A few months ago, The Burning Hotels were asked by Dallas photographer/filmmaker Thom Jackson to write a song based on a video that he was shooting. Without seeing the footage, the Hotels came up with “Allison,” a track that in its heavily synth-inflected essence is quite a departure from the Fort Worth post-punk band’s normally propulsive and guitar-laden work. Still, “Allison” is quite a trip.

In anticipation of Exit 380’s forthcoming album, Townies, the band has released a video for the track “Moonshiner Run.” Released as a single in August as part of ASCC Now Cancer Organization’s Donate to Download campaign, the video is backdropped by parts of the Stockyards, North Side, and the area by Hulen and I-30.
