    Drenched in Blog: Mommie Dearest, 2008 Remix

    Apparently, last night she lost custody of her two boys to Kevin Federline, our generation's Kato Kaelin. You know, "right place/right time" celebrities. A "hostage" situation ensued, ending three hours later with America's Sweetheart being wheeled o...

    Get Lit: Sabbath Bloody Sabbath by Joel McIver

    And while they gave birth to thousands of six-string hopefuls who dutifully learned at least the opening chords to "Iron Man," "Paranoid," "War Pigs" and "Sweet Leaf," Sabbath - along with Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple - primarily set the stage for a ...

    Drenched in Blog: Radiohead Gets Nekkid!

    Whatever happened to normal music videos? These days all we see are things going backwards, crazy-ass French animation, and people making asses of themselves on treadmills. What became of the clips featuring pseudo-religious iconography and she-males...

    Drenched in Blog: Say Ya Want a Resolution?

    Last year's resolution to not engage in any homoerotic prose using florid and corrosive language didn't work. So for 2008, this blogger is resolving to not weep like a colicky infant when Albert Maysles, acclaimed director of Rolling Stones documenta...

    The Return of the Kashmere Stage band

    Maybe it's some mysterious cosmological force that, outside the movies, only allows storybook endings to happen around Super Bowl Sunday. However, this particular story had nothing to do with the undefeated New England Patriots allowing the 11th-hou...

    Balaclavas: Balaclavas (EP) Inferno (EP)

    Young experimental punk trio Balaclavas are part of the reason 2007 was a banner year for Houston indie rock. Released separately, last year's Balaclavas and Inferno EPs are close enough in tone, sound and time to effectively be two parts of a full-...

    Various Artists: The Great Debaters: Music From & Recorded for the Motion Picture

    Rare is the soundtrack that goes to the effort of soliciting original recordings, and rarer still is one that puts considerable thought into those recordings' direction. For The Great Debaters, a film about the 1935 debate team at Wiley College (a t...

    Cat Power - Jukebox

    It's easy to dismiss Jukebox, Cat Power's second covers CD, as Matador's lazy way of dealing with head kitty Chan Marshall's latest bout of writer's block, but any indie-rock hipster knows she always stuffs her live shows with other people's songs. ...

    Black Mountain: In the Future

    Rock nostalgia doesn't always result in great art, but it can sound pretty bitchin' blasting from a car stereo. In the Future, Canadian group Black Mountain's second album, provides further proof (after 2007 single "Druganaut") that for these five V...

    Kevin Devine, the Jealous Girlfriends

    Perhaps the only thing more damning than being hailed as the next Dylan is being perpetually stuck in the shadow of Conor Oberst. Such has been the fate of Kevin Devine, a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who deftly balances personal and political s...

    Steve Poltz

    Ask people about the ultra-prolific Steve Poltz, and one word keeps coming up: insane. It comes in several shades of meaning: "brilliant," "creative" and, well, "clinically nuts." One record-store clerk spoke about Poltz as though he were an undisco...

    Even in a city whose musical denizens have a well-documented propensity for band-hopping, Mlee Marie Suprean is an especially prolific co-conspirator. Her shimmering and coyly pretty voice, elegantly phrased guitar work and slightly skewed pop sensi...

    Dead Meadow

    "I can't tell if we're running from, or coming to," muses Dead Meadow singer/guitarist Jason Simon on the folky, elegiac "Ain't Got Nothing (To Go Wrong)," his decentered voice dripping with idiosyncratic weariness. He could easily be opening up to ...

    The Mars Volta take Manhattan - Bedlam at Terminal 5

    If there were a word that got at it better than "masturbatory," I'd use it, but there's not, so "masturbatory" it is. The Mars Volta have been onstage for two-and-a-half hours. Another minute longer and they might go blind, and we deaf. The din h...

    UGK for Life - A conversation with the incomparable Bun B

    Spazmatics = Revenge of the Replicants - Did you know that '80s cover band the Spazmatics has clones from coast to coast?

    Ah, Houston. Increasingly, we seem to be a city that loves its chain stores, a franchise-friendly haven where people get their groceries at Wal-Mart and will drive right past places like Lankford Grocery to get their burger fix at Mickey D's. And n...
