Caroline Polachek does it all. As a songwriter, producer, singer, and director, her discography reflects the level of deep care and intention that she holds for her work.

Wrapping up black history month, I wanted to discuss some of my favorite black musicians who have influenced me today. The pioneers who have paved the way.

Born Nemah Hasan, Palestinian-Canadian pop rock singer Nemahsis recently went viral for singing Lorde’s “Team” a capella over photos and videos of her country, beautifully capturing her people and her land’s strength and resistance. The cover compelled me to learn more about her, and I was entranced by her siren-like voice and moving lyrics. Though […]

There’s something really special about witnessing beginner artists in your own generation learning how to work on their craft, find their footing in the music industry and learning how to be a successful artist. I’ve picked out two such artists, both of whom I’ve been following long enough on the internet to understand how their […]

As we all know, Spotify stops gathering users’ listening data October 31st so their people can present us with our Christmas presents on December 1st: the long-awaited Spotify Wrapped. Though it’s always bugged me a bit that all of my listening activity isn’t shown, I’m especially bugged this year, as I’ve had an active November. […]

The last time Billie Marten came to Texas was in 2016.  The UK born artist gave a headlining show last Thursday in Austin at 3TEN ACL.

Last Monday, Faye Webster paid Houston a visit on the lawn of White Oak Music Hall. Hundreds of fans gathered on the grassy and muddy hill to witness the twenty-six year old singer-songwriter perform with her band. Her set ran about an hour long, and she performed a combination of songs from her albums I […]

On Wednesday, November 1, 2023, Kevin Gates, along with special guests BigXThaPlug, Kayla G and DJ Chose, brought the Only the Generals tour to 713 Music Hall. DJ Chose Hosted by Houston’s very own DJ Chose, the show was filled with exciting new artists and lots of fan interactions. Norman Payne, a.k.a DJ Chose, grew […]

Indubitably one of the best bands to listen to while “spooky season” commences, The Cramps provide the best soundtrack to go with the pumpkin and spiderweb décor. In 1972, Erick Purkhiser and Kristy Wallace formed the iconic psychobilly punk rock band. Later they took the stage names, Lux Interior and Poison Ivy. While they fell […]

Unknown Mortal Orchestra made a stop at Houston’s White Oak Music Hall on their V tour, celebrating and promoting the release of their fifth studio album.

The Houston show was the opening night in their Hasn’t Been The Same Since tour, in which they visited San Antonio, Austin and Dallas over a jam-packed weekend. At the newly reopened The Nook […]

Music, movies, and Buc-ee’s. These three words describe the first Texas show on Vacations’ and Last Dinosaurs’ double headliner tour, TOURZILLA, at White Oak Music Hall. For most of the shows I’ve been to this year, the opener would be one or two people performing an acoustic set. I was caught by surprise when a […]

British band, Easy Life, have to stop using their name due to legal reasons, so I want to highlight some of my favorite songs of theirs.

With the one-year anniversary of this EP approaching, I decided to analyze every track on this intricate piece of art. Christian Leave, an indie pop musician, has extended boundaries by providing a new perspective on heartbreak. In his EP, Superstar, Leave tells the story of someone trying to rekindle a faded spark while feeling inferior to their […]

In the crevices of Houston, the Satellite Bar was a home to many beautiful shows. One of which was the show of underground “internet music” star, George Clanton back in 2021. Last week the electronic/ vaporwave artist was back in Houston for his newest album’s Ooh Rap I Ya tour. As expected, Clanton gave an […]

The 90’s and early 2000’s were full of girl power and gorgeous harmonies provided by memorable groups such as Destiny’s Child, TLC, The Spice Girls, and more. However, the recent boom in the Eastern K-Pop market has made it glaringly obvious that the West barely has any girl groups to keep up with demand, and […]

On a cool Autumn Saturday night, the various characters of the local Houston scene gathered for an evening of loud, brutal, hardcore- amongst other things. The first opener of the night was Nothing after Death, a shoegaze-esque rock band from right here in Houston. My friend, Eight, who accompanied me, commented, “They’ve never booked a […]
