Jonas Martin, “Let Them Drown” Last week, I mentioned that Mr. Martin had released a new single.  “Let Them Drown” kicks off with a 1970’s style bass heavy intro.  The rest of the song layers elements of modern indie and retro synthesizers on top of that 1970’s vibe, resulting in a thoroughly catchy and smart […]

No Spotify or Soundcloud this week.  This is just a playlist of songs I’ve uploaded to WordPress.  All the acts are nominees for this year’s Ghosty Awards, which will be held Sunday, November 22nd at The Underpass.  I swear, I really will be releasing details on performers soon.  In the meantime, give these sixteen songs […]

If you haven’t noticed, psych rock has made a comeback.  I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen the genre stronger in my lifetime than it is now.  Bands like The Black Angels have helped breathe new life into the genre.  The Ghost has taken note, and that’s why there’s a full category in the Ghosty […]

I tried this about a month ago, with limited success.  This time, I’ve changed things up a bit.  No longer will I be asking you to select songs and write about them.  I’ll do the writing, and I’m even selecting the candidates for which songs will be on the playlist.  I sorted through eighty of […]

Last week, I received an email from Jeff Gage of the Dallas Observer, letting me know it was time to send in nominations for this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards.  I’ve been given the privilege to be on the nominating committee since 2008, and making these decisions is never easy. One factor that makes this […]

Sunday Spotify Sixteen: The All-But-Not-Enough-Request Edition

Thanks to those who contributed to this list.  And to those who didn’t, well, you’re getting what you deserve in the end. Cafe Noir, “Window to the Sea” Of all the music I’ve seen & heard in Deep Ellum, Cafe Noir stays with me the most. As summer creeps to an end, I’m listening even […]

Last month, I wrote an article about some of the young talent in the metroplex.  One artist mentioned in that article was Camille Schuh, who has not played many shows as of late.  I’m glad to report that she has announced a show for August 13th at Klyde Warren Park, along with Houston based singer-songwriter […]

A little fact about me: I love lists.  More to the point, I love a good countdown.  Maybe it’s all those weekends of listening to Casey Kasem count down the Top 40 hits in the nation, week after week.  Whatever it is, I love making numbered lists.  Combine that with the fact that it’s hard […]

Moon Waves Tour Dates

moon waves

Psych rock has made a huge comeback in the past year or so, and one of the best local bands of that genre would definitely have to be Moon Waves.  One might think that a band so near the top of its game would be comprised of veterans of the local music scene, but that […]
