    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...

    Yonder Mountain String Band

    Like the similar-minded jamgrass acts Railroad Earth and Leftover Salmon, this quartet from over yonder (Nederland, Colorado, near Denver) shoots for the mythical sound of Bill Monroe fronting the Grateful Dead, though their music is clearly more in...

    The Fiery Furnaces

    Thank God Fiery Furnaces siblings Matthew and Eleanor Friedberger were never married. Lord knows they've got enough in common with the White Stripes. A dose of creepy pseudo-incest would just be too much to bear, although I'm sure plenty of indie ki...

    Blue Mountain

    If, circa 1994, you were wearing flannel shirts and discussing the meaning of "alternative" ad infinitum, chances are you were drinking at least some of your beer to Blue Mountain. Uncle Tupelo may have been the poster child of the then-nascent alt-...

    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...

    Culturcide: Year One

    Culturcide was a pop band that liked to play around with noise. Sometimes that noise overwhelmed their pop's shimmer and spark; other times, it lurked just under the surface. Year One, a re-release of the Houston band's 1982 debut, is awash in pop r...

    White Williams is No Average Joe
