    D vs. d

    Moral dilemma: What do you do when one of the bands performing at your newspaper's very own showcase proves disappointing, and you feel compelled to write about it? Compelled, not because you want to be an asshole or because you maintain some inner d...

    Misdirection and Irony - Roy Bennett is a band and a guy and God knows what else

    When asked what disc is currently in his car's CD player, Ben Templeton's expression is one of bemused sincerity. "I listen to me a lot," says Templeton, singer-songwriter and guitarist for Roy Bennett, a relatively new entry into the Dallas music ...

    Back in Time - While Centro-matic revisited the past, Sarah Jaffe showed us the future

    I wouldn't call it bad luck, but Friday the 13th seemed to have some strange effect on the space-time continuum. After opening acts Sarah Jaffe and Dove Hunter cleared off the Granada's stage, we were transported back to 2001, when Joe Butcher still ...

    Li'l Cap'n Travis - Twilight on Sometimes Island (Glurp)

    From the sound of "My Ship Is Coming In," a smooth-as-silt track near the end of Li'l Cap'n Travis' latest platter, you'd assume the Austin sextet is manning the helm of a yacht-rock revival. You wouldn't be quite right, but only because the band ref...

    Pelican - City of Echoes (Hydrahead)

    On its third album, Pelican continues its quest to incorporate the best bits of shoe-gaze stoner rock and heavy music--and then flip the bird at the genre conventions of all three. Since debut album Australasia, the Chicago quartet has progressively ...

    Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (Merge)

    Five years later, Spoon's 2002 release, Kill the Moonlight, still feels new. In fact, it still has the acute ability to make listeners pace from room to room, clapping their hands, attempting bad imitations of Britt Daniel's raspy croon, wishing ther...

    W.A.S.P., L.A. Guns - Thursday, July 19, at the Palladium

    Feigned ironic excitement and flat-out ridiculing people who never left the Headbangers' Ball are probably the two most common reasons to attend this pairing of less-interesting GN'R predecessor L.A. Guns and shock-rock also-rans W.A.S.P., but there ...

    Moth Fight, Ghosthustler, Instruments - Sunday, July 22, at the Cavern

    Somebody call Pitchfork, cuz it's time to believe the hype. Denton's Ghosthustler is the real electronic deal, rolling up scuzzy, evil, synthetic riffs in a big spliff coated in angel dust and blowing them out at the audience. The consequences of att...

    Stan Ridgeway - Sunday, July 22, Club Dada

    Although tremendously talented, Stan Ridgeway can be both pretentious and annoying. Such disparagement does not prevent his music from being incessantly interesting however. With a vocal delivery like a James Cagney impersonator, the former leader of...

    What Would Jesus Rap?

    WWJR: We've never had any beef with church or church-goers--it's just that Sunday mornings are mostly good for sleeping, and those pews are even less accommodating than the kitchen floor, which is usually where we find ourselves, frequently facedown,...
