    Matt Costa: Unfamiliar Faces

    Despite the name, the faces on this SoCal singer-songwriter's sophomore disc aren't exactly unfamiliar: There's the Shins, there's Josh Rouse and, perhaps most of all, there's Jack Johnson, who signed Matt Costa to his Brushfire label and has had Co...

    Al Green: Lay It Down

    Most producers who supervise reclamation projects for aging stars make the mistake of trying to contemporize the artist's sound -- the equivalent of dressing your eightysomething Uncle Jake like a 21st-century club kid. Not so Roots drummer Amir "?u...

    The Mother Truckers: Let's All Go to Bed

    A slight consonant shift in The Mother Truckers' name yields Them Other Truckers, and where the Austin quartet's 2006 debut Broke, Not Broken sagged in spots, Let's All Go to Bed exudes a feisty confidence that recalls, well, them other Truckers. (D...

    Robyn: Robyn

    Way back in 1996, Robyn reached the Top 10 with "Do You Know (What It Takes)." She followed it up a year later with another big hit, "Show Me Love." Then she disappeared. This comeback album by the thin-voiced but spunky singer, who's now 28, was or...

    Banda meets ska meets the Smiths in the sound of Pistolera - Pistolas y Corazn

    Writers hear all kinds of reasons -- some plausible, many contrived -- why bands spring to life. Few match that of Pistolera, perhaps New York's only fusion of the Smiths and Banda El Recodo, among many other trans-Rio Grande, trans-Atlantic fusions....

    Staying Cool at Joe Carmouche's Legends Jazz Cafe - Houston's new downtown jazz digs

    On the official list of Things That Are Cool, playing a mean jazz guitar is right near the top. Specifically, it's directly above "catching a rattlesnake with your bare hands" and directly below "punching a guy in the face who's been acting like a do...

    The Science of Pop - Do we really need a formula for perfect music?

    A few years ago, a psychology lecturer at a British college came up with the formula for the "perfect" mood-lifting pop song. Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic posited a certain equation involving pitch, positive lyrics and serotonin levels that, when twea...

    Houston pop-rock king Arthur Yoria is giving away a new song called "The Libyans." As usual, it's catchy as hell, but Yoria's skillz in the studio continue to develop. The spare, skeletal intro blossoms into something as spacious, big-sky and vaultin...
