    MP3: Jackie Wilson and Laverne Baker, Like You've Never Heard Them Before

    The official version of "Think Twice" barely dented the pop charts in 1966, though it was something more of an R&B hit. This NSFW version, recorded just for fun at the end of a recording session, was never even released. And given that the two of t...

    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...

    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....

    Marcia Ball: Peace, Love & BBQ

    A stalwart specialist in Gulf Coast blues/R&B/zydeco, Marcia Ball is already familiar to Texas audiences for her clear-toned vocals and pounding piano -- the imaginary musical daughter of Irma Thomas and Professor Longhair. And though she rarely dev...

    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...

    Grand Theft Auto X: The Screwston Chronicles

    As many if not most of my literally dozens of longtime readers know, it's safe to say that I am not a fan of the vast bulk of Houston radio. Outside of KACC's unrepentant rock from the saltgrass prairie down in Alvin, occasional moments of clarity o...

    Smoke, Mirrors and Rainbows - Overcoming chronic Radiohead fatigue

    Dear Radiohead, It pains me to say this, but I'm afraid that, unlike several thousand of my fellow Houstonians, as well as people from all over Southeast and Central Texas, I won't be attending your concert this Saturday in The Woodlands. Let me ...

    Lelia Rodgers's Matagorda Island Discs

    This week's Matagorda Island Discs comes to us from Lelia Rodgers. Officially, she's the owner of Rudyard's Pub, but if America was a monarchy, she'd also be the Duchess of North Montrose. "My first album was a greatest hits compilation (Time Pie...

    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...

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

    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...
