    Matt Costa: Unfamiliar Faces

    Despite the name, the faces on this SoCal singer-songwriter's sophomore disc aren't exactly unfamiliar: There's the Shins, there's Josh Rouse and, perhaps most of all, there's Jack Johnson, who signed Matt Costa to his Brushfire label and has had Co...

    Al Green: Lay It Down

    Most producers who supervise reclamation projects for aging stars make the mistake of trying to contemporize the artist's sound -- the equivalent of dressing your eightysomething Uncle Jake like a 21st-century club kid. Not so Roots drummer Amir "?u...

    The Mother Truckers: Let's All Go to Bed

    A slight consonant shift in The Mother Truckers' name yields Them Other Truckers, and where the Austin quartet's 2006 debut Broke, Not Broken sagged in spots, Let's All Go to Bed exudes a feisty confidence that recalls, well, them other Truckers. (D...

    Robyn: Robyn

    Way back in 1996, Robyn reached the Top 10 with "Do You Know (What It Takes)." She followed it up a year later with another big hit, "Show Me Love." Then she disappeared. This comeback album by the thin-voiced but spunky singer, who's now 28, was or...

    Banda meets ska meets the Smiths in the sound of Pistolera - Pistolas y Corazn

    Writers hear all kinds of reasons -- some plausible, many contrived -- why bands spring to life. Few match that of Pistolera, perhaps New York's only fusion of the Smiths and Banda El Recodo, among many other trans-Rio Grande, trans-Atlantic fusions....

    Staying Cool at Joe Carmouche's Legends Jazz Cafe - Houston's new downtown jazz digs

    On the official list of Things That Are Cool, playing a mean jazz guitar is right near the top. Specifically, it's directly above "catching a rattlesnake with your bare hands" and directly below "punching a guy in the face who's been acting like a do...

    Bun B's II Trill

    Back in 1987, when Chad Butler and Bernard Freeman were first writing the rhymes that would become their debut cassette The Southern Way, neither one of them ever would have dreamed that their music would one day echo off the walls of a Louis Vuitton...

    The Science of Pop - Do we really need a formula for perfect music?

    A few years ago, a psychology lecturer at a British college came up with the formula for the "perfect" mood-lifting pop song. Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic posited a certain equation involving pitch, positive lyrics and serotonin levels that, when twea...

    Sizing up the summer's classic-rock scorecard - Season in the Sun

    Why You Say Pong?

    About a decade ago, Ed Hall staged sweaty, savage shows marked by the Austin trio performing in body paint, bizarro film projections second only to the Butthole Surfers and suffocating psych-punk that made the Black Angels sound like Donovan. Along w...

    Here's a new video from K-Rino. Great song and video. This guy is on a whole other level, and it's a shame he didn't get more shine in the big H-Town rap boom of 2005. Hell, after 20 years of steady, even expanding genius, I think they should put a s...

    Here's a new video for the song "Glowing Black" from local rockers Pale. The Edge-like chime of the guitars, Stephen Morris-esque high-hat hiss and four-on-the-floor kick-drum beat and cinematography are all very 1985, but that seems to be the hip re...
