    Rusted Shut: Hot Sex EP

    As the gentrification of downtown and surrounding areas continues, the days when one could walk out of the abandoned evening and watch three lunatics turn a miscellaneous dive bar into an aural torture chamber for a hostile "crowd" of ten seem long ...

    Doll Parts: Mydolls - Amid Noise and Smoke, legendary Houston post-punks reunite

    In the late 1980s, on the Galveston Bay side of the island, my radio receiver just barely picked up KPFT's Montrose-generated signal. Monday nights at 10 p.m., armed with two 90-minute tapes, I would hit "record" as soon as Dayglo Abortions kicked...

    Metallica's Death Magnetic - Fade to Plastic via Guitar Hero III

    I have not yet actually heard Metallica's totally badass new album, because I am way too busy living it, tearing off magnificent spider-fingered runs during the manic breakdown in "My Apocalypse" on my doofy-looking plastic guitar, which corresponds ...

    One of the hottest topics in Americana these days is the sizzling Cajun roots-music scene three hours east in Lafayette. As good as young bands like the Red Stick Ramblers, the Lost Bayou Ramblers and the Pineleaf Boys are, they owe a huge debt to B...

    Bring Me the Horizon

    Man, young people today are morbid. Take British five-piece Bring Me the Horizon, whose new album is called Suicide Season and features images of a girl clasping a knot of internal organs and the band dripping blood from their frowning, sneering mou...

    Dave Alvin

    Dave Alvin has been one of the enduring pillars of American roots music for the past 30 years. One reason the seasoned Californian remains evergreen is his knack for reinvention and reinterpretation; Alvin never lets his massive catalog or his stage...

    AC/DC: Black Ice

    AC/DC's first disc in eight years, the 15-song Black Ice, is also the longest in the Australians' 33-year career. Rip out much of its lazy middle third, and it starts approaching For Those About to Rock levels of goodness. Which means that if you, u...

    Eric Taylor: Hollywood Pocketknife

    There's a great story about Eric Taylor being intoxicated at a party a few years back when one of our local folkies was expounding ad infinitum about "being on the road." The guy went on and on until, according to my sources, Taylor finally had enou...

    Bloc Party: Intimacy

    Transitioning from overhyped buzz generator to perpetual powerhouse ain't easy, even for figures as charismatic as the Bloc Party men; the strain shows on the Brits' third LP. "Ares" is the sound of a band trying too hard, albeit with assists from s...

    Aftermath: TV on the Radio at House of Blues

    It's troubling why I don't enjoy Alkaline Trio's newer albums. Everything through Good Mourning is lovely, but the last two not so much. But why not? The band hasn't changed. Its two original songwriters, Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano, are still behi...
