Superfónicos is an eight-piece Austin band formed around a love of Colombian and African music, mixed with funk and psychedelic rock. On Suelta–the group’s debut EP, produced by Brownout’s Adrian Quesada and Grupo Fantasma’s Beto Martinez–all these sounds collide with the force of a runaway train. And that’s exactly what the band’s My KUTX episode feels like. Bassist Nico Sanchez, guitarist Erick Bohorquez, and gaitero and singer Jaime Ospina put together a mix that’s dizzying and highly danceable. Hear Superfónicos’ My KUTX on Saturday, October 6 at 6 p.m. or listen anytime at the bottom of the page. You can see the band live at ACL Fest on Sunday, October 14th at 12:15 p.m. on the Tito’s stage.
