    Descendents Ascendant

    Some timing. Just when Green Day's lesser ilk have drained nearly every liter of urgency from punk's once-proud legacy, along comes a group of its more durable practitioners to apply defibrillator paddles to its lukewarm carcass. Those potential life...

    Only a speck of Houston in Austin... If my only job at this week's South by Southwest Music and Media Conference were to witness every showcase performance by a Houston artist, my efforts would amount to little more than a day's work. Houston's repre...

    Lucky Horseshoe - Are a praised CD and a slot at SXSW enough to make this band happy? Of course not.

    Somebody up there likes me, so they provide me with little accidents of grace. Horseshoe, 1996. That may be true in concept, but at the moment, Greg Wood, Horseshoe's burly lead singer, looks less like an accident of grace than a walking disaster...

    A Whole Lot Country - And quite a bit rock and roll add up to No Depression music

    Over the past several months, I've contributed stories every now and then to a bimonthly magazine called No Depression that takes as its subject matter the burgeoning field of "alternative country" music -- which is to say, music with recognizably "c...

    The Once and Future Dolemite - Rudy Ray Moore, the brotherman from another land, is still outta sight

    The first time I saw Rudy Ray Moore doing his act live, he was laying out a heavy hand of rude, raw, scatological humor. A big man who seems somehow more dark-skinned in person than he does on-screen, where he forever lives on as the B-grade blaxploi...

    God's Own Player

    The fact that pianist Cyrus Chestnut grew up surrounded by great music shouldn't come as much of a shock. Jazz isn't for everyone, after all, and a passion for the genre is often instilled in its purveyors at a young age. From there, a player is apt ...

    Latin, not Tejano... Blame it on Must-See TV, or maybe the winter blahs, but whatever the reason, the Fabulous Satellite Lounge was taking it on the chin when I arrived on an especially dead Thursday in February. By the time the opening act took the ...

    Rotation

    U2 Pop Island Remember when U2 was more a rock band than a high-tech concept? Come now, it wasn't that long ago. Think back to a simpler, more naive time, before a sound awash in experimental atmospherics; before the stage makeup, elaborate...

    Luscious Noise - The beat happy women of Luscious Jackson find a mellower groove

    With 1994's Natural Ingredients, Luscious Jackson immediately set themselves apart from virtually every other band on the current music scene. Inspired by New York's late '80s purveyors of punk and hip-hop, Luscious Jackson combined those two often p...

    Here Comes the Judd

    Three years ago, Wynonna Judd seemed set to become the new queen of country music. As half of the Judds, Wynonna crafted with mother Naomi a blend of earthy twang and slickness that helped reignite country's traditionalist movement in the early '80s....

    Back to Earth - Former Galactic Cowboy Dane Sonnier is having fun again -- with and without his spatula

    A Van for All Seasons - Van Morrison's getting older, grouchier and, with his latest CD, better again

    The news that there's a new Van Morrison CD out should be thrilling. But for some of us, there have been so many Morrison discs in the last year alone that it's a bit anticlimactic. Of course, it's a terrible thing to complain about too many Van...

    Sound Check

    Odd Man Out - Van Dyke Parks, the invisible legend of L.A. music, finally goes live

    Van Dyke Parks does not talk. He speaks, pronounces, proclaims, mumbles and grumbles, chuckles and chortles. But he does not simply talk to waste his words; every syllable has meaning, every breath great implication, every silence great weight. Weari...

    The Reason of Rimes - LeAnn Rimes has taken country music by storm. She's only 14. And that's the rub.
