Cox says that the working title of Deerhunter's upcoming studio album is Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?, which is appropriate given both Marfa, Texas's mystique and its high desert locale. “I think it's a title that is definitely at home right here. There is a feeling of disappearance here,” he says, ...

Marfa, Tex. — As 125,000 revelers raged each day at Coachella, an under-the-radar festival for music, art and film went down in West Texas' Chihuahuan Desert. But there is a reason Marfa Myths, a collaboration between Ballroom Marfa arts space and Brooklyn record label Mexican Summer that's ...

It's a pretty pitiful Texas travel record, but understandable. One of the benefits of Dallas is that it has so much to offer, and ...
