This new track from the Dallas-based band finds them exploring slightly more organic territory than their debut full-length Landmarks, though with outstanding harmonies still intact. Currently independent of any official recording, this song is available for download at the band’s Facebook page.
On her sophomore release, Actor, Annie Clark ( a.k.a. St. Vincent) continues to woo listeners with her rich voice and lush orchestration. But don’t let the ethereal facade fool you. Clark’s lyrics reveal stories of dishonesty, anxiety, hurt and paranoia so beautifully, you may not immediately sense the dark undercurrents of her words. On “Actor Out of Work,” Clark sings of a toxic relationship headed for failure and the desire to push away from it. Check out the above video to see the singer-songwriter’s clever, yet eerie visual interpretation.
This track from 2004’s album Drag it Up features the signature energetic style of Old 97’s.

Lead singer Rhett Miller, is joining KXT for June’s sold-out Barefoot at the Belmont concert series and is a regular on KXT playlists.
