Silver Bars - Center Of The City Lights

I’m jazzed to write this review for multiple reasons.  This band contains two people (Paula & Stephen) that are dear friends of my brother and sister-in-law and this album is really fuckin good.  Silver Bars have been at it for about 4 years in Austin, TX.  I’ve heard the evolution of this band within just the past few years.  I saw them live during SXSW about 2 or 3 years ago and at that time the material was slightly different…more mellow and dare I s...

Cactus Flowers

If you were to ask me which local Houston band I am really into right now, it would be the fantastic trio called – CACTUS FLOWERS.  The band recently had Walter Carlos of FUNERAL HORSE on bass, but he has recently stepped aside due to his busy schedule with FH.  Their BandCamp page indicates the new bass player is Paul Chavez.  The core of the group consists of Jessica Murillo on vocals/guitar and Mark Carcamo on drums. The band classifies themselves as Psych...

Dream Theater - Distance Over Time

After 1992’s incredible ‘Images And Words’ album I kind of lost interest in Dream Theater and only passively skimmed/listened to the albums they put out after that.  I may have done myself a disservice, but as any other avid music fan; my ear gravitated towards other and different types of music at that time and I found the epic/lengthy/prog of Dream Theater to be self-indulgent and masturbatory.  I don’t know what re-kindled my interest…maybe the prospec...

My Favorite Albums Of 2018

My 2018 was plagued with much pain and misery.  A very difficult divorce started things off with the ending of a relationship of 7 years.  It still makes me shudder as to how it all went down and how my now ex-wife conducted herself.  There was the difficulty of dealing with my parents by myself during their twice a year visit from overseas.  There was frustration surrounding the current political/social climate.  Being single again and navigating the adversarial and sha...

KOMATSU - "A New Horizon"

KOMATSU - the Super Massive Mothersludgers from Eindhoven have returned with their latest full length offering out now on Argonauta Records.  The album entitled “A New Horizon” is a fantastic slab of Stoner Rock heaven.  Mo Truijen’s (guitar/vocals) voice is majestic and powerful as it soars over dense layers of massive groove.  The instrumental track – “Surfing A Landslide” is a moody psychedelic number that takes the listener on a hazy and hea...

King Chiefs

The starving artist.  From a historical perspective, the term invokes thoughts of Schubert, Van Gogh, and Poe.  But in the modern sense it makes one think of a person completely and utterly dedicated to their craft.  Where the dedication comes first and foremost before monetary gain.  I believe I know such a person.  His name is Paul Valle and he is at the helm of an awesome band called King Chiefs. Paul is a phenomenal song-writer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist.&...

My Favorite Albums Of 2017

It’s that time of the year again that I so look forward to…unveiling my favorite music of the year that has brought me sonic joy and helped get me through the present year with the sounds of incredible tunes in my ear holes. This year’s list encompasses even more variety than years past with bands/artists completely outside of the Heavy or Metal realms of the musical spectrum.  The list is also internationally diverse and many of the acts are either unsigned or signed to...

Afghan Whigs At The Heights Theater 10/26/17

If there was one word I had to use to describe last night’s performance by The Afghan Whigs, it would be Spiritual.  It was the first time I was seeing this storied band as I had missed them in the early 90’s when they played on the campus of The University Of Houston on the ‘Gentlemen’ tour.  First, I must mention the fantastic venue where this show was held – The Heights Theater on 19thStreet.  Tucked in between quirky boutiques, cafes, and res...
