"Born in the dust-laden family garage with archaic samplers, Radio Shack mics and broken record players, Mute Math have been noisily calculating their notes for the past few years.

So say the quartet comprising Mute Math, who hit Slim's last week along with The Cinematics and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Good Drinking in Mendocino



I spent a couple of days over the weekend perusing the Anderson Valley and the Mendocino coast.

The Beat was joined by L.A. band The Plimsouls, who rocketed onto the charts in 1983 with Valley Girl hit, "A Million Miles Away."

Relative newcomers to the indie post-punk scene, the War Tapes, whose style and sound have been likened to that of Interpol and The Editors, were in town last week to play a gig at Popscene before heading back to their home base, L.A.


Ladies (and Gentlemen)-Who-Lunch: At Their Desks


Caramelized Fennel, Baby Artichoke and Goat Cheese Crostata.

I eat a lot of lunches at my desk. It’s the sad reality of the working world in America—no leisurely al fresco lunches, wine glass in hand, few power lunches, two martini style. Instead we have desk lunches, computer lunches, hot soup in mug holder of mini-van lunches.
