What a week for local music! Dallas band little image sent in their alt-pop song “Out Of My Mind,” and we had to check out the six piece rap-metal group We Are Band Nerds. (Seriously, what a cool name for a band!) Fort Worth artist Keegan McEnroe released the bluesy ‘Boom Or Bust” from his new album, Agnes, and we listened to a brand new song from Ben C. Jones that Jackson debuted last week – and that you’ll only hear on KXT – the funky track “She’s Fancy.”
Check out the full playlist after the highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, be sure to submit your music here.
The Fort Worth indie band is back with the incredibly honest (and catchy!) “I hate all your friends.” This one is off of their latest full length release, Newskies Mixtape.
Pretty Boy Aaron feat. Tesia
The Dallas indie-hip hop artist worked on this song for about three years before releasing it – and the result is a total jam. Lucky for us it premiered on our website – KXT writer Preston Jones caught up with Pretty Boy Aaron to talk about the song and his creative process.
The Dallas based singer, dancer and composer is working hard on her debut EP. We got a sneak peak with the empowering “Moving Through Ruin,” a pop-dance number that showcases Boom’s stellar voice and was produced by Josh Goode.
