Final 4 in our recent Top CDs of the ’90s tournament (check the full results here), we knew we had to show the Canadian queen of country pop some love. Eilleen “Shania” […]

10 Great ‘Best Original Song’ Oscar Winners

April 24, 2021 by

By Alex Beene and David Hopper The entertainment phrase “the show must go on” has never felt quite as relevant as now. This Sunday, the Academy Awards will take place, as have other awards shows during the pandemic, after lengthy delay. Last year’s ceremony was lucky in retrospect, as it was able to be a […]

Through the Fire Inside: AFI in 5 songs

March 7, 2021 by

by Kelly Kling Kelly is an Austin-based freelance journalist and our resident AFI expert. AFI, an acronym for “A Fire Inside,” has been my favorite band for nearly 15 years. There’s nothing I love more than a group whose sound ebbs and flows with the times, and for 30 years AFI’s music has done just […]

Threefer: Super Bowl Weeknd Review

February 7, 2021 by

It’s no surprise that a middle-aged man like myself isn’t overly hip to The Weeknd. But even though, I’m into a lot of great Booze-Rock, Jazz, and New Wave, I assure you I have my ear to the ground when it comes to the world’s hottest artists. So when the barrage of Super Bowl commercials featuring The […]

5 Great Rock Drummers

February 2, 2021 by

I’ve always said that rock and roll is about kick drum and bass. Rhythm, after all, is the key definer of style. I grew up in the ‘burbs and was raised on AM-radio pop, which was neither very rhythmically interesting nor particularly powerful. As I gravitated to the album-oriented rock stations in our market, the […]

Threefer: Deep-Cut Cowbell Songs

January 9, 2021 by

I’ve got a fever… but there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of cowbell song lists already on the Internet. So fuck it — here’s another one. At least it’s short. These are three random tunes I heard on a recent long-distance car ride with my family. Not sure how they slept through these jams, […]

Threefer: Kid Cudi

January 7, 2021 by

On December 11th, 2020, multifaceted Cleveland-native rapper Scott Mescudi, better known as Kid Cudi, released the long-awaited Man on the Moon III: The Chosen. Kid Cudi released the first two albums in the beloved trilogy, […]

Threefer: Gerry and the Pacemakers

January 5, 2021 by

Gerry Marsden, frontman of the British rock band Gerry and the Pacemakers, passed on January 3, 2021 at the age of 78. Gerry and the Pacemakers have many parallels with The Beatles. Both groups were from Liverpool and got their start at the fabled Cavern Club. Both were managed by Brian Epstein, signed to EMI, […]

Threefer: New Year’s Tunes

January 3, 2021 by

Happy New Year! Several years back, I made a playlist of about 30 New Year’s songs. Nearly one-fifth of those songs are no longer on streaming. [A big advantage of owning physical media is that the songs are there to stay, but that’s a subject for another article]. In this Threefer, I recommend three of […]

Threefer: Jerry Reed

January 1, 2021 by

Not long ago we were driving through gator country on our way to no place in particular, when the the old radio cued up “Amos Moses,” a tune I recall from my youth. It reminded me of how Jerry Reed stood out to me in the 70s, an era of country stars who could really […]
