The KXT Local Show: Northlake, Maceo Plex feat. Ishi, Zebra Troop

This week brought new music out of Dallas from Northlake, a bitter ode to toxic relationships from The Chinaskis, and the 60’s tinged team up of Cryptolog with Fort Worth singer/songwriter Catho. Denton band Wirerims released the new alt track “Winter Sun”, and we even revisited Barcelona Dr. with Posival.

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 latest release from the Dallas indie rockers mourns a relationship as the magic begins to fade.


Maceo Plex feat. Ishi

Dallas-based DJ and produced Maceo Plex is known for creating immersive experiences for audiences on the club and festival circuit. It only makes sense that he’s teamed up with experimental artist Ishi for the new song “Moon Sky.”


Zebra Troop

Multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Brandon Shephard heads this Arlington-based alt-jazz/psych project.”Dopamine” doesn’t just bring the fun… it brings the funk.
