The Rosemont Kings started the party this week with the “Rosemont Groove!” This week also brought us the highly anticipated new single from Dallas band FIT. Dallas multi-instrumentalist Corey Breedlove sent in the new track “Go With The Flow”, and we checked in with The Troumatics out of Fort Worth. And a big congratulations to Denton-based project The Rocket Summer – the new track “Stuck Inside Your Light” was listed as one of the Songs You Need To Know This Week by Rolling Stone.
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 Rosemont Kings
The Rosemont Kings was created on South Rosemont Ave. in Oak Cliff. The ensemble’s latest release is an upbeat number that features signature horns and soulful sound. A groove, indeed.
DAMOYEE feat. Annie Elise
The Booker T. Washington High School graduate met Annie Elise while away at Berklee College of Music. The team wrote “BICY” about going home for breaks and missing their boyfriends until they returned. BICY= Boy I’m Craving You. Get it?
“Pleasure + Pain” is the group’s second release from recording sessions with producers Adam Lasus and Jordan Richardson, who have collectively worked with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo, and Ben Harper & the Relentless 7, and Ringo Starr, and many others. The band says the song is a slow-burning anthem to youthful daydreams of fading glory.
The Dallas-based dream pop band has been selected as an official artist for SXSW this year! Celebrate by listening to their latest single, “Lying Love.”
