On the dreamy, spacey "The Light That Guides the Blind", HeadShy shows a knack for finding something soulful in the midst of a vast soundscape.

On "The Light That Guides the Blind", Austin's HeadShy shows a knack for finding something soulful in the midst of a vast space-rock soundscape. In the spirit of, say, Spiritualized, the track, which premieres here on PopMatters, combines drifting, searching vocals with cacophonous dream-pop atmospherics. "The Light That Guides the Blind" appears on HeadShy's new triple EP Belle Epoque, released this week on Medicina Records.

Robert Christgau's 'Is It Still Good to Ya?'

Robert Christgau is the rare critic who can write insightfully and passionately about a sweaty performance by a popular Congolese soukous band and a magisterial show by Senegal's Youssou N'Dour. That magic is captured in his latest anthology, Is It Still Good to Ya?
