Music Feature
Twang rocker Joey Green’s new album was produced by the guy behind records from Wilco, Steve Earle, and Uncle Tupelo. Why is Green still stuck in the sports bar/barbecue joint circuit?

Killer or Filler?

There’s more to the Fort than indie-rock, as these new discs prove.
JIMMY FOWLER, ANTHONY MARIANI, AND JEFF PRINCE
So indie-rock has taken over Fort Worth. Not so fast, kemo sabe. There’s still more to Le Fort than smart, melodic, rough-around-the-edges rock. Exhibit A: the following newish recordings.   Joey Green’s Lo 5 Joey Gree...

Band names may change, but the spirit is still the same.

We’ve come a long way. When I took over as associate editor in 2002, a job that also included helming the music section and writing HearSay, at least 90 percent of our Music Awards ballot consisted of Dallas and Denton bands....



Pinkish Black has just released a cut from a forthcoming album, and it's a doozy.

Killer or Filler?

Fort Worth is awash in metal, hip-hop, and spacey yacht rock.
ANTHONY MARIANI AND STEVE STEWARD
As indicated by the ballot for our 16th Annual Music Awards, Fort Worth is pretty fertile artistic ground. So many albums. Seems like every other day a new one comes out. And not just albums, but EPs and singles too. Here’s a...


Idol schmidol. Casey James is still a force on the pop music landscape.

That Low-End Rumble

First, thank you for supporting local music. As you’ve probably learned by now, the best stuff doesn’t always come from someplace else. Like, say, Brooklyn or Portland. Or Boise. Sometimes your backyard is as fertile an art...


Featuring cover art by Tommy Surya, Southern Train Gypsy's sophomore album, The Bastard, is no-bullshit, swampy metal.

What a Bastard

Southern Train Gypsy’s got a great outlook and a killer new metallic CD.
ANTHONY MARIANI
Full disclosure: These guys bought me beers. We met a couple of days ago at a local restaurant around happy hour for an interview. I had three or four (five?) drafts. The guys had beers and burgers. When time came to say our go...



Dead to rights: Patriot purveys true singer-songwriter music.

Patriot: Fire, Brimstone

There are two sides to singer-songwriter Jake Paleschic.
JIMMY FOWLER
Shortly after singer-songwriter Jake Paleschic graduated high school in spring 2009, he packed his bags and moved from Fort Worth to Nashville. Some friends and fellow musos he’d hung out with at a coffee shop in Burleson, wh...


For American Bedouin’s debut album, Carter played the doumbek, a Middle Eastern hand-drum.

Man for All Seasons

Joey Carter doesn’t care what instrument he’s playing — the music’s all that matters.
EDWARD BROWN
Depending on which night you’re fortunate enough to catch local jazzbo Joey Carter, he could be playing anything. He’s been known to wail on the organ with local fusion pioneers Bertha Coolidge, tickle the vibraphone in str...



Ice Eater wants to be bigger than Fort Worth.

Ice Eater: Cold Comfort

Though the band has been around for a while, it’s only now surging.
ANTHONY MARIANI
Ice Eater is not a very Fort Worth-ish band. The guys can party with the best of ’em, but their music sounds like it came from outer space in the future. Though it’s definitely rock, it features elements of early disco, pun...
