Dallas Music News: The Deathray Davies Are Back, Dallas Rappers Need Your Support
By David Fletcher, April 2, 2021
Below is an excerpt from Dallas Observer’s Dallas Music News that features Ottoman Turks and The Deathray Davies:
“Heralded as an “Artist You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone, Ottoman Turks will release II to streaming services and record stores April 2. The band has released five tracks over the course of the pandemic in anticipation of the new album, each with an accompanying video, with the last “Conspiracy Freak” premiering on the Rolling Stone website a couple of weeks back. The band will celebrate its second release alongside The Deathray Davies this weekend at the Granada Theater.
Speaking of The Deathray Davies, they too will be releasing a new album. Time Well Wasted is the band’s first since 2005’s The Kick and the Snare, and it picks up right where the band left off 15 years ago, earning four out of five stars from American Songwriter. Singer John M Dufilho told the magazine that the band “actually recorded a sixth record in our downtime … a giant beautiful mess — 40 songs, tons of experiments, collaborations … but I kind of lost my mind trying to get it right and then I jumped ship. I listened to it not too long ago, and I was surprised to find I loved it. I’m hoping to release that one next. Officially, we’re releasing record number seven now, and then we’ll go back and put out record number six.”
