    Aftermath: Jubal Lee Young at Under the Volcano

    Photos by Chris Gray He's hairy and laid-back, but Jubal Lee Young is hardly your average everyday limp-noodle folk singer. He prowls around while he's playing and he beats on his Martin guitar like it's a mastodon he's trying to kill with stick. H...

    Wax Museum: MP3s from Mark Putney, Clarence Green and Wild Honey

    Every now and then you stumble onto a song that blows your mind. That was the case when I first heard "Today's Man," and unfortunately all my hopes of discovering other 45s by Putney were squashed when I learned this was his solitary release as a sol...

    Tonight: Valient Thorr at Rudyard's

    "Exit Strategy" In reality, Valient Thorr is five hairy Southern dudes who have listened to a whole hell of a lot of Black Sabbath and Van Halen, but that doesn't diminish the ass-kicking, hair-raising power of the band's latest Volcom album, Immort...

    When Little Sisters Attack: Solange Sounds Off

    On her personal blog, The Hadley Street Journal, Solange vents about her frustrations with the music industry, then drops a link to a track entitled, "F*@k The Industry (Signed Sincerely)." The obviously mild-mannered composition lifts from Kanye's "...

    Solange: Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams

    Perhaps Solange knew the comparisons to big sister Beyonc were unavoidable, which is why she asks, "Let my star light shine on its own / I'm no sister, I'm just my God-given name" on the opening track for Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams. But...

    Houston's Nigerian-Born Battle-Rapper Godwon - Balls and His Word

    Competition drives hip-hop culture. Whether it be reputation, jewelry, cars or whatever, it doesn't matter. Yours has to be the realest, shiniest, most candy-painted, or else you're liable to be found suspect. It's the ruthless Tao of rap's Pooh, and...

    Superproducer Pharrell Williams is at Home in N.E.R.D. - The Nose Knows

    Name a pop music A-lister, and he or she has either worked with Pharrell Williams or probably wants to. Gwen Stefani, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg and Madonna all already have. Need more proof? But, as half of production team the ...

    Houston's Jazz History

    The Iguanas

    There was a time when the Iguanas seemed to be virtually in residence at Houston's Fabulous Satellite Lounge. The group's heady mixture of New Orleans funk, blues and Latin sounds was a perfect musical palette for the booty-shakin' denizens of the f...

    Janiva Magness

    Blues has more than its fair share of femmes fatale, from old-school shouters like Etta James and Koko Taylor to the more nuanced Marcia Ball and Tracy Nelson. It's been awhile since a new performer surfaced who could hold her own with those names, ...

    Eagles

    Critical respect has been a long time coming for the Eagles, who didn't exactly help their cause much with last year's mediocre double disc Long Road Out of Eden -- which, despite (or maybe due to) being available only at Wal-Mart, wound up as one o...

    The Verve: Forth

    After 1997's Urban Hymns proved to be a breakthrough for the Verve, frontman Richard Ashcroft went solo prematurely -- and was punished by having quite a bit of strong music go largely ignored. Now Ashcroft has the band back together, and on "Sit an...
