Dirty Fuss: American Animals Album Review

By Tanner MeadowsMusic Journalist Artist: Dirty FussAlbum: American AnimalsRelease Date: March 3, 2019Website: Dirty Fuss is a rock band; no more, no less. Their sound seems nostalgic for a period/style of rock that kind of feels like it’s just finished wrapping up, e.g., Cage The Elephant or Jack White (the first two bands listed under the group’s ‘artists we also like’ tab on Facebook). That being said, they do […]

From Rock to Rap: The Art of Moshing

By Amanda Compian Rap Music Journalist The mosh pits preparing to rage to “Wild for the Night.” Photo by Amanda Compian. If one thing’s for sure, there’s no such thing as a spontaneous generation. Every era contains inspiration from the ones before it and music is no exception.

A Living Legend: Sir Paul McCartney

By Hannah Alvarado Web Content Contributor There were thousands of people, all jam-packed together in a group on that humid, gray and overcast afternoon in Austin, Texas. We all shuffled along slowly forward, but with growing anticipation, into the various lines that had formed.

MR Fest 2017 Artist Profile: White Dog

By Hannah Pierce Music Journalist To define Austin-based band White Dog as JUST rock’n’roll feels like a gross understatement. This 5-piece group’s sound has obvious influences in genres ranging from heavy psychedelic to space rock, and from psych rock to proto metal. Claiming to have been “cryogenically frozen” in 1971 by Richard Nixon, the band's 70s influence is undeniable. This inspiration can be heard on their two-track single, Verus Cultus/Witch Queen. […]
