    Playbill - Tori Amos

    Tori Amos's new release, Strange Little Girls, is a collection of covers, to which Amos hopes to give feminine voice through 13 alter egos, or "characters." No one knows exactly what to call this beast, as it begs comparisons to everything from k.d. ...

    Minibill - Freedy Johnston

    For a songwriter whose lyrics dwell on anxiety and loneliness, Freedy Johnston's music is exuberantly melodic. Full of power chords, Johnston's new CD, Right Between the Promises (Elektra), is a delightful rush of guitar pop laced with a couple of da...

    Wizard of Boz - Boz Scaggs evolves along with his beloved R&B

    Like one of his ballad's gently lolling melodies, William Royce "Boz" Scaggs takes an easygoing approach to recording. Never one to give in to a timetable's pressure, the pop-soulster drops an album at his own pace. And when his distinct voice return...

    Be Cool - Elmore Leonard finds fodder for fiction in the Stone Coyotes, a real-life rock and roll band

    School Daze - Pot Roast's Sebastian Ayus dishes out open-ended jams and bleary-eyed Texas history

    I Want My M(ontrose) TV! - Video killed the radio bars, at least in Montrose

    Playbill - The Butthole Surfers

    As Neil Young cogently observed in punk's wake, "It's better to burn out than to fade away." The Butthole Surfers, one of the more anarchic units to Econoline across America in the 1980s, seemed prime candidates for the former. After all, Buttholes s...

    Playbill - Robbie Fulks

    If you think Robbie Fulks is just the court jester of alt-country, think again. There's nary a funny song on Couples In Trouble, as the title implies. In fact, thematically it's a rather dour affair. But that hardly prevents it from being one of th...

    Minibill - Albert & Gage

    From George Jones and Tammy Wynette to Richard and Linda Thompson, male-female duets are one of popular music's most delightful permutations. And the Austin-based duo of Christine Albert & Chris Gage easily slot right in with the best. Their vocals i...

    Minibill - Bianca DeLeon

    It's fun to set a cross-country car journey to the music of the regions you pass through. John Prine should be played on a loop as you pass through Illinois and Western Kentucky, with "Paradise" cranked in Muhlenberg County. Western Tennessee slides ...

    Minibill - The Magnetic IV

    Tremolo-laden guitars and crashing cymbals are surf music's hallmarks, designed to re-create the motion of the ocean and breakers smashing on the sand. Houston's Magnetic IV have this sound down pat, and they add a few new tricks of their own. The ba...

    Prime Meridian - Steve Forbert escapes the "new Dylan" tag and makes his own name.

    To borrow a phrase from the man himself, just what kinda guy is Steve Forbert? Nearly 25 years ago he was the latest "new Dylan," thanks to his battered acoustic guitar, harp on a rack and gravelly voice seasoned beyond its years. By his second album...
