    Mp3: Studemont Project's "Mont Rose"

    I dunno, this track makes me nervous, and I guess that's the point seeing as how it's all about the ongoing Fat Cat developer's rape / destruction of Montrose. And I like the guitar interlude. But overall this feels too hectic and jittery and I'...

    Is Johnny Guitar Watson's "Telephone Bill" the First Houston Rap?

    What's the first rap song by a Houston artist? It's debatable but most cite a few records that came about between 1985 and 1987. But there's another much older often forgotten candidate - Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Telephone Bill." By 1980, when he...

    Muxtape Monday: African Diaspora

    Mr. Gnome, with Fired for Walking and Treehouse Project

    Drawing on a visceral mix of contrasting textures -- light/dark, soft/loud -- Cleveland, Ohio, duo Mr. Gnome recasts the epic menace of bands like Isis and Pelican. Nicole Barille's ethereal voice adds a softer element that's missing from the aforem...

    Northern State, with American Princes

    Maybe, maybe, maybe there's a small chance you haven't heard of Northern State, the N.Y.C. white girls who are, bar none, the indie world's top all-female rap crew -- if only by default. Sure, their early stuff was a little creaky. But their mike sk...

    Alicia Keys and Jordin Sparks

    Fire on the Strings Bluegrass Festival, featuring The Claire Lynch Band

    About 13 years ago, on a deep dark summer night, I was perhaps unwisely attempting to coax a 1979 Malibu Classic station wagon up and over Monteagle Mountain, halfway between Chattanooga and Nashville in southeastern Tennessee. I was tuned in to AM-...

    Culturcide: Gigs for an Imaginary Audience

    No Age: Nouns

    Everybody has a different definition of "indie rock." For this American dude who smoked mad weed and aimlessly wandered some Midwestern campus in the mid-'90s, it will always be about shattered pop buried in temperamental noise and lo-fi amateurism....

    An evening with perennial Houston street hustlers Big Body Click - Square Business

    There's something strangely endearing about someone selling you a hand-packaged, homemade CD. It may seem like just another ho-hum "artist" looking for a way to make ends meet. When you really think about it, though, the artist is trying make somet...

    What's in a Name? - Sammy's at 2016, now with less Sammie

    The size of a man's hands and feet is related to the size of his, er, penis, if you catch our drift. (Wink.) Or so claims singer Faye Robinson. "If a man has fat hands and long ol' feet," bellows Robinson during a Saturday-night performance of th...
