Local Music Month is right around the corner! We had to warm up with new tunes from Mitchell Ferguson and Alexandra out of Dallas, Denton punk band Posival sent in their new song “Flyspeck” before their new album drops in November, and Plano artist Abby Nelson made her local show debut with the indie jam “Museums”. We also checked back in with Gratzi out of Lewisville, Spencer Wilson out of Allen, and Yeah Huh out of Fort Worth.
Check out the full playlist after the highlights, and if you are an artist from North Texas, be sure to submit your music here.
Ferguson sat down with KXT writer/photographer Waffles to talk about his new EP Whole Lotta Sauce. The title track is about going after what you want with a whole lot of ambition and self esteem.. or in other words “A Whole Lotta Sauce.”
The Dallas songstress teamed up with Matte Black Sound Company out of Fort Worth for her new song “Funny.” Alexandra says the southern-influenced indie pop number is about the fickle nature of day-to-day monotony. Catch Alexandra performing at ‘The Playlist’ – our free concert series with Sweet Tooth Hotel on October 27th.
The drum and bass project comes to us from Matt Spleen who was the front man for Dallas punk band The Assassins in the ’80s and spent time in X’s For Eyes in the ’90s. You’ll find “Morning Star” on his new album, Unrested.
