Patterson Hood's flannel anthems

The Mother Truckers: Cowpunk Coitus

What currently passes for racy humor in mainstream country music are winking, beat-around-the-bush abstractions like Brad Paisley's "Ticks." But Austin-based country-rockers the Mother Truckers don't subscribe to that play-it-safe formula (hell, their band name alone proves as much). With the…

The follow-up to LaVette's potent 2005 LP I've Got My Own Hell to Raise stays true to its title, as The Scene of the Crime is the sound of a survivor's sure-footed stand. Here LaVette returns to Muscle Shoals' FAME…

    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
