    An Elevated Conversation with Perseph One and AndAcc - Oh Slippin'

    Perseph One, Houston's queen of experimental hip-hop, is a genius, or else she's bat-shit crazy. Either way, the Kansas City transplant has been a major player in the local underground music scene for a minute now. And with the help of longtime Hous...

    Chris Botti

    Although trumpeter Chris Botti is, by his own admission, neither a particularly daring improviser nor a bravura technician, he's carved out a highly lucrative niche in the jazz world by emphasizing melody and mood. Whether paying tribute to his Ita...

    Studemont Project, Million Year Dance, Peekaboo Theory, the Tontons

    By the time these four groups take the Warehouse studio stage, SXSW will mercifully be a distant memory -- the hangover may have even dissipated, but don't count on it -- and this partial reproduction of last week's Press-sponsored showcase at Austi...

    Vanilla Ice

    We can all easily think of 25 reasons Vanilla Ice should stop making music. After his song "Ice Ice Baby" came out in 1990, the first hip-hop single to hit No. 1 on the pop charts, he became the butt of a million jokes. America took back its love wi...

    Moody Blues

    During discussions about the recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Howard Stern's Sirius radio show, he mentioned one listener who writes him weekly asking why the Moody Blues aren't in yet. And while the shock jock certainly isn't...

    The Dodos

    For all the permutations of acoustic roots music the experimental neo-folk movement has produced, the style's gravitation toward wispy, soft-rock redux can leave a listener feeling a bit challenged in terms of musical muscle. Not so with the partner...

    The Last Word from the Press on SXSW 2008 - We swear, we're done now

    Every year South by Southwest careens closer to lowercase status. Rather than simply denoting the panels and performances of the music festival proper, its signature abbreviation/acronym has become shorthand for the whirl of parties and dusk-till-da...

    Dolly Parton: Backwoods Barbie

    At 62 years old, Dolly Parton is beyond legendary proportions. Don't laugh -- in fact, say what you want about her appearance, chances are she's already beaten you to the punch. Parton's latest effort, Backwoods Barbie, is as self-aware as it is rif...

    Willie Nelson: A Moment of Forever

    Co-produced by Kenny Chesney, Moment of Forever seeks to modernize Willie Nelson's iconic sound by inserting the Red Headed Stranger's distinct vocals into a series of flush, Nashville-tinted arrangements. A decidedly bleak collection laced with dar...

    Honeydripper Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

    American film's maverick king of low-budget realism, John Sayles follows his usual do-it-yourself/do-it-cheap formula on Honeydripper, focusing his camera on the beginnings of rock and roll in a fictional Alabama backwater town. Set in 1950 (around ...

    Del The Funkee Homosapien: 11th Hour

    Del The Funkee Homosapien was once an outer-space hip-hop trailblazer, focused on absurdist rhymes and sci-fi storytelling. Though a cousin of Ice Cube and onetime member of the Da Lench Mob, he abandoned his mentors' gangsta tropes but maintained t...

    Shawn Phillips Is Stranger Than Fiction - Meet Navy rescuer and true rock and roll Zelig

    Perhaps no one has made more contributions to rock and roll, with so little recognition, than Shawn Phillips. No less than late Bay Area super-promoter Bill Graham once called the Fort Worth native the "best-kept secret in the music business." P...
