The KXT Local Show: Toadies, Ghost Cloak, Katrina Cain

This week brought us new songs from some of our favorite bands-  Toadies, Flickerstick, and Pageantry. Dallas artist N.E.V. teamed up with Grammy award-winning producer Malex for her latest, we heard Ghost Cloak‘s first release on Matte Black Sound, and Chancy brought us “Angels, Darling” which the band calls “your new soundtrack for wanderlust.”

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 band recently kicked off a tour in honor of the 25th anniversary of the album Rubberneck. The new EP, Damn You All To Hell, is a collection of four previously unreleased tracks, including this cover of David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision.”


Ghost Cloak

McKinney-based artist Hasan Naeem is the force behind Ghost Cloak and is the first artist signed to Matte Black Sound out of Fort Worth. KXT writer and photographer Waffles talked with Naeem and label co-owner Matthew McNeal about their partnership and the song “On The Line”, which is about depression and anxiety.


Katrina Cain

Cain splits her time between Austin and Denton but spent this week in Nashville performing at the Lone Star Shindig at Americanafest, which was presented by The Texas Music Office and Kessler presents. The video for “Gold” is a nostalgic nod to the country tv shows of yesteryear.
