It took them a little while (since the late '90s) but Metric has made it. Big. The group's 2009 release, Fantasies can take most of the credit for that when they unleashed the addicting, head-bobbing and shoulder-swaying hit "Gold Guns Girls." Sexi ... More >>

When combined with his prodigious talent and seemingly tireless work rate, it's easy t ... More >>

Robby and Jennifer Rux greet me at the front door of an old brown fourplex, nestled comfortably on a tree-lined street in Fort Worth's Fairmount Historic District.

35 Denton just announced the opening act for Wednesday's rescheduled Jesus and Mary Chain show will be San Francisco shredder Ty Segall, whose 2011 Goodbye Bread LP contained the perfect right brain/left brain of pop and distortion.

Bon Iver's Justin VernonIt's a risky career move, holing up in a cabin in the woods to create a debut album, but for Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, it seems to have paid off in spades. Between nods from Kanye West and the success of his R&B side project Gayngs, his highly anticipated self-titled s ... More >>
