    Rick Trevio - Mi Son (Vanguard)

    In the early 1990s, a young Austin-born Texas A&M student and part-time country singer named Rick Trevio got the break of which every would-be Nashville darling dreams: discovery, major-label deal, stardom. By the tender age of 25, he had already sc...

    Playbill - Two Man Advantage

    Considering how splintered the rock biz has become in the past ten years, and particularly the punk genre, it was only a matter of time before Two Man Advantage came along. Indeed, micro-mini niches are de rigueur if you're a punk rocker in 2001. Hai...

    Sly Letter - These Autumn Skies (Self-released)

    From the get-go, there's something just not right with this record. The lead-in guitar jangle on "Better That Way" seems derived from 10,000 Maniacs. That's no criminal offense, but once the drab vocals begin spewing cryptic, introspective goo, it's...

    Sacred Blues - Blues 2 Joy writes a new testament for the devil's music

    Up on the stage, the lead guitarist snaps off a down and dirty blues riff on a Les Paul, his nimble fingers dancing up and down the fretboard. A drummer and bassist pound out a steady rhythm that supports two more smoking guitars and a screeching har...

    Depeche Mode - Saturday, July 14, at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, 2005 Lake Robbins Drive

    Trying to overcome the stigma of being a piece of retro '80s kitsch, Depeche Mode returns with something for everyone on its new album. Exciter is the band's first U.S. studio release since 1997's Ultra. To appease fans and still make "Music for the ...

    Yellowjackets - Wednesday, July 18, Sambuca Jazz Cafe, 909 Texas Avenue

    When the Yellowjackets grew out of Robben Ford's Charles Ford Blues Band in 1981, it looked like another short-lived fusion venture la Mahavishnu Orchestra. Sure enough, two years later Ford left the band in '83 to return to his first love: the blu...

    Revenge of the Nerds - Rainer Maria's twin solitudes protect and touch and greet each other

    Caithlin De Marrais is afraid she sounds like a dork. "You know how MTV has those shows that have little snippets of other music in it?" she sheepishly asks on the phone from her home in Connecticut. "Just recently, a song from our new album was on d...

    Racket - Not all pirates are bad

    Montrose Radio's backers thought of themselves as champions of liberty, but the FCC called them pirates. They were both right. Truth is, the pirates of the high seas have always gotten a bad rap. Though there were some bad apples among them, so were...

    Toni Price - Midnight Pumpkin (Antone's)

    Through four albums, Austin's Toni Price has meandered through a myriad of twists and turns -- and encountered the occasional dead end -- while dabbling with various styles of American roots music. She's sashayed through fields of bluegrass, lighted ...

    Crash Comfort - Soul Drunk Lingering Day (Seismic Music/Montrose)

    Fronted by former Twenty Mondays vocalist Ken Sheppard, Houston's Crash Comfort strives to make original and earnest rock on its debut CD. But while there are a number of bright spots in these 14 tracks, the overall impression is a faint one. Much o...

    Playbill - The Reverend Billy C. Wirtz

    New Orleans Juice - Saturday, July 14, Last Concert Cafe, 1403 Nance

    If you took the Big Easy in your hands and squeezed it into a cup, it would sound a lot like New Orleans Juice. There's a cup of funk, a couple of tablespoons of jazz, and a teaspoon or two of blues. But with NOJ, there's an outreach to the world at ...
