    Slaid Cleaves: Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away

    Slaid Cleaves has always had an interesting musical niche. Folkies and the Texas music crowd alike swoon over the laconic Yankee-turned-Texan whose music always seems like it was made for rainy days and stormy nights. Everything You Love Will Be Tak...

    Dustin Welch: Whisky Priest

    Odds are most people familiar with Dustin Welch's background -- his dad is acclaimed writer/performer Kevin Welch -- probably thought Welch's debut album would aim for the center of the singer-songwriter market. No way. Backed by his regular band of...

    Ghostland Observatory

    The story of Ghostland Observatory is of one man who knows his way around a synthesizer and another who is a natural showman. Sequencer-obsessed beat wizard Thomas Turner demonstrates an innate skill for balancing simple but transfixing synth parts ...

    Return to Radartown - "Credibility Scare" alumnus Mark Germino plugs in after seven years.

    Mark Germino was part of the vaunted Nashville Class of '84, termed "The Great Credibility Scare" when major labels suddenly signed unknowns Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith, Vince Gill and Germino to record deals. It's been almost seven yea...

    Slim Thug: Boss of all Bosses

    The chief criticism of Slim Thug's 2005 debut LP, Already Platinum, was that with a majority of the tracks' production credits going to the Neptunes, he had wandered too far away from his fan base. Objectively, the album was solid -- "I Ain't Heard ...

    Tennessee Pushers - Old Crow Medicine Show's new CD of original material as rough-edged as their traditional covers

    Consider Old Crow Medicine Show's big source of inspiration (prewar blues and string-band music) and business model (a leap from busker to recording artist that brought the responsibility of making a new album every couple years), and you can imagin...

    Shake a "Legg" - An odd Dallas dance has completely taken over Main Street.

    It seems natural to assume that having a foul-smelling appendage would be the pits, but if the popularity of the GS Boyz' quirky, dance-along smash single "Stanky Legg" on downtown's rap-centric Main Street drag is any indication, gamey gams are the...

    Dear Sy~3nc3

    First things first. Peekaboo Theory is not TV on the Radio. Granted, some people might notice a similarity or two between the Houston and Brooklyn bands. Both play an intense, electronically augmented brand of guitar rock that draws from a vast r...

    Lucero

    It's difficult not to be charmed by Lucero. If the works by and about this Tennessee quartet have been painting a true-to-life portrait, the amicable bunch is likely to both drink and play until the bar closes, then squeeze in a bit more time for ea...

    Robin Thicke, Jennifer Hudson

    That Robin Thicke could become a top name in R&B is proof anything's possible in the magical world of pop music. A clean-cut white boy with a pop-culture family tree (he's the son of Growing Pains paterfamilias Alan), Thicke nonetheless has a serious...

    Searching for Signal

    The four (very) young men who comprise Searching for Signal think of themselves as a melodic post-rock group. There is definitely a slightly dreamy aspect to their songs, complete with moody atmospherics akin to fellow Texans Explosions in the Sky. ...

    It's somehow appropriate that Fake Problems hails from Naples, Florida. A city known both as a winter home for rich retirees and the epicenter of Florida's mortgage crisis, Naples is incredibly boring for anyone making less than six figures -- and l...

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: Jody Nix Does Western Swing Right

    Nix is old-school, so old school he doesn't drink and the members of his band don't either, at least not when they're on the road with him. He harkens back to a more innocent time when the Saturday-night dance was what people looked forward to all we...
