Houston, here’s how to spend the following seven days.…

Gio Chamba Falls Flat on ‘Tejas’

Gio Chamba Falls Flat on ‘Tejas’

I’ve always thought that Gio Chamba is one of the most exciting live artists in the Houston music landscape today. However, on his new album Tejas most of that energy is lost on licks that sound like they were lifted directly from someone else and beats that are about as intriguing as it is to watch beats get made. While Chamba may have one of the strongest live shows to perform in the past decade, even that energy can’t save the pitfalls of this release.…

FPH Exclusive: Teenage Wildlife

FPH Exclusive: Teenage Wildlife

Mantra Love’s Derek Silva is a guy who seems to have tons of creative juices flowing, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that he has a pretty intriguing side project called Teenage Wildlife. In it, Silva alongside friend and collaborator Nader Ibrahim create a sound that’s part chillwave and part electro dream pop that’s pretty hard not to like…

Housing Crash Scratches So Many Itches on New EP

Housing Crash Scratches So Many Itches on New EP

It seems like every five to ten years, there’s a resurgence in music that feels familiar, but not the same. It’s not new by any means, and when it happens correctly, you can’t help but get the chills when you hear it. For Turkey’s Housing Crash that nostalgic sound from another time comes through in spades and sounds better in some ways than it did the first time around…

Never Been Wrong: The Best of The Week

Never Been Wrong: The Best of The Week

While tours make their way to Houston this week, we’ll get treated to the likes of Waxahatchee, Jimmy Eat World, and Lionel Richie will all swing through town. Of course, with locals like Clay Melton, El Lago, ImposterBoys and more rounding out the week, we should be ready for tons of entertaining options. Houston, here’s how to map out the following week…

Arcade Fire Embraces Pop on New Album

Arcade Fire Embraces Pop on New Album

As a guy who never really found the world of Arcade Fire as endearing as everyone else seemed to, I couldn’t escape the fact that the Canadian formed six piece was always willing to try new things while moving more ahead than many bands who get caught in a rut…

In Case You Missed It: Spain Colored Orange

In Case You Missed It: Spain Colored Orange

Houston’s Spain Colored Orange was full of psych influence, and sounding like a wet dream from the mind of Brian Wilson, the six piece didn’t really dissolve but really just started becoming more and more focused on when they’d play, rather than the Houston norm of playing regularly…

Other Side: The Best of The Week

FPH Exclusive: Mojave Red Drops Catchy New Single

FPH Exclusive: Mojave Red Drops Catchy New Single

For Houston’ Mojave Red, the vibe has always been that they’re up to change and keep things interesting for themselves, as well as for those who are listening. On their latest single “Fading Out” found exclusively here, they take the psych sound they became known for and take it to a new and funky space that’s catchy and hard not to like…

Houston Bands Are Doing It Wrong

Houston Bands Are Doing It Wrong

If you look around the country, you should be able to find one band in every city that’s doing things correctly. If you’re smart about things, you start your band, you play locally to get your sound right, and then you start following time tested methods to further your career. In Houston however, it seems that most bands are hell bent on either taking advice from someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about, or following their own way of doing things, which leads us to where we are today-a bunch of bands doing things wrong…

Depth Charge: The Best of The Week
