'Welcome to the Human Race': Two Weeks with 'Out of the Blue'
Strong pop melodies often get a bad wrap. If a song is too catchy, too poppy or, heck, sometimes even too 'fun', the 'intelligent'-self-serious half of my musical mind is immediately suspicious. "Why yes, it is catchy...But is it 'real' music?" Then, hopefu...

AAaaand We're Back!
Hello dear friends. It has been a bit, hasn't it? I've throughly enjoyed my holiday season and I hope you have enjoyed yours. With the new year starting and now well underway, I thought it high time to get back up on the saddle and reboot 'The Locked Groove...

Let's Make This Precious: A Week with 'Too-Rye-Ay'
Some songs, no matter where I am or what I'm doing, always make me happy. Dexys Midnight Runners' 1982 smash-hit, Come On Eileen is one of those songs. Never ever fails to make me smile. Every time I come across it on the radio, the dial stops and I listen ...

Das Gute Musik: Two Weeks with Bach's Brandenburg concertos
I have Looney Tunes to thank for a good many things in my life. From an young age, they instilled a deep love of slapstick, goofy voices, and animation; also Bugs Bunny taught me that dressing up as a woman and kissing people full on the mouth can get you o...

A quick word...
This week I will not be posting a review on Sunday for a couple of reasons. First, the Brandenburg concertos are an amazingly dense work (as I'm discovering) and they clock in at almost two hours; so that's quite a bit of listening that I need to get done d...

'Pick Any Number, Choose Any Colour': A Week with 'The Bones of What You Believe'
Irony and sarcasm are overrated. Both have a place in art, literature, music, and movies, and correct, effective use can be powerful; but I feel sometimes in the day-to-day these two have been beaten to death. So maybe 'overused' or 'overtired' would be a m...

A Dub Odyssey: A Week with 'King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown'
Reggae is so much more than Bob Marley. I don't mean anything snarky or antagonistic by this statement. Bob Marley is an one-of-kind artist who put the music of a third world country on the global stage to be enjoyed by millions, if not billions, of people....
