Descender, Trophy Wives, Nervous Curtains at Double Wide
A heavy but measured affair that balanced singer Casey Hess' pained invocations with a rougher, guitar-driven edge, 2011's Dark Water set the metronome for Dallas four-piece Descender. Doesn't hurt that the band is made up of members of Dallas bands like Doosu and Slow Roosevelt — people do love nostalgia here. Pair that with fellow locals Nervous Curtains and their Chicago-based Latest Flame labelmates Trophy Wives, and you've got a solid lineup of heavy stuff, and probably a few tempo tantrums.
