20 Best Local Albums of the Year

Dallas Observer

Denton's Pearl Earl has had a banner year. The psych rock group, which comprises four women (Ariel Hartley, Stefanie Lazcano, Bailey Chapman and Chelsey Danielle), got its music to a larger audience in 2017. Getting tapped to open for Tripping Daisy at its blow-out reunion gig at Club Dada helped, as did the release of Pearl Earl's self-titled debut through Fort Worth's Dreamy Life Records. It was nominated for Best Album at this year's Dallas Observer Music Awards. Title track "Meet Your Maker" also earned a nod for Best Song. Caroline North

DAM AWARDS 2018: Song of the Year


Bono recently claimed that rock n’ roll “has gotten very girly.” Well, if “girly” rock n’ roll is wrong, we don’t want to be right. Straight out of an indie coming-of-age film’s exposition (or credits, as it was used in the ode-to-Denton short film I Stand Alone), Pearl Earl’s “Meet Your Maker” is a psych-rock feast for the ears. The band is notorious in Denton for its all-woman composition and an all-around amazing roster of musicians, but this song stands apart for its groovy instrumentation, catchy progressions, and politically-charged words. The quartet of Pearl Earlians deliver their self-described genre of “rainbow fuzz power” while reciting lyrics that should resonate if the 2017 news left you asking, “How could they even vote for a man/who paid a million for his tan?”


Levitation 2018 Lineup Announcement

Friday Double Feature: HURRICANE PSYCH

Pearl Ear’s heart-eyed Bowie sounds landed them on She Shredsover the summer for a debut of “Captain Howdy.”  When the Denton trio-turned-four-piece leans furthest into garage power-pop, it always sounds as if they’re painting over something dark. And they out themselves as ghosts (cover: aliens) in the gleefully abrasive “Meet Your Maker” video. Haunting a psychedelic backdrop in palest pink catsuits and lipstick, the original trio appears intermittently to dance and play their instruments. Artist Alex Aulson provided analog visuals that go from neo-psychadelic chaos to sharper geometrics and back again. Pearl Earl plays Friday at Texas Theatre after a screening of 1970 British crime drama Performance featuring Mick Jagger at his most gorgeous.
