Music Recommended
Charlie Hunter Trio
  August 4, 1995
"...Headlining are the Fuck Emos, who push their designer drug of the afflicted (downers, of course) in heavy doses of mind-bending lumber-groove. Supporting are a couple of bands from Chicago's Skin Graft label: The windy city's Mount Shasta have been through before with their screaming and raved-up guitars, while Space Streakings are four "totally-wired" crazies from Japan, who subvert cartoon mania into high-tech chaos..."

Playback: ACL Mania
The ACL zeitgeist in review
Music Column  October 19, 2012, by Kevin Curtin
"...Astonishing as it was, the time came for me to turn around and run to the other side of the park. I looked like a maniac, jumping over blankets, dashing in front of the Porta Potties, and sprinting through an onslaught of sandal-wearing drunk dudes, but the loudening of Neil Young's eternal voice and the big crunch of Crazy Horse's amps carried me on...."

Kate Pierson's inner bongo mania
Music Story  September 25, 2009, by Margaret Moser

Lust for Life
The 2015/16 Austin Music Awards' bedrock mania
Music Story  March 10, 2016, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Blues' local bad boys arrived mostly too late for the Eastside's Chitlin Circuit even while hauling its bedrock mania back across the railroad tracks to the still dirty heart of Sixth Street. Surface-wise, their counterpart punks represented a spontaneous, anti-mainstream alternative to such musical patriarchy, only their hardcore funk accents grew from the same root source their greater movement sought to overthrow..."

Alvin and the Chipmunks
What's it all about, Alvin? This by-the-numbers attempt at a chipmunk revival is not bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Film Review  December 14, 2007, by Marc Savlov
"...Show's Cross is a duplicitous record mogul, who plays nice with Dave while conniving behind his back (boo!), and Richardson is the mutant-model-photographer-chick-thing Dave's all gooey on. Will true love prevail? Will Dave grow a backbone (and some real songwriting talent)? And most important, will Alvin, Simon, and Theodore survive this bland new form of chipmunk mania? They shoot rodents, don't they?..."

Music Story  August 30, 2013, by Tim Stegall

Front page stars of the 'Chronicle,' from Black Angels to Ume
DAILY Music  July 14, 2012
"..."When we first started, I don't think either of us had any expectations at all," says singer/guitarist/drummer Conrad Keely nine days earlier, as he and Trail of Dead co-founder Reece relax among the Japanese lanterns and rusted patio furniture of campus-area coffee den Spider House. The clicking laptops and hum of hipster conversation are light-years away from the Midtown mania surrounding Letterman's Ed Sullivan Theater. – The Mob House Rules: … And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead use their inside voices on 'Worlds Apart' by Christopher Gray, Jan..."

Music Story  November 27, 2009, by Margaret Moser
