    Mudhoney, Meat Puppets

    As the Seattle grunge pioneers cruise toward their 35th anniversary, Mudhoney celebrates their hard-won longevity with last year’s reissue of 1991’s Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge with a rousing tour to prove they haven’t lost a step. Frontbard Mark Arm still yowls like Jason Beghe on the electric chair, and the band’s garage grunge (garunge? grarage?) still hits like a club made of ponderosa pine. Still led by the Kirkwood family (with brothers Curt and Cris now joined by Curt’s son Elmo), Arizona/Austin’s ever abiding Meat Puppets open with their patented acid-drenched and desert-fried cowpunk.

    Maxo Kream

    Houston street bard Maxo Kream brings his unique brand of contemplative storytelling to Emo’s this Saturday. The 32-year-old is in his prime right now, carving out his own lane as a veteran of both the rap and the dope game following critical major label successes Brandon Banks (2019) and Weight of the World (2021). Over stark beats, he delivers every detail of the hood life without any romance: witnessing his first shooting before he even lost his virginity and the baby daughter his dead brother is missing out on. Never any fluff, there’s no unnecessary preaching, because he’s a “Cripstian” first.

    Girl Ultra, Jasper Bones

    Torch(song)bearer for Mexican R&B en Espanol, Girl Ultra said she leaned on divination pre-pandemic, to provide “a map of people before I meet them.” Today, 26-year-old Mariana de Miguel prefers to discover people on her own. Her music, ostensibly as rare as a snowball’s chance (see: dearth of Mexican R&B stars), has transformed similarly, perhaps also motivated by the urge to exist in “the depths of experimentation.” From a string of organic, sultry-smooth R&B comes Al Sur, an EP doused in house, UK garage, and indie rock. “I have many reasons why I shifted Girl Ultra’s path,” says de Miguel. “It was fueled, of course, by all these club-era moments that I lived when I was younger.” Four new songs plumb her early-Aughts electronic habits, and three skew rock. Gently skittering UK garage song “Para q te acuerdes de mi,” is her favorite of the EP. “All of these awakenings that happened to me in the south of Mexico City when I was a teenager – I was trying to replicate these new feelings about love, sex, music, about friendships,” she said. Raves and rock aside, de Miguel recently connected with Austin producer/luminary Adrian Quesada to feature on forthcoming LP, Boleros Psicodélicos, and is collaborating with Canadian funk duo Chromeo on an all Spanish language album. Typical Scorpio energy.
