It seems as though Denton is really becoming the “Austin North” that Stillwater, OK claims to be with it’s rich Red Dirt sound. Considering Centro-Matic, Midlake and the recently disbanded Ghosthustler all have roots there that really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

But Mom, an electronic folk group from Little D, has one of the most soul stirring songs I’ve come across in quite a while. The group consists of Joel North and Bruce Blay, two UNT students. They use a lot of electronic equipment, sequencers, loops, samplers, to come up with their sound. It’s instrumental music you could give the parental units and you can both enjoy it. The Dallas Observer had a nice little piece on them recently, you can check it out here.

If you’re a fan of The Weepies or Wye Oak then you’ll like Mom.
