    Rap-A-Lot's J Prince Wins SEA Image Award

    He's made his share of controversial headlines, but Rap-A-Lot Records founder and CEO J Prince is a seminal figure (arguably the seminal figure) in the development of Houston rap and Southern rap at large. Without Rap-a-Lot, which Prince founded in 1...

    Young Jeezy's Crack Course in Recession Politics

    And it's no gimmick. Jeezy translates this moment's uncertain economy ("Lord knows I can't wait 'til this recession's over/ Gas is higher than me") and political hope ("Obama for mankind/ We ready for damned change") into the most poignantly politica...

    XM Nation: Catching Up and Moving On

    Well, it finally happened. I suppose it was inevitable, although I was starting to wonder. (I know some of you probably were too.) But it looks like last weekend's Tom Petty show really did cure me of my summer-long case of classic-rock fever. With t...

    The Not-So-New Kids on the Block - Still Hangin' Tough?

    They're baaaaaaack. New Kids on the Block have a new album (The Block), a new hit single ("Single," featuring Ne-Yo) and a reunion tour that croons its way to Toyota Center Thursday. They have a new look, too: late-thirties. Three of the five Kids --...

    B L A C K I E: Wilderness of North America

    When B L A C K I E showed up on the local indie-rock and underground-rap scenes, Houston was pretty impressed. The MC/producer born Michael LaCour twists the laws of the metronome into abstract beats to back his equally oddly timed lyrics. The formu...

    Northern Soul: Portugal. The Man - Straight outta Sarah Palin country

    No one would blame John Baldwin Gourley if he never listened to oldies again. That's all the frontman of Portugal. The Man listened to when he was growing up -- at least until he was old enough to drive himself. Despite this oversaturation, the cl...

    This One Time at BandCamp

    This is starting to sound like a broken record. But maybe this time it'll be different. Isn't that what they always say? The topic at hand, once again, is how to "fix" Houston's chronically underperforming local music scene, like it's a Ford picku...

    Opeth, Baroness, High on Fire

    Along with Mastodon, Kylesa and Harvey Milk, Baroness is part of a mini-wave of terrific metal bands currently roaring out of Savannah, Georgia. The band's mix of psychedelia, doom and raw '70s riffage makes it one of the most potent combos in conte...

    Ting Tings

    Brit duo Ting Tings' fusion of club culture and hipster-rock seems to have a single purpose: to make KC and the Sunshine Band sound a little dangerous, or maybe just British. With this year's We Started Nothing, Katie White and Jules de Martino weap...

    Jack's Mannequin

    On Jack's Mannequin's optimistic new single "The Resolution," vocalist/pianist/songwriter Andrew McMahon sings, "I'm alive, but I don't need a witness, to know that I survived." The 26-year-old could just as easily be referencing the fact that he's ...

    Jenny Lewis: Acid Tongue

    At this point, it's pretty hard to make music about the tension between sin and redemption without sounding hokey. That whole church thing had already been reinvented a zillion times (see: Cash, Cave, Kanye) before Jenny Lewis took a dusty side trip...

    LL Cool J: Exit 13

    On his 13th album, hip-hop lothario LL Cool J comes out swinging by waging war against naysayers. It's a fiery opening; yet much like the current war in Iraq, some battles are long overdue for a screeching halt -- especially since his bravado is now...
