Tejas Brothers, "She's About a Mover/Give Me Back My Wig"
If you're looking for a poster band for the Texican thing, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better one than Fort Worth's Tejas Brothers. Currently gaining momentum due to heavy play on Sirius/XM's Outlaw Country station, the Brothers sound like a simplified Sir Douglas Quintet - sticking closely to the gringo-ized version of Tex-Mex Doug Sahm and Augie Meyers popularized years ago with songs like "Guacamole."
There's nothing much deep in lyrics like "Boogie Woogie Mamacita" or "Sweet Lolita" but the good-time vibe never ends. This is straight-up Texas bar music that might remind locals of a little more border-oriented Romeo Dogs. The Brothers are meant for a fast good time, not a Ph.D. dissertation on the meaning of their lyrics or their source of origination. - William Michael Smith
