Fort Worth chimed in big time this week with new songs from Yeah Huh, Abraham Alexander, Picnic Lightning, Ghoulsby, and 14-year-old songstress Abbey Munk. From Dallas, Kristy Kruger sent in a cover of Billy Idol’s White Wedding from her upcoming album Music For My Brother, The Sayers sent in the punk-tinged “Catch Up!” Jade Marie even chimed in out of Aubry with the new song “GOMO.”
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
Alexander wrote”Heart Of Gold” as a message to his younger self to stay strong during some hard times he faced as a child. It’s the first song he ever wrote, and this version was recorded at The Echo Lab in Denton.
I caught up with Yeah Huh when they dropped their first single, and now the duo is back with the thoughtful new song, “Candlestick Park.”
Jade Marie is originally from Florida and now calls North Texas home. She calls GOMO the breakup song you didn’t know you needed, and she’s right!
(Warning: this song contains language that some might find offensive.)
