    Glasnost: Great Divide EP

    Since the '80s, bands that have dared to cross-breed rock and dance music have been all too happy to let their synthesizers do the songwriting for them -- even the most successful ones like the Faint, the Bravery and the Killers. On its debut EP, Gre...

    Bonnie "Prince" Billy: Beware

    Beware isn't nearly as ominous as Will Oldham might want you to believe. Although its 13 tracks do gravitate toward themes of disappointment and disillusionment, it's with panache and, not infrequently, a bit of levity. Take, for example, "You Don't ...

    Girl in a Coma: Trio B.C.

    Armadillo World Headquarters - The Goode family's shrine to all things Texas could use a shootout or two.

    Texas Renegade is onstage at Goode's Armadillo Palace (5015 Kirby), but the most renegade thing about the San Marcos country-rockers is a solo by harmonica stud Kasey Klepfer that squirts its way to sampling Violent Femmes' "Blister in the Sun." ...
