From the Publisher

For more than a decade, the music staff of The Dallas Morning News asked every artist it interviewed the same question: “What are you listening to right now?”

The answers were always interesting and often surprising: Jeff Beck recommending the Prodigy, Bono raving about Luscious Jackson, Elvis Costello admiring saxophonist Eric Dolphy, Flaming Lips leader Wayne Coyne revealing his love for the Bee Gees, the late Chris Farley getting serious about Van Morrison, Chris Martin of Coldplay being wowed by Arcade Fire. And you’ll never guess Ozzy Osbourne’s pick for best album of all time.

Spoon, who hail from Austin, have a wink

Wiley, Godfather The MC and erstwhile “Godfather of Grime” has of late cleaned up his underground U.K. rap sound for a poppier presentation.

Songs We Love: Cende, 'What I Want'

I am usually one to avoid bands with jokey names, but Cende snuck in with pretty, emo-tinged power pop before I could roll my eyes. (For the curious: The joke in question is a very funny Descendents reference.) The band is a Brooklyn supergroup of sorts, born of the members' cohabitation at a house venue called David Blaine's The Steakhouse and featuring guitarist and singer Cameron Wisch, who drums in Porches, and drummer Greg Rutkin from LVL UP. (The two are also joined by Bernard Casserly on bass and Dave Medina on guitar.) Cende's music fits between the heavy fuzz of LVL UP and the morose
