In reviving the freewheeling, eclectic sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, the Wheel have earned enthusiastic critical praise throughout their lengthy career; they have not only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music, but have also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form....

It’s startling to reflect on the fact that Austin’s Asleep at the Wheel, the modern standard-bearers of the native branch of country music known as Western swing, has been a going concern longer than the form’s most famous innovators, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with “American Slang” (released June 15). It has a surfeit of razor-sharp guitars, pounding drums and blue-collar, broken-hearted music poems penned by Gaslight Anthem lead singer/guitarist/honcho Brian Fallon.

“Transference” might not be Spoon’s best album — and in Austin, where “What’s your favorite Spoon album?” is one of the first questions we ask potential romantic partners, it’s natural to try and place the record in the band’s hierarchy.

Although Tuesday night’s Spoon show at the Scoot Inn was one of the toughest tickets (all 650 were sold out in 15 minutes) in town, the 90-minute show had a somewhat relaxed feel, with the band woodshedding new numbers like show-opening “Writing To You In Reverse,” then bringing it home with such old faves as “Everything Hits At Once,” “Small Stakes” and a horn-free “The Underdog.”

There’s a great song from good old 1995 by the (currently Austin-based) songwriter Bill Callahan, aka Smog, called “Prince Alone in the Studio.” Broad and epic, with dramatic strings and stately pace, it imagines Prince perfecting a song. (“It’s three a.m. Prince hasn’t eaten in eighteen hours … It’s four a.m./ And he finally gets that guitar track right.”)

Look, we understand Marshall Mathers has had a rough couple of years. His early mentor and best pal Proof died in 2006. Rumors of grief-driven drug use and food binges abounded. Chances of a comeback seemed slim and shady, especially given the strangely placeholding feel of his 2004 album “Encore.”

A good chunk of the crowd that was on hand for M. Ward’s fantastic set on the WaMu stage hung around to see Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis perform. Like Ward, Lewis brought out a five-person band, and also like Ward, was a highlight of day one at ACL. Lewis’s solo work is in some ways an experiment in mixing genres, from rock to country to rhythm and blues. All of these forms were on display as she made her way through the set, captivating the audience the entire time.

For any remaining naysayers who doubted the prodigious shredding ability of ethereal singer-songwriter Annie Clark, better known under the nom de plume St. Vincent, second-guess no more.

A heady swirl of candy coated bleeps and bloops floated over the audience as the Swedish electro pop duo Icona Pop sound checked, drawing an early Friday afternoon crowd of maybe one hundred. It was an interesting mix of the curious and the already converted that gathered. Bearded guys, girls in bright neon tank tops and a shirtless dude with turquoise skinny jeans and matching glasses who clearly knew what was up.

“It’s been a while, hasn’t it,” Belle & Sebastian front man Stuart Murdoch asked the crowd about half way through the band’s set Tuesday night at ACL Live. The Scottish band, touring in support of an upcoming B-sides and rarities release, “The Third Eye Centre,” played to a full house at the 2,750-person capacity theater, offering a sampling of songs from their large catalog.

I love a good non-album single. They’re almost a subgenre of their own, a cult within the rock ‘n’ roll religion. The format is great — a brief musical comment, no more than three songs, none of the contextual weight of a full album.
