From Chase Hoffberger, The Austin Chronicle:
Royalty in Houston, the people's champ's age-old ethos: "It's a star-studded event when I valet park/Open up my mouth and sunlight illuminates the dark."
From Jay Trachtenberg, The Austin Chronicle:
When he's not sideman/producer with BoDeans, John Mellencamp, and Patti Griffin, local multi-instrumentalist Michael Ramos leads this funkified electro-cumbia juggernaut. Spinning traditional Latin, Tex-Mex, and Afro-Cuban rhythms with a modern electronic touch, the band's third album from late last year, El Brown Recluse, is a sonic carnival of delights.
