The KXT Local Show: Bad Lives, Salim Nourallah, Angèle Anise

New music out of Dallas this week from alternative group Bad Lives, electronic artist Ishi, and Americana artist Salim Nourallah. We also revisited the retro-tinged new release from Fort Worth artist Abraham Alexander, had some “Key Lime Pie” with Denver Williams, and listened back to “Así Comenzo, Asi Termino” from Irving-based Spanish rockers Xiclone.

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


Bad Lives

The Dallas project is headed up by Jordan Taylor Thomas. Check out the fast-paced love song before the band embarks on a slew of shows (starting with the Ridglea Room in Fort Worth!) in March.

Salim Nourallah

Producer and artist Salim Nourallah is back with “The Sound Of Suffering”. The song is a reminder to look for love when in a dark place.


Angèle Anise

Slightly jazzy with a hint of blues and a voice that is both calming and powerful at the same time. Angèle Anise made her Local Show debut with “Safe to Say.”
