Rocks Off loves Fridays. It's the day we bring to fruition all the internet scouring that we've been doing over the past seven days, cooking it down to a nice readable digest of Houston music news, and gets to set a hot, steaming plate of goodness on the table.
The Mahas recently added local pedal steel prodigy Will Van Horn to their crew, giving their sound an entirely new dimension. Need some evidence? Check out this video on YouTube.
Ambient/electronic project Western Standards just posted a new album, Space Is a Place (above), on Soundcloud. Vinyl copies will be around in early 2011. For now, just stream it online.
10th Gräde Cütie might not be done after all. A recent Twitter update suggests that the band will be letting go of some B-sides and playing a few shows in the near future.
Giant Princess has a new video online for their song "Gunplay," listed as "part one" of Mexican Easter, the movie.
