    Drenched in Blog: "Dear Jet Magazine"

    This post should serve as notice to inform you that I will in fact not be subscribing to your magazine this year. It's not because I don't enjoy in-depth articles on noted civil-rights leader Andrew Young, or the seasonal hair-care tips that help m...

    Drenched in Blog Extra: Foxboro Hot Tubs

    When Drenched came to after Saturday night's Houston Press holiday party, we needed something to lift our deflated, dehydrated spirits. You see, open bars and rock writers mix just as well as peanut butter and anti-freeze. This is Foxboro Hot Tubs,...

    Sailing with Captain Jack

    And the truth is, I like Billy Joel. That's right, I said it. Billy Joel is just fine by me. As long as he's not driving me anywhere. This disturbing, yet extremely liberating, realization set in one morning last week when I stopped by Valero seeki...

    Dug Pinnick: Strum Sum Up

    David Olney - Nashville lifer is nobody's dummy

    Top 10 Most Hated Rappers - Who made the shit list

    There's a host of cocksure yet affable rappers out there for whom people can't help but cheer these days: Kanye, Lupe, etc. But who wants to read a list of the most beloved rappers in the game when there are so many jackasses worth writing about? He...

    Stacey Earle & Mark Stuart

    Stacey Earle's Iris DeMent-like country drawl goes right through me; I've been hooked on it ever since her "When I Fall" duet on brother Steve's 2000 LP Transcendental Blues (yes, that Steve). Some people just seem made to sing together, like they'r...

    Sharks and Sailors, Ume

    Houston indie-prog outfit Sharks and Sailors' self-titled 2006 EP was one of the year's sleeper hits, a turbulent but precise journey of push-and-pull dynamics that recalls the finer moments of Don Caballero and Maserati. Demos for the trio's impend...

    Andrew Jackson Jihad

    It's not uncommon for a rock group to feature guest spots, rotating personnel or additional instruments. Add a guitarist here, substitute a vocalist there, mike that kit a bit differently, and the textures change. Usually, though, the band retains i...

    Lee Boys

    Even the holiest among us don't expect to grab a piece of religion while hanging at the local dive bar. Then again, it's not good to make assumptions like that if you haven't heard the music of the gospel-y yet funky church band the Lee Boys. Fronte...

    Goodbye, Proletariat - The Montrose clubhouse is closing. What now?

    Owning a nightclub, particularly one including music as a significant part of its business plan, isn't quite the same thing as gathering a huge pile of cash in the middle of a room and setting it ablaze, but it's close. Between the vast amount of ca...

    Lupe Fiasco - Lupe Fiasco's The Cool

    Though some believe Chicago's Lupe Fiasco is too smart for mainstream rap, that's not exactly true. Most of the lyrics on sophomore release Lupe Fiasco's The Cool are pretty basic, clichd stuff, right down to the CD's opening monologue: "They thoug...

    Richard Lloyd - The Radiant Monkey

    Minus the terrible cover art and the aberrant jock-rock boogie of the opening track, "Monkey," the remainder of Richard Lloyd's most recent solo outing, falls comfortably within the guitarist's angular, ordered realm. Since his heyday playing second...

    Various Artists - Healing Force: The Songs of Albert Ayler

    An icon of 1960s free jazz, tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler had a singularly extreme approach that influenced figures as disparate as John Coltrane, Peter Brtzmann and Patti Smith. Healing Force pays tribute to Ayler's oft-reviled late period, inclu...
