    Drenched In Blog: Sonic Youth's Surprise Bassist

    Talk about being in indie-rock snob heaven. Friday night I rolled into Austin, in defiance of all Texas state laws, to see Sonic Youth. The Meat Puppets opened to a packed (and stoned) house. The crowd was more on the older side, people who lost thei...

    Charalambides, Likeness

    Houston expatriates Tom and Christina Carter of Charalambides are probably among the city's most prolific non-blues musicians: Their band has averaged two full-length releases per year since they began playing 15 years ago. Still, the volume of their...

    GRiT Boys, Ghetto Reality in Texas - An evening with Houston's GRiT Boys

    It's always a good idea to judge people by the way that they look, right? Well, it turns out that once-infallible methodology may be kind of, well, wrong. At first glance, the GRiT Boys appear to be more of the stereotype-reinforcing thug rappers wh...

    The Replacements: All Over but the Shouting, by Jim Walsh - A new oral history of The Replacements

    No one likes to piss off a rock god. But oral histories thrill most when they're packed with gossipy first-person accounts. The author of The Replacements: All Over but the Shouting, Jim Walsh, wrote about the Minneapolis scene in Press sister paper ...

    Miranda Lambert

    Miranda Lambert may be blond, and she did get her big break on a musical reality show (American Idol's twangier cousin Nashville Star), but otherwise she's completely out of sync with mainstream country's current parade of perfectly styled waifs who...

    Peter Bjorn & John

    There's absolutely nothing complicated about Peter Bjorn & John. Comprised of three guys named -- you guessed it -- Peter, Bjorn and John, the Swedes wear this simplicity on their sleeves. That sort of unself-conscious, and very Nordic, unfussiness ...

    Trenchtown in the 'Trose - Talking ska with Ryan Scroggins

    Maybe there are taller peaks ahead in the career of Ryan Scroggins, the former keyboardist in Los Skarnales and now the leader of his own band, the Trenchtown Texans. Or maybe the best has already come and gone. Scroggins knows one thing -- nothing c...

    Otep, Hellyeah

    Otep Shamaya says "Art is war." The singer for her namesake L.A.-based metal fusion band considers herself a revolutionary, and makes artistic catharsis via visceral screams and songs that sear into the ears like hot grease. Her lyrics are laden wit...

    Avenged Sevenfold, Avenged Sevenfold

    In the past, Avenged Sevenfold's meathead simplicity pretty much excused all its bad behavior and even worse musical choices. It was as if the five members picked up, pored over and appropriated the Metal Band Rulebook before ever learning a single ...

    Balaclavas, Rusted Shut

    It's tempting to refer to the brooding punk of Balaclavas' two EPs as goth, but the band lacks proper goth's showiness, melodrama and fashion sense. They better recall the razor's edge of darkness walked by Joy Division, though without the flavor of...

    Eagles, The Long Road Out of Eden
