Shovels & Rope, Little Seeds

For a large chunk of my life, I would proudly declare to anybody who’d listen that I hated country music. I got downright righteous about it, honestly, for reasons that would probably only make sense to teenage wannabe music nerds with inflated senses of their own importance. And yeah, I’d imagine it was pretty freaking annoying…

Wild Moccasins, 88 92

There’s always been an ’80s influence apparent in the Wild Moccasins’ music, it’s true. With new album 88 92, however, they’re flying their neon-colored flag proudly, even spelling it out explicitly in the album title. There’s a serious New Wave feel to the whole thing…

Let The Bass Drop: Surviving FPSF 2013, Day One

If there’s anything I’ve learned in all the years I’ve spent doing critical writing, both in college and after, it’s that you can make anything have a theme. Not that everything actually has a theme, mind you, but rather that if you read…

Musician to Musician: Buxton

My, how time flies! Looking through my articles and posts for Space City Rock, I realized that it’s been a long time since I’ve done a Musician to Musician interview. It’s not that I’ve interviewed everyone I’ve wanted to. It’s just that life took over…

Tonight: Grandfather Child Hits the Road, at Warehouse Live

It may just be me, but it seems like it’s been awful quiet lately over in the {Grandfather Child} camp. For a year or two there, Lucas Gorham, Ryan Chavez, Robert Ellis, and Geoffrey Muller seemed to be freaking everywhere

The Wild Moccasins, “Gag Reflections”/‚ÄúSummer of Love”

It’s been a little while since I’ve run across The Wild Moccasins. I dearly loved 2010’s Skin Collision Past, but I’ve been sorely missing them in the intervening couple of years, not even managing to catch the band live at Summerfest this year…

Buxton, Nothing Here Seems Strange

There’s an incredible feeling of serenity throughout Nothing Here Seems Strange, the latest full-length from La Porte heroes Buxton. It’s this weird calmness, a kind of resignation, almost, that things are changing and there’s nothing that can be done about it…

The Wild Moccasins

Late, late, late on this one, as always. The Wild Moccasins have been steadily been making a name for themselves for quite a while now, and they just keep getting better and better as they go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 3: Buxton + The Donkeys + Bright Men + Tigerparty + Appleseed Cast + Jeff Wells Memorial + More

Not quite as busy this Sunday, August 21st, no, but there’s still some very, very cool stuff going on tonight, so don’t let it pass you by. First on my list is Rudyard’s tonight…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Buxton + The Literary Greats + Biscuit Bombs + Glitch Mob + Alps + Sarah Jaffe + More

Whoa. Got a fairly substantial pile for tonight, Friday, July 8th, so I’ll attempt to get through as much of it as I possibly can… First off, this evening’s a one-two punch in terms of awesome rootsy/folky H-town rockers…

Tonight: Robert Ellis Releases Photographs, Up at Fitz

I honestly didn’t see it coming, folks. I’d crossed my fingers that one of this city’s current bumper crop of talented-as-hell country/folk rockers would finally break out of H-town and make their mark, at least in the wider indie world…

Robert Ellis Aims for The Big Time (And Shares a New Song)

As reported by the {29-95.com} folks back around the start of the year, local songwriter, multi-band-playing ninja, and all-’round old-time country boy {Robert Ellis} signed a little while ago…

Cool, Cool News: Buxton & The Wild Moccasins Sign to New West (& The Latter Visit Europe!)

I’ll freely admit that I’m not convinced that signing to an actual record label is all that critical to a band’s success, these days. Hell, I’m tempted to argue that it never has been. Even setting aside the Albini-esque financial calculations of being on a major label…
