Rummage Rock ’n’ Roll

LAST CALL
As this goes to print, I will have been sober for, like, I dunno, three whole days. No beer, no booze, no weed, not even so much as a sip from one of those adorable 8-ounce Coca-Colas that look hilarious and precious when clasp...


The crazy kids of Lindby are putting together a local all-star Christmas album.

A Lindby Christmas

HEARSAY
There are a lot of reasons to love the crazy-ass kids in Lindby. Talent? Sure. The youngsters have got loads of that. But to be able to marshal that aptitude in the service of catchy, poppy, choral-vocal-heavy songs that skim t...

Hanna Barbarians Redux

HEARSAY

The Solo Sol folks find themselves the elder statesmen and -women of a scene within a scene, all revolving around Dreamy Soundz.

Solo Sol: Dreamgaze

With walls of sound and lofty pedigrees, this Fort Worth sextet is finally arriving.
ERIC GRIFFEY
Sarah Reagan’s voice is to dream-pop sextet Solo Sol what Helen of Troy’s face was to the Trojan War, but instead of a thousand ships, Reagan’s languid, willowy pipes have launched a thousand songs. Co-frontman Robert Bra...


Oh Whitney is back.

Oh Whitney Volvemos

HEARSAY
Prodigal sons Oh Whitney have returned. But only for a couple of weeks. Fronted by Fort Worth native Peter More, the alt-Americana quartet has roots in North Carolina –– Duke University, specifically –– but also has spe...

Live Oak Finally Comes Alive

LAST CALL
On Saturday night, I looked around the Live Oak’s main room at the masses bouncing along to Skeleton Coast, dancing in a flood of the Fort Worth band’s spacey reverb and phased guitars. Bathed in green light from gel lamps ...


The Swindle Boys have had a busy 2012 and are returning to the shed to write more material.

No Swindlin’ Brothers

JIMMY FOWLER
Joey and Matt Swindle, the brothers who perform as the alt-rock duo The Swindle Boys, were raised in a devout Southern Baptist family in Little Rock, Ark. Their dad was a preacher and a truck driver. But lead singer-drummer-key...
