Inhe signed a deal with Universal Records on which would be released The Outsideron September That was never, ever in the game plan. Fuck that. So I think it's time for certain fans to decide if they are fans of the album, or the artist. It was released in on CD in a pressing limited to copies on the Reconstruction Productions label. On March 7,Shadow announced that he was working on new music. Though no release date was given, he assured, "It will sound different from the last one.
Another song from the album, titled "Warning Call," featuring Tom Vekwas released on 7 Septemberand was featured as a free download on the official DJ Shadow Facebook page. The artwork for this album, the associated singles and promotional material was done by Tony Papesh, an artist from San Francisco, California. In MayShadow revealed to Billboard that the group was in fact himself and trap producer G Jones working together.
Shadow was approached by Deftones to contribute to their White Pony 20th anniversary re-issue remix project, Black Stallion. Singer Chino Moreno explained that they originally wanted him to remix the whole album,   citing him as an inspiration at the time they recorded it.
The book Behind the Beat documents Shadow's home studio named "Reconstruction" through photos and a brief description as of DJ Shadow's work involves manipulating samples, taking rare and seldom-heard pieces of music and reworking them into parts and phrases for his songs.

I had reached the same conclusion, based on my mapping and back filling of disturbed areas at the site, and reported it to Coe in Tra also spent several weeks at the close of each field season from the mids into the early s closing down the Laboratories' investigations at Upper Sara- town.
I presume this involved excavating a few insig- nificant pits that the summer crew had left unopened because of time pressure or simply because they did not want to do the work. These efforts also called for back filling the excavations. As we have seen, Tra spent most of his first ten years at the Laboratories digging plow zone, sifting back dirt, and back filling.
Rather than constructing neat plywood boxes to encase features to be taken back to the laboratory in one piece, Tra developed a procedure that consisted of wrapping a cardboard collar made from any old box lying around and securing it with duct tape. This in turn was covered with newspaper and a shell of auto body repair filler. The result of this was simply a mess. Instead of having expertly constructed wooden boxes that could be stored neatly on laboratory shelves for careful study at some point in the future, this procedure produced an array of unsightly, irregularly shaped, light tan-colored cocoons.
You should note that the fieldwork component of the Siouan Project was basically the same as the experience he had at Warren Wilson: remove and sift the plow zone, then record and excavate pits and post holes visible at the top of the subsoil.
The results of this work have been reported in a series of monographs Dickens et al. Tra and his cronies transformed the elegant culture history devel- oped by Joffre Coewho relied on six foci and less than two dozen pottery and projectile point types to explain the last years of Native American occupation, into a complex scheme that now takes at least a long weekend to master.
Their obfuscation has, indeed, dulled Occam's Razor. Fittingly, and true to form, he and his partner, the eminent R. Steven Davis, Jr. Are we to thank them for the page Time Before History Ward and Davis and the hundreds of innocent trees they con- sumed with this task? By comparison, a notable scholar was able to do a convincing job for most of the state in eleven pages of rather large print Coe In a world concerned with degradation of the environ- ment, where educated people should be our leaders in conservation, not only do we deserve better His "high tech" expertise is clearly apparent in the following testimony from Mrs.
Ward: We were in the living room watching television one evening, Trawick was sitting in his rocking chair when the telephone rang. He reached for the telephone and tried to answer it, but after several tries with several different buttons he was unable to make the phone stop ringing. Finally the answer- ing machine came on because Tra was talking into the TV remote control rather than the cordless telephone.
Tra's record of publication and papers presented at professional meetings makes it abundantly clear that he lacks discipline and focus. If you recall, he started his career digging in Georgia, but abruptly switched to Missouri, then to North Carolina, then to Virginia and back again to North Carolina.
Even in North Carolina he could not stay focused. First he worked on the Pied- mont at Guilford Courthouse, then jumped to the moun- tains, back to the Piedmont, eventually to the Coastal Plain, and finally onto the Appalachian Summit. Given this record it is not surprising that he has been unable to specialize and gain expertise in one area. If you examine his published record you will leam that he has written articles on soil science Ward ; Ward and Trinkleyphysical anthropology Coe et al.
At this time it is appropriate that we examine another aspect of his archaeological career—his relationship with colleagues and students. Those who have had the opportunity to work with Tra know him to be a gentle soul. Harsh words are not to be found in his vocabulary. Blunt, biting, or sarcastic phrases are absent from his rhetoric. Well-considered polite words issued in a soothing low voice characterize his manner of speech. He is respectful of others' feelings and reveres the ideas and concepts of his peers, no matter how far fetched.
He has naught but good to say of all the folks he meets. He has the ability to remain calm and objective when the world around him goes awry. At times, as one observer expressed it, Tra "was the only sane person in an insane world. I quote from one of his mail mes- sages: Don't thank me for your good fortune; you graduate students enjoy your country club lifestyle in spite of me. If I had my way, you'd all be locked in the processing lab washing potsherds until the first sign of spring.
Then rd send you to the boonies to dig untu the first hard freeze—all for minimum wage. What research you'd get done would be on your own time, late at night, and I'd require everything to be turned in typed—on an old Underwood typewriter. His concern is even better shown by the following account given to me by one of his recent students.
The present structure of the doctoral written comps, which are open book, at UNC is to write essays over aperiod of 8 hours; 4 hours one day and 4 the next. The candidate has to defend those answers, the dissertation proposal, and deal with other con- cerns of committee members at the oral exams, which usually take two hours at the most, a couple of weeks later.
I mentioned one day to Trawick that I was going to write my exam essays on a Saturday and Sunday. He responded by e-mail with the following: "What is this [expletive]!? Exams on the weekend!

Trawick Ward and Bennie C. Keel, SEAC Your committee will perform a bed check each evening at PM. Still, you'll think you passed. However, your committee will know better. Certainly this is nothing compared to a Nuer circumcision as it was in my time. An example is a conversation he had on the telephone with a caller on his last visit to his daughter in Germany.
I quote this conversation in its entirety: Ring, ring. Tra: Hello. Caller: Wer ist dieses? Tra: I don't speak English. Caller: Wiht, das sind ich sprechend? Caller: Mag ich mit Rachel sprechen? I make no pretense of having an unbiased view of my colleague or claim it to be fair or even reasonable. I put my own spin on the truth of the preceding remarks. I hope you have been able to sort the pearls from the swine or, as it were, pull the pig from the poke.
The record is clear; H. Trawick Ward is a productive scholar whose positive impact on archaeology has influenced and will continue to influence how archae- ology is done in the Southeast, and the greater United States, through his writings, his students, and his col- leagues.
Among my greatest treasures is to have him as a close professional colleague and, even of more value, as a friend. But the greatest among these possessions is to have eaten his barbecue.
Space constraints, unfortunately, have not allowed me to describe his adventures on his Harley, but I would be remiss if I did not tell you there is a sizable body of tales that should be collected.

Another possible artifact-bearing level is present beneath the Archaic component and presumably predates it, although the cultural identity of this lowermost artifact level is unknown. A long-term research project at Barber Creek will address substantive issues of the region's arcliaeology that have remained problematic due to poor archaeological context. Further excavation and analysis should contribute to our understanding of early and middle Holocene chronology, typology, and geoarchaeology.
By Trawick Ward had completed the better part of five summers excavating at the Hardaway site Daniel ; Ward and Davis At that time, Trawick was one of a handful of Southeastern archaeologists with considerable experience working on stratified sites with early and middle Holocene remains. One might think that such expertise would have been the basis for a career in Paleoindian or Archaic studies.
But, for reasons perhaps known only to Trawick, he eschewed such studies and turned his attention to Woodland and Contact period archaeology. Accordingly, in the early s, Trawick and his colleagues at the Research Laboratories of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina conceived the Siouan project, which preoccupied the remainder of Trawick's career.
Given that turn of events, one might reflect that early prehistory's loss was late prehistory's gain. In any case, with the exception of the Haw River project Daggett and Cablethe early s saw the last major field work in the state on a stratified site with significant early and middle Holocene remains.
With that thought in mind, I began East Carolina University's field school at Barber Creek in hopes of locating stratified archaeological deposits in the North Carolina Coastal Plain. This article presents an overview of that field work and a preliminary assess- ment of the archaeological potential at Barber Creek, where well-stratified and radiocarbon-dated early and middle Holocene archaeological deposits have been excavated.
The Barber Creek site 31PT was recorded over twenty years ago during a cultural resource survey preliminary to proposed construction of a waste treatment plant in Greenville Phelpsa. Limited testing at that time revealed the stratified presence of a ceramic-period occupation, represented by Woodland series pottery, underlain by lithic remains Phelps No tem- porally diagnostic points were found in the lower levels, but the recovery of two unidentifiable point fragments, flaking debris, and one unifacial scraper suggested an Archaic component.
The latter artifact, an end scraper, is particularly interesting both in form and raw material. Its small size and drop-like morphology is distinctive of those well-made unifacial tools usually associated with early Holocene assemblages. Further- Figure 1. Location of the Barber Creek site 31PT The source of this stone is unknown, but it probably originates outside the North Carolina Coastal Plain, perhaps in the Allendale quarries located along the Savannah River in the Coastal Plain of South Carolina Goodyear and Charles Increasing the potential importance of Barber Creek was Together (Refined Mix) - Various - House II House - Mellow 1 (CD) presence of preserved organic materials in the excavations.
While most frequently recovered from the upper levels, wood charcoal, burned nutshell, and calcined bone fragments were also found in the lower levels. Based on these results, Phelps a, considered the Barber Creek site significant for several reasons.
Barber Creek was the only stratified site with Archaic remains known in the region. The site contained organic remains that could possibly be used to date individual components. And Phelps thought it likely that cultural features were preserved at the site. Despite the archae- ological potential at Barber Creek, no further field work was performed there for nearly twenty years.
The site is heavily wooded and, with the exception of a modern canal cut through the site's eastern edge, has experienced no recent disturbance Figure 2. The goals of the summer field work were fairly straightforward.
Site boundaries needed to be deter- mined. Phelps thought the site's limits corres- ponded to those of the dune, but this remained conjecture. Site integrity and stratigraphy also needed to be evaluated, particularly regarding the possible presence of intact early Holocene remains. Conven- tional archaeological methods were used to address both of these goals. Site limits were established by extensive shovel testing, while trench excavation was used to assess site stratigraphy and integrity.
Because analysis is ongoing, this article provides a preliminary description of results. Field Work Mapping and extensive shovel testing of the sand ridge were our first tasks at Barber Creek. The site is situated on a northwest-southeast trending, asym- metrical landform that slopes gently to the northwest and more so to the southeast, where the highest part of the dune is located. Likewise, the northern slope of the dune is somewhat steeper than the southern slope, which abuts the floodplain of Barber Creek.
Ninety-nine shovel tests were dug at approximate m intervals across the sand ridge. Shovel tests 60 cm in diameter were excavated in cm levels to a depth of 1 m, and fill was dry-screened through nested Vi-in. Artifacts were recovered from almost every shovel test, generally less than 50 per test. Ceramic types include Deep Creek Phelps bMt. Pleasant Phelpsand Hanover South pottery. A very few steatite sherds were recovered.
Flaking debris, primarily quartz, was also common. With the exception of one point fragment, no formal stone tools were identified in the shovel tests. While distributional analysis of the artifacts remains incomplete, two conclusions can be drawn with regard to the shovel testing.
First, the site extends almost continuously along the length of the dune. The few shovel tests dug in the pasture at the northern base of the dune suggest little, if any, stratigraphic integrity away from the dune although the floodplain to the south was not shovel tested.
Assuming that site bound- aries correspond to the limits of the sand dune, then the maximum east-west extent of the site is no more than 30 m in either direction beyond the utility company property lines. In any case, the vast majority of the site has apparently been shovel tested.
Second, excellent cul- tural stratigraphy exists along the length of the dune. Even though shovel tests were excavated in rather thick cm levels, the basic stratigraphic pattern emerged across the landform. Ceramic artifacts were present in the upper two levels of each shovel test, while stone artifacts with no pottery were present in the lower two levels.
Based upon the shovel testing results, a decision was made in the field to conduct more formal excavations in the south-central portion of the site, a location of Figure 2. Barber Creek site wooded areafacing south. Consequently, ten 2-m squares were hand excavated forming two parallel trenches perpendicular to the length of the site.
Each square was subdivided into four lxl-m units. The prin- cipal excavation technique used at Barber Creek was flat-shovef skimming coupled with hand trowelling within cm arbitrary levels. As with the shovel tests, all fill was screened through nested T4-in. Particular effort was made to uncover diagnostic artifacts in situ in the presumed Archaic levels of each unit. Stratigraphy The site's archaeological stratigraphy can be sum- marized as follows. Three soil zones were identified that are most likely pedogenic manifestations of a relatively homogeneous sand deposit.
Zone 1, from ground surface to roughly 25 cm below, is a very dark grayish-brown loamy sand capped with undecayed humus. Woodland period artifacts are sporadically found throughout Zone 1. Zone 2, from 25 cm to between 80 and 90 cm below surface, is a dark yellowish-brown fine sand that grades into yellowish-brown very fine sand. Woodland and Archaic period artifacts occur in stratigraphic order within the upper and lower portions of Zone 2, respectively.
The darker color of the upper portion of Zone 2 may be an organic stain derived from a Woodland midden. Woodland artifacts are particularly concentrated between 25 and 30 cm below surface, at the interface of Zones 1 and 2.

Though originally a kind of dance music, jazz has been a major part of popular music, and has also become a major element of Western classical music. Jazz has roots in West African cultural and musical expression, and in African American music traditions including blues and ragtime, as well as European military band music.
The earliest jazz bands adopted much of the vocabulary of the blues, including bent and blue notes and instrumental "growls" and smears otherwise not used on European instruments. Jazz's roots come from the city of New Orleans, Louisianapopulated by Cajuns and black Creoles, who combined the French-Canadian culture of the Cajuns with their own styles of music in the 19th century. Large Creole bands that played for funerals and parades became a major basis for early jazz, which spread from New Orleans to Chicago and other northern urban centers.
Though jazz had long since achieved some limited popularity, it was Louis Armstrong who became one of the first popular stars and a major force in the development of jazz, along with his friend pianist Earl Hines. Armstrong, Hines, and their colleagues were improvisers, capable of creating numerous variations on a single melody. Armstrong also popularized scat singingan improvisational vocal technique in which nonsensical syllables vocables are sung.
Armstrong and Hines were influential in the rise of a kind of pop big band jazz called swing. Swing is characterized by a strong rhythm section, usually consisting of double bass and drums, medium to fast tempo, and rhythmic devices like the swung note, which is common to most jazz.
Swing is primarily a fusion of s jazz fused with elements of the blues and Tin Pan Alley. Swing became a major part of African American dance, and came to be accompanied by a popular dance called the swing dance.
Jazz influenced many performers of all the major styles of later popular music, though jazz itself never again became such a major part of American popular music as during the swing era. The later 20th-century American jazz scene did, however, produce some popular crossover stars, such as Miles Davis. In the middle of the 20th century, jazz evolved into a variety of subgenres, beginning with bebop. Bebop is a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, improvisation based on harmonic structure rather than melody, and use of the flatted fifth.
Bebop was developed in the early and mids, later evolving into styles like hard bop and free jazz. Country music is primarily a fusion of African American blues and spirituals with Appalachian folk musicadapted for pop audiences and popularized beginning in the s. The origins of country are in rural Southern folk music, which was primarily Irish and British, with African and continental European musics. Early hillbilly also borrowed elements of the blues and drew upon more aspects of 19th-century pop songs as hillbilly music evolved into a commercial genre eventually known as country and western and then simply country.
The roots of commercial country music are generally traced towhen music talent scout Ralph Peer recorded Jimmie Rodgers and The Carter Family. After World War IIthere was increased interest in specialty styles like country music, producing a few major pop stars.
Producers like Chet Atkins created the Nashville sound by stripping the hillbilly elements of the instrumentation and using smooth instrumentation and advanced production techniques. By the early part of the s, however, the Nashville sound had become perceived as too watered-down by many more traditionalist performers and fans, resulting in a number of local scenes like the Bakersfield sound.
A few performers retained popularity, however, such as the long-standing cultural icon Johnny Cash. In the early s, Haggard was also part of outlaw countryalongside singer-songwriters such as Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.
The s also saw the development of alternative country performers like Uncle Tupelowho were opposed to the more pop-oriented style of mainstream country. At the beginning of the s, rock-oriented country acts remained among the best-selling performers in the United States, especially Garth Brooks. By the end of the s, he had had several hits, and helped pave the way for contemporaries like Wynonie Harris and John Lee Hooker.
Motown Records became highly successful during the early and mids for producing music of black American roots that defied racial segregation in the music industry and consumer market. Music journalist Jerry Wexler who coined the phrase "rhythm and blues" once said of Motown: "[They] did something that you would have to say on paper is impossible. They took black music and beamed it directly to the white American teenager.
Visual representation was central to Motown's rise; they placed greater emphasis on visual media than other record labels. Many people's first exposure to Motown was by television and film. Motown artists' image of successful black Americans who held themselves with grace and aplomb broadcast a distinct form of middle-class blackness to audiences, which was particularly appealing to whites. Soul music is a combination of rhythm and blues and gospel which began in the late s in the United States.
It is characterized by its use of gospel-music devices, with a greater emphasis on vocalists and the use of secular themes. The s recordings of Ray CharlesSam Cooke and James Brown are commonly considered the beginnings of soul. Charles' Modern Sounds records featured a fusion of soul and country music, country souland crossed racial barriers in music at the time.
By the late s, Atlantic recording artist Aretha Franklin had emerged as the most popular female soul star in the country. The social and political ferment of the s inspired artists like Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield to release albums with hard-hitting social commentary, while another variety became more dance-oriented music, evolving into funk.
Despite his previous affinity with politically and socially-charged lyrical themes, Gaye helped popularize sexual and romance-themed music and funk,  while his 70s recordings, including Let's Get It On and I Want You helped develop the quiet storm sound and format. Scott-Heron's Proto-rap work, including " The Revolution Will Not Be Televised " and Winter in Americahas had a considerable impact on later hip hop artists,  while his unique sound with Brian Jackson influenced neo soul artists.
By the end of the s, most music genres, including soul, had been disco -influenced. Bythe concept of popular music crossover became inextricably associated with Michael Jackson. Thriller saw unprecedented success, selling over 10 million copies in the United States alone.
Bythe album captured over gold and platinum awards and was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the best-selling record of all-timea title it still holds today. Janet Jackson collaborated with former Prince associates Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on her third studio album Control ; Together (Refined Mix) - Various - House II House - Mellow 1 (CD) album's second single " Nasty " has been described as the origin of the new jack swing sound, a genre innovated by Teddy Riley.
Her hit soundtrack The Bodyguardspent 20 weeks on top of the Billboard Hotsold over 45 million copies worldwide and remains the best-selling soundtrack album of all time.
Hip hop soul and neo soul developed later, in the s. Typified by the work of Mary J. BligeR. The latter is a more experimental, edgier, and generally less mainstream combination of s and s-style soul vocals with some hip hop influence, and has earned some mainstream recognition through the work of D'AngeloErykah BaduAlicia Keysand Lauryn Hill.
Pop Music Together (Refined Mix) - Various - House II House - Mellow 1 (CD) a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form during the mids in the United States and the United Kingdom. During the s and s, pop music encompassed rock and roll and the youth-oriented styles it influenced. Rock and pop remained roughly synonymous until the late s, after which pop became associated with music that was more commercial, ephemeral, and accessible.
Although much of the music that appears on record charts is seen as pop music, the genre is distinguished from chart music. Indie popwhich developed in the late s, marked another departure from the glamour of contemporary pop music, with guitar bands formed on the then-novel premise that one could record and release their own music without having to procure a record contract from a major label.
The s are commonly remembered for an increase in the use of digital recordingassociated with the usage of synthesizerswith synth-pop music and other electronic genres featuring non-traditional instruments increasing in popularity.
Inresearchers at the University of California, Irvineconcluded that pop music has become 'sadder' since the s. The elements of happiness and brightness have eventually been replaced with the electronic beats making the pop music more 'sad yet danceable'.
Clarkson and Justin Timberlake have both been nominated five times, more than any other artist, though Clarkson is the only artist to have the most solo albums nominated. Rock's exact origins and early influences have been hotly debated, and are the subjects of much scholarship. Though squarely in the blues tradition, rock took elements from Afro-Caribbean and Latin musical techniques. Black-performed rock and roll had previously had limited mainstream success, but it was the white performer Elvis Presley who first appealed to mainstream audiences with a black style of music, becoming one of the best-selling musicians in history, and brought rock and roll to audiences across the world.
The s saw several important changes in popular music, especially rock. Many of these changes took place through the British Invasion where bands such as The BeatlesThe Whoand The Rolling Stones became immensely popular and had a profound effect on American culture and music.
These changes included the move from professionally composed songs to the singer-songwriterand the understanding of popular music as an artrather than a form of commerce or pure entertainment. Rock was at the forefront of this change. In the early s, rock spawned several subgenres, beginning with surf. Surf was an instrumental guitar genre characterized by a distorted sound, associated with the Southern California surfing youth culture. The counterculture was a movement that embraced political activism, and was closely connected to the hippie subculture.
The hippies were associated with folk rockcountry rockand psychedelic rock. AllMusic editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine attributes The Beatles' shift toward introspective songwriting in the mids to Bob Dylan's influence at the time. Psychedelic rock was a hard-driving kind of guitar-based rock, closely associated with the city of San Francisco.
Though Jefferson Airplane was the only local band to have a major national hit, the Grateful Deada country and bluegrass-flavored jam bandbecame an iconic part of the psychedelic counterculture, associated with hippies, LSD and other symbols of that era.
Following the turbulent political, social and musical changes of the s and early s, rock music diversified. What was formerly a discrete genre known as rock and roll evolved into a catchall category called simply rock musicwhich came to include diverse styles developed in the US like punk rock. During the s most of these styles were evolving in the underground music scene, while mainstream audiences began the decade with a wave of singer-songwriters who drew on the deeply emotional and personal lyrics of s folk rock.
The same period saw the rise of bombastic arena rock bands, bluesy Southern rock groups and mellow soft rock stars. Beginning in the later s, the rock singer and songwriter Bruce Springsteen became a major star, with anthemic songs and dense, inscrutable lyrics that celebrated the poor and working class. Punk was a form of rebellious rock that began in the s, and was loud, aggressive, and often very simple. Punk began as a reaction against the popular music of the period, especially disco and arena rock.
American bands in the field included, most famously, The Ramones and Talking Headsthe latter playing a more avant-garde style that was closely associated with punk before evolving into mainstream new wave. In the s some punk fans and bands became disillusioned with the growing popularity of the style, resulting in an even more aggressive style called hardcore punk.
Hardcore was a form of sparse punk, consisting of short, fast, intense songs that spoke to disaffected youth, with such influential bands as Bad ReligionBad BrainsBlack FlagDead Kennedysand Minor Threat. Hardcore began in metropolises like Washington, D.
Hardcore, punk, and garage rock were the roots of alternative rocka diverse grouping of rock subgenres that were explicitly opposed to mainstream music, and that arose from the punk and post-punk styles.
In the United States, many cities developed local alternative rock scenes, including Minneapolis and Seattle. Heavy metal is characterized by aggressive, driving rhythms, amplified and distorted guitars, grandiose lyrics, and virtuosic instrumentation.
Heavy metal's origins lie in the hard rock bands who took blues and rock and created a heavy sound built on guitar and drums. Heavy metal remained, however, a largely underground phenomenon.
