstream attention). While Kid A and Amnesiac had been outre, boundary-pushing attempts to expand the pop-rock palette even beyond the ambitious OK Computer, Hail To The Thief incorporates the avant-garde techniques developed in that journey, applying them to more formal song structures. In this way, we get the best of both worlds on what just might be Radiohead's best album yet.
Though this isn't a return to the straight-ahead pop structures of The Bends, the guitar does make a welcome return here. There are plenty of glitchy electronics and atmospheric keyboards, etc., but they're integrated with traditional "rock" instrumentation" in a completely organic way. Though they remain art-rockers to the end, with Thom Yorke expressing carefully wrought angst both personal and political, Radiohead injects some blood into things as well. The occasional hard-grooving funk rhythm and crazed rock guitar riff keeps even the airiest sentiments well anchored, making Hail To The Thief as well balanced as it is progressive.

Lacking the patchwork quality of the debut, KALA is a more cohesive and polished affair, though it matches its predecessor for shear visceral thrills. Recorded across several different continents, and featuring the production talents of Timbaland, Switch, and Blaqstarr, as well as longstanding collaborator Diplo, the globetrotting beat makers mine sources as varied as funk carioca, Baltimore bounce, and the occasional ludicrously placed sound-effect (a squawking chicken). The gloriously bombastic lead single, "Boyz," kicks off the party with a blaring horn loop, carnival percussion, and a stuttering Bollywood vocal sample, while M.I.A. merrily chants the chorus in her sing-song faux patois. The twittering, beat-heavy "Bird Flu" sounds a bit like what you might expect--jagged beats create syncopated poly-rhythms, while birds chirp feverishly against Arulpragasam's bratty invective. But the irreverent cultural re-appropriation doesn't stop at her borrowing from the third world; clever nods to the Clash, New Order, and even Jonathan Richman appear in unexpected and cheeky combinations, offering further proof that M.I.A.'s potent cross-cultural grab bag is as sonically audacious as ever.

"We all decided," Richard Ashcroft told us, "That rather than meeting for a cup of coffee or a beer or whatever, we should meet in a studio where we can do what we do. Straight away."
