Squanto’s Color TV Death represents a new paradigm.

Squanto’s Spear of Density

There’s new music, and then there’s this Fort Worthian’s dark electro-pop.
Anthony Mariani
For fans of ’90s trip-hop, early Beck, glitchwerks, the poetry of John Ashbery and Jorie Graham, and music as people 30 and older probably treasure it, Squanto represents a sonic totem. “Ten was the last great album-album!...

Hate Your Friends Love Music

To this pop-punk-driven quartet, whining is for babies.
Steve Steward
An all-time classic “band dudes” conversation is the one that starts with “We should totally start a band together.” Usually there’s lots of complimentary banter bandied back and forth about mutual affinities for guit...

Vodeo’s Auspicious Debut

This yacht-rocking Fort Worth quartet’s self-titled EP is already a classic.
Anthony Mariani
These guys must get laid a lot. Not that having acrobatic sex with as many attractive people as possible is every musician’s dream, but … wait. Yes, it is. Anyway, not since The Hanna Barbarians or maybe even the John Price...


Jessie-Frye

New Local Music

Two pop-punk bands and a rocked-out songstress dropped new material.
Fort Worth Weekly
Jessie Frye’s Boys’ Club Jessie Frye has balance working in her favor. Her rich voice could easily work in the hands of a dance-pop producer, but she chooses a much more organic, rock-oriented approach. Following up her acc...



Fungi-Girls

Evolving Sound Emoji

Fungi Girls are critical darlings, but they aren’t afraid to change their tune.
Steve Steward
I’ll be honest. Interviewing a band by group text is sort of a bit, but seeing as how the three dudes in the Fungi Girls are only a few years out of high school, an interview via texts seems less like a clever conceit and mor...

Pinkish Black: Bury the Past, Eye the Future

The heavy experimental duo is set to release a new and old album.
KEN SHIMAMOTO
The year 2014 was a good one for Fort Worth’s heaviest, noisiest experimental duo. In the spring, Pinkish Black completed a West Coast tour with Italian progressive rockers Goblin, kindred spirits whose soundtracks for ’70s...

The Toadies, Ryan Tharp, Mean Motor Scooter, Red Shahan, and Cody Lee have new music for ya.
Fort Worth Weekly
Red Shahan’s Men & Coyotes (Magnolia Records) At first glance, “Men & Coyotes” seems like a silly name for a song, much less an album. And then the track begins playing, and I’ll never doubt Red Shahan again. Th...

Davis Chapman’s Moving Boxes There’s plenty to like about Moving Boxes, the debut album by Fort Worth’s Davis Chapman. In the end, however, a fatal flaw derails the project. Chapman assembled a crack team of local side mu...

Squanto’s Cyborg-Rock

It’s weird, it’s out there, and it’s aggressive, but this electronica is honest.
JASUN LEE
Don’t feel bad if the first word that comes to mind when describing Squanto’s music is “weird.” Rickey Wayne Kinney, the 30-year-old Fort Worth musician behind the moniker, tends to agree. “It’s weird music,” he s...
