This Thanksgiving we took a look back at just some of the songs that we’re thankful have been submitted this year. We listened back to favorites from Lou CharLe$, Parker Twomey, Tears, The Toadies, Sarah Johnson, Ariel + The Culture, and more!
You can see the entire playlist after this week’s highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, submit your music here.
“Shark Attack” is part song/part rage chant – and all rock and roll. My colleague Alec Spicer got the story behind the song when the video was released in July.
The North Texas staple is rounding out the year with a tour of Texas, ending with a show at Billy Bobs in Fort Worth on 12/30. “Sound And Vision” is a David Bowie cover that can be found on their latest release, Damn You All To Hell.
Lou CharLe$ feat. Kap G
(Warning: This song contains lyrics that some might find offensive.)
The Fort Worth rapper has had a stellar year- he released multiple singles, performed the last Louapalooza show at Tulips Fort Worth, and even opened up for Ludacris at Tannehill’s Tavern. CharLe$ teamed up with Atlanta rapper Kap G for “Wrong Reasons”, a great song that depicts a not-so-great relationship.
Tears followed up her Stitches EP with the reggaetone-tinged “Diamantes”. In typical Tears fashion, the song is accompanied by a stellar video.
Roberts recently released the video for “Dance With Me”, a song that captures what Saturday night feels like under the disco ball.
