A Rock Band’s Rock Band

Caliche Burnout is new to the scene, but its members have been around the rock block.
JASUN LEE
Collectively, the four guys in Caliche Burnout have amassed a century’s worth of experience playing in local bands. With a resume of past acts that reads like a who’s-who of North Texas heavyweights (Ghostcar, The Gideons, ...

New Local Music

North Texas scene veterans Clint Niosi, The Foxymorons, and Nervous Curtains have recently churned out new material.
Fort Worth Weekly
Clint Niosi’s Captives of Sense Clint Niosi’s third album is 10 tracks of mostly instrumental experimental sounds soaring over the pulse of quiet guitar, sly keyboards, and cavernous, dramatic drums. Recorded on a tight sch...

Moon Rocks

Alt-rock band Moon Grave has a new name and a new album in the works.
Edward Brown @EJB0017
Moon Grave has seen the good, bad, and ugly sides of a name. Until last May, the Fort Worth alt-rock trio went by the moniker American Holocaust. Everyone in the band felt it had a cool, gritty ring to it –– frontman Andrew...

A Quick Buzz

Ill Smiths have a new record and outlook — and, soon, a new name.
ERIC GRUBBS
For a band that technically didn’t form until the summer of 2015, Ill Smiths have quickly become one of the buzziest acts in the 817 and the 214. Despite a press kit consisting of only three songs on Soundcloud.com/ill_smiths...



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

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...
