Music

Ollie-vah!

Hearsay
From the WTF? Department. Though hardly recognized as a source of insightful music criticism, Esquire magazine is still one of the best-written publications ever.


And Another Thing …

Prolific singer-songwriter James Michael Taylor has something to say. Dammit.
ANTHONY MARIANI
Little Rooster wasn’t a hero. He was a small-town constable who always wanted to play cop.



Spoon

Listen Up
Britt Daniel has a broken heart. His band Spoon’s lengthy catalog of masterfully crafted pop-rock songs are proof that the man at the helm has been burned a time or two.


The Fellow Americans

Listen Up
From the opening riff on Search for Numb, it’s obvious that The Fellow Americans aren’t interested in fancy production tricks or endless sonic nuances. The Fort Worth band simply rocks.



The Redwalls

Listen Up
The Beatles left an immeasurable mark on popular music — there’s no denying their legacy.


New Moon

Hearsay
If you walk into The Moon on West Berry Street by TCU this Friday, you’ll notice a couple of drastic changes:



Musical Healing

Get Well isn’t just a solid indie-rock-jazz-funk-soul band — it’s doctor’s orders.
CAROLINE COLLIER
Get Well is an unusually health-conscious — and healthy-sized —band.


Alan Jackson

Listen Up
Alan Jackson may be one of a few current country music stars whose careers will last longer than a frozen margarita or one of those fruity drinks with umbrellas.



Lil’ Brian and the Travelers

Listen Up
Lil’ Brian’s music is a mix of zydeco and contemporary urban grooves — he calls it “Z-Funk.”


Little Texas

Listen Up
In 1997, I attended Little Texas’ farewell concert at Billy Bob’s Texas and witnessed a good but not great performance by an overblown group of country rockers with more ’tude than talent.
