    Attention Bayou City Radioheads

    Has anyone downloaded Radiohead's brand-new MP3-only album In Rainbows yet? I haven't, but the codes were emailed overnight and reviews are starting to trickle onto the Internet. (Like here.) Seems like another stylistic mash-up a la Hail to the Thi...

    If there's one thing we learned from the Press' recent H-Town 100 list, it's that Houston has produced a lot of great songs. If there's another thing we learned, it's that lists - of anything, but since this is the music blog we'll stick with songs ...

    Drenched In Blog: Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails Cry "Freedom"

    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...

    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...

    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...
