Enjoy. Jay Som – Hot Bread Jay Som just put out a new 7″, but this is actually from a Valentine’s Day compilation that’s been assembled by Amazon.  I really love it when the horns kick in midway through the song. Wye Oak – The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs Here’s the title [...]

Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

HHHF

Honestly, one of the hardest things for me is coming up with something to say that’s new every month for this blog. I’m mostly afraid of putting any real opinion on the internet, and I rarely have any epiphanies regarding music that would be worth writing online; I just like it and listen to it [...]

Movie Breakdown: Maze Runner – The Death Cure

Maze-Runner-The-Death-Cure-Trailer-Preview

Pre-Screening Stance: Will Maze Runner – The Death Cure be the walk-off home run that the series so desperately needs in order to make the YA film hall of fame?  Probably not, but I’ve seen weirder things happen. Post-Screening Ramble: Maze Runner – The Death Cure is long, boring and dumb.  I can’t say I [...]

There’s a variety of quality shows to pick from this week, but my eyes are largely on Wolf Parade at the Mohawk this Friday.  Last year, the veteran act put out Cry Cry Cry (their first album since 2010), and I not only placed it on my best of 2017 list, but I tagged it [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Say Yes 2018 (Randy)

Raised Eyebrows F

I hate to start my year by re-thinking the last, but it seems to be my path over here at SOTO. 2017 continues to be a year of oddity and occasional brilliance (musically anyway.) The music created/released/reissued is a great example of its bizarro irregularity. Here’s a rundown of a few things I failed to [...]

Show Of The Week

ShowOTWF

I know that getting out for a show in icy Austin seems ludicrous right now, but the weather is actually supposed to be much more tolerable by tomorrow.  So, I believe that means you have no excuse to not go to Cheer Up Charlie’s tomorrow night for a rad local affair that features My Golden [...]
