    Riff Tiffs, Tontons, Fat Tony, Lisa's Sons

    All too often, local talent goes unnoticed by most Houstonians, so a big venue such as Warehouse Live hosting a slew of local bands is both a rare treat and an opportunity for those bands to really turn some heads (and sell some T-shirts). Expect lo...

    Lil Wayne: Tha Carter III

    Destined to be a stoner classic, Tha Carter III should silence critics who think Lil Wayne can't make a cohesive album. His vision and self-confidence have improved exponentially since the humorless mish-mash of styles that was Tha Carter II. III is...

    My Morning Jacket: Evil Urges

    My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James claims the overall theme of Evil Urges, his band's fifth album, is one of moral confusion. But after a few listens, the most mystifying thing about the record is its vast sonic landscape. The 14-track masterpiece...

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: An Open Letter to Ed Shane, Publisher of Best In Texas

    nelo CD release

    Mp3: Arthur Yoria's "The Libyans"

    Houston pop-rock king Arthur Yoria is giving away a new song called "The Libyans." As usual, it's catchy as hell, but Yoria's skillz in the studio continue to develop. The spare, skeletal intro blossoms into something as spacious, big-sky and vaultin...
