    Freddy Fender is 'El Bebop Kid'

    Has there ever been a more Houston-sounding music than that of Freddy Fender? Think about it. Songs like "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" and "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" were pan-Gulf Coastal music. Here you had a Mexican-American guy from th...

    Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend

    Call it an amendment to Godwin's Law: As reviews of Vampire Weekend accumulate, the probability they'll mention Paul Simon's Graceland approaches 100 percent. It's a lazy game of connect-the-dots, really. Graceland traces an MOR-shattering pilgrima...

    Various Artists: Juno: Music from the Motion Picture

    Too many movie tie-in collections put profits before cohesion. Tunes by widely disparate performers, most of whom just happen to record for companies affiliated with the film studio, wind up being tossed together willy-nilly in the hope that one of ...

    Billion Dollar Babies - Rappers and their ten-figure dreams

    Irrational exuberance is so widespread in hip-hop right now that Alan Greenspan might freak out -- provided he understands rap lyrics at all, that is. There's no two ways about it: Hip-hop sales stink. Album sales dropped 30 percent in 2007, a fi...

    Reverberations: Opening Up the Garage

    Hueston Independent Spit District - An evening with Houston's other, better-rapping H.I.S.D.
