The KXT Local Show: Morningbuzz, L25, Gratzi

This week was slam-packed with new music from all over North Texas. From Fort Worth, we heard the new single from Morningbuzz and Ben C. Jones dropped the new song “Black Beach Boy” ahead of his performance at 817 Day this year. From the North, Jeffrey Michael Widman sent in “Good Cry” from Plano, and Gratzi chimed in out of Denton. We even heard from Billy Star out of Wylie- the band has released a new album, Heavy Lifting, after playing SXSW last March. From Dallas, L25 made her Local Show debut this week, Boy Epic told us all about “Gelato & Dope” and Joshua Flores released the smooth new single “Do You Mind”.

You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.



The Fort Worth indie-rockers are kicking off their tour in their hometown at Main At South Side before hitting Tennesee, Georgia, Florida, and Oklahoma. “plshutup’ showcases the band’s anti-pop and effortlessly cool sound.



Dallas artist L25 says she paints vivid spacey pictures for her fans that can be felt through time and space on a soul level. This totally comes through in the steamy video for “Lifted”.

(Warning: This song contains explicit language.)



Four music teachers from Denton formed Gratzi at the height of the pandemic. The group member’s individual tastes in music combine perfectly to create the song “Stella”.
