Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

We kinda figured we wouldn't be the only ones to dig on some of the Denton-based Bryce Isbell's latest work under his FUR moniker: Just over an hour ago, Pitchfork offered up its take on FUR's collaboration with Neon Indian frontman Alan Palomo, "Black Castles," a song we offered up as a free download back in November.

Says the taste-making site of the track: "'Black Castles', featuring Neon Indian's Alan Palomo, bears some of the sonic trademarks of that project: retrofuturist synths, drum machines, and some oddball samples to kick it off."

FUR's debut full-length on the currently Denton-raiding, Sacramento-based Waaga Records, Witches, will see its official release on February 23, you might recall. We're pretty excitedly looking forward to hearing more of the Isbell's futuristic electro-trance. But you already knew that.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
