    Tremoloco

    Even though they are from East Los Angeles and have close ties to Los Lobos, there are few repertoires that scream "Gulf Coast" like Tremoloco's. No matter whether the language is Spanish or English; the style honky-tonk, Tex-Mex or rock and roll; t...

    Matthew Ryan's songs almost always deal with conflict -- often without resolution. In his incisively detailed lyrics, people struggle with themselves, lovers, family or society. Throughout, there are references to the valiant nature of love and pass...

    Jason Ward's Matagorda Island Discs

    This week's installment comes from Jason "J-Thunder" Ward, current bassist for '80s cover act the Lost Boys. "I keep seeing this," he writes, "so I figured I'd throw a list out and see if anyone else wants to pick on me for it." Despite his mu...

    Singer-songwriter David Berman is as much of an ironist in life as he is in art. Note that after landing in rehab following a Xanax overdose (an act with sardonic aspects of its own), he belatedly embraced Judaism -- a belief system he'd never taken...

    Usher : Here I Stand

    You really can't fault entertainers who claim "playa for life" status. At least they're being honest; everyone from Rod Stewart to video performer-turned-tell-all-author Karrine "Superhead" Steffans knows the promiscuous can't be reformed. Once you ...

    Spiritualized: Songs in A&E

    It took a stop in Cincinnati and a brush with death (unrelated incidents in this case) to bring Jason Pierce's latest Spiritualized project into focus. Pierce wrote much of Songs in A&E years ago, strumming the melodies on a vintage 1929 Gibson he p...

    What Do Shepard Smith and Soulja Boy have in common? - Wack's here to tell you: more than you might expect

    If there's one thing the self-satisfied, liberal, tofu-munching, cappuccino-sipping, in vitro fertilization-utilizing coastal elite hate, it's Fox News. The Rupert Murdoch-owned home to such neoconservative mouthpieces as Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hann...
