This week our sampling of local music takes us to Houston, where we find a fastrising group called The Tontons. First, yes, apparently their name is a play on the creatures from the Star Wars world, which is just the right amount of nerdy, I think.
Moving on, they're a relatively young band that released their second album recently, Make Out King and Other Stories of Love, which features Veida, the track seen here. In addition to making appearances in Rolling Stone, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, the Tontons were also televised on Dallas' big New Year's Eve event.
Enjoy and happy Friday!
