As my life in Texas draws to a close, I find myself reflecting on the musicians who inspired me to shut up and listen. I leave discerning listeners and local music advocates with one last call for attention: my dear friends, Trebuchet are at last revealing the intellectual rock album they have been quietly toiling away at in Denton. Bands in North Texas have a hard time keeping it together. Not Trebuchet. They keep writing. They keep playing together. They get better and smarter and make more music. In their latest video,”Lies and Delusions,” director Patrick Flaherty brings Trebuchet’s individual personalities to light in a dark and intimate manner. I can’t wait to see the feature film in the works.
But don’t take my word for it. Listen.
Celebrate our inevitable demise at Hailey’s Friday night and get the new album, Said A to B, on limited edition vinyl.
Watch Trebuchet kidnap me on TCS (also directed by Patrick Flaherty). I can’t watch it beyond the abduction scene — what with the Post Traumatic Interview Disorder — but I can tell you the best part about Stockholm Syndrome is the music. Enjoy our sadistic jaunt down memory lane.
Special thanks to Bethany Jelks.
