    The Whigs: Mission Control|What Made Milwaukee Famous: What Doesn't Kill Us

    Mike Ness, with Jesse Dayton

    Doyle Bramhall Sr.

    Innovation in today's blues scene is hard to come by, so it's small wonder that Doyle Bramhall's Is It News was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Contemporary Blues category. Bramhall's credentials are super-solid: They're part of that gang of blue...

    Willie Nelson: One Hell of a Ride

    At 100 songs clocking in just shy of five hours, Sony's latest dip into Willie Nelson's fathomless catalog, a four-CD behemoth timed to coincide with the release of Joe Nick Patoski's bio Willie Nelson: An Epic Life (see Racket, page 51) and the Red...

    There's a Fly in My Soukous - Totally blending in at Club Kalahari

    Would Morrissey Approve

    Girl in a Coma is an all-female trio from San Antonio whose 2007 album Both Before I'm Gone is pleasingly versatile. "Their Cell" resembles the swirling pop of Cocteau Twins, while "Clumsy Sky" begins like a Cat Power lullaby before morphing into a...

    SXSW: Fourteen Bands in Eight Hours
