Ice Eater’s Don’t Care is a “welcome chunk of kaleidoscopic international flavor.”

Fort Worth produced a ton of good records this year, and there’s just so much to choose from that compiling a judicious list of favorites is nearly impossible. But trying is part of the fun, right?   10.) It’s a toss-u...


In diverging slightly from their standard m.o., Quaker City Night Hawks produced the best song to come out of the 817 in ’13. At least according to HearSay.

Best Local Songs of ’13

It’s not a comprehensive list, but it’s, uh, something.

FOTG: Indie Disco

Part of my generous, loving, cool alter-ego Anthony Mariani’s recent cover story (“Fort Rock,” May 9) was occupied by chatter –– verging on Pollyannish  –– about the Near South Side, specifically of the forthcomi...

Anthony Mariani
In the late ’00s, an independent label based in New York City, Norton Records, put out a three-volume set of songs from Fort Worth’s “teen scene,” a short period in the mid-to-late 1960s when teenage boys picked up musi...
