LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

S amplers and home studios have made precocious musical talent so commonplace that even the brightest in the class quickly grow bored with their own effortless skills.

All of you hepcats who know who played bass with the third edition of King Crimson can rejoice, your time has come.

Coming from the indie-rock scene, where signing to a major label was once considered selling out, Modest Mouse shows you can take the independent rock band off the indie label, but you'll never quite get rid of the indie ethos.

Plus, Edie Brickell, Aimee Mann, Blackalicious, and more.
