No time for extensive notes this time. Starhead are from Denton, TX. I didn’t even know they had people there. Marazene are from Chicago, and bring the epic sweep at the end of “AnTiThesis.” The Thing With The Stuff is from Mars. The Red Light District are from LA and look like they put on a hell of a show. It’s never a new round of 4am without Kemper Norton. And The Face Of Human Error is an experimental musician from Dublin.

Discover them now. I hope you like what you find.

  1. good music

  2. There is actually a State University in Denton. It’s called the University of North Texas now. Back when I was there, it was North Texas State University, affectionately known as NUTS U.

  3. Yes i lived in denton for quite a while, now residing in austin. I think i may remember Starhead, so many bands up there. The good ones usually end up down here in ATX.

  4. God damnit awesome.

  5. Nice! Just a note, Being Alive is actually a collaborative work between The Thing With the Stuff and The Vengeful Stalactite (myspace.com/vengefulstalactite).

    Thanks!

  6. Being Alive is sweet. I love freaky soundscapes like that.

  7. Red Light District is something good for the ears too.

  8. Red Light District is great! Best round of music yet!

  11. Juliette from Red Light District here… Thanks to everyone for listening, and we are pleased indeed to be in such good company.

  12. You did not just type your e-mail address on the internet.
    Oh god, here comes the rich nigerian bankmen.

  13. Not only are there people in Denton, TX, but quite a few of them adore your work. At least the ones I know. It’s a lovely little magnet for freaks, nerds, artists, and other miscreants. It’s like the strange little cousin of Austin. But I assure you we’re mostly harmless.
