Top 10 Goth Songs From Houston Ever
The local goth scene in Houston has been around for quite a while. Though it's never been a dominating force in Houston music, its influence has been felt, and some truly remarkable songs have made their way into our little black hearts. Here's our pick of the Top 10 goth tracks released by local artists.
10. La Catrin, "Our Thirsty Throats": The former Heist at Hand member has become Houston's first perfect melding between pop and goth, with a rapidly building following that promises to put her on the national map soon. "Our Thirsty Throats" is just one of the many great tracks from her incredible debut CD, Humans Are My Keyboards, which recently dropped.
9. Morgue City, "Hey": Along with Asmodeus X, who was sharing the same bill, Morgue City was the first and only time we'd seen a local goth concert advertised on television. Spike the Percussionist has worked for as the music director for the CoRE suspension team, and Raul Bertot claims his pedigree from the Tone Zone Records bands like M-87 and Bozo Porno Circus. Trust us, those goth credentials are hard to beat in this town. Plus, "Hey" is one of the greatest basic performance-style music videos ever locally shot!
8. The Stage Frights, "She Creeps Me Out": The latest spin-off of Ex-Voto is minus the angelic voice of Spleen or the resounding baritone of Larry Rainwater, but Jonny Splat is slowly coming into his own as a consummate frontman. The band is still growing into whatever it will be, but the potential we see is undeniable.
