    Rodney Crowell, Lisa Morales

    Of all the phases of Rodney Crowell’s career – from Emmylou Harris’ young Hot Band guitarist to chart-topping country song slinger and Grammy-winning Americana statesman – none fit better than this decade’s return to his Lone Star roots. The Houston songwriter’s summer release Texas dishes duets in ode to the state. Southwestern chanteuse Lisa Morales opens.

    Maggie Rogers, Jacob Banks

    Maryland native Maggie Rogers made her Austin City Limits debut in June. The cathartic performance pulled from debut LP Heard It in a Past Life, an honest account of viral stardom via dance-pop punches. Touches of folktronica hark to the banjoist’s years before a takeoff video with Pharrell Williams, who endorsed Rogers’ idiosyncratic “Alaska” during her senior year at NYU.

    Maxo Kream, Q Da Fool, Slayter

    Houston’s Emekwanem Biosah Jr. cemented his place among H-Town heavyweights with July’s major label debut, Brandon Banks. The 29-year-old rapper of Nigerian descent makes the inner workings of trap life sound smooth. After all, he did manage to outlive a 2016 arrest for an “organized crime” charge and mocks failing district attorneys (“Pray 2 the Dope”).

    Danny Brown, Ashnikko, Zelooperz [garage]

    Peculiar-voiced, witty independent Daniel Sewell of Detroit went into debt after spending $70,000 clearing samples for 2016’s Atrocity Exhibition, but he’s back with fifth studio album uknowhatimsayin¿. Dropped Oct. 4 and executive produced by ATCQ’s Q-Tip, it loosely previewed last year on streaming site Twitch and features a much calmer MC.

    Fastball (album release), Deep Blue Something

    For seventh LP The Help Machine, Fastball enlisted producer Steve Berlin, who Tony “The Way” Scalzo admired via the multi-instrumentalist’s involvement with Los Lobos and the Blasters. “He helped us do things we never would have thought of ourselves and rammed it through in a short time,” reports the singer and stringer. Re-formed Denton hitmakers Deep Blue Something open.
