    Cat Power & Dirty Delta Blues, with Appaloosa

    Cat Power kicks off her new CD, Jukebox (Matador), with her remake of John Kander & Fred Ebb's standard "Theme from New York, New York," but given the track's sultry, Stax-y R&B makeover and coolly rumbling keyboards, perhaps she should call her ver...

    Big Sam's Funky Nation

    A dancing bear of a man, Big Sam Williams is a nose tackle-size New Orleans trombonist and veteran of an apprenticeship in the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. The Funky Nation, his eight-piece band, is far less traditional than the Double-D Double-B. Based...

    Fuck Buttons: Street Horrrsing

    Oh, Fuck Buttons. Fucking Fuck Buttons. So hard, getting past that name. At least Fuck Wolf, amazingly, was already taken. (Fuck Wolf's label site says they create an "aural douche that will leave [you] salivating," a mixed metaphor so rich it had t...

    Nine Inch Nails: Ghosts I-IV

    Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor makes the most of his recent hard-won freedom on the two-disc, all-instrumental Ghosts I-IV. It's the kind of record Interscope probably wouldn't have allowed Reznor to release when he was under contract -- not ...

    Bettye LaVette's an old soul, through and through

    "Hopefully when I see you, I'll have this little Grammy thing," Bettye LaVette says, calling from a scratchy phone line two weeks ago. (She won't have it, however: The award for Best Contemporary Blues Album ended up going to J.J. Cale and Eric Clap...

    Byron Dean's Matagorda Island Discs - (In which locals sound off on the ten records they would take to Matagorda Island, the nearest major unpopulated sandbar to Houston.)

    In our second installment, Poor Dumb Bastard Byron Dean weighs in from his digs on the far northwest side: Ramones, It's Alive. This was my "mirror star" album -- I'd put it on and I'd be Joey Ramone... Buzzcocks, A Different Kind of Tension. ...

    SXSW: Fourteen Bands in Eight Hours

    As I set out Saturday night for the last of this year's SXSW, little was set in stone. My assigned bands were at venues unlikely to be merciful to rock journo trash with only a wristband adorning his arm. Meaning that this night would be one of gra...

    SXSW: Ending on a High Note with Darondo
