Remembering Davy

An Oklahoma man lost a lifelong friend with the passing of the Monkees’ Davy Jones.


Music

Matt Carney
Even before (and well after) Larry White moved to Los Angeles in 1974 to manage the career of The Monkees’ Davy Jones, fun ensued.

Folk

Each year, Austin, Texas’ media smorgasbord known as South by Southwest draws visitors by the hundreds of thousands, each looking for the next big cultural thing. Wouldn’t it be awesome if that thing came from here?

Kill the Reflection — Together ... Apart ...

Sleigh Bells — Reign of Terror

2010’s hot indie innovators return without any new bells or whistles. Thank goodness.


Pop

Matt Carney

Cloud Nothings — Attack on Memory

Don’t be fooled by the title. This punk gem harkens back to days of plenty.


Rock

Matt Carney

Days of Lives

Embraced by critics, NPR and now Radiohead, Stillwater band Other Lives is on the brink of exploding big beyond our humble borders.


Music

Matt Carney
Sitting opposite a large mural of themselves at Jericho Tavern in Oxford, England, three members of Radiohead watched and listened intently as Other Lives played 45 minutes’ worth of the somber chamber pop that the Stillwater group has spent near a decade refining.
