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.

For fans of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Neutral Milk Hotel, Centro-matic, My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Baptists Generals
