Choice Cuts: Daron Beck of Pinkish Black's 10 Favorite Records

In a new series, Choice Cuts, Jonathan Patrick talks with artists, both local and international, about their favorite records.

Pinkish Black is perhaps the most internationally celebrated of all current DFW acts. Their two LPs, Pinkish Black and Razed to the Ground, were critical darlings, garnering near-unanimous praise throughout the music press. This Friday, the duo (Jon Teague and Daron Beck), alongside Unconscious Collective and Curse, plan to put on one hell of a Halloween show at Fort Worth's The Chat Room. In anticipation of Friday's affair, we caught up with Beck, who plays keys and sings for Pinkish Black, to discuss his favorite records.
