Review: Austin City Limits Music Festival 2011

Review: Austin City Limits Music Festival 2011

This year’s ACL Festival was a banner one in many ways.  After 10 years, marked by explosive growth and popularity, the 10th anniversary Fest needed to be memorable.  I’ve been attending ACL for the past six years and some have been better than others.  There have been times when I’ve sworn off attending ever again, [Continue]

AGMG Presents: Christmas Tuneskies 2010

Last year, I started a new holiday tradition, one truly for the ages.  Born out of apathy for Top Whatever end-of-year lists, I decided that it wasn’t really the Austin Girl Music Guide style to pretend like I’d listened to every album that came out in a given year carefully enough to actually rate them [Continue]

What I'm listening to this week: Arcade Fire

Funeral - 2004 Funeral was the debut album for Arcade Fire, and when it was released in 2004, it proved without a doubt that indie bands can still come out of nowhere and be not only powerful, but highly influential.  Even 5 years later, Funeral is dangerously close to perfection.  This is the type of [Continue]
