Billy Harvey’s Headed Toward Danger
Billy Harvey recorded his new album over the last year in Austin, Santa Fe, and Los Angeles. Having released three previous LPs and one EP, plus touring for years, he’s developed a unique sound. Dear Danger, has a pop patina and singer-songwriter essence. He plays in-store at Waterloo Records today, 5pm, and four hours later at Strange Brew.

Nina on Netflix
Cable television of the new millennium – Netflix – could finally offset its absurdly long load time by becoming a home to rock docs. Another “Netflix Original,” What Happened, Miss Simone?, has raised a field holler of hosannas for its documentation of folk, jazz, and civil rights activist Nina Simone. A review of it is quite simple: Devastating.

Good Field Swears It’s Just “Business”
“Good Field’s mellow shoegaze sound traces back through principle Paul Price’s former acts, with hints of indie pop darlings Voxtrot’s melodic crispness and Brazos’ atmospheric wash.” So writes Doug Freeman about the locals’ second LP, Future Me, out today. The review appears in our August dish of Mondo Platters, but a posh video for the disc sells it now.

10 Minutes with Stephen Stills
Texas-born Stephen Stills talked about his unfinished autobiography, teaming up with guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg in the Rides, and his love of the blues, all while throwing the occasional barb in the direction of his bandmates of almost 50 years, David Crosby and Graham Nash. Stills performs tonight at the Paramount Theater.

The Wrong Kind of Rebel Rock
In 1994, Primal Scream released fourth LP Give Out But Don’t Give Up. “Why does a Scottish band have a Confederate battle flag on its cover,” I wondered. Seemed as silly as the moment Dublin’s U2 discovered its Delta blues roots on The Joshua Tree. A deeper unease permeated Primal Scream using a symbol so drenched in a legacy of racial conflict and oppression.

The Dogg’s Honest Truth About Beatle Barkers
He lied like a dog. As part of the cover package in this week’s Chronicle, I wrote that Swamp Dogg was the soul shouter behind Beatle Barkers, a 1983 LP that features barnyard animal noises played in the tune of Fab Four classics. Turns out that’s not quite accurate.

Death Grips Bash & Dash Mohawk
There was no prelude to Death Grips’ Saturday night stranglehold at Mohawk. The Red River mainstay had been stuffed since shortly after 8pm, but no opening act, no DJ, no prerecorded music set the mood. Just hundreds of hot, restless bodies anticipating a kinetic experience.

Marilyn Manson vs. Smashing Pumpkins: Draw
“I’m like, legit scared right now,” confessed a nearby crowd member as Marilyn Manson, face-painted and eerie, crept onto the ACL Live stage last night. Brass knuckles mic in hand, the L.A. shock rocker commenced Sunday’s co-headline tour alongside the Smashing Pumpkins with “Deep Six,” from this year’s Pale Emperor.

Wreckless Eric’s Bubblegum Dementia
In 1977, the year punk broke, Wreckless Eric released sensational punk-pop hit “(I’d Go the) Whole Wide World.” Born Eric Goulden, he became part of a songwriters cell on Stiff Records that included Elvis Costello, Ian Dury, and Nick Lowe. Like his label mates, Goulden’s lyrics remain brutal, abstract, poignant, funny. He plays Saturday at Strange Brew.
