Dallas band TEAM* seem to have a knack for creating sincere, energetic, polished, & layered indie rock (at times even bordering on pop rock) which these days has become a pretty crowded & boring sub-genre. “I Like It” comes off their recently released album “Good Morning Bad Day”, & while I’m pretty “over” albums I have to say – this is a good one. TEAM* will be playing the KXT Holiday Concert with Jungle at the Prophet Bar in Deep Ellum, one of several December shows I’m very excited about.

You know what you need today? Some new wave-ish goth electo. In order to fulfill this need, the Infinite Playlist is here to bring you some fresh synths and snares from
Dallas’s Austin’s very own Mr. Kitty. Mr. Kitty is hip, cool, & playing Club Dada this weekend. Also, I think that’s Japanese on the album cover, correct me if I”m wrong.
Dude, Ty Segall’s show at Spillover Fest was crazy. Speakers were knocked over, Ty got hit in the face with a Lone Star (…or possibly a PBR), crowd surfing, mosh pitting. It was tons of fun. So much fun that you didn’t even notice the unseasonably cold weather once they started jamming on the outdoor stage.
Who doesn’t love twee pop drenched in fuzz? Weirdos, that’s who. These guys (and girl) rocked way harder than I was expecting them to based on their recordings. Check out the latest single from their upcoming album “Days of Abandon”.
After a few near misses due to schedule conflicts, I finally got to see one of my favorite new bands live, & they killed it. The Orwells were energetic & incredibly tight for such a fast paced & young band, even after the chaos of SXSW.
I was able to attend a few shows at this year’s installment of Spillover Fest in between keeping my prior Sunday commitments. It was a rad time, these next few Infinite Playlist posts will highlight the bands I got to see.
Check out this video by Dallas’s foremost rap group A.Dd+ featuring DJ Sober in the vid & produced by Nick Nack from Austin. Music video was directed and produced by OG of Luxury Mindz, who has also done productions for the likes of Gary Clark Jr. & J. Cole.
Dallas rapper Topic dropped his second album “Be Good and Do Well” on New Years Day. Topic’s lyrical prowess and unique socially conscious disposition are on full display. Paris Pershun of A.Dd+ joins on this particular track. The entire album is well worth a listen.
