    Boogie Chillun

    Perhaps inspired by Miss Pop Rocks's ill-fated trips through Wikipedia's labyrinths of information, I set out this morning to round up a few of the worst tribute bands on YouTube and wound up sidetracked with this little video treatise on the boogie....

    Mp3: Simpleton's "Milo"

    Here's a little nugget from the vaults. In 2000, when punk/rappers Simpleton released this, there was more excitement about baseball here than there had been since about 1986. The Astros were moving into Enron Stadium! It was Lima time! The Kil...

    This Week's MuxTape

    Sadly, I had to delete my African diaspora Muxtape, as the site only allows you to have 12 songs up with any one account. This week's version takes a more local focus -- 12 of my favorite contemporary rock songs from Houston. (All are from this deca...

    Mp3: "Sit Shiva," by Judas Bear

    Matcek has always been a wildly inconsistent artist. Previous of his bands - All Transistor, Sad Like Crazy, an eponymous project - were full of Alpine peaks and arid valleys. And this song is almost as uneven as one of his records. I don't care muc...

    Thirteen Great Soul-Blues Album Covers

    The music on these records tends to be about sex, often more specifically about cheating, and the covers bear that out. Usually there's a healthy dose of humor on these records too, and once again, the covers tell the story. And tell stories they do....

    Sunday Afternoon: Ramsay Midwood at Under the Volcano

    Grand Theft Auto X: The Screwston Chronicles

    An evening with perennial Houston street hustlers Big Body Click - Square Business

    The size of a man's hands and feet is related to the size of his, er, penis, if you catch our drift. (Wink.) Or so claims singer Faye Robinson. "If a man has fat hands and long ol' feet," bellows Robinson during a Saturday-night performance of th...
