Musician, songwriter, and interdisciplinary artist Cody Critcheloe aka SSION just released O, his third studio album, his first release in seven years, and it’s fantastic. The album opens with a cover of Roy Orbison’s “Big As I Can Dream.” “I will build a dream for you…” Critcheloe sings in a misty-disco tone as if addressing […]

Realizing Solange’s A Seat at the Table will be turning one later this month is truly wild. Not only was the project one of the best albums of 2016 (some might even argue it was the best) but the year following its release was quite a year for Solange. Her record was #1 on both Apple […]

In typical M.I.A. fashion, “AIM,” M.I.A.’s latest and allegedly her last record, layers provocative verses with inventive beats that bop. Well, on some tracks – Others feel thematically repetitive and poorly produced. However, tracks like “Go Off” and “A.M.P. (All My People)” are proof that M.I.A. still has lots to give. If “AIM” is the […]

Rhye, Milosh and Robin Hannibal’s very sensual R&B project, performed for the first time at Houston’s Warehouse Live last Thursday – three years after their first album debut, Woman.

Freetown Sound, Devonte Hynes’ latest project under Blood Orange, was released yesterday following his critically acclaimed 2013 record Cupid Deluxe. The record, like Cupid Deluxe, is a complex combination of R&B, Jazz, and stylized eighties Synth Pop yet lyrically, it is quite a straightforward dialogue on black and queer identity/experience that begins with poet Angel […]

PWR BTTM, a Brooklyn based queercore/garage punk duo, graced Houstonites with the unapologetically queer sound of their debut album Ugly Cherries. The record, released nearly a year ago, attempts to capture the fears of being queer, young, and liking boys while promoting self-love and empowerment.

I first discovered Father John Misty following the release of his sophomore album, titled I Love You, Honeybear, in 2015. As a freshman on my second semester of college taking introductory sociology courses and learning about the evils of textbook rental prices I was drawn to Father John Misty’s angry and disillusioned yet tender criticism […]

Australian brothers Keith and Michael Jeffery of Atlas Genius along with opener Skylar Grey brought quite an eclectic set list to Houston’s House of Blues this past Wednesday – ranging from a cover of Tears for Fears’s “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” to “Molecules,” their latest single, Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” and The Weeknd’s “The […]

I first saw English indie folk trio Daughter live last year at Austin City Limits and, although a gratifying experience, I was left wishing I had seen them in a more intimate/quiet setting. These wishes came true last Wednesday at Numbers Nightclub and where the band performed following the release of their second record Not […]

As we look back on a crazy week in Austin, we realize that it is slightly colder than it was last week at Austin’s SXSW. (Maybe a sign to remind us that Spring Break is over and school is, once again, a thing?) However, before doing that let us look back at yet another year of music, […]
