    Matthew Ryan

    Matthew Ryan's songs almost always deal with conflict -- often without resolution. In his incisively detailed lyrics, people struggle with themselves, lovers, family or society. Throughout, there are references to the valiant nature of love and pass...

    Nosaprise

    Nosaprise, the trebly-voiced poet-rapper born Nosa Ebedor, is the antithesis of Houston rap; at least, that's the skin-deep evaluation you'll hear about him from most. And we suppose the "Not Typical Houston" label is correct. After all, he's th...

    Mates of State

    Mates of State's patented keys-and-drums pop gets something of a makeover on their aptly titled fifth album, last month's Re-Arrange Us. Spouses Kori Gardner and Jason Hammel still swoon and overlap vocals every chance they get, but the crunchy vint...

    From the 1970s to the early '90s, Juneteenth at Miller Outdoor Theatre was the largest free blues festival in the world and one of the city's marquee live music events. Thousands of people, young and old, black, white and brown, would come to the ...

    Silver Jews - Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea www.silverjews.net

    Singer-songwriter David Berman is as much of an ironist in life as he is in art. Note that after landing in rehab following a Xanax overdose (an act with sardonic aspects of its own), he belatedly embraced Judaism -- a belief system he'd never taken...

    Usher : Here I Stand

    You really can't fault entertainers who claim "playa for life" status. At least they're being honest; everyone from Rod Stewart to video performer-turned-tell-all-author Karrine "Superhead" Steffans knows the promiscuous can't be reformed. Once you ...

    Spiritualized: Songs in A&E

    It took a stop in Cincinnati and a brush with death (unrelated incidents in this case) to bring Jason Pierce's latest Spiritualized project into focus. Pierce wrote much of Songs in A&E years ago, strumming the melodies on a vintage 1929 Gibson he p...

    The Last Shadow Puppets: The Age of the Understatement

    What Do Shepard Smith and Soulja Boy have in common? - Wack's here to tell you: more than you might expect

    If there's one thing the self-satisfied, liberal, tofu-munching, cappuccino-sipping, in vitro fertilization-utilizing coastal elite hate, it's Fox News. The Rupert Murdoch-owned home to such neoconservative mouthpieces as Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hann...
