    No Shame - Dr. Dog shrugs off faint praise.

    Future Islands

    North Carolina trio Future Islands calls its sound "post-wave," and it's a striking description: Crystalline synths and rusty drum-machine beats drift within the group's New Order-influenced compositions. Scene-stealing front man Sam Herring possesse...

    Lightnin' Hopkins Historical Marker Dedication

    For everyone who thinks the wheels of government only turn three speeds -- slow, slower and slowest -- we respectfully submit the case of one R. Eric Davis. One year ago, Davis was an average Houstonian who, like many others before him, was appalled ...

    Christopher Cross

    What was with all the flamingo imagery on Christopher Cross's albums, and just what the hell was between the moon and New York City that made us want to fall in love? The San Antonio native (and tight bro with Michael McDonald) was one of the '80s' g...

    Rocks Off And Black Congress Bury The Hatchet
