    Drenched in Blog: Oates Watch 2008!

    But dude better hurry up. I'm also working on my own cartoon about my moustache. It's about a devastatingly striking part-time blogger from the suburbs that eats Lunchables and has a tattoo of a dead baby on his forearm. My moustache is my conscience...

    Five Songs for MLK Day

    On the Dreamer's day, we offer up five divergent songs about Martin Luther King and the holiday that bears his name. They are upbeat and somber, they are angry and hopeful, they are old and new. They are after the jump... 5. Ray Charles, "Abraham, M...

    Carrie Ann and the Apocalyptics: Strong Wind

    Carrie Ann Buchanan may have the best pure vocal tone in Houston. When properly used, her voice is truly an expressive instrument: It soars, rolls, swings and dives, melding an obvious jazz influence with a roots-rock soul. Strong Wind, the debut CD...

    Local Punks Something Fierce Try to Act Their Age - We Were the Young Americans

    Something Fierce guitarist/singer Steven Garcia and bassist Nikki Sevven sit, sans drummer Andrew Keith, at a table in Rudyard's. "Montrose's Living Room" is a favorite work and play spot for the band, who often ply their Buzzcocks-inspired garage-p...

    Are You Hot Enough for Citizen Lounge? - All This Useless Beauty

    Ever had a doorman tell you and your friends, "Sorry, guys, the club is full? " Well, we hate to be the ones to tell you this, but that's just a nice way of saying, "You're not quite hot enough to get in here." Yep. It sucks. It's occupational co...

    The Mighty Orq

    The Mighty Orq is a living, breathing piece of Texas's musical heritage. Although the band's music is firmly steeped in the dive-bar blues and boogie-rock of such legends as ZZ Top and Stevie Ray, Orq applies a fresh sense of melody and plenty of po...

    Golem

    Jewish and Eastern European ethnic-based music has become one of the decade's unlikeliest and liveliest strains of indie-rock. Much closer to the raucous gypsy-wedding reels of Gogol Bordello than the orchestral serenity of DeVotchKa, New York's Go...

    Davie Allan & the Arrows, 3 Balls of Fire

    When pressed for an answer, Davie Allan readily admits, "I was never on a motorcycle!" That's a brave confession for the man Rolling Stone calls the "undisputed boss hog of biker-movie soundtracks." Allan is also the undisputed king of fuzz guitar, ...

    Leslie & the LY's

    They're festive, bright-knit garments in solid colors or, at their jazziest, maybe an animal print. Their most distinguishing characteristic, though, is a neckline crowded with all manner of shiny baubles, mainly rhinestones and bugle beads. And the...

    A New Official State Song for Texas? - A case for a new or different, anyway state song

    Florida did something unusual recently. Shocking, I know, but this wasn't unusual because it happened in the Sunshine State, rather because it happened at all. Last month, the state adopted a new official song, "Florida (Where the Sawgrass Meets the...

    Hot Chip: Made in the Dark

    London's Hot Chip has a well-deserved reputation as a stellar live act that can sell out large clubs and draw huge festival crowds, but the band has struggled to make a killer record that exemplifies its members' vast studio-equipment knowledge. Pre...

    Rap's Rapidly Vanishing Female MC - The Why Chromosome

    In the ever-declining market of hip-hop, it's becoming more and more apparent that one of its greatest losses may be its estrogen count. Ten years ago, female rappers were steadily gaining on the success of their male counterparts. Lil' Kim and F...
