Special Edition Review: Coldplay’s Upcoming “Mylo Xyloto”

Mylo Xyloto (Release date – October 24, 2011) Hi there readers!  I can’t believe it’s been nine months since I’ve written a post.  Graduate school ended back in May, and while I’ve been tossing around the idea of blogging again, the truth is that I just haven’t gotten around to it.  This weekend though, I [Continue]

SXSW Obsession Part 3: My Interview with Brazos

A few weeks ago, I met with Martin Crane, lead singer of local indie band Brazos, for an interview at Spider House as part of the SXSW Spinner project.  You can read the published article here: SXSW 2010: Brazos. Crane’s a pretty soft-spoken and kind of shy person, and obviously cares deeply about the music [Continue]

Today's Musing: Cactus Cafe to Close

Yesterday, the University of Texas announced that in August, they are closing the famous on-campus music venue, the Cactus Cafe.  It comes as a shock to many, and as a University student and a lover of music with a fondness for our fair city, I’m also saddened to hear this news.  The Cactus Cafe is [Continue]

Concert Review: Coldplay (Dallas/Houston 7/21-7/22)

The very first time I listened to Coldplay was in December 2005 and coincidentally enough, it was at a simulcast of their taping of Austin City Limits.  At the time, my husband became privy to the knowledge that Michael Stipe was going to be making a guest appearance during Coldplay’s set and worked quickly to [Continue]

Mind Control - 2007 Mind Control is the first solo album by Stephen Marley, the second oldest of Bob Marley’s children.  Prior to its release, Stephen had spent most of his career producing albums for his numerous siblings in the music industry.  In fact, I was first introduced to Stephen Marley during the taping of [Continue]

What I'm listening to this week: Iron and Wine

What I'm listening to this week: Iron and Wine

The Shepherd’s Dog – 2007 Sam Beam, the lyricist, voice, and driving force of Iron and Wine, basically came out of nowhere in 2002.   His unique sound and ability helped him quickly find a place in the indie scene; hushed yet warm vocals, barely above a whisper at times, sparse, hollow acoustic instrumentation, and [Continue]

What I'm listening to this week: Ghostland Observatory

Robotique Majestique – 2008 I have to admit I never understood the appeal of Ghostland Observatory until I saw their episode of Austin City Limits on the air.  Actually, I had the opportunity to watch the taping; it was a double-billing with The Decemberists.  My husband and I chose not to stay for Ghostland because [Continue]
