    Malcolm Holcombe

    Malcolm Holcombe's MySpace site is studded with fan comments like "your songs feed my soul," odd pronouncements indeed when addressed to a battered-spirit hillbilly poet who once had a reputation as an unpredictable, slightly dangerous performer. Y...

    Templars

    Before the term "aggro" was co-opted by cute hipsters, it was used to describe bands like Templars. Even after some 15 years in the trenches, the New York quartet remains one of the most menacing, important punk bands out there. Their songs are less...

    Al Stewart

    Though best known for a pair of '70s SoftSational Hits ("Year of the Cat," "Time Passages"), Scottish native Al Stewart should actually get props as an O.F.R.G. -- Original Folk Rock Gangsta. After all, one of his early songs was a nearly 19-minute...

    What Happened to Honky Tonk in Houston - Turn out the lights, the party's over

    When did Houston -- at least the Houston that lies inside the Beltway -- cease to be a honky-tonk town? First, let's define our terms. By "honky-tonk," I mean stone-cold, cry-in-your-beer, weeping country music on the order of "He Stopped Lovin' ...

    Drive-By Truckers: Brighter Than Creation's Dark

    Even devoted DBT fans may find the Alabama/Athens rockers' eighth album frustrating, or long-winded at the very least. It's 19 mostly acoustic, down-tempo songs spread over 75 dour, occasionally thrilling, minutes. Their trademark hard 'n' heavy cha...

    The Magnetic Fields: Distortion

    Following 1999's synth-less I, Magnetic Fields are back behind the keys on Distortion. The first half's only real standout is "California Girls," as the other tracks simply play into the band's established shtick. The second half shines, however, be...

    This is Care Bears on Fire, a Thurston Moore-lauded trio of 14-year-old New York City girls. They sound kind of like a slowed-down version of the Ramones, with a pubescent Kathleen Hanna on vocals. It's gritty. It's hip. It's not Hannah Montana. One ...
