Kristy Kruger is a musical time traveler gripped by stylistic wanderlust. Her curiosity leads her to unpredictable explorations, placing aesthetic bets that her intelligence, talent and immense personal charm take straight to the bank. Each song is a wonder and a delight.

Rolling Stone

The album Upsetting is a testament to the band’s growth in the Dallas music community, featuring several songs with a chorus of a dozen or so voices from fans and other musicians in the Dallas music scene.

Dallas Observer

Joshua Ray Walker knew how to keep you guessing during his set at Rustic Tap on Saturday, rolling along to the rhythm of an 18-wheeler one minute and shifting into neutral for a loping bedroom ballad the next. The constant throughout for this country-tinged songwriter was his inexorable sense of storytelling, singing parables of self-reflection — and, oftentimes, evisceration — that were tortured by what his narrators could write in a song but couldn’t say in person. Punctuating his haunting arrangements with even eerier high-pitched yelps, Walker finished things off, alone and seated in a chair, with the bold imagery of “Canyon.” J.G.

Rolling Stone

All at once complex, ethereal, elegant, and substantive; provoking though about the choices and situations in daily life

No Depression

The songs on the album, The Immaculates, were written and partially recorded over a number of years by Longhorse. The album is resolutely low-fi: According to Longhorse, a lot of the guitar and vocal tracks were recorded in his kitchen. With his renewed focus, he pulled Prickett and Wakefield in to complete the recordings. The album fully captures the diversity of musical styles and ideas that have held his attention over his fifty years of playing. Bottleneck blues, circus polkas, Waits-style ballads, it’s all there — the ideas finally given the life immortal of a release.

SEPTEMBER 2, 2016, Dallas Observer

Dallas Observer

A self-proclaimed “outlaw country garage rock” band from Dallas, Ottoman Turks have logged a decade as underground cult favorites, with the bandmates attracting more attention for their solo projects and side hustles. That’s set to change this summer, when the group’s debut LP arrives. “Glass Bottles” leads the charge, updating one of the country music’s most treasured traditions — the drinking song — with self-deprecating humor and modern references to Facebook.

Rolling Stone

Drawing on influences such as Joyce Manor, Modern Baseball, Tiger's Jaw, and Title Fight, the album tackles the greatest pains with the greatest joys.
