The debut full-length from Fort Worth's The Theater Fire is an unique
out-cropping in the landscape of Texas music. Carefully combining
traditional country music influences with mariachi, folk, and blues
infused rock the band create a complex and layered sound which
is at the same time sparse and well focused.
Forget all you know about "cowboy-chic", this is modern Texas music.
The band are masterful storytellers weaving tales of gamblers, lonely
travelers, and murdered children. This blends with the music to create
a dusty, faded mood. Like strange dreamy desert landscapes the
music passes slowly by.
