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. Marten released her first EP, As Long As in 2015 and gained popularity in the soft indie genre. She is currently touring in support of her most recent album release, […]

            On a cold night in Houston, locals gathered to experience the sounds of modern soul music at The Heights Theater, a 97-year-old venue that was once a cinema. Thee Sinseers, The Altons and The Mellows delivered a swooning performance full of genre-bending singing that enlightened the audience to a soul and blues revival. The […]

It’s now been over a year since the loss of one of popular music’s most important figures, SOPHIE. Those unfamiliar with the scope of SOPHIE’s influence need look no further than all of SOPHIE’s collaborators, ranging from Kendrick Lamar to Hatsune Miku. There are few musicians with the same level of influence on the music […]

To be completely honest, this article has been a long time coming. Apollo XXI has been one of my favorite albums for quite awhile now–although it did take me several months to fully appreciate it. It’s an uncommon blend of funk, neo-soul, R&B, jazz, and indie rock elements, and it often takes first-time listeners a […]

It has been five years since you gave up your passion for someone you thought was permanent; then ended up stuck behind a desk counting the seconds until the clock strikes 5 pm…just to question everything again tomorrow. R&B artist Corey H was in this thought process five years ago until he looked out the […]

For a man that has created his own genre known as “Gorestep”, Borgore has created a brand that has not only sparked controversy but has been able to mold that controversy into being identified as the “Bad Boy of EDM”.   Asaf Borger, also known by his stage name, Borgore, is an Israeli DJ/producer that […]

Perfume Genius is the stage name of the talented singer/songwriter that is Mike Hadreas. Hailing from Washington state, Hadreas dropped out of high school his senior due to the constant abuse, on account of being homosexual, from the high school football team and lack of action from the school. He was assaulted by a group […]

T-minus two weeks until Austin City Limits returns to the grassy plains of Zilker Park, and it’s coming back with a vengeance. Bringing out big names like Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, and Ice Cube, they’ve truly outdone themselves with this year’s lineup. Another headliner – who perhaps I’m most excited for – is The Revivalists. […]

At 83 years old Willie Nelson is one of the oldest living rock stars of our time who is still kicking it and it’s no surprise he’s going to be in Austin this weekend since he has always been a part of ACL since the beginning.

If you happen to have lived in the middle of the woods or under a rock for the past 4 years then I apologize, for you probably have not heard the name Kendrick Lamar. If you have lived in the mainstream world , then 9 times out of 10 you will definitely know the name. Blessed with luscious brown locks, the immensely talented and eccentric BØRNS is an act you definitely don’t want to miss at FPSF.

December brings Christmas carols, ugly sweaters and here in Houston the cool “chill” of 60 degree weather. Christmas came early for me this year. I did not receive lavish gifts of frankincense and myrrh, no no. Daryl Palumbo was the ultimate Kris Kringle this holiday season.

Benjamin Booker can easily be described as soulful and punk, but do not categorize him with the blues.

Those bands that you see the name of and think, nah, I probably wouldn’t like them. That’s how many may treat Manchester Orchestra, but don’t do yourself the same injustice. This group from the Deep South, Atlanta, are a hit in the indie and alternative rock scenes. They’ve been around for over ten years and […]

So, I’ve been trying to think of ways to bring something new to the table that is also consistent. While pondering ideas and listening to my music on shuffle, I came to the realization that I have so many songs that are from my favorite artists, but sung by different artist- covers. Some covers from random […]

You have probably heard the song “Sweater Weather” playing on the radio, right? You are also probably familiar with their logo consisting of a black-and-white house flipped upside-down. Well, put those two together and you have American rock band, The Neighbourhood which formed in August 2011. The band is composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy […]
