'1 i TGIF The Palm Beach Post MARCH 27, 1998 Page 27' s Robbie Robertson's roots rock; Rebekah sounds fresh gone-country flavor of Be Your Own, Rebekah covers an lenor-mous amount of ground, yet manages to make each song sound strikingly individual. Definitely a singer to watch. J.D. Considine, The Baltimore Sun. Contact from the Underground World of Redboy Robbie Robertson (Capitol) nation, but the two fit together quite nicely. Because a lot of American Indian music relies more on rhythm and repetition than on Western-style harmony, it's perfectly suited to the lean, groove-oriented approach of techno, ambient and dub. By using native chants and song fragments as core riffs, Robertson is able to respect his sources while still creating something that's entirely his own. J.D. Considine, The Baltimore Sun. Glam rockers have flirted with the Far East since the 70s, so it's hardly a shock that glam revivalists Spacehog would concoct something called The Chinese Album. But instead of taking the usual route to glam exoticism, Spacehog filters its brash Bowie-isms through bass-heavy club beats (One of These Days), Kinks-style vaudeville (Skylark) and lush, string-sweetened sound-scapes (as on the Steely Dan-ish Lucy's Shoe). There's also plenty of standard glam-rock fare, too, such as the brisk Spiders From Mars-ish Captain Freeman and the swaggering Goodbye Violet Race. Of course, what any of that has to do with China is impossible to guess, but hey it sure makes for great typography on the album cover! J.D. Considine, The Baltimore Sun. Remember to Breathe Rebekah (Elektra) Although Rebekah's age, voice and attitude are enough to make her seem like one more girl singer swept into the search for a new Alanis Morissette, the sound and sensibility she presents on Remember To Breathe is clearly her own. It isn't just that she has fresh ideas and a wonderful way with language, though that's more than enough to make Sin So Well instantly addictive; what really makes this album stand out from the pack is its musical range. From the buoyant, new-wave pulse of Hey Genius to the Joni Mitchell- Hear music Call 511 and enter category 1 126 to hear One Of Those Days by Spacehog MM and enter category 1 127 to hear Remember To Breathe by Rebekah. 50 for up to five minutes. See 2A for more f Robbie Robertson always has had a flair for musical Americana. I When he was writing for The ! Band, he touched on such musical ' bedrock as blues, gospel and country; as a solo artist, he evoked both the dark, swampy aura of New Orleans and the dry, rambling spaces of the Southwest. But it wasn't until he did the music for the television documentary The Native Americans that he began to explore an important part of his own musical roots. As a child in Canada, he spent summers on the Six Nations Reservation (his The Chinese Album Spacehog (SireWarner Bros.) I II ii ' m l mm mother is of Mohawk descent) and heard a lot of American Indian music, in addition to country and blues. As he grew older, that mmm PINE-DESIGN American Indian culture remained a part of him but it wasn't as easy to express as his love for country and blues.
