Our Tribe’s Fall Classic

Jerome 57 has been in his band longer than he hasn’t. Now 35, he cofounded Spoonfed Tribe when he was at the tender age of 15. Not many other North Texas musicians can claim a similarly lengthy musical/professional relationsh...


Nobel, No Bob

Does Bob Dylan do it for you? I ask only because I keep hearing that people either love him or hate him. I guess I’ve always been hovering somewhere in the middle –– not anymore, though. The 75-year-old native Minnesotan ...

You From Before is brilliant, subdued.

Jacob Furr’s Sierra Madre

Jacob Furr’s gone dark. On the Fort Worth singer-songwriter’s fifth recording, Sierra Madre, he sprinkles his trademark acoustic balladry with some crunchy guitarwork and intense rhythmic passages. The new material, Furr sa...


Whence Yon Lyrics?

Here’s what’s wrong with kids today. (Well, one thing.) They expect next to nothing from their pop stars, unlike back in the day, when we plebes had some lyrical standards. This chasm will be thrown into harsh relief this w...
