The Bearding Hotels

Telegraph Canyon’s folksy predilections aren’t all gone, but they have been supplanted by some experimental sonics.
Jeff Prince
Lead singer Chris Johnson lowered the keys when arranging songs on Telegraph Canyon’s just-released third album You from Before. It was a subtle but important decision. Johnson’s razor-thin tenor anchors the sound. But sing...

If you lived in or around the Fort in the late aughts and ever even glanced at this column, you would know that my love of Tame … Tame and Quiet is matched only by my love of family, the great Satan hisself, and New York-styl...

Matthew McNeal, Shadows of Jets, and The Vandoliers prove the Fort is hot.
BY KRISTIAN LIN, JEFF PRINCE, AND STEVE STEWARD
Matthew McNeal’s Compadre The opening electric guitar lick on Matthew McNeal’s new debut album grabbed my ear from the get-go. The lick sounded kinda country, kinda rock, and I was wondering which direction we were about to...

The Longshots: Mucho Mango

Hearsay
The Longshots have a new album up their sleeves. Look for Inhaler this winter. But before then, it will be all Mucho Mango. That’s according to co-frontman Joey Gorman. Not long after the gritty Rolling Stones/Clash-influence...

New tunes are coming at you from Bosque Brown, War Party, and Sarah Jaffe.
BY EDWARD BROWN, JEFF PRINCE, AND STEVE STEWARD
Bosque Brown’s Us If I were a heroin addict, Us would be my new favorite record. But I’m a beer drinker, not a hophead. Still, I’m drawn to this music in a tangential way. Bosque Brown’s new album is perfect and wanting...

Vincent Neil Emerson and Jonathan Tyler lead the hit parade.
Fort Worth Weekly
Vincent Neil Emerson’s East Texas Blues Think about this: Leon Bridges’ and Vincent Neil Emerson’s respective sounds are dissimilar enough that the comparison might seem inappropriate, the former singing soul, the latter ...

This Life Could Be Your Tour

Like Dante’s Inferno, there are rings of band “success.” And 99 percent of them are long. And hard.
Steve Steward
I found the most tragicomic advertisement I’ve ever seen in the fall of 2008, when my old band, Darth Vato, was loading into a crappy bar in Longview to play a show. Stuck into a planter box littered with rocks and cigarette ...

Soft and Fuzzy — and Loud

After a lot of heartache, psyche-rockers Year of the Bear emerge with their monstrous debut album.
Steve Steward
A lot of the time, if there is a good garage- or psyche-rock show in town, Year of the Bear is on the bill. They’ve supported Austin’s Ancient River and Oklahoma City’s Stardeath and White Dwarfs multiple times. And now, ...

Music Awards Are Here

Hearsay
It’s that time of year when we get together and celebrate all of the awesome music –– and maybe even some non-awesome tuneage –– that was pumped out of our fair burgh over the past 365 days or so. And only because som...
