    The Judy's Come Back - Just in time for SXSW, the Pearland New Wavers brush off the mothballs

    The Judy's are rehearsing. Live. Right now. This fact alone should be enough to send a certain subspecies of Texas music aficionado -- those who came of age in the late '70s and early '80s, when musicians fed up with rock's bloated arena excess stri...

    Archie Bell & the Drells: Tighten Up

    In a more perfect pop world, San Francisco label DBK Works' reissue of Archie Bell & the Drells' 1968 debut Tighten Up would help the Houston favorites jettison the one-hit wonder status that dogs them everywhere else. In retrospect, it's an underst...

    Anyone Else But Kimya Dawson - Coming to terms with the Juno soundtrack star

    Kimya Dawson looks legitimately terrified. "I'm totally weirded out," she announces to a sold-out, mashed-in afternoon crowd at Brooklyn's Southpaw. They're largely underage and entirely flush with adoration, and the singer both senses and fears thi...

    All in la Familia at Azteca's Bar and Grill - Fathers, sons and "Mustang Sally"

    It's a scientific fact that old white people love "Mustang Sally," claims Rich Latimer, of Houston's conveniently named Rich Latimer Band. "It's a party song -- people know it," says Latimer, whose band touches down at Azteca's Bar and Grill (22...

    Nile

    Everybody together now: "Anoint my phallus with the blood of the FALLEN!!" With that quaint lyric, South Carolina's Nile officially takes cock-rock to an all-new level. Possible latent menstruation envy aside, you gotta give Nile leader Karl Sanders...

    Pistolera

    Brooklyn-based Pistolera describes its music as "latin alt-folklrico," and sings entirely en espaol, but don't let that be a barrier. This quartet is filled with the energy, excitement and attitude that can only come from the border. On debut albu...

    Adam Levy

    Black Mountain

    Black Mountain is an anomaly among Canadian bands. For one thing, it has only five members, and they don't play highfalutin chamber-pop that requires the assistance of at least two dozen instrumentalists onstage. You can practically smell the weed o...

    Cryptacize

    Nobody familiar with Chris Cohen's harried guitar tactics from his Deerhoof days, or his brick-by-brick deconstruction of rock in the Curtains, should be taken aback by the organic weirdness of Cryptacize, yet another of his outfits (or is that outl...
