Strays formed in Denton during the fall of 2016 with guitarist Ben Copeland, bassist Spencer Jones, and drummer Ben Scott. In January 2017, they released Smoker, an eerily charged long-range single-track demo produced by Michael Briggs at Denton's Civil Recording Studio. Strays returned to Civil Recording in the Spring of 2018 and produced Ritual, a four track EP of brooding instrumentals, which cemented the band's heavy psych sound. During the last half of 2018, the band took a brief hiatus from live performances to push each other into uncharted territory once again and challenge the threshold of their abilities. Strays returned to the stage and the studio in Spring 2019 with an indelibly matured sound and increasingly intricate songs. Jones' fuzzed-out riff-heavy bass now rides amidst paralyzing drones of theremin juxtaposed to Scott's methodical pounding. Copeland's incendiary guitar both drives and vaporizes, creating cosmic soundscapes of intermission that rise unassumingly into new assaults of sound and haunting vocal narratives. TIME | DEATH | VOID | DREAM is an unholy amalgamation of song and warfare! The album is an apocalyptic experience, an emergent journey loaded with grit and undoubtedly drug induced.

FELT & FUR
Last November, the electronic/synth trio's sophomore full-length album, Held made its debut release on Triptych Records. Held features organic spacious keyboards that breathe amiss reverb-laden static, and hissing drones to charge the air. Hypnotic, driving rhythms, spatial chord progressions and wistful guitar melodies form deep, repetitive, trance-inducing scapes of sound, all fueled by penetrating, enduring synth melodies aimed at a spacey oblivion, sealed with beautiful, agonizing vocals layered with rich tones, dynamic volumes and enormous emotional range.
The solo project of Kennedy Ashlyn, launched after the death of close friend and TAUT collaborator Cash Askew, a casualty in the sudden and tragic Oakland Ghost Ship Fire of 2016. Driven by loss, SRSQ became the vehicle for Kennedy’s transformation; exploring nuance, nostalgia, reflection, and reconciliation, manifesting in the aural landscape that is her latest album, Unreality. Like the impulses they pull from, each song on Unreality evokes the complex duality of meditation—where simple intersects with infinite. Ambient synthesizers that approach harshness, relentless arpeggiations act together with Kennedy’s vocals as a lush weapon, weaving cloud-like fables over orchestration that’s familiar and foreign. Trance-like at times, yet always rooted in cadence and structure, the synesthesia of sound and feeling takes cues...
Fort Worth's Kings of all that is Chill Wave Noir, Tidals is Joshua Wrinkle and Jeremy Lantz.
