    Drenched In Blog: ACL Fest in Photos

    Someone got the bright idea to pair Paolo Nutini and Ray Benson from Asleep at the Wheel for an artist panel in the media lounge. They ask Paolo what it's like to tour in Texas, and so he goes off on this weird patronizing reply in his lady-killing...

    ACL Fest: MIA and Bjrk, Tearing Down the Fourth Wall

    Speaking of fires at ACL Fest, one of the speakers on the AT&T Stage started flaming up during Bjrk's set last night. "I thought they were telling us to exit because the show was over," says a pretty little birdie who was hanging out side stage near...

    M.I.A.

    Mathangi "M.I.A." Arulpragasam's 2005 debut, Arular, got lotsa reviewers hot and bothered, and deservedly so, but only a relative handful of U.S. listeners succumbed to its multi-culti charms. Such sales disappointments generally lead to commerciall...

    Habib Koit & Bamada, Afriki - CD Review

    After six years of relentless touring, Malian guitarist Habib Koit's latest recording again draws upon his native roots. Opener "Namania," an ode to a dark-skinned girl who triggers Koit's memories of times gone by, perfectly syncs up the call-and...

    PJ Harvey, White Chalk - CD Review

    Sometimes the simplest music is the most affecting. So it goes with PJ Harvey's new studio album White Chalk, which often feels like a sequel to Bjrk's Vespertine. Absent are the scorched-earth guitars and feral vocals Harvey is known for; instead,...

    Getting Better All the Time - Dozens of local musicians come together to honor stricken comrade Stephen Adams with a tribute show for the ages

    Finally, someone executed one of Stephen Adams's big ideas -- a faithful note-for-note live re-creation of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, complete with costumed musicians, and man did it ever turn out well. The Continental Club has seldom if...

    Emma Pollock, Watch the Fireworks - CD Review

    Before they called it quits in 2005, the Delgados eased up on the swirling orchestral-rock arrangements they inherited from the Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev, whose Dave Fridmann produced both 2000's The Great Eastern and 2002's Hate. The Scottish qu...

    Rap's Grateful Dead? Hova? Young? The No. 1 MC of all time? None of the above. A more appropriate title for Jay-Z is Most Overrated Rapper. Ever. With Tuesday's release of his second post-retirement album -- inspired by the movie American Gang...

    Radiohead and In Rainbows - The band's most blogged-about barn in America

    It was a beautiful stunt, wildly ambitious and wildly successful, with cataclysmic import for music-biz hand-wringers and hype-machine prognosticators alike. And that grand rollout, in the end, is what Radiohead's seventh album, In Rainbows, will fo...

    Willie D's Birthday Party

    The world now views Houston as a hip-hop hotbed, and rightly so as UGK, Devin the Dude, Chamillionaire, Trae, Paul Wall and numerous others dominate album sales and radio waves here and abroad. None of them would be anywhere, as they all freely admi...
