Local Love: Flower Politics

Local Love: Flower Politics

I don’t expect you to have heard of Houston’s Flower Politics, but you should know that the primarily solo artist has dropped over twenty albums over the past three years, and if nothing else, they’re prolific. On their latest record, New Beginnings from December of last year, they really stretch their wings and offers up one of the most endearing and honest sounding albums I’ve heard in a good while…

Purple Bastard Returns With Fresh New Cassette

Purple Bastard Returns With Fresh New Cassette

Houston’s Purple Bastard, formerly known as That Purple Bastard, who moved away to Los Angeles four years ago only to come back with a more focused and direct sound. On his latest release Down & Out HTX, the cassette only release ushers in a new era for the producer were the tracks are more focused and succinct while never losing their power and staying true to their instrumental hip hop leanings…

On The Cusp: Miears

On The Cusp: Miears

While the band worked on what would become last year’s Hold On, Miears had already started work on a solo album of her own while the group sorted out what would turn out to be the long process of mixing the album. The end result, Who Will Save You, is a mix of dark and brooding undertones mixed with the subtle synthesized notes that BLSHS so catchy…

Houstonian Tales: MyDolls

Houstonian Tales: MyDolls

In today’s music landscape, there are subgenres of female fronted punk acts, and it seems as normal as pretty much any other group going. But, in the late seventies, while everyone was thinking about how progressive they were, Houston’s MyDolls literally changed what people think of punk music…

Local Love: Dollie Barnes

Local Love: Dollie Barnes

It feels like, when you first hear something that grabs you by the heart, that you can become so enamored with it, that it becomes hard to describe. That’s kind of how it felt the first time that I heard Houston’s Dollie Barnes. On request from Chase Hamblin to check the band out, the voice of a songbird echoed across the crowded hollows of Continental Club…

Perseph One Brings Fire on New EP

Perseph One Brings Fire on New EP

There’s a good chance that you might not know Houston’s Perseph One, but for a good while now, she’s been dropping crazy live sets full of deep and heavy handed jams. On her long awaited new EP Machine Mammal released this last December, the rapper spits rhymes with intensity while backed by tracks produced by the likes of B L A C K I E, Stephen Farris, and Josiah Gabriel, offering up a sound that’s more future than present.…

Rose Ette Leaks New Song From Cassingle

If you’re anything like Houston’s Rose Ette though, you’re more than likely going to take that to the next level.

Ak’chamel Channels Signals From Across The Globe

Ak’chamel Channels Signals From Across The Globe

Quite possibly the most bizarre band I’ve seen in the past decade, Ak’chamel continues to push the boundaries of experimental music while never copying what they’ve done before. On their latest release, Transmission From Boshqa, the group that varies between a two piece and a five piece takes things one step further in their genre, while echoing the likes of Sir Richard Bishop and Alvarius B without lifting from either. …
