LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he Austin Chronicle's Kate Messer strums some memories of bonding with Velvet Underground guitarist Sterling Morrison over a guitar and a collection of picks.

Josh Rouse's words aren't always clear, and the threads of his lyrics don't follow linear narratives, but the songs have a strangely mesmerizing, emotionally resonant effect.

The Dells numbered among soul's elite, specializing in creamy, quasi-erotic material, presented in an adult, no-nonsense manner that could be sentimental, but never trite or overwrought.

Also, the return of Papas Fritas, ideological hip-hop from Dead Prez, and more.
